Wars of the Roses: the brand new historical series from Conn Iggulden - internationally best-selling author of the Emperor and Conqueror series. King Henry V - the great Lion of England - is long dead. In 1437; after years of regency; the pious and gentle Henry VI; the Lamb; comes of age and accedes to the English throne. His poor health and frailty of mind render him a weakling king -Henry depends on his closest men; Spymaster Derry Brewer and William de la Pole; Duke of Suffolk; to run his kingdom. Yet there are those; such as the Plantagenet Richard; Duke of York; who believe England must be led by a strong king if she is to survive. With England's territories in France under threat; and rumours of revolt at home; fears grow that Henry and his advisers will see the country slide into ruin. With a secret deal struck for Henry to marry a young French noblewoman; Margaret of Anjou; those fears become all too real. As storm clouds gather over England; King Henry and his supporters find themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who; or what can save the kingdom before it is too late? 'This is energetic; competent stuff; Iggulden knows his material and his audience' Independent 'A thrilling journey; rippingly told . . . Iggulden's most satisfying to date' Telegraph 'Iggulden is in a class of his own when it comes to epic; historical fiction' Daily Mirror 'Iggulden...tells an absolutely cracking story' The Times Conn Iggulden is the author of the best-selling Emperor and Conqueror historical fiction series and also the co-author (with his brother Hal); of 2006's British Book of The Year; The Dangerous Book for Boys.
