Publisher Description

The brilliant retelling of the Wars of the Roses continues with Trinity, the second gripping novel in the new series from historical fiction master, Conn Iggulden.

1454: King Henry VI has remained all but exiled in Windsor Castle, struck down by his illness for over a year, his eyes vacant, his mind a blank.

His fiercely loyal wife and Queen, Margaret of Anjou, safeguards her husband's interests, hoping that her son Edward will one day know the love of his father.

Richard Duke of York, Protector of the Realm, extends his influence throughout the kingdom with each month that Henry slumbers. The Earls of Salisbury and Warwick make up a formidable trinity with Richard, and together they seek to break the support of those who would raise their colours in the name of Henry and his Queen.

But when the King unexpectedly recovers his senses and returns to London to reclaim his throne, the balance of power is once again thrown into turmoil.

The clash of the Houses of Lancaster and York will surely mean a war to tear England apart . . .

Following on from Stormbird, Trinity is the second epic instalment in master storyteller Conn Iggulden's new Wars of the Roses series. Fans of Game of Thrones and The Tudors will be gripped from the word go.

War of the Roses

Another excellent series from Conn love his stuff

Trinity

This is the first time I have reviewed a book. I feel compelled to go into print because of the excellence of Conn's writing generally, (I also read the Ghengis series), and the magic he brings to the history through his terrific storytelling. The characters leap to life under his penmanship, and the historical drama is revealed impeccably. I will not go into the plot detail, as that will deny potential readers from their own delight of discovery. Whilst I had a broad understanding of the Wars of the Roses, this reading experience has really given me a much greater idea of the individual players and the politics of the time. Mostly a true telling of the facts, (Conn outlines minor changes to timing for the sake of drama, and to avoid repetition), the details of the court intrigue and of the battles fought are truly gripping. A great book; I await the third in the trilogy with bated breath! Thanks Conn.
