Description

Add that rich vein of superb characterisation to a mastery of weaving various threads of characters into an over-arcing tapestry of a story, teasing and manipulating the reader so expertly that you end up actually rather caring about what happens to the characters. With a background in English too, he has a handling of the craft quite unlike any other, knowing and understanding exactly what it is that his readers are looking for. His Lancastrian queen rides south with an army of northerners, accompanied by warriors from the Scottish Highlands. In September 2009, he published the children's book Tollins: Explosive Tales for Children, through HarperCollins.

In 2012, Iggulden added a further Quick Reads book to the list, Quantum of Tweed – The Man with a Nissan Micra – a comedy about an unwitting hitman. Hacía unos meses que no leía narrativa histórica pura y dura, y este libro ha sido todo un descubrimiento. In 1437, the Lancaster king Henry VI ascends the throne of England after years of semi-peaceful regency. Unfortunately, this tipped me off about Lord Suffolk and John Cade ( led a revolt of Kentish men who even stormed the Tower of London).Black hardback(silver lettering to the spine, two small nicks and dent on the edges of the cover and spine) with protected Dj(two small nicks and crease on the edges of the Dj cover),both in fine condition. He has an idiot spymaster whose plans are so stupid you would not believe leading to revolution in France and at home. Winter 1461: Richard, duke of York, is dead—his ambitions in ruins, his head spiked on the walls of the city. The brilliant retelling of the Wars of the Roses continues with Margaret of Anjou, the second gripping novel in the new series from historical fiction master Conn Iggulden.

in the very next chapter the preconceptions he has let you build, he tears down, and you mentally shift allegiance over and over again, until your head is spinning, and you realise the sheer complexity and scale of the conflict. I particularly enjoyed the portrayal of Henry VI's young bride, Margaret of Anjou, as in the other books I have read set in this period she is an older and battle-hardened woman.He leaves out real facts for invented 'dramatic turns of events' obscuring the actual reasons for why things played out as they did (= warping historical understanding for those who read to learn). The clash of the Houses of Lancaster and York may be the beginning of a war that could tear England apart . What attracted me to this book is my love for The Game of Thrones television series and having been compared to same topic and theme as Game of Thrones and The White Queen I had to find out more. Now, there's nothing wrong with attention to detail but I, personally, prefer my historical fiction to have more focus on the inner thoughts and motivation of characters with a particular emphasis on the female point of view plus a tad less poetic licence when it comes to the facts.
