Conn Iggulden is one of the most successful authors of historical fiction writing today. Among many other bestselling novels, he is the author of The Gates of Athens, Ravenspur, The Abbot's Tale, and The Falcon of Sparta, all available from Pegasus Books. Conn lives in London.
Capturing the violence and romance of medieval life, Iggulden makes
real those grand characters who live in the collective memory.
Iggulden wraps up his finely wrought War of the Roses series in splendid style. Murder, betrayal, and bloody battlefields distinguish a vigorous narrative that, though ripped from the pages of history, still manages to contain a strong measure of heart-pounding suspense.
The dialogue sounds modern, but it's laced with historical syntax and grammar to lend credibility. Moreover, despite the complicated history and plethora of Edwards, Henrys, and Richards, Iggulden's narrative remains clear as the aristocratic houses fight not only for political power, but also titles and crown estates, land and wealth. A powerful you-are-there narrative, authentic and engaging.
