Iggulden retells the gripping story of the
English civil war in his newWars
of the Rosesseries.
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

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

themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who, or

showcasing Conn Iggulden at his finest.
