Wars of the Roses Trinity

Garet of Anjou safeguards her husband's interests hoping that her son Edward will one day know the love of his fatherRichard 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. Trinity is the second installment in Iggulden s uniue Wars of the Roses trilogy which began with Stormbird For inexplicable reasons it is being released as Margaret of Anjou in the US Margaret is an important character as she was in the first book but she is not featured any than several othersThis book started out slowly for me Relating the feud between the Percys and the Nevilles and its impact on the beginning of the Wars of the Roses should have been interesting as the loss of France had been in Stormbird but this storyline simply fell flat for me If the first book hadn t been amazing I might have given up on this one I m glad I didn tOnce Iggulden got to the First Battle of St Albans this started to read like the book I had been expecting The battle scenes are unparalleled with various points of view giving a comprehensive view of the battle without becoming confusing or bogged down in detailThe author manages a large cast of characters and complicated maneuvering with great skillOne disappointment that was never resolved was the characterization of Richard of York In Stormbird he seemed to be a uiet villain lying in wait Seeing the failures in Henry s policies Richard was ready to take up the reins Then in Trinity he becomes honorable and Salisbury works as the driving force behind the rebellion York doesn t want to fight against his king but truly wants to see him under better advisement More than once he declines opportunities to grasp at the throne or rid the country of its inept king I don t mind either of these characterizations but the fact that it wasn t consistent bothered me Though I believe Iggulden is attempting to write a version of history that is complimentary to Margaret of Anjou there just doesn t seem to be a way to portray her as anything other than a cold blooded cruel woman who makes decisions to send thousands to their deaths rather than let someone who is not mentally ill rule England In Stormbird I could feel sorry for the young bride who did not understand the sacrifices being made for the sake of her marriage By the time period covered in Trintiy she knows exactly what she is doing and does it anywayThe last 200 pages of this were 5 star just like the first book Unfortunately the first 300 were closer to 3 I expect that the final book of the trilogy which will take up the story of Edward of York continuing his father s fight will be uite the page turner

About the Author: Conn Iggulden

CF IgguldenI was born in the normal way in 1971 and vaguely remember half pennies and sixpences I have written for as long as I can remember poetry short stories and novels It’s what I always wanted to do and read English at London University with writing in mind I taught English for seven years and was Head of English at St Gregory’s RC High School in London by the end of that period I have enormous respect for those who still labour at the chalk face In truth I can’t find it in me to miss the grind of paperwork and initiatives I do miss the camaraderie of the smokers’ room as well as the lessons where their faces lit up as they understood what I was wittering on aboutMy mother is Irish and from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories – with dates My great grandfather was a Seannachie so I suppose story telling is in the genes somewhere My father flew in Bomber Command in WWII then taught maths and science Perhaps crucially he also loved poetry and cracking good tales Though it seems a dated idea now I began teaching when boys were told only girls were good at English despite the great names that must spring to mind after that statement My father loved working with wood and euations but he also recited ‘Vitai Lampada’ with a gleam in his eye and that matters franklyI’ve always loved historical fiction as a genre and cut my teeth on Hornblower and Tai Pan Flashman Sharpe and Jack Aubrey I still remember the sheer joy of reading my first Patrick O’Brian book and discovering there were nineteen in the series I love just about anything by David Gemmell or Peter F Hamilton or Wilbur Smith I suppose the one thing that links all those is the love of a good taleThat’s about it for the moment If you’d like to get in touch with me leave a comment in the forum or you can tweet me ConnIggulden I’ll leave it there for the moment If you’ve read my books you know an awful lot about the way I think already There’s no point overdoing itConn Iggulden

    This was only 3 stars for meI was expecting it to be a little higher because it was Conn Iggulden I thoroughly loved reading the first two books in his Conuerer series as well as the first one in his Emperor series This one just didn't grab me as much as the others I think it felt lopsided To me that means that it was super heavy on the historical facts and light on the fiction side I liked Margaret of Anjou though I appreciated her stren
