The perfect gift for all history enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKER
Trinity the second in Conn Iggulden's Wars of the Roses series blazes with intrigue and visceral bloody action. The narrative is laced with historical facts which add intellectual spice to a blockbuster novel.
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Stormbird I was prepared for a good read, but Trinity is superior by far, the characters are now thoroughly fleshed out and the geopolitical situation much clearer. Combine all this with a very compelling fast paced prose, Iggulden's innate sense for the period, dry humour and you have the ultimate page turner, so much so I finished the book in three days, I just could not put it down.
I cannot praise this work too highly, Conn Iggulden, to my mind, has truly become a master story teller and ranks up there with the first rank historical novelists, such as Cornwell, and Pressfield. I am looking forward in anticipation to the next sequel.

Have only started reading Conn Iggulden in the last two years, and for me he ranks second only to Wilbur Smith in great historical fiction. I have read all the books in the series on Caesar, Genghis Kahn and the Wars of the Roses. Absolutely great and interesting reading. Any future books will certainly be in my collection.

I really like the War of the Roses series by Conn Iggulden. I think this book is even better than the first and I am eagerly waiting for the third. The only negative thing I can say about it is I am more of a pro York person and I think this book seems to be leaning more toward the Lancasters as the :good guys". If you enjoy reading about the War of the Roses, then you should give this book, and series, a try. I think you will enjoy it.
As with all Iggulden sagas this aims to carry internal momentum for the individual book while trying to maintain the core overriding themes of the series, in this case the Wars of the Roses. Successful? In short the core story is a rollicking view of the crazy carrys on of English royalty, and the multi level battles for the throne. But deep seated jealousies and hatreds get in the way. What has changed. A mad king, his fiery French wife and the gaggle of throne huggers to add spice, murder, plots and mayhem. There are few periods of reflection. This is a racy adventure and one that is a useful mind flush to add comic like entertainment on a wet afternoon. I will enjoy the next book in the series.
