Description

The thrilling first instalment in the Wars of the Roses series - set at the beginnings of this turbulent period of English history which saw the throne change hands six times in 30 years.

The Swan sees Henry VI crowned King of England and married to the young French noblewoman, Margaret of Anjou - and so begins the extraordinary story of how England became a divided nation, where brother took up arms against brother. This was the war which defined the England we know today.

The Wars of the Roses series will be a landmark piece of historical fiction writing, with all the intrigue, drama, and action one expects from one of the biggest names in the genre. This is Conn Iggulden at his finest.

A well executed set up.

Great writing, exceptional narration (one of the best, if not * the*best, I have come across) and beautifully developed characters.

Wonderful read and would read again.

Any additional comments?

I have not read one of his books before but this book intrigued me from beginning to end. I look forward to reading the next book of the series. This book has enough historical information mixed with fiction that it gives an almost true account of that time. If this period interests you, then you will enjoy this book.

this is a very good story

I really enjoyed this book. It was very well read, the narrator uses various voice and intonations to bring through book to life. I thought it was very well done.

Superb - really enjoyable

Having loved some but not all of the author's series I gave Stormbird a go without reading any reviews or any synopsis of the book.

I was definitely not disappointed with the story or the narrator, I can't wait for the next in the series!

another great series from Iggulden

I have read his other series and therefore had to listen also to this one. It is not as good as the Genghis books, but for me this is a very high standard. I had difficulty deciding if I should give 4 or 5 stars, I would say four and a half. Its a complicated subject with many Edwards and Richards and battles back and forth. the series gets better book by book. I hope Conn makes another series.

Historic fiction as it is ment to be

Würden Sie Wars of the Roses: Stormbird noch mal anhören? Warum?

A story where you cannot see the line between history and fiction - excellent. The reader does an excellent job and I can't wait to complete the trilogy.

Welches andere Buch würden Sie mit Wars of the Roses: Stormbird vergleichen? Warum?

Conn Iggulden - The Ghenghis Kahn series could be compared to this book.
