Following the wildly successful The Dangerous Book for Boys and the Emperor and Conqueror series, Conn Iggulden brings us a deftly constructed new historic epic, Stormbird. The first in a gripping series retelling the Wars of the Roses, Iggulden had deftly explored through various protagonists, all with different viewpoints, the accession of Henry VI to the English throne in 1437 and his marriage to Margaret of Anjou. Henry’s poor health and frailty render him a weakling king dependent on his closest advisors, particularly spymaster Derry Brewer and William de la Pole, and as territories in France come under threat and rumours of a revolt swell there are those that fear England’s swift slide into ruin. Come to hear a cracking historical story from a man who really knows his material and his audience.
