Conn Iggulden, in this last book of his War of the Roses series, does not disappoint. The Yorkist king Edward IV is driven out of England, his wife and children forced to seek sanctuary from the House of Lancaster. His humiliation at this turn of events drives Edward back to greatness. He lands at Ravenspur, with a half-drowned army and his brother Richard at his side. Though almost all are against them and every city gate is shut, they have come home. The brothers York do not go quietly into banishment Instead, they choose to attack and Edward regains his crown. Yet neither Edward nor Richard realize that the true enemy of York has yet to reveal himself. Far away, across the Channel, in France, Henry Tudor has become a man. He is the Red Dragon—"the man of destiny: who seeks to end the Wars of the Roses. His claim, though tenuous, will carry him to Bosworth Field and the rise of the Tudors. Although I am very familiar with the characters and events described, Mr. Iggulden gives depth and insight into all the principles and events of this turbulent time, such that you gain empathy and insight into their characters and begin to like them I highly recommend this series to all, novices and experts alike.
