Conn Iggulden is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and one of the most popular historical novelists working today. His The Dangerous Book for Boys was an iconic success, and he has written three bestselling historical series, including his "Wars of the Roses" saga. Conn lives in England.
Having already taken on Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, and the War of
the Roses, Iggulden successfully dramatizes the life of Dunstan,
Abbot of Glastonbury and confidant of King Aethelstan, the grandson
of Alfred the Great. Immerses the reader in tenth-century
Superbly plotted and paced. An absolutely cracking story. The pace is nail-biting and the set dressing magnificent. Iggulden has created an intriguingly complex saint--flawed, spiteful, and unreliable as the teller of his own tale. Through his eyes we watch the story of the making of England.
A well-researched tale of heroism and hardship, honor and betrayal in which anyone's life can disappear with a filth-tipped arrow or the slash of a kopis. Exciting fare, a yarn well-spun.
A rousing retelling of a singular event, as seen through the eyes of three leaders on a momentous trek, this latest historical novel by Iggulden will be of interest to both young and old readers of military and ancient history.
A rousing, immersive, historically vast tale of kings, soldiers, and clashing kingdoms. This novel meets all the notes of a moving, epic tale. Highly recommended.
