Conn Iggulden is one of the most successful authors of historical fiction writing today. Following Stormbird, Margaret of Anjou is the second book in his superb new series set during the Wars of the Roses, a remarkable period of British history. His previous two series, on Julius Caesar and on the Mongol Khans of Central Asia, describe the founding of the greatest empires of their day and were number-one bestsellers. Iggulden lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and children.
"Highly readable as a stand-alone novel, but those who loved Stormbird will be anticipating Iggulden's take on the mesmerizing Richard III."--Kirkus
"The politicking and conniving are worthy of a Washington potboiler. The battle scenes turn on the flick of a decision, adding to the excitement of this twisting chapter in English history. Royal watchers, history buffs, and those who love their war tales will be marching alongside the author as he illuminates the ups and downs of royal control in that uncertain era."--Library Journal "Compulsively readable and historically reliable...With a cast of characters...and a convoluted plot ripped straight from the pages of history, this retelling of a legendary dynastic struggle will appeal to the legions of historical fiction fans that have contributed to the popularity and fictional longevity of the Yorks and the Lancasters."--Booklist
