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. Conn 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 Reviews
"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 "Steeped in the tactics and bloodshed of warfare; the book reads as if the narrator has waded with a video camera into the heart of the action at St. Albans and Blore Heath . . . His intention is getting into the hearts and minds of the Wars of the Roses' protagonists. And with the reader's allegiance being drawn from one to another, and the poignant dramas that unfold behind the grim inevitability of war, a grand yarn it is too." --The Times of London
