Description

No recomiendo el libro para lectores que se aburran con conflictos bélicos y políticos, porque gran parte de la trama está centrada únicamente en eso.

El rey es débil, las posesiones en Francia están en peligro, pactos, concesiones, huida de los colonos ingleses en territorio francés, desórdenes civiles, intrigas, una reina francesa para pactar la paz con Francia, que será una reina fuerte y el verdadero soporte que permite mantenerse al rey y a sus partidarios durante muchos años. Creating a number of series, he’s really managed to establish himself as an author of epic sagas, providing a level of scope and scale that really is something to be admired. While this is a historical fiction series Conn does an amazing job sticking to the facts while filling in holes. UK Hardback First Edition FirstPrinting 2014 with Waterstone's War of The Roses exclusive short story.The Yorkist cause may have one the “first” battle of the Wars of the Roses, but it ignited a flame inside of Margaret of Anjou to not only protect her son and her husband but to also completely destroy Richard Duke of York. When this is done well, as in Stormbird, it can really help to see the known facts in the context of the attitudes and conditions of the times. Just substitute the names and make it some fantasy kingdom and not England/France and fantasy readers would gobble it up. During his journey to France, he is waylaid by a pirate ship, commissioned by Richard, who kill William. Colorful, vibrant and atmospheric I was greatly impressed by how Iggulden gets to the core of the greatest civil war and doesn’t diminish the rawness and harshness of the times.

Episodios bélicos, que hay muchos, bien narrados, algunos en los siguientes libros de forma brillante, desde mi punto de vista. His fiercely loyal wife and Queen, Margaret of Anjou, safeguards her husband’s interests, hoping that her son Edward will one day know the love of his father.

Transporting them back to the past, he brings history to life, giving his readers a sense of what it was really like to live back then. Iggulden just uses that knowledge to underpin his story but not get in the way of it as it tears through at a death or glory rate! Their marriage seems happy, however, there are those who live outside the royal court who are suffering. They include Richard of York, descended on both sides from Edward III and father of the later Yorkist Kings, the reigning King - Henry VI and his wife Margret of Anjou, and the Neville family – including the man who would become known as the Kingmaker. I've read quite a few books about this period but this the first to explore what it must have been like for the English settlers who suddenly found their lands in France had been given back to the French.
