Synopsis: Historical fiction master Conn Iggulden retells the gripping story of the English Civil War in his new Wars of the Roses series. King Henry V - the great Lion of England - is long dead. In 1437, after years of regency, the pious and gentle Henry VI, the Lamb, comes of age and accedes to the English throne. His poor health and frailty of mind render him a weakling king - Henry depends on his closest men, Spymaster Derry Brewer and William de la Pole, Duke of Suffolk, to run his kingdom. Yet there are those, such as the Plantagenet Richard, Duke of York, who believe England must be led by a strong king if she is to survive. With England's territories in France under threat, and rumours of revolt at home, fears grow that Henry and his advisers will see the country slide into ruin. With a secret deal struck for Henry to marry a young French noblewoman, Margaret of Anjou, those fears become all too real. As storm clouds gather over England, King Henry and his supporters find themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who, or what, can save the kingdom before it is too late? The Wars of the Roses series will be a benchmark for historical fiction, showcasing Conn Iggulden at his finest. Praise for Stormbird: "Pacey and juicy, and packed with action". (Sunday Times). "Energetic, competent stuff; Iggulden knows his material and his audience". (Independent). "A novel that seamlessly combines narrative, historical credence and great knowledge of the period". (Daily Express). "Iggulden is in a class of his own when it comes to epic, historical fiction". (Daily Mirror). "Superbly plotted and paced". (The Times). "Conn breathes new life into the darkest and most dramatic of times, with a flair for both the huge scale and human interest of it all". (Star). "Exceptionally well-written and gripping". (Stylist). Conn Iggulden is the author of the best-selling Emperor and Conqueror historical fiction series and also the co-author (with his brother Hal), of 2006's British Book of The Year, The Dangerous Book for Boys. Born in London, Conn Iggulden read English at London University and worked as a teacher for seven years before becoming a full time writer. He is married and lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and children.
