Get ready for a fantastic tale set in the 15th century. I'm a sucker for the British kings and queens, but have always focused on the Tudor era - this story tells us what came before and how the so called Wars of the Roses came to be. So not only does this book open up new territory for me, but it's also vastly different as it's written by a male writer (I usually get my historical fix from Phillipa Gregory) and although we do get part of the story from the perspective of Margaret, the main story is more male. There's a lot of action. Fighting. Stubbornness. Pride. Ego. Lusting for the throne. [obviously women are also very capable of all these things, but the book is definitely just different from a more female storyline driven story]. We get the stories of both the high and low and learn why riots all over England led to London being invaded by it's own people and even the Tower breached.
As an extra bonus there's an afterword by Iggulden explaining which historical events and people he took artistic liberties with and so on (sometimes you've got to speed things up a bit to keep the story going).
Bogen og dens toer her er naturligvis også udkommet på dansk med titlen Stormvinge og Treenighed, og det kan altså varmt anbefales, hvis man er til historiske romaner.
