Publisher's Summary

Set during England's bloody and brutal War of the Roses, this is the second novel in an epic historical fiction series. If you liked Conn Iggulden's Stormbird, you will love Toby Clements' Kingmaker novels.
October 1463. England is a divided nation. In the north the Lancastrian king struggles to hold power while in the south the princes of the house of York prepare for war. Across this land, pursued by the church and the law, a young man, Thomas, and a young woman, Catherine, make their way, bearing proof of a secret both sides will kill to learn.
Bent on revenge for a past outrage, Thomas and Catherine journey to the mighty castle of Bamburgh to join a weakening king as he marshals his army to take up arms in one of the most savage civil wars in history: the War of the Roses.

Good, if a little harrowing

I started this straight after the first book. I found it quite draining, to be honest, as there is little let-up in the sequence of harrowing events that befall the main characters. It could have used some light relief at some point, as sometimes I felt like I was listening to Hardy's Jude the Obscure, but with even more death and misery!
Still, the plot was engaging, if a little tenuous at times. A little more description and character development would have improved it considerably as otherwise it ended up being a bit of a trashy thriller, which it didn't have to be. But overall I enjoyed this book and will crack on with the third installment.
