Summary

England, 1461: The young King Edward of York has taken the country by force from King Henry VI of Lancaster. Sir Jasper Tudor, Earl of Pembroke, flees the massacre of his Welsh army at the Battle of Mortimer's Cross and plans a rebellion to return his half-brother King Henry to the throne.
When King Henry is imprisoned by Edward in the Tower of London and murdered, Jasper escapes to Brittany with his young nephew, Henry Tudor. Then after the sudden death of King Edward and the mysterious disappearance of his sons, a new king, Edward's brother Richard III takes the English throne. With nothing but his wits and charm, Jasper sees his chance to make young Henry Tudor king with a daring and reckless invasion of England.
Set in the often brutal world of 15th century England, Wales, Scotland, France, Burgundy and Brittany, during the Wars of the Roses, this fast-paced story is one of courage and adventure, love and belief in the destiny of the Tudors.

Excellent

I really enjoyed this follow on from ‘Owen’ and can’t wait to start on ‘Henry’. The performance is good but the story is excellent. A good piece of historical fiction with very good accuracy of real events included.

Was it Destiny?

This book explores the times of the War of the Roses from the Tudor perspective. Well written and good to meet the Lancastrian side of the family. The book effortlessly links back to Owen Tudor and Katherine de Valois story and the adversities all suffered in the strife. The final confrontation at Bosworth Field casually mentions Stafford who, once he saw the way things were going, committed his soldiers not to Richard but to Henry thus bringing an end to the long lasting war. This book is a good way to understand the strategy and planning of the Tudors.

No end of days

I enjoyed this book immensely but was very disappointed when the book ended prior to Jasper's death I would have liked to have heard what happened to Jasper after king Henry took the throne

Great story-narration fell short

I really do enjoy Tony Riches' writing. There's just not much out there that focuses on the Tudors before Henry VIII, and it's quite an adventure to be told. The narrator is not the same man who narrates the first book in the series, "Owen". I found this narration to be lacking. It's a bit too genteel and restrained to tell the stories of battles and close calls and escapes from certain death. Just my humble opinion.
