"An enthralling adventure story, honest and powerful. The Wars of the Roses are imagined here with energy, with ferocity, with hunger to engage the [listener]." (Hilary Mantel)

Excellent Read

Just finished this book and can barely find the words to describe how much I enjoyed it. Without doubt it is one of the best books I've listened to for ages. For the passed few days I've been in that peculiar state where I was longing to find out what happened in the end without wanting the book to finish.

But what joy, it's part of a trilogy. So I downloaded Book 2 without waiting. The characters in this novel are so believable, Kit and Thomas, Sir John and Richard, even Walter, though the Welsh voices need some practice, you could almost think that Toby Clements wrote this book thinking that Jack Hawkins was going to read it.

If you love historical novels or even if you just love a romping good story with brilliantly drawn characters then download this book now and put the rest of your life on hold for a bit.

A fantastic read

This book was interesting with a fascinating plot, fast paced and well researched - I could not put it down.

I found the battles scenes a little too long and gory but I got used to them in the end. This was all brought to life so brilliantly by the best of narrators. It will be a hard act to follows. Thank you.
