Book Description

The brilliant retelling of the Wars of the Roses continues with Trinity, the second gripping novel in the new series from historical fiction master, Conn Iggulden.



1454: King Henry VI has remained all but exiled in Windsor Castle, struck down by his illness for over a year, his eyes vacant, his mind a blank.



His fiercely loyal wife and Queen, Margaret of Anjou, safeguards her husband's interests, hoping that her son Edward will one day know the love of his father.



Richard Duke of York, Protector of the Realm, extends his influence throughout the kingdom with each month that Henry slumbers. The Earls of Salisbury and Warwick make up a formidable trinity with Richard, and together they seek to break the support of those who would raise their colours in the name of Henry and his Queen.



But when the King unexpectedly recovers his senses and returns to London to reclaim his throne, the balance of power is once again thrown into turmoil.



The clash of the Houses of Lancaster and York will surely mean a war to tear England apart . . .



Following on from Stormbird, Trinity is the second epic instalment in master storyteller Conn Iggulden's new Wars of the Roses series. Fans of Game of Thrones and The Tudors will be gripped from the word go.



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


'A page-turning thriller' Mail on Sunday


'Superbly plotted and paced' The Times



Conn Iggulden is one of the most successful authors of historical fiction writing today. Following on from Stormbird, the Sunday Times best-seller, Trinity is the second book in his superb new series set during the Wars of the Roses, a remarkable period of British history. His previous two series, on Julius Caesar and on the Mongol Khans of Central Asia, describe the founding of the greatest empires of their day and were number one bestsellers. Conn Iggulden lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and children.

    Review

    I often find that if you ask an Iggulden fan what their favorite book is, there is a clear divide between those who love the Emperor series and those who love the Conqueror series. You can be a fan of all the books, but that draw to preference usually goes to one series. As a fan of his books since the very first, back in 2002, i have put some thought into this before and think its to do with the restriction of history.

    Conn is a brilliantly natural story teller, of the type that if born before the modern age would have made his way in life travelling from town to town, city to city telling tales, or even as a master story teller in a royal palace. Anyone who has met him will have experienced the presence he brings to a room, one i find he brings to the fore in the conqueror series more than the emperor one. Why? Because he can let free reign to his imagination, and his experiences from travelling the Mongolian steppes. The emperor series, and now the War of the Roses constrains that imagination with the wealth of history that exists, the sheer volume of detail and information that the author has to be bound to or be crucified by the reading history buffs.

    Despite that, I think Conn tackles the story in a brilliant fashion, while i enjoyed book one immensely, Trinity feels more mature, rounded. For a while i almost had to check that it was really was written by Conn Iggulden, the style felt different, older, more mature. The cast of players from history are expanded on, filling our idea of who they are and why, who the good guy is and who the bad guy is in the war of the roses, and then WHAM!

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Wars of the Roses Narrative 18 Mar. 2015
    Format:Hardcover
    This is good but perhaps I would call it a historical narrative rather than novel.

    Beautifully written as one would expect by this author the story continues the bloody turbulent civil war which ripped England apart in the struggle for power and the throne.

    As the book revolves around historic figures and factual events it lacks the natural storyline of a novel proper. That does not detract from the quality but if you want a novel set in the Wars of the Roses there are others.

    I have enjoyed this series so far and believe it is a great entry point for someone who is intrigued by this period and perhaps does not want a scholastic tome.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from Conn Iggulden 14 Nov. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Iggulden is an excellent writer of historical docu-dramas. He certainly brings history to life. The early pages with complex charts of the various family relationships are a bit daunting and made me worry that there would be a test later! However, the story is well told though perhaps a little one sided. Hence the 4 stars not 5. You get to learn a lot about the triumphs of the Yorkists but their defeats are brushed aside somewhat. At the same time there are few explanations as to why the King's side are so badly informed. Derry Brewer, the master spy catcher in the previous novel is still around but does not seem to do very much. Nevertheless, a very enjoyable book, well written for pace, well presented and certainly left me as a fan of this excellent writer.

    The perfect gift for all history enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

    Trinity the second in Conn Iggulden's Wars of the Roses series blazes with intrigue and visceral bloody action. The narrative is laced with historical facts which add intellectual spice to a blockbuster novel.

    Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Stormbird I was prepared for a good read, but Trinity is superior by far, the characters are now thoroughly fleshed out and the geopolitical situation much clearer. Combine all this with a very compelling fast paced prose, Iggulden's innate sense for the period, dry humour and you have the ultimate page turner, so much so I finished the book in three days, I just could not put it down.

    I cannot praise this work too highly, Conn Iggulden, to my mind, has truly become a master story teller and ranks up there with the first rank historical novelists, such as Cornwell, and Pressfield. I am looking forward in anticipation to the next sequel.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 15 April 2015
    By elsie
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Although the Genghis Khan books are still my favourite of Iggulden's, this series has all that I enjoy about his writing. Very well paced, good characterisation and a very engaging style that carries you along effortlessly. Parts of Trinity were, I felt, slightly padded and drawn out however with some scenes and some dialogue between characters getting a little repetitious. Having said that - I imagine it is a difficult time period to write about with the complex web of loyalties and family connections so it's probably hard to avoid repetition of names, titles and connections!
    Overall a very good read and I look forward to continuing the story.
