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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding historical fiction 1 Feb. 2015
    Outstanding fiction based on firm fact. I have just devoured this and it is a feast of suspense and plotting in keeping with the times. Although Iggulden seems to have taken largely the Lancastrian side, the novel is actually quite even handed. The fear uncertainty and doubt in the run up to the first Battle of St Albans is exceptionally well-played with the motives of both sides, though well-intentioned easily presented as a challenge to the opposite force in the mist of impending battle. This is outstanding fiction, strongly based on historical fact, and I look forward to the next instalment(s). Bravo

    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.

    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!

    Conn Iggulden’s ‘Stormbird’ now continues on with ‘Trinity.’ A splendid second instalment of his factional account of the Wars of the Roses. The story now assumes the form and shape that history remembers, albeit reinforced creatively by the author’s skilled fictional additions. Iggulden superbly illuminates many dark corners of England’s internecine struggles as we observe at close quarters the bitter rivalries between noble houses now preparing to wage war to the death. ‘The gloves are off,’ so to speak, even as the metal gauntlets are donned for battle. Again, violence, treachery and courage all converge to produce yet another page-turner. Additionally I personally liked the empathy that Iggulden engenders for Richard, Duke of York, who is portrayed as being, in effect, caught between a rock and a hard place. He’ll be damned if he tries to take the Crown of England and be damned if he doesn’t. There is fear clearly extant between the houses of York and Lancaster; and neither faction dares to leave well alone. The author does well to highlight this. I found an impending feel of peculiar prophetic parallel, still hidden from ‘Trinity’s’ historical view of course in so far as the Duke’s youngest son Richard one day will be obliged to choose between a similar future dilemma occasioned by the premature death of his brother, Edward IV. Good stuff. The magnificent warrior prince Edward of March is now sketched firmly into the story, although I would have preferred to read a more robustly detailed and entertainingly factional account of the famed ‘parhelion’ day that presaged Edward’s stunning victory at Mortimer’s Cross - a significant battle in the Roses’ struggle. Even so, another beautifully written book that augurs well for the next instalment in the series. I would purchase all he writes on this era – well done Conn.
