Reviewed by me as a member of Rosie Amber's Review Team

I LOVED this book. It's a terrific page-turner, a real adventure, from the time when the country was such a dangerous place, when men were men and women waited in castles for them to come home (not so keen on that bit, as I am sure many of the women weren't!). It made me long (as I often do) to go back to those times; this book brings the England of over five centuries ago to life so well. Book One, about Owen, Jasper's father, was jolly good, but this is what I love to see ~ a sequel that takes the story to another level.

There is so much written and on television about the Yorkist side of the Wars of the Roses, I find, but less about the Lancasters, so this filled in many gaps in my knowledge. It's expertly planned; I was particularly interested to see how Tony Riches would write about events during which Jasper was far away and out of touch, like Warwick's change of allegiance, but he did this most convincingly, using the fictional Gabriel, an Irish mercenary who becomes a close friend of the hero, as a reporter of events. Similarly, the disintegration of the Yorks following the death of Edward IV is cleverly accounted for via the messengers who visit Jasper during his exile in Brittany. I also enjoyed the first appearance of the Duke of Buckingham, whose son causes trouble for Henry VIII, and of other characters who appeared as Plantagenet made way for Tudor.

In my opinion this is a book for those who already know something of the history, as there are so many names and changing allegiances that, even being quite well versed in this period as I am, I had to stop and think a few times about who was who. This isn't Riches' fault; he has dealt with a long and complicated story admirably.

With his father, Owen Tudor, cruelly executed at the hands of York and his wealth and title stolen from him, Jasper Tudor must use all his intelligence and knightly skills to stay alive. But he is also a man of unassailable principles and he will do everything in his power to see his half-brother, King Henry VI, reclaim his rightful thrown from the York pretender.

Set in the backdrop of The War of the Roses, Jasper - Book Two of The Tudor Trilogy, tells the story of Jasper Tudor, the man who despite the odds stacked against him, never gave up and fought alongside his nephew on that fateful day at Bosworth against King Richard III army and, despite the odds, won. Ending the Plantagenet’s long reign in England forever and bringing peace, at last, to a country that had been bitterly divided by civil war.

The historical details and the account of Jasper Tudor's life, in this book, was staggering. Riches brings the 15th Century back to life, and his portray of Jasper was so beautifully executed that it felt as if Jasper Tudor had written this book and was telling his story himself. Riches brought him back to life.

The story itself is fast-paced and the years of war and exile flew by as quickly as I turned the pages. The story was so compelling that I had a hard time putting this book down. And when I had finished, I had to sit quietly for a moment, digesting all that I had seen between the pages of this book. This story of Jasper will stay with me for a long time.

Tony Riches is, without a doubt, one of my favourite historical fiction authors. He is not only a skilled story-teller, but he makes you care, not only for the protagonists but for everyone else as well. His portrayal of young Henry, first as a child, and then as a young man was very believable.

Format: Paperback
I have read several other novels by Tony Riches, including the first in this series, Owen, so I knew what to expect in terms of writing style. Riches creates his stories the way I like to see historical fiction written, by researching his topic thoroughly and then creatively filling in the gaps. I particularly enjoyed the Author's Note, where Riches' enthusiasm for following the footsteps of Jasper Tudor is clear in his description of his travels and research.

If the Tudor era seems overdone, you may appreciate that this author is looking at some historical figures who were vital to the founding of the Tudor dynasty yet have not had much written on them. Rather than featuring Henry VIII and his gaggle of wives, Riches' trilogy features the men who gave the dynasty it's name. Owen, in the first book, makes a vital connection between the Tudors and England's royal family when he married the widowed queen, Catherine of Valois, who gave birth to sons who were the king's half-brothers. In this second book, the story of one of those sons, Jasper, takes over.

Jasper's brother, Edmund, may have been the one with a story to tell here if he had not tragically died while his exceptionally young wife was pregnant. Margaret Beaufort probably needs no further introduction, and she is portrayed as the strong and devout woman that she undoubtedly was in this novel. She leans upon her brother-in-law, Jasper, when she is left a 13 year old widow and mother in a country being torn apart by civil war.

What stands out most about this novel is Jasper's failures. I think we tend to think of him as Henry Tudor's greatest supporter (which he was), and he is given much credit for Henry's rise.
