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. As was his portrayal of Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick (The King Maker) and Margaret Beaufort.
Sometimes in these sort of accounts you can get a little lost in the detail, but not so in this case. An awful lot happens in this book, but Riches is your personal tour guide and makes the journey very comfortable and enjoyable.
If you are looking for quality fiction about the Tudor dynasty and the War of The Roses, then this is the book for you. It is certainly a book I will come back to again.
