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!

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.

As another reviewer has said, this feels like a more mature and considered book than the first in the series, Stormbird. I like Trinity enormously. The scale and scope of the Wars of the Roses, is a huge challenge to a fiction writer and Conn Iggulden has nailed it as far as I am concerned. To humanise, fictionalise and indeed empathise with these long dead people given their apparently insane and unquenchable thirst for power is no mean feat.

At the heart of the matter is the weak, mentally unstable King Henry VI, who is sadly not the man his powerful father Henry V was in any respect. He has long periods of catatonia and in the power vacuum created during these months, vicious feuding and struggles for control of the country and the infant Prince of Wales take place. When Henry emerges from one his long fits, he is amazed to find that he has an heir, is determined to wrest royal power back from the Lord Protector and equally determined to reinstate loyal men who have been imprisoned against his wishes. His unpopular French wife, Margaret of Anjou, has to try to stay one step ahead, to protect both her husband and her baby son, in a society which sees women, even royal women, as not suited to power. In this she is assisted by a master spy, an interesting character called Derry Brewer and his presence is an excellent device for moving events forward.

Yorkist fights Lancastrian and the sands shift endlessly as the great lords, Percy, Neville, Warwick etc struggle for power and control of the King and the country, and, as a bonus, settle old scores.

I bought the series at full amazon kindle cost. I suffer a lot of pain, and do a great deal of reading. I am really into history, especially war and or military involving the UK, as is and was. I ave read lots of IGGULDEN books, the complete series. He is is very readable (Cornwell is better) and I have not got sufficient knowledge to know how accurate the historical content actually is. Characters existed as did battles and the weaponry but as a story as opposed to factual there is a certain amount of fictional licence. That said, it is necessary and I have certainly learnt a great deal more about this historical period than I was aware of before reading the series. Worth the read. Book 1, 2, 3 represent decent value. Book 4 (kindle) is very expensive
