About this deal

The cover gleams gold and there is a coloured map at the front and a lovely illustrated royal family tree at the back. Fine condition used Oct 2013 Exclusive Signed First Edition/ First Print Hardback with intact unclipped Dust Jacket. 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. An ex-teacher, he is used to holding the attention of an audience and is funny, engaging and endlessly charming. His poor health and frailty of mind render him a weakling king - Henry depends on his closest men, Spymaster Derry Brewer and William de la Pole, Duke of Suffolk, to run his kingdom.

Stormbird’ is about King Henry VI of England, that decent and pious man who was so completely unable to rule as his father had done – the immortal victor of Agincourt. Qué maravilla de señora, estoy segura de que va a dar mucho juego en los siguientes libros, o eso espero. My mother is Irish and from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories – with dates. Intact clean condition pictorial dust jacket with slight creasing to edges, slight signs of handling.

Stormbird is the thrilling new novel by bestselling, accomplished author Conn Iggulden (author of Caesar and Genghis Khan Series).

His fears seem justified as English power comes under threat from France, and discontent and rebellion spread at home. In March 2006, Iggulden released a novelette entitled Blackwater, part of the Quick Reads initiative of World Book Day 2006.Given how violent and exciting this time actually was, it is amazing that it is constantly overshadowed by the Tudors. In 2017, Iggulden released the first book in the fantasy series Darien: Empire of Salt, under the pen name C. In 1437, the Lancaster king Henry VI ascends the throne of England after years of semi-peaceful regency.

Another gripping character is Thomas Woodchurch, an English settler in the county of Maine and an old companion of Derry. I was also intrigued by the way he made Richard Duke of York the villain and the Duke of Suffolk, William de la Pole, into a tragic hero. While I am sad st at what happened to him, I am glad Conn stuck to the truth of his death (NOT a spoiler since of course ALL these people are dead for real. Through blood and treason, broken men and vengeful women, brother shall confront brother, king shall face king.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. King Henry, the Lion of England is long dead, and his son Henry VI coming of age and taking the throne in AD 1437. In 2007, Iggulden became the first person to top the UK fiction and nonfiction lists at the same time. Escogí este libro porque me cuadraba para dos retos y ha resultado una gran sorpresa y de las buenas, no, de las mejores.
