Must Read for War of Roses buffs

Iggulden's series is the most compelling and understandable account of this fascinating and complicated period.

Engrossing - the Finale at Bosworth is Superb

The much anticipated (by me anyway) final chapter in Igguldens War of the Roses continues to capture both how I'd imagine the mood of the time and and also the attitudes of the characters - a fascinating insight in the authors semi fictitious medieval England... Rather sad that it's over...
Written in much the same manner as the previous books.... it's a brooding blend of plotting, spying, fighting and the humour of Derry Brewer the fictitious spymaster.... using the Wars of the Roses as a plot outline - which in itself is quite fantastical. It's a great way to learn by osmosis how the country evolved into the more stable Tudor period - bringing to life the dull and dusty dates and events which I vaguely remember learning in class.

We're very lucky to have characters like Iggulden around - not only willing to put in the research but having the talent to convert that into entertaining literature. If you haven't read the previous parts then you have the fabulous opportunity to get hold of them and read straight through all 4.

Gripping final episode.

What a storyline! Conn Iggulden has a mastery of storytelling and when it's mixed with brilliant research, makes for an addictive story. He draws you into caring for the characters, so when events unfurl, you're either shocked or saddened by them. I particularly like the way he delves into snatches of how life was like for characters we meet along the way, from servants to wannabes, and also details of weaponry, and the working of trades and barter etc. I really feel over this series I've been living in those times, and it's been immense!
Roy McMillan is a superb narrator, the inflections of sarcasm, hate, remorse, arrogance and some black humour, the intonations in his voice are brilliant. His pauses, softness and harshness of spitting and cussing bring this story to another level.

My only struggle, was that I'd last listened to what I 'presumed' was the ;last book 6 months ago, having listened to them in desperate quick succession. With such a twisting plot and people changing allegiancies, I was a bit lost at first and had to re-read some of third book, Bloodline to get back to grips with the characters and how they all fitted in. So now is the best time to dive into this 'other' world and just go with the flow!

Superb all round

Iggulden is a master and tells the astounding history of the war of the Roses brilliantly. The awesome story telling is equal only to the incredible performance of the narrator Roy McMillan, who bring the story to life with artful colour and articulation. The combination is very immersive and entertaining.

A fantastic end to a fantastic series

I've loved every book in this series - conn Iggulden brings medieval history to life and sits you front and square of every political argument, every battle and every treachery - I really hope he writes more about this intriguing period of history
