The thrilling first instalment in the Wars of the Roses series - set at the beginnings of this turbulent period of English history which saw the throne change hands six times in 30 years.
The Swan sees Henry VI crowned King of England and married to the young French noblewoman, Margaret of Anjou - and so begins the extraordinary story of how England became a divided nation, where brother took up arms against brother. This was the war which defined the England we know today.
The Wars of the Roses series will be a landmark piece of historical fiction writing, with all the intrigue, drama, and action one expects from one of the biggest names in the genre. This is Conn Iggulden at his finest.

Wonderful read and would read again.
I have not read one of his books before but this book intrigued me from beginning to end. I look forward to reading the next book of the series. This book has enough historical information mixed with fiction that it gives an almost true account of that time. If this period interests you, then you will enjoy this book.
