Conn Iggulden’s Wars of the Roses series, begun so brilliantly with Stormbird and continuing in tremendous style in 2014 with Trinity, is proving to be one of the finest historical fiction series about, without a shadow of doubt. I was thrilled to be invited to review Trinity for the Sunday Express this Autumn, this being the only reason why I haven’t as yet raved about it in these pages. I didn’t want the year to pass without including it and so here is the link to the review in the Express.
To sum up: ‘Trinity might be the middle book of a trilogy but it is a well-structured, stand-alone novel. As with most civil wars, there is good and bad on both sides and Conn Iggulden, a master storyteller, knows how to challenge and re-evaluate our sympathies while making our blood flow faster.’
