King Henry V - the great Lion of England - is long dead.

In 1437, after years of regency, the pious and gentle Henry VI, the Lamb, comes of age and accedes to the English throne. 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.

Yet there are those, such as the Plantagenet Richard, Duke of York, who believe England must be led by a strong king if she is to survive. With England's territories in France under threat, and rumours of revolt at home, fears grow that Henry and his advisers will see the country slide into ruin. With a secret deal struck for Henry to marry a young French noblewoman, Margaret of Anjou, those fears become all too real.

As storm clouds gather over England, King Henry and his supporters find themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who, or what can save the kingdom before it is too late?


This is actually the second time I’m reading War Of The Roses: Stormbird by Conn Iggulden.

I loved this book when I first read it, loving how we got to see different point of views from various characters.
The reason why I’m reading this again is because I still haven’t read book two after all this time. Book three is out and I can’t believe I haven’t continued with this series.

As I promised earlier this year, I plan to finish series that I have started, or haven’t gotten around to yet.
Book three is out, but I did hear there will be a book four later on. But unlike before, I’m not going to wait years before I do it.

I’m on page 32 at the moment, and I’m pleased to say, so far, I’m still loving it.
