9780099585879: Kingmaker: Winter Pilgrims (Kingmaker 1)

'An enthralling adventure story, honest and powerful. The Wars of the Roses are imagined here with energy, with ferocity, with hunger to engage the reader.' Hilary Mantel

February 1460

In the bitter dawn of a winter’s morning, a young man and a woman escape from a priory.

In fear of their lives, they are forced to flee across a land ravaged by conflict.

For this is the Wars of the Roses, one of the most savage and bloody civil wars in history,

Where brother confronts brother, king faces king,

And Thomas and Katherine must fight - just to stay alive ...

Review:

"Magnificent. An historical tour de force, revealing Clements to be a novelist every bit as good as Cornwell, Gregory or Iggulden. Kingmaker is the best book I’ve read this year by some margin." ( Ben Kane)

"It’s amazing … there’s a real sense of time and place, and real immersion in the period, real rounded characters, with utterly plausible lives. Fantastic! People who love Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell are going to love it too." ( Manda Scott)

"Toby Clements captures the grimness, grit and grime of 15th-century life, but with compassion and humanity, as seen through the eyes of common people ... period detail is wonderfully accurate as are the setpiece skirmishes and bloodbath at Towton." ( Daily Mail)

"It is Clements’s ability to excite both tender emotions and a capacity for bloodthirstiness that has allowed him to achieve what Shakespeare couldn’t manage, and spin a consistently enthralling story out of the Wars of the Roses." ( Daily Telegraph)

" Kingmaker is a huge work; intelligent, well-researched, entertaining ... and even, better, there's stacks more to come." ( Sunday Sport)

Book Description:

Set during England's bloody and brutal War of the Roses, the first novel in an epic historical fiction series. If you liked Conn Iggulden's Stormbird, you will love Toby Clement's KINGMAKER novels.
