Historical fiction master Conn Iggulden retells the gripping story of the English Civil War in this first instalment of his latest Wars of the Roses series.

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

In 1437 his gentle son comes of age and takes the throne. Frail in body and mind, King Henry VI is dependent on his supporters to run his kingdom.

Richard, Duke of York, however, believes that without a strong king England will fall. His fears seem justified as English power comes under threat from France, and discontent and rebellion spread at home.

On the counsel of his advisers, Henry marries the young princess Margaret of Anjou, in order to forge an alliance with France - but is it too late?

As the storm clouds gather, King Henry and his queen are besieged abroad and at home.
Who can save the throne? Who will save the kingdom?

Stormbird is followed by Trinity, also available from Penguin Random House UK. Perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell, Ken Follett and Hilary Mantel.

Praise for Conn Iggulden:

'This is energetic, competent stuff; Iggulden knows his material and his audience' Independent

'Iggulden is in a class of his own when it comes to epic, historical fiction' Daily Mirror

'Iggulden...tells an absolutely cracking story' The Times

Review:

Pacey and juicy, and packed with action (Sunday Times)

Energetic, competent stuff; Iggulden knows his material and his audience (Independent)

A novel that seamlessly combines narrative, historical credence and great knowledge of the period (Daily Express)

Iggulden is in a class of his own when it comes to epic, historical fiction (Daily Mirror)

Superbly plotted and paced (The Times)

Conn breathes new life into the darkest and most dramatic of times, with a flair for both the huge scale and human interest of it all (Star)

Exceptionally well-written and gripping (Stylist)

Compelling reading (Woman & Home)

A benchmark for historical fiction, showcasing Conn Iggulden at his finest (Parmenion Books blog)

Full of period detail, the narrative weaves a glittering thread through the complex, political chaos of the time. It's been said that Game of Thrones is the Wars of the Roses written as fantasy: this is the real thing, more glorious, more passionate, far, far more gritty (Manda Scott, author and head of HWA)

From the Back Cover:

'Superb, rollicking, a triumph. A rich and vivid tapestry . . . providing plenty of twists, turns, treachery and treason'
Daily Express
