Start your review of Stormbird Wars of the Roses, 1 Write a review Shelves: historical , 4-star-reads I think the style of Igguldens writing made this novel what it is. He shows us each characters situation in a manner that suggests that there is no right or wrong.

Both sides of the war had a reason to fight, and the authors portrays this is a completely neutral manner; thus, he leaves it up to the reader to decide if they follow the white rose or the red rose into battle, and the nest of court politics.

Personally, I was rooting for the house of York. Duke Richard only wanted what was best for his country. This, for me, made the story quite strong because we got to see how the decisions made by the ruling class affected those in the ranks of the army. Indeed, Henry VI decides to give up his lands in France, so the English settlers are forced to flee their homesteads from the incoming French.

He intended the decision to lead to peace, but instead many of his subjects were slaughtered. I am disappointed in you, William Pole. The French looked for foxes and found only innocent chickens, just like we wanted. The marriage will go ahead and all we need to do now is mention casually to the English living in Maine and Anjou that their service is no longer appreciated by the Crown. In short, that they can fuck off. But, in this novel I did come to sympathise with her.

She was, undeniably, a strong woman. She had to be for her husband; she was the strength behind the red rose. Her husband goes into a catatonic state and she, his young and foreign queen, is left holding the reins of power. I only wish she could have seen York for what he was.

I think Iggulden has really got into the minds of these historical figures, and tried to explain, in a fictional sense, the reasoning behind their actions. When the King enters his catatonic state they have their perfect opportunity. They simply wanted a better leader not one who surrender hard won land in France; they wanted a man like Henry Bolingbroke or his son: they wanted the house of York.

Though, the ultimate climax of this is still a few books away. The surrendering or French soil is seen through the eyes of an English archer who has settled with his family. I think the series has a lot of potential, but I do hope the author shifts to some new point of view characters as the war develops. Whilst I enjoyed Margaret of Anjou as a narrator, I do think he will have to move away from her as her centrality of English politics begins to diminish with the new York reign.

Well, it depends how far this series goes. War of the Roses series: 1. Stormbird- An interesting four stars.
