The first book in #1 New York Times bestselling author Conn
Iggulden’s brilliant new historical series about two families who plunged
England into a devastating, decades-long civil war.
In 1437, the Lancaster King
Henry VI ascends the throne of England after years of semi-peaceful regency.
Named “The Lamb,” Henry is famed more for his gentle and pious nature than his
father’s famous battlefield exploits; already, his dependence on his closest
men has stirred whispers of weakness at court.
A secret truce
negotiated with France to trade British territories for a royal bride—Margaret
of Anjou—sparks revolts across English territory. The rival royal line, the
House of York, sees the chaos brought on by Henry’s weakness and with it not
only opportunity in the monarch, but also their patriotic duty in ousting an
ineffectual king. 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? Download and start listening now!
