Witness the rise of the Tudors in the stunning conclusion to Conn Iggulden's powerful retelling of the Wars of the Roses. 'An utterly compelling page-turner full of historical facts. A fascinating read' Sun England, 1470. A divided kingdom cannot stand. King Edward of York has been driven out of England. Queen Elizabeth and her children tremble in sanctuary at Westminster Abbey. The House of Lancaster has won the crown, but York will not go quietly. Desperate to reclaim his throne, Edward lands at Ravenspur with a half-drowned army and his brother Richard at his side. Every hand is against them, every city gate is shut, yet the brothers York go on the attack. But neither sees that their true enemy is Henry Tudor, now grown into a man. As the Red Dragon - 'the man of destiny' - his claim to the throne leads to Bosworth Field and a battle that will call an end to the Wars of the Roses . . . 'A tough, pacy chronicle of bloody encounters, betrayals and cruelties. Superb' Daily Mail 'Iggulden is in a class of his own when it comes to epic, historical fiction' Daily Mirror 'Superb, fantastic, extraordinary' Sunday Express

«Und mein Speer fuhr in das Drachenauge, und der Schaft bebte, als das Schiff an uns vorüberglitt zu den ruhigeren Gewässern des Hafens, der vor dem Sturm geschützt wurde durch den gewaltigen Felsen, auf dem die Festung stand. Meine Festung. Bebbanburg.» Viele Jahre hat Uhtred gegen die Dänen und Norweger gekämpft. Inzwischen wird nur noch ein englisches Reich von einem Nordmann regiert, Northumbrien, dessen König Uhtreds Schwiegersohn ist. Die Zeit der Kriege scheint vorbei, und Uhtred sieht die Stunde gekommen, endlich Bebbanburg, den Sitz seiner Vorväter, zurückzuerobern. Doch der Frieden gebiert den Wunsch nach Krieg. Bald steht Uhtred drei mächtigen Gegnern gegenüber. Da hilft es nicht, nur tapfer in der Schlacht zu sein. Man muss auch klug sein wie eine Schlange.

The English have a rich and glorious history of making trouble for themselves. One hundred and forty years before the French Revolution, the English executed their king and instituted a radical revolutionary government. In 1215, more than 570 years before the United States ratified its Bill of Rights, England's barons forced King John to accept the Magna Carta. In 1926 over 1.5 million strikers brought the nation to its knees. From the Peasants' Revolt to the suffragettes, from Oliver Cromwell to Arthur Scargill, this ground-breaking and hugely enjoyable book describes a rich and continuous tradition of resistance, rebellion and radicalism, of violent and charismatic individuals with axes to grind, and of social eruptions and political earthquakes that have shaped England's whole culture and character.

A HANSOM pulled up in front of 799, Park Lane, and a slim figure of a woman, dressed in deep mourning, ran up the broad flight of marble steps leading to the house. Her features were closely concealed by a thick veil, so that the footman who answered the ring could make nothing of the visitor. Her voice was absolutely steady as she asked to see Lord Ravenspur at once. "That is impossible, madam," the footman protested; "his lordship is not yet down, and besides—" "There is no 'besides' about it," the visitor said, imperiously. "It is a matter of life and death."

Her hair was black and silk against her ivory skin; her gray eyes burned with opal fire. The love child of King Edward IV, Roseanna was pledged to her father's most prized warrior. He was dark, strong, and commanding, and in the bedchamber, where he forced her to honor her marriage vows, she learned not to crave his intoxicating touch. And still she swore not to love him even as she surrendered to the dark rapture of...the Raven. From the Paperback edition.
