The brilliant retelling of the Wars of the Roses continues with Margaret of Anjou, the second gripping novel in the new series from historical fiction master Conn Iggulden. As traitors advance . . . a queen defends. It is 1454 and for more than a year King Henry VI has remained all but exiled in Windsor Castle, struck down by his illness, his eyes vacant, his mind blank. His fiercely loyal wife and queen, Margaret of Anjou, safeguards her husband’s interests, hoping that her son Edward will one day come to know his father. With each month that Henry is all but absent as king, Richard, the duke of York, protector of the realm, extends his influence throughout the kingdom. A trinity of nobles--York and Salisbury and Warwick--are a formidable trio and together they seek to break the support of those who would raise their colors and their armies in the name of Henry and his queen. But when the king unexpectedly recovers his senses and returns to London to reclaim his throne, the balance of power is once again thrown into turmoil. The clash of the Houses of Lancaster and York may be the beginning of a war that could tear England apart . . . Following Stormbird, Margaret of Anjou is the second epic installment in master storyteller Conn Iggulden’s new Wars of the Roses series. Fans of the Game of Thrones and the Tudors series will be gripped from the word “go.”

Charlie seems like a normal, modern guy, and up to now he didn’t even know about his amazing bloodline, which reaches back to the lost tribe of Benjamin. After the Benjamins defeated the Romans, they left Israel and wandered through northern Germany. Charlie is astonished to learn that his ancestors played a role in Charlemagne’s ascension, William the Conqueror’s rule over Normandy and England, and the founding of the American colonies. But the family’s place in history isn’t just impressive—it’s otherworldly. Along the way, there was a dose of the divine from Poseidon himself, injecting powers of mythical proportion into the bloodline. Now Charlie’s own powers have awakened as he finds himself heir to wealth beyond his wildest dreams. He’s always thought he was on the outside looking in, but now he learns that those set apart can become leaders, heroes, and world changers. Armed with his new knowledge, Charlie discovers that the very traits that made his family “different” also gave them strength and tenacity.
