    One thought on “Rebellion”

    1. Superb account of the Wars of the Roses, covering the years 1462-1471. Soundly based on historical sources, extracts from which it includes, it nevertheless allows the personal and often agonising drama of key figures in the conflict to have its time on the page. A distinct step up from Succession.

    2. This is a marvellous trilogy- the author is able to convey such substance in several finely draw characters with relatively few sentences. The story is compelling: the ruinous dynastic wars of 15th century England, but it's the author's skill in creating flesh and blood individuals, whom you come to feel for while following the ebb and flow of their changing fortunes, that is most appealing. That, and the author's decision to weave into the narrative portions of the 15th century chronicles thems [...]

    3. I loved SUCCESSION and was looking forward to reading the sequel - and if anything I enjoyed this second book even more. The earlier part of REBELLION mainly follows Margaret of Anjou and her desperate, but determined efforts to ensure that her son will eventually become King of England. As in the first book the fiction is interspersed with excerpts from contemporary chronicles which contribute to the extraordinary sense of reality. Margaret of Anjou is no traditional heroine, she makes the wron [...]

    4. My own fault for not knowing the history but I found the different narrators confusing and had to battle through to the end.

    5. The Wars of the Roses are one of those parts of English history that I know a bit about but really not enough, so I found the background of this book an interesting prospect. It seems a bit odd calling it Historical Fiction give it is a very accurate chronicle of events, but it isn't a reference book listing plain events and dates, Livi Michael deftly adds colour and humanity to the events whilst staying very loyal to the facts.This book does suffer a little from something completely outside of [...]

    6. “The world had changed, England had changed…”Rebellion is the continuation of the story of the Wars of the Roses and spans from June 1462 to June 1471. Those familiar with its captivating prequel Succession will notice an all different kind of England with Rebellion unfortunately. Gone are the deliciously wicked characterizations from Succession, sharp witty dialogue and exciting events presented in rich tableaus that just beg to be read and indulged in. In this novel and for this eager re [...]

    7. This series has swept me away. I am living again in the turbulent period of the wars of the roses following the footsteps of two determined women. Wonderfully written and an engrossing read.
