    One thought on “Bloodline”

    1. This was just so damn good. The entire novel felt like one great big action sequence, as Iggulden captured the desperate, and crucial, nature of the fighting superbly. It was violent and intense; it was clever and brutal, more importantly though, it was careful. Edward and Warwick knew that their future and the continuing existence of their houses rested on this conflict. They couldn’t lose: they couldn’t make a mistake. So they didn’t.The sons truly have been unleashed -King Edward VI and [...]

    2. I had previously read the first novel in the series Stormbird and liked it but did not love it - the fictional character Derry Brewer was irritatingly unreal to me. In this third novel he only has a small part and his behavior and actions are much more believable.The novel is divided into two parts: the first mainly dealing with the vicious Battle of Towton between the Lancastrian army led by Margaret of Anjou (Henry VI's wife) and the one led by Edward of York and Richard Neville ("the Kingmake [...]

    3. This series just keeps getting better and better, but being a Yorkist I wish Edward IV was portrayed more positively but I suspect it's accurate. Can't wait for the next volume but a year to wait I guess

    4. Nearly a 5 Star as its a 4.5pts for me.Back on familiar ground with the third instalment of Conn Iggulden’s War of the Roses!It grows on you, many new characters come to the fore after the last series climaxed in the fall of the Duke of York & it takes a little time to attune but once you are there its a smooth ride of a story. By now Derry is older & maybe not so wiser whilst the Queen has matured as she’s doubled in age from the frightened 15 year old girl that arrived in England. [...]

    5. Conn Iggulden is one of the finest storytellers out there and it's no surprise to me that Bloodline proved to be an outstanding, powerful novel that fully immersed me in the events of the Wars of the Roses for two glorious days. History - and some of the most dominant personalities of the mid 15th century - comes alive on the page.

    6. Once again Mr. Iggulden has written a very, very good historical novel. This entry in his Wars of the Roses series covers the time from just after the Battle of Wakefield to when Richard Neville, the Earl of Warwick AKA the King Maker, decides to throw his lot in with Lancastrian cause, roughly from 1460 – 1469. The novel is divided into two parts. The first part covers the time for just after the Battle of Wakefield to the Battle of Towton. I felt this section had some of the best and most ev [...]

    7. I love how Iggulden brings something new to the Wars of the Roses in each installment in this series. He has taken a story that has been told many times and adds in a few new details that other authors left in the background. An example: the opening scene at York's Micklegate with men struggling to place the heads of Richard of York, Richard Neville of Salisbury, and Edmund of Rutland on spikes. I think I was holding my breath.Margaret should have taken the Duke of York's warning more seriously. [...]

    8. After being slightly disappointed with the previous book in this series, I was anxious to see if Iggulden returned to some of what made Stormbird so fantastic. I was not disappointed with Bloodlines. This King Edward, oh my. What a beefcake.

    9. This book starts with the buildup to the famous battle of Towton. Edward Plantagenet of House York has taken to the field. The English people and many lords are rising up for him. But Henry, primarily Queen Margaret, also have their forces. The two meet in a large snowstorm outside of Towton.The rest of the book gets into the conflict that arises by Edward marrying Elizabeth Woodville and then promoting her family to high positions, which then cause problems with the Nevilles.The Wars of the Ros [...]

    10. This is a great book, superbly plotted and paced. Conn Iggulden is in a class of his own when it comes to epic, historical fictionAfter the death of Richard, duke of York, the warrior queen Margaret of Anjou continues her battle against the houses of York and Neville, trying to secure the throne for her husband, Henry VI of Lancaster.This third book is the best one yet. There are two battles and fortunes waivered. We see the rise of King Edward IV, the decline of Margaret of Anjou. The spotlight [...]

    11. For Christmas 2014, I received the second book in this series, Trinity. For Christmas 2015, I received Bloodline. And I'm feeling slight deja vu, because I'm doing exactly the same thing to Bloodline as I did to Trinity: putting it on hold. There's nothing wrong with it - in fact, it's really good - it's just not grabbing my attention at the moment. I have so many other books I received for Christmas to read, and this one is massive and will take me forever to get through, so it's going on hold [...]

    12. Superb historical fiction. Conn Iggulden is without doubt, one of the best writers of historical fiction today. The complexity of the various factions and switches in fortune during the Wars of the Roses can be difficult to follow. From the very start, even after a year of waiting, you are quickly drawn back into the history and excitement. Now comes the wait for the next in the series. After all, the Wars of the Roses have still not drawn to a close.

    13. Ok, this actually pains me a little to write this but I have been a massive Conn Iggulden fan since as a teenage lad I picked up Wolf of the Plains and got sucked into the world of Genghis Khan, which has remained both my favorite book of his and my favorite historical fiction book of all time. Until now. Maybe. I'm actually still undecided. But one thing I am decided on is the awesomeness of this book.The third in the trilogy on the Wars of the Roses and things are in full swing. There are batt [...]

    14. Well, three audiobooks down, one to go and number 3 in this series was well done. Iggulden has done it again with his battle sequences and political intrigue.The trinity of lords York, Salisbury and Warwick have been defeated by Margaret of Anjou and her allies, but the War of the Roses is not yet over as Edward of York rises in vengeance for his father with the help of the Kingmaker Richard Neville.I was quite pleased this series ended up being four books as opposed to being a trilogy because i [...]

    15. Bloodline is a continuation of the excellent historical fiction series about the Wars of the Roses. This book takes place between 1461 and and 1469, coverings several of the major battles between the two factions. It also covers the downfall of the Neville family due to the influence of Elizabeth Woodville, King Edward IV's queen.Iggulden's battle scenes are excellent. In this book, he paints a vivid picture of the famous Battle of Towton, which was one of the largest battles fought on English s [...]

    16. Certain authors tickle my fancy; Conn Iggulden is one of them.A master at researching and crafting novels that’s both informative and entertaining, Iggulden has once again surpassed expectations with the third installment of his Wars of the Roses series, Bloodline. This book plays off pretty soon after the conclusion of Trinity, and we are privy to enjoying further conflict as the York’s and the Lancaster’s continue to battle it out for the English crown. While Margaret of Anjou is set on [...]

    17. Another excellent edition in Iggulden's War of the Roses series.Here he brings the battles front and center with an absolute minimum of backroom deals and bedroom intrigues. Its a masculine take on the events, which makes for an interesting angle, given other takes on the events of the era. This is historical fiction meets military fiction. He wants the reader to GET IT why, exactly, the Battle of Towton goes down in history as one of the worst battles EVER. And as Iggulden's teases out the perh [...]

    18. It's the individual authors take on these historical times and how each author brings them life in different way that makes historical fiction so much for me and how I am able to read so many books based on the same points in time and still learn something new from each of them without ever getting bored. I loved Sharon Kay Penman's books, especially The Sunne in Splendour. But Iggulden gives me a different view. If you want more action less talking and if you love descriptive passages of histor [...]

    19. It took a long time to finish this with exams and work piling up my desk, but nevertheless, finished it I did. AND HELL YEAH WAS THAT A GOOD BOOK!I like how despite the fact that it is the third instalment of the series, the story is as gripping as the other two. However, the only flaw is that it seemed a little bit one-sided? In other words, it's more like a historical account of the Nevilles than the Plantagenets themselves. It would be nice to read through more of the Woodvilles or Plantagene [...]

    20. The jump from the last update to this was in one read. I couldn't put it down!I love historical fiction and yet (apart from documentaries and text books) this series is my first foray into Wars of the Roses. I'm enjoying what Conn has done with it so far. An interesting viewpoint on the main players in this, the original Game of Thrones. The battles are visual and visceral and the setting and characters quickly become familiar. Warwick was my fave in this book and I look forward to the next to c [...]

    21. Another great book in the War of the Roses series. I’m not surprised really, Conn Iggulden is one of the best authors ever.You’re not just reading facts about true events from the past, you are there, fighting with Margaret of Anjou, Richard of York, Richard of Warwick, and my favourite character, Derry Brewer.In this book, I finally get to read the big battle of Towton. Of course, I wasn’t disappointed. I was on the edge of my seat even though I knew the outcome.I was really looking forwa [...]

    22. My Thoughts On The Book: 'A page-turning thriller' Mail on SundayThe Plot Of The Story: Wowsers! These books just get better and better with each and every book!Finally in this book we catch up with the more well known portion of The War Of Roses as Edward of York becomes king and takes widowed Elizabeth Woodville as his wife. Slowly the Woodville family begins to insinuate themselves into every corner of the crown, much to the disgust of Warwick, the Kingmaker.Margaret of Anjou is still on the [...]

    23. Book 1: Stormbird reviewBook 2: Trinity reviewBook 4: Ravenspur: Rise of the Tudors reviewReread: May 2016It's been less than a year since I first read this, but I decided to reread the entire series in preparation for the new book coming out this month. I have to say, I enjoyed this so much more reading it straight after books one and two. It flowed a lot better and I was left more satisfied at the end. Also, for some reason I thought this was a trilogy - I'm not entirely sure where I picked th [...]

    24. I highly recommend this book and this author. Of all the wonderful authors on these same subjects, this author writes it best. Thank you, Mr. Iggulden, for a GOOD READ!

    25. I do enjoy Conn Iggulden's writing , think this was my fave of his series from the war of the roses books. I enjoy reading about the Plantagenets especially Edward and Elizabeth.
