Publisher's Summary

Set during England's bloody and brutal War of the Roses, this is the second novel in an epic historical fiction series. If you liked Conn Iggulden's Stormbird, you will love Toby Clements' Kingmaker novels.

October 1463. England is a divided nation. In the north the Lancastrian king struggles to hold power while in the south the princes of the house of York prepare for war. Across this land, pursued by the church and the law, a young man, Thomas, and a young woman, Catherine, make their way, bearing proof of a secret both sides will kill to learn.

Bent on revenge for a past outrage, Thomas and Catherine journey to the mighty castle of Bamburgh to join a weakening king as he marshals his army to take up arms in one of the most savage civil wars in history: the War of the Roses.

    An avid Audible listener for the past two years, it fits in superbly with my busy lifestyle. Love crime and historical novels most.

    "Cracking Good Read"

    This is Book Two in the Kingmaker series of the Wars of the Roses saga. I have to say that if you're a real history buff this book will possibly disappoint as this is less of a history book and more of a cracking good story.

    I love historical novels, amongst other types of books, but I can take the genre in lots of different guises. This series is turning into a brilliant series with Thomas and Katherine (Kit) on another set of adventures in pursuit of.....well I'm not quite sure...but along the way there are some brilliant twists and turns and loads of new, interesting characters to keep readers enthralled.

    The book ends with a real cliff hanger but no spoilers here, you'll have to listen/read it to find out. Our narrator, as always, is brilliant and it's hard to tell whether the characterisation is so good because of the excellent narration by Jack Hawkins or the brilliant definition by the author. Either way it's a match made in heaven and roll on Book Three.

    "Gripping"

    Continued from the first book brilliantly. The attention to historical detail and constant plot twists make the book five stars.

    "Unusual, captivating and enjoyable"

    I am not usually a fan of stories written in the present tense but, for once, it works perfectly here: in fact, it adds to the tension and believability.

    "Good, if a little harrowing"

    I started this straight after the first book. I found it quite draining, to be honest, as there is little let-up in the sequence of harrowing events that befall the main characters. It could have used some light relief at some point, as sometimes I felt like I was listening to Hardy's Jude the Obscure, but with even more death and misery!
    Still, the plot was engaging, if a little tenuous at times. A little more description and character development would have improved it considerably as otherwise it ended up being a bit of a trashy thriller, which it didn't have to be. But overall I enjoyed this book and will crack on with the third installment.

    "The Kingmaker series is brilliant."

    This is the most wonderful historical series I have listened to or read in many years. The authenticity of the characters , the descriptions of the life at the time and the way that history is brought to life is just wonderful. Jack Hawkins, the narrator, is superb. What a brilliant combination. The epilogue by the author also just adds a little extra. I hope Toby Clements is going to write many more books!!

    "Not to my liking"

    could not get into this novel at all, just didn't grip my attention from the very beginning. shame as I had been looking forward to the two books after reading reviews.
    Can't please everyone all the time I suppose.

    "I loved it!"

    Very compulsive listening. Didn't get much else done for a few days. Especially good on boring car trips. Whilst not sure about the history I loved the characters and the narrative and look forward to part 3 .
