Conn Iggulden ¸ 7 REVIEW CHARACTERS ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ¸ Conn Iggulden CHARACTERS Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors England 1470 A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand The Yorkist king Edward IV is driven out of England his wife and children forced to seek sanctuary from the House of Lancaster Yet rage and humiliation prick Edward back to greatness He lands at Ravenspur with a half drowned army and his brother Richard at his. I read this book a year ago and it annoyed me so much at the time that I m only just now bothering to write a review for it Poor editorial decisions have ruined what could have been a strong ending to an otherwise strong seriesIt should have been two books The first three hundred pages or so depicted the final days of Edward IV s reign It was told in all the detail is should have been A perfect end to the novel would have been the death of such a stable monarch The aftermath that followed was chaotic and uncertain again a great place to leave off The second part of the novel only around a hundred pages or so depicted Richard III s kingship This crammed in his courtship of his own niece the death of his wife the princes in the tower incident and his demise at Bosworth So that s uite a lot of story to fit in before the rise of the Tudor dynastyHaving read the previous three books over a number of years normally just after release I was very eager to see the end of this one It s a period of history I find fascinating I read Philippa Gregory s The Cousin s War series in conjunction with this and I couldn t wait to see how Iggulden addressed the rise and fall of Richard III in comparison Unfortunately he absolutely butchered it What we have here is a basic brushed over series of events that needed their own novel Richard was betrayed by his own men I know why but Iggulden didn t show me here Instead it felt completely random and unjustified Where s RichardThe result was a very very disappointing ending to a series I ve enjoyed immensely over the last three years There were so many gaps in the narrative and so many things barely touched upon The Buckingham rebellion was over before it even began the final action seuence was fairly well written though it had no foundations to achieve any dramatic effect Sharon Penman s The Sunne in Spelndour makes Iggulden s depiction of Richard seem lazy and amateurish Dare I say it but the villainous one dimensional version created by Shakespeare had substance and character to him And that says a lot considering the Bard purposely made him narrow minded perverted and plain evil as to gain favour with the Tudor dynasty However this isn t to overlook the first part of the novel even if the Richard section was uite literally slapped on the end There was some great storytelling it was up to standard and it really followed on well from the previous book The title Ravenspur is a reference to Edward s return landing onto the shores of England It s appropriate The second part Rise of the Tudors should have been the name for the fifth book in the series a book that should have just been about Richard III and the subseuent victory of Henry VII I read this series and others like it in order to gain a window into understanding some of Shakespeare s history plays The background knowledge of some of the events certainly helped but I think now I will be moving away from such readings
