it was ok
Recommended for: History buffs
Read in March, 2008

Had high expectations, but prose clumsy, plot forced, and characters stiff and unconvincing. Dutiful - not dynamic - history. Despite good intentions, not enough heart. Almost hagiographic. Beautiful cover, but for a much more compelling version of the Richard III/War of the Roses stories, look to Penman's The Sunne in Splendour.
