    The thing that I like most about this series is that it isn t told from the point of view of historical figures it is told from the point of view of two normal people The Wars of the Roses is a very popular era for historical novelists to write about, so it s quite hard to come up with something new By the protagonists, essentially, being commoners we get to see how the wars affected the everyday man as well as the major political figures of the age So that, in itself, is a fresh take on thi The thing that I like most about this series is that it isn t told from the point of view of historical figures it is told from the point of view of two normal people The Wars of the Roses is a very popular era for historical novelists to write about, so it s quite hard to come up with something new By the protagonists, essentially, being commoners we get to see how the wars affected the everyday man as well as the major political figures of the age So that, in itself, is a fresh take on this era of historical fiction Two well written protagonists The two central characters of this are both very believable people Thomas is a priest hoisted into the role of a reluctant solider, and after fighting at Towtan, at the end of the last novel, he has got himself into quite a state He has short term memory loss and has to piece together the events of the last book, so he turns up at his brother s door completely mute with a massive head injury Katherine was a nun who was abused by her fellow sisters, so she fled from the cloisters She still clings to her faith, but she doesn t trust the church in which she was abused Both protagonists are undergoing a crisis of faith, which, for me, evokes their reluctance to be a part of the wars They are normal people and have a normal crisis within their souls Happenchance has hoisted them both into the wars and they are forced to make decisions that no wearer of the cloth should ever have to make This leaves them in a situation where they are forced to fight, and kill, to survive it renders them in a situation that questions their Christianity can they truly call themselves faithful after what they ve done But, it s too similar to the first book In spite of the well written characters, whose relationship has also developed, the plot of the book has a striking resemblance to that of the first one Thomas and Katharine both find themselves back at the priory which, again, they have to escape They live in fear of Sir Riven, this time the son of the first, and the book builds up to another similar battle sequence I was hoping to see the plot develop and go off in a new and exciting direction instead the series took two steps back and began where the last book did Eventually, some progress was made, but not until two hundred pages of very familiar plotting was delivered.This really affected my rating of this novel However, it did redeem itself in the second half somewhat, but the damage was unfortunately already done This was through the revelation of what the Pardoner s book contained This thrust the two characters into the politics of the wars rather than just being bystanders of the events I think what his book contained was a clever idea that helped to bring everything together I m still unsure why this series is called Kingmaker Thus far the Kingmaker, Earl Warwick, is nosignificant than any other nobleman in the plot he has noimportance than the Duke of Somerset or King Edward IV So, the question lingers why does the series bare his name Maybe time will tell.Despite my criticisms the reading experience remains a fairly positive one I think the first in the series was a better novel, and I hope that the third, and final, instalment is not the same thing repeated again Also, I think the cover art on this edition is disgusting the publishers should have kept the authentic brown parchment effect of the first novel This blue cover with a flag is just plain ugly But, that s beside the point I hope the third book saves this series A repetitive, and disappointing, two stars

    The Wars of the Roses were a bleak and bloody time for England, for all levels of society from its displaced kings and disgraced lords to its archers and farmers, as well as the surgeons who had to sew the soldiers back together after the battle Toby Clements spares us none of the horror and drama It s so good to return to the story of Thomas and Katherine.

    For me, this was a substantial improvement on Winter Pilgrims although to be honest, I didn t think so for the first quarter of the book Katherine and Thomas are very much prey to the twists and turns of malign fate On this occasion it seems that fate has a nasty sense of humour and drops them straight back into Haverhurst Priory Thomas missing presumed dead after Towton and Katherine caught in what can best be called an assumed identity trap need to be reunited Sending them both back For me, this was a substantial improvement on Winter Pilgrims although to be honest, I didn t think so for the first quarter of the book Katherine and Thomas are very much prey to the twists and turns of malign fate On this occasion it seems that fate has a nasty sense of humour and drops them straight back into Haverhurst Priory Thomas missing presumed dead after Towton and Katherine caught in what can best be called an assumed identity trap need to be reunited Sending them both back to that nasty corner of Lincolnshire seemed a gratuitously cruel thing for the author to do but in the context of the whole book I can see why it was done Once clear of Haverhurst the plot gets into its stride and the real positives of this book start to show Clements has some considerable skill in showing the impact of the struggle on the lives of ordinary men and women caught up in it The effect of an act of attainder on the immediate friends and family of those named in it could be devastating So too could the sudden reversal of that act and the arrival of the former owner to turf out the new man and reclaim his property The focus of the second half of the book is the war in the north between 1463 and 1464 To be fair, war is a bit of a misnomer The remnants of the Lancastrian forces are holed up in the border castles of Bamburgh, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh Morale, supplies, men and effective leadership are all in short supply and Clements depiction of this is never less than excellent So why not five stars My first reason is relatively minor as regards the overall plot Clements never satisfactorily explains Katherine s knowledge of surgery especially her seemingly instinctive understanding of the need to clean the wound Also, the way she uses ligatures seems to parallel the methods of Ambrose Pare and are thus about eighty years ahead of time.Secondly, Clements is not kind to his two protagonists Don t get me wrong I m not expecting the reverse You know, the sort of story where the hero bats aside all opposition, his nice best friend dies so they can survive the final showdown and then it s back home for tea and medals It s just that life for our two heroes is a constant two steps forward, three back There are few if any triumphs for them For me, the last third of the book is an emotional wringer a very well written one but an emotional wringer nonetheless The final scene in Warwick s camp outside the walls of Bamburgh Castle was especially painful Yes, they ve found the ledger evidencing the bastardy of Edward IV but they can t use it and in most other respects they seem to have run out of options Possibly surviving all they ve been through is triumph enough but it doesn t feel like it One of their main banes is dead, but his equally unpleasant son survives him and he s on the Yorkist side.I ll be watching for the next instalment of this story Divided Souls with interest Clements period feel is excellent and has helped kickstart my own fledgling writing efforts Here s hoping for a slightly easier road for Thomas and Katherine though

    4.5 stars Great MP3 recording as was the first in the series The 3rd book Divided Souls is not on MP3 so I am going to miss the voices I have seen some people on Goodreads didn t like this 2nd book as much as the 1st I liked this oneand I understand the 3rd in the series is even better I will be reading the book version I highly recommend this series which has Hilary Mantel s approval.


  5. James James says:

    Still good but It feels like the author took the writing plan from th first book and repeated them Mind you I suppose that is the war of the roses for you.

    This book seemed much shorter than the first Again 3 stars as it falls in the ok category I actually feel like this book wasn t nearly as good as the first.This book started off weird Almost like the author changed his mind as to how the story would go Which is fine, if it worked out well and I didn t find it did More of politics and unanswered questions that continue from the first book I m sure it will be told eventually but it feels like it s just dragging on and on To some up this b This book seemed much shorter than the first Again 3 stars as it falls in the ok category I actually feel like this book wasn t nearly as good as the first.This book started off weird Almost like the author changed his mind as to how the story would go Which is fine, if it worked out well and I didn t find it did More of politics and unanswered questions that continue from the first book I m sure it will be told eventually but it feels like it s just dragging on and on To some up this book is people deceive each other, than they like each other, than they fight each other, than they are back to liking each other and the cycle continues The main character still isn t anything special No hero status, just an ordinary person really who gets lucky, a lot There are a lot of different characters too Not that it s an issue, but it just seems like so many really weren t needed Again, the author has potential but there are things missing To much useless character conversations or character thoughts , dumb characters as in the author makes the characters seem like they are not getting understanding obvious situations Which is a huge pet peeve of mine when authors try to dumb their smart characters If you don t have to play it out for your readers, than you shouldn t have your characters doing it Last but not least, the characters again are just there No real like or dislike for them Some are actuallyannoying than likeable, when I think the authors intention was to have them likeable

    I gave this book 4 stars not for the plot but for the writing and in particular the development of the main characters Thomas and Katherine were as riveting as ever although I do think that the plot was a trifle same y to the first book I loved the fact that Katherine was a skilled surgeon and yet there s nothing which made us think there s no way she could have known that for the time I liked the part where she was boiling the instruments but she didn t know why, it just felt right I real I gave this book 4 stars not for the plot but for the writing and in particular the development of the main characters Thomas and Katherine were as riveting as ever although I do think that the plot was a trifle same y to the first book I loved the fact that Katherine was a skilled surgeon and yet there s nothing which made us think there s no way she could have known that for the time I liked the part where she was boiling the instruments but she didn t know why, it just felt right I really dislike it when characters who are supposedly medieval have thoughts, opinions, and especially knowledge that they just wouldn t have had So kudos for that It reminded me in the medical bits a little bit like Dr Quinn Medicine Woman but I m not really sure why I also liked the fact that the cause was not really relevant to the main characters, after all why would they really care who was king And that sides changed when it was convenient rather than trying to assert that these two commoners had a quest to put either king on the throne, after all that s for nobles to decide and not for peasants I didn t like it quite as much as the first one, I would have given 3.5 stars if I could, but I did like it, enjoy it, and want to read the next one That s if I can find it online without having to remortgage my house online book sellers, I m glaring at you taking advantage of a global pandemic


  8. Paula Lofting Paula Lofting says:

    This is a great story, well plotted, but with some aspects not very well thought out The present tense style raises the tension and makes it overly dramatic and almost depressing There is little cheer in this book There s a lot of misery, and nothing goes right for the poor heroine and hero I found it hard to warm to the characters, although I am sure the intention is to find them sympathetic But its a likeable book despite this, because of the clever plotline and the historical background This is a great story, well plotted, but with some aspects not very well thought out The present tense style raises the tension and makes it overly dramatic and almost depressing There is little cheer in this book There s a lot of misery, and nothing goes right for the poor heroine and hero I found it hard to warm to the characters, although I am sure the intention is to find them sympathetic But its a likeable book despite this, because of the clever plotline and the historical background I will continue to listen the the next in the series

    This second book in the series though not as good as the first and following dissapointingly similar lines is still a fantastic read It is very visceral and gritty which helps to bring it to life.
