    Tom Holland, Guardian, Books of the Year

    It is 1501. Henry VII - a fugitive with Machiavellian charm - has won the throne of England through luck, guile and ruthlessness. But for many he remains a usurper. Now, his elder son is to marry a great Spanish princess in a wedding upon which the fate of the country will hang . . .

    Winter King vividly recreates the dark and dangerous birth of the Tudor dynasty, as England was ravaged by fear, conspiracies, corruption and treachery, and one man clung to his kingdom at any cost.

    'A masterpiece. rich, resonant and utterly compelling' Helen Castor, Sunday Telegraph, Books of the Year

    'Gripping . . . brilliant . . . The enigmatic Henry is brought thrillingly to life as one of the most unlikely but tenacious kings ever to wear the English crown' Dan Jones, Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year
