Review of ‘King in Waiting’ from the Richard III Society

I’ve just received my copy of March’s Ricardian Bulletin hotfoot from the Richard III Society – and I’m delighted to see there’s a fantastic review of King in Waiting in it.

Judith Ridley, chair of the Thames Valley branch, says ‘The series is well researched … I enjoyed reading it’, and picks out ‘stand-out descriptive passages’ that ‘made me feel as if I were in the room’ (or perhaps ship, in the case of the ‘very real storm at sea’ 🙂 )

She also says she’s looking forward to the next book, Sons of York.

Thank you, Judith, for a great review – and you (and she) may be pleased to hear editing of Sons of York is well underway. Watch this space for details of the upcoming publication…

And don’t forget, if you’ve enjoyed reading King in Waiting (or indeed, The Order of the White Boar or The King’s Man), please consider posting a review on Amazon or GoodReads yourself. It’s very easy to do – just go to the relevant page for the book and check ‘Review this Product‘. Thank you!
