Wyvern and Star by Sophy Boyle

If you're a fan of historical fiction, you're going to love this. Set in the midst of the Wars of the Roses, Wyvern and Star is the first in a series which follows an ill-starred pair of lovers. Apply to win one of six signed copies below.

Vengeance is lame. But it is coming.

The year is 1470. A decade has passed since the house of York destroyed Robert Clifford’s life and drove him from his lands – a decade of wandering, exile, and waning hopes. Now the house of Lancaster is rising once more and Robert leaps at the chance to reclaim what is his. But the stakes are impossibly high, and in the storm to come, he risks the loss of his companions, his sons and Alice de Vere, the woman he loves.

Wyvern and Star is the first in a series that charts the parallel stories of this ill-starred pair, drawn together by a shared allegiance and divided by war.

Boyle brings the Wars of the Roses to life with her evocative prose and modern voice. Readers with a taste for hard-edged historical fiction will love its thrilling, twisting plot, gallows humour and vivid detail.
