I've read plenty of historical fiction and much of it is heavy-going. I couldn't put this one down!This book is a good read, a fast paced historical adventure utilizing colourful and complex characters to tell a truly dramatic story.I really enjoyed the character development in this book, especially the complex and occasionally subtle interplay between Edgar and William the Conqueror.One of the better novels on the English resistance after 1066. Edgar Atheling is a complex, elusive and frustrating historical character but that allows for some scope in trying to portray him within a novel such as this. Martin Lake is convincing in his characterization of the key figures including Edgar. Did not know what I was getting into - but wow- how did I miss this one - what a great read, face paced, plenty of action and the right amount of detail to be convincing. Went straight on to the second book which was equally brilliant and can't wait for the next one.Wasteland.Every bit as good as its prequel, The Lost King: Resistance. Don't be put off if you don't like history. This story will appeal to anyone, whether interested in history or not. I wanted Edgar to win, even though I knew he wouldn't. Writing style, characterisation, storyline all first rate.Martin Lake has written an extremely tense historical thriller as we follow the devastation of England and the despair of Edgar as he sees his country suffering and his own life in danger. Now I am waiting to read the next volume in this excellent trilogy.A great sequel in the story of the real king of England when William the Conqueror took over. Believable characters, gripping story, from a history I didn't know. Makes me root for King Edgar even though history tells us he doesn't win. Can't wait for the third book!

"As gripping as any detective fiction. Proof that one doesn't need to be fascinated with Richard III to be enthralled by the story of his body's discovery." ―Publisher's Weekly In August 2012 a search began, and on February 4, 2013, a team from Leicester University delivered its verdict to a mesmerized press room and to the world: they had found the remains of Richard III, whose legacy was perhaps the most contested of all British monarchs. Prior to this major discovery, there had been little new information about Richard III for some time. With no new evidence to fuel it, the debate over what kind of man he might have been seemed to have stalled. Thus the story of the discovery of Richard III is a story of the value of archaeology―careful analysis of physical evidence backed up by the latest science and technology―and how it can change our understanding of history. Firsthand accounts from the team that found the king, along with photographs from the author’s own archives and an expanded epilogue incorporating new DNA evidence, augment this compelling detective story as the evidence is uncovered. 43 illustrations
