The end was much too confusing...did Richard die at Bosworth Field or not? You can't tell with this account. Christine Schulz
Since then I have read several works about Richard III including the magnificent The Sunne In Splendour: A Novel of Richard III, Fortune's wheel and The Princes in the Tower. As well as seen the novilistic Richard III set against the backdrop of a 1930's Nazi type dictatorship in an imaginary England of the time.
This book definitely portrays Richard in a saintly light, and the villains of the piece are the Woodvilles (a vivid and engaging portrayal of Earl Rivers, Anthony Woodville) and later on the camp around Henry Tudor (Warrington has Margaret of Beaufort, Henry's mother play a particular sinister central twist)
And Ricardians will be glad to see their hero absolved of all blame for the murder of the princes in the tower.
Quite a vivid portrayal of the times, but this is a science fantasy as and not just a historical novels.
It has a feminist take on the narrative, cantering around a the old pagan religion of the earth mother goddess Auret, existing alongside and in competition with Christianity reminiscent of the The Mists of Avalon (Mists of Avalon 1) and Rosalind Miles Guinevere series.
It is filled with fantasy creations, such as mythical war creatures called Greylixes , elementals and much sorcery. The central characters in the novel are a seer and a pagan priestess who is also Queen Anne's favoured lady in waiting
A parallel universe exists here linking us with a student in the present day obsessed with Richard III, and who engages with the ghosts of the characters and whose world is linked to theirs in a time warp.
You would have to have an affinity for fantasy to enjoy this.
I found the discussion of the future of Richard's image by the central character a bit tedious and didnt like the way in which the ending presented Richard having won the battle and survived in an alternate reality,
But Warrington writes beautifully and is a master word smith.
