Hi, this is Emma from the Instagram account @thebookshelfofachampagnechild !
I was so excited when I received ‘Wonders Will Never Cease‘ by Robert Irwin from Skyhorse Publishing, and given the opportunity to have a Q&A with the author.
This book is a historical account of the War of Roses, with a twist of magic! I started the book not knowing very much about this time period, and now that I am done – I have a new area of interest I want to further research and read more about. The story is told from the point of view of Anthony Woodville, Lord of Scales brother to, King Edward IV’s queen, Elizabeth Woodville. Anthony is killed in battle at the beginning of the book, and is resurrected to fulfill his destiny in the War of Roses. Anthony, son of Jacquetta – descendent of the fairy Melusine, journeys along through this story experiencing events that seem too strange to be true; he witnesses the King Arthur Grail ceremony, he’s visited by dead men, hears stories of goblins, and is told his future.
I loved reading this book, it was a great escape from reality, despite it being rooted in history. I was really excited to pick up this book every night and find out where the story would go. I definitely recommend this book, especially to fantasy lovers and history buffs.
