In Reay Tannahill’s The Seventh Son Richard is neither of these extremes; instead he is a clever brave hardnosed Renaissance prince who knows that in the game of thrones you win or you die I totally stole that l

How nice to have a novel with a realistic well rounded Richard instead of the pure and saintly one we re always finding in the latest and cough greatest historical novels Tannahill begins her novel in 1471 as Richard is planning to marry Anne Neville and recounts his life until that fateful day at Bosworth Most of this is known history and enough reviewers have recounted what s covered in the book I needn t rehash it again As noted earlier what I most enjoyed was the life like Richard although depicted as an honorable man he was still very much a man of his times and ruthless when he needed to be I really enjoyed how the relationship between Richard and Anne slowly developed during their marriage instead of the pure as the driven snow instantaneous true love we re always seeing these days Outside of Francis none of the other main players are as fully developed as you might find in some other novels on this period but at the same time you re not getting all black and white everyone has their shades of gray even Margaret Beaufort and Elizabeth Woodville a very refreshing change All in all I found this to be a very enjoyable read although Tannahill s dry wit and sarcasm may not appeal to all readers Still tops with me for books on Richard III is still Sharon Kay Penman s fabulous The Sunne in Splendour but it s always fun to read another author s take on the always enigmatic Richard and the mystery of the Princes in the Tower Four stars

I recently re read this I don t think it s the best novel about Richard but it s certainly a very interesting one Realistic and maybe even a tad cynicalIf you want lots of detail you won t find it here And if you reuire your Richard to be a plaster saint this is definitely a book to avoid On the other hand Tannahill goes where few Ricardian authors care to tread such as the episode where he rips off the old Countess of Oxford s landsApart from Richard the main characters are Anne Neville and Francis Lovel and these two appear to be the only ones who actually like let alone love the main man It rather plays down his popularity given how well he was thought of in the north In fact towards the end when Anne and Francis are basically lobbying him to back right off the accession you wonder who the hell is supporting the guy when these two aren t He really couldn t have taken the throne on his ownI suppose ultimately this novel falls into the grey legend part of the debate It s well written by an accomplished author and with the exception of the issue mentioned above I can t fault it plot wise But I am sure a lot of Ricardian readers won t like it

On finishing this I m left in such a delighted mood that I could go on happy dancing all day Because at long last I ve found my new favourite Wars of the Roses novel to place side by side to Sharon Kay Penman s The Sunne in Splendour on my personal altar of best ever Historical Fiction Fellow English history lovers know how hard it is to live up to the sky high standards for Ricardian fiction set up by Sharon s novel so this is uite the feat that Reay Tannahill has done it in my humble opinion That she achieved it covering only a fraction of the timeframe Penman did makes it even remarkable How did she acomplish this The reasons to me are very obvious characterisation characterisation and characterisationThose who read my review of Alianore Audley will perhaps recall that I pointed out one of my minor irritations has been that all fictional characterisations of Richard of Gloucester tend to stick to roughly the same humourless type independently from whether he s portrayed as good or bad or grey After this novel I feel compelled to say that I take it backThe Richard that Ms Tannahill portrays is surprisingly not devoid of a sense of humour Oh you won t find him cracking jokes and jesting happily with royals and stableboys alike like good old Ned but he sure can hold his ground when bantering flirting and making merry That was perhaps the greatest and most welcome surprise found in this novel A Richard III with a sense of humour Count me in as your fanBut it s not just that what this novel holds in store to recommend itself to potential readers Besides being less stiff Richard is shown as a honourable nobleman a loyal man a caring and protective friend and brother but also self seeking ambitious and in possession of a ruthless streak that won t hesitate to take swift and bloody action in his own name or in the name of the crown He s perhaps less good than in other novels I ve read and I ve read seven in a row but nonetheless he s still the type of person on whose side you ll end up if only because you know what his core self is truly likeTannahill s writing is amenable and without cracks in the plot walls I loved her unpretentious prose but than anything I loved how she weaves her story how she sets up scenes and her capacity to turn certain controversial events from the York Lancaster wars into either heroic or hilarious scenes The seizure of the lands of the Countess of Oxford is one such case Despite knowing that wasn t supposed to be funny in the real life history I couldn t stop chuckling all the while through the misadventures of Richard and Francis Lovell with the helpless old lady that was nearly too cunning for them all His marriage to Anne Neville is also portrayed as one of convenience that developed into an affectionate one due to their compatibility and companionable life together rather than as some grand all consuming passion that scorched England with its fire The portrayal of his brother Edward also ranks as my second favourite after Penman s for much the same reasons and even the black sheep of the York family George of Clarence elicited a sympathetic nod a time or two A very satisfying read in sum I m now firmly convinced that the perfect Ricardian novel would have Penman s storytelling and Tannahill s characterisation
