Giveaway: Win a copy of War of the Roses: Stormbird by Conn Iggulden

I was recently sent a copy of War of the Roses: Stormbird by Conn Iggulden to review but as I'm not in a position to review it as I've currently got a backlog I'm trying to reduce, the lovely Francesca at Penguin has said it's OK if I offer it as a giveaway prize to one of you lovely peeps instead. 

King Henry V - the great Lion of England - is long dead.

In 1437, after years of regency, the pious and gentle Henry VI, the Lamb, comes of age and accedes to the English throne. His poor health and frailty of mind render him a weakling king - Henry depends on his closest men, Spymaster Derry Brewer and William de la Pole, Duke of Suffolk, to run his kingdom.

Yet there are those, such as the Plantagenet Richard, Duke of York, who believe England must be led by a strong king if she is to survive. With England's territories in France under threat, and rumours of revolt at home, fears grow that Henry and his advisers will see the country slide into ruin. With a secret deal struck for Henry to marry a young French noblewoman, Margaret of Anjou, those fears become all too real.

As storm clouds gather over England, King Henry and his supporters find themselves besieged abroad and at home. Who, or what, can save the kingdom before it is too late?

To enter simply follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter form below.  Entries will close on 10th October when the winner will be selected and contacted for postal address to enable me to send you your copy of the book.  Sorry as this is a heavy hardback I am going to have to restrict this to UK only.
