Arguably that's the role of historical fiction: to bring a bygone age to life, and to help us to see what are now dry historical figures as the living, breathing people they once were. Volume eight marks the start of Act Two. We open directly following Henry's death — Prince Edward's widow Anne is fully under the power of her sister Isabelle, who seems torn between protecting the Neville family fortunes and simply controlling her disappointing sibling.

Edward of York is on the throne, and he wants to reward his brother Richard for his valorous acts, which apparently include killing Henry. To this end, he offers Anne in marriage, and surprisingly Richard accepts. As the chapter unfolds, however, we can guess that this is a combination of his final kind acts as the person he once was saving Anne and his new total devotion to the House of York, as it will bring Anne's dowry and estates under their control.
At this point the story skips ahead in time eight-odd years judging by the age of Princess Elizabeth and we see what time has wrought: Anne is miserable, she and Richard have a son, Edward, who is almost certainly not Richard's, George is a drunk, and Edward has lapsed into hedonism. Things aren't bad per se, but there are plenty of cracks for people to pry open. Naturally Buckingham is one of those men. He's still keen on Richard becoming king, and he doesn't see Richard's familial devotion as being contrary to his own goal.
The other, more ominous, person trying to tear things apart is a woman named Jane, a witch who had disguised herself as Isabelle's lady's maid in order to catch the eye of the king. She probably wouldn't have needed any of her witchy ways to do it, in all honesty, but Kanno uses Jane to demonstrate the attitudes towards witches in the fifteenth century while also highlighting Edward's later profligacy. The fact that no one is entirely certain what he died of is also almost certainly part of what Kanno's working with. Richard's intersex nature is thought to be the result of demonic interference in his birth, and the idea of curses and pacts leading to their efficacy, with the commensurate price to be paid, is a major factor as the story moves towards George of York's historical fate.
The implication is that Richard cannot escape her shadow, with Jane playing a similar role to Joan, but a much more active and wide-reaching one: Joan was a ghost, visible only to Richard, but Jane is a flesh-and-blood woman with access to the king and pharmacological skills to maintain that access.

Perhaps if Richard had not driven off his own personal demon, he would not now be trying to remove his brother's much more physical one. Although Jane is not present in the historical record, Kanno continues to do a good job of blending history and Shakespeare to create a narrative that is simultaneously recognizable and new. Richard's discomfort with his body is still a major source of the character's angst, and we can see how he can be manipulated through it, with only Catesby being his safe person — or at least, the only person he cannot run off.
This may build into a very tense situation with Buckingham, who glimpsed Richard's feminine features during a Jane-induced orgy in the throne room, which will further isolate Richard. The loss of Henry is the single biggest blow that Richard has suffered, and its repercussions continue to be felt across the story. If there's anything unquestionably worth paying attention to, it's that, because when Kanno introduces the character of James Tyrell, the man who confessed to killing the Princes in the Tower at Richard III's behest, she's clearly once again working to unbalance Richard's increasingly precarious hold on himself.
Requiem of the Rose King is fascinating. Games traditionally last around minutes for me, and as most games tend to come down to the final 10 cards, it often calls for an immediate rematch. I was a fan of this game when I first discovered it almost 20 years ago, and it still holds its appeal to me in its simple rules and elegant game play.
As a two player game, the abstract nature of the game made it just acceptable for me; playing as a partnership made for a much more interesting experience. Great review.
