Product Description

On the 700th anniversary of a pivotal event in Scottish history comes the conclusion of Robyn Young’s epic trilogy about Robert the Bruce, one of history’s greatest rebels.

Robert has achieved his great ambition to be crowned King of Scotland, but in so doing has provoked the wrath of Edward of England. Raising the feared dragon banner, the English king marches north, determined to recapture the kingdom.

But the English are not Robert's only enemies. By murdering his great rival, John Comyn, he has split the kingdom apart and with his forces depleted and many of his own countrymen turned against him, Robert is forced to flee into the wilderness. He has a crown, but no country, the will to lead, but no real authority.

The road before him is all but impossible, with treachery and heartbreak at every turn, but Robert must try slowly, surely, to regain the military advantage and the respect of a nation.

Fighting from hidden strongholds and the Western Isles, with the support of a few brave men and the alluring noblewoman, Christiana, Robert drives towards the place where he will meet Edward II and decide the future of Scotland, in an epic confrontation near the village of Bannockburn.

More About the Author

Robyn Young was born in Oxford and grew up in the Midlands and a fishing village in Devon, during which time she won awards for poetry and edited a regular page in a regional newspaper. After hitchhiking to Brighton at 19, she worked as a festival organiser, a music promoter and a financial advisor. She wrote two novels before gaining a Masters in Creative Writing at the University of Sussex.

Her first published novel, BRETHREN, went straight into the Sunday Times top ten, where it remained for five weeks, becoming the bestselling hardback debut of the year. It entered the New York Times top twenty on publication in the US and was named book of the year by German newspaper Bild. Her second novel, CRUSADE, reached number 2 and REQUIEM completed the trilogy. In 2007, Robyn was named one of Waterstone's twenty-five 'authors of the future', judged by a panel of one hundred industry insiders who were asked to nominate the authors they believed would contribute the greatest body of work over the next quarter century.

The inspiration for Robyn's new bestselling trilogy, which began in 2010 with INSURRECTION and continued in 2012 with RENEGADE, was inspired by a research trip to Scotland and is based on the life of Robert Bruce. The third novel, KINGDOM, will be published in 2014 in the month of the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.

Alongside writing novels, Robyn has collaborated on a WWII screenplay. Her novels have been published in 22 countries in 19 languages and together have sold almost 2 million copies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner from the Author 10 July 2014
By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
It doesn't seem to be two minutes since I was reading Robyn Young's first novel, Brethren (2006), the first book in the Brethren trilogy and now I have just read Kingdom, the third book in the Insurrection trilogy and an excellent read it was. The author has the ability to tell a compelling tale and the pages literally fly by. This book is the conclusion of the story of Robert the Bruce, a name from the history books that has often seemed maligned, but if the author's research is to be believed, and I have no reason to doubt that it should be, Robert even managed, through his lack of good sense, to alienate many of his own countrymen.

In this the final part of the trilogy Robert has finally achieved his dream of becoming King of Scotland but by doing so has invoked the wrath of the English King Edward II, who marches North with the intention of regaining the kingdom. Robert has done little or nothing to unite his kingdom, in fact quite the opposite and has to plan his battle strategy from a position of weakness, in hiding and a virtual outlaw, his authority in shreds. Not the ideal situation for a commander planning his strategy for one of the most famous conflicts on British soil, the battle of Bannockburn. Most history buffs will know how that one ended. However in this case knowing the eventual winner in no way spoils the story.

I always enjoy the author's books and this one was no different. There was plenty of action throughout and the author is a master of weaving fact and fiction together, so that the reader loses track of where one starts and the other ends, and is simply lost in the story. Anyone who enjoys reading good historical fiction cannot help but enjoy this latest offering from Robyn Young.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very impressive masterpiece! 25 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This great book is the 3rd volume of the Insurrection trilogy and it's the conclusion of the life of Robert Bruce, King of Scotland.
It contains the period from AD 1306 until AD 1314 where at the battle of Bannockburn Bruce's fate was finally sealed after his victory over the English of King Edward II.
The book was probably published in June in the year 2014, which is the month and year of the 700th anniversary of that great Battle of Bannockburn and so together they make a terrific combination.
It's a most convincing and entertaining book with great storytelling by Robyn Young, and it's a book where the characters come all vividly to life, and where the atmosphere of those hard and eventful times comes off the pages in a most engaging way.
This wonderful book has a thrilling start, a most interesting centrepiece, and a fantastic conclusion.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone because it's a very impressive masterpiece!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 21 July 2014
By Kate TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The year is 1306 - Robert Bruce is finally crowned King of Scotland, his rivals to the throne murdered or in retreat. But the triumph is shortlived, the prophecy as fragile as ever, as Sir Aymer de Valence, earl of Pembroke and cousin to Edward I of England, heads northwards, taking advantage of all those with an axe to grind against Robert, forcing the rebel king to the north-western edges of this unhappy kingdom. So begins eight long years of tug of war between Robert and the English for control of Scotland, culminating in Bruce's great victory at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.

Nothing about this is straightforward, though. Bruce has to fight tooth and nail to hold his men together, to inspire them to keep on fighting, to bargain ruthlessly with the mercenaries and disinherited, to brave the greatest hardships and personal dangers and, most horrible of all, to endure the loss of his wife, daughter and sisters, captured by Edward and treated with great cruelty - his daughter and sister caged like animals.

Kingdom completes Robyn Young's Insurrection trilogy - three meticulously researched, passionately intense novels that bring to life the figure of Robert Bruce with all his strengths, weaknesses and drive. There is no doubt that Robert had his flaws, his repeated switching of sides in the previous novel Renegade made him a difficult character to like. He is also not easy to love, just look at his wife, brothers and father. But Robert Bruce is a man with a destiny and in this world in which legend and prophecy are vital, if only as inspiration to others, he cannot turn back.

In Renegade I had a real problem with Robert. I thought him a dishonourable man. I liked him no more than I did Edward I.

Great read as I would have expected after reading the first two books in this trilogy and the brethren trilogy. Robyn Young manages weave a great level of detail into the characters and embellished the historical facts and timelines beautifully to create a story that had me up into the wee hours! I hope she will turn her attention to a Welsh historical hero next .....maybe Llewelyn Ap Gruffydd!
