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.

Product Description

Review

With Robyn Young's meticulously researched Kingdom one suspects this might be more faithful to the records than many a supposedly factual account . . . This is not fiction for the fainthearted. It teems with characters and the intricacies of the feuding, treacherous English court and Scottish nobility . . . It is compelling, the author's devotion to her subject making the story blaze with passion. As one closes this book it is hard to believe these players have been dust for 700 years or more. (Herald Scotland)

This trilogy is an excellent read. Young follows the manifestations of Bruce's struggle for power down to the most minute detail, culminating in glory and victory. (Scots Magazine)

Book Description

Where Game of Thrones sets kingdoms at war within a fantasy world, the Insurrection trilogy is based on the breath-taking true story of Robert the Bruce's battle to become king.

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.

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.

I've read all of Robyn Young`s books and she just goes from strength to strength. While the Brethren Trilogy improved massively after a fairly weak first book the Insurrection series has been consistently excellent to a degree that they,in my opinion,are superior to any of Bernard Cornwell's books.I say that not to knock Mr Cornwell,I'm a long-standing fan of his work,but to underline just how good Ms Young has become in a very short space of time.
The Insurrection Trilogy bravely features mostly historical lead figures rather than the Brethren series,Cornwell etc more usual (in the realms of historical fiction) style of placing the hero into a historical context and famous names of the day making pretty much cameo appearances. This of course means much more research and limitations as to plot line and what the characters can say and do or hordes of pedants would joyfully just rip the thing to shreds. There are parts in the series that stretch things a bit but the bottom line is that it's a work of fiction based on historical truth and has to entertain as well as inform.
Having read (factual) books about Bruce before reading the Trilogy and I was slightly worried that the truth about a rather complex,selfish and deeply flawed person might be sugar-coated for the consumption of the masses.I needn't have worried,Robyn Young ably informs us of the ever shifting loyalties and less savoury sides of the characters on all sides of the conflict and leads the reader gently through the ever-changing and labyrinthine politics,alliances and loyalties of the time. Even Bruce's dog changes sides at one point,albeit unwillingly ,but he's not alone in that respect .
