Product Description

(THE BRUCE TRILOGY: BOOK II)

One day. One battle. Bannockburn, 1314.

The rise of Robert the Bruce. The vengefulness of James Douglas. And the ruin of Edward II.

Robert the Bruce has known nothing but hardship since seizing Scotland's crown. Parted from his wife and daughter and forced to flee through the Highland wilderness, he struggles to unite a kingdom divided by centuries old blood feuds. The price, however, must be paid in lives and honor.

Falling to temptation, Robert's only means of redemption―and to one day win his wife Elizabeth back―is to forgive those who have wronged him. One by one, Robert must win back Scotland's clans and castles. The one man who can help him purge the land of English tyranny is the cunning young nobleman, James 'the Black' Douglas, who seeks vengeance on those who took both his inheritance and his father's life.

With the death of Longshanks, Edward II ascends to the throne of England. His first act as king is to recall the banished Piers Gaveston. Too soon, Edward learns that he cannot protect the one he loves most and still preserve his own life and crown. To those who demand the ultimate sacrifice, he must relinquish all power. To have his revenge, he must do what his father never believed him capable of―defeat Robert the Bruce on the field of battle.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 19 Feb 2013

I loved all 3 books in this trilogy, they must be read in sequence. Although English to the bone I felt a real affinity with Robert and James, and came to dislike our King Edward and wished him dead from the start. These books have helped me to understand Scotlands history better than ever.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Scotsmans viewpoint part 2 9 Feb 2012
By Grampar
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In my review of the first book I was somewhat kinder than I am going to be now. TWADDLE is my first remark. Yes it is fiction and yes the author is an American therefore the spelling naturally follows that countrys method however sore on the eyes of Scottish or other U.K. readers it is. Howsoever using American words as if they were used as a common tongue in 14th Century British Isles is more than sore to the eyes-it is downright offensive. For example; we are all familiar with the American word, rooster, but in English, as spoken in the British Isles, then as today the word is COCK or cockerel for a young cock. I cannot see Bruces men sitting at a meal, or perhaps I should say, vitals, and refering to cocks as roosters! The authors research is WAY OUT. The Bruce did not ride a pony into battle. He was a King and a Knight and as such he rode a warhorse able to carry an heavy armourcladded rider. This book reads more like a gay love story between Edward 2nd and his lover Piers Gaveston and if it is about the Bruce why so many many chapters devoted to The English King and his domestic problems?
All in all I have never read such drivle about a period in my Countrys history that put Scotland on the political map of Europe and in especial the Vatican whose power over-rode many a nations aspirations. I mentioned earlier that the authors research was way out and now I will point out the biggest mistake and dreadful backhanded insult to the Bruce. The battle of Bannockburn which defined Scottish Nationality and was pivotal in our Wars of Independence, ( something an American should never forget)is so poorly described that it is obvious that there was no hard research done on the Battle and one incident shows how this is the case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Dying For ? - Almost! 11 Mar 2011
By Delia
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book, part of the Robert Bruce trilogy. The characters were fascinating, the plot exiting and the setting wonderfully evoked. It was pure escapism and enjoyable on that level, but the characters stayed with me. As soon as i had finished it I was driven to do some research on this period in Scottish history. Please make book three available for Kindle! I haven't managed to find it yet....
