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)
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.See all Product description

Taking Bruce from childhood to his final destination played on the sense of family legecy and obsession. There is also an understanding on how the common man effected the outcome of the conflict and shaped the man and King Bruce was to become.
The only issues that held me back in giving a higher rating were some of the character archs especially Alexander Seton. I can not understand why he was killed off when the real man lived and prospered under Bruce's rule. The ending to me finished abruptly. As it started with his childhood maybe ending with his last days would have made it complete fir me.
There were a couple of historical mistakes the main one being the misconception over the three lions. Which are in fact heraldic leopards, a bit of research would have confirmed this.
