This is a well written, fast paced book that's full of adventure set in Scotland amongst warring highland clans. The MacGregors and Campbells, long-time rivals, are involved in a border war that suddenly escalates when Lord Gregor finds himself declared king when King Willaim and his only son tragically die on the same day. The Duke of Argyll, Domeric Campbell, vows to never bow the knee to his hated enemy and decides to try and take the crown for himself. Civil war ensues and many other Scottish clans join the conflict on both sides.
This book is for anyone interested in Scotland and her clans, enjoys medievel warfare, and plenty of bloody scenes in graphic battle.
The dialogue is highly enjoyable as well, and you'll find yourself speaking as if you are one of them.
