King Robert de Bruce (Earl of Carrick) & Robert de Bruce (Earl of Carrick, Lord of Annandale, King of the Scots, oldest brother) rage war against & King Edward Longshanks (England) others to keep Scotland intact with the invading hordes.
James is his true follower & upholds his cause as best he can.
The brutal battles: of Glen Trool, of Greyfriar, of Turnberry, of Galloway, & of Brodick Castle, just to name a few are all gore, bloody & horror deluxe.
King Edward I (England) took James’ father prisoner & of course he is placed in the Tower of London.
From there all hope is lost for Scotland at the Battle of Methven.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written historical fiction book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great 13th. Century medieval movie, animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

If you are a fan of Scotland's history, with William Wallace, The Bruce, The Black Douglas, etc., than I 100% recommend this book (and series) to you. In fact, I recommend all of J.R. Tomlin's novels, as I am a huge historical fiction fan, and he does a fantastic job of bringing real people, who died long ago, back to life for the reader. He is definitely one of my top 10 favorite authors for this genre. A solid five out of five star rating from me!
The specific details about much of the Scottish Wars for Independence have been lost to time but Tomlin deftly weaves what is known into his story. He brings Robert Bruce and Jamie Douglas to life as men OF their times. This is SO important in a historical novel. Nothing takes you out of a book more that having modern thoughts or speech come from the characters. Tomlin does well in keeping the characters in their times.
Nothing can say more than the fact that I immediately bought the next book.
Over all, I would recommend this to those who appreciate a good battle scene and strong, if not cliche, heroes.
