This is identical to the book called "Robert The Bruce" also by Jack Whyte. If you are confused, they are both the second Whyte's The Guardians series.

Love all his previous titles. Maybe I was expecting too much? Wanted more details of the political intrigue. This one ends just as he becomes "renegade".

Just Finished it...WOW!I have read all of Jack Whytes books now, and bi-god he is an excellent writer! this latest one included in his retinue of excellence!

He is the only author that can consistently bring tears to my eyes!!!!His light uses of descriptive text is succinct and pithy...I get bored easily with too much description and this was a perfect balance in my humble opinion!And the plot, was as tantalizing as it was political...but speaks more to the different faces we all were whether at work or at home, or by ourselves...it is a beautiful analogy of anywhere/anytime on earth, that just happens to be based (closely I might add) to historical facts.

I am impressed, inspired, and outright delighted by the master-full storytelling Mr.Whyte produces herein...I too what with impatient bated breath at the next and conclusive chapter in this series!

ENJOY

Excellent follow-up to the Forest Laird. Highly recommend reading this book about Robert Bruce. Looking forward to the third book in the series.
