    A.D. 1262: In the dusty heat of French fields, knights battle for supremacy in a fierce tournament. At its violent heart is Edward of England, who leads his men under the banner of the dragon, a potent reference to the legendary King Arthur. As heir to the throne, Edward has a vision for his future kingdom - a vision sprung from the words of an ancient prophecy written in the time of Arthur himself - that will change the face of Britain forever. A.D. 1286: Scotland is in the grip of the worst winter in living memory.....

    Excellent history

    I have read Robyn Young's series on the Templars, with rather mixed feelings, as she can be very wordy, so I thought I would try her new novel as a ta..Show More »

    'Born to a line of Kings he will not bow to a conqueror.' King Edward of England marches on Scotland like an avenging tide. One man alone can thwart his ambition to rule all of Britain. Robert Bruce's veins run with the blood of kings, and he burns to fulfil his family's claim to the throne of Scotland. But on the run through the wilds of Ireland, hunted by a relentless assassin, Robert seems a long way from achieving his destiny. And there are other eyes on Scotland's crown, and old enemies gather against him.

    Great book and Trilogy

    From earliest childhood, Robert Bruce has pursued his destiny, but the road has been a hard one. Behind him lie battles, murder, intrigue, defeat, and betrayal, and though he has at last achieved his ambition to wear the crown, he has not yet learned the true meaning of kingship. In Kingdom, Robert must come through his greatest tests, both personal and political, to lead his people towards the encounter with the English at Bannockburn which will echo down the centuries.

    Great story, well read.

    Narrator does a great job, always great to hear a good accent done well.

    Pretty true to history too, if my research is any good!
