Summary

Fourteenth-century Scotland suffers under the heel of England's King Edward, and James Douglas refuses to submit to the conqueror. As he wages a scorched-earth guerrilla war to drive out the invader and reclaim his birthright, Edward brings a vast army to crush the Scots. In the midst of the brutal war, even the woman James loves is threatened by his implacable duty.  

A man caught in the clash of two nations rushes to his destiny in this novel of passion, loyalty, cunning, and ruthlessness. The conflict reaches a bloody crescendo as the Scots and English cross swords in a reckoning that will determine Scotland's very survival.

On Them!

Excellent second instalment of the Black Douglas trilogy. Great writing, fabulous performance by Gary Furlong. Jamie Douglas faces trials and tribulations as well as the auld enemy.
