    A Kingdom’s Cost: A Historical Novel of Scotland (The Black Douglas Trilogy Book 1)

    Young James Douglas can only watch, helpless, as the Scottish freedom fighter, William Wallace, is hanged, drawn, and quartered. Even under the heel of a brutal English conqueror, Scotland may still have one hope for freedom, their rightful king, Robert the Bruce. James swears fealty to the man he believes can lead the fight against English tyranny. The Bruce is soon a fugitive, king in name and nothing more. The woman James loves is captured and imprisoned. Scotland is occupied. Scottish resistance is crushed. Yet James believes their cause is not lost. With driving determination, he blazes a path in blood and violence, in cunning and ruthlessness as he wages a guerrilla war to restore Scotland’s freedom. James knows he risks sharing Wallace’s fate, but what he truly fears is that he has become as merciless as the conqueror he fights. A Kingdom’s Cost is a gripping adventure that gives life to a defining era of Scotland’s history. Read more
