Fleance is the son of Scottish thane Banquo, friend and then victim of the ruthless Macbeth. Ten years have passed since his father’s brutal murder and still Fleance lives in hiding in the woods of northern England—his identity cloaked, his birthright denied. With sweet, beautiful Rosie by his side, he has settled into a simple life rather than one of power and prestige.
But every man has his price.
For Fleance is owed great things. The witches prophesied them to his father, and his father’s ghost now demands vengeance. A callous murderer must be brought to justice and there will be no peace for Scotland—or for Fleance—until that day. Sacrificing his life with Rosie, he must steal unobserved back into his homeland to avenge the past and fulfil his father’s dying wish.
The choices Fleance makes have the power to change his life, his country—and history.

Banquo was out with his ten year old son Fleance/Flea they are attacked and Banquo ends up being killed but Flea escapes. Banquo stays in touch with his son by haunting his dreams or appearing to him. Rosie is the love of Flea’s life and she is the daughter of his adopted parents who had found him starving when he was younger and took him in. I just am not terribly crazy about historical novels . This story was really slow in the beginning anyway and I just didn’t enjoy the story. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
