Dark Lord is book two in the Dark Birthright Saga. It opens less than six months later, with your favorite characters. Set during a time of political and religious strife, it features action, magic, romance, and politics. It's 1637 in Scotland. Dughall is settling into his new role when the King imposes an Anglican liturgy book on the Scottish church. Protests and riots plague the realm, forcing lords and commoners to take a stand. Dughall and Gilbert are placed in precarious positions, torn between loyalty to the crown, their families, and zealous subjects. To complicate matters, Dughall claims the sword of Red Conan and inherits the curse that comes with it. Challenged by real and supernatural enemies, he must fight to continue his line. Conflicts pit brother against brother and father against son. The National Covenant is signed and war breaks out. Tempers run hot and actions are rash. To maintain order, one brother must take Blackheart's place. Which raises the question... Who shall become the Dark Lord? (The author recommends that you read book one. It lays the groundwork for this novel.)
