This book had me riveted from start to finish!  I've read everything Jack Whyte has written, and this was truly an exceptional effort !  Robert the Bruce came alive for me, and his role in Scottish history had never been made more clear.  The book and characters resonated with me long after I had finished reading.  I hope a sequel is in  the works, as the adult Robert Bruce will be even more compelling.  This is a great read!

The first (I hope) in a series of historical novels detailing the life of Robert Bruce, who created a united Scotland by defying the desires of Edward "Longshanks" of England.  This novel covers the first part of The Bruce's life fromchildhood, until his decision to join in the struggle for an independent Scottish kingdom.  The politics of the period are complex and confusing, but the explanations are clear.  The characters, all of whom actually lived, are drawn with care and detail; which is a difficult task since the events Whyte chronicles are 800 years in the past. Historical fiction too often veers more into imagination that cleaving to facts.  Although obviously conversations are the product of Whyte's imagination, the bare bones of historical fact and personages are honored.  I loved reading this and hope that I have the opportunity to read the rest of Robert Bruce's story.

Although I am a fan of Jack Whyte's work I found this book to be without a meaningful story line and internally inconsistent Save your money and your time
