The Honor Due a King is the final bittersweet installment of N Gemini Sasson's The Bruce Trilogy. After defeating England, Scotland is finally free. Robert is now able to be the King he dreamed of being. With his family returned to his side, he begins to rebuild Scotland. But there are problems plaguing Robert that can't be solved on a battlefield. Elizabeth shirks from Robert, and Marjorie is in love with someone other than her betrothed. Will the Scottish Crown ever be rid of its problems? As one of Scotland's premier knights, James must obey and serve his king. But what if his heart leads him in other directions?After losing his love and his will to live, James throws himself into the service of Scotland and her king. But will James ever be free of the soldier's life?England's peace with Scotland brought no peace for Edward II and his beloved one, Hugh Despenser. The wolves seem to be circling his heels, with the pack being led by the infamous she-wolf, Isabella. As his life unravels, Edward tries to protect not only himself, but Hugh, while bringing revenge on the heads' of his enemies. This final book takes the heartbreak and tragedy from books one and two and delivers a haunting conclusion. Though the characters are older and wiser, they are all feeling the effect of their arduous battles. While I loved the maturity of all three narrators, I in particularly fell in love with James. Loyal to the end, he makes a perfect anti-hero.Within the first few pages of this wonderful book, I was balling. The emotionally charged reunion will bring even the toughest of hearts to tears. Like the first two books, this book is wonderfully written, with descriptive prose and an eye for historical detail. The fever pitch action in book two slows, but the book is still fast paced. I loved not only the book, but the series. I plan on purchasing the last two books in the series in paperback so I can proudly display these books on my shelves!

Wow. I rarely like stories that have multiple characters with sub-stories but as they say, there are exceptions to every rule. Not only could each character, whether major or minor, be there own stand alone book, but the author was able to make each a GIANT among men. If you enjoyed Braveheart the movie, you will enjoy this as much or probably more. The author is a fantastic cook, using the proper amount and type of words to create a mental feast for the reader. Of the thousands of good books Ive read, of the top ten percent of those, this book rises to the top ONE percent of the best. The author will be on my all time favorite and must-have-more list!

I became very involved with the protagonists of this trilogy in the course of reading the first and second books: The Crown in the Heather and Worth Dying For. Each character, from Robert the Bruce to his arch enemy, Edward the Second, began as strangers to me but with each chapter I read, with each book I opened, they were further polished, fleshed out and deepened until I could almost see them before me, see their expressions as well as I could dip into their hearts and minds. I fell a little in love with, or perhaps it was a kind of hero worship state, with James Douglas. In The Honor Due a King, James's story continues, as does Robert's, and the stories of the people that surround them. The Honor Due a King steps away from battles and delves far more deeply into the personal lives of our champions. This is a book of heart, mind, romance, tragedy and love. It's a triumphant, yet sad conclusion; by that I mean that when you become so connected to a story and its characters, you really don't want it to end.
