An action-packed adventure kicking off the Black Douglass series.
Scotland is under the heel of a brutal English conqueror. James Douglas, a dispossessed young nobleman, is tied to the conquered land by birth and blood—but questions who can fight for their suffering kingdom. But battle is his destiny, and when Robert the Bruce takes the crown, James throws his lot in with the man he believes can lead the fight against English tyranny.
But disaster follows. The Bruce is soon a fugitive. Scottish resistance crushed. The woman James loves is captured and imprisoned. 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.
A Kingdom’s Cost is a gripping adventure that gives breathtaking life to the most important era of Scotland’s history.
