Publisher's Summary

From earliest childhood, Robert Bruce has pursued his destiny, but the road has been a hard one. Behind him lie battles, murder, intrigue, defeat, and betrayal, and though he has at last achieved his ambition to wear the crown, he has not yet learned the true meaning of kingship.
In Kingdom, Robert must come through his greatest tests, both personal and political, to lead his people towards the encounter with the English at Bannockburn which will echo down the centuries.
Kingdom is the thrilling final installment in the internationally best-selling Insurrection trilogy.

Perfect end tote trilogy

Being Scottish I was aware of the history involved in this story, but Young really has a talent for bringing the characters and their stories alive. The way she conveys the struggles - both corporeal and emotional, moral and even religious, that Robert Bruce, his family and followers went through is captivating and illuminating all at once.

Not only does she do this for the main heroes, she successfully brings alive the characters of the English knights who are often left out of the story in historical accounts, and perfectly portrays the menacing and powerful King Edward, a legend in his own right.

The narration was fantastic, particularly in capturing the subtleties in the various accents of the myriad characters. Being from Ayrshire where many parts of the book takes place, the only point I would make (and this is nitpicking to the extreme) is that the narrator mispronounces Loudoun as 'Loodun' when it is pronounced 'Loud-un'.

Overall a fantastic book performed excellently. I would highly recommend the trilogy for those familiar with the history as well as those new to this amazing tale of Scottish legend, brought beautifully to life by both Young and McCardle.
