Publisher's Summary

In Scotland in 1477, in the international world of trade and commerce, ruin is the only reward for those who do not know the rules of the game.

Struggling to fend off his enemies' attempts to kill him, Nicholas rejoins the fledgling court of young King James the Third, and finds that the perilous family squabbles of James and his treacherous siblings are every bit as dangerous as the intrigue he has left behind...

Unforgettable!

I finished listening to this last book a few weeks ago and now realise that to listen, aided by an excellent narrator, is an amazing experience; I had thought I had 'read' the books but know now what I had missed!

Reading this series one book after the other takes over everything else and leaves you absolutely bereft. They are all wonderful.

If only The Lymond Chronicles had a narrator as fitting as the ones provided for this series I would buy them immediately.

Climax to wonderful series

Long, dense and intelligent historical fiction. The final book in an eight volume series this is not a stand-alone book. The reader needs to have watched the character of the protagonist grow and development over the earlier books to appreciate the depth and complexity of this one.
