In researching this book, I find that Nigel Tranter is considered one of the most outstanding British authors of historical novels. The description of this book from http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/ says:
It was almost inevitable that in the 15th century the new Scots royal House of Stewart would have to come to a reckoning with the great House of Douglas. The death of young Will Douglas's father plunged him into a world where might prevailed and the end justified the means.


A delightful book for those who enjoy stories of Scotish and English history.

Scottish history is incredibly interesting and this book certainly represented it well. It had everything: battles, heroes, foes, intrigue and action. The reason why it took me so long to read it is because I found the main character to be really annoying and rather naive and stupid. At first. Later in the book, I found myself rooting really hard for him ;) Really good book, though maybe not everyone's cup of tea.
