1286 AD. Scotland is in the grip of one of the worst winters in living memory. The king rides out from Edinburgh into the stormy dark. On the road he is murdered by his own squire, throwing the succession to the throne wide open. Civil war threatens as powerful Scottish families jostle for power, not knowing that Edward, King of England, has set his own plans in motion. Edward has a vision for his future kingdom – a vision sprung from the words of an ancient prophecy written in the time of King Arthur – that will change the face of Britain forever. But all is not destined to go Edward’s way. Through the ashes of war, through blood feuds and divided loyalties, a young man will rise to defy England’s greatest king. His name is Robert Bruce. And his story begins in INSURRECTION.
