James, By the Grace of God: James V Trilogy 2

Nigel Tranter

7 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Historical fiction

The second in a trilogy of novels which chronicle the troubled 16th-century reign of James V of Scotland that began with The Riven Realm

The second in the James V trilogy, a sequel to The Riven Realm.
In the wake of the Battle of Flodden, Scotland was ruled in name only. The boy king, James V was at the mercy of ambitous rival factions, and beyond them the ever-watchful, looming presence of Henry VIII of England.
Escaping from the clutches of the power-hungry Earl of Angus, his most effective guides were to be two old friends, David Lindsay and David Beaton. But, impetuous and hot-blooded, James was more interested in wine and women than affairs of state, and his royal advisers faced a mighty task as they helped the king attain his regal status in a land full of treachery and danger.
