Lords of Misrule: House of Stewart Trilogy 1

Nigel Tranter

7 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Historical fiction

The first volume in a great trilogy which charts the rise of the House of Stewart in 14th-century Scotland and their rivalry with the Douglas family.

In turbulent 14th century Scotland, the ruling House of Stewart was a house divided, beset by hatred and jealousy. Descendants of the Bruce's daughter, they only kept the throne by an astonishing genius for survival - or, as many said, the lick of the Devil.
Their rivals were the Douglases; and when the second Earl was slain in battle, the Stewarts were suspected of foul play.
When young Jamie Douglas vowed to avenge his master, he only had his wits, courage and integrity with which to challenge the most eminent and the most unscrupulous men in the kingdom. And while vengeance burned in his heart, he could not prevent his fatal attraction for the beautiful and spirited Stewart women - and one in particular.
This is the first volume in the Stewart trilogy.
