Fiction, Adventure, Historical fiction

The third volume in the Master of Gray trilogy: a stirring tale of love and adventure, ambition, political intrigue and religious bigotry. It tells the story of Patrick, Master of Gray in the era of Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots, and his remarkable daughter Mary.

With the end of Elizabeth I's long reign in sight, Patrick, Master of Gray, is determined that James VI should succeed to the English throne.
Nothing can be allowed to stand in his way - not even his own daughter's happiness.
And so Mary Gray and her lover, Ludovick, Duke of Lennox, are to be caught up in a savage game of power politics, shaped by personal ambition and religious bigotry.
