WAR WILL MAKE HIM A MAN. DESTINY WILL MAKE HIM KING. THESE ARE DAYS OF WAR. The King of Scotland is dead. The nobles fight over the succession, unaware that King Edward of England has plans of his own. For years, Edward has nurtured a fierce vision of conquest, inspired by the words of an ancient prophecy, that will change the face of Britain. In this divided land, a boy grows to manhood, in a family torn apart by ambition and betrayal. His path will never be smooth - he will serve his enemy and betray his friend before he finds himself. But destiny is waiting to claim him. His name is Robert the Bruce. And his story begins in Insurrection.
About the author
Robyn Young was born in Oxford and grew up in the Midlands and Devon. She has a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Sussex and lives and writes in Brighton full-time. Her first novel, BRETHREN, was the bestselling hardback debut novel of 2006, with the paperback also going straight into the top ten bestseller list. Two more bestsellers followed, CRUSADE and REQUIEM, completing the Brethren trilogy, which has now sold over a million copies and been translated into nineteen languages.

I realised there was no way this character could play a cameo role in another man's story. His tale was too powerful, too intricate and too good to be cut down and boxed to fit.'
