A Kingdom’s Cost: A Novel of Scotland

By J.R. Tomlin

Kingdoms CostEighteen-year-old James Douglas can only watch, helpless, as the Scottish freedom fighter,  William Wallace, is hanged, drawn, and quartered.

Even under the heel of a brutal English conqueror, James’s blood drenched homeland may still have one hope for freedom, the rightful king of the Scots, Robert the Bruce.

James swears fealty to the man he believes can lead the fight against English tyranny

The Bruce is soon a fugitive, king in name and nothing more. Scotland is occupied, the Scottish resistance crushed.

The woman James loves is captured and imprisoned. Yet James believes their cause is not lost. With driving determination, he blazes a path in blood and violence, in cunning and ruthlessness as he wages a guerrilla war to restore Scotland’s freedom.

James knows he risks sharing Wallace’s fate, but what he truly fears is that he has become as merciless as the conqueror he fights.
