Synopsis

To fulfill his destiny, first he must swear allegiance to his enemy ...King Edward of England marches on Scotland, inspired by an Arthurian prophecy to unite the British Isles under one crown. Only one man stands in his way. Robert Bruce is determined to claim the throne of Scotland. But, on the run and hunted by a relentless assassin, his ambition appears far from being realised. And there are other families who hunger for the crown, old rivals gathering against him. Robert was always prepared to die on the battlefield, but in this deadly game of conquest, power and treachery, what else must he sacrifice to keep his hopes alive? RENEGADE is a dazzling story of conspiracy and divided loyalties, and a superb portrait of the medieval world.

Author's Biography

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. The inspiration for Robyn's new trilogy, which began with INSURRECTION and continues in RENEGADE, grew out of an earlier research trip to Scotland. Robyn explains: 'Day by day, out of the pages of history and the wild landscape, one figure came striding, larger, clearer than all the others - Robert the Bruce. He swept me off my feet and carried me into a story of bitter family feuds, two civil wars and the struggle for the crown. 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.'
