Tranter continues the story of Scot land's King James V begun in his novel The Riven Realm ( LJ 4/1/85). James, whose father, James IV, died when he was a baby, is 12 years old when this tale begins. For the warring nobles, control of the boy-king is a much sought after prize. Still, one man, Da vid Lindsay, remains faithful to his king and seeks to protect him from those who would keep him prisoner while rul ing in his name.
