The Spider and the Stone: A Novel of Scotland's Black Douglas by Glen Craney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Craney brings Black Douglas to life in The Spider and the Stone. Brutal and epic in scope, this novel gives new insights into the personalities of the Scottish War for Independence. Douglas is a sympathetic character, a principled and aggressive man who must work to keep his wavering would-be king on the throne. Yet, must he sacrifice his love for Isabel to do so? It's a compelling read, one which will stick with you for a long time. Highly recommended.
