One of history's most turbulent times comes to life in this adventure novel. 12-year-old Alex sets out on a quest to find his missing parents. An ambitious time-travel novel set in Scotland at the time of William Wallace, Death of a King explores the turbulence of the bloody late-13th century after King Alexander dies without an heir. The country is thrown into chaos and Alex must overcome many obstacles along his path. Full of humour, intrigue, bloodshed, battles and suspense, Death of a King is a rollicking read told by a major voice in historical fiction.
