‘I despised men who accepted their fate. I shaped mine twenty times and had it broken twenty times in my hands’ 1547. After five years imprisonment and exile far from his homeland, Francis Crawford of Lymond – scholar, soldier, rebel, nobleman, outlaw – returns to Edinburgh.

But for many in an already divided Scotland, where conspiracies swarm around the infant Queen Mary, he is not welcome. Lymond is wanted for treason and murder, and he is accompanied by a band of killers and ruffians who will only bring further violence and strife. Is he back to foment rebellion? Does he seek revenge on those who banished him? Or has he returned to clear his name? No one but the enigmatic Lymond himself knows the truth – and no one will discover it until he is ready .
