Product description

Product Description

Fleance is the son of Scottish thane Banquo, friend and then victim of the ruthless Macbeth. Ten years have passed since his father’s brutal murder and still Fleance lives in hiding in the woods of northern England—his identity cloaked, his birthright denied. With sweet, beautiful Rosie by his side, he has settled into a simple life rather than one of power and prestige.

But every man has his price.

For Fleance is owed great things. The witches prophesied them to his father, and his father’s ghost now demands vengeance. A callous murderer must be brought to justice and there will be no peace for Scotland—or for Fleance—until that day. Sacrificing his life with Rosie, he must steal unobserved back into his homeland to avenge the past and fulfil his father’s dying wish.

The choices Fleance makes have the power to change his life, his country—and history.

Revised edition: This edition of Banquo's Son includes editorial revisions.

Scotland seems to throw up legendary heroes. After studying Macbeth at school, (many decades ago), it was good to be reminded of the tale and taken a few years forward as the next generation battled with honour, love, coincidence, setbacks and the three witches. Kept me interested throughout.

Thought initially I'd bought a soppy Mills & Boon, but ploughed on and then really began to enjoy this book, which became engaging, intriguing and a little different. Characterisation is good, pace is good, and unexpected twist near the end a good eye opener. Recommended to any reader who likes action, intrigue and a good plot.

As I had never read this author before did not know what to expect. Found it a most enjoyable read as it mentioned a lot of history that I was taught at school in the UK

3.0 out of 5 stars The story moves along with good pace and the scenes set work well - though ... 26 October 2015
By M. Paterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ms Roxborogh, in the preface, has written that she started this novel from the point where Shakespeare left off - and indeed has "extended" Scottish history even more than the Bard - the implication being that MacBeth ruled for only one year whereas historians record it as 17 years - as well as recording that he was far from a tyrant (by the lights of his day) and ruled well. Nor did MacBeth murder Duncan 1, but killed him in open battle (quite a legitimate manner to gain a crown in 1040 - or 1066 for that matter) and he had a bloodline claim to the throne as well.

None-the-less - historical adjustments aside (and it IS a novel after all), the author has written an entertaining tale. Character development is logical if lightly crafted, but consistent with the envisaged people and there has been no attempt at false-voicing (by that I mean attempting to write as if it was 11th Century), but in clear modern English - for modern readers. The story moves along with good pace and the scenes set work well - though the battle scenes are thin and unrealistic. No trauma there for younger readers - indeed this book strikes me as for an early teenage readership.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a nice average read with an average storyline 25 October 2015
By Steven Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was okay. I wasn't blown away with the story itself but nor was it hard to keep reading it. Just a nice average read with an average storyline. I do like books that have a smattering of history in the storyline (which this did) but it just gets an average pass from me.

Haven't finished and waiting for Fleance to pick a bride. Too much time spent on mooning about Rosie. thought it was a good story integrating characters from time of Macbeth
