Scotland, 1055, and the kingdom is on the verge of collapse. There is rebellion in the south, a mysterious illness sweeps the land and some say that dark, supernatural powers are responsible.
The young King Fleance and his wife Rachel await the birth of their first child, but the queen is very ill and rumours fly that the royal family is cursed. Fleance and Rachel must try to hold the realm together in the face of treachery and disease. Only a few loyal friends can be trusted - including the Thane of Lochaber and his wife Rosie, whose very presence stirs up painful memories for Fleance.
Trouble is brewing - and not all who participate in the struggle will survive.
Birthright is the heart-stopping conclusion to T. K. Roxborogh's epic A Crown of Blood and Honour Trilogy
