Resistance : The Bravehearts Chronicles Paperback
by Jack Whyte
Part of the Bravehearts Chronicles series
Born to a divided kingdom. Destined to unite it. AD 1286: The King of Scots is killed, leaving no heir.
Twelve-year-old Robert Bruce, heir to the great House of Bruce, comes of age amid the bitter rivalry of Scotland's most powerful nobles to claim the vacant throne. The boy is schooled in the arts of warfare and the manipulation of ruthless and violent men, but when the Scottish Crown is bestowed upon Bruce's greatest enemies, Robert travels with his family to England, swearing feudal loyalty to King Edward Plantagenet - known as 'Longshanks'. But Longshanks's increasing treachery and his brutal attempts to annexe Scotland see Robert turning renegade and returning to his home country.
The Battle of Bannockburn lies ahead and a legend is born. This is the story of one man's resistance, and the bravery of a country that would not yield.

Review by Glorybe1
It pains me to have to write this as I am a huge fan of Jack Whyte's work but this book I have found extremely boring! The historical research is as always impeccable but the way he has set it down is mind numbing!! It seems to be all political intrigue and very little action!! I am so disappointed as I have been waiting for this book for ages and now I have it, I very much doubt that I will read to the end! I feel as if I am drowning in historical facts (which is OK in many ways) But to make the story interesting you need things to happen to flesh it out, and in this case there is nothing!! I am so sorry, but I don't like this book at all!!
