The Lion of Galloway: A Historical Novel of Scotland (Archibald the Grim Series Book 4) by J. R. Tomlin
Multi-genre, multi-volume, historical fiction author, J. R. Tomlin introduces us to her latest book about early Scotland, “The Lion of Galloway”:
An uneasy truce. A threat of rebellion. A knight’s loyalty is tested to the limit...
Scotland and England have signed a truce, but a peaceful life is not to be as Archibald Douglas faces threats from nobles rebelling against King David. Meanwhile, the old enemy, England, plots with Scots in Galloway to hang onto pieces of Scotland they still control. Archibald, faithful to his vow to the king, fends off one enemy while he battles to destroy the other in a rousing adventure of blood, battle, love, devotion, and treachery...
The story of Archibald Douglas has been very exciting in all of the books, thus far. I love learning about the customs of knighthood and heraldry in Scotland and England.
This story is full of political intrigue and action! The battle and jousting sequences are perfect for me. I love the dialogues between friends, lovers, spouses and enemies.
I love this world that the author has provided, it comes alive for me through her pen. Thank you, J. R.
Historical fiction is such a pleasure to read. It's a close third place to fantasy and science fiction as my second and first favorites genres to read.
