A revisit to the Scottish Borders and the complex political manoeuvrings at play in 16th century Europe.
“Lymond is back”
I originally read A Game of Kings, the first of Dorothy Dunnett’s Lymond Chronicles, in my third year at St Andrews – half a lifetime ago.
I still love Lymond – who wouldn’t? Misunderstood underdog, stunningly skilled at sword- and word-play, master of a myriad other talents, and of Culter.
