                            BOOK BLURB 

During a time of civil strife and purging the North has lost more men to Wars then it ever did to Nature.
Angus has grown up learning that his life is better off with only him and a family. But is that really in the Grand Plan?
The North needs someone to build community.
But first, he needs to be beaten, shaped, bolded and trained.

Watch as Angus hits both lows and highs across the lands of England, Scotland and France, before meeting a challenge of new land.
                        MY REVIEW 

      This is the fourth book in the series and we meet Angus. he is young and living in the time where Northern Scotland is being invaded by the English . Leaving in their wake broke homes and families destroyed . When we first meet Angus he is charged with delivering a message from his father to a neighbouring king.  But with all epic adventures his is no different . The journey is full of trials and twists . Once he arrives he meets Angela, the kings daughter all alone . When a rider less horse shows up the odds of her father coming home are looking grim. What we see is Angus and Angela looking for their fathers on the battle field, where the find soldiers and nurse them back to health all while living in a cave . 
With the challenges that come and go as they work there way across England, Scotland and England . 
   These characters are very well written and complex. You can't help but fall in love with Angus . He is a man of peace but life has a way of putting him through trials and tribulations
that molded him into the strong man he became.  Angela is a tough cookie too she is strong and is there for Angus when he needed her . They go through so much together and are stronger for it in the end . 
   I really didn't know if I was going to like this one as much as the other books . Angus wasn't one of the Crofter children so I really didn't know how the author was going to retell his story, I must admit he took us on a wild adventure ride into the war between Scotland and England and off to the new world .  This one feels more adventurous then the other stories . These books are great for anyone from the age of 12 to adult to read . They are clean and oh so well written . You get transported back to a time where there is strife and wars but also you find loving families that care for each other . Each story is a great read and you will love every character . So get this series for you and your kids . You will all love them .  So add them to your fall and winter reading list
