Book Review Wednesday by Crazyjedidiah

Freedom's Sword
By J.R. Tomlin

Review by Crazyjedidiah

Andrew de Moray is knighted by King John de Balliol of Scotland. The Scottish army is then routed by the English. Andrew is taken prisoner and kept locked in a dungeon for a year until he escapes. He is injured during his escape he makes it back to his home territory to find that English have taken most of Scotland including his lands. While he is still recovering from his injury he must raise an army and defeat the English.

It is quite an interesting book, Andrew lived around the same time as William Wallace, who he eventually joins up with. Andrew however primarily fought the English in the north of Scotland and Wallace primarily in the south. I guess they needed each other to escape from the rule of the British.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Scottish history especially those who like Braveheart, as this gives another aspect of that time period. I would also recommend it to anyone who likes a good 'David and Goliath' fight.

Thanks for the review! Crazyjedidiah blogs at Gibberish.
