One of history's most turbulent times comes dramatically to life in this big, broad adventure novel. Twelve-year-old Alex, determined to get to the bottom of his parents' disappearance, sets out on a quest to find them. An ambitious time-travel novel set in Scotland at the time of William Wallace, Death of a King explores the turbulence of the bloody late thirteenth century after King Alexander dies on his way to Kinghorn without leaving an heir to the throne. The country is thrown into chaos, and Alex must overcome many obstacles along his path. Full of humor, intrigue, bloodshed, battles, and suspense, Death of a King is a rollicking read told by a major voice in historical fiction.

About the Author:

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-7-Thirteen-year-old Alex is on a journey through 13th-century Scotland to find hi. Present-day parents. While on his adventure, he helps William Wallace win the Battle of Stirling Bridge, escapes death multiple times at the hands of villagers, and befriends some important people of the time. At one desperate moment, Alex's friends from the companion novel, The Battle for Duncragglin (Tundra, 2009), come to the rescue and help him change the course of history. At times, the pacing is a little strange and the character development is weak. It's hard for readers to be emotionally invested in characters who seem unconcerned about the well-being of their friends, even in the most dire situations, so intense moments of strife, such as hangings and beheadings, come across as insignificant. The story seems well researched, however, and the mix of science fiction and historical fiction will be appealing to many readers due to its quick pace and constant action.-Kristyn Dorfman, The Packer Collegiate Institute, Brooklyn, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.
