In 1547 Scotland has been humiliated by an English invasion and is threatened by machinations elsewhere beyond its borders, but it still is free. Paradoxically, her freedom may depend on a man who stands accused of treason. He is Francis Crawford of Lymond, a scapegrace nobleman of crooked felicities and murderous talents, possessed of a scholar's erudition and a tongue as wicked as a rapier. In the Game of Kings this extraordinary antihero returns to the country that has outlawed him, to redeem his reputation even at the risk of his own life.
