With all the political intrigue of Game of Thrones combined with the sweeping romanticism of Outlander, the first book in the legendary Lymond Chronicles finds Francis Crawford of Lymond-traitor, murderer, nobleman-returning to Scotland to redeem his reputation and save his home.
It is 1547, and Scotland has been humiliated by an English invasion and is threatened by further intrigues from beyond its borders. Yet it is still free. Paradoxically, its 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 with both the will and the cunning to clear his name and defend his people-even if it costs him his life.
