You think too much of me,’ Aggie said with a smirk, then her eyes darkened. ‘This is who I am. If I’d realised that sooner, things might be different.’

‘No, things would be exactly the same because Afren—’

‘Afren is going to pay,’ Aggie said simply.

Cait shook her head. ‘Is this about freedom or revenge?

‘Can’t it be both?’

 

About the book

Cait is from Storran’s borders: idyllic, traditional, and completely opposed to separatism.

When her childhood sweetheart, Kenzie, is called up to the ranks of the Queen’s Watch to hunt down Storrian Separatists, Cait moves to the capital with him.

In the city of Thorterknock, she quickly realises that her charming countryside life is not the reality for every citizen of Storran. Struggle abounds on the cobbled streets, as does the battle for Storran’s liberation from the Five Realms.

Drawn to the enigmatic Separatist firebrand, the Fox of Thorterknock, and her tales of a secret heir to Storran’s long-empty throne, Cait finds herself swept into a struggle for freedom. With Kenzie and the Queen’s Watch on one side, and the Fox and the Separatists on the other, Cait will learn what it truly means to be a patriot.

And amidst this struggle to secure a better future, she will come to know the power of her own autonomy.

Song of the Stag may be a fantasy, but above all it is a love letter to Scotland’s historic and folkloric legacy. From ancient kings and black-hearted patriots to bonnie princes and Jacobite songs, this book is a celebration of a complex, beautiful, and all too often tragic, land.
