Ringwood is absolutely thrilled to announce that Song of the Stag by R.M. Brown is now available for pre-order!

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. 

Be sure to PRE-ORDER SONG OF THE STAG for£9.99 (plus P&P) here to receive a signed first edition copy of the book a week before the launch!

Note: Song of the Stag is set to be launched in late June in Dundee. Watch this space for the exact date and time to be confirmed.
