Children of the Mist

Children of the Mist

‘Our race is royal,’ is the proud claim of the MacGregors. Yet for all
their history and fighting prowess, they are a small clan and their
lands too close for comfort to the great Clan Campbell.

By the end of the 16th century, the heritage of their new young chieftain,
Alastair MacGregor, is a poisoned chalice indeed. Not only has much
of their land been lost, but their principal threat is Black Duncan of the
Cowl, Campbell of Glenorchy. Campbell is as clever as he is unscrupulous
– and he has the ear of King James VI.
