Dalriada: The Dawn of a King

As Scotland struggles to emerge in 824 A.D., the people of Dalriada are attempting to endure within a dangerous land where only the most courageous deeds assure survival. While Dalriadans battle for freedom, adversaries advance on every side. Lands to the south and east bring both Briton and Pict while the seas to the north bring the villainous Vikings. The call to the Dalriadans is clear—either fight or die.

Alpin and his sons, Coric and Kenneth, are champions of the calling. But these clansmen need more than swords to save their people. They need the heart of a king. As the men struggle to survive the cunning Picts and savage Vikings, treachery imperils the land and prompts Kenneth to set out on a quest to unite his people. But can he carry out his task without forsaking his betrothed, Arabella? Now as the future hangs in the balance, Kenneth and the others must rise up to secure their precious freedom before their savage enemies rob them of life, love, and their destiny.

In this rousing historical tale, a Dalriadan clansman and his sons answer a calling that asks them to sacrifice everything in order to ensure the future of their beloved land and family.
