Although English to the bone I felt a real affinity with Robert and James, and came to dislike our King Edward and wished him dead from the start.

Totally enjoying this journey I am on, learning about the life of one of the most legendary people, legendary Kings to have thwarted the english king and rule as the King of Scots. I am a lover of books on history, especially as it relates to the advent of christianity and how its..beginning effected all who had, for time beyond time, followed the Old Ways. Though this is not the topic of this series, rather this is the story of the struggle of Scotlands desire to be their own country and not under the rule of whoever sat the throne of the english (which is pretty bizarre at times; not all who held that throne were exactly "good christians". Excellent series; this was the second in the series and decided to just curl up in bed (cold Saturday anyhow) and just read. I ended up reading this second installment in one day. Now on book three;last in the series and just as good as the first two. How did I not know of this excellent author?? and?? not one mis-spelling, nor typo to interrupt the storyline. I signed up on the mailing list so I can be made aware of any more forthcoming books from this author. Want to learn about "The Bruce"?? start here.

I really have enjoyed this historical book about Robert the Bruce. As he travels from place to place, I keep switching to Wikipedia to see pictures of the castles he is in. Reading the descriptions of his battles and descriptions of the history surrounding his efforts to win Scottish freedom on Wikipedia enhance the reading experience. The author has done really well with transporting his readers to a pitifully cold army of stragglers, poorly equipped but determined to gain independence from Britain. Bruce's struggles, emotional and physical are so real. Facinating.

After reading the first novel in The Bruce Trilogy by N. Gemini Sasson, The Crown in the Heather, I was hooked and already counting her among my favorite authors of historical fiction. I immediately bought the second novel in the trilogy, Worth Dying For, and I also bought her novel Isabeau, because after reading the first novel, I knew that Sasson was an author who will remain among my all time favorites. I only wish she had written a hundred more novels, so that I could own them all! I know I sound a little over the top, but I guess I'm the type of reader who discovers an author that I like, and then reads every single one of their novels!

Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I loved the second book in The Bruce Trilogy just as much as I loved first one. I have so much anticipation built up for the third and final novel in the trilogy! I can't believe that I have never read a historical fiction novel dealing with Robert the Bruce's life. I've read hundreds of books dealing with royalty and also dealing with the time period that The Bruce was alive, but somehow either I missed the books, or maybe there just aren't many historical fiction novels dealing with The Bruce. Plus, there's also the fact that in the majority of books that I've read that did mention Robert the Bruce, he's portrayed as a horrible traitor, and is given no redeeming qualities. I enjoyed getting "his" side of the story!

Sasson also brings other legendary men to life; such as the brave and ruthless Scot, James Douglas, and the cowardly, fey-like Edward II of England. I really like how the narrator switches between different men involved on both sides of the war between Scotland and England. As a reader you're able to get a more balanced point of view, and to understand more than just one side of the story. Although it's obvious that Robert the Bruce is the hero of Sasson's novels, it's still nice to see things from his perspective as well as Edward II. I've always preferred to read books from multiple P.O.V.'s, because it makes the novel more rounded as a whole.

Sasson's research and writing style are, in my opinion, flawless. I know that I sound like I'm gushing, but I really am THAT impressed with her novels. I love a good historical fiction novel that is so well researched, and written so well, that by the end of the book I feel like an expert on the content. I honestly think that a show about Robert the Bruce's life would be as popular as THE TUDORS or THE BORGIAS on SHOWTIME! If her novels were turned into a SHOWTIME series the world would fall in love with Robert the Bruce, and of course the author, N. Gemini Sasson.

Ok, so now that I've gushed about how absolutely fascinating THE CROWN IN THE HEATHER and WORTH DYING FOR are, how does everyone feel about the fact that N. Gemini Sasson has offered to give TWO of my readers a copy of the first book in the trilogy, which is THE CROWN IN THE HEATHER!

The winner of the giveaway will have their choice between a signed paperback copy of the first novel in the trilogy, or an ebook compatible with Kindle. If you are a fan of historical fiction, then I think it's impossible not to love this book.

This is the second book in the Robert the Bruce trilogy. It continues the story of his fight for the freedom of Scotland from British domination. This is an objective retelling of this well-known history. It is entertaining reading, and as far as I can telll, historically accurate and not too exaggerated. I look forward to reading the third book, to find out how the story ends.

Read the first book of the Trilogy (The Crown in the Heather) then this one, and then the last one, The Honor Due a King. This book is well written (as are the other two), based on historical fact and is a fascinating read, even if you do not yet know you will enjoy reading about Scottish history. Robert the Bruce became the King of Scotland and his fight to get and keep his Kingship during one of the most unsettled times in Scotland's past makes for a fascinating read.

I found myself sitting up late at night reading the books. Finished the first and could not wait to begin the second, then the third. You will do the same!

This second book about Robert the Bruce is about him gathering his army to him from all over Scotland. There are many small battles and the book ends with the Battle of Bannockburn (near Stirling) where Robert the Bruce, outnumbered two to one, defeated King Edward II of England. I recommend this book to everyone.

Overall, Worth Dying For: The Bruce Trilogy Book 2 N. Gemini Sasson is an excellent book for adults. It's a pity as the history seems to be fairly accurate but some of the writing is targeted towards adults. In particular there are a couple sex scenes that are a bit racy and the war scenes are a bit brutal.

I'm glad I downloaded the book as I'm trying to learn more about the Bruce family after discovering I am a direct descendant of King Robert the Bruce. Sasson is probably a distant relative of mine too as she is related to the Bruce family.

Recommend with caveats given.
My review is about the Trilogy. These three books are an excellent review of the period. I really enjoyed reading about the ups and down of the story of his life. The books should all be read in sequence.
