Pressestimmen

'Immaculately researched and carefully written, evoking a very particular - and largely unexplored - time and place. The fights are sensational.' -- Daily Telegraph 'Young's fans will not be disappointed as she meticulously ploughs through the sweep of history and brings to life one of its most enigmatic characters' -- Daily Mail 'It is so graphic you can immediately put yourself there, imagining the faces and the clash of weapons. It also elaborates on the historical context and fleshes out the characters. It draws you in and is a compelling novel you cannot put down. So much research must have gone into the book; the detail is incredible. I enjoyed it so much.' -- The BBC Radio 2 Simon Mayo Book Club 'Richly worked and captivating ... an epic story of war, intrigue and heroism' -- Good Book Guide on BRETHREN 'The fast and furious start to a majestic new trilogy' -- Women and Home 'leads you in swiftly and doesn't let you go' -- Australian Women's Weekly 'this tale captures the struggles of a tumultuous time' -- Australian Daily Telegraph 'another fine novel by Young and a promising start to an exciting new series' -- Canberra Times 'This is a big book, and the trilogy a huge project to undertake. From the evidence so far, Young's fans will not be disappointed as she meticulously ploughs through the sweep of history and brings to life one of its most enigmatic characters' -- Daily Mail 'Action-packed historical novel about Robert The Bruce. A fighting start to a new trilogy.' -- Sun 'Ideal for anyone who loves historical fiction and anyone else who wants a well written and intricate read' -- Sentinel (Staffordshire) 'A cracking plot and charismatic characters are set against the convincingly researched background of the violent, gory Anglo-Scottish civil wars' -- Saga 'Given the events are fixed in historical fiction, the trick is to find supplementary reasons for actions, and Young's conceit - that Edward I is trying to capture four relics (one of which is the Stone of Destiny) - gives a great ulterior motivation. The learning is never cumbersome, a deft trick when describing medieval warfare in all its clunking barbarism.' -- Scotsman 'Young writes with remarkable accuracy, action-packed efficiency and gut-wrenching violence' -- The Times on REQUIEM 'An outstanding contemporary writer' -- Kate Mosse on Robyn Young 'A sweeping historical adventure as well as a cracking sequel' -- Financial Times on CRUSADE 'One of the best historical debuts in recent memory. Exciting and enthralling.' -- John Connolly on BRETHREN 'Wonderful ... loaded with atmosphere, action, and intrigue' -- Steve Berry on BRETHREN 'Like Young's other historical novels, INSURRECTION is meticulously researched ... a treat for any fans of the Scottish Wars of Independence.' -- Historical Novel Review

As an avid reader of historic novels and a particular fan of Robert the Bruce, I thought, wow, this one must be for me! Not so. One of the reasons I enjoy historical novels so much is the chance to soak up historical facts while enjoying an entertaining read.
And yes, of course any author tackling historical themes will need to take certain liberties in order to make the story into a novel, and not a history book. But to my taste, this should aim at filling the gaps between the historical facts and exploring character, motivation and inner facts. Robyn Young goes way beyond this and deliberately tampers historical facts, way too much for my taste. In only one instance does she even explain about this in her comment (on the death of Alexander III).
Also not to my taste is the rather esoteric theme of the dragon knights and the Arthurian connections, which do not fit into the story at all.

One of my problems with this book is probably that I have read rather widely on Bruce and the wars of independence and Robyn Young's interpretation does not fit into the facts and impressions I have collected at all. But altogether, I find this is less a matter of personal taste than rather lack of historical accuracy.

No way will I continue reading this series or pick up any other of her books. Readers picking this up without any further background might enjoy his, but should be warned that this is more fiction than fact.

I tremendously enjoyed "Insurrection". Quite simply because you delve into the 13th century head-first, into a story that is fast-paced with great, gritty characters who do not follow "their destiny", but find themselves faced with complexities much beyond their control and partly beyond their understanding. Naturally, while Robert the Bruce's ethical dilemma is at the core of the story, antagonists like King Edward are just as multi-facetted, torn and filled with doubt, while having to keep a firm grip on power. Robyn Young turns their many trials, risks and triumphs, defeats and uncertainties into a densely written, highly readable narrative - in short: a page-turner.

As a trained historian and having done a lot of historical research myself, I am always interested in how far a novel can be 'historically accurate' and a riveting tale at the same time. To write a story that grabs you from page one means to take liberties with some historical facts. Robyn Young does what few authors do: she explains which liberties she has taken (very few) and to what effect.

While I am no expert on this period I have to contradict "Daspin": the Arthurian legend was one of the core narratives of court societies in the middle ages and inspired countless knights over centuries - in many countries. To me, history is not a mere sequence of dates and facts, it is a vast river of interwoven themes resurfacing and entwining. Indeed, there is an esoteric theme in this book and there should be: after all, people at that time believed in unicorns and the holy grail. It was a time when Christianity had long become the dominant religion, but mythology, ancient rites and pantheistic traditions still existed on the fringes of society.

Nach 30% wusste ich immer noch nicht, um was es eigentlich geht. Zusammenhanglos. Man kommt gar nicht in die Geschichte rein, den Charakteren fehlt jegliche Tiefe.
Ich breche eigentlich ungern mitten im Buch ab aber hier hat Weiterlesen gar keinen Zweck!
