Another good review for The Poisoned Cup has appeared on Amazon:-
This book is billed as the other side of the Braveheart movie but it is a lot more accurate even though it is historical fiction and some of the main characters didn't really exist. This is the dark side of the Wallace story. The hero is an older knight who sees battle for the grim result and not for glory. He tells the tale of bloodlust driven by hate, inept commanders, and the impact on innocents. To make the story interesting, the author includes a fictional (maybe...) heroine who is very strong but also believable. If you are disillusioned by romantic accounts of Falkirk and Sterling battles, read this to get closer to the real deal. I'd like to read more by this author.
