Mac Ailpin's Treason


When Dál Riata’s King is viciously killed by the Pictish army, his son, Cináed mac Ailpín, is driven into exile.

Resultant chaos reigns across the lands of Alba, in the guise of tragedy and Viking brutality; ultimately forcing Cináed to seek out a new kingdom for the Gaels … and to extract bloody revenge.

‘A gripping historical adventure that brings the birth of Scotland to life.’ – Paul A. Freeman
