Scotland, a nation at the edge of Europe, a civilization on the threshold of the Modern Age. In its midst, Nicholas seeks to avenge his bride's claim that she carries the bastard of his archenemy, Simon St. When she flees before Nicholas can determine whether or not the rumored child is his own—or exists at all—Nicholas gives chase.

The Unicorn Hunt confirms Dorothy Dunnett as the genre's finest practitioner.
