Publisher's Summary

Shakespeare's witches tell Banquo, "Thou shalt 'get kings though thou be none".

Though Banquo is murdered, his son Fleance gets away. What happened to Fleance? What kings? The road to kingship had a most inauspicious beginning, and we follow Fleance into exile and death, passing the witches' prophecy to his son Walter. 

Born on the wrong side of the blanket and raised in disgrace, Walter was caught inside of a destiny he barely understood. In an effort to untangle Banquo's murder and honor his lineage, Walter moved through events that shaped the course of England and Scotland. His relationships with the great men of his time drove his destiny: Harold Godwineson, Alain of Brittany, and finally, Malcolm III.

After a long and treacherous journey through Wales, England, and France, Walter fulfilled the witches’ prophecy as the first steward of Scotland and ancestor of James I - for whom, Shakespeare wrote Macbeth.

This is a magnificent story and rendition!

This is an amazing story! I enjoyed the world building and the characters really come to life. An audiobook is a great way to enjoy a tale.
I have read other books by this author and have derived a great deal of pleasure from the experience. Listening to the audiobook was so different, I am really glad I used my ears for the story, instead of my eyes. The narrator made a big difference, he performed multiple voices flawlessly.
The author’s research is phenomenal, it brings a wonderful foundation to the story, I felt like I was walking with the main character throughout. The heartbreak, joy and anger were easily felt and helped make the story so good!
I award “Heir to a Prophecy” five stars! Such a fabulous experience in the audiobook and a wonderful story overall!
