"Ich hatte nie ein Gehirn, bis Freak auftauchte und mir seins für eine Weile überließ, und das ist die Wahrheit, die volle Wahrheit. Die unbezwungene Wahrheit, wie Freak das genannt hätte, und eine Zeit lang hat er das Reden für mich übernommen. Ich selbst hatte bis dahin eigentlich nur mit Fäusten und Füßen geredet, bevor wir dann Freak der Starke wurden, Drachen und Narren töteten und hoch zu Ross ritten." Sie sind eigentlich ein merkwürdiges Gespann: der ungeschlachte Max, den ein dunkles Geheimnis quält, und Kevin, der geniale Zwerg voller Neugier und Fantasie, dessen gebrechlicher Körper nicht mehr wächst. Zusammen werden sie zu einem unschlagbaren Team.

Dieses eBook: "Waverley: Historischer Roman" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Edward Waverley stammt aus englischem Adel. Während sein Vater in London eine politische Karriere als Parteigänger der Whigs macht, damals die Unterstützer der Monarchen aus dem Haus Hannover, wird Waverley von seinem Onkel aufgezogen, der ihm die alten jakobitischen Werte vermittelt, also die der Anhänger des Hauses Stuart. Auf Wunsch seines Vaters beginnt Edward eine Laufbahn als Offizier beim britischen Militär. Wegen eines Missverständnisses und wegen falscher Anschuldigungen kann er von einem Urlaub in den schottischen Highlands nicht zurückkehren und schließt sich dem zu dieser Zeit (1745) in Schottland ausbrechenden zweiten Jakobitenaufstand an der Seite von Charles Edward Stuart an, der den britischen Thron mit Unterstützung insbesondere aus den schottischen Highlands von der 1714 durch den Hannoveraner Georg I. begründeten britischen Dynastie für die Stuarts zurückerobern möchte. Walter Scott (1771-1832) war ein schottischer Dichter und Schriftsteller.
