The Waverley Novels are a long series of novels by Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832). For nearly a century, they were among the most popular and widely read novels in all of Europe. Because Scott did not publicly acknowledge authorship until 1827, the series takes its name from Waverley, the first novel of the series released in 1814.

The Fortunes of Nigel book. Scott wrote historical novels around Mary, Queen of Scots, and Queen Elizabeth, and this book continues in that vein, with a very interesting and. I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would, based on the prosaic, but descriptive, title. The book is richly poetic in style, with a vast array of well-drawn characters that seem about to step off the page.
