The trip is not an easy one nor is it without profound dangers. Twists and turns occur not only on the trail, but in the journey itself. Eventually Angus makes it to neighboring castle and comes upon Angela, the daughter of the king he was to deliver his father’s message to. Angela is alone in the castle. The return of her father’s rider-less horse one day, was an ominous sign.
What ensues is the pairs quest to find her father. As the story unfolds these two teens who have been through so much, fall in love in the midst of dark times and terrible hardships. Their travels in search of her father lead them to a battlefield and a cave where they take up temporary residence and nurse wounded soldiers back to health. Thus begins Angus' personal journey as he grapples with challenges and trials that will test him and shape him.
Mike Hartner delivers in a young-adult book that is rich in historical details and large on adventure. I, Angus is part of his ongoing The Eternity Series. After reading this one you will want to return for more. Each of the books tells its own story so they can be read as standalone volumes.
The author does an exceptional job of making readers care about his main character, Angus. They become emotionally attached to Angus as a young adult and invested in the story as he progresses through middle aged adulthood. Utilizing war torn Scotland as the backdrop Mike Hartner has delivered a gem of a historical fiction novel certain to please many a young adult reader.
"I, Angus" is another addition to author Mike Hartner’s "The Eternity Series" ongoing line of books. The author presents a main character readers will become emotionally invested in. Set in war torn Scotland and rich in medieval lore with castles and kings and knights, this story will surely please many young adult readers.
The story begins with Angus leaving his family castle to deliver a message from his father to a neighboring laird. From there he encounters one hardship after another, experiencing great love and loss, until he ends up in France at a monastery run by the Knights Templar. Eventually, he finds his way back into his beloved lands of Northern Scotland as a Reverend, assisting war widows and orphans in finding safety and new lives.
For those who read, I, Mary, you might remember Angus as the kind Reverend who shows up with his adopted daughters, Margret and Aileen. I loved how the stories of Mary, Andrew, and Angus twined together at the end.
In true style to the other novels within The Eternity Series, author Mike Hartner delivers historical details with chunky paragraphs and character driven narrative akin to Choose Your Own Adventure stories. I enjoy the journaling style used to give an account of Angus’ life from young adulthood through his middle years, similar to the other novels within this series. Angus is very likable, tender-hearted, with a beautiful soul who anguishes to make a difference to those less fortunate.

Looking forward to the next one!!! :D
As a man of peace Angus has seen his share of death, and he is certain that the North has lost more men to the violence of war than it ever did to the ravages of Nature. Although he wants no part of such violence, it seems as if a peaceful existence and a loving family may not be a part the Grand Plan for Angus. Because the North needs a leader; someone who is able to build communities.
However, Angus Mackenzie must first undergo his own trials by fire. He must be tested, shaped and molded by his adversity. The person who emerges from this particular crucible will ultimately be a much stronger and much wiser man; someone who is held in the highest esteem and much beloved by those who know him. Angus Mackenzie will hit both highs and lows as he travels across the lands of England, Scotland and France, all before he meets the challenge of a new land.
I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I wasn't quite sure where the story would go from the previous book, as Angus Mackenzie wasn't actually a relative of Mary Crofter. However, I found that this book worked perfectly within the series; the plot was just as intriguing as the previous books and advanced the story along very well. I would give this book an A!
Full Disclosure: 'I, Angus' by Mike Hartner read and reviewed by Mareena McGirr, an avid reader and book reviewer from Albany, New York. Many thanks to the Dorothy at 'Pump up Your Book' and the author as I received a copy of this book for free from them.
