Oh my, what an addictive story to start with. This is one Highland adventure that not only has some fierce and sexy highlanders in it but a world full of mysteries, magic, Celtic paganism, mixture of christian beliefs, and bitter sweet revenge. The writing is beautiful and the beginning romance is a sweet tease (Heat Level 2).
This first book is just the beginning of the whole story as we are introduced to the Irish countryside and their countrymen. The readers get to meet the MacCahan Clan: Laird ,Patrick (oldest son - patient and laid back), Parkin (ladies man), Payton (youngest brother), Braeden (heir to the O'Malley Clan who is being fostered), the their blacksmith and Druid Airard and the O'Malley Clan that consist of Ruarac O'Connel (brother in law to Laird O'Malley), Deasum MacNaultey, Carbry O'Quinn, Aengus O'Connell, Laird Dallin O'Malley's daughters Darina, Dervila, Darina, Daenal, Darcy, and Dareca.
The beginning of a plot takes form as an arranged marriage is formed by Laird O'Malley and Laird MacCahan in order to protect the O'Malley's Clan and their secret from reaching the evil priestess Odetta Burke knowledge. This marriage was to take place in the event that Laird O'Malley died. The plot has an interesting twist to it as the evil priestess Odetta puts a curse on the O'Malley Clan where no male's would be born in the O'Malley Clan and for 22 years there was no known male born or recorded. But secrets to protect the O'Malley Clan eventually come forward and the plots action unfolds in order to keep the unknown male child Braeden safe until he is old enough to take his place as Laird of the O'Malley's.
The drama is totally awesome and the ending leaves the reader hanging. The marriage takes place between Patrick and Darina however their wedding nite ends unexpected as Patrick is called away before he can comsamate the marriage. Now the whole clan is in uproar because their new Laird Patrick is off on a quest to rescue Braeden who was kidnapped. With this Darina learns the long kept secret and she along with Patrick's brother Parkin they start a quest to find Patrick.
I love these clans especially the O'Malley clan because they were one of the first clans who allowed women to wear truis (pants) and train women to be soldiers.
I really liked this and I will be jumping right into the next book to finish this story.
I love it because it's a wonderful story line which is woven around a period in histroy, that is, very much, to this day, shrouded in mystery and intregue. The time of the Druid PriestS and Priestesses. You've skillfully blended in the christen and pagen views as well. I love the characters and the period that you have so skillfully created. It both captures the mind and the fuels the imagination. So, you might ask whats to HATE?
I hate that I never saw it coming. You dragged the reader, me, into the plot and kept me turning those pages. So intent on reaching that all satisfying end. The one that leaves you smiling like the Cheshire cat and signing like a replete lover. Then you show me the light shining across the broad expense and send me flying on the feet of fool into the clearing. The next thing I know, I AM THERE.
WHERE YOU SAY???? Hanging on the cliff by my fingernails, which I must say are very short, hooked like a big mouth bass whose only option, to reach the end, is to buy the next story in the series. I Hate cliffhangers, but what can I do?? You caught me fair and square. So I bought the next one.
You better hurry up and write the others AS you say at the end of Celtic Storms there are at least four others to come.
BRAVO, MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU. YOU HAVE A WINNER OF A SERIES. Who can stop in the middle of anything so spectacular- NOT ME, THAT'S FOR SURE.
Everything I said about this one is correct. But PLEASE READ MY REVEIW ON BOOK 2 BEFORE YOU BLINDLY BUY IT.
