I am the first to say that Mary Morgan's, Order of the Dragon Knights Series is steeped in legend, has grand sweeping landscapes and epic lovestories.. It is a fantastic series that combines some of Scotland's known legends with sheer fantasy. It has time travel and Druids, Dashing Heroes in need of redemption and strong Heroines willing to believe in the impossible.
The first two books Dragon Kinght's Sword and Dragon Knight's Medallion are beyond spectacular but book three, Dragon Knight's Axe was a bit of a miss. Don't get me wrong it was a very good book but it lacked the power of mythos.
The legend continues and this time it's Alastair MacKay who is destined to find redemption in the arms of his destined mate, a woman from the future. Only this time there's a twist.. no I'm not telling you *grins*
Fiona O’Quinlan is a modern woman with her head in the past. Translating ancient texts is her greatest pleasure and she often gets lost in the wonder of it all. When a "friend and co-worker" steals her work and claims she hasn't done a thing, Fiona is tossed from her latest assignment and at a bit of a loss of what to do. Fortunately a temporary position on another dig came up and from there Fiona is literally transported to the past. Right into a slave auction. Only to be saved by a big "beast" of a man and feeling like she's gone from the fire to pan..
Alastair MacKay has turned his life on his family and heritage. He's convinced that he has nothing to offer mankind and his legacy is nothing but a lost dream. He's a man of the earth but to further punish himself he forces himself to make his life at sea. When on land he's there for the shortest period possible. But one such stop changes the course of his life.
Alastair is never quite sure of why he saved Fiona from the slave mart, he just knew he had to. He tried to turn away from her but there was something constantly pulling at him. And when he tried to return her to her family both of them were in for the surprise of a lifetime, or two!
Watching Alastair and Fiona run as fast as they can away from each other only to keep finding the other in the same place was rather fun. While this was an emotional push and pull I wanted more Druids and Dragons.. And I am thinking I am being a bit rough because as I write this review I realize that there was so much going on behind the scenes. That the Druid dynamics are much subtler I have to rethink my initial claim on this book. It isn't as action packed as the first two, it's subtler, it's sneakier. And yet the relationship between Alastair and Fiona was strong and true.
I loved that while Fiona fit perfectly in the past, she was always a modern woman with a mind of her own and Alastair had to prove himself to her not the other way around.
This review is based on the ARC of Dragon Knight's Axe, provided by the author for an honest review.
Alastair MacKay a hardened famed dragon knight forsakes his power and his heritage after the death of his much beloved sister escapes all and the memories for the high seas. Alastair ports in Ireland to sell his wares but comes upon a slave trader and the beautiful Fiona O’Quinlan. Alastair recognizes the Fiona’s clan and decides to buy her to bring her back to her brothers. While on the journey danger awaits them at every turn and the most dangerous of the ventures for both Fiona and Alastair is love but it could also cost them their very lives.
I think why I waited so long to read and finish reading this story was because of the hero Alastair he was gruff, very aloof, and churlish at first. He just seemed so cantankerous especially regarding his actions towards Fiona through most of the book that he wasn’t winning any points with me. A lot of the time I was pleading with him to be a bit nicer because I wanted a hero I could fall for besides just a handsome face I wanted him to prove to me that he was truly a wonderful guy not be mean to the heroine. As the book progressed I started to like him a little bit and was beginning to understand why he was the way he was. I think Meggie’s death affected him more than any of the other brothers. Plus I was thankful that Ms. Morgan did bring my favorite brother Stephan back so it was well worth the read just to read more of Stephan as well. Fiona was just such an awesome heroine that I just loved her from the get go! She was brave, plucky, independent and feisty I seriously just loved her and her interactions with all her brothers. I do hope Ms. Morgan writes Desmond and Patrick there is definitely more to him than meets the eye. Even though I don’t think I should have waited to read the book quite as long as I did and despite my silly reservations I rated the book four stars. I will most likely read it again, can recommend it and will definitely get more books from Ms. Morgan!
Dragon Knight’s Axe, (Order of the Dragon Knight’s Series #3)
The third book in the Mary Morgan Order of the Dragon Knight’s series, Dragon Knight’s Axe wasn’t as entertaining as the previous two books of the series. There seems to be a strain by the author to make the story come together.
As the previous books, much of the story takes place in the 11th century in Scotland. The brother’s McKay make up the Dragon Knight’s. They are all strong and possess mystical powers from the Tuatha De Danann. All the brothers are half human, half fae.
Due to a tragedy involving their sister and her love, a man from a rival clan, the brothers each take their own journey’s away from their home to pay the price of their actions in the tragedy.
Dragon’s Knight Axe is the story of Alastair MacKay, the battled-scarred brother who has taken to the sea to escape his past. Research assistant, Fiona O’Quinlan loves translating ancient artifacts at Trinity College. When she falls asleep on an archeological dig, she awakens in another time.
I found myself hoping that the story would end soon. As I had already invested myself in the series, I knew I would read the next book. I also hoped that the next book in the series would be better.
