In Dragon Knight's Shield, Mary Morgan writes a captivating tale about Angus MacKay and Deirdre Flanagan, two lovers who travel through the veil of time to be together. Angus, a Highlander once belonging to the Order of the Dragon Knights, must begin his quest for redemption. Believing that his sins are great and that redemption will not be his, he encounters Deirdre, a modern day warrior. Deirdre finds it hard to believe that she has ended up in medieval Scotland, but with the handsome Highlander stealing her heart can she go back home or will she stay with him? Together can these two venture forth to stop the evil that is trying to take over Scotland, and restore the Order?
Mary Morgan has completely taken me by surprise with this book. Upon discovering this book, I felt it was necessary to read the previous three books, although this one can be a stand alone read. The development of her writing is greatly appreciated as it shows her wonderful skills as a writer who knows what her audience wants. The dialogue conveys each character's personality clearly and also shows the author's humorous personality.
The plot of the story is engaging and will have readers eagerly turning the pages for more. It is a mixture of historical romance with the supernatural, creating an exciting adventure. There were elements of sword fighting and magic, giving the reader the added bonus of adventure and action on top of the romance. Mary Morgan weaves an interesting tale and I cannot wait for the next installment of the series to appear on the bookshelves.
