|New from||Used from|
Juli D. Revezzo ... has created a wonderful blend of fierce battles, powerful determination and romance that will leave her readers waiting for more! I was lost to reality as each page revealed great imagination, perfect character interaction and the power of love. ~ Dii @ Tome Tender
The author has a deep knowledge of Celtic antiquity and has imbued her story with authentic details about gods, practices and beliefs, which was one of the things I most enjoyed about this book along with the hero, a warrior of an ancient Irish race. Not only is Isaac one of the most attractive heroes I've encountered in a while but he harbors magic, a potent combination. ~Laura Hartland
Ms. Revezzo writes soft and lovely prose...all wrapped up in a Celtic tale. ~Babs Z.
From the Author
The Celtic Steward Chronicles are about the women of a gods-blessed family of stewards whose history spans from mythic Ireland to the Medieval period, to present day Florida. While all the stewards know the mythology surrounding their family, one woman in the 1500s, Ruth Macken, had the foresight to write the story of their magical heritage down. This is her story....

The author has a deep knowledge of Celtic antiquity and has imbued her story with authentic details about gods, practices and beliefs, which was one of the things I most enjoyed about this book along with the hero, a warrior of an ancient Irish race. Not only is Isaac one of the most attractive heroes I’ve encountered in a while but he harbors magic, a potent combination.
Much of the story is a lead-up to the battle that must take place on the heroine, Ruth’s land, a contest between darkness and light that occurs every five centuries. I don’t want to give away any secrets here as to who wins or what surprise warrior turns up. But if you’d like to spend some time in sixteenth-century Ireland along with druids, gods and evil monsters, this book is a great choice.
The setting of the story and time period was well-described in this book, and there was enough back story presented early on to refresh my memory of the series’ mythology and characters. It may be a little confusing for a new reader to get into, so I would recommend reading the books in order of publication, rather than chronologically.
I liked the main characters, Ruth and Issac, and felt their romance developed naturally and suited the circumstances. In just a few scenes though, I was confused by Ruth’s dialogue. Eg: she was sometimes surprised to learn something that I felt she already knew, or she asked the same question more than once. Aside from that, the whole cast of characters worked well together. I liked the comaraderie of the warriors and the new friendships that Ruth developed too.
The Celtic myths and various evil creatures were an important part of the story, and I thought they were well presented. There’s a lot of fighting in the story, (it is war, after all) but it’s not too graphic and doesn’t take over the main story/romance.
This really is a good premise for a series, and I believe the author is planning at least one more story. It’ll be fun to continue reading about the Macken family in different time periods. Some of the druid characters could also (potentially) have their own stories one day too.
For his part, Isaac knew this day would be coming, that the next Steward would be his to protect. Did he dare hope that she would want more than just his protection? How would he live with himself, should he fail in his duties? It was one thing to know the whole world was at stake; it was something else to risk losing her.
Many series suffer from the dread sequel syndrome – not so this book! The story picks up right away, and Ruth had me rooting for her from the get go. Isaac is charming, steady, with just the right amount of sensitivity to the upheaval Ruth has to be going through as her world is turned upside down – foretold or no. I am very much looking forward to the rest of this series, especially if the author continues to take us back in time!
In theory, it could be read as a stand alone, but I do suggest you read Passion's Sacred Dance for the best enjoyment possible.
If you're a fan of Celtic mythology, of pagan-friendly fiction, of paranormal romances (though one can't call this contemporary, specifically) you need to check this series out.
Fantasy and danger combine to wisk the reader away to other worlds and times.
I fell for the main characters immediately and even felt sympathy for a few lesser liked secondary characters. If you enjoy fantasy, pick up this series. Historical readers will also find plenty to appreciate. Ruth is an amazing strong, yet human, inspirational character, loyal to her values, beliefs and family, even those not yet born.
Danger, adventure, excitement and moments of holding your breath.
Ms. Revezzo writes soft and lovely prose interspersed with fantastical battle scenes. There are goddesses, selkies, unimaginable monsters, seductive powers, inhuman sounds and terrors of the night all wrapped up in a Celtic tale. The characters are well developed, with loyalty to family and tradition as well as an overpowering will to live.
