Wow - what a great prequel for the Highland Warrior series!
on November 17, 2012
Honest disclaimer: I did a beta read of this book for Anita before it came out. But I was a fan of this Highland Warrior series long before I ever did the beta read.
I love, love, love that we get to know Faelan, his family, and his "world" better. When we meet him in book #1, Awaken the Highland Warrior, he's yummy, but somewhat mysterious. He's inadvertently been trapped in the very time vault that he was planning to use to capture Druan, one of the ancient demons. Faelan was given the task by the Archangel Michael, who assigns Warriors to the demons they'll kill. It's unusual for any Warrior to be assigned to an ancient demon; they're usually taken out by Michael and his band of angels. But occasionally, Michael gives one of the Warriors the honor of the assignment.
Where much is alluded to in book #1 of Faelan's family, the Book of Battles, his assignment to get Druan and what might have happened - both why Faelan was taken and what happened to his family, THIS is the book where we get the story first-hand.
We learn so much more about the Council, the Archangel Michael and his assignments, the Book of Battles, how Bree's family gets involved in the whole Druan-Faelan thing, how Faelan happens to end up in the time vault in Bree's family's crypt, and so much more!
If you like books about hunky, alpha male Highland warriors in kilts - especially those who literally fight evil (demons, vampires, and the like), you'll LOVE this book! It's a great introduction to the Highland Warrior series.
If you're a fan of the series, you'll feel as if you really get to know Faelan - who he is and how he became the man and the Mighty Faelan, great warrior. This book is a "meaty "appetizer for the Highland Warrior fans awaiting the next big book, #3, in the series.
In fact, while this book is called a "brief", it's anything but! It's jam-packed with action, adventure, mystery, and so much more.
