Glenna Sinclair’s family was murdered because of a prophecy when she was just two days old. The murder MacNeil decided to adopt Glenna as a daughter believing he was free from the prophecy now that most of the family was dead. Almost two decades later Conall shows up at on the MacNeil lands searching for his missing sister Iona. When he cannot find his sister Glenna begs to be taken as a hostage and later traded for Iona. Conall is enthralled with Glenna so kidnapping her is no hardship. Very quickly Glenna begins to learn all about how life is supposed to be and Conall has to face his past if he is going to defeat MacNeil.
The highlands, the fae and the druids were interesting. The first hurdle with the book is you get the feeling of groundhog day…I want her but no I want him but no and we go round and a round with that for oh 20 chapters or so. Then plot wise some things just did not work for me. For example why is MacNeil evil? He seems frail and mostly lucky not like a true villain. Why does Conill hate the druids? Then there is Glenna everything was in stride..oh your fake dad murdered you family..”oh ok”…there is a secret world of druids (which you never heard of)…”oh ok” but Conill cannot accept me as a druid he will grow to hate me..uggg over and over. Then there was the end it was not very exciting which was kind of a let down
