I was intrigued by the opening poem and concept, but abandoned the story half way through - just too choppy, weak dialogue, heavy on telling what happened, light on setting, sections are sometimes heavy on the historical references that don't mesh with the rest of the plot line. Not saving this one.

The story opens in England with events that lead to accusations of witchcraft. Raven and her mother are hanged, Raven revives, learns she was born an immortal high witch, and flees to the new world to escape the evil witch who would kill her to capture her heart.

The story continues with the sea crossing and arrival at her aunt's home near Sanctuary in New England, just before the Salem witch trials. There is a brief bit explaining what Raven and Duncan do once they reach America, and both meet again in Sanctuary. Classic lustful villain can't have her, claims he's bewitched, and events happen to again raise cries of witchcraft, she's killed again, revives and flees to the forest under the protection of an Iriquois shaman.

There's more about what happened to Duncan, a reveal of backstory about Arriana, and other plot points, but overall it's a disjointed telling.

The story takes a brief turn with historical references to Salem, and how this affects Raven.

Then the story skips back to her fleeing England and the events on her voyage to the new world. Not sure why the story skips back and forth in time so much, but gave up about half way through, and don't plan to finish this one.

    The author is a witch

    Maggie shayne is a practicing wiccan priestess. If you,the reader, are a Christian; beware and think before down loading this intro to satanism.

    HIGHLANDER Redux

    Although Shayne is a competent writer, anyone who is familiar with the Immortals of Highlander on TV will instantly recognize the characters and the rules of their eternal game. ETERNITY seems to echo Duncan MacLeod, INFINITY centers on Connor MacLeod, and DESTINY strongly reminds this reader of Methos and Cassandra. So they fight with knives instead of swords, and cut out hearts instead of cutting off heads.
