Elder Druid: Book 5 in the Caledonia Fae Fantasy Series

As the Druid Hall celebrates the completion of the Mistgate, their leader Munro is abducted, leaving them in disarray. Queen Eilidh declares Munro dead, which threatens the fragile balance of power in the Halls of Mist. With the druids crippled by grief and uncertainty, no one notices the insidious force influencing them from a dark mirror realm.

That force has a voice, a sinister whisper in Lord Druid Douglas' ear, compelling him to feed the Source Stone and driving a wedge between him and his companions. Trath's magic could protect the druid lord, but the prince has fled heartbreak in search of a different life. But will his quest bring redemption or ruin?

The Caledonia Fae Fantasy Book Series

The modern tale begins in Perth, Scotland, where a police constable chases a serial killer, only to discover the crime has roots in the supernatural, a paranormal reality he never knew existed. During his murder investigation, contact with a mysterious woman stirs his dormant druidic powers, changing his life forever. She, and the killer, are fae.

In this bestselling urban and epic fantasy book series, humans are plucked from Scotland, England, The Netherlands, Germany, The United States, Australia, and elsewhere and transported into the faerie realm. They learn to build a new life, tame their magic, even find love, all while facing danger, murder, kidnapping, and chaos. Those who survive will usher a new era into the Otherworld.

India knew from age nine that writing would be her passion. Since then she's discovered many more, but none quite so fulfilling as creating a world, a character, or a moment and watching them evolve into something complex and compelling. She has lived in three countries and four American states, is a dual British and American citizen, and currently lives at the base of the Scottish Highlands in a village so small its main attraction is a red phone box. In other words: paradise.

I picked this up on mu Nook and boy am I glad I did! I really like this series a lot!!!. The plot and subplots are interesting. The characters are well developed and likable. I hate when characters are so perfect that you just want to punch them but I also don't want them to be asshats. One of my favorite aspects of the books are the unconventional relationships. A fae queen has more than one husband for example. The progression of the story from one book to the next is good, not rushed at all. I fact I would love it if the books were twice as long. I like these people and I'd like to know more about them. I would recommend these to anyone who is remotely interested in fantasy type books.

This book focuses slightly more on Trath and Douglas's experiences than the previous books, and while it's still  Clearly focused on Munro and Eilidth as heroines, it tells the emotional stories of both Trath and Douglas, and that Of their bond. Trath starts to come into the role of a prince and that of a leader slowly but surely, finally  Growing into who he was destined to be as is his birthright. Unfortunately, he has to fight heartache the entire way Feeling rejected as he does by Douglas's seeming indifference to him and focus on feeding the source stone. I appreciated the depth the author gave to their relationship, allowing for struggle between the characters and Struggle within themselves, instead of just blind devotion and love the way so many paranormal romance stories Are. Douglas's difficult period of self-hatred and shame over his sexuality, was unfortunately, all too easy to Believe, because it happens all the time, but there was also beauty in their story.  On a related but different note, Trath discovers a whole section of a city that is packed with starving azuri fae, who live their lives at mere slave status. They are all mutilated before being sent there upon discovery of their magical abilities, and are mutilated even further if they are found still practicing their talents in secret.  It Is here that one of the Druids is drawn to, by the call of bonding magic, and how Trath discovers the sad fate These azuri Fae have been forced to live. On a different note, Munro has disappeared through a portal when a huge black hand appears as he tries to pass  through, and after Eilidth is unable to save him, she is reduced to a mourning widow who is unable to function  When she feels their bond break. Griogair must carry her as she can't even walk from the scene afterwards.  Will he come back from the dead, and he be the same Munro if he does make it back? I didn't realize it when  I was reading this book, but there is Definitely a theme of lost love, grief, and finding love in this story.  This is also when some of Maia's and Jugo's lethfae abilities start to present themselves to everyone. This is a beautifully haunting story that I definitely recommend you read.

Boomed Lionblaze. "I just wasted my time by sitting and waiting hours and just because of a conversation about feet falling asleep!" "Feet falling asle? Oh!"

what began as a light, free read, led me to this book and all in between. I have enjoyed the characters and can't wait to see what happens next. Each book has shown improvement in writing and character depth in my opinion, this one being the best to date. Although they are not the best I have ever read, they are quite enjoyable and entertaining. I look forward to more adventures with the Queen, her Druid and their child!
