Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Laird Lachlan MacRath, known as the Sorcerer of the Seas, is a highly successful pirate who along with his brothers has been harassing English and Dutch ships for ten years. He is so successful that he is thought to have the powers of a wizard. Now the official Highland representative of Scotland’s King James IV, Lachlan is part of a delegation accompanying Princess Mary Tudor north to wed the Scottish king. Widowed Lady Francine Walsingham is a member of the English group on the journey. Both Francine and Lachlan are highly intelligent and multitalented, and they share an immediate attraction. Before too long, they are lovers. Plotting against them is the evil Lord Lychester, who has loved Francine since they were children and is responsible for a number of horrific plots, a rape, and a murder, all intended to make Francine his wife. There are also plans afoot to block the marriage of James and Mary for political reasons. Harrington creates intriguing characters while effortlessly incorporating historical information to add flavor. Interestingly, Francine’s main objection to committing to Lachlan stems from her belief that her feelings for him are manufactured by a spell he has cast, reminding readers that witchcraft was alive and well in the early 16th century.

Verdict A solid blend of multiple plot threads, interesting background characters, and protagonists one can invest in will leave readers looking forward to the last title in the trilogy.—B. Allison Gray, Santa Barbara P.L., Goleta Branch, CA
