Overview

Two thousand years ago, Rhys was the fierce Celtic warrior branded by the Romans as the Bringer of Death. Mortally wounded in battle, he was captured by the Fair Ones, cunning and powerful masters of the Welsh faery realm. They spared his life,…but for a price.

As a child, Morgan Edwards marveled at the faery tales spun by her beloved grandmother, stories of the magical beings hidden in the heart of ancient Wales. But now Morgan is all grown up, a veterinarian who believes only in what science can prove — until the night a massive black dog saves her from a vicious attack. Suddenly a stranger stands before her, the man of her dreams made flesh and blood, not by science, but by a magic that could bring them their hearts’ desires…or cost them everything they have.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Wonder touches Spokane Valley, Wash., and the life of veterinarian Morgan Edwards in Harper’s beautifully narrated foray into Celtic myth and legend. While realizing a lifelong dream of visiting Wales, the land of her ancestors, Morgan unknowingly sets in motion events that change her life. The adventures follow her home in the form of Rhys, a mysterious man who’s been under a curse since Roman times. Morgan must depend on words of wisdom from her past as she navigates the unknown paths of love and faith, and as she fights for her life. Rich with detail and accessible explanations of lore, the events unfold naturally. The romantic elements are slightly outweighed by the paranormal aspects, though the result is immensely satisfying with just a hint of spice. Harper (Changeling Moon) provides excellent texture and depth with a touch of sincere empathy for animals, rounding out an already excellent novel. Agent: Stephany Evans, FinePrint Literary Management. (Aug.)

I loved this book. It flowed so smoothly and just pulled you into the story so you felt like you where the characters. And what characters they were to. I loved Leo and Ranyon. Leo's a sweet old man who helps Rhys' out of a jam and becomes one of Rhys' best friends. Ranyon is an Ellyll a kind of a tree-type/Brownie creature that takes up residence in Leo's shed. Love the little gut he is so funny and can make a charm for just about anything. I loved how he set a charm on Leo's house that cleaned up his kitchen and totally flabbergast Leo to the point he has to back something and dirty it up so he feels comfortable in the room again because it's to clean. LOL I need a Ranyon in my life. The main characters are actually Rhys' and Morgan. Rhys' is a Grimm and he was sent to remove Morgan because she's seen as a threat to the fairies due to her grandmother being friends with the fairy queen. Morgan is a veterinarian who comes across Rhys while he is in Grimm form and thinks he is just a really big sweet dog that seems to be following her. I liked both of them and it was nice that their relationship slowly built up rather then the typical love at first sight sex at second. This is a great first book to begin a series with. Great writing and believable world building. Good job Ms. Harper. Was not given this book to review. I just caught my eye and I choose to write one. I highly recommend this book up for reading. It's a fun read. L.

I was enamored, engulfed and enthralled! With this book, Dani has become a must-read author for me. OMG... An ancient brave celtic warrior, horribly tortured for centuries, finds true love and freedom! Add in Celtic folklore, Renaissance fairs, dogs, horses, a feisty veterinarian, the Fae and romance! Combine quirky characters, both magical and not, great twists, funny dialogue, and PASSION and I'm totally hooked!  I love my Highlanders and Rhys ROCKS! He is one hot dude! His brogue melted my heart. Dr. Morgan Edwards is our heroine and I wanted to shake her through much of the book because she didn't just fall at Rhys feet. But I can't stay frustrated with a veterinarian who is totally devoted to her animals. No spoilers, but the ending is fabulous. There's no cliff-hanger either (Thank you, Dani! I hate cliff-hangers!)  Bottomline: I was enamored, engulfed and enthralled! With this book, Dani has become a must-read author for me. 5 stars!

Fantastic magical world! I have just finished reading a magic paranormal fiction STORM WARRIOR of the Grim Series, written by Dani Harper. It's a magical world filled with fairies and strange creatures! It is the story of Morgan, a veterinarian and Rhys, a Celt warrior. It begins when Morgan is attacked and save by a great mastiff! Rhys had been a Celtic warrior, turned by force as a gladiator, then turned into a Grim. Morgan discovers that she has royal blood and will be protected by Rhys against some bad creatures. It is a beautiful paranormal fiction with characters such as The Fair Ones, The Tylwyth Teg. It is fast paced, well written and an enchanting story to read. This is the first book that I read by Ms. Harper and I am looking forward to read her next book. It is a fantasy delight in a magical world. Dani Harper is a great storyteller. I could not put it down. It kept my interest until the end. I can say it is also a time-travel. The plot was well developed! What can I say , I really enjoyed reading this fantastic story!
