"You met him in the Order of the Dragon Knights. Now, journey to the realm of the Fae and witness their greatest legend!"

As leader of the Fenian Warriors, Aidan Kerrigan's accolades are many and his loyalty to the Fae unwavering. When an unexpected mission sends him to the human world and a chance encounter with Rose MacLaren, he's tempted for the first time in his existence to discard duty and claim what is forbidden.

Rose MacLaren, a Society of the Thistle member, yearns to expand her botanical knowledge with her love of history. After her rescue by a handsome stranger, she is compelled to look beyond what her rational mind comprehends and unravel the secret of the standing stones, as well as the man who captivates her.

In a mystical world ruled by ancient laws and edicts, can a fierce warrior choose a path destined for love? And will a woman honoring the ways of the land believe in a myth only spoken of in legends? If they do, will their love be enough to defy death's punishment?

Aidan Kerrigan’s moral compass leads his every thought, feeling and emotion. As the leader of the Fenian Warriors, he has a responsibility to be an example to those men he mentors. There is no space for emotion, yet alone love. But when a situation surfaces, he’ll have to use every ounce of willpower to resist the alluring beauty Rose MacLaren, a Society of the Thistle member. What she uncovers will change both fae and human realms forever. Aiden pushes away her advances but in a moment of clarity, he realizes his destiny is walking through life with Rose. Will she accept him as the man he is and will she wait for him when he sacrifices all for her love? I have read snippets of Aiden’s and Rose’s love story in past books and I was so excited when Mary Morgan told me she’d written their story. I had high expectations and was interested in how the story would play out. I was not disappointed. In fact, I truly believe this is Mary Morgan’s best book to date. Continuity is a huge thing for me, especially when it comes to a series. I remember certain details from previous books and in Destiny of a Warrior, these threads are woven throughout the story. Even small details are brought forward with more clarity in this book. Well done, Mary Morgan! The reason why I say this is the best book of Mary Morgan’s career is the emotional attachment the reader feels for the characters. There are several obstacles which Aiden and Rose have to overcome before they can be together. Aiden must open his heart to the possibility of love while Rose must open her spirit to the magic within Aiden. The struggle is real within them both and there were times I cried aloud for them to confess their true feelings for one another. There’s one scene where Rose is close to breaking down, her heart split open and anguish pouring out, where I hugged my tablet and wept with her. The emotion coming from the words written pierced my soul and I let my emotions take over. This reaction is a rare one for me and I applaud Mary Morgan for an excellently written story. If you’re looking to be transported to Scotland and Ireland, complete with a magical love story and one act of defiance which will shake the Fae realm for years to come, pick up Destiny of a Warrior today. Highly recommend! Favorite Character/Quote: “Rose was his land—his home. A part of him fractured with the realization. When did his world tilt off its axis? There was no firm compass anymore. No sure direction, save one. Rose.” My Rating: 5 stars

Aidan Kerrigan is the leader of the Fenian Warriors and his loyalty to the Fae is unwavering but an unexpected mission in the human world and a chance encounter with Rose MacLaren is tempting him to discard duty and claim what is forbidden. She is compelled to look beyond what her rational mind comprehends and unravel the secret of the standing stones, as well as the man who captivates her. This heartfelt fantasy romance is the stuff fantasies are made of and has readers sighing in envy and delight. The characters are strong and obviously belong together as Aidan and Rose defy death itself to claim his happily ever after. The romance is sweet, fulfilling and a true love story that captures the essence of romance - the true heart of romance. This steady paced plot keeps readers glued to the pages as it transport readers to a magical world. The story is full of passion as Aidan and Rose get to know each other but readers can also feel the expectation of what is to come as the relationship is forbidden. This story is a delightfully charming read and so engaging that the world outside the book ceases to exist for the reader during this wonderful romance.

Sometimes you must go back to the past to clearly understand the events of the present. Mary Morgan’s Destiny of a Warrior is an excellent example of this very thing Not so much the distance past, just to the year 1986. This is well before the time of Aileen, the heroine of Dragon's Knight's Medallion, her story or her travels but yet she is a part of this one too. This is of course, Rose McLaren’s and Aidan Kerrigan’s story of loyalty, duty, sacrifice and love. One book is not dependent on the other but I dare anyone to read one without wanting to read the other. Well, Mary Morgan has outdone herself with this true gem of a story. A great love story that will stick with you long after the last page is finished. With it also comes warnings and wisdom, such as, “With love comes pain, regardless of the great joy,” or “Power is fleeting. Love is everlasting.” Rose and Aiden, you will not be forgotten. An ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher through Net Galley which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A love story that rivals the best! It plucked all my heartstrings. The story captures the light of love, its purity of heart and its strength to endure when all appears lost. By following their hearts, Rose and Adrian must overcome unsurmountable dictates of the Realm. If you have been following Mary Morgan’s two series, Destiny of a Warrior will encourage another go-around reading both. Morgan’s world building puts you in the thick of things—caught between the Fae Realm and earth. It’s fast-paced with snappy dialogue, and rich scenes making her world so believable, it is no longer fantasy. Rose MacLaren is a determined, intelligent character with her feet on the ground and her mind searching for aliens who might be among us. She also has seizures which produce visions she can’t make sense of. Rose belongs to a society of women learning about herbs used in the past which brings her very close to a dig she gets to see, while her sister takes plenty of pictures. This is Rose’s opportunity to pursue a theory she has involving some etching she saw on one of the stones in a stone circle. Could it be more than etchings, perhaps the ancient writing Ogham? Travel between realms with Adrian, a Fenian Warrior and Fae, to Scotland and Ireland discovering his destiny in the arms of Rose MacLaren. You will be in the depths of despair when the Fenian Warrior breaks Fae rules. Love is paramount and punishment must be endured. Make sure to add tissues to your grocery list. You will empty a box in sympathy for their plight. And I loved every minute!
