All that happened in other books Back to the storm and edane going up the mag Raith found that in storms they can fly to so they can fight the Sluath .

When he goes on patrol during a storm guarding against their enemy the Sluath. He goes to the rescue of who he thinks is a young lad, only to realize that it's a woman. Immediately, Nellie Quinn is drawn to the man who saved her life. With no memory of her past she's determined to leave as soon as possibly, because of the danger she feels at the ruins of the castle the Mag Raith have moved into and started rebuilding.

The chieftain's wife realizes what era Nellie comes from. Edane believes Nellie's story and defends her against Kiaran. Kiaran catches Nellie trying to leave them and chases her only to have her safe his life. The Mag Raith use another clansman's gift to get the truth from Nellie.

Edane follows the next day and finds her at where a former village was. The clan thought that they'd had a sickness and died off and left.

As a storm start to move in Edane and Nellie share another memory of the underworld and how they met. The third book in the Mag Raith series has the clan's shaman/archer finding the woman that he was given to in the underworld and trying to convince her that she's safe with them. A woman from 1920's America is hiding her true self and only wants to get away from the danger and the death associated with the castle. Can he make her see that the love they share can be forever? Who's the watcher and why doesn't he want the newest member of the clan around? Can they live in peace together or will the Sluath find them. What other traps and revelations are in store for the clan Mag Raith? I look forward to finding out as the stories continue in these unique takes on a historical, time travel, paranormal story all in one.
The story of Edane and Nellie is a compelling, page-turning book. Nellie seems to be a bit unlikeable at the beginning of the story, is she actually a useless, lying flapper, or is it all a ruse to protect herself. Is Edane damned to endless suffering for his perceived past sins? The storylines of Iolar, Galan, and Cul are advanced further. We also get to enjoy all our favorite characters from earlier books in the series. You would think with each story following a general theme; it might get old. Absolutely not, each story is unique and entertaining. Edane is a worthy entry into Hazel Hunter’s Mag Raith series.
