Overview

Historical fantasy set against the backdrop of WW1.

For seventeen years, the convent walls kept Meara Cleary from the secret of her own parentage. A bearded stranger claims she's his niece and promises to take her home. Before he can, a cataclysmic event thrusts her into a war-torn world.

Meara vows to journey to Ireland to find her uncle, unaware of how perilous a journey it will be. Her Druidic father guides her through dreams, explaining her magical heritage. Her dead parent can't help her with the intricacies of village life, especially when she catches the eye of the very engaged Braeden Douglas.

A whirlwind composed of equal parts menace, romance, and revelation sweep Meara across the continent while gathering allies and enemies with equal speed. Her intent to return to her family turns into a fight to survive her own destiny.

About the Author

Rayna Noire is an author and a historian. The desire to uncover the truth behind the original fear of witches led her to the surprising discovery that people believed in magick in some form up to 150 years ago. A world that believed the impossible could happen and often did must have been amazing. With this in mind, Ms. Noire taps into this dimension, shapes it into stories about Pagan families who really aren't that different from most people. They do go on the occasional adventures and magick happens.

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books. The blurb for this story promised a great read. It promised to be interesting, keep you intrigued, and make you want to continue reading. It met all those things but barely. The storyline was a good story line and it provided an interesting read. The details and descriptions were a little too much. While I appreciate great details and descriptions to make it easy to picture what’s going on, there is a point of too much detail. Sadly, I feel this book falls into this category. There is a point of losing me with so much detail and making me second guess what I am reading. When I would start really getting immersed into the story, there would be something that would be over analyzed or over detailed and I would have to pause and figure out what exactly was going on and what was the main point, not just the supporting points. These details also led to the book being a slow read. It didn’t seem to pass quickly as I read and I felt like time was just dragging. These two major setbacks aside, I really enjoyed the book and the story. I think the idea behind the story line was brilliant but it could just use a little more finesse. I think the author has the ability to write absolutely stunning books in the future, so long as she limits some detail and descriptions. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
