Blurb:

He, Arthur, is a reflection of luck, an abomination. He can feel the love, the pain, the sorrow, and the joy of all the ages. If he doesn't save the Druid he is sent to find, all known history could change. Some things are worth dying for. But first a man must live.

Arthur didn't count on becoming human. And now the fairies want him to break dragon law... He never expected his charge to push him to the edge of reason. But a man must live before becoming king.

Fear not. The fairies have a plan.

Trust not the fairies.

Druids wed one soul for eternity to protect the integrity of the timeline. Druid Solas's soul mate was taken from her. Now, an 11th Century Irish bishop stalks her to serve as his mistress. She has nothing left yet everything to live for in creating the historical maps she was sent through time to make. She will break time-travel Code if she submits to another man by allowing even one paradoxical child to muddy history. Then Arthur arrives to save her. He is anything but a time guardian. And a fairy tells her to help him. To ignore a god's instruction could prove detrimental. Yet, every time guardian knows believing the Gods is wielding a double-edged sword. Since it is forbidden for Druids to wield weapons, her future relies on He of the Fiery Sword.

King Arthur is born.

Meet the Author

Educated in geology and anthropology, writing lured Skhye away from finishing her thesis in (bioarchaeology) anthropology. Aside from muscled men in fur, leather, denim, and kilts, Skhye loves cultural ecology, cultural evolution, cultural relativism, and natural processes. Big ideas. Simple concepts that manifest in world building to crazy people like Skhye who studied anthropology and geology before turning to writing romantic fiction. Her rule of thumb is to love the good, the bad, and the ugly of every culture in her tales so that every culture in her tales and every aspect of her stories resonates as real as possible. And yes, she's "certifiably" geek.

I love tony hillerman books and mysteries. A friend recommended 'he of the fiery sword' and i am delighted i ordered it. Don't think it is just another romance. When i settled down with the book, i thought i had the plot figured out within the first few chapters. Well, i was wrong. This story has it all shape-shifters, magic, time travel, celtic legends and myths and the most unusual hero. Just a good read

He of the Fiery Sword is an outstanding book with a new twist on King Arthur. From the very first chapter I was hooked. I am an older woman and usually read books by Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter Carol, so this was a very different kind of book for me. The concept of a dragon changing form and all the new feelings and experiences he had was totally thought provoking. I felt his pain and his joy and I laughed and cried right along with him. It was incredible and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. I would recommend this book to all ages.

I agree a different twist of King Arthur, but was VERY wordy, with not much happening a lot, and I got bored. Would like to know more about the ending for these two. The storyline was unique, just should have been shorter, and maybe added more of an ending. Read the next one in the series, thinking more on Arthur/Solas, but zilch. Loved Swordsong the best then Naked on the Staircase - both of much better than this one. The first in this series, Sacrifical Hearts was o.k., didn't care for Twila's character. Ljb

He of the Fiery Sword is an unusual and intriguing spin on the Arthurian legend. Ms. Moncrief has done a fantastic job of world building. The pictures she painted really made me feel part of the story. Her characters are equally well depicted. Arthur is a masterpiece. Watching him struggle to retain something of his dragon ways while trying to be as human as possible had me laughing and crying. And finding love just as he thinks his life is about to end? That was heartbreaking. Overall, I found He of the Fiery Sword to be one of those unexpected but happy to find reads. It was definitely what I would call a "different" story. Anyone who likes fantasy worlds and romance mixed with myth and legend should run right out and pick this one up. ~Diane Mason, The Romance Studio
