Keeper of the Light based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
In 400 CE Ireland, The King¿s Champion Donail accompanied by his soldiers visits the standing circle where the healer Rioghan allegedly lives. Donail wants Rioghan to help an ailing woman. At first she wants to refuse him because men are avaricious and would seek to steal the treasure of the Sidhe, the Little People of ancient Eire that she lives near and protects. However, Donail seems honorable. Donail wants Rioghan and begins a courtship to win her trust. However, a spell is cast on Donail that places Rioghan in a bind. If she intercedes she must do so with dark forbidden magic to save her beloved, but if she does not, he will remain lost to her and to himself forever inside the enchantment. Her friends the Sidhe plead with Rioghan to trust in the cleanest purest magic of them all love rather than giving up as THE KEEPER OF THE LIGHT for the dark side. This enjoyable paranormal historical romance acts like a roller coaster going slowly up the first incline before picking up speed. This enables the audience to better understand the heroine who is much more comfortable with Little People than she is with her own people. Donail¿s courting of Rioghan is fun to observe, but he fails to show the fire of a warrior when his beloved is threatened. Still fans of Janeen O¿Kerry or the sub-genre will rate highly KEEPER OF THE LIGHT. Harriet Klausner
