Fenian Warrior Rory MacGregor sits in a cell awaiting his trial in front of the Fae Council plagued not by what his future may hold but by his past. His torturous soul won’t let him grieve for the death of the only woman he’s ever loved, mortal Erina. He couldn’t save her and allows the shadows to take him over. When his secret is revealed, Rory is commanded by the Prince of the Fae to return to the mortal realm and rectify the timeline. But when he sees his beloved, the timeline shifts. Is this Rory’s second chance at love and saving Erina from death or is history bound to repeat itself? My heart broke so many times while reading Oath of a Warrior. First for Rory and his gut-wrenching pain. Imagine witnessing the death of your beloved and even though you’re a magical being, you were powerless to stop it. You’d want the world to come crashing down and left alone to wallow in your grief. Now imagine you’re given a second chance. This book oozes history and mystical elements with a plot that moves at a quick pace. I couldn’t stop reading this lush story and there was a time or two where I wondered if there could be Fae amongst us. The characters, though, are what makes this a must read. Everyone from Erina to Rory to Garett to Conn and the rest of the Fae leap off the page. Each has their own backstory, feelings and voice. The romantic arc between Erina and Rory makes all the heartbreak worthwhile. If you’re a fan of Outlander, you need to read Oath of a Warrior. It’s a paranormal romance worth reading, even if you’re not a fantasy reader. Just take my advice and keep a box of tissues handy. Favorite Character/Quote: Erina. With her connection to the Earth and her healing abilities, she wove a spell around me. She’s feisty and a little stubborn when it comes to her independence but her heart and willingness to help others makes her a beautiful heroine, both inside and out. My Rating: 5+ stars

My takeaway: You truly don’t know when and where help will seek you out. A Fenian Warrior has a special role in the realm of the Fae. They are to steer a better course for human mortals, yet not alter the timeline of their life strings. The Fenian Warriors has to tread carefully among humans, yet provide guidance without change the timeline. Through thousands of years Rory is able to do so, until he meets Erina in 1605 in Scotland. He did what no Fenian Warrior should do. He fell in love. A Fenian Warrior must never fall in love, let alone, with a human. He hid what was in his heart and continued moving through time doing his duty. His love and denial of it festers, and herein lies his tale, Oath of a Warrior as penned by the talented Mary Morgan. Rory has broken rules again, this time after meeting Erina. He aided the Dragon Knight of Urquhart, along with two other Fenian Warriors. This series is spawned from the previous one, where these three Warriors took it upon themselves to aid the Dragon Knights who travelled a path of redemption. If you haven’t read the series Order of the Dragon Knights you are in for such a treat when you do. I fell in love with Mary Morgan during the reading of that series. And was delighted to find she reconnects us with the Dragon Knights in Legend of the Fenian Warriors. Rory MacGregor is in a real pickle and just has been discovered. He has wronged another. Something Fenian Warrior cannot do and continue to retain their nobility and honor. So he must return through time to correct the wrong which was committed or forever be condemned by the demons he lives with and death from the Brotherhood. His conflict is slowly killing him. He denies his love to Erina and is responsible for her death. But the land of the Fae with their capabilities of traveling through time, Rory is given another chance, to be as a Fenian Warrior should be, and to save the woman he gave his heart to. But can he save Erina from her death, burnt as a witch, while keeping his heart unattached the second time? Morgan’s world building floats the reader in a magical world, fantasy, yet not. Her characters are so fleshed-out, I could touch them. Her scenes are descriptive—some being very emotional which put me to tears. Even in this second reading, I enjoyed the story to the maximum. I adore how the story is laid out. Morgan is a master at bringing all the elements together and keeping the reader with her at every step. A marvelous author to add to your reading enjoyment!

This was a great, well-written book. Erina works with herbs to help heal others and creates love charms. Rory is a Fenian Warrior who has never forgotten Erina. He returns to her time, and Erina is confused to find something familiar about him. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading others by this author.

Enchanting! Mary Morgan has a gift. With her words she paints visions. Absolutely enchanting... Rory MacGregor is a Fenian Warrior, a fae. At the start of this story he is in agony. He didn't mean to but he fell in love with a human woman, a healer who he failed to rescue from dying, burned at the stake as a witch. He's in a Fae prison, the Room of Reflection, to ponder and prepare for his trial before the Fae Council. He's about to slip into the Realm of Sorrows, trapped in his misery to become a shadow of his former self, over his dead love Erina MacInfyre. His Prince and fellow warrior Conn MacRoich, makes him face his failure by returning him to live the time again to resolve the pain. But Conn soon realizes the thread of time has been changed and we wonder will history be changed? Erina is a healer trained by her Grandmother Aelish, after her mother Angelica died in childbirth. She has vast knowledge of herbs to heal and she also makes some love charms for those seeking to draw anther. Her only motives are love for her fellows. The problem is this is a time of suspicion and religion that shifts with the various ruling kings. Erina believes in the old religion and practices what some in their ignorance and fear believe is witchcraft. Her half brother Laird Graham, takes her back to his keep to keep her safe. Unfortunately that is not enough. She is stolen away and Graham and Rory must find her and rescue her before she is killed. I cannot say enough about how rich Mary's stories are. I have pictures in my mind of the Fae realm painted by Mary's skilled use of words. Thank you Mary for the gift of this book. I will cherish this story. Second chance at love and guardian-protector heroes are my favorite storylines. This review is freely and honestly given and not requested by the author.
