Overview

Scotland, 1328: Conjuring with all of her will.
Ana de Dannon summons the greatest champion of the ages, Cuchulainn, the legendary Irish warrior. Only he could defeat Ana's evil half-brother, Roderick, and free her mother, Rhiannon, from Edinburgh Tower. In a perversely generous gesture - as he knows no man in the land will face him - Roderick has offered to release any prisoner whose champion can defeat him in a tournament.

But the powerful man Ana conjures is not Cuchulainn, though the word Warrior is written on his strange and colorful garment...and his face is hidden beneath a massive helmet. Ana has mistakenly called forth Kenneth MacKinnon, quarterback for the Seattle Warriors, and the greatest champion of his age - the year 2000. But he may be the hero she needs after all, when he learns to do battle for something greater than his own glory - the love of a fair maiden.

During the reign of King Robert the Bruce of Scotland, Ana de Dannon worries about freeing her mother Rhannon. Ana¿s stepbrother Lord Roderick holds Rhannon prisoner. He will only free her in exchange for the Golden Sword that he believes will make him ruler of the country. A desperate Ana performs an incarnation from the Book of Spells that will bring forth the legendary Irish warrior Cuchulainn.

In the current age, Seattle quarterback Kenneth MacKinnon takes a hit from a linebacker. When he awakens he finds himself holding the football near Ana and her Aunt Danu in Stirling Castle. Ana thinks she conjured up Cuchulainn to battle Roderick and liberate her mother. Though he does not consider himself a warrior, Kenneth is brave and intelligent and begins to work on the game plan to free Rhannon. As he does so, he falls in love with Ana who reciprocates his feelings. However, both expect him to return to the future as soon as he completes his mission.

THE QUEST is an entertaining time travel romantic fantasy that will provide much pleasure to readers. The story line is filled with medieval pageantry and treachery augmented by Kenneth¿s confusion as he wonders if he took one hit too many. Fans of fantasy and romance will fully relish Pam Binder¿s spellbinding tale.
