A warrior fighting his destiny.

A woman desperately seeking hers.

A magic portal that joins them both.


Arlan, warrior son of the High King, lives in Dál Gaedhle, a world of warriors, magic and recently reawakened dragons.
He is certain to become the war chief of his clan.

Destiny seems to ignore Arlan's desire to forge his own path in life.

Adopted as a baby and orphaned as a young adult, Scottish librarian, Rhiannon, is now adrift after losing her job due to economic cuts and lives a second-rate life, feeling more out of place than ever in our world.

Destiny seems to ignore Rhiannon's dream to find her true purpose.

When Arlan bursts into her world through a portal, an awesome warrior on his war horse and brandishing weapons, he turns her existence up-side-down.

With his world on the brink of war, and Rhiannon challenging his attitudes, Arlan struggles to choose between his growing feelings for Rhiannon and his responsibilities to his people.

Rhiannon doesn't want Arlan to leave. He understands her on a level no one else ever has.
But is her desire to fight beside him in his world even possible?

Will destiny be on their side?
