I hoped for a story, but got a historical discussion that was intended to support the sale of the author's novels. It is a Sales brochure .

Religion, Power, Corruption. This is a companion book to the Celtic Legends Collection by Ms Boone, all of which feature a bit of history and legend. This book gives some more detail of the conflicts between the English Crown and Scotland and Ireland. Whilst it is described as a book that you can ‘jump around’ via the table of contents I think it works best reading the chapters in order as they are, more or less, chronological. So many wars have been fought throughout the world over religion, or in order to gain (and retain) power; and the history of Britain is no exception. Power leads to corruption and it is the common people, without rights or wealth who suffer. I found this book rather depressing as there was so much of man’s inhumanity to man within it’s covers with little light relief. I like to escape from the world’s troubles into literature but this book reminds you that in the present in which we live, we don’t seem to learn from history and man’s basic nature never seems to change. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

First off I love how the author begins the book with information on folklore and wars fought and the struggles of people from the past. It's a great lead in to the story. And while I am not a big fan of historical reads I did enjoy the lesson. Lesson, that's what the entire book is about. Throughout history those small tidbits are lost and only found by those interested enough to care or those who want accuracy in their novels. This are great stories and the author makes it easy for you to jump around if you do not want to read each story. Each chapter has historical recounts with additional little known facts and stories about the leaders known and not so known. Very little is left out since she includes historic Ireland and Scotland with the Celtic heroes, outlaws, royalty, clans all of it along with songs and recipes from the past make this an excellent addition to your library.

Loved how easy and entertaining this was to read! I'm a fan of Ms. Boone's Celtic Legends books plus Outlander and a lot of books set in Scotland and Ireland, so it's great to get a sense of the big picture. What's even better is that this doesn't feel too "big". With the focus on Rob Roy and the heroes and schemers behind-the-scenes, it feels like a really great story or a personal chat i'm getting to have with the author. Absolutely wonderful!
