I loved the trilogy. It was a page-turner and was better than what I was expecting. I learned about a period in time while being entertained. Can't beat that.

I enjoyed this book and the Dawn stag because of the portrayl of Celtic life and their beliefs. This book was a reason for me to study the Celtic people.

This book is a deeply touching story about redemption, growth, and finding that underneath all our faults and scars there is a soul worth loving. The romantic tension is incredibly pulling with a mix of frustrated anger, hopeful longing, and the discovery that you're true love is not always what you are looking for. I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a powerful, stirring and redemning read of historical fantasy, of love, and of overcoming fear.

I literally could not put this book down. The way Jules Watson blends Scotland's ancient cultures and the characters is masterful, and I just cannot wait for the second one.

In 79 A.D. Alba remains one of the last British keeps not controlled by the Roman invaders. However, the Epidii People of the Horse tribe are very concerned over losing their freedom as King Brude has just died. Attending the regal funeral is exiled Irish Prince Eremon. The tribe sees his arrival as a positive omen because he can lead while also begetting the blood heir by marrying Brude's priestess sister Rhiann. He accepts seeing this as a springboard to regaining what he lost due to treachery she struggles with marrying anyone having been abused by raiders and unable to handle being touched................. Eremon knows he must unite the tribes if they are to keep the Romans out of their somewhat isolated land. Most of the leaders of the tribes cannot see the threat from the invaders so ignore his efforts to unite before Governor-General Agricola spreads Britannia¿s rule into the north. Rhiann agrees with her new husband¿s assessment, but has her own problems with Druid rivals and his desire to make her pregnant............. This is a terrific ancient historical fiction tale that brings to life Scotland (Alba) in the first century as the Romans are strengthening their hold on the Britannia. The story line is filled with picturesque action that brings to life the detail of the era. At the same time the lead couple seems genuine as they have marital problems, Roman and Druid issues, and his hidden agenda to defeat the uncle who dethroned him. Fans will appreciate this powerful look 79 AD Scotland....... Harriet Klausner

An amazing collection of characters and an entertaining plotline fuels this romantic adventure you can't put down. You not only find your self in love with the main characters, but you are routing for the supporting characters as well. This historical Celtic tale is wrapped up in mystery, deceit, love, hate, action and drama. I finished it in just three days and I am counting down till the second Dalraida installation comes out next summer. I loved the book and have recommended it to friends, co-workers, and even bought it for my mother.

I couldn't put this one down. There was a great mix of action and romance, fighting, and sex. For those who love historical novels or those who like Celtic themes, druid/goddess lore, this is not to be missed. All the characters are interesting and you want to know more. The pace of the action is good. Can't wait for the next installment.
