    This book is an exciting, intriguing, suspenseful, historical adventure!! This book is filled with engaging, realistic historical content that drives the story line and provides captivating, easy to picture details!! I was very intrigued to find a book filled with historical and fantasy content on the same page. This definitely made the book thought-provoking, compelling, and fascinating! One of the best features of this book is the significant amount of accurate, intriguing Scottish Highlands time-period detail that the author weaved into this book. It is no wonder the author has a Master’s Degree in Highlands History and is well-versed in the culture and customs that she was able to provide such cohesive knowledge and references in her writing. This book has strong world building, stimulating and suspenseful fight scenes, thrilling drama, stirring vengeance, interesting characters – and offers the reader an enjoyable, steady paced read! There are some predictable scenes. However, there are still a few very unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming! This book is book one of this new book series. This book can absolutely be read as a standalone. All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it! I think all historical, fantasy readers will like this book too! So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed! **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations.**
