Series: Order of the Dragon Knights, Book 3
Author: Mary Morgan
Genre: Time Travel
Blurb: Alastair MacKay, a battled-scarred Dragon Knight flees to the sea to separate himself from his fae-given power connecting him to the land. But it is on land that he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland. It is through Fiona he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic—taking on the role of protector and at the same time leading him on a journey to confront his greatest regret and fears. Research assistant, Fiona O’Quinlan loves translating ancient artifacts at Trinity College. When she falls asleep on an archeological dig, she awakens in another time. She soon discovers a Dragon Knight’s relic has been entrusted into her care. Determined to return the artifact to the Great Glen, Fiona is unprepared for the danger ahead—losing her heart and soul to Alastair “Beast” MacKay. Will their love be strong enough to soothe the beast and heal the man? Or will Death swing its axe, leaving them lost for all eternity?
Thoughts: Dragon Knight’s Axe is the third book in the Order of the Dragon Knights by Mary Morgan.
As with the first two books in the series Dragon Knight’s Sword and Dragon Knight’s Medallion this is a story of forgiveness, redemption and love that transcends time. It follows another of the MacKay brothers who were the last remaining dragon’s protector and guardian. They were born with mystical powers that were part of their fae heritage. They were also chosen to protect Holy Relics.
I fell in love with the MacKay brothers when I was first introduced to them in the story of Duncan MacKay.
In Dragon Knight’s Axe we are introduced to Alastair MacKay, the most powerful of the brothers, as he had the power to control the land. The holy relic that he was chosen to protect was the axe.
This third installment is the story of Alastair and Fiona. As with the previous heroines, Fiona is feisty, stubborn, brave and the key to unlocking Alastair’s pain enough to where he can find forgiveness within himself which will allow him to finally heal.
We once again get the knowledge of Druid, visited by the famous Fenian Warrior and get to visit the most beautiful dragon “Nessy”.
The book takes you on emotional roller coaster. I found it a little darker than the other two because I found Alastair to have a more tortured soul and needed to overcome more in order to find forgiveness and redemption.
The love between Alastair and Fiona was one that had to be fought for but one that transcended time.
I love this series and am looking forward to the next book.
