Series: Order of the Dragon Knights
Author: Mary Morgan
Duncan Mackay will do anything to lift the curse from his family — even forfeit his own life. But his plans change when he encounters the woman from his dreams, literally. She is from the future, somehow has his lost sword, and can talk to the Dragon that is able to lift his family’s curse. Brigid O’Neill has spent her life listening to the mythological legends from Ireland and Scotland. So, when an ancient sword lands at her doorstep and she starts dreaming of a rugged Highlander, she drops everything and takes on a quest that will alter everything she believes. Before their journey ends, not only will Duncan and Brigid battle an ancient curse, they must also find the courage to believe in the destiny that brought them together.
Hath no fury like the wrath of a Dragon Knight. This was my first thought when I read the last page of A Dragon Knight’s Sword. This was the debut novel of Mary Morgan and I hope there is more to come. I was hooked from page one. Mary wrote in such detail the history of the thirteenth century that those of us who weren’t familiar with that time weren’t left wondering what everything meant. We were given the understanding of the fae, the druid, what a Fenian warrior was and the history of a clan.
The story of Duncan Mackay and Brigid O’Neill was one of love and healing. It showed how love can heal all wounds no matter how deep. It made you believe that love can travel through time and unite soulmates.
The addition of the story of “Nessie” the Loch Ness being a dragon and a magical one at that was one I hadn’t heard and very educational.
Seeing a big, bad and hardened Highlander like Duncan Mackay succumb to the sassy, stubborn and sharp-tongue Brigid O’Neill was one of laughter and sadness. To see the torment that Duncan had to go through in order to heal and to accept the love that he so deserved was so well written that I was left in tears when the last page was turned.
Hands down the best time travel/historical I’ve read and can’t wait to read the story of the next Mackay brother.
