Dragon Knight´s Axe. by Mary Morgan. My ARC Review.





Alastair MacKay, a battle 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 fears.
Research assistant ,Fiona O´Quinlan loves translating ancient artifactsat Trinity College. When she falls asleep on an archeoligical 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 it´s Axe , leaving them lost for all eternity?

Another wonderful story from the Dragon Knights series. The third book, it can be read as a stand alone, but contains spoilers for the first two.
Alastair MacKay has been punishing himself and denying his powers, since the death of his sister. His power is of the earth ,so he took to the sea as a trader. He and his crew are in port on the eastern side of Ireland when he saves a young woman from slavery. That act has committed him to return her to the family who share her name but she denies having.
Fiona O ´Quinlan fell asleep in 2015 at an archeological dig, and woke up in a very different time. 800 years in the past. Her confusion leads to her being captured by slavers.
Fiona has always been a bit of a misfit in her own time. She suffers from nightmares and has an unusual affinity with animals.
The more time Alastair spends on the land , and in Fiona´s company , the more trouble he has controlling the surge of power within him. He must not claim the power he feels he is not worthy of.
A great, magical adventure through the wilds of Ireland and the Scottish Highlands. With a typical modern ,independent woman and a tortured hero. They face a maniacal Laird , and must deal with Druids and the Fae. We meet up with the other MacKay brothers and their families. We still have another brother to meet . So our wonderful ,talented author needs to write quickly.

                                                              


I am a constant daydreamer and have been told quite often to remove my head from the clouds. Yet ,this is where I find the magic to write my stories. Not only do I love to weave a good tale, but I have a voracious appetite for reading.I worked for Border Books for almost fourteen years  Imagine my delight to be surrounded by so many book, talking to others about them , and getting paid. Pure bliss!!
I have travelled to England ,Scotland ;Ireland ,and France. There are those who know me well when I say " My heart is in the Highlands" I believe I have left it there, or maybe in Ireland.
When not writing , I enjoy playing in my garden--another place where magic grows. Of course, there is time spent with my family. They are the ones who keep me grounded.
