Dragon Knight's Sword
By 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.
Between The Pages
Ms. Morgan does a seamless job of mixing historical, paranormal, fantasy, and time travel. The setting drops you into 1204 Scotland where knights, faes, druids, and a dragon rule the pages. The historical details are interesting. The main characters are engaging and a large cast of secondary characters keep the reader entertained. There are several points of view throughout the story, which were slightly distracting. Pacing is good in the beginning, but slows in the middle; making the reader anxious for the action they know is coming. When the action does arrive, the story moves along at a great pace, leaving the reader satisfied to the end. This is book one in the Order of the Dragon Knights Series. I look forward to reading more of this series.
