This is Aidan Kerrigan and Rose MacLaren’s story and Mary Morgan has brought us back in time when it all began. Aidan and Rose have appeared in previous books and I like others waited for their story to be told, a love story for the ages.
Aidan is the Supreme Leader over the Brotherhood of the Fenian Warriors and his powers are equal to the Fae King. His love and loyalty to his people is unwavering and beyond question but when he is ordered to visit the human realm in the 20th century and uncover what is happening with the Standing Stones of Corridon, a secret that if revealed could reveal the existence of the Fae he has no idea that it would have him question everything he ever believed in.
Rose is a member of the Society of the Thistle and her interests lie in botany and history and when archaeologists begin to study the Standing Stones she can’t contain her interest and without question her interest is the one that could reveal ancient secrets best left hidden. Aidan had no idea when he was sent and told he would be meeting a human that the human in question would awaken emotions he thought long buried.
The relationship between Aidan and Rose grows with her having no idea whatsoever that he is an ancient Fae and would have the answers she has always been seeking. She believes totally in the existence of others, it is inconceivable to her that only humans could exist in the world and she has no idea that the man she is spending time with is one of those others.
This is such a beautiful love story but it is a love story that brings with it consequences, it is forbidden for a Fae to be with a human but Aidan’s heart is the only thing he is listening to, no matter what his head tells him and no matter what he will face when he is discovered. What Aidan faces is not something I will discuss but I couldn’t put this book down until I had all the answers. What he would suffer and what would happen between him and the woman he was willing to give up everything for is definitely worth the price of admission.
I loved every book in this series and highly recommend it.
