Top review from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The only thing that I was disappointed in was where did the younger son of Dall end up they didn't explain that bit when they went many years ahead.
But all in all a very beautiful read even with typos can't wait to read the next books in the series. They you feel like you were there and part of the adventures and the clans.

Druids are simply portrayed as controlling bad guys without any rhyme or reason. Any comparison to Outlander is a joke.
I can see where it would be an entertaining read for a young adult and I did enjoy the originality and twists and turns.
However, I felt like something deeper was missing - too many times it only skimmed the surface or lacked background explanations.
Yes, there are hotties or sigh, braw Highland warriors and two clueless girlfriends just out of college looking for some fun and income for the summer via their shared fascination with medieval Scotland. So they take a job at a Renaissance Faire.
I can't say that it was a bad read, it had plenty of good substories which, if developed further, would have made a great book.
The book is in two parts portraying two girlfriends who fall in love with 1540 era Scottish clansmen. These clansmen were sworn to serve Druids who require the clansmen to hold Renaissance Fairs to earn money for the Druids. There is much intentional time traveling back and forth between modern day and ancient Scotland, by way of a Druid time travel app on a cell phone, along with traveling around from place to place in the same time period.
Language from the Scottish characters give some token "ayes and nays" and some Scottish phrases, but in general the verbal exchanges were more modern.
All in all, while action packed, pretty unbelievable, and not a prayer of being anywhere close to Outlander.
Why do I love this series and this boxed set? It's an excellent form of escapism! It takes me away from life's troubles and worries so that blood pressure doesn't fly through the roof... The stories are very well written so that you feel that you are transported in time along with the characters - isn't that a wonderful thing? The sights, sounds, and even smells give you a feeling of being in a far back time in a far away place. The characters are real in that they are not perfect - they have worries, fears, dangers, etc... and they do laugh and love! They are people we get to know and love - and they remind us of people we know. There is excitement!
This is a time travel fantasy with romance... and we have the ancient druids as well as modern technology since they DO travel back and forth. I love this set (as well as others out there) - there is no need to "nitpick" everything to death! Remember, this is a fantasy with romance, history, battles, etc! I believe the author has given us a nice saga that is unique and clean to read. I feel the how the story is written works - and it's clever how everything fits in together for an enjoyable read.
If you want to escape to a simpler yet wilder time with rugged people, you will enjoy this! If you want to see modern women rise to the occasion and discover that they had more in them than they had expected - you will love this set AND the series! Read this set for yourself - and see if you won't go on a journey with the other books in the series!
I can't wait for the other books to come out! I have them ALL - and I do want MORE!
Maybe I would have liked this book when I was 12
