While the book’s prequel influenced my choice for this week, I did watch the trailer before I made my final decision. The trailer piqued my interest enough to garner my promise to read the next installment for this week’s review.

Arianna Broun, a Scottish born colonial American has been haunted by the reoccurring dream of a phantom Scottish warrior. Her infatuation with the dream intensifies until All Hallows’ Eve, when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest. After several bizarre encounters she runs to her safe haven deep in the woods. When dawn comes too early, Arianna is eager to go home. But fate has other plans.
Laird Iain MacLomain has long awaited the arrival of his promised bride. She claims to not be the woman intended for him but she fits the description given him of her, all fire and defiance. That defiance will end up costing them everything and rips them apart. However, a Scottish Chieftain with magic at his disposal is capable of most anything. Will he hold Arianna in his arms again or is she lost to him forever? Only time will tell.
I knew from the first short story that the author had a lot of potential. I have to say Book One of this series was in no way disappointing. The author’s talents shone through with glowing intensity. This book featured in–depth descriptions, the rich development of characters and slow glimpses of a past that was intriguing to witness.
Enthralled I read the story from start to finish, waiting anxiously for each event to unfold. I loved the true historical nature of the book. The way the author throws in a bit of fantasy mixed with true history is mesmerizing.
Though I will not be reviewing any more books from this series, I definitely plan on reading them all. I’m presently working on Destiny’s Denial, Book Two in The MacLomain Series. Fate’s Monolith is a great book and enjoyable read. I give this 4.5 hearts.
