My 5-Star Review:
Author Kat Bastion first debut novel is simply amazing! This author has great talent, depth and class! Her writing style is so descriptive that it makes you feel like you’re right there watching each scene evolve before your eyes! I was honoured to receive this book to review and once I started I couldn’t put it down!
The way the story unfolds is intriguing ….it starts off in the modern day twenty first century with a young archeology student, Isobel MacInnes, who is in Scotland visiting her Seanair/ or grandfather who is gravely ill. He talks to her about finding out the secrets of Highlands history not told. Then on her way home to California she discovers by accident a mysterious artifact that ends up changing her life as she knows it forever…she discovers time-travel, Scottish Highlander history and sensual romance with two soul-mates in different time periods!
The story transports you back in time to the thirteenth century of the Highlander clan of the laird Iain Brodie, an extremely hot alpha male who wears a plaid/ or kilt…and oh how I love a strong sexy man in a kilt!
Then you are transported even further back in time over 1000 years to AD 84, the time period of the Scottish Picts, into a tribe called Caereni, who’s leader is medieval alpha male called Velloc whom is naked or wearing furs …oh my…drool! 
The story is full of adventure, hot passion, historical references and rituals which had me completely spellbound! It’s a very well written story and I can’t wait to read the rest of this series!!!
