My Review:

Author Mary Morgan has built a wonderfully real fantasy world where the human and Fae work to keep both worlds safe.  In her previous series, Order of The Dragon Knights where five warriors are on paths of redemption, quests to gain favor again with the Fae, this series, Legends of the Fenian Warriors, continues with quests of the Fenian Warriors, those very Fae who helped the Dragon Knights. The warriors broke laws, so severely wrong, they are facing death. Two of the three have already completed their quests (book 1 & 2).  Liam MacGregor must now face his due punishment.

Liam, imprisoned really has lost hope.  He knows what he did broke Fae laws. One wee princess, Abela, changes all for him.

Princess Abela, sister to Conn, the prince of the Fae and eventually in line to be King, had chosen to be a daughter of Mother Danu. She has lived much of her life in the temple where knowledge of what is happening outside the walls is rarely heard.  She preferred it that way.  She had buried her love for Liam MacGregor in the bosom of the Mother when she did not capture his heart as he had captured hers.  She entered into the priesthood and Liam became a Fenian Warrior. Much time has passed and they both moved forward – or so they thought.

I love this princess because she has so many sides of who she is.  She’s a warrior, innately curious about the human world, simply because Liam spends much of his life protecting and guiding the humans.  She’s courageous and not afraid to do something quite unethical as we experience with her breaking in to where Liam is imprisoned and breaking him out.  Her love for him (which she finally admits to herself) has her saving his life, even when she very likely forfeits her own.

Both Liam and Abela are unwilling to speak of their love for each other for their past together makes them wary.  They plan on changing the timeline, rewrite or amend a law.  They are already slated for death, so why not try to amend the past? Their quest is filled with hardship.  Abela is unschooled in the power she has and this doesn’t make it easy to complete their quest and Liam has none of his powers, taken away when sent to prison.

Liam and Abela have heated discussions which are rather edifying.  If Abela is unable to continue to cloak their whereabouts, their mission will end before it’s begun, and both will be punished by death.

This tale will push all your buttons—highly emotionally charged where much is at stake – including lives.  You will love how Abela is very much a princess, priestess and warrior.  Liam is ever the honorable warrior. He must return her to the Fae Realm for physically she can’t remain long in the human world, not like the Fenian Warriors. Will Liam, faced with all the obstacles they encounter, get her back in time?  Will she, too, face certain death, even though the sister of the prince?

Morgan has created an exciting, nail-biting story, where a surprise awaits the reader.  No spoilers here, but this is jaw-dropping stuff!  If you haven’t read Morgan’s other series, do yourself a favor, you won’t regret the journey and it will give you better insight to Morgan’s world.
