Time travel, fae and Norse warriors make an amazing combination in Mayhue’s third novel in the Warriors series. Fans have been eager to read Halldor O’Donar’s story, and it’s definitely worth the wait. The trope of time travel can sometimes be a bit unwieldy, and the addition of magic and myths could make it hard to follow but luckily that’s not a problem here. Mayhue does a wonderful job of keeping the story flowing with a solid pace, and plenty of excellent action and romance. Another winner for fans of Highlander romance!
Bridget MacCulloch is a descendent of the Picts and a warrior in her own right, but everyone she encounters believes she should calm down and find herself a husband. Perhaps if she could control her temper long enough, she would succeed in her only goal: avenging her father’s death. Halldor O’Donar is a descendant of Thor. As Protector of Man, Hall’s working to save humanity from a monster escaped from his world. Faeries are thwarting him at every turn, and the last thing he needs is a beautiful, wild woman distracting him. Brie and Hall soon learn that to meet their goals, they must join together. If Brie can learn to harness her negative emotions and Hall can manage open his heart to love, the Fates just might allow them to succeed. (POCKET, Dec., 368 pp., $7.99)
