was the seventh son of Magnus Armstrong, the heir of Inverfyre,
the warrior destined to fulfill an old prophecy, and the son of
the greatest thief in Christendom besides. Fortune would not dare
deny him his due.”
1390 and Michael Lammergeir’s quest has begun. He is destined
to reclaim Clan property seized long ago. Upon arriving at the Inverfyre
forest, Michael and his group cross the path of an Adaira, an old
woman haunting the forest. Adaira mystically shares the past and
the future with Michael, warning him of two souls doomed to passion
and betrayal in every life.
later, Aileen finds herself the subject of her father’s notorious
guest, Michael the Hawk, known to have killed many in the recapture
of Inverfyre. Fearless and uncommon in her manner, Aileen intrigues
Michael. Their first kiss mystically reveals more than either are
ready for, and the temptation is too great for Michael. Like a hawk,
he takes to the night with Aileen.
Warrior is one of your better romances. Readers can expect
an absorbing tale that isn’t weighed down with superfluous
characters or facts. Delacroix focuses on the main and secondary
characters important to the storyline. Don’t get me wrong,
the historical features of the storyline are well executed -- goodness
knows, Delacroix is known for her medieval romances -- but it’s
the characters that breathe life into The Warrior and make
the reader care.
maybe the last of a trilogy, but it reads as a stand alone romance.
Everything the reader needs to make the story complete is here.
If you like trilogies, and like to read them in order, then triple
your pleasure and purchase the The Rogue and The Scoundrel
for the extended tale. Delacroix’s next medieval Scottish
trilogy, The Jewels of Kinfairlie, will be available in
