Publisher's Summary

When a single moment challenges your perception of truth....
Epigraphist Dr. Essie DeSpencer travels to an ancient Welsh castle in order to decipher an Ogham inscription discovered by the handsome and enigmatic Garreth ap Daffyd. But the journey is not what she expects. She doesn’t plan to fall for the lord of the castle or to find herself deeply entrenched in legends, myths, and magic.
Real legends, and real magic, that have devastating consequences. Garreth didn’t plan for Essie to stay any longer than it took her to decipher the pictograph. Instead, he finds himself falling in love for the first time in his very long life. Now, the Lord of Llys y Gwalch must find a way to attain the heart of his soul mate and keep her safe from the dangers that threaten them both.

Everything you could want in a classic fairy tale

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has all the classic elements in a modern fairy tale including some ancient “fairy” folk. Yet it is not predictable. The narration and multitude of different voices used by the narrator adds to the enjoyment. Some of the humour included made me laugh out loud.


I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Clean adventure romance with paranormal elements

This is the kind of romance that gains momentum as the plot developes. It is like slow burning embers that are coaxed to life with nurturing energy. It is more adventure than anything else, with codes to decipher and translate, mysteries to solve and enemies to uncover. It is rife with mythical creatures and has a healthy serving of humour too. It starts at quite a slow pace, as any mystery probably would, but as the pieces of the puzzle fall in place, so does the growing passion between Essie and Gareth. I will admit that I wasn't convinced I would like the story to begin with because it meandered a bit. But it slowly took shape and I found myself committed to the quest. I do wish it ended with more pizzazz but it was in keeping with the rest of the story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
