•٠•● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ●•٠• Review, Giveaway & Blog Tour For Celtic Fire (Highland Celts Series, #1) By Liz Gavin •٠•● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ●•٠•
(Highland Celts Series, #1)
Publication date: January 31st 2017
Genres: Adult, Historical, Paranormal Romance
This is a standalone, historical/paranormal
romance. Its mature themes – violence, religious war,
and pagan rituals – might not be appropriate for audiences under 18.
When ancient gods ruled and Druids kept Faith alive, the
Celts thrived as a democratic, matriarchal society.
Then savage Roman soldiers swept across Europe, killing
and enslaving. The Celts did not succumb without a fight.
Their Old Ways survived centuries of ruthless domain until
another menace loomed: a tortured god worshiped in cold
stone buildings. The sacred shores of Avalon began to drift
away, the mists threatened to hide the island from mortal
Against the bleak backdrop of war, the gorgeous Scottish
Highlands stood tall, sheltering its inhabitants from greedy
invaders. Yet the reach of the eagle banners was long and
the highlanders turned to the Goddess for protection.
However, the sacred groves felt silent and grim as Avalon
faded away. Once sad, pealing bells began to sound
strangely comforting while the high walls of monasteries
offered an alluring barrier from violence. Caught in the middle
of this centuries-old war, a young High Priestess might be
Avalon’s last chance.
Wise beyond her years and powerful like no other Priestess
in her lifetime, Rowen had served the Goddess faithfully,
forsaking her family and the company of her soulmate.
When the Lady of the Lake asks for another sacrifice, it might
be one too many for her scarred heart. How could she obey
the Goddess without betraying Caddaric? Could she trust
Eochaid, who embodied everything she despised and
hated? Would she be able to fulfill her duties without losing
Caddaric had been Rowen’s companion in countless lives;
but, now, they existed in different realms. Beautiful Rowen
lived in the mortal world while sweet Caddaric remained in
the sacred isle of Avalon, watching over her. Could he step
aside to allow another man – a flesh and blood man – to
become her protector?
Eochaid had sworn to protect the Old Ways. The rude
warrior never quite understood his faith yet his loyal heart
belonged to the Goddess. A gorgeous, fiery High Priestess
was not in his plans. He would risk his life to protect Rowen;
but, would the Goddess safeguard his heart? Could he
defend the bewitching maiden from himself?
When stakes were so high that a simple mistake could cost
their very world, a priestess, a Druid, and a warrior must
learn to trust each other and the mysterious ways of the
Goddess. Their success would save Avalon. Their failure
would tear the island from the human realm forever,
condemning it to oblivion.
Failure was not an option.
Wow simply WOW. I am of Irish and Scottish decent. And know
there were Celts in my past as well. I picked up this book as I
enjoy those stories. Always drawn to them. This one is so well
written and the fact that she motioned the reincarnation that most
live out of the story about Celts. I was pleasantly surprised.
This is a story of love and rebirth and how Karma and reincarnation
gives us the chance to correct the sins of our pasts. This is the
story of Eochaid and the high preistes Rowen and her love Chadric
. This was so fun to read and learn how they all interacted. Chadric
in Avalon and Eochade in our realm with Rowan. And how she
had to learn that even though we are reborn we are not always
reborn to the same place or same time as our soulmate and how that
soulmate can be even a family member and not the great love of
our lives. And who knows they may even be a child. This was one
hell of a tale and so fun to read I cannot wait to read the next book.
Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope
you enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this
book, please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like
it when you do; they value your opinions too.
