Dougal MacDonnell's story begins on the fighting field of Culloden in 1746. He is with his father and two brothers, all well trained Highlander warriors. As the fighting gets more fierce he loses track of his brothers in mists that have fallen over the fighting fields. He watches as his father is felled and sees him draw his last breath. He looks for his brothers again but cannot find them. He looks around and realizes that he is surrounded by British soldiers and soon is their captive.

He is devastated by the loss of his family and carries a deep hatred for the English. He spends a great deal of time "in custody" under sub-human conditions where he meets and befriends several people. One person that he meets up with is Glenna, the love of his life. However she is a Scottish outlaw, and is captured and shipped overseas. Dougal joins an English army made of Highland Warriors who will take him across the seas to the colonies.

I was grabbed/hooked in the first several paragraphs and did not want to put the book down. Ms Graham keeps the action going and the readers attention throughout the whole book. This is a book that engages the emotions and draws the reader into the story. I only hope that she will continue to write more for this series.
