4 Stars from Romantic Times:

Author Catherine Bybee writes a complicated story, one involving ancient curses, time travel, historical culture clash get rid of this comma and plenty of sexual tension. But the author keeps the action and emotions straightforward by investing in several choice characters with complementary plot lines. The danger the time traveling druidess Myra MacCoinnich is in is well-balanced with her experience in contemporary times and her romance with Officer Todd Blakely. Bybee makes an interesting choice when she preserves Myra’s values about sex and marriage (and keeps the heroine interested in returning to 1576) rather than immediately solving the story in a simple manner. However, Myra’s hesitations allow Bybee to showcase the dynamic secondary character, Lizzy McCallister, who aids Myra in navigating through the present day and modern romance. The story improves even further when Myra, Todd, Lizzy and Lizzy’s son straddle centuries. Although there are a few lags when the narrative switches to highlight Witch Grainna and her minions, Silent Vows is buoyed up with mysticism and Myra and Todd’s scorching encounters. For being the stuff of folklore, the storyline is surprisingly convincing and the ending is a perfect set up for the trilogy's last installment. You won't want to miss it!
