A while back, I used the phrase “a decadently rich reading experience” to describe a book by Kat & Stone Bastion. After several years – and books – later I stand by it. Born of Mist and Legend is a delectable story fantasy romance lovers would want to miss.

Brigid had been born within Clan Brodie, home of the prophesied Traveler. Younger sister to their laird, Brigid, had been human until her eighteenth birthday when her mother’s enchantment sparked magic within her and changed the course of her

Born of Mist and Legend is a stunningly epic journey told through such vivid detail and exquisite emotion. I was left in awe as I walked the steps of this beautifully multi-layered and wonderfully complex story. If that isn't enough, we are then gifted with brilliant characters that are sure to delight and entertain as feel the the heat and conflict between sizzle literally off the pages. Combining the awe-inspiring story and its incredible characters, a countdown begins that will lead us to an ...more

***3.5 Stars***

I went into this book without having read the previous books in the series because I not only have thoroughly enjoyed the author’s contemporary books, but the blurb sounded interesting and it was noted that it could be read as a stand-alone and, when everything was said and done, I can say that I really did enjoy Skorpius and Brigid’s journey BUT, I think I would have enjoyed it more from the get go had I read the first two books in the series. Instead, it took me a minute to

It was said that Brigid Brodie came into the world taking lives. The truth about the night that she was born was known by only a few and one of them didn’t see the sunrise. She carried the heavy burden of the tragedy every day of her eighteen years.

Unknown to her brothers, Brigid sets out on a dangerous quest to find the missing Fingall. She begins to understand that she is far more than just an ordinary mortal girl. And the power that she unconsciously wields, calls to a dark angel with a myste

I couldn't tell you how long I've waited for this book, I was immediately sucked in with the first in this series, Forged in Dreams and Magick. For the most part I did enjoy this, but I'll have to do a re-read in the future. It was a big tougher for me to get into this one and that's because it has been extremely tough for me to focus on any of my reading. But I pushed through because I was eager to know Brigid and Skorpius.

It was a definitely a slow burn kind of love between the both of them a

This is truly an epic read. Complex characters, a well developed world and deeply engaging story will quickly ensnare you in this captivating tale of magic, adventure and romance. This is my independent, impartial review.

This author team is a new one to me, and they write a very involved fantasy world. This book was therefore very long, as worldbuilding and describing how the different magicks, timelines and worlds work takes a lot of words. 50+ chapters of it.I found all this detail, maybe because I haven’t read the other books in the series did bog me down a bit, I found it confusing and often, unnecessary. It made me stop reading, as it wearied me.

The story at its core features an Angel, Skorpius, who is a gu

Have you ever picked up a book that just was not your cup of tea? This was what this book was for me. I picked it up because I am a big fan of Kat Bastion and love her writing style. I have to say that when I started it was not my cup of tea but by the time I finished it today it was like a treat that I could not get enough of. Born of Mist and Legend is an epic tale that explores the journey of Skorpius and Brigid that are both destined for greatness. For me the word choice

Born of Mist and Legend, Kat Bastion

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre: Sci-fi and fantasy, Romance.

I've been waiting for this book for years. Literally. I read the first two books back in 2013, some seven years ago! So before starting this one I reread those and loved them just as much now as I did then. That doesn't always happen, sometimes your tastes have changed but I was quickly absorbed back into the Brodie clan.
Sadly though I really struggled with this, its very focused on Sko

Kat Bastion has done it again!

Following her award-winning debut, Kat Bastion returns to the Highland Legends series with the epic journey Born of Mist and Legend. In 2013, I really enjoyed reading Forged in Dreams and Magick and Bound by Wish and Mistletoe. Born of Mist and Legend is marvellously written by Ms. Bastion. It is a fantastic story filled with magic and set in the Highlands at Brodie Castle. We meet again Brigid, her brother Iain married to Isobel, Susanna and Robert and finally Skor

Surprisingly different from book 1. The use of a thesaurus is apparent as well a trickling of words in other languages that don't fit in this Scotland story. I. E. “Infatigable” which is french for “tireless”. These instances seem to be trying to hard to make the book feel more intellectual. The story does not need this. It is a fantastical romance, easy words and english would have made it more enjoyable to read. Thankfully this book was not full of smexy smutty situations ( like book 1). There ...more

Magic, angels, mist and a dragon. Beautiful imagery and a detailed storyline including some interesting historical references. Maybe my mind needed something simple because I was often overwhelmed by the wordiness. Talking in their minds versus using words got confusing. I missed the sarcasm and joking that Skorpius has with Isobel, he’s serious and mysterious now. This was a wonderfully written novel and very well planned. I received an early copy through Netgalley and wrote my review voluntari ...more

When i pick up a bastion book I just know I need to have no reservations going in becuase I never know what I will expect. I like that this book is written in a way that a standalone could be but I think people would enjoy it even more if they started at the begining I think the connection to the main characters would make more sense and it wouldnt feel quite so aggressive as the story just takes right off from the begining. This is a fantasy book which is not my normal go to which could be why ...more

Kindly provided with an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review......

A stunning read !!!. This was quite the journey for our leading guy and his lady. It follows Skorpius and Brigid - both have a calling, both lives become intrinsically entwined. Loved it !!!.
It can be read as a Standalone. Truly I was not really sure what to expect but I soon become enthralled with the world created by Kat. Throw myth and magic together in a read and you've got me hooked.

Well done Kat.....great, epi

This book is the story of Brigid and Skorpius. This book does not focus on the time travel aspect a lot and more on the paranormal, I started reading this series because I wanted more reading about time travelling, although we get to know about the angles in book 1 this topic gets explored and explained more in detail in book 2. I loved this book a lot and look forward to reading book 3 in the series.

Brigid and Skorpius were interesting characters, but there was so. much. time. spent on world-building and seemingly unrelated mini plot lines that I was very distracted and had a hard time finishing. I'm not sure if reading the first in the series would have been more helpful, but it was labeled as a stand-alone. ...more
