'Gaelic calls spin a web through the mist in arcs of soft sound. Fear unsteadies the unseen flocks on the scrub heather hillside as men and dogs weave a trap around them in the darkling night. Once the flocks are penned, then the lanterns are turned towards the south. The watchers wait in silence.'

It is 1793... As Europe watches the French Revolution's bloody progress, u

This is a long over due review. I've had this book for like 3 months now, and it has got to get checked off my to do list. 

Generally I'm am never so unsure of a book as I am with this one. It was really good, don't get me wrong, but I don't think that it was my type of book persay.

The writing was amazing, the character development and the setting wer

This book has received a Discovering Diamonds Review:
" Part political intrigue, part romance, part mysticism, this debut novel, The Wolf of Dalriada, explores the upheaval of the period of the French Revolution and it is refreshing to see life in this era from the different perspective of Scotland rather than the more usual London/Paris Scarlet Pimpernel-type romantic adventure."

Adele has escaped the horrors of the French Revolution - her courtly connections putting her and her family in danger, whilst the Lady Emma is engaged to a Scottish noble. Their fates become entwined as their friendship blooms, and the dramatic t

I gave this book several chapters and could just not get into the story. It just wasn't type of book. It's well written and the plot was interesting- historical highland fiction story. I am sure it will have, or has, it's readers. just not for me. ...more
