The Scots of Dalriada by Rowena Kinread June 02 - 05 2023

Intrigue, lies, dreams, treachery, romance, and brotherly bonds weave with a rich, historical setting and a create a tale to sink into. This is a saga, which is set during the 5th century of Irish and Scottish history. While the main plot centers around Fergus Mor (also considered the first King of Scottland), his two brothers, Loarn and Angus, hold quite a bit of importance as well. Then, there's the half-brother, whose own desires and intentions threaten to ruin anything and everything the three brothers achieve.

This isn't a straight-forward story, but as is with real life, many aspects are constantly at play. A rich weave of secrets, lies, hopes, and the desire to survive drive the tale forward as obstacles mount and every achievement seems to come with a heavy price. The relationships draw in and hit the heart, while battles rage and dangers lurk in the shadows. And all the while, the historical aspects sink in with natural finesse and create a vivid world. It's a grabbing read,
