Review: Forged In Dreams and Magick (Highland Legends #1)



Book: Forged In Dreams and Magick (Highland Legends #1)

Author: Kat Bastion

Pages: 338

Pub: 2013 



The award-winning debut in the Highland Legend Series:


Isobel MacInnes wakes up in present day California, lunches in medieval Scotland, and by ten days’ end, falls in love with a man and his country, only to lose them in a heart-wrenching twist of fate…


Found in the arms of her second soul mate…


Forced to balance the delicate strands of time between two millennia…


Shocked by revelations rewriting the very foundations of history… of everything.


Isobel, a rising-star archaeology student, is dropped into two ancient worlds without warning… or permission.  Her fiery spirit resists the dependency thrust upon her.  Amid frustration at her lack of control, she helplessly falls in love. Twice.


She struggles to adjust to the unimaginable demands of two leaders of men — a laird in the thirteenth century Highlands and a Pict chieftain in a more ancient Scotland.  Isobel transforms from an academic, hell-bent on obtaining archaeological recognition, to a woman striving to care for those she loves, and ultimately… into a fearless warrior risking everything to protect them.


***Scorching (explicit) sex scenes.***



4.5 stars!


What a completely fun and exciting page turner! Very few authors portray the Scottish Highlands as colorfully as Kat Bastion. Her stellar debut is a complete triumph!


I cannot believe how fortunate I was to get ahold of this jewel.  A time travel that is set back in Scotland & two different heroes??? Yes, please!


The characters are fabulous. Iain and Velloc are the two heroes in this book and they are completely irresistible.  I found myself loving Velloc a lot more than I did Iain. I couldn’t help it. Velloc stole my heart. 

The secondary characters are awesome as well and I cannot wait to read their stories. 


My most favorite books to read are about Highlanders but after reading “Forged In Dreams and Magick”  I can only hope that Ms. Bastion writes a series with just Picts! Oh my, I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed Velloc and all the history she wrote into his part of the story.


This is a book not to be missed!
