He is a man from another time and another place but fairy
magic brought Dylan Matheson to Ciorran in the Scottish
Highlands decades before the final Jacobite defeat at
Culloden. He fell in love with the laird's daughter and
after much hardship and many adventures, he married her.
Their union produced two children before his precious Cait
was murdered by her abusive first spouse.
Dylan has come to realize his home is with Clan Ciorran and
he doesn't even want the fairy Sinann to try to return him
to his own time. This is just as well because the bumbling
fairy believes Dylan is the only one who can prepare the
clan for the hard times ahead. Before Dylan can deal with
his enemies (both English and Scottish) he must first
defeat Morrighan, the Celtic goddess of war who wants to
know the future and will use any means at her disposal to
force Dylan into giving up that information.
Cross Sharon Kay Penman with Mercedes Lackey and Judith
Tarr and readers will understand that the novel SWORD OF
KING JAMES is historical romantic fantasy at it's very
best. Hearts will go out to the beleaguered hero who still
mourns his true love while trying to move the clan in the
direction he wants it to go. J. Adrian Lee has created
something wondrous with this haunting novel.
When he met the laird's daughter, Cait, Dylan Matheson
found something to fight and live for in 18th-century
Scotland that he hadn't found in the 21st. But then Cait
was murdered, leaving him to raise their two children alone
and live a quiet life as a farmer.
But now, Dylan must once again take up arms against the
hated British-unaware that he's being manipulated by
Morrighan, the goddess of war, who wants to change the
course of history...
