"exciting Highlander tale"
In Pine Creek, Maine, Robbie MacBain tries to catch the
person raiding his henhouse but fails when the young woman
outruns him though he is a warrior in great shape. His four
teenage "delinquent" wards tease him.
Father Daar tells Robbie the guardian that the spell that
brought the ten Scottish warriors with him from eight
hundred years ago forward in time thirty five years ago is
expiring. The survivors will return to their biological
time. Robbie needs to steal the spell book of a rival
wizard so that Daar can perform an extension spell.
Robbie learns that his thief is Catherine Daniels a woman
with two young children who is divorced from Ronald who
spent three years in prison for spousal abuse.
The latest Highlander tale is an exciting story enhanced by
a wonderful support cast including those returning from
previous novels and the six youngsters. Fans will
appreciate the heroine who vows to watch Robbie's back and
feel for her frightened children. Though two major
confrontations (present time and eight hundred years ago),
turn out to be anticlimactic, fans will enjoy this
