Book Review | Destiny of a Warrior by Award-Winning @m_morganauthor #fantasyromance #CelticMythology

Title: DESTINY OF A WARRIOR, Legends of the Fenian Warriors, Book 4

Author: Mary Morgan

Genre: Fantasy/ Celtic Mythology /Fairytales

Book Blurb:

"You met him in the Order of the Dragon Knights. Now, journey to the realm of the Fae and witness their greatest legend!”

As leader of the Fenian Warriors, Aidan Kerrigan’s accolades are many and his loyalty to the Fae unwavering. When an unexpected mission sends him to the human world and a chance encounter with Rose MacLaren, he’s tempted for the first time in his existence to discard duty and claim what is forbidden.

Rose MacLaren, a Society of the Thistle member, yearns to expand her botanical knowledge with her love of history. After her rescue by a handsome stranger, she is compelled to look beyond what her rational mind comprehends and unravel the secret of the standing stones, as well as the man who captivates her.

In a mystical world ruled by ancient laws and edicts, can a fierce warrior choose a path destined for love? And will a woman honoring the ways of the land believe in a myth only spoken of in legends? If they do, will their love be enough to defy death’s punishment?

My Review:

Aidan Kerrigan’s moral compass leads his every thought, feeling and emotion. As the leader of the Fenian Warriors, he has a responsibility to be an example to those men he mentors. There is no space for emotion, yet alone love. But when a situation surfaces, he’ll have to use every ounce of willpower to resist the alluring beauty Rose MacLaren, a Society of the Thistle member. What she uncovers will change both fae and human realms forever. Aiden pushes away her advances but in a moment of clarity, he realizes his destiny is walking through life with Rose. Will she accept him as the man he is and will she wait for him when he sacrifices all for her love?

I have read snippets of Aiden’s and Rose’s love story in past books and I was so excited when Mary Morgan told me she’d written their story. I had high expectations and was interested in how the story would play out. I was not disappointed. In fact, I truly believe this is Mary Morgan’s best book to date.

Continuity is a huge thing for me, especially when it comes to a series. I remember certain details from previous books and in Destiny of a Warrior, these threads are woven throughout the story. Even small details are brought forward with more clarity in this book. Well done, Mary Morgan!

The reason why I say this is the best book of Mary Morgan’s career is the emotional attachment the reader feels for the characters. There are several obstacles which Aiden and Rose have to overcome before they can be together. Aiden must open his heart to the possibility of love while Rose must open her spirit to the magic within Aiden. The struggle is real within them both and there were times I cried aloud for them to confess their true feelings for one another.

There’s one scene where Rose is close to breaking down, her heart split open and anguish pouring out, where I hugged my tablet and wept with her. The emotion coming from the words written pierced my soul and I let my emotions take over. This reaction is a rare one for me and I applaud Mary Morgan for an excellently written story.

If you’re looking to be transported to Scotland and Ireland, complete with a magical love story and one act of defiance which will shake the Fae realm for years to come, pick up Destiny of a Warrior today. Highly recommend!

Favorite Character/Quote:

“Rose was his land—his home. A part of him fractured with the realization. When did his world tilt off its axis? There was no firm compass anymore. No sure direction, save one. Rose.”
