The MacAlasdair clan is tired of battling England for
Scottish independence. Erik MacAlasdair is mentally,
physically, and emotionally exhausted from the time he has
spent battling English forces. It is becoming harder to
control his ability to transform and he is starting to see the
opposing troops as prey. His father sends him on an
expedition to find an object which could sway the tide in
the battle with the English.
The legends refer to an island in the ocean west of
Europe where the object is stored. Erik will travel to
France to learn about the object from his sister-in-law.
France is battling an infestation of the plague which has
decimated its population and left him with very few
ships whose captains are willing to make the journey to
an unknown destination.
Erik is told about the Hawk, a ship whose captain is a
woman who might be willing to take on the task.
When he finds the ship, he discovers the captain is a
woman he once knew.
Toinette is surprised to see Erik and has to carefully
consider his request since they will be sailing in waters
that exist on none of their charts. Toinette was the
child of a mortal woman and a dragon who disappeared from
his child's life. As a young girl she found her way to
Scotland to learn more about her dragon side. Just as
she and Erik were ready to move their relationship to a
deeper level than friends, Toinette was sent out into the
world by Erik's father.
Toinette and Erik keep their relationship friendly until
they find themselves stranded on the island to which they
are led. What they find on the island will lead them and
the men on the ship into extremely dangerous
circumstances. There is a power on the island that
controls their ability to leave the island. The power
that exists has wrought terrible changes to the plant
life and some of the creatures on the island.
Toinette and Erik will have to expose their secret life
as dragons to save the men and themselves from the
danger. They will search out the source of the power.
What they discover is so dark and corrupting that they
realize that they will not be able to control it but will
have to seek some way to destroy it.
HIGHLAND DRAGON MASTER is the third in the Dawn of the Highland Dragon
series and Isabel Cooper has made each one unique. Fans of
Ms. Cooper will not want to miss this book. Erik and
Toinette have a history that adds to the richness of the
relationship between the two of them. The mysteries of
the artifact are surprising in their revelations and very
much in keeping with the magical content incorporated in
He swore to protect Scotland to his last breath
But when terror rules the seas, he'll have to make a choice:
Give everything he has for independence, or trust in the
dragon who rules his heart.
The war for Scottish independence rages on, but it's only a
matter of time before England is victorious. Exhausted and
battle-weary, Highland dragon Erik MacAlasdair will face
unknown seas to seek the Templar stronghold and claim a
power so great it could free his beloved homeland forever.
If only that kind of power didn't come with such a terrible
Daughter of a mortal woman and an ancient dragon, Toinette
has never forgotten the proud Scot who once stole her young
heart—she'll gladly fight at his side. But when dark forces
leave them stranded on a cursed island, it will take
everything they have to defy their fate...and trust the
passion that burns within the heart of every dragon.
