Young, pregnant witch, Alainn McCreary, is forced to rely on her mysterious and unpredictable magical powers in an attempt to protect the life of her strong and courageous new husband, Killian O’Brien, and the life of their unborn child, battling against all odds waged by a powerful and corrupt chieftain, a vengeful curse, and malevolent dark forces unleashed by a scheming demon.
Set in mystically enchanting, but dark and dangerous 16th Century Ireland where fairies, witches, spirits, and demons dwell among humans, the Chieftain’s Daughter is an enticingly romantic and lustful tale of love, desire, danger, and adventure.
“In truth, I doubt I'd notice if a herd of giant Irish elk stomped through the entire chamber when I'm in the act of lovin' you, Lainna!”
The Chieftain’s Daughter is the wonderful third installment in Leigh Ann Edwards’ The Irish Witch series set in sixteenth century Ireland. The series blends amazing characters in an ageless romance embedded in a dangerous contest of good versus evil. I can’t get enough of the author’s interweaving of history, magic, legend, mythology, and an epic steamy romance.
This episode picks up right where the previous book, The Witch’s Daughter, left off with the ongoing saga of Irish witch Alainn and swarthy noble Killian, our heroine and hero. Alain’s powers continue to increase as she becomes more adept at tapping into what she can do. At the same time, the dark are gaining prominence and targeting Alain. As this segment opens, Alain is stuck in another realm separated from Killian. She and Killian are battling human and supernatural forces to be together. Seriously, you won’t want to put it down! It’s a page-turner, for sure!
Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from The Chieftain’s Daughter:
“Our place is here, our time is now!" Killian firmly declared.”
“I am a contradictory creature, I think," Alainn continued, "for the witch and druid in me can create fire, the fairy in me is drawn to it yet cannot tolerate it, and the woman is in a constant state of torrid fire within me whenever I think of my strikingly virile husband.”
“I've no plans to couple with anyone other than my new bride for the next century or so, and it feels as though it's takin' a century to get to it!”
This series will consist of seven books with four having been released so far. I inhaled all four in less than three days and am anxiously waiting for the fifth which is releasing January 2018! This is a series you should read in order. The books are engrossing reads and you won’t want to miss one enchanting moment. Do yourself a favor, start from the beginning and read it sequentially. You won’t be sorry!
The series is beautifully written and edited. The story is well-plotted, gripping, heartwarming, and highly entertaining. There’s a cliffhanger ending, but, since the next book is already available, it’s not a big deal. Just know that you will want to have the next installment ready to go! If you enjoy addictive historical fairytale romances featuring witches, a swoony hero, and rising dark forces, I’d highly recommend that you check out The Irish Witch series!
