The final installment in Jackson's medieval trilogy (after Impostress and Temptress ) finds a witch and a warrior drawn together for the battle of their lives. In 13th-century northern Wales, a man named Gavyn is on the run from his own father after killing, in self-defense, the ruthless sheriff of Agendor. Meanwhile, a sorceress named Bryanna is leaving her home in the south of Wales, traveling north at the beckoning of a powerful vision and hoping to gather the four jewels that haunt her dreams. When Gavyn and Bryanna meet by chance, their banter is touched by humor and sexual longing, and it isn't long before an ethereal episode of lovemaking binds them together and their dangerous journeys become one. Trying to stay a step ahead of Gavyn's father and the man who murdered Bryanna's mother, their quest for the jewels makes a tense, fast-paced adventure complete with paranormal beings and mystical powers. This fine finale combines romance, suspense and mysticism to make a top-notch read. (Sept.)
