Lady Mina of Stone Crest, Hugh, leader of the Shields, Roderick, Val, Gabriel, Cole and Darrick, companions of Hugh and Knights of the same cause. Mina's brother, Bernard, Baron of Stone Crest, Theresa of Cloister, Mina's sister and a cruel and vain woman, and you have the cast of this great story. Though Hugh and Mina are the main two characters, each of the others deserves to be mentioned as the author leaves you with the feeling that they are real.
Cole, an immortal, was found wandering between realms as a child. His world had been destroyed and he had been taken in and trained in weapons and fighting by the Fae. As all the other shields, each man has something, some quality that drew the Fae to them. I mention Cole because of the immortality and the fact that he is the only one to come from another dimension. Or is he? Also the truth is that he is my favorite.
A demon is plaguing Stone Crest and destroying everything Mina cares about. Hugh and his men have been hunting these creatures down and trying to destroy them. Out of hundreds, Hugh’s men are the only ones left, and the Demons are getting harder to kill and more intelligent. Can Hugh and Mina save Stone Crest, can Hugh and his men save the world from this threat, can the story get any wilder as we find out that not only do they have to save their own time periods but the future as well? Are you hooked? Well, you should be and well, go get the book.
I normally will not read a historical but after hearing about this book, I decided to take a chance. Man, am I glad I did - it is gripping, loving, suspenseful and totally addictive. I hope that I am the lucky reviewer to get the next one in the series. Oh please, Ms Grant, do me the honor of continuing this series with you and finding joy once more in a great historical romance. A heart-stopping 5 Enchantments.
