The subtle magic of this story is truly beautiful and Aidan is such a fabulously complex hero who intrigued me from the very first word. I'm a sucker for so many aspects of this novel, I adore Scottish heroes, give them a historical setting and I'm practically drooling add a paranormal aspect and I'm definitely a goner so there was no doubt that I'd enjoy this story. And I so did! Aidan feels as if he needs to keep himself isolated and this about broke my heart so I was so happy that Mora came into his life. She herself was living a life that was basically a facade as well so I couldn't wait for the two of them to peel the layers away and be able to reveal their true selves. This is the first in the Magic series that I've read and I know it will not be the last as all these characters completely caught my attention and I just have to read their stories. I believe I have just discovered another author for my must-read list.
