Warriors of Ireland: Fighting for Honour and For Love!

Fire and Ice a duet of stories linked to the MacEgan Brothers

Rating By Julia,06/02/2016

Warrior of Ice by Michelle Willingham 1 _ Warrior of Ice __________ 06/15 ~~~( Killian MacDubh and Lady Taryn Connelly ) 2 _ Warrior of Fire ________ 12/15 ~~~(Lady Carice Faoilin and Raine de Garenne ) This is the first book in the duet which is attached to the area of the MacEgan Brothers. This one introduces us to the characters from both the above stories. We learn that although Killian and Carice are not related by birth they are as close as siblings could be. However, Carice is the daughter of the chieftain and Killian is considered more a slave. He is a free man but he is treated like a slave. The story starts with Carice being told she is to be betrothed to High King Rory Ó Connor. Carice is very ill and has not long to live according to the healers. Carice holds little faith that she will recover and does not want to spend the rest of her time given, being married to the High King. His reputation proceeds him and it is not good. Carice enlists the help of her ‘adopted’ brother. Killian is strong and is used to being in the shadows, so in her mind he is the ideal person to help. Killian wants to earn land of his own. He can best any of the warriors in Carrickmeath. However, one thing stops him. His sister Carice. Her father hates Killian. A man who is considered a bastard son of the High King. Brian Faoilin (Carice’s father) hoped for some advantage in taking in Killian and his mother, however, Rory soon squashed those ambitions. Brian now looks to Carice to get him related to the High King. Unknown to Killian, Taryn was having her own battles against her mother. She wants to approach the High King and beg him to spare or exile her father who is set to be killed for treason. She sets off with her one guard on foot. She reaches Carrickmeath hoping to enlist men to fight or smuggle her father out of the prison. What she found was soldiers at the gate. Some of Rory’s guards came as an escort to Carice. Killian is the first to approach and seeing Taryn enacts a ruse pretending she was Carice, after the guards assume that Taryn was Carice. Hoping to buy time and get Carice out by swapping the two women as they looked similar. In the end Taryn played along and claimed to be Carice. Killian was confused at who she was. They all went into the fortress Killian taking Taryn towards Carice’s chambers, stopping to find out who the lady was. Taryn kept her brat around her face only showing her eyes. Killian wanted to see her face, but Taryn couldn’t, so Killian removed it for her and saw the reason for her reluctance. Her statement saying she was ugly annoyed Killian who only saw someone who had suffered much with the scars she had. He wanted her to never hide from him. Killian was set on finding out more about the lady and went to make plans with her and Carice. He questioned about her father King Devlin, but she did not know why the High King held him. Lady Taryn requests Brian to allow her to have Killian as her servant for the trip, so he could travel with them. The idea was to swap them but, Queen Maeve, Taryn’s mother, makes it impossible. Carice had to continue on her journey whilst Taryn and Killian evaded Queen Maeve. There is much happening on the journey but I will not spoil the read for you. Killian gets a big bit of news that shocks him. Taryn finds someone who loves her and finds out the truth behind her scars. It is a wonderful read and a great addition and side story to the MacEgan Brothers. The characters go through much and learn much, in a story that is always moving. Things are never what they seem and Taryn and Killian have more in common than they ever imagined. The ending is sweet but I hope we see Taryn and Killian in Lady Carice’s story Warrior of Fire, to catch up with them. The ending lacked any real closure.
