Laird Galen Graham stumbles upon an injured woman who needs care and protection, but she cannot speak. He tries to find out who she is, but finds himself falling in love with her instead. Legend of the Fae (The Dark Fae Saga Book 1) written by April Holthaus is a unique story based on centuries-old tales passed down through the people of the Scottish Highlands. These stories were told about the Fae, better known to a reading audience today as the Fairies. Some tales of the Fae are told of them being evil, some of them being mystical creatures of good; this story, however, tells a tale of both good and evil Fae, magic, love, danger and mystery.

Author April Holthaus writes a plot of wonderful creativity with adventure, romance, and folktales. A reader has not a spare moment to ponder what will happen next as the suspense will keep them turning pages to find out. The story has different transitional plot settings from childhood friendship scenes, to the customs and responsibilities of a Scottish Laird, and a much talked about battle of good and evil, only portrayed with the culture of the Fae.

Not only is this story entertaining, but it is also resourceful and educational. For example, a reader can learn about a few Scottish customs, life style habits, and way of living in the 1400s, as well as learn a version of the origin of a commonly loved folk tale character, a fairy, or in this case, a Fae. Being an avid reader of Scottish romance books, as well as the romance/science fiction genre, I absolutely enjoyed this book very much and look forward to any future works from this author.
