Following her award-winning debut, Kat Bastion returns to the Highland Legends series with the epic journey… Born of Mist and Legend.
Amid mythical lands, where Arthurian tales run blood-deep and castles vanish into fabled mist, a stormy sky breaks open with deafening thunder on a dying mother’s whispered enchantment… and her newborn’s die is cast. Eighteen summers later, magick sparks to life within the charmed child’s veins, and the fates resume their course.
Rise of a fallen angel…
Rebirth of a Highland goddess…
Revenge of a legendary wizard, craving their power.
Dark angel, outcast of his kind—lone angelic guardian of time itself—Skorpius receives a bewildering dual directive. Protect a human female. And end her.
Once bright and innocent, sister to the laird of the mysterious Clan Brodie, Brigid awakens to incredible magick within her. And the ability to sense a foreign energy: Another stalks her, a beast hunting its prey.
On a quest to protect her clan and save humankind, Brigid forges beyond the only home she’s ever known into the wilds of Scotland. Her destiny—to battle an ancient lurking menace—beckons her. She braves her task with fierce determination, even though she’s a mere novice among masters.
Upholding his vow to protect time against any threat, Skorpius is duty-bound to guard the female, with or without her consent. For he alone presides as judge and executioner.
As unprecedented danger to the fabric of time looms, the two beleaguered souls walk a tightrope between cure and cause. Yet while the destiny of every realm hangs in the balance, they are all that stand between salvation and destruction.
But against insurmountable odds…will they both survive?
*Born of Mist and Legend is a standalone full-length romance told in dual POV. Due to mature themes and adult language, this book is for those 18 and older.*
It was said that Brigid Brodie came into the world taking lives. The truth about the night that she was born was known by only a few and one of them didn’t see the sunrise. She carried the heavy burden of the tragedy every day of her eighteen years.
Unknown to her brothers, Brigid sets out on a dangerous quest to find the missing Fingall. She begins to understand that she is far more than just an ordinary mortal girl. And the power that she unconsciously wields, calls to a dark angel with a mysteriously dark past.
Warriors doona question duty.
Skorpius has been called to protect Brigid and to make sure that she doesn’t become too dangerous to time itself. For if she does, it will put her life in jeopardy.
Being so close to the innocent beauty ignites feelings that he thought were long since dead. The hard lesson of long ago should have been enough to keep her at arm’s length. But his black and shattered heart still longed to possess her - regardless of the consequences.
Together, both hale and whole, they’d been given a blessed second chance. Brigid’s heart now beat because of him. And she vowed not to squander the scant time remainin’ before a battle that would test their limits. “’Twould seem your heart beats strong because of me as well,” she murmured, feelin’ their deep connection on an emotional level.
In Born of Mist and Legend, Kat Bastion has melded the very best of historical and paranormal romance together in one expertly crafted tale. With characters that are as strong as they are complex, she delivers a tender yet forbidden love story that will make you swoon and then quicken your pulse.
It’s an enduring adventure complete with vast sweeping landscapes and magic in its heart. And I fell completely under its spell…
