Masquerade by Heather McCollum

Masquerade (The Dragonfly Chronicles)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an absolutely thrilling, chilling rollercoaster ride through time! This book is without a doubt one of the very best books I have read this year. Modern day witch and thief, Kat, steals for the best of reasons, but when a sexy, mysterious man, Toren MacCallum sees through her glamour and confronts her about her newest acquisition, both he and Kat are catapulted back in time, by a well-intentioned spirit, to sixteenth century England. Unexpectedly, back in his own time, Toren and Kat become embroiled in a land feud with the Campbell’s that could mean the end of the MacCallum line. Kat uses her powers to rescue Toren’s sister from her would-be rapist and murderer but unintentionally draws an evil horde of demons bent on possessing the dragonfly amulet that Kat had stolen from Toren.

This beautifully written, perfectly edited story is the third book in the Dragonfly Chronicles, but it is a magnificent stand-alone adventure all on its own merit. This story abounds with humor and characters that will steal your heart away. The adventures kept me breathless. Toren is a hero in any age. He and Kat are resourceful, daring characters who will take whatever measures are necessary to protect those dependent upon them. Get swept away in the grandeur, pageantry, and adventure of this well-researched novel that is sure to capture your imagination and leave you panting for more from this talented author.
