The Crossing: Arlan’s Pledge


Rhiannon has long felt out of place. Her love of classic Celtic lore and language does not fit with this modern world. So when a warrior of old rescues her, why does she feel this is not her destiny? Romance slowly grows between Rhiannon and Arlan as they explore the difference between their worlds and purposes. In The Crossing: Arlan’s Pledge, Jenn Lees weaves two worlds and many characters into this uniquely Celtic portal fantasy that alternates between ancient Dal Cruinne and modern-day Scotland. This epic story with a low-magic world explores concepts of purpose and the response of someone who feels her destiny has been stolen.

Best for: Adult fans of epic portal fantasy and romance.

Discern: Violence in a war setting, sexual abuse of women relating to wars, sensual descriptions of men.
