Another masterpiece by Miranda Charlesh Rebecca never believed in the Fae or Faerie legends, let alone considered she was descended from one.

As the talisman’s secrets are revealed and passion ignites, Cailen and Rebecca must confront the looming heartache that threatens their future.
Review: I’m not sure what I was expecting from this book. I’m not a big fan of historical romance and from the description I kind of got the feeling that is what I was going to get. I was so wrong. Yes there is history in The Guardian: Shadowstone Legend but is the type that I can handle. This book is set in present time and introduces us to Rebecca who is looking for her missing mother who seems to have disappeared out of thin air.
Set in Scotland, Angela Aaron transports me there with how descriptive she is. From the sunsets to the ruins from a time long gone. I can see myself there in the fields of green with lavender all around. It is just such a beautiful picture that was painted for the reader and it made me enjoy it that much more. Told from the point of view of Cailen and Rebecca. It really lets you see into how the two lead characters are feeling throughout the book. Insight into their beliefs and what they truly want and why they can’t have it.
For the detail and for peaking my interest in a genre that I don’t normally enjoy I give The Guardian: Shadowstone Legend a 5 Rose rating.
