Moira Sinclair is the oldest of three sisters and has accepted the lonely life of a druid priestess. With her siblings married and safe from harm, she now must go on a journey asked of her by the head of the druids, to save the Fae from danger. The purpose of her journey is to find a key to enter the realm of the Fae, and she must face secrets she has suppressed from herself for years. By her side is Dartayous, her protector who has been with her since childhood, and they have been at odds with each other since.

An immortal and powerful druid warrior, Dartayous has kept others at a distance, so that he didn’t have to watch them die. He keeps a very close watch over Moira as ordered by the head of the druids and she has found a way into his heart, without him realizing it. He finally surrenders his heart, but isn’t able to say the words to Moria craves to hear. It only made it harder for the two of them to communicate because in the past, they both resisted each other’s attraction.

I was very curious about Highland Dawn because there are so many ways this story could have unfolded. This is the third installment of the Druids Glen series and it’s truly a lovely read. When it becomes clear who the main characters would be, I really got interested. Moira and Dartayous kept their distances from each other and neither realized that there was love between them in the beginning of the journey. At times, I got frustrated with them and their stubbornness for not just talking things out.

Donna Grant continues spinning a wonderful tale of druids, finding true love and what can happen in the mist of danger. Even though Moira is a little distant with her sisters, they love her and want to see her happy, too. The main reason the characters keeps going is the prophecy surrounding the sisters and how it will be fulfilled, in order for their lives to be free of danger. Again Ms. Grant has wowed me and left me hanging on for more of the Druids Glen series.
