An historical fantasy adventure set in post-Culloden Scotland.
"Go out and tell all those you meet, Caledon has risen. Caledon will be protected and defended. And to you who would cause her harm, be prepared. A new fight has come."
After the destruction of the Jacobite forces at Culloden, Scotland is divided, vulnerable and leaderless, with survivors from both sides seeking to make sense of the battles they have fought against their fellow Scots.
James Og flees Drumossie, seeking the protection of his uncle's house in Sutherland. It is here James learns that the Northern Highlands hold a secret power only he can wield: Caledon. When Ensign John Mackay begins hunting Og's family, James realises he must harness this power to defeat the enemies of Scotland.
But, as the ageless Caledon awakes, so too does an ancient evil. When it allies with Mackay, the small Clan of Caledon faces enemies at every turn, discovering that even those closest to them may seek to destroy them.
“You who harm my people, you shall pay for this. I am Caledon and, with each suffering my people endure, my enemies shall feel the intensity of my pain.”
It is 1747. Danger haunts the depleted Clan of Caledon once again as a stranger arrives in Golspie, with a startling knowledge of the group.
After the rollercoaster of events in the first book of Caledon, the clan regroup to find a new strength. However, there is a stranger who has arrived in Golspie...a stranger who has an unnatural knowledge of the Clan of Caledon, and their eile.
The clan battle against a new enemy, while trying to always outwit the militia and the witches. But success is far from certain, and one clansman may have to turn against them for the greater good.
The Caledon series is packed full of adventure, while still keeping within the historical boundaries of the 18th century. If you’re interested in Scottish history, or mythology, then this new take will have you glued to the page.
James Og and his clan are the
seventh incarnation of Caledon.
