This review is from: Dagon’s Blood (Paperback)

Set in Scotland and England during the late 1700’s Jacobite struggle, Dagon’s Blood carries you into the fray. It is a story centered by Leigha, a beautiful girl of nobility who is naive to the world yet shows she has the strength to survive unimaginable situations. She captivates the men who love her and those who want to posses her. Virginica Lee’s thorough research is evident in the details of the era from grand manors to humble cottages; Lords and Ladies to housekeepers; travel by horseback, carriages, ships that took a day rather than hours, a week rather than a day, a month rather than a week and months to sail the surrounding seas. In this day of constant communication, it is hard to imagine the isolation of those left behind. I relived my tour through the highlands of Scotland as I read the description of the lovely countryside. I was most impressed by Virginia’s writing, especially the common dialect of the time. It was easy to know who was speaking – nobleman or peasant. The author knows how to weave her story within the history of the time. I highly recommend Historical Fiction “DAGON’S BLOOD” to readers who enjoy the genre; those who like Romance and readers who enjoy a well written novel.

This review is from: Dagon’s Blood (Kindle Edition)

Dagon’s Blood is a beautifully written epic period romance. Set in 1745 around the time of the Jacobite rebellion, the story follows Leigha Clairemont whose father’s involvement in the rebellion changes Leigha’s life forever. Forced to flee her home and seek protection from a family friend, Leigha finds love. As the conflict between Scotland and England continues to escalate, Leigha is ripped away from her new life and is forced on a trip that turns into an adventure filled with danger and heartache. Through all of her struggles, Leigha’s strength comes through and she is able to make new friends and find that love can be both a blessing and a burden.

Virginia Lee has created a beautiful world full of amazing characters. The vivid pictures she describes carry the reader along with Leigha as she tries to overcome heartache to find true love and happiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heroine Who Transcends Time, May 19, 2012

This review is from: Dagon’s Blood (Kindle Edition)

If you’re looking for a great romantic read, look no farther than “Dagon’s Blood.” You’ll find dashing men with hearts of gold, and a villain whose deceit and treachery curdled my blood. Then there’s Leigha, a heroine whose beauty and passion for life are so intoxicating, she captures heart and soul the men she meets, from seasoned soldier to cutthroat pirate.

With meticulous research, from the events surrounding the Jacobite rebellion to the foods and dishes of Scotland, Lee evokes the time and place with stunning prose. The book is filled with love and high adventure, but what appealed to me most were the characters, whose motives were complex and whose secrets ran deep. Set in a time when values and ethics made a difference, a strong theme of family loyalty runs through the novel. It’s been some months since I finished it, but I find I still think about the good people in this book, and the kindness they showed to each other. While Leigha is a woman of her time, her spirit and drive for freedom are those of a modern woman. This works on a double level, affecting both the other characters and the reader, who may identify with both the classic and modern aspects of Leigha’s personality.

This is a book to be savored, like the fine brandy in Lord Dagon’s study. But unlike fiery spirits, which fades, the characters in “Dagon’s Blood” stay with you long after the book is finished.

Dagon’s Blood grabbed hold of me and never let go. Upon finishing this book I remembered why I fell in love with romance.
Set in the mid 1700’s, during the conflict of Scotland and England, the lovely Lady Leigha and her three virile suitors take you on a historical journey of tragedy and triumph.
Virginia Lee writes with such emotion and paints extraordinary pictures with her words. You will fall in love with romance all over again.
I was glowing when I finished reading and look forward to being taken away again.

The true romance novel is back and stunningly so.

Leigha Clairemont is a young woman riding home from a jaunt upon her proud steed Silvering when her home is besieged by usurpers.

She valiantly charges into the fray only to be taken captive after killing her father’s attacker with Silvering’s sharp hooves.

This is just the beginning of a journey that will take you across vistas of courage, betrayal, romance, and triumph.

Virginia Lee has brought back the long-awaited epic novel, written in the flowing style of masterful ability and well worth the finger-nail-bite of a read that it is.

Hats off to you Ms. Lee, you’ve written a classical piece of romance that will stand the test of time.
