Good morning and welcome to Tuesday Blog Share. Today, we’re talking about the quest tale. This isn’t fantasy or science fiction. This quest is a series of books that are westerns, centered around the Jacobean War and Irish Potato Famine in Europe.
Storm Rider stories all begin in either Scotland or Ireland. Each Storm Rider interferes in what he or she sees as a wrong and pays the ultimate price. They are chosen by Archangel Michael to embark on a quest, in order to stop the families involved in these battles before they can destroy the world.
Storm Rider—one called to stand between warring factions and bring about peace, no matter the consequences.
Phillip Wermeer receives this reward for defending the honor of a scullery maid, murdered by an earl in the eighteenth century. He’s given a gift, to protect those who have been attacked without provocation, because they have come upon individuals who believe they’re above all laws.
His duty is to stop two families, the Donovans originally from England and the Camerons a Scottish clan, from wreaking havoc on themselves and others. Throughout time, Phillip steps between these groups to prevent tragedy.
Will he ever stop the animus between these families?
Intervening in the doings of the upper class would bring trouble. Phillip had learned that lesson far too often in his short life. A stable hand of a mere seventeen years, he had rarely concentrated on just his job, for he felt he had more to contribute to this life than mucking out stalls, caring for horses, and cleaning tack.
“Stupid whore!” the man shouted. “I shall take all of ye associated with Lachlan Cameron and his bloody Scots warriors. They shall see what they’ve wrought upon their women and daughters by attacking England and my home!”
The sound of ripping cloth rent the morning air. Phillip took a step toward the castle but then thought better of his action. Getting involved now might spell the end of his employment at the earl’s stables, and he needed this job.
“Please, sir,” a girl begged. “I have no idea who you speak of. Don’t do this. I be pure.”
