In the harsh Scottish highlands of 1565, superstition and treachery threaten a truce between rival clans. It's a weak truce at first, bound only by an arranged engagement between Anne MacGregor and Niall Campbell-the heirs of the feuding families.
While Niall wrestles with his suspicions about a traitor in his clan, Anne's actions do not go unnoticed. And as accusations of witchcraft abound, the strong and sometimes callous Campbell heir must fight for Anne's safety among disconcerted clan members. Meanwhile his own safety in threatened with the ever-present threat of someone who wants him dead.
Will Niall discover the traitor's identity in time? Can Anne find a way to fit into her new surroundings? Will the two learn to love each other despite the conflict? With a perfect mix of a burgeoning romance and thrilling suspense, this book is historical fiction at its best.

|Dull and Predictable at Best Mar 14, 2007|
|Morgan hooks the reader early on in her story telling. I was excited and anticipated not only the rest of the book but also the rest of the series. However, by trying to cultivate some sort of romance between the main characters, Morgan's story quickly became predictable and dull, at best. I forced myself to finish the novel in order to properly critique it and finishing the story felt like work, instead of enjoyment. I ended up reselling the book at a used book store. Save your money and time- get something else.|

Betrayed by his own kinsman, Niall Campbell was cast into the dungeon of his enemies, the cursed MacGregors. In exchange for his life, the fierce Wolf of Cruachan had to end the Highland feud and join the warring families by handfasting himself to the spirited heiress of clan MacGregor.
At first, young Anne had no desire to be locked away in a castle keep with the dreaded warrior. But after Niall stormed the battlements of her yearning heart, she eagerly succumbed to his fiery kisses--only to discover a secret enemy who had the power to crush their newfound love like a handful of heather.
And my review:
What is the big deal about this book? I tried to read it and couldn't even get to the third chapter. The author tried to make it interesting by stuffing it full of political intrigue. Instead of being entertaining, this made it boring and confusing. The author tried to throw so many characters and details and plot twists out right away that I was as lost as if I'd been dropped in the middle of a jungle without a map or a compass.
Do I recommend this? Only as a cure to insomnia. Would I try another book by this author? No way.
|Disappointing Dec 13, 2005|
|Had I read this book prior to reading Liz Curtis Higgs trilogy I might have given it a higher rating. But, after reading it on the heels of "Thorn In My Heart", "Fair Is The Rose" and "Whence Came A Prince"...it doesn't compare. The story line is under developed and the characters unbelievable. I enjoyed reading it, but my recommendation would be to spend the money and time on the Liz Curtis Higgs' trilogy.|

|Fantastic !!!!!!!!!! Totally Impressive !!!!!!!! Aug 22, 2005|
|I loved Child of the Mist. It has a brilliant plot with lots of adventure, action and romance . |
The characters are excellent - I fell in love with Anne (the heroine) and I can't wait for the next book in the series to meet her again.
I would like to give it more than five stars and after reading Child of the Mist I'm going to read all Kathleen Morgan's books because she is a special writer.
If you like historical romances you certainly will love this book. Read it.
