Isobel MacInnes wakes up in present-day California, lunches in medieval Scotland, and by ten days’ end, falls in love with a man and his country, only to lose them in a heart-wrenching twist of fate . . .

Found in the arms of her second soul mate . . .

Forced to balance the delicate strands of time between two millennia . . .

Shocked by revelations rewriting the very foundations of history . . . of everything.

Isobel, a rising-star archaeology student, is dropped into two ancient worlds without warning . . . or her permission. Her fiery spirit resists the dependency thrust upon her. Amid frustration at her lack of control, she helplessly falls in love. Twice.

She struggles to adjust to the unimaginable demands of two leaders of men—a laird in the thirteenth-century Highlands and a Pict chieftain in a more ancient Scotland. Isobel transforms from an academic, hell-bent on obtaining archaeological recognition, to a woman striving to care for those she loves, and ultimately . . . into a fearless warrior risking everything to protect them.
 
 
 
 
 
I really wasn't sure if I was going to like this story at first but it turns out that I liked it more than I thought I would. Forged in Dreams and Magick is a story you have to pay close attention to to pick up the subtle clues Kat Bastion leaves as Isobel begins her journey.
After discovering a box that sucks her back in time with heart throb Iain the tale of love and confusion begin.
Isobel struggles to find her place in the new world she was brought to and to understand the man Iain is until she finds herself falling in love with him.
Before she has a chance to settle into her new surroundings and new found love for Iain, Isobel is again sucked into another time and finds herself falling for another man just as mysterious as Iain and a land far older than the first.
Isobel struggles to understand her feelings for the men she loves and the time in which she has found herself in.
Its easy to relate to her inner struggles and her situation because Kat does a fantastic job of making the reader love them as well.
A really great heartwarming read, I'd recommend to anyone - oh, and did I mention there were highlanders? Yummy.

The service of Britannia is not for the faint of heart--or conscience...

Emma Bannon, Sorceress Prime in service to Queen Victrix, has a mission: to find the doctor who has created a powerful new weapon. Her friend, the mentath Archibald Clare, is only too happy to help. It will distract him from pursuing his nemesis, and besides, Clare is not as young as he used to be. A spot of Miss Bannon's excellent hospitality and her diverting company may be just what he needs.

Unfortunately, their quarry is a fanatic, and his poisonous discovery is just as dangerous to Britannia as to Her enemies. Now a single man has set Londinium ablaze, and Clare finds himself in the middle of distressing excitement, racing against time and theory to find a cure. Miss Bannon, of course, has troubles of her own, for the Queen's Consort Alberich is ill, and Her Majesty unhappy with Bannon's loyal service. And there is still no reliable way to find a hansom when one needs it most...

The game is afoot. And the Red Plague rises.

The Red Plague Affair by Lilith Saintcrow is the second book of the Bannon and Clare books.

I really wish I had gotten to read the first book of this series because there are a lot of plot ties that link to the first book that I think would have made this book easier to understand. 
That being said this book is unlike any other that I've ever read. The Red Plague Affair really sort of made me think of Sherlock Holmes for the steam punk generation. 

Fun and full of laughable moments I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone.

Until next time book lovers...
