Forged in Dreams and Magick by Kat Bastion

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.


Ok...what can I say about this book...other than you SHOULD so go get it and read it.
Isobel is just one character that you can't help but love. I don't think I could handle even half of what she did.
As the preface states Isobel is shuffled from one love to another. It's crazy in a sense but makes the story one heck of a page turner.
I definitely won't be opening any strange boxes buried in the dirt anytime soon...There's no telling where I might get sent.
The story on a whole is wonderfully crafted, the characters are fun to read about, which in turn makes you want more even when the book is done. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.
Who wouldn't like romance, magic, mystery and great writing.
