Brenna has been in love with Rhys since she was a little girl. Both live on the magical Isle of Avalon and have Druid magic. Rhys's magic is that he can see others that also have Druid magic and Brenna is a Seer, or someone that can see what is going to happen in the future or what is happening in the now.
For a while now Brenna has been having a nightmare or vision of a woman getting murdered. It has made her lose sleep not knowing who, when, how, or where this tragic event was going to happen. That is until Myrddin, a Druid wizard shows up and takes her through the Lost Lands 300 years into the future. Here is where Brenna will find her destiny and the source of her vision. When Rhys finds out that Brenna has gone he finds the trail of Myrddin's magic and follows Brenna to save her, help her and maybe finally tell her his true feelings.
Through most of the book, Rhys and Brenna are fighting the feelings they have for one another. Rhys feels he shouldn't think about Brenna the way he does because he has known her since she was a little girl and at one point thought of her as a little, annoying sister. Brenna is very open to Rhys about her feelings toward him though he keeps trying to talk her out of them. Finally, when Brenna is in trouble, Rhys comes to her rescue and that is when you know that together they can overcome anything.
I loved this book and read it in one day. I couldn't put it down. I found myself reading it here and there and carrying it around the house with me so I could read it at every open opportunity I could find. The relationship between Rhys and Brenna is what pulled me in. I just couldn't wait to see what would happen next and when Rhys would finally realize he couldn't live without Brenna.
