When Mack and Jamie MacNeil are kidnapped by the sinister Ben Sparks, a dangerous adventure is set in motion. Forced to travel through the North American wilderness on the eve of the American Revolution, Mack and Jamie's very lives are on the line. As they try to thwart the evil that stalks them, they meet many brave allies, participate in thrilling political intrigue, and even find love.
It is a journey that neither Mack nor Jamie would have chosen, but once set upon its path, their lives will be changed forever.
Be sure to read the first book in The Circle of Silver Chronicles, A Circle of Silver, for more tales of the MacNeils' adventures in the New World.
Her [Maxine Trottier's] impeccable research translates to superb detail, but never at the expense of adventure and romance.
