In Son of the Sword, J. Ardian Lee transported us to a land of unsurpassed beauty-at a time when its people faced their darkest hour. Now, in Outlaw Sword, we return with modern-day Dylan Matheson to eighteenth-century Scotland-where he is a hunted outlaw-as he faces every mortal danger to reunite with his true love and save his newborn son from the dark fate history has in store for him.

More historical romance than fantasy, this sequel to Lee's Son of the Sword (2001) offers time travel but little magic. Once again Dylan Matheson, modern-day karate teacher/ swordsman, ends up in the Scottish Highlands in the time of Bonnie Prince Charlie, a dirty, smelly, basic-necessities-only place. Dylan has left the defeated Rob Roy at Sherriffmuir, though his wounds still ache after a hasty trip back to the present for a patch-up job. Dylan goes to Edinburgh to track down his lover, Cait, and their young son whom he's never seen. Of course, a multitude of problems ensue. Dylan is now an outlaw in the eyes of the English because he fought on Rob Roy's side, while Cait has married since he saw her last. Furthermore, Cait's husband bears Dylan a grudge and is itching to kill him at first opportunity. The one fey element takes the form of Sinann the fairy, whose talents include time travel and the ability to pop buttons off the clothing of Dylan's adversaries. When he's not fighting, getting caught up in smuggling operations or hiding from the redcoats, Dylan finds time to raise sheep and bootleg his own whiskey. This story goes down like a historical romance, with a supernatural twist to appeal to fantasy readers, many of whom will likely feel cheated that the action is so commonplace. Lee puts her historical research to good use in the fight scenes, but, alas, there are too few of these. FYI: J. Adrian Lee is the pseudonym for Julianne Lee.

Transported to 18th-century Scotland by the fairy Sinnan, martial artist Dylan Matheson found a new home and a woman he loved before he was returned to his world to save his own life. Fearing for the safety of his beloved Cait and the child of their passion, Dylan returns again to try to change history, knowing that this time his journey leads in only one direction. Lee's sequel to Son of the Sword portrays a man's unyielding courage and devotion to family and honor. This romantic historical fantasy should have wide appeal. For most fantasy collections.
