Ian Moore-Morrans has crafted a novel of adventure, fantasy and romance set in the Scottish Highlands. In it, twin brothers from present-day Edinburgh hope to witness a “phantom battle” purported to take place annually at northern Loch Ashie. Instead they are engulfed in this battle between ancient Highlanders and Vikings which transports them back to the 12th Century. In their encounters with the local inhabitants they experience hostility, friendship, romance, death sentences and a supernatural reprieve. Finally a wizard-like being, “Ancient One,” attempts to help them return to the 21st Century.
About the Author

His high school was Campbeltown Grammar School and was told by his English teacher that he should become a journalist on leaving school. He always loved to write but was too busy earning a living to do so. It wasn’t until he finally retired that he found time to write and has been doing so since, completing seven books of different genres to date.
