Book Series: Dark Sword
Hair Color: shoulder length dark blond
Eye Color: Dark blue
From: Scotland – the Highlands
Significant Other: Reaghan, a Druid with potent magic
Signature Move: Slicing heads off with my claws
Enemies: Deirdre, a Druid with black magic intent of ruling the world and her wyrran, creatures of pure evil she created. And anyone associated with her.
Favorite Pastime: Hunting – and killing – wyrran
Other Facts: Was taken from my family by Deirdre to have the god within me unbound, thereby turning me into a Warrior. Instead of allowing my god control, I fought back and escaped Deirdre. I’m 250 years old with the ability to read people’s mind with a simple touch.
I’m Galen Shaw, a Highlander and immortal Warrior with a primeval god inside me. My god, Ycewold, the trickster god, was drug up from the pits of Hell by Druids in order to defeat Rome once and for all from Britain. It worked, but removing the gods proved to be…impossible. The gods were bound inside us and passed down through the generations to the strongest warriors in each family.
Mine was such a family.
Until an evil Druid, Deirdre, found the spell to unbind our gods. She thought she could control the Warriors, but there are some of us who fight back. Some of us who will do whatever it takes to end her.
Our gods demand blood and death, which we gladly give them in the form of tracking down and killing the wyrran – small yellow creatures created from evil. My ultimate goal is to kill Deirdre, and I willna stop until she’s dead.
I doona use a weapon since I’m a Warrior. As a Warrior, I have enhanced senses as well as incredible speed and strength. All I need to do is call up my god which will transform me…into something no’ quite human. Each god favors a color. Mine is green, to blend in with the forests of Scotland.
My skin will turn dark green, and green claws will grow from my fingers. The same green will overtake my eyes from corner to corner, and let’s no’ forget the fangs.
Between my deadly claws, strength, and speed, I am a weapon. One to be feared.
Add to that the ability of my god to read people’s minds with just a touch, and to be able to control that mind, and I’m no’ an enemy you want.
I’ve been battling wyrran and evil for over two hundred and fifty years. And I’m damned good at it. I’ve no’ ever lost a battle. It was my skill as a warrior which made me host to the god, and now with my god unbound, I’m unstoppable.
When you fight evil with unimaginable dark magic, you learn to become dangerous, sinister in your attack. No mercy. No regrets.
Donna Grant is the award winning author of more than twenty novels spanning multiple genres of romance – Scottish Medieval, historical, dark fantasy, time travel, erotic, and paranormal.
Donna was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica and Mexico. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.
Her childhood dream was to become a professional ballet dancer and study under the amazing Mikhail Baryshnikov. Though she never got to meet Baryshnikov, she did make it to New York City and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Later, Donna’s love of the romance genre and the constant stories running through her head prompted her to sit down and write her first book. Once that book was completed, there was no turning back.
Donna sold her first book in November 2005 while displaced from Hurricane Rita, a storm that destroyed portions of the Texas Gulf Coast. Since then, Donna has sold novels and novellas to both electronic and print publishers. Her books include several complete series such as The Druids Glen, The Shields, The Royal Chronicles, the Sisters of Magic, and the Dark Sword series.
Despite the deadlines and her voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two young children, three cats, and one long haired Chihuahua. She’s blessed with a proud, supportive husband who’s learned to cook far more than frozen chicken nuggets.
