Portent by George MacDonald is a captivating story that transports readers to a mysterious and enchanting world. The author's vivid descriptions and compelling narrative kept me glued to the pages from beginning to end.

The characters are well-developed and intriguing, each with their own unique backstory and motivations. The protagonist is a strong and determined young woman who must navigate a world filled with danger and darkness. MacDonald does an excellent job of building tension and suspense throughout the story, keeping readers on the edge of their seats.

The world-building in Portent is rich and immersive, drawing readers into a fantastical realm filled with magic, mythical creatures, and ancient mysteries. MacDonald's writing is lyrical and evocative, bringing the setting to vibrant life.

Overall, Portent is a mesmerizing and atmospheric read that will appeal to fans of fantasy and adventure. George MacDonald's storytelling is masterful, and I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a thrilling and immersive escape into a world of fantasy and wonder.

Book Description:
Overshadowed by the dark legend of the murderous rider of the horse with the loose shoe, Duncan Campbell sets out from his home in the Highlands to make his fortune in the world. When he finds the woman whose destiny is mingled with his, he must overcome first her indifference, then the malice of her family, then the forces of space and time. Will he ever put to rest the old curse?

George MacDonald was an influence on many famous fantasy writers, including C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Madeleine L'Engle. This fantasy romance derives from MacDonald's own Celtic tradition of the "Second Sight". It is a daydream, but one which holds up a mirror to human nature and shows us the truth of ourselves, as well as being a work of art in itself.
