FANTASTIC SERIES

Ms. Moning has a great passion for storytelling. More than once I was tempted to highlight sentences or passages because they were phrased so well. Of course, I was so engrossed in the book that I could not be bothered to put the book down long enough to get a highlight...
Ms. Moning has a great passion for storytelling. More than once I was tempted to highlight sentences or passages because they were phrased so well. Of course, I was so engrossed in the book that I could not be bothered to put the book down long enough to get a highlighter.
This story is fun to read and is based on supernatural beings called Berserkers which were supposed to have existed in Scotland many years ago. We watch the character of Grimm go through a transformation as he attempts to hide his true nature from the world and then, through circumstance, reveal himself to close friends and to the woman that he loves.
One of the things that I love about Ms. Moning's books is they all have this element of fearing to reveal our true self to the person we love the most, even when that person is the person who understands us best of all. When the moment finally comes to share ourselves, we find that the other person knew the truth and accepted us all along.
I love the scene in the church when Jillian's father says that love involves having passion, so much passion that you'd be willing to kidnap your beloved before she turned to someone else. You really get the sense of divine intervention in this book. This man and this woman are made for one another and no matter what they do to deny it, fate always steps in and thrusts them together until they are ready to accept it.
I highly recommend this book and pretty much anything else by this author. She has a fabulous way of combining celtic mysticism and historical romance without feeling forced. This is a fantastic series.

Good, but wasn't cohesive to the rest of the series

This book was good, but it was more of a stand alone boo rather than part of a series. Barely any mention of Hawk and Adrienne, and absolutely nothing about Adam Black or any other fae. I was disappointed because I wanted a continuation or at least some mention of fae...
This book was good, but it was more of a stand alone boo rather than part of a series. Barely any mention of Hawk and Adrienne, and absolutely nothing about Adam Black or any other fae. I was disappointed because I wanted a continuation or at least some mention of fae creatures. It's a good book, it just didn't really belong in the Highlander series. And you don't need to read this book to keep up with the rest of the series.

    Boring!

    This book was a huge disapointment! I had read the "Fever" series and loved it, so I was looking forward to this series. I wont' be buying any others of the series. I thought the plot was predictable and the characters shallow.
