    WONDERFUL END TO THE DARK SWORDS AND BEGINNING OF THE DARK WARR


    WONDERFUL END TO THE DARK SWORDS AND BEGINNING OF THE DARK WARRIORS!!


    DARKEST HIGHLANDER by Donna Grant is an exciting historical paranormal romance set in Scotland. This is the sixth book in the "Dark Sword" series and brings it a its conclusion,but can br read as a stand alone. See "DANGEROUS HIGHLANDER,FORBIDDEN HIGHLANDER,WICKED HIGHLANDER,UNTAMED HIGHLANDER,SHADOW HIGHLANDER".This is Sonya and Broc's story. Broc is a Scottish highland warrior with Poraxus,the God of manipulation unbound within him,who believes he has a curse and anyone he is close to will die. Sonya,a Druidess with the magic of healing,who believes she has now lost her healing magic. Sonya,fleeing the safety of the MacLeod Castle,which sends Broc on a mission to locate and protect,even if it costs him his life. Together, Sonya and Broc face their worst enemy,the evil Deirdre,while they fight their attraction to each other. Broc has been attracted to Sonya since she was a small child and he saved her and her sister,who is now dead. They are on a mission to find an artifact Deirdre needs to accomplish her desire to bring darkness and evil to the world. "Darkness Highlander" brings the "Dark Swords" series to a conclusion which brings in a new series," Dark Warriors" into the light. As, four of the Dark Warriors are thrown four centuries into the future following one of their own,and a traitor who has been forced to Deirdre's cause. What a delightful way to close out one series and begin another,while there is a few questions left unanswered from the "Dark Swords"series,I do hope we will see more from the "Dark Swords" warriors along the way with the new "Dark Warriors"series. Donna Grant has written another story full of passion,sweet sensuality,Scottish warriors,adventure,danger,romance and of course love. I LOVE,LOVE this Scottish paranormal series and looked forward to hearing from the rest of the warriors in the future. A must read! Received for an honest review from the publisher. Details can be found at St. Martin's Paperbacks,published by St. Martin's Press,the author's website,and My Book Addiction and More.

    **Coming in June 2012 from St. Martin's Paperbacks "Dark Warrior" series by Donna Grant, "MIDNIGHT'S MASTER"*

    Another Hit!!!!!!!!!!!

    Broc story is here!! I suppose I could just stop there.. Broc's story Darkest Highlander is the sixth in Dona Grant's Dark Sword Series and by far her most compelling. It was so intense, I was forced to put it down and walk away on a regular basis. Now, I know that sounds just wrong but for me.. when something is so gripping, when you are never quite sure what is going to happen next and when you are held on the edge of suspense.. to me I have to put it down and walk away.. or I go nuts. This was one of those stories.. I spent most of my time while reading this book on the edge of my seat.. chewing my nails and wonder what was going to happen next.

    Broc has always been my favorite, he was broody, intense and BLUE.. well when his god took over he's blue and of course Broc is the only warrior with wings. And there is just something sexy about wings. I wonder what I would do if I actually met someone with wings? They are just so very sexy in books.

    Broc spent centuries of his life, once his god was unbound as a spy in Deidre's fortress under the mountain. Forced to round up druids and deliver them to Deidre he never really thought he would find a way out. Then when the Warriors chose to stand together against her, Broc stood with them. Finally able to share his true feelings and loyalties.. he is a true asset to the Warriors.

    Sonya, the strongest of the Druids had a crisis of faith and lost the use of her magic. Feeling lost, alone and just a little betrayed she flees the safety of the castle and strikes out on her own. I am not quite sure why such a practical character would do something quite this stupid but I kind of liked it. So many smart women find themselves doing stupid things then later asking themselves what the heck was I thinking?

    Broc and Sonya find themselves in one adventure after another.. From Sonya fleeing the fortress and falling victim to wolves to Broc falling into Deidre's hands these two seem determined to save each other and yet never quite admit how they feel. Ms Grant does an excellent job keeping us entertained and hiding the fact that these two really do act without thinking just a bit too much.
    Sometimes books tick me off because it is so obvious characters are meant for each other, I just want to smack them upside the head. The fact is if they did then the story would really pretty much be over before it ever began. And Broc and Sonya had a wonderful story..

    We saw some interesting previews on what is going to happen next in the series and one whammy of a surprise. Obviously I can't share but this book was worth reading if only for the surprise..

    I have been infatuated with Broc ever since Wicked Highlander, w

    I have been infatuated with Broc ever since Wicked Highlander, when Quinn MacLeod was abducted by Deirdre and taken to Cairn Toul, the mountain where she kills Druids and uses her black magic to unleash the gods inside the Highlanders. The wyrran and Warriors gather there, waiting for the time when Deirdre will send her army to destroy the world. Broc played the good and bad guy so well, you never knew which side he was really on until recently. Broc has Poraxus, the God of Manuipulation bound to him and is the only warrior with wings and able to fly. His power is that he can locate anyone, anywhere.

    Broc has been watching over Sonya and her sister Anice ever since he found them as babies and rescued them. He was one of Deirdre's Warriors back then so he hid them in a safe place where Deirdre could never find them. Being that Sonya and her sister are Druids, Deirdre would kill them to steal their life force. Broc has secretly been in love with Sonya ever since she became a woman but is determined to stay away from her. He believes himself cursed because any woman he has ever cared for has died and he's determined to protect Sonya from his curse. When Broc finds out that Sonya is gone from the castle he sets out to find her before Deirdre does.

    When the last book "Shadow Highlander" ended, Sonya's life was turned upside down. Her healing powers have been failing her and her sister Anice was murdered by Deirdre's wyrran. Grief stricken over the death of her sister and heartbroken over Broc's harsh reaction, Sonya leaves the safety of MacLeod Castle and runs into the forest. Injured and not able to heal herself because of her failing magic, Sonya is in grave danger.

    When Broc finds her, Sonya is near death with an infection from a cut on her hand. Because of a bad storm, Broc takes her to the nearest town and stays at a hotel to nurse her back to health. While there they run into Deirdre's wyrran and Broc is captured and taken back to Cairn Toul. Sonya follows and is determined to save Broc from Deirdre's wrath.

    SO much happens in this book. I'm going to leave the review at this because this book changes everything in the series and leads into the new DARK WARRIOR series so I don't want to give away any spoilers. I've been waiting a long time to learn more about Broc and I could not wait for him to get together with Sonya and as always, Donna Grant did not disappoint. The ending happened a little too quickly but it's because the entire plot and story line have been taken into a new direction so it was understandable.

    The DARK SWORD series is one of my top favorite series and always will be. I can't wait for the first DARK WARRIORS book, "Midnight's Master" to be released (which BTW is on May 22) to see the new journey Donna has sent these amazing warriors on.

    Kirby and the Dark Phoenix: Chapter 3

    ((Ello! Epicness here! I posted some trivia about the origins of this fanfic and the prologue at two phoenix res 1! I'll post some more later!))<p>Kirby opened his eyes. He stood up and looked at the results of the catastrophe. The throne room was ruined, Epic was limping, and King Dedede looked at the large hole. "Man, I got me a ki<_>ller headache!" Groaned Epic. "We're in some serious trouble!" Said Dedede. Kirby agreed. Daro must be looking for the Dark Sword right now. Epic said "Sorry about your castle, Your Majesty." King Dedede looked up. "Ah, it doesn't matter. What DOES matter is how we are going to stop Daro." Kirby gestured to assure him they'll figure it out. Epic translated for good measure "We'll find out." King Dedede nodded. "Think you guys should get home. Don't worry, my servants and I will repair the castle." Kirby and Epic nodded before limping off to thier respective homes.<p>***<p>Kirby sat at his bed, nursing his wounds. A half-eaten tomato was beside him. Epic gave him a phone call that she'll be researching and rereading the legends surrounding the Light Phoenix and Daro. Kirby heard a chirp at his window, though he paid no attention to it. They the chirping grew louder and louder, until Kirby had to open the window beside his bed to see what's up. A pure white sparrow flew in. He thought it would be a normal albino sparrow until it spoke. "Hello, are you the one called Kirby?" Kirby nearly fell over surprise. Quickly regaining his balance, he nodded. "Great! I'm Lumin. I was a servant of Lira, the Light Phoenix." Kirby's star-shaped heart skipped a beat. Maybe Lumin knows how to beat Daro! As if reading his mind, Lumin said "I do know how to beat the Light Phoenix. But can you take me to your friend, first?" Nodding, Kirby led the way to Epic's house.<p>((Gotta clear something up for all newbies to the Kirby franchise. The tomato is a healing power-up. The Max Tomato, as you can see, completely heals you. Also, the fact that Kirby's heart is in a shape of a star came from Kirby Mass Attack. And please tell me what you think! Epicness out!))

    Reviewed by Shannon, Book provided by St. Martin’s Press, and Review originally posted at Romancing the Book.
    If it weren’t for the fact that I had read Midnight Master (book one in the Dark Warrior series and picks up where this book left off) I would have been completely lost with this story. However, Donna Grant has created a group of Highlander Warriors that manage to pull you into the story, regardless of whether or not you understand what’s happening.
    I liked Broc and Sonya, but of the two, Broc was my favorite. Broc was a man who spent many, many years as a prisoner of Deirdre and felt he was tainted by her evil. His actions with helping the MacLeod’s may demonstrate how he’s siding with good, but he can’t see past what he was forced to do while under Deirdre’s control. It takes Sonya to make Broc see past what has been done to what might be and see understand, at his core, he is a worthy man. Sonya’s strong enough to stand up to Broc and confident enough in him to encourage his loss of control when he needs to and know he won’t hurt those he cares for.
    I enjoyed the romance between Broc and Sonya. While their romance wasn’t one that evoked strong emotional responses, it was sweet, sexy and perfect for them.
    This was an enjoyable read that will keep you entertained for a few hours. However, I will strongly recommend that the series be read in order to avoid any confusion.

    one intense book

    If you could only see through the computer screen as I was reading this, you would have seen a woman jumping up and down in her seat and hollering at the many different scenes that are portrayed throughout these pages. Darkest Highlander is one intense book, grabbing me from the very beginning and holding on until I turned the very last page. I have not read any of the Dark Sword Novels by Donna Grant, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I am now determined to do just that. This book has had a powerful impact on me and I have found another author to add to my growing collection of must read novels. I would like to sincerely thank Ms. Grant for bringing this outstanding story to my attention and sharing her marvelous gift with the world. Danielle Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance & More
