This is the final book in the Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning. I am a great Diana Gabaldon fan and I must say I found this series is as wonderful as the Outlander books.
In "The Dark Highlander" we follow the life and love of Dageus MacKeltar through time and back. Suffice to say the characters are wonderful, sassy, humorous, and heart wrenching.
The story is complicated and intriguing. I found myself holding my breath and crying at times throughout. We pick up where the fourth book ended and learn more of the characters from "Kiss of the Highlander". This is one of the reasons I think I enjoyed this book so much. I felt bereft when "Kiss of the Highlander" ended and wanted more. I was totally delighted and never let down to this end.
The characters are charming, at times ruthless and always deep and rich. Adam Black returns initially to my chagrin. Without giving away too much he is in fine form and I found myself liking him more and more.
Phil Gigante narrates all of the books in the series. His accents are flawless to my untrained ear. So I can only offer that I enjoyed the narration with no problems and a great deal of joy.
I highly recommend the entire series.
I found The Irresistible Henry House to be a wonderful read. The concept was new to me and the main characters, although not very sympathetic were well constructed.
The period covered in the book, 40s to 60s, I could identify with so perhaps that is why I enjoyed the book so much.
Henry House and his many mothers in the early part of the book were fun. Oliver Wyman did a fantastic job with the narration.
I would recommend this book.
I have read all of the Plum books and I must say Fearless Fourteen is one of my favorites. There was Stephanie, Morelli, Ranger and all the regulars plus some old friends and new.
Mooner was back which is where I got most of my chuckles. He is such a rich character and the way he interacts with Stephanie is extremely humorous. Oh there was a monkey too which had me laughing out loud.
The two hunks in Stephanie's life are back finer than ever. If I was Stephanie I don't think I could choose so I guess she shouldn't for a while yet.
The central story is simply great and all of the smaller ones weave in well so fun and sleuthing builds nicely. In the end we are left waiting for ------- Fifteen. I can't wait!
Lorelei King does a wonderful narration. I must say I had a bit of trouble transitioning from C.J. Critt but now I am very comfortable with Miss King.
