:) love this book. Not disappointed. I can see why fans who read these first would have trouble getting used to Fever. But we all get addicted in the end....
I' was so addicted to JZB from Fever, I had last book depression... Highlander has made me forget the dear beast, and I'm all about a man in a kilt!!!
As for anyone writing bad things on the narrator, I do not understand! Phil Gigante is the voice of gods. He is so shockingly good in last two fever books, I am sorry he didn't read it all. This is his first romance novel. Give him a chance!! This man is Jericho Barrons for godsake. ;)

I enjoyed the general time travel and romance story line, but the heroine's initial motive for romance was somewhat irritating (she wanted to get her "cherry plucked" - repeatedly noted).
Although part of a series - this story could easily stand alone. It was certainly good enough that I immediately purchased others in the series!
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 wonde..Show More »rful 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've loved Scottish Highland novels since I read The Bride, by Julie Garwood. I considered her the "go-to" author of highlander novels. Many authors pen Scottish romance novels. I recently read a review of such a novel that said, "Highlander novels: if you've read one, you've read them all." Well, that is certainly NOT true of Karen Moning's series.
Every book in this series is filled with fantasy, true love, and the hottest highlanders in the genre. This series has surprised me with fresh and new storylines that had me swearing each book was better than the last. Just when I think she can't possibly top her previous book, she blows me away with a uniquely beautiful, sexy and engrossing story.
This is the last of the full-length books in this series. It involves a 9th century legendary Celtic Druid, Cian Mackellan who is stuck in a spell that has imprisoned him in a magic mirror for 11 centuries. Tricked by a dark sorcerer, Cian convinces a beautiful graduate student, Jessica St. James, to help him get free of the mirror. He wants vengeance on the powerful sorcerer who bespelled him. With the Jessica's help, Cian revisits his land in the highlands to exact his revenge in the lands that he grew up on. Jessica and Cian have an instant strong attraction, and along the way they're feelings grow.
But can a man stuck alone for 11 centuries really fall in love? And is his need for vengeance stronger than the bond theyve forged in the short time they have together?
Filled with extraordinary twists and turns, a cast of your favorite characters from past books, this story has the passion, intrigue, and even a bit of dark magic, making it a positively fascinating page-turner which I finished in one sitting.
Narrated by the great Phil Gigante, I have nothing but praise for this magical story of good, evil, love, honor, sacrifice and family.

Coupled with great time travelling stories, Phil Gigante brings all of Karen's books to life and his Scottish accents are so sexy and spot on (and I'm Scottish), I love his voice, its one of the best on Audible.
