Took my breath away

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.

Loved this book!!!

This is a great book to listen to! Cloe Zanders finds herself helping Daegus MacKelter, who has 13 evil spirits sharing his body and trying to take him over. Will he give up all to ravage Cloe? Will Cloe give up everything to go to Scotland with a man she doesn't even know to try to free him from these evil spirits? Does she even believe him or does she think he is a crazy, but goood looking man!?! What will they do besides fall in love? This is Ms. Moning's 5th book in the series. You don't need to read the first three but it would be helpful if you read the fourth book, KISS OF A HIGHLANDER, first. Many of the characters in KISS appear in this book, if only briefly. I found this book fun to listen to and will listen again soon. Enjoy!
