Anything with the words 'Historical Highland' together under the romance section and I just can't resist them but I thought this would be 1 book but it's actually 3 novellas about each of the MacLauchlan brothers who are PARANORMAL Berserkers.
To be honest, at the start I didn't think I was going to like this new series however I soon changed my mind - the Berserkers aren't the stereotypical alpha Highland hunks - they are also paranormal and turn into fighting machines at the sight or smell of blood and each have different abilities. In these novellas each of the brothers find their mates under tense and dangerous circumstances but once found they certainly don't waste any time claiming them in a very hot and passionate way.
Because they are each short they have to pack a lot in and I sometimes felt that they could have been more enjoyable if they were longer - but hey they weren't so - they were action packed, full of passion, sex and killing by likeable unforgettable characters. There's magic, mayhem, murder and a mystical ancient deity that's just starting to get in on the act.
Worth a credit? Yes, it was pure escapism, very pleasurable and I'll definitely download the next instalment.

I have to be honest, historical romance is not a genre I typically follow. In this case, I was looking for something new, and was intrigued by the promise of berserker mythology. I was hooked from the very first word. Derek Perkins could probably read a chinese take-out menu and have it sound like a Shakespearian sonnet. So much the better when the material he's reading is Byrne's excellent dialog and poetic prose. This trilogy was so much more than I expected, from the skillful weaving of history and mythology to the make-you-squee-all-alone-in-your-room paranormal romance. This story has it all, and Miss Byrne has a new fan! I can't wait to see (and hear) what she does next!
