As the acclaimed Highland Warrior series progresses, more characters appear, more storylines intersect, and a fine first page filled with names and relationships is a welcome opening to this Highland paranormal romance. After all, there are present and past sibling loyalties to consider, as well as ancient demons, vampires and more, plus castles in Scotland and America, or simply “elsewhere.” But readers, whether faithful of forgetful, will quickly come to speed with the tale, as characters’ natural musings bring earlier histories to life. If it all gets a little rushed at times, just pick out the earlier books and read from the start!
There’s life and death in this story, with cruel tortures and surprising humanity found in the strangest places. But there’s also romance and a storyarc that reveals dark mysteries behind the scenes. Luckily, love is a power for the present, and evil isn’t as one-dimensional as it might seem. Who will fall? Who will be redeemed? And how will these warrior brothers, out of time, resolve the question of where they were meant to be?
The answers still lie in future books, but the balance of past and present mores is filled with intriguing questions of fate and loyalty, while ancient warriors faced with modern-day conveniences (not to mention modern-day, warrior wives) offer plenty of humor, romantic tension, and fun in a romantic adventure that definitely adds depth and mystery to the series.
Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review. It’s a fun series, best read in order. But please, when does the next one come out?
