It's taken him eleven centuries to find the right woman. He's not about to lose her now. Jessi St. James has GOT to get a life. Too many hours studying ancient artifacts has given the archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the glass of an ancient mirror. It's taken him eleven centuries to find the right woman. He's not about to lose her now. Jessi St. James has GOT to get a life. Too many hours studying ancient artifacts has given the archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the glass of an ancient mirror. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six and a half feet of smoldering INSATIABLE alpha male. Heir to the arcane magic of his Druid ancestors, Cian MacKeltar was trapped inside the Dark Glass eleven centuries ago. And when the Dark Glass is stolen, an ancient enemy will stop at nothing to reclaim it. For Jessi, the sex god in the mirror is not only tantalisingly real, he's offering his protection—from exactly what, Jessi doesn't know. And all he wants in exchange is the exquisite pleasure of sharing her bed....

    These books just keep getting better and better! I simply ADORED "Spell of the Highlander" For me, the most important thing while reading a book is to connect with the characters. You can add a storyline, a million storylines that will take your breath away, but if the characters are sh*t (pardon my expression) all the imagination in the world won't do for me. Well, as you'll figure it out, the characters in here were far from sh*t XD In this novel, the story was in second place. It's about Cia These books just keep getting better and better!

Well, as you'll figure it out, the characters in here were far from sh*t XD In this novel, the story was in second place. It's about Cian MacKeltar, the most powerful druid from his line, being trapped in an ancient mirror for more than a thousand years (!!!) and seeking revenge to his jailor. That's basically it lol, Jessi finds the mirror and brings him out, she becomes prey to the ultimate druid bad guy, and they run to Scotland ( ). He is constantly forced to return into the mirror by the magic, so their escape is not so smooth lol. The story was good, although not so intense as some from the previous books, and the part I most loved about it is that I had NO IDEA how it was going to end till the very ending and when it was all explained. I just LOVE that in a book <3 Most of the time the end is pretty predictable, and although I knew there will be a happy end (duh), I didn't know how it will come to pass. Now to the center of the novel - Cian and Jessi. I fell in love with them! They were so lovely, hilarious and adorable, they got me hooked from the start :) Cian, although a fierce warrior, made me laugh all the time! He was unintentionally hilarious, and I loved him for it! He always called Jessi "wench" or "woman", and that first command when he came out of the mirror, ahahahah oh man I couldn't stop laughing XD I have to put it in here loool it's hilarious XD (Cian just came out from the mirror and wants a bit of hanky panky, poor guy, being a thousand years without a woman, and he uses The Voice to command her to do his bidding XDXD) “Cease speaking, wench. You will bring that sweet ass over here and kiss me now.” Jessi gaped, mouth open, midword. Snapped her mouth closed. Opened it again. Her head suddenly itched just beneath the skin, above her metal plate. She rubbed at her scalp. “As if.” She meant to hiss it indignantly, but it came out more of a squeak. Sweet ass? He thought she had a sweet ass? They could form a mutual admiration society of two. “Remove that woolen, woman, and show me your breasts.” Choking on an inhalation, she sputtered for several seconds. Numerous were the men who’d tried to go there—even she knew she had exceptional breasts—but none quite so obviously and without exerting even an ounce of seductive effort. She clamped her hands over them defensively. And his first ride in a car hahahah "Cease ceasing movement so abruptly! Christ, woman, must you catapult forward after each cessation? Are you certain you’ve strapped the mirror securely? We should stop and check it. By Danu, wench, try nudging this beast gently, not kicking it with both heels! A silence, a slew of choked curses, then: Horses! What the bloody hell is wrong with horses? Have they all been slain in battle?" Yup. LOVE him <3 This book had me from the beginning to the end :) And btw, the ending was great, we got to see the MacKeltar brothers again in action <3 and it was quite unpredictable <3 There had been a teary moment near the end but surprisingly, the epilogue was not cry-worthy XD There was that bit with the Queen I did not get at all, maybe it's an intro to the upcoming books, or maybe it's a reference to the Fever series, dunno... All in all, a very bright 5 shining stars for this one <3

    THE MAN IN THE MIRROR Eleven centuries ago, Cian MacKeltar from our favorite and infamous MacKeltal family, was trapped inside the Dark Glass by a dark sorcerer who thought he was his friend. In our century, Cian will discover Jessi. Soon he will realize that Jessi is his: -soul mate -true love -perfect match in heart, mind and body Jessi is the one that Cian will exchange binding vows with and bind their souls together for all eternity. Jessi St. James is a PhD archaeology student with no personal life THE MAN IN THE MIRROR Eleven centuries ago, Cian MacKeltar from our favorite and infamous MacKeltal family, was trapped inside the Dark Glass by a dark sorcerer who thought he was his friend. In our century, Cian will discover Jessi. Soon he will realize that Jessi is his: -soul mate -true love -perfect match in heart, mind and body Jessi is the one that Cian will exchange binding vows with and bind their souls together for all eternity. Jessi St. James is a PhD archaeology student with no personal life until she discovers Cian and his mirror. Firstly Jessi summons Cian out of the mirror. And they she licks Cian. So I suppose he is hers now. Jessi has a metal place to piece her skull back together after a terrible accident at her senior year in high school. She was miserable then, it is a blessing now because the magic does not work on her. Everything happens for a reason, it seems. The two of them will travel from USA to Scotland and Inverness, they will meet the rest of the MacKeltars, they will fall in love and they will defeat Cian’s old enemy. Pure perfection! WARNING - THE FOLLOWING WILL NOT MAKE SENSE IF YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH THE FEVER SERIES: This book felt so much like it is the Fever series prequel… Cian as a dark sorcerer behaves totally like Barrons: • He uses the Voice, the Druid art of compulsion, without hesitation and frequently. • He has tattoos on his body for protection. • He applies wards and spells to secure area and rooms using Dark Magyck. • He is at ease with his dark side and he will not hesitate to go there. Especially for sexual pleasure. Also there are some common elements with the Fae series • The mirror and what is hidden behind it. Mirrors are passages in Fever. • The Dark Book (is it the Sinsar Dubh I wonder?) • The mentioning of other Unseelie and Seelie Hallows/objects/relics/artifacts (the sword, the spear – just waiting for Mac to find them and grab them) Lastly, there is the warning of Aoibheal (the queen of the fae), that the walls between Earth and Faery will fall and the Unseelie Princes will walk on the Earth raping and transforming the women into shells of their previous self. And that the MacKeltars are where they should be TOGETHER and that they need to be prepared. Cian and Dageus apparently will make the best team. Cian seems to know more about what is coming in comparison to the other MacKeltars, but he will keep his silence. “What is it, Cian? Is aught amiss? Do you see something, kingsman?” “Nay. Tis nothing, Drustan. Nothing at all.”

    I love KMM's Highlander series - I haven't read the 1st 2 books yet but the other ones were all 5-star reads to me - so I was really anxious to see if this latest installment would live up to my high expectations. Well, I'm glad to say it was another winner. :) On a Friday night, close to midnight, Jessica St. James, an overworked and exhausted Archeology graduate student at the University of Chicago, is asked by her advisor, who's just suffered a car accident, to go to his office and receive a p I love KMM's Highlander series - I haven't read the 1st 2 books yet but the other ones were all 5-star reads to me - so I was really anxious to see if this latest installment would live up to my high expectations. Well, I'm glad to say it was another winner. :) On a Friday night, close to midnight, Jessica St. James, an overworked and exhausted Archeology graduate student at the University of Chicago, is asked by her advisor, who's just suffered a car accident, to go to his office and receive a package for him. She wonders what kind of package gets delivered at such unusual hour, but it's not like she has a life and she can't really refuse her advisor's request. The strange delivery turns out to be the Dark Glass, an ancient mirror with a 9th-century hot Highlander Druid locked inside, and Jessi's life takes a turn for the worse... or for the better? Cian MacKeltar, the Highlander hottie from the past, is the most powerful Keltar Druid ever born, but he was betrayed by Lucan Trevayne, a "fellow" Dark Sorcerer, 1,133 years ago and has been imprisoned in the Dark Glass since then. The powerful artifact is the source of Lucan's immortality, so he's more than annoyed when it's stolen from him - by a mere thief! - and he'll stop at nothing to get it back. Too bad Jessi is in the middle of the battle between Cian and Lucan now... Cian needs Jessi's help in order to break the spell that keeps him imprisoned inside the Dark Glass and, after the initial shock - it isn't everyday that you find a hunk in a mirror and, worse, an assassin after you -, she realizes she needs him to keep Lucan's assassins from killing her. The trick is, Cian can be summoned out of the Dark Glass for short periods of time only, so he has to make the best use of his free time if he wants to play his revenge against Lucan and seduce Jessi at the same time. The outcome of his battle against the Dark Sorcerer is uncertain, but there's no doubt in Cian's mind that Jessi is his woman and, soon enough, there's no doubt in her mind either. But what will happen after the spell is broken? Will Cian be able to survive outside the Dark Glass? Okay, I'm going to say it: I liked Cian, but I didn't love him. Don't get me wrong, he was hot and yummy, but I thought he was like a "mix" of the previous heroes in the series and, as a result, he paled in comparison with them. Having Dageus and Drustan playing strong secondary roles in this book didn't help Cian's "allure", as I found myself more interested in getting myself reunited with the MacKeltar twins than reading about Cian pacing inside the Dark Glass. As for Jessi, I loved her. She was intelligent, brave and bold. The stunt she pulled at the Edinburgh Airport was a bit farfetched, but the whole ancient-Druid-imprisoned-in-a-mirror thing wasn't exactly ordinary so I went along with it happily. There was a scene near the end when I thought she was going to have a TSTL moment but, thankfully, she retreated before putting herself - and Cian, as a consequence - in danger. Gotta love a smart heroine! The plot was interesting, the action was fast paced, and the love scenes were hot. The solution for Cian's "conumdrum" was kind of obvious, but I wasn't disappointed by it because it made sense and it was consistent with what had happened before in the series. The ending was a bit "strange", though. Instead of writing an epilogue, KMM chose to write a "Dear Reader" letter telling us that what happened to Cian and Jessi after their final confrontation with Lucan. It wasn't how I wanted to see the story end, but it wasn't "bad" enough to ruin the book. All in all, this was another great installment in the beloved Highlander series. I wish KMM was still writing new books in this series but, alas, it looks like she's dropped it in favor of her Fever series - at least, for now. Oh well, it was good while it lasted.

    Updated review: A couple years ago, I discovered a fabulous author(Monica McCarty). When I finished with her books, I asked her who her "go-to" authors were. Monica's answer? Karen Marie Moning. Since my library only had this book by her, this is what I read. Wow, Cian is one hunky medieval male. I immediately returned this book and bought the whole series. This book focuses on Cian MacKeltar, a 9th century druid who is trapped in a mirror..a mirror that is an Unseelie Hallow (a fae created relic Updated review: A couple years ago, I discovered a fabulous author(Monica McCarty). When I finished with her books, I asked her who her "go-to" authors were. Monica's answer? Karen Marie Moning. Since my library only had this book by her, this is what I read. Wow, Cian is one hunky medieval male. I immediately returned this book and bought the whole series. This book focuses on Cian MacKeltar, a 9th century druid who is trapped in a mirror..a mirror that is an Unseelie Hallow (a fae created relic). Jessi is a grad student who accidentally sees Cian (aka the sex god) in the mirror. What she didn't know was that her professor had bought this antique mirror after it was stolen from Lucan during a power outage (that is alluded to in the Fever series), another ancient druid. Well, he wants it back. Lucan sends assassains after anyone who has had any contact with the mirror. Cian decides to help Jessi, so he tells her the spell to release him from the mirror. Problem is, she thinks it was just a dream, because super hot sex-gods don't live in mirors and help random grad students, right? Totally a dream. Unfortunately, if Cian is freed from the mirror, its only temporary. And there's no set time-the mirror is fickle and reclaims him after a few hours, or after a day. It's never consistent. Cian helps her, convinces her he's real and that her life is in danger. So they head off to Scotland, to MacKeltar land, hoping to hide her out in the Highlands. But lo and behold, there are many more MacKeltars than expected! Not only the current line of Christopher and Maggie, but Drustan and Gwen, and Daegus and Chloe!! The way Daegus and Cian meet is hysterical! I loved that scene and I loved the whole gathering of the MacKeltar clan. [anyone who can get this on audio-do so! Phil Gigante doing all the Keltar men in one room? OMG I drooled] They grudgingly help Cian and Jessi defeat the evil dark druid Lucan who had entrapped Cian in the mirror so long ago. But there's a twist-to escape the mirror permanently, will cause his death. How on earth will he do it? Will Daegus surprise us with his (still) dark knowledge from the Drughar? Will he double-cross Jessi and Cian? Gotta read to find out.... And at the very end, we get a brief glimpse of Aivheal the Seelie queen. That is the part that is important to the Fever series. Total foreshadowing for the Fever series...if you don't like romances but like Urban Fantasy, read the Fever series, but add this and The Immortal Highlander to it, almost as prequels.

    8/21: I'm halfway through the book and my patience is thinning. My problems with the book so far (w/o spoilers): 1) I understand Cian, the hero, is Scottish, but after 1,133 years in a mirror, wouldn't he have dropped the Scottish highlands way of saying things for more modern speech? For instance, would he still be saying "doona ken" instead of "do not know" after watching TV and reading books from his mirror for so many years? 2) Cian has so many superpowers that it is hard to keep track of the 8/21: I'm halfway through the book and my patience is thinning.

I get that he's the most powerful Druid in all of time, but seriously. Besides getting out of the damned mirror, is there anything that he can't do? It would be nice if he had some flaws or things that he had to do normally to add a little challenge to the story. Oh, and not to be forgotten, Cian is, of course, hung - as in "worrisomely large". 3) It is petty, but the cover bugs me. First, it is more porno-ish than most romance novels that I've read. I get embarrassed holding the damn thing. Second, the girl on the cover is blond and has long hair... Jessi, the heroine, has black, short, curly hair. 4) Sort of like # 2, it bugs that the bad guy sends these incompetant "assassins" that Cian dispatches in seconds. One gets dispatched after Cian throws a dagger from the mirror and kills them. If Cian can do that, why hasn't he killed his captor, Lucan, that way over the course of the last 1,133 years? Yes, I get that Lucan stands on bespelled ground whenever Cian is allowed out of the mirror, but what about all the other times? 5) I am so unbelievably sick and tired of heroines that are virgins. Especially when the author writes that they are these gorgeous women of, let's say, over 20 that "just haven't found the right guy yet" and act like it is some big, almost shameful secret. Since when is being a virgin a bad thing? Since when is being a virgin a big to-do in today's times? So what, she's selective, what is the big whoop? And, I haven't gotten to an actual sex scene yet, but how much you want to bet that Cian is completely shocked that Jessi is a virgin? *gag*

    There’s something to be said about a book that takes you off to faraway lands, lands where the men are breathtakingly beautiful and oh, so sexy. Spell of the Highlander is one such book. As I was reading, I felt myself getting lost in this world. Cian has been imprisoned for 1,133 years in the Dark Mirror. The mirror is delivered to Chicago where Jessica St-James, an archaeology student accepts the delivery on behalf of her professor. From that point on, Jessica and Cian were hunted by Lucan Tre There’s something to be said about a book that takes you off to faraway lands, lands where the men are breathtakingly beautiful and oh, so sexy.

The mirror is delivered to Chicago where Jessica St-James, an archaeology student accepts the delivery on behalf of her professor. From that point on, Jessica and Cian were hunted by Lucan Trevayne. They end up in Scotland, where they run into Dageus MacKeltar. Spell of the Highlander is the seventh book in the Karen Moning’s Highlander series. It is easily the best book of the series for many reasons. First of all, it is a love story, complete with exquisite sexual tension and very passionate love scenes. It is a story of finding your true soul mate, someone that is on this earth especially for you. The characters are well developed. A lot of thought went into our hero, Cian MacKeltar: “six and a half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male. A towering, muscle ripped, darkly beautiful man, dripping with power.” What’s there not to like? Our heroine, Jessica St. James is also likeable, smart, and resourceful and a perfect match to her highlander. Jessica is also quite spunky, knocking out an airline employee to get to her man. The plot was intense, with our hero and heroine staying a step ahead of the bad guys. I also liked that the MacKeltar twins and their wives also got an appearance in this book. I really enjoyed how Cian saw the 21st century. His perceptions and values added some comical relief. For those of you that have read the Fever series, there is some good foreshadowing and background to that series. If you are waiting for Shadowfever, the Highlander series is a lot of fun to read. There’s always a big, hunky, drop-dead gorgeous Highlander, a wee lass, some travel or time travel, and a little Druid magic. Enjoy!

    Delicious, just delicious. I keep reading this series and each time I finish one I say that same thing – ‘OMG, this was sooo my favourite’ – and yep, you guessed it, I’m saying it again! Because this book has been reviewed by many before me I won’t go into synopsis to deeply. But Ms Moning has created the epitome of dark, broody alpha Highlander who is tragically tormented by his stone prison in which he is entrapped to look out unto the real world through a looking glass. Our Master of Sorcery, Delicious, just delicious. I keep reading this series and each time I finish one I say that same thing – ‘OMG, this was sooo my favourite’ – and yep, you guessed it, I’m saying it again! Because this book has been reviewed by many before me I won’t go into synopsis to deeply. But Ms Moning has created the epitome of dark, broody alpha Highlander who is tragically tormented by his stone prison in which he is entrapped to look out unto the real world through a looking glass. Our Master of Sorcery, Cian. Our heroine is, Jessi. For the first time in a long time, I cannot find anything I don’t like about the lead female role. She is a very likably and an engaging character. As per past female leads, Jessi too is a little history buff. She is currently studying a Master in Archaeology. She has dreams of living a fulfilling life outside of her college education but has seen herself fall into the trap of all work and no play – including letting her lack of love life slide. Thankfully sinfully sexy Cian arrives in time to show her the way to heaven. The pair’s spontaneous sex scenes were full of raw passionate heat that had my toes curling! And I’m thinking that if letting the man’s goods hang loose under a kilt makes the appendage grow larger, then I’m going to be the first to start petitioning for men to go back to the wearing Kilts full time! I was happy to see my sexy twins, Dageus and Druston and the two people I envy most in the world – their wives – Chloe and Gwen, make an appearance. Deageus and Drunstan are great characters to have involved in the stories because they have such a great back history amongst themselves that they manage to be able to save the day for everyone else. I cannot recommend this series enough. I am lucky enough to be doing a buddy read of this series with a great friend, Nissie and I know wholeheartedly that she would agree that this series is packed full of travel, romance, love, danger, time travel, raw heat, sexuality, well hung men, humorous bantering and clever dialogue. It entwines the past with the present flawlessly and I say- 'Kudos to Ms Moning, and I beg of you – please don’t end this series just when I have found it’.

    3.5 stars To be truthful, I found the storyline to be on the same lines as the previous books. You know a heroine, that needs to get her "cherry picked", a hero that takes her back to Scotland to get away from the bad guys. It did pick up for me halfway through the book, with Drustan and Dageus making their entrance in the story, which felt complete and far more entertaining!

    "Excepting with you, Jessica. You, lass, are the exception to everything. I'm not just stuck with you. You fit me here, woman." He thumped his chest with his fist Oh these sexy alpha Highlanders. They can be such arrogant arses when you first meet them but once they decide who their woman is then they turn into big huge possessive, sexy, sweet talking Neanderthals. Oh my gosh and since they are all from the past and have one way or another made it to our century can be quiet hilarious over the "Excepting with you, Jessica. You, lass, are the exception to everything. I'm not just stuck with you. You fit me here, woman." He thumped his chest with his fist Oh these sexy alpha Highlanders.

Oh my gosh and since they are all from the past and have one way or another made it to our century can be quiet hilarious over the simple things in life we pay no attention to but completely throws them and has them saying the absolute funniest things. "These resemble no chicken fingers I've ever seen, lass. And I saw a fair amount of chickens in my day.You must grow fowl considerably larger now. I shudder to ponder the size of their beaks. The reader starts the story with Jessica overdoing herself in school. She barely has time to sleep must less have any kind of life. That's how she meets Cian. Running an errand for her professor late at night. Instantly her life is turned upside down. For starters she meets a man who is living trapped in a mirror but to make matters worse since she has accidently seen that mirror she has people coming to find her to kill her. It takes a little time but Cian convinces her he is her only source of protection. And so the story begins. Thank goodness for the act of Voice Cian can use or right from the start this girl would have had even more trouble for herself. Murdered people, fights with airport employees, strange emails, it's one thing after another. To make matters even more difficult, Jessica nor Cian know each day when he will be sucked back into the mirror, leaving her vulnerable and sometimes on her own to figure out what to do. Thank goodness for relatives who life in Scotland who have traveled to the future. I love that Dagues and Drustan were in this book as well. Since everything impossible has already happened to them and their wifes, they were the perfect help Cian and Jessica needed. Not to mention they had beds, food, showers, saftey and more than one place to get so wrapped up in each other they forgot they had an audience.

I was grabbed really quickly into this book and had a extremely hard time putting it down, especially once I got to the 65% mark. All books in the series has really pulled me in. I love these kilted heros. At the end of this book the author left a note saying that she doesn't plan on leaving this series anytime soon and I hope that means we get plenty more to this series. I just can't get enough.

    Although I know many love the entirety of Moning's Highlander series, I found them to be hit or miss. A frequent reread for me, Spell of the Highlander, the final in the series before the author took the series in a whole other direction, definitely falls in the "hit" category. The story essentially begins when our heroine accepts a delivery for an unusual artifact while at work. Assisting a professor while working toward her PhD, Jessi St. James's curiosity gets the best of her- especially after Although I know many love the entirety of Moning's Highlander series, I found them to be hit or miss. A frequent reread for me, Spell of the Highlander, the final in the series before the author took the series in a whole other direction, definitely falls in the "hit" category. The story essentially begins when our heroine accepts a delivery for an unusual artifact while at work. Assisting a professor while working toward her PhD, Jessi St. James's curiosity gets the best of her- especially after the deliveryman forces her to help him uncrate the item before he leaves-visual verification needed. The artifact, a mirror with ancient runes inscribed around it, cannot be as old as it seems- mirrors with that much clarity just weren't around until the last century or so. But when a mysterious man enters the room demanding the mirror and threatening her life, Jessi finds herself defending it. Suddenly, a voice is heard demanding she release a man who happens to be trapped inside the mirror- a man held there for a very, very long time. Certain she's dreaming, she plays along and speaks the words that will release one Cian MacKeltar from the dark magic that holds him imprisoned within the mirror. (Yes, that would be the 9th century ancestor of the infamous Mackeltar clan who populate the rest of Moning's highlander series!) He, of course, rescues her from the sinister character threatening her life, but not before Jessi makes her attraction to the sexy, ancient highlander very obvious- it's a dream after all, why not taste the handsomest, most masculine man she had ever laid eyes upon? All too soon, she realizes he is indeed not a figment of her imagination and that her life is in very real danger. Cian convinces her she must return him- and the mirror- to his homeland in Scotland so he can prepare properly for the final battle that will have to take place between he and the man who imprisoned him. While there, they meet up with Drustan & Daegus (Kiss of the Highlander & The Dark Highlander) and their wives, and convince his descendants to assist them on their quest to release Cian from his curse. Of course Jessi & Cian fall in love in the process, a love Jessi thought would keep him by her side, but Jessi has no idea how far Cian will go to be set free- until she sees him about to give up his life. Seductive and intensely romantic this story goes right to the heart. I found it to be the most romantic of the series- and the most sensual. I highly recommend it, even as a standalone, because once you've turned the last page, you'll find it's not enough and you'll want to go back and read about the rest of the noble, strong MacKeltar's Moning has created and just who are these fae wreaking havoc on their lives! As I've mentioned, I re-read this one quite often, though I have no idea why I've never reviewed it before. If you like enticing romance mixed with time travel magic- you can't go wrong with Moning's Highlander series.

    I just had to give this a 5* because Drustan & Daegus & their wives played such big roles in this story. And I really liked the tale that slowly unfolds as to the how and why of Cian getting bespelled into the mirror. I also liked that Cian remained basically moral even after he'd done some dabbling in the Black Arts, AND after being held prisoner for 1,133 years. For some reason, I focused on how that number kept getting repeated at odd times in the story, almost like that would become I just had to give this a 5* because Drustan & Daegus & their wives played such big roles in this story.

I liked Jessi's character from the beginning - she was definitely creative in problem-solving whenever Cian got suddenly whisked back into the mirror! But the repeated episodes of her turning into a boneless puddle immediately and often over just the sight or thought of Cian was just a little over-the-top. We got the idea already!!

    Good book but didn't like it near as much as Kiss of the Highlander, The Dark Highlander, or The Immortal Highlander (which is my favorite). I know many readers of this series loved the relationship between the H/h and felt it the most romantic of the series. Personally, I had a hard time feeling the connection between the H/h in this book, and the plot and characters felt a little bland. That being said, Spell of the Highlander is a good book and worth the read.

Damn, I dont even have any examples since I didnt even have the presence of mind to make notes. I just wanted it to get over. Ugh, should've stopped with the previous book, The Immortal Highlander. That wasnt any good, but atleast it wasnt complete shit.

    You would think this series would have to be running out of Highlanders to marry, but they just keep coming. Now we learn of Cian from the 9th century who messed with forces he shouldn't have and was tricked into a magic mirror where he was used to keep a very bad sorcerer immortal. I am glad he wasn't too descriptive about all the bad things he had seen in his time. I like the idea that fate was involved in the theft of the mirror even though that isn't what occured.

Someone is pulling the strings. Cian meets his mate, Jessica, and saves her from assassins, which is amazing since he never knows when he will be sucked back into the mirror. Jessica acts like most people would. She thinks she is going nuts. Can't blame her but she is pretty stubborn which makes Cian fall all the harder for her. They are good for each other and I loved all their arguing and sexual tension.

    Apparently I have a reading sickness that can only be assuaged by reading a series of books about time traveling highlanders. They truly are ridiculous... And a great deal of fun to read with a good dose of steam thrown in for good measure. Better yet, you don't have to read them in any sort of order to make sense of them, so feel free to read which ever ones are available at the local library.

Having said that, this installment marks the end of the series and having read Moning's fever series, you can certainly see how she attempted to set the stage for The inevitable crossover. Thus far, dark highlander is still reigning supreme, but he could be dethroned by Daegus. Stay tuned to see if my leather loving highlander loses his crown.

    Cian and Jessica's story is an epic one. Murder, mayhem, black magyck, passion, and Scotland all wrapped up in one great story. Cian is trapped in a dark mirror and hes been for over 1100 years, and Jessi falls in love with him anyway. We get to see Dageus and Drustan again . I love the MacKelters'. Cian gives up his long time vengence to save his mate/wife, very romantic. Great read and great series!!

    I have to admit, before starting this book, I was what is officially known as a “highlander virgin”. My days I spent watching the TV show, Highlander (aptly put, don’t you think?) doesn’t come close to this!! This book had me humming and then full on singing the song to the highlander series. “I am immortal! I have inside me blood of Kings *aaahhhh* I have no rivals…. La la la la la…send me to the future of the world!!” I had dreams of William Wallace aka Brave Heart, riding into his village on I have to admit, before starting this book, I was what is officially known as a “highlander virgin”.

I even started using words like “bairns” and “lass” a total mind trip  It’s the first time reading the highlander series, and although I’ve read the book out of sync, I plan to get right back on that Highlander horse and start at the beginning. Jessica St James, a socially inept student, studying archaeology, lectures classes, and has no life to speak of. Meets Druid Cian Keltar from the highlands of Scotland. I loved the characters so much; Jessi is one of those people to which strange things always happen to. Exceptionally funny and just an all round good heroine. Cian, well… Cian is a 6’5” sexy powerful Druid / evil sorcerer, with a devilish smile which can make a girl’s toes curl. Only problem is, he’s trapped in an unseely mirror. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the banter between Cian and Jessica, see, Cian… for all his gorgeousness had one flaw…. He’s extremely domineering, to a fault really. And Jessica, Jess just doesn’t roll that way. I loved the trip (running away form the baddies) they took, and how Cian laughs when Jess does something unintentionally funny. And when they reached Scotland, and stumbled across the other Keltars in the clan, it was complete testosterone overload. Though I loved the characters, I think I would have appreciated them more if I read the previous books. Also, I would have wanted to know more about Scotland, and Cian’s clan, and the way the druids lived… since I didn’t have a mental background to picture events taking place against. Also, I didn’t want the author to skip the magyck scenes…. *sigh* But all in all, a very entertaining read.

    Cian MacKeltar was trapped inside a cursed fae mirror eleven centuries ago but the blackout at the end of The Dark Highlander happens and the mirror is stolen and sold on the black market. That's how the mirror ends up in Jessica St. James's life. I have to be honest, this was not my favorite book in the series, but not my least favorite either. I had more of a meh reaction to it. Jessi's character seemed like a rehash/mashup of several of the MCs from earlier in this series.

Jessi's character seemed like a rehash/mashup of several of the MCs from earlier in this series. And Cian manages to be my least favorite Mac Kelter, which considering how minor of a role Christoper plays in this series and the fever series is kind of amazing. Cian has more druidy power than even Daegus so he is kind of a scary imposing guy. He is a Mac Kelter so of course he is gorgeous and cocky, but I just didn't like him as much. He was almost as bad as Daegus on the inappropriate actions chart, but I didn't find him nearly as interesting as Daegus to make up for it. The first chance he gets he tries to use "Voice" on Jessi to get her to take off her clothes. WHAT. THE. HELL. Barrons would NOT approve. Then he literally tosses her over his shoulder and carries her off. Jessi is not exactly TSTL, but at one point in the book all I could think about was Totally harsh, I know, but seriously, I was questioning a lot of her decisions. The best part of this book... is actually the villain, Lucan. He is by far the creepiest bad guy in the whole series. KMM does a fantastic job of making me uncomfortable when reading about him in a skin crawly oh-my-god-I-wouldn't-want-him-to-touch-me kind of way. There is an event at the end of this one that is totally spoilery for this book but kind of a fun tip of the hat to what was about to happen in the Fever series, not a major spoiler but be sure you want to click this (view spoiler)[At the end of this book Queen Aoibheal admits to manipulating many of the events in the earlier books in this series to make sure that the most powerful Mac Kelter druids will all be living at this specific present time because she is going to need their help to survive an event not far into the future.

She has created phenomenal worlds and characters through her brilliant imagination.

    Such a great, awesome book! Loved reading about this couple! And that ending, that the Seelie Queen was manipulating things so that 5 druids would be together, and that she has 3 now, and the she was thinking it, makes me think that the next book is going to bring another one or two there! And it mentions the events of the later books in the Fever series! So awesome!

    Jessica ❁ ➳ Silverbow ➳ ❁ Rabid Reads-no-more

    Ugh. The whole time I was reading this, I was fully conscious that it was a lesser version of its predecessors. I didn't much care for Cian or Jessica, the now token presence of the other MacKelters felt trite, and Lucan was damn creepy. I guess now I know why it took me so long to read the Fever series after I finished this one.

    Me encantan los Highlanders de Karen, los leí hace muchos años y ahora los imagino a todos como Jason Momoa, así que me gustan instantáneamente pensando en él. Es un poco más flojo que los demás libros, porque hay demasiada historia y poca interacción entre los personajes. Pero no puedo quejarme, Jessica es una protagonista fuerte, sin tantos reveses ni caprichos y me hacía falta leer una heroína así después de Summer (Salvaje).
