    The Immortal Highlander was another 5+ instalment from the Highlander series :) Karen Marie Moning just keeps getting better and better with every book :) I've read the first one and didn't like it much, but in a way I'm glad because Adam Black first appeared in that one :) Although, I have to say, he was pretty bad in the beginning, I would never have thought he'd get his own book, he was like the bad guy :O But boy am I glad he did <3 In the previous book Adam sacrifices a part of his life fo The Immortal Highlander was another 5+ instalment from the Highlander series :) Karen Marie Moning just keeps getting better and better with every book :) I've read the first one and didn't like it much, but in a way I'm glad because Adam Black first appeared in that one :) Although, I have to say, he was pretty bad in the beginning, I would never have thought he'd get his own book, he was like the bad guy :O But boy am I glad he did <3 In the previous book Adam sacrifices a part of his life force to save Dageus's life, and for that he is punished by his queen. She sent him to the human world, turned him into a human, and on top of that, he became invisible to everyone. Poor guy. Gabrielle is a decendant of people who are able to see the Faery, and she lives in constant fear of being discovered. One day she stumbles upon Adam, and she's unable to resist his good looks (it's actually seriously fan-fucking-tastic, mesmerising, panties-melting, gorgeus, seductive, perfect looks) and he begins stalking her as she is the only one that can see him. Adam and Gabby were really great! He is pretty used to his awsomeness, he actually expects ever woman to fall at his feet because he knows he is irresistible. That, of course, doesn't happen with Gabrielle (oh yeah you go girl!). The first time they meet she runs away, than she kicks him in the head XD That was funny hahah, and Adam can't believe she's not falling for him. So he, of course again, decides to seduce her XD They had their happy moments, but i'm kinda upset the first sex took so long to happen :PPP But oh well XD Drustan and Dageus appeared in this one, oh how I loved that part <3 <3 And one of the best scenes is when they see Adam hahahahahah that was great :) The ending - wow the ending was just perfect! One of the best epilogues ever, I cried like a baby It was just beautiful, what Adam did and how it all turned out Considering they all get more perfect, more sexual and more seductive with each book, I'm afraid to continue reading lol, this will give me a complex XDXD

    Damn, it's good to be Adam Black - sorry, I couldn't resist, LOL - but I bet it's better to be Adam Black's lover! Adam is one of those heroes you just love to hate - or hate to love, either way works for me. He was selfish, arrogant, manipulative and didn't have any qualms about using anyone and anything to his own advantage. He was also as handome and sexy as one can be, which only helped him to get what he wanted. BUT there was something beneath all that, something that shouldn't be there cons Damn, it's good to be Adam Black - sorry, I couldn't resist, LOL - but I bet it's better to be Adam Black's lover!

He was also as handome and sexy as one can be, which only helped him to get what he wanted. BUT there was something beneath all that, something that shouldn't be there considering he was basically a soulless and unfeeling Fae. Had it always been there? I really didn't see it in the previous book in the series, and I think KMM has done a great job making me believe in Adam's "change of heart" - figuratively speaking, since Faes don't have hearts. Gabby was funny and likeable, but not really remarkable. I think the "problem" was, Adam stole the show and she didn't have enough "spark" to stand on her own. Bottom line, she wasn't as interesting as Lisa, Gwen and Chloe, the heroines in the previous books. BTW, Gwen, Chloe and their respective MacKeltar husbands - sighs! - make more than an simple appearance and play important roles in The Immortal Highlander. I have to say, their reactions when they see Adam "in the flesh" for the first time was priceless, LOL. I had expected to see Circenn too - after all, he was Adam's son - but he was a no-show. Oh well, we can't always have it all, right? Once again, KMM told a story that kept me captivated and entertained. The love scenes were hot - not hard to imagine, since Adam oozed sex appeal - and there was always something happening to keep me turning the pages anxiously. Aoibheal's revelation after she restored Adam's immortality was unexpected and I had a hard time buying it. I really didn't see how he could have been fooled like that. Anyway, that wasn't enough to ruin the story for me. This book was nicely tied to the previous ones in the series - I particularly liked how Adam made everything "right" for Circenn and Lisa, the H/h in The Highlander's Touch -, so this is one series that definitely must be read in order.

Once again a great installment in a wonderful humorous, romantic hot, very well-written series. ********************************************* Present day in U.S. The immortal Prince Faery Adam Black is punished by his, right now angry, mighty queen. The evil penalty is that he for a time is an invisible mortal man. He travels from Scotland to U.S where he by a coincidence meets the law student Gabrielle O'Callaghan. Gabrielle is cursed with the ability to see both worlds, Mortal and Faery, and Adam needs her. “For the record, Irish,” he informed her tightly, just in case she got the wrong idea, “I kneel to no one.” . . . . . Amusing, romantic, steamy and just great This was the third for me in this "time-travel" series (loved part #4 ★★★★★ and #5 ★★★★☆). It seems to be one book a year for me but it's always good to be back in this wonderful Highlander land again. This über sexy caveman hero, Adam Black, turned out to be amazing fun to know already in the first chapter. He "made" this story, as these male highlanders always are the yummy icing on the cake in this amusing Karen Marie Moning world. ~ Precisely nothing to complain about, just marvelous enjoying. The narrator did it well too. I like his voice a lot (for the male characters anyway). ~ It will be more books / audiobooks in this series and I'll not wait another year. ********************************************* I LIKE - men like Adam... **drool**

    So, I was trying to ease my Fever withdrawal pains by reading one of Moning's Highlander romances. Pretty much had to drop it after 15 minutes of listening to it. I should have known it wouldn't work for me after hearing this, right at the beginning: Adam Black: Tuatha De Danaan, a rogue even among his own kind. His favored glamour is that of an intensely sexual Highland blacksmith with a powerful rippling body, golden skin, long black hair, mesmerizing eyes. Highly intelligent, lethally seductive So, I was trying to ease my Fever withdrawal pains by reading one of Moning's Highlander romances.

Just couldn't take this seriously. Can you blame me? Goodness, I miss Jericho! P.S. Men should not narrate romance audiobooks IMO. It's creepy.

Adam Black *dreamy sigh* is an immortal dark Fae prince with an abundance of mischievousness, arrogance, dangerous unpredictability, and a devilish insatiable sexuality. He's the ultimate seducer. The story begins with Adam being punished by the Faery Queen (who adores him, of course) for his repeated interference with his "toy" humans. She strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible to all around him. Such a plight and pity for our poor irresistible Adam. Enter law student Gabrielle "Gabby" O’Callaghan. Gabby, a Sidhe-seer, has the ability to see both worlds; mortal and faery. From the moment she lays eyes on Adam, she knows he could be her undoing, which is very dangerous for her, as the Tuatha De, which Adam is a member, have eradicated all Sidhe-seers from the earth. Thus begins a long and dangerous seduction that will ultimately changes both their lives forever. Regardless of how how hard she tries, Gabby can't seem to avoid Adam, he everywhere. Invisible to all but her, he pampers and treats her in way she's not accustom and relentlessly temps her with the promise of erotic pleasure. Pretty temping for a lonely virgin, I'd say. Unfortunately, danger intrudes on this sensual pursuit and Adam’s quest to regain his immortality immerses them into the deadly politics of the Tuatha De. Adam is by far my favorite character of the series. I could tell KMM had a blast writing him. In fact, Adam kinda steals the show, so to speak, almost to the detriment of the other characters. As much as I love Gabby and feel she's a strong and wonderful heroine, she does pale and become somewhat overshadowed by Adam's bigger than life character. The Immortal Highlander is a fast paced read, that not only provides laugh out loud moment but also is an extremely sensual and erotic read. This is a book I will read again and again and again.

    Adam Black has piqued my curiosity in the previous Highlander books: A larger than life Fae, a Tuatha De, arrogant, sparkly beautiful, seductive, unpredictable, sexual, a player, Queen’s consort. A manipulative, totally dark in soul and his thinking male. He loves playing with the humans’ lives, plotting and pretending being God. Gabrielle "Gabby" O’Callaghan is a Sidhe-seer and she has the ability to see both worlds; mortal and faery (once again I wish I had read this series before Fever...). Gab Adam Black has piqued my curiosity in the previous Highlander books: A larger than life Fae, a Tuatha De, arrogant, sparkly beautiful, seductive, unpredictable, sexual, a player, Queen’s consort. A manipulative, totally dark in soul and his thinking male. He loves playing with the humans’ lives, plotting and pretending being God. Gabrielle "Gabby" O’Callaghan is a Sidhe-seer and she has the ability to see both worlds; mortal and faery (once again I wish I had read this series before Fever...). Gabby is trying very hard to live a normal life. She is a law student working for a law company that she hates. She also pretends that she does not see fairies. This is something that her grandmother taught her…because fairies are manipulative, soulless, and incapable of feeling anything. They are bad bad beings. It does not matter that Gabby since she was a kid loved them and was fantasizing that a fae prince would come and sweep her off her feet. Her grandmother was strict “Avoid them with any cost. When they find out about you, RUN!” And then Gabby meets the worst of them all. Adam’s life collides with her life, when she lifts her eyes and sees him and her glance stays there. She does not pretend that she does not see him or that he is transparent and she is looking something behind him. She cannot take her eyes from him. And then she RUNS. And he RUNS after her. Of course she will be caught LOL Trying to survive a terrible curse, Adam will use Gabby. They will travel from USA to Scotland, attempting to avoid other fairies and Hunters and not be killed in the process. Our favorite highlanders and druids Drustan and Dageus will help. In the end Adam has to make decisions. How far can he go? How many things he can sacrifice for Gabby? How can he fall in love, when he is not supposed to feel anything. This is by far my favorite book in the series. Adam is definitely my favorite character.

She needs a man like Adam in her life; even though he and the possibility of a relationship with him go against everything she’s been taught. The two of them can’t deny the overwhelming desire they have for one another and as they journey together to bring Adam back to his world, they start to fall in love. This book was fabulous. It was funny, passionate, heartbreaking, heartwarming and loaded with testosterone!! WOW!!! The MacKeltars and Adam had my heart a flutter and I was quivering and quaking! The sisterhood that develops between Gabby, Gwen and Chloe was lovely. Although the books that I’ve read in this series followed somewhat of a formula, the characters and the storyline is what sets them apart. Each one leaves you with a satisfying ending, BUT this one nearly brought me to my knees!! My heart pounded, I was breathless and teary-eyed when I read this beautiful, emotional ending and epilogue, and then went back and read it again and again!! I can’t recommend this book, and the two that came before, enough. Once again I thank my lovely friend Kristen for showing me the way to these books that now sit proudly on my favorites shelf!! This could be Adam and Gabby’s song: Crashed by Daughtry http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5uArj... From your face, your eyes are burning into me You saved me, you gave me Just what I need ohh, just what I need And then I crashed into you and I went up in flames Could've been the death of me But then you breathed your breath in me Then I crashed into you like a runaway train You will consume me But, I can't walk away

"....The Tutha De do not speak of Tuatha De matters to"- he gave her an icy sneer - "mere mortals." "Well, mister-mere-mortal-yourself," she bristled right back at him, "maybe you'd better get used to it, because whether or not you like it, you need at least one of us 'mere mortals' to help you become a pompous-asshole-fairy-thing again." 3. "Possession is nine-tenths of the law, Gabrielle. Seeing as how your bottom is currently in my hands, not yours, I believe that makes it mine."

Oh and did I mention frigging hot to trot with a shlong the size of King Kong!?!?!?!? Oh *sighs dreamily* Adam Black, sex is not the answer. Sex is the question. Yes is my answer – YES! I can only imagine that if I ever got my hands onto your fairy body the sex would be so good that even the neighbours would need to have a cigarette. The other day upon the stair, I saw a man who wasn’t there. He wasn’t there again today; how I wish he’d go away! - Gabrielle O’Callaghan, on Adam Black. I enjoyed Gabrielle’s character. I do tend to get a bit pissy at female characters with their constant self analysis about crap that is totally irrelevant. Not that Gabrielle wasn’t completely without a little self deprecation; it was just that it wasn’t to the extent where I felt like clobbering her one over the head with a mallet. She was intelligent – studying to be a lawyer in fact. And she withstood Adams sexy charms longer than any sane woman would have. I bow to her. So needless to say, I loved this book. This of course is the story of Adam Black and Gabrielle O’Callaghan and is easily the best I have read so far in this series. I found there was a lot of laugh out loud moments is the book. The plot was enthralling and fast paced. Adam *sigh* is being punished by his Queen for restoring the life of Daegus Mackelter and has forced him into being human and invisible to everyone around him. That is, everyone except Gabby. Gabrielle is a sidhe-seer (someone who can see the Fae). When Adam realized that she can see him, he sets out ruthlessly to get Gabrielle to help him set his life back to rights. Gabrielle has grown up thinking that all fairies are evil so is very wary about helping Adam, but learns quickly along the way that you should never take anything at face value. Of course there are the usual baddies who are set out to release Hunters into the human world and kill Adam Black. The romance between Adam and Gabrielle was palpable. They have grant banter and such a great attraction toward one another. Gabrielle withstood Adams charms for an awfully long time and just when you think something was finally going to happen – they get ....interrupted. KMM made these two characters work for each other, with Adam perpetually trying to seduce Gabrielle. Faults? I am a little over the all the mid twenty year old virgins. Can we not have just one girl in the series that already had her ‘maidenhead’ taken by say, I don’t know....the jerk down the road? And one more tiny thing, long hair down to ones waist, would be so terribly disgusting on a man. Can you imagine the knots? Bleh... Summary – The Immortal Highlander was a truly wonderful read. I haven’t laughed out loud in a book like this for a long time. I recommend this to anyone hasn’t read it.

    I can't believe that I had never read a KMM book before I started this series....I must have been on another planet ;) This was another fantastic addition to the Highlander series. I did drool and swoon over Adam but not quite as much as I did with Drustan & Dageus. I loved meeting up with Drustan & Gwen and Degeus & Chloe again and see how they are getting on.

I hope we see more of them all in the next installments.

Adam is paying the price for challenging the Queen in front of the court, by being made "human" (with all the human cravings and needs) and placed in féth fíada, therefore, invisible to human eye. The fairies are tricky and they always think through all loop-holes, but Queen Aoibheal did count on one variable... a beautiful Sidhe-seer who can see him. Gabrielle could see fairies since she was little, which is a dangerous thing. Sidhe-seers are hunted and kidnapped by fairies. She was to ignore and pretend like she doesn't see them as her only protection. But when Gabrielle meets Adam... oooh wheee!!! All those years of training and self preservation fly out of the window (and I can't even blame her... come on IT'S ADAM!) Adam bribes coerces Gabrielle into helping him seek counsel with the Queen to acquire her pardon and get his immortality back. However, things don't go according to plan as a long time rival strikes to destroy Adam at his weakest. OK, Officially the darkest and trickiest of Fae is the hottest & sweetest man! I felt so bad for him at times because I wanted to laugh at him. As a cocky (no intentional pun intended)Fae who had all the women falling over him, Gabby is frigging hilarious resisting him, especially when she meets him 2nd time around by (view spoiler)[ busting his lip, head-butting him and kneeing his junk. (hide spoiler)] Ouch, but so hilarious! There are so many elements here that give a spin-off of Fever Series, that it makes me wish I read this first, but oh well! We get to see more of the expending MacKeltar clan! Quote that made me want to Hug KMM She understood now why her friend Elizabeth, with her near-genius, analytical mind gave wide berth to murder mysteries, psychological thrillers, and horror stories, and read only romance novels . Because, by God, when a woman picked up one of those steamy books, she had a firm guarantee that there would be a Happily-Ever-After. You aren't falling for me, are you, Irish?

The question you need to ask yourself is, will you be able to live with yourself if you don't let yourself have a happy-now, and end up having had nothing at all? You were firing questions at me today, trying to get inside my head. You asked if I believed in God. I told you of course I do- I've always had a strong sense of self. Your house is quiet now, you're sleeping upstairs and I'm alone with this blasted, idiotic book that purports to tally the sum of my life, and fact is, maybe I do. But maybe, ka-lyrra, your God doesn't believe in me. I don't think there was a single thing about this book that I didn't love. It was mesmerizing, sexy, funny, charming, breathtaking, and utterly fantastic! It kept me enthralled the entire time I was reading it. I was never bored. I loved all the characters, their quick wit and banter; and I can safely say this book is one of my favorite paranormal romance novels I've ever read. My Immortal Highlander is the story of Gabrielle She's a Sidhe-Seer , or one who can see Fae. One who is taught to revile them. To never let one get close to her for they are soulless seducers who will kill you, and do it with a smile on their heartless faces. She's feisty, full of passion, Adam's Irish Ka-Lyrra, and just trying to fit into a world that she's never quite fit into. She's been living her life trying to find that special guy to live it out with..but she has a secret. Even though she's supposed to be terrified of the Fae, she's secretly always dreamed of one day finding her very own Fae Prince, one whose icy soul she can thaw. One only she can bring into the light. "How many times had she dreamed of doing that? Copping one tiny forbidden fairy-feel. Finally finding out if all that golden fairy skin really felt as velvety as it looked?" Then she meets Adam Black “Damn, it's good to be me." -Adam Black A Fae Prince who's been punished by his queen and sent to live as a human for however long she deems fit. His legend is of an icy, heartless monster who should be avoided at all costs. With his long dark hair, dark eyes, and bands of gold around his wrists and neck, he's every bit the royal Prince that Gabrielle has always dreamed of. It only he wasn't reported to be an evil seducer. Tuatha Dé Danaan. a rogue even among his own kind His favored glamour is that of an intensely sexual Highland blacksmith with a powerful rippling body, golden skin, long black hair, and dark, mesmerizing eyes Highly intelligent, lethally seductive. Alleged to have nearly broken The Compact on not one. but two occasions. He is, by far. the most dangerous and unpredictable of his race. WARNING: EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION IF SIGHTED. AVOID CONTACT AT ALL COST. I loved reading their journey and the beautiful story of how they fell in love. We have a man who maybe is more than he seems, and a woman who is slowly thawing the ice around his non existent soul. How do you make someone love you if they don't even have a soul? A heart? For such a sexy story, I was very surprised on the beauty of their love. She understood now why her friend Elizabeth, with her near-genius, analytical mind gave wide berth to murder mysteries, psychological thrillers, and horror stories, and read only romance novels. Because, by God, when a woman picked up one of those steamy books, she had a firm guarantee that there would be a Happily-Ever-After. That though the world outside those covers could bring such sorrow and disappointment and loneliness, between those covers, the world was a splendid place to be. This book has some moments of extreme humor as well. We get to see some of the characters from previous books make brief appearances throughout the novel. “Tell them, Gabrielle,” Adam urged impatiently. Blinking, Gabby nodded. “I have one of the, er… fairies here with me –” “Tuatha Dé,” Adam corrected irritably. “You’re bloody well making me sound like Tinkerbell.” My advice to anyone who isn't interested in Paranormal Romances is to give this one a shot anyways. It may not be your topic of choice but I loved the love story so much I don't know how anyone else couldn't. Give a shot. “Ah, ka-lyrra, I look at you and you make me want to live a man's life with you. To wake with you and sleep with you, argue with you and make love with you, to get a silly human job and take walks in the park and live so tiny beneath such a vast sky. But I will never stay with another human woman and watch her die. Never." -Adam ***I would recommend this novel to others***

    I am getting tired of giving a rating in between stars - I am giving this one a 2.5 stars, because similar to the Dark Highlander (this book's predecessor in the series), I thought it was more than okay but I didn't feel that I "liked" it all that much. I was very happy that Adam Black finally got a story of his own. I thought Gabrielle (or Gabby for short) was well-matched for him. In this book, we even got to see more of Drustan & Gwen, Dageus & Chloe (both couples from previous two nov I am getting tired of giving a rating in between stars - I am giving this one a 2.5 stars, because similar to the Dark Highlander (this book's predecessor in the series), I thought it was more than okay but I didn't feel that I "liked" it all that much. I was very happy that Adam Black finally got a story of his own. I thought Gabrielle (or Gabby for short) was well-matched for him. In this book, we even got to see more of Drustan & Gwen, Dageus & Chloe (both couples from previous two novels in the series) and even Darroc, one of the main villains from the author's Fever series. Overall, the story in itself was actually quite good - it had its fair share of romantic and suspense elements. However, it still failed to interest me. I've read KMM's Fever series first, before venturing into the Highlander series. I'm a big fan of the Fever series, but I can't say as much about the Highlander series. After having read 6 of the KMM Highlander novels, I've gotten tired of the way the stories were plotted and portrayed. Each book, although focused on a different couple as the main characters, followed a similarly predictable structure, or formula, which can be summarized as follows: (1) A sensual, beautiful, good-hearted, courageous woman (our female protagonist) meets a hunky, gorgeous, seductive, sexy, irristible man (our to-die-for-and-to-drool-over-for male lead). Sometimes their meeting would be a result of some time-travel plan or accident, but essentially you'd have a guy who doesn't really belong in the 21st century meet a modern-day woman. (2) Woman and hunky guy feel instant attraction towards each other and continue to feel horny around each other throughout the entire book. (3) Lady and man go through a series of flirting, teasing, seduction etc., while in the middle of some sort of trouble, mystery, or adventure. This is essentially the "mating dance" between the two lead characters. Eventually they cannot resist the urge and mutual attraction, and fall into bed together. They always have mind-blowing sex, and the lead hunk of the story always has skills that no man of our current-day standards would ever hope to match, let alone surpass. Oh, let's not forget that the lead woman (in the majority of the Highlander novels) is a virgin so her first time is well-treasured and appreciated by the man. (4) Lady and the said seductive man would then ensue in some sort of battle or final showdown with the villain(s) of the novel, meanwhile have more sex in between whenever and wherever possible. (5) Battle with the bad guys is finally won but somehow, someway the couple gets separated. The lady becomes immensely distraught with the loss of her love and goes into a state of denial, shock, deep despair. (6) Finally our fictional, unforgettable hunk appears again and reunites with his mate. They reconcile, have more sex, and live happily ever after. Oh, and they usually end up having babies, or plan to have babies. So, this just about sums up my impression of the Highlander series so far. I think you can apply the above formula to any of the first six books and you'd find that I'm really not that far off the mark. Really, KMM's writing style isn't bad. In fact, she has this way of writing that perfectly describes any woman's fantasy dream guy. Her romantic portrayal between the lead characters is quite well written and believable. Sometimes I can't help but sigh over the hunks in the novels. If I were to ready any one of the six books as a standalone (i.e. read only one and none of the others), each would actually earn at least a 3-star, may be even 4-star, rating in my funny accounting way. Unfortunately, I read one after another, and by the time I reached #6, I just got tired of seeing the same things again and again. Having said this though, I will still attempt to read book #7 of the series. After all, I've already invested so much time, I might just as well complete the journey, right? I just hope that I'll encounter something surprisingly pleasant and NEW in the next installment.

    Stripped from his Fae powers and forced to live in the human world, Adam Black has never felt so vulnerable in his entire existence. With only the ability to sift in short distances and invisible to all humans and fae alike, his punishment from Aoibheal is one of pure torture. It isn’t until he realizes that only one other person can see him that he has some hope to become the immortal once again. Gabrielle O’Callaghan is a woman who possesses a rare ability to see both realms: mortal and Faery. Stripped from his Fae powers and forced to live in the human world, Adam Black has never felt so vulnerable in his entire existence. With only the ability to sift in short distances and invisible to all humans and fae alike, his punishment from Aoibheal is one of pure torture. It isn’t until he realizes that only one other person can see him that he has some hope to become the immortal once again. Gabrielle O’Callaghan is a woman who possesses a rare ability to see both realms: mortal and Faery. Plagued with this burden her entire life, Gabby finds herself hating the Fae and even more, hating her undeniable attraction for them. When Adam seeks Gabby out to ask her to help him find his son Circenn in order to bring him back to face Aoibheal, sparks fly and the chemistry sizzles as Gabby tries to resist Adam’s charms. The Immortal Highlander is a fascinating, well-written story that questions if a Fae prince without a soul can give up his entire heart for a mere mortal. Moning crafts amazingly well-paced stories in this series, but I have to say that the Immortal Highlander may be my favourite of the bunch. Though Adam Black can be seen as the bad guy, there is just something so darkly alluring about the bad ones that you can’t help but love. Black is no exception. He is enchanting, compelling, passionate and downright sexy. Familiar faces are bought back into this book. The MacKelter twins, Drustan and Daegus and their wives Gwen and Chloe make appearances that make a reader like me grin from ear-to-ear. With such memorable characters with distinct personality traits and quirks, Moning makes me wish I were able to travel into their world and experience the magic myself. With one last Highlander book left for me to read, I am a little saddened to know that the end is near. I’ve fallen hard for all the books in the series. Bringing sexual tension in spades, Moning certainly knows how to do a romance right. I just hope that she’ll one day return to this time and bring us more highlander heroes to die for.

    I'm pretty sick of saying the same thing...EVERY FREAKING ONE OF THESE BOOKS HAVE THE SAME FORMAT. Here's a summary of EVERY FREAKING BOOK IN THIS SERIES: The heroine: an unsuspecting, blonde, beautiful, petite (except Circenn's wife), 20-something year old virgin has finally made a life for herself from her less than perfect upbringing. She can feel that her life's not perfect and there's something missing in it.

She can feel that her life's not perfect and there's something missing in it. The hero: he's a six and a half foot, beautiful/handsome beyond belief, physically brawn, and more powerful than everyone around-alpha male. Let's not forget--he's also anatomically overly well endowed, with dark hair and dark eyes (except Daegus, who's eyes only turned dark when he used too much magic while he was possessed), and women swooned over him (the hero) everywhere he went. He is at the lowest point in his life. The two meet, fall in love and conquer some crisis that will forever change the world if they don't stop it. Most of the books are 300-350 pages long. They usually have their first kiss somewhere around chapter 10-13ish; first sex within the LAST 75 pages (then proceed to couple/tup every chance they could) of the book; some event will cause her to loose him (death, time travel, misunderstanding, etc,...) within the last 50 pages of the book; she's bereft by the lose and grieves, and finally they find out they love each other within the last 15 pages of the book. By this book, 'The Immortal Highlander' everyone from books 1-6 has had children. I'm happy that Ms. Moning is a successful author. I'm happy that her cookie-cutter format works for her and so many of her followers. For myself, once I complete the bundle (books 1-7) which I'm determined to get my money's worth from, I doubt I would read or recommend Ms. Moning's Series to anyone. Happy reading, Rae

There is something about this series that calls to me. And I can't tell you why. The books are basically formulaic -- (1)Our heroine is a virgin. (2)Our hero is gorgeous, sexy, large, and well endowed.

(2)Our hero is gorgeous, sexy, large, and well endowed. (3)There is travel either to or from to Scotland or both. (4)There is fae magic or mischief. (5)Our hero and heroine seem to get separated. (6)There is a nice tearful reunion. (7)There is a happily ever after. Again, I don't care. It works for me. In this installment, the previously mischievious Adam gets sent to the human world without all of his fae powers. Adam is being punished for helping the MacKeltar brothers. He can still sift from place to place, but he is invisible to humans except for Gabrielle, a sidhe-seer. Gabrielle has been taught to avoid the fae and not let them know that she can see them. She spend a lot of time avoiding Adam, but he keeps reappearing until she agrees to help him. Need I add that Adam is devastatingly gorgeous and Gabrielle is attracted to him. A romance slowly develops between the two. Adam is being pursued by Darroc (hmmm...wonder if he will appear in the Fever series somewhere) and Adam and Gabrielle end up in Scotland at the MacKeltar's castle. I loved how this book showed the MacKeltar brothers' happily ever after with their women. Adam's character surprised me. I always thought of him as a trouble maker. I liked seeing the tender, vulnerable, and loving Adam. Gabrielle is one lucky girl. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

    Imagine that you’ve been taught your whole life that the Fae are Bad. Very Bad. You have to avoid them at all cost. If you can’t avoid them, don’t look at them. If you get caught looking at them, find a way to make them think you weren’t. And above all, for fuck’s sake, whatever you do, DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM. That’s how you survive.

And while you’re not certain (because no one who is taken ever returns), you’re pretty sure that they’ll kill you. These are the rules that have been ground into our female lead’s head since infancy. So you can imagine my annoyance when only 7% into this book, she: 1. Looks at one. 2. Gets caught looking at one 3. Doesn’t try to make him think she wasn’t looking 4. TALKS TO HIM. *facepalm* That’s Gabrielle, our TSTL Mary Sue female lead. Which I should have expected going into this, because she’s pretty much a cut and paste of all the other female leads in this series. I only have myself to blame. I just finished re-reading Darkfever, and just finished binge-watching Outlander, and this seemed like a perfect in-between. This came out just a year before Darkfever, and contains some back story to the Fever series, so, for whatever reason, I was hoping that this would be more like Fever and less like the other books in this series. All of which I’ve DNFed. I was hoping for someone a little more like Mac. You know, someone who can think on their feet, learns quickly, isn’t a complete moron… Oh, well. Moving on.

He is to be 'human' and mostly powerless until she forgives him. But there is more going on than she or even he knows. He needs to contact her to plead forgiveness, but he is invisible to humans and the Fae are invisible to him. Enter Gabrielle who has lived under the burden of being able to see the Fae her whole life. She's become quite adept at hiding her 'talent/curse' until she ogles Adam Black and all his beefy goodness. Now he knows she sees him and is determined to get her to help him. I loved how Gabby was so determined to not let him seduce her. She was seriously afraid for her life! Adam is used to women falling at his feet, and he figures he knows just how to seduce a woman's help after over 1000 years of practice. But seducing Gabrielle will require him to become more emotionally involved than he is used to. I liked how all the characters are fallible and quirky. There's also the cultural differences. Despite how much both Gabby and Adam think they know about each other's people, they don't know the half of it! I LOVED the epilogue for this one. Honestly it was what gave the 5th star for me. I listened to this on audio and the reader, Phil Gigante, is fantastic as usual!

    3.5 stars. I loved that this book really felt like an extension of the Fever series! Bringing Drustan and and Dageus back and tying Christian's family to Adam was genius! If you only have time to read one Highlander book before the release of Shadowfever, this is the one! There is so much crossover Fever goodness in this one. Although, I'd really say to start at book 4 and get caught up with Drustan and Dageus first before getting to Adam's story if you have the time. Adam Black's story gives me 3.5 stars.

Anyway, this is one of those really good books that deserves a sparkling review, so here goes: The book starts with our very favorite hero, Adam Black.

Possibly because it feels so final that I've completed Adam Black's book. Anyway, this is one of those really good books that deserves a sparkling review, so here goes: The book starts with our very favorite hero, Adam Black. Yes, the Fae who has meddled with countless human lives during the earlier books and is exceedingly arrogant under both Fae and human parameters. Anyway, he's an odd duck among the Fae since he actually likes the humans (even while he thinks himself far superior than them) and speaks in support of them on multiple occasions. The Seelie Queen, Aoibheal, has had enough of it and punishes Adam to live as an invisible human. This is tragic for the great Adam Black since a, he's lost all his awesome godly powers, b, he's gotta eat and sleep, and c, he's got no one to show off to and pass his time. So, Adam Black wallows in self-pity (sorta) until he meets Gabrielle, a law-student who happens to suffer from an affliction - she can see the Fae, even through their glamor. And so, Gabielle happens to be the only person who can see and help Adam Black. Of course, Gabrielle isn't too keen about helping Adam. Eventually, they are forced to work together to save the Seelie Queen from the threat of Darroc (the 'Lord Master' *snicker* from the Fever series). Adam Black is ridiculously hot. In fact, at times, I don't even care about the story because I love learning about him, talking about him, seeing how his mind works. Gabrielle is a pretty awesome heroine. In fact, I like her the best - compared to Gwen and Chloe. It's funny how she fights her attraction to the Fae. I loved the chemistry between Adam and Gabrielle - and their love scenes were *fans self* plain whoa. I don't have much else to say because it was so fun and I just loved it. I've already read the Fever series, it was kinda cool to read about how Darroc was cursed and Aoibheal pre-disappearance days. Overall, I highly recommend this book. I would advise everyone to read the Drustan and Dageus's book first - which is great for the story build-up.

As a member of the Seelie (Light) Fae Court, he's got a tie in to just about every one of the previous Highlander books. But in the last installment, The Dark Highlander, he pushed the Fae Queen too far, when he advocated for the life of Highlander Dageus MacKeltar. As punishment for his insolence, she makes him human. Not only that, she makes him invisible to the humans around him and takes away his ability to see other Fae. He is completely alone.. until he runs into Gabby. She is a sidhe-seer, someone who can see beyond Fae glamour. She can see and hear Adam... in all his sexy glory. She fights her attraction to him. But who could resist such a seduction? As Adam works to regain his immortality, the two travel to Scotland and team up the MacKeltar clan. At the same time, Darroc, another member of the Fae court, is plotting to kill Adam. He doesn't want Adam to interfere with his plan to break the covenant between man and Fae. So Darroc calls forth "Hunters," from the dark Unseelie realm to find our couple and dispatch them. If you are a fan of the Highlander series, you can't miss this one. Adam finally gets to feel what it's like to be one of the humans he is so enamoured with. We get to see or hear about past heroes like Drustan, Dageus & Circenn... even Grimm's family get a shout out. And for fans of the Fever series... this book is essentially a primer for all that we see in those books. We learn about the sidhe-seers and their relationship to the Fae, the Hunters, Darroc, and the series of events that lead almost directly to Darkfever. I liked this book for the love story at face value --but LOVED it for its place in Karen Marie Moning's rich and complex world. 4 1/2 stars.
