Reader Review: The Dark Highlander follows The Kiss of the Highlander and finishes the tale of the twin brothers. It also sets up the next novel in the Highlander series. It is as good as Drustan's story and I highly recommend it. Dageus broke the Compact to save his twin from death and now he must pay the price. Enter Chloe who will be his saving grace and off you go into a wonderful mystery, romance and sometimes humorous love story. This is a time-travel tale that is so well done that you wish it could really happen without the repercussions. I'm going to go back and read the first three novels in the series and already have Adam's story to read when I have finished those. Can't wait!

The Dark Highlander
In a place difficult for humans to find, a man, of sorts-it amused him to go by the name of Adam Black among mortals-approached a silk-canopied dais and knelt before his queen.
"My queen, The Compact is broken."
Aoibheal, queen of the Tuatha Dé Danaan, was silent for a longtime. When finally she turned to her consort, her voice dripped ice. "Summon the council."
Thousands of years before the birth of Christ, there settled in Ireland a race called the Tuatha Dé Danaan who, over time, became known as the True Race or the Fairy.
An advanced civilization from a faraway world, the Tuatha Dé Danaan educated some of the more promising humans they encountered in Druid ways. For a time, man and fairy shared the earth in peace, but sadly, bitter dissension arose between them, and the Tuatha Dé Danaan decided to move on. Legend claims they were driven "under the hills" into "fairy mounds." The truth is they never left our world, but hold their fantastic court in places difficult for humans to find.
After the Tuatha Dé Danaan left, the human Druids warred among themselves for power. Thirteen of their once faithful Druids turned to dark ways and-thanks to what the Tuatha Dé Danaan had taught them-nearly destroyed the earth.
The Tuatha Dé Danaan emerged from their hidden places and stopped the battle moments before the Druids succeeded in damaging the earth beyond repair. They stripped the Druids of their power, scattering them to the far corners of the earth. They punished the thirteen who'd turned dark by casting them into a place

I love a man with a tortured soul. This book does not disappoint if you are looking for a story of a strong but flawed man who meets a woman who can save him. It is also a must read as part of the Highlander series. This book really is not a stand alone romance. In order to understand the story, you have to begin at least on book number 3 (Touch of the Highlander).

This book is a great sequel to many of it's predecessors. Finally, the story of Dagaeus, the eternal martyr. I was sad to hear that he got possessed after trying to save his own brother from death. Moning has some ways in connecting the past with the present and possibly the future that makes this book a pleasant read. It opens your mind to a life of immortality and yet aloofness, the possibility of becoming the cause of the world's destruction just because of strong emotions.
I sincerely hope Moning has more Highlander series books to follow after the 8th book.
