The Dark Highlander (The Highlander Series #5)

By Karen Marie Moning



Journey to a world of ancient magic, breathtaking sensuality, thrilling time-travel…. Journey to the world of The Dark Highlander. Crisscrossing the continents and the centuries, here is a novel as gripping as it is sensual—an electrifying adventure that will leave you breathless….

I am Dageus MacKeltar, a man with one good conscience and thirteen bad ones, driven to sate my darkest desires…

From his penthouse lair high above Manhattan, Dageus looks out over a glittering city that calls to the darkness within him. A sixteenth-century Scot trapped between worlds, he is fighting a losing battle with the thirteen Druids who possess his soul, dooming him to an eternity of sexual pursuit. When Chloe Zanders, student of antiquities, is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable alpha male an irresistible lure.Before long, she is caught up in an ancient prophecy that will sweep her back into time to medieval Scotland. Plunged into a world of timeless magic and dark seduction, she will soon face the challenge of a lifetime: fighting thirteen evil spirits for the heart of one irresistible man….


The Dark Highlander is really three love stories.  A love story between a man and a woman, between brothers and between a father and son.

Dageus is a druid with a problem.  He has broken his oath in order to save his brother, Drustan. In breakng this oath, he has invited thirteen dark druid souls into his body that are slowly taking over.  Once they take over he we cease to exist.

Chloe is a bright spirited and tenacious.  She is passionate about relics, especially Scottish relics. She is about to go on adventure that will put her knowledge and heart to the test.

Again just like Kiss of the Highlander, The Dark Highlander is beautifully written.  But where Kiss of the Highlander was a little lighter, The Dark Highlander is more intense.  You still have the humour to break up the intensity but we learn the differences between they way the brothers deal with the world.  It explores many relationships.  You not only feel the love between Dageus and Chloe, but you get to know the relationship between the twin brothers and Dad and son all while trying to save Dageus. Dageus really learned how he fits into his family.

We also get to know more about the Compact that was created between The Tuatha De Danaan and The MacKeltar’s.  And the consequences of breaking the sacred Compact.

This book takes the reader on a journey through space and time.  It has joy and sorrow and always leaves you wanting to this book again.
