5.0 su 5 stelle Moning's Best 16 ottobre 2002
Di "cowgirlwithagun" - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
THE DARK HIGHLANDER is intense, deep, and dark. For that reason, some readers may be put off by it, expecting a romance more like the light, funnier predecessor KISS OF THE HIGHLANDER. This cannot be a light read because of the character of Dageus and what he sacrifices (himself) in order to save his brother in KOTH.
Dageus is a spiritually tormented hero, which crosses over into the physical. Battling the 13 evil entities means he must try in any way to keep them at bay. Sex is his way of holding onto this life. This is also a time travel, but not in the sense that he is going to a place he's never been, such as in KOTH. Dageus is already in the future and must return to his own time in order to try and find the information he seeks to try and cure himself of these dark beings.
He's a darker version of Drustan, a more compelling hero that Drustan simply because he has to be. Chloe is the perfect heroine for him in that she is skeptical at first, but is slowly drawn into his world. She doesn't back down from the challenges that face her, but rather steps boldly with Dageus into an uncertain future. What I loved most about Dageus, though, is his love for his brother. He literally sacrifices himself in order to save Drustan, then again to save Chloe. It's rare for me that a book will bring me to tears, but the scene with his father did just that.
If you love intense, dangerous but courageous heroes, Dageus' book is one you will not want to miss. The Celtic lore that is the backbone of his plight might get too detailed for some to handle, but if you really pay attention, it really works for this story.
I've read some of the previous reviews and am a little surprised that some found that the love scenes were not hot. I guess they were skimming pages and didn't read the scenes where the tension was built up nicely and the love scenes were well-written.
THE DARK HIGHLANDER just proves to me that Moning's writing just gets better with each book she writes. It'll be hard for her to write a better hero than Dageus, though, but I'm sure she's up for the task. Moning is an exceptional writer and I thank her for giving us Dageus' story.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Story That Gives New Meaning To Tall, Dark, and Sexy!!!! 22 agosto 2003
Di Kristi Ahlers - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
This was the first time I've ever read Karen Marie Moning, and needless to say half way through this book I ran back out to Amazon and put her other four books in my shopping cart! I'm not big on time travel and really only read a few authors that pen this sub-genre. I have added Karen Marie Moning to this short list!!!
This was a very fun book due to the great characterization that she did. Chloe is a perfect complement to Dageus. She's funny, sweet, and totally from the 21st century. Dageus is tall, dark, sexy...all right he's yummy period, oh and did I mention a 16th century druid? Dageus is looking for a way to reverse a curse and Chloe is basically in the right place but at the wrong time and Dageus can't help himself. Chloe is his mate, his love, and he's not going to let her go! At least not if he can help it. Chloe on the other hand is innocent, has no idea what this highlander is thinking, and loves historic artifacts (Museum business is what brings her to Dageus in the first place) imagine her surprise when her curiosity lands her tied to Dageus' bed!
This was a great book with laughs, romance, and yes...even tears! I loved it and I can hardly wait for Ms. Monings other books to be delievered to my mailbox!

3.0 su 5 stelle Held so much potential 13 dicembre 2002
Di Sarah - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Dageus and Chloe's story had the potential to be a truly amazing story, but ended up for me, as only average (if even a little below average - 2  stars). To begin, let me say, that I found Ms. Moning to have an incredible imagination. The idea for the story is great, it is the execution that I had trouble with. First, Dageus has these 13 miserable, evil, desperate, lonely, frustrated, grasping souls trapped in his body. What great possibilities this could have opened up. Instead it is pushed into the background as just something that Dageus has to fight in order to keep himself "good" and not dark. These entities did not impress me as being so strong and all powerful (which they were supposed to be) if Dageus could keep them under control for so long. (I mean really, how long can one Druid hold out against 13 of equal power?) They really did not DO anything, they were just there, a temptation of sorts (for Dageus to use magic - which I didn't understand either, since his brother in the previous book could use magic with no ill effects, why should using magic for Dageus push him farther to the dark side?)
The story itself seemed a bit short to me. I would have liked to have seen a longer and better thought out climax/end scene and thought that as the reader, we would have been better met with about another 100 pages of story. Everything got very choppy with short groupings in the end few chapters, jumping between the different parties of the story. Chloe was an interesting character, but seemed very similar to Gwen in the previous book (small, "not perfect", gutsy, smart, etc). Although very convenient, I could appreciate that Chloe was a historian with a Celic background, but it did almost seem too "pat". The romance between Dageus and Chloe was decent. Seeing their attraction grow and Dageus's "nobility" in staying away from her sexually - even though that sexual release would have helped him was touching. Their first love scene was, uhm, a bit much, especially since Chloe was a virgin, but hey, I'll suspend my beliefs on that one.
On a side note, I found the imagery with Dageus's eyes quite interesting. Overall, this was an OK, book, though I suspect you will appreciate it more if you have read Kiss of the Highlander and were waiting for Drustan's brother's story.

5.0 su 5 stelle great romantic fantasy 1 ottobre 2002
Di Harriet Klausner - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Druid mage Daegus MacKeltar used his powers to travel back in time to save the life of his twin brother Drustan (see TO KISS A HIGHLANDER). However, Daegus pays a high price for his good deed as he released the spirits of thirteen evil Druids that share residency with him in his body. Desperate to re-incarcerate these malevolent beings, Daegus steals ancient Celtic texts in search of the spell that will do this. The Manhattan press dubs the thief the "Gaulish Ghost".

Medieval expert Chloe Zanders is shocked to learn that a curator of the Cloisters collection wants her to deliver a five century old reprint of the third book of Mannannan to some private collector who has provided artifact donations in exchange for reading the text. A wary Chloe delivers the book to Daegus, who recognizes his soul mate has arrived. Holding her prisoner, Daegus and Chloe travel to Scotland where he hopes to free his soul by imprisoning the Druids and to persuade her that they belong together through time and space.

This sequel is a great romantic fantasy that should provide Karen Marie Moning with a loyal cross genre audience awaiting her next book. The story line is action-packed, filled with tension, and never slows down even when the lead heroes debate their fate and attraction. The good vs. evil battle will hook fantasy readers with its feel of authenticity even with magic, incantations, and otherworldly demons. Ms. Moning seems heading to the read realm of greatness with THE DARK HIGHLANDER proving she is one of the best writers on the market today.

4.0 su 5 stelle 1/2* DARKER AND BETTER 8 novembre 2002
Di Desmond Chan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Superior time-travel romance gems are few and by. Most fanatics of such genre would agree that the classic by Jude Deveraux A Knight in Shining Armour reigns incomparable. That is until Karen Marie Moning releases her latest The Dark Highlander to be a worthy contender.
This is by far Ms. Moning's most complexed time-travel with its subversively darker tone and beautifully researched materials on Irish myths and historical tapestries - converging on the magical realms of Druids and a superior fairy-race Tuatha De Danaan. While the fairies indoctrinate the Druids on flourishing their civilization with science, 13 druids became avaricious and desired immortality like their otherworldly counterparts. The fairy imprisons them as dark souls trapped in the Stones - a time portal forbidden to humans and the chosen MacKeltars who guard them. Daegus, a 16th century Highlander in an attempt to rescue his twin brother, goes back in time to save him but ends up manipulated by the dark souls gradually.
He is thrown to the modern times - and voraciously reads up the scripts relevant to removing the curse. Earthy and sassy curator Chloe Zander delivers a sacred book and accidentally stumbles upon his identity as the Gaulish Ghost - a moniker for the thief of Celtic relics. Dageus bounds Chloe as his mate and together they search for his panacea, with descendents of the evil Druids on their heels....
Ms. Moning cleverly eschews from bombarding the reader and inserts her materials aptly. Her prose is snappy, fast and instead focuses on the characterization to accentuate the loyalty of Dageus and the saucy Chloe. Their effervescent sexual chemistry zings through the page and offers a respite from the frenetic pace of their rollicking adventure.
With so many developments at hand, it is all the more laudable that Ms. Moning, a former RITA winner strings them up coherently with her usual sleight-of-hand into an essential battle of overcoming odds with love. Of course Ms. Moning is deft after writing so many time-travel romance, but this passage through time is zippy, gleefully fun and darkly intriguing to give the best joyride I have experienced this year.
