really enjoyed this book. I love books about Ireland and the ancient Fey. Such a different life they lived. Moning is a good auther.I wll read more

4+ stars. Love these little nuggets, so delish!! Love Karen Moning's books, especially the darker Fever series, which the Highlander series seems to be performing as tasty appetizers, also you'll observe some background regarding the Fae Queen's (Fever series) involvement (or longterm manipulation) with the Scottish Keltar clan. These are more lighthearted, with lots of delicious sizzle and beautiful description of Scotland, great for a chemical-free mood-uplifter. Lots of Fae/Druids/Sorcers/Magical Scottish Highlands/gorgeous scenery.
Jessi St. James/almost Phd Archaeology runs into a man trapped in a mirror, lots of escapades in trying to help him out (wink, wink). Only he can protect her from the baddies. Features favorites Drustan, Daegus, Chloe, Gwen, as well.

I love Karen Marie Moning. Her Scottish Highlander characters are so much fun. They're all funny and passionate, in love with "their woman" from the moment they see them and ready for a good swordfight to get them back when they inevitably get kidnapped. Also the heroines are always strong, sassy women who make their men admit their feelings properly. Spell of the Highlander follows in the usual vein as well as continuing the story of the MacKeltars (a favourite theme of mine).

Easily 4+ stars. (No Spoilers). This book is like CANDY...wickedly enjoyable, short & sweet, but not epic by any means. I would recommend this only to someone in the mood for a typical romance with the gorgeous alpha male/gorgeous virgin female or anyone like me who's a huge KMM fan. Maybe I shouldn't use the word "typical" romance because paranormal aspects of the storyline have KMM's unique stamp i.e. her faery/Druid/hallows/Unseelie/Seelie world! (Which I love a lot!)

This book was truly fun and so easy to get into. I'm not a fast reader and I finished in a day and a half so it's not a huge investment of time. While reading this I was reminded how much I love KMM writing style. She has a way with words that often makes me smile and easily draws me into the characters. I am glad however for her career change to UF as I love her FEVER series twice as much as any of her romances because let's face it...romances are redundant because they need to satisfy certain reader's needs for romance with HEA closure. I don't fight it but accept them for what they are. The HIGHLANDER series, like any such romance series, SHOULD NOT be read one-after-another IMO.

BTW, I was suprised that at the end of the book things are mentioned that are practically spoilers for the FEVER series! She certainly had the groudwork set before her Fever series "dream"! Anyways, can't wait for her to write her next series!

Of the series this one seems more of fairy tale than the others, and that's a good thing. Who wouldn't want a handsome man cursed/trapped in a mirror? And of course, more Adam Black.

Such a good book
