this was an excellent book. the story was full of life. Cian a druid from the 9th century is entranced in a dark fairy mirror by a dark sorcerer, for immorality. Jessica st James is an overworked grad student who is trying to work towards her goal of getting her PhD to become an archaeologist. she gets stuck in the battle of good and evil when she meets the druid in the mirror. there is lust, love, blood, sex, humor, and some tears in this book. very good read, I recommend this to everyone.

As with every one of Karen Marie Moning's books, I just fall in love with the plot, characters, and the sensual magic of each Paranormal book that she has written. Thus was true for Spell Of The Highlander. Although not my absolute favorite of hers, still a enjoyable read.

Jessi St James, is a young woman that is very close to getting her PH.D in Archealogy, and between her classes, work and trying to eat and sleep between she has no time for relationships. Jessi is very tired and is eager to get her degree and start doing what she loves, and maybe find love in the digs. However, her plans do change when her professor that she grades for, calls her up and tells her to make sure a important delivery arrives and to sign for it. Jessi, a bit confused by this request, but goes ahead and signs for the package. Then when it is unwrapped by the insistence of the "delivery boys" she finds a old and beautiful mirror. Which is unlike any other mirror that she has come across. The glass seems to have a dark mist within it, and when she spies a half naked gorgeous man, she passes it off as not enough sleep despite the chills she feels in the room. When she returns once more, a man surprises her and threatens her life. Just when she feels that there is no way out of this horrid crazy situation; she hears a voice that commands her to summon him out of the mirror. Thus the confusion begins within Jessi mind, she doesn't know who to believe. Not knowing if it was the right choice, she summons the unknown man out of the mirror, hoping that he will be someone that isn't out to kill her. So he defends her and one sensual interlude causes Jessi to feel things that she has never felt, only dreamed of. Then he runs out and disappears on her. Thinking he was just a dream, she assumes everything that happened was her imagination right? Wrong, before Jessi knows it she is on the run for her life, her companion a strange mysterious, magical man whom is centuries old and resides continually in a mirror until she summons him. Thus begins a adventure for a lifetime for Jess, and a love and blinding desire as old as time, and will creep up on them despite all the danger and mystery surrounding them.

As far as I know, this was one of the most sensual reads that I have read in a while. It also was filled with a intensity that will place you at the edge of your seat, and will get the heart thumping, and will bring a tear to your heart. I found this to be a very emotional read, especially toward the end. I won't spoil it too much, so I won't tell you why, but it definitely will pull at your heart strings as it did mine. I am definitely eager to read more of this series, since its one my favorite Scot Series! ( )

Spell of the Highlander
4 Stars

Repeats familiar tropes from the previous installments, i.e., a hunky highlander suffering under some sort of curse and a virgin heroine who just happens to be his one true love. Nevertheless, the basic premise is quite entertaining as long as you don't take it too seriously, and the references to the Unseelie Hallows and hints at events to come in the Fever series are enjoyable.

Cian is an enigmatic amalgamation of opposites. On the one hand, he is primitive and barbaric with no compunction against using Voice to compel others to his bidding or even to force Jessi into having sex with him (although he probably wouldn't have done so). On the other hand, he has an ingrained sense of honor and is willing to die to atone for his past crimes and rid the world of a dangerous threat.

Jessi is feisty and adorable. She takes the revelations concerning the existence of magic, druids and the fae in stride, approaching the issues with a logical mind and reasoning it all out in her head. She is also more than capable of holding her own against the domineering Cian, and their banter and chemistry are a highlight of the story.

The return of Drustan & Gwen, and Daegus & Chloe is an added bonus and the lead into the Fever series is seamless and smooth. All in all, a solid conclusion to a delightful series. ( )

3.5 out of 5 stars. Not as good of storyline as I had hoped. However, the characters were cute and I couldn't get enough of them. I love the world that Ms. Moning has come up with for this series and her Fever series, especially how they both intertwine together! In this book you'll learn more background information that you didn't know about if you've only read the Fever series, so I could recommend reading this book just for that alone! I can't wait to see what will be in store next!

Aoibheal, queen of the Fae stood in the catacombs beneath The Belthew Building, concealed by countless layers of illusion, a formless projection of herself, beyond any Sidhe-seer‘s vision, beyond even her own race‘s perception.
