4.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from Donna Grant! 3 Jun 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the sixth book in the Dark Sword deries by Donna Grant and this story centers on the winged warrior Broc and the druid healer Sonya. This story starts after Sonya has run away from MacLeod Castle and Broc must go after her.
I have been looking forward to Broc's book since we were first introduced to him. We learn a lot ore about his character and Sonya's. What really blew me away was the ending of this story as I didn't see it coming and it will take the series in a whole new direction. I look forward to the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Amazing Read by Donna! 10 Mar 2012
By Carla Gallway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have been infatuated with Broc ever since Wicked Highlander, when Quinn MacLeod was abducted by Deirdre and taken to Cairn Toul, the mountain where she kills Druids and uses her black magic to unleash the gods inside the Highlanders. The wyrran and Warriors gather there, waiting for the time when Deirdre will send her army to destroy the world. Broc played the good and bad guy so well, you never knew which side he was really on until recently. Broc has Poraxus, the God of Manuipulation bound to him and is the only warrior with wings and able to fly. His power is that he can locate anyone, anywhere.

Broc has been watching over Sonya and her sister Anice ever since he found them as babies and rescued them. He was one of Deirdre's Warriors back then so he hid them in a safe place where Deirdre could never find them. Being that Sonya and her sister are Druids, Deirdre would kill them to steal their life force. Broc has secretly been in love with Sonya ever since she became a woman but is determined to stay away from her. He believes himself cursed because any woman he has ever cared for has died and he's determined to protect Sonya from his curse. When Broc finds out that Sonya is gone from the castle he sets out to find her before Deirdre does.

When the last book "Shadow Highlander" ended, Sonya's life was turned upside down. Her healing powers have been failing her and her sister Anice was murdered by Deirdre's wyrran. Grief stricken over the death of her sister and heartbroken over Broc's harsh reaction, Sonya leaves the safety of MacLeod Castle and runs into the forest. Injured and not able to heal herself because of her failing magic, Sonya is in grave danger.

When Broc finds her, Sonya is near death with an infection from a cut on her hand. Because of a bad storm, Broc takes her to the nearest town and stays at a hotel to nurse her back to health. While there they run into Deirdre's wyrran and Broc is captured and taken back to Cairn Toul. Sonya follows and is determined to save Broc from Deirdre's wrath.

SO much happens in this book. I'm going to leave the review at this because this book changes everything in the series and leads into the new DARK WARRIOR series so I don't want to give away any spoilers. I've been waiting a long time to learn more about Broc and I could not wait for him to get together with Sonya and as always, Donna Grant did not disappoint. The ending happened a little too quickly but it's because the entire plot and story line have been taken into a new direction so it was understandable.

The DARK SWORD series is one of my top favorite series and always will be. I can't wait for the first DARK WARRIORS book, "Midnight's Master" to be released (which BTW is on May 22) to see the new journey Donna has sent these amazing warriors on.

I give DARKEST HIGHLANDER 5 out of 5 stars

2.0 out of 5 stars Lather. Rinse. Repeat 3 April 2012
By Cybercliper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a hard read because it was so much like the previous books - there wasn't really anything new. Talk about a plot that goes nowhere - six books later and we're back to where we started.

Deirdre is back in Cairn Toul killing Mie (Druids with good magic) to feed her Drough (black) magic. She still wants to take over the world after she releases the warriors' gods, and kill or capture the MacLeod brothers. Even with all the sacrificing and blood letting poor Deirdre has been turned into almost a comedic character easily thwarted and her dialogue makes her sound like she's a dimwitted lackey instead of an evil mastermind.

Hero Broc wasn't much of a hero. The "woe is me" angst was there but I didn't really care considering how many people he murdered for Deirdre. The clinker for me was Broc and his association with Anice - heroine Sonya's sister. While out on a murderous hunt for Druids to fulfill Deirdre's blood thirsty magic, Broc found two little girls - Anice and Sonya - and took them to another Druid village to hide them. Later he would come back to check up on them. Broc is caught spying on Sonya by Anice and she puts the moves on him. He knows he should push her away but desperate for another's touch instead took her as his lover while his gaze was on Sonya. He admits it was wrong but his pitiful excuse - "I'm just a man" doesn't wash since women for coin were readily available. Broc is also concerned that he is cursed because every non family female he's ever gotten close to dies. Evidently Anice was expendable because he had no problem getting close to her even though he says it's Sonya who's always made his heart beat.

Heroine Sonya is a pity party waiting for a place to happen. She had no idea her sister even knew Broc until Anice was killed and she saw how Broc reacted. Thinking her magic has deserted her and feeling useless to the others in the castle, feeling betrayed by Broc and Anice, she takes her pity party on the road making Broc hunt her down. They both end of captured by Deirdre, escape, and go on the hunt for the next missing artifact to thwart Deirdre's evil plans.

Romance wasn't really there. There was a lot of lust ridden angst in Broc's and Sonya's internal dialogue but I never felt there was any love. There was no foundation for it to build upon and the thing with Anice was just swept into the background as if it never happened. That lack of resolution made the feelings between Broc and Sonya appear even more superficial - desperation built upon circumstance and danger - not love. They knew almost nothing about each other.

This series is now moving into the future. When Deirdre is pulled four centuries into the future by a strong, foreign magic, Logan, Ramsey, Camdyn and Arran decide to follow. Past, present, or future this series is over for me and if you've read any of the previous books - then you've read this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Darkest Highlander, A Review for Tea and Book 1 Feb 2012
By Shauni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Broc story is here!! I suppose I could just stop there.. Broc's story Darkest Highlander is the sixth in Dona Grant's Dark Sword Series and by far her most compelling. It was so intense, I was forced to put it down and walk away on a regular basis. Now, I know that sounds just wrong but for me.. when something is so gripping, when you are never quite sure what is going to happen next and when you are held on the edge of suspense.. to me I have to put it down and walk away.. or I go nuts. This was one of those stories.. I spent most of my time while reading this book on the edge of my seat.. chewing my nails and wonder what was going to happen next.

Broc has always been my favorite, he was broody, intense and BLUE.. well when his god took over he's blue and of course Broc is the only warrior with wings. And there is just something sexy about wings. I wonder what I would do if I actually met someone with wings? They are just so very sexy in books.

Broc spent centuries of his life, once his god was unbound as a spy in Deidre's fortress under the mountain. Forced to round up druids and deliver them to Deidre he never really thought he would find a way out. Then when the Warriors chose to stand together against her, Broc stood with them. Finally able to share his true feelings and loyalties.. he is a true asset to the Warriors.

Sonya, the strongest of the Druids had a crisis of faith and lost the use of her magic. Feeling lost, alone and just a little betrayed she flees the safety of the castle and strikes out on her own. I am not quite sure why such a practical character would do something quite this stupid but I kind of liked it. So many smart women find themselves doing stupid things then later asking themselves what the heck was I thinking?

Broc and Sonya find themselves in one adventure after another.. From Sonya fleeing the fortress and falling victim to wolves to Broc falling into Deidre's hands these two seem determined to save each other and yet never quite admit how they feel. Ms Grant does an excellent job keeping us entertained and hiding the fact that these two really do act without thinking just a bit too much.
Sometimes books tick me off because it is so obvious characters are meant for each other, I just want to smack them upside the head. The fact is if they did then the story would really pretty much be over before it ever began. And Broc and Sonya had a wonderful story..

We saw some interesting previews on what is going to happen next in the series and one whammy of a surprise. Obviously I can't share but this book was worth reading if only for the surprise..

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.75 3 Feb 2012
By Under The Covers Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
(more like a 3.75. Yes, it's possible ;P)
Reviwed by Ann(Under the Covers Book Blog)

DARKEST HIGHLANDER is the final book in the Dark Sword series by Donna Grant. This is Broc and Sonya's story. For years, Broc has watched over Sonya and Anice. However, when Anice dies, Broc finds himself revealing his feelings to Sonya as if he can't stop the words from flowing out of his mouth. He is drawn to her in a way that is undeniable. So when Sonya runs away and is almost attacked by a wolf, Broc takes his Warrior form and goes on a frantic search to rescue her.

Our hero and heroine have some unique abilities that make them very special. Broc is possessed by a god called Poraxus. With this inside him, he is able to grow bat-like wings while his skin turns into an indigo blue, giving in a much needed advantage against the wyrran. Meanwhile, Sonya is Druid, though when we start the book, she doesn't have access to her powers. I really enjoyed the paranormal elements of this book. It added such a nice touch to the characters, especially Broc who I couldn't resist.

"Ever so slowly, he leaned toward her. His eyes held all the passion, all the yearning, she had ever hoped to see. His forehead touched hers, their breaths mingling as time halted.
Excitement bloomed and built within her, drowning her in the fervor of the desire that grew between them. It was palpable, tangible. Real."

I am having a hard time rating this book because I did think that the first part of the book was slow. It isn't until midway through the book that the magic really happens. When the village that Broc and Sonya are hiding in is attacked by wyrran, Broc tells Sonya to lock herself in the room while he kills them all. When things turn for the worse, Broc finds himself in his enemy's hands; Deirdre now has her claws into him and it is now up to Sonya to try to help him.

I had a hard time liking Sonya in the beginning. At the start of the book, she whined a lot about her fading powers. She kept telling herself that she was a Druid and that without her powers, she was nothing, meaningless. I wanted her to see past that. And thankfully, she does! There is a lot of growth in her character and I loved reading about it.

The chemistry between Broc and Sonya is potent and undeniable. You can feel it from the very first page. I was definitely rooting for these two to be together.

There is also some insight into the spinoff series that Grant has planned called the Dark Warriors. I love it when authors weave their series together. Midnight Master's sounds promising so I'll be sure to check that new series out!
