Book Description

24 April 2012
Between the Highlander and Fever worlds lies a place beyond imagining.

This new edition of the novella contains more than 100 pages of bonus material, including:
• a deleted scene from Kiss of the Highlander
• a proposal for a never-published romance
• an alternate opening version of The Dark Highlander
• a sneak peek at art from the upcoming graphic novel Fever Moon
For the first time in hardcover, here is #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s novella Into the Dreaming, a tale of Highland fantasy, star-crossed lovers, and the timeless manipulation of the ancient, immortal Unseelie king. This is Moning at her romantic, funniest finest.
Free him from his ice-borne hell . . .
Stolen from his beloved home in the Highlands of Scotland, imprisoned in the Unseelie king’s dark, frosty kingdom, Aedan MacKinnon endured centuries of torture before becoming the icy, emotionless Vengeance, the dark king’s dispatcher of death and destruction in the mortal realm.
And in his century you both may dwell . . .
Aspiring romance novelist Jane Sillee has always believed that she was born in the wrong century, but she’s managed to make a decent enough life for herself—if only she could stop having those recurring dreams about a man too perfect to exist.
In the Dreaming you have loved him . . .
Haunted every night of her life by a devastatingly sexy Highlander who comes to her while she sleeps, Jane tries to write him out of her head and heart. As a child he protected her, as a woman he loves her.
Now in the Waking you must save him . . .
When an ancient tapestry bearing the likeness of her beloved Highlander arrives on her doorstep, Jane is whisked back in time to fifteenth-century Scotland, to the castle of Dun Haakon on the isle of Skye, where she is given one chance to save her dream lover . . . or lose him forever to the Unseelie king.
Caught in a deadly game between the light and dark courts of the Fae, Jane must find a way through the ice to the heart of her Highander. But will the love of one mortal woman be enough to defeat such ancient and ruthless immortal enemies?

5.0 out of 5 stars Lighhearted offshoot of Highlander 22 Sep 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a short novella, an offshoot of the Highlander series.

In the year 928, the Dark King of the Unseelie (the nasty fairies), tricks and captures Aedan MacKinnon of Skye, great grandson of Kenneth McAlpin King of Scotland.

The Dark King promises to spare MacKinnon's clan if Aedon pledges to stay in the Dark Kingdom for five years. Aedon agrees, thinking that five years is little to give for the lives of his family. However, little does he know, but the the years are not human years but faery years - so he has pledged himself for five hundred years. The Dark King wishes to turn Aedan into his human assassin to wreck vengence on humans, as the Dark Seelie can not venture into mortal realm themselves.

The Seelie Queen (queen of the Light fae), cannot overturn the dark king's action, but vows that she will win the mortal back from the Dark Kingdom by using the concession that the King has had to make in any bargain between a mortal and fairy - there must be the possibility that the mortal can win his freedom. The Dark King therefore has conceded that at the end of his sentence, Aedan can win back his freedom and home, if by the end of one month he is loved by and in love with a mortal woman.

The Seelie Queen therefore chooses a woman and in dreams has her and Aedan fall in love.

Present day USA, Jane Sillee is an aspiring novelist whose stories keep getting rejected by publishers. She writes love stories about a dark highlander that she has dreamt about since she was a child. One day a tapestry is mysteriously delivered to her door. On it is the figure of a highlander standing in front of a castle. It is of course the man she has dreamt about and his name is woven into the tapestry.

I rarely read anthologies or short stories, but since it was Karen Marie Moning I simply had to read this book--short or not--and I must say I was definitely NOT disappointed! Ms. Moning again writes a phenomenal story with a hero redeemed by love and two soulmates who find each other--which is my ultimate favorite type of storyline. This book may be short, but it is chalk full of passion, romance, adventure & fantasy. The story is about a tortured soul saved by a time traveling romance writer who must break an evil spell, and has a clever and witty storyline, time travel, well written characters and a lovely bonus is that it takes place in Scotland. Intersperced in the book I also appreciated the humor and chuckled often at Ms. Moning poking a wee bit of fun at her profession and love the play on Jane's last name, and also what a hysterical name for the kitten! I do not feel bad saying that yes, I wish this had been a full length novel what with the intriguing passionate plot, enjoyable characters, and the delightful sense of humor throughout this tale, but please do not let that stop you from reading a fabulous book! Also, if you missed reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates, go and read it.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT THE BEST BY FAR 8 July 2007
By 1
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I failed to see how many pages were in this book (112)when reading the product info page and was looking forward to losing myself for a few hours once this book arrived. It was so short it should not be classed as a novel. I am a huge Karen Marie Moning fan, but the book was so short, it was impossible to get caught up in the 2 main characters, there was no lead up to the love story, it just went straight for the kill,no build up whatsoever and the love between the 2 characters was not believeable, it was difficult to believe the woman could be so in love with the man after physically being in his prescence for1 day(prior to this, she'd only dreamt of him) This is the least favourite of her books, so i would only recommend it once you have read all her other books.

3.0 out of 5 stars story's good. Bonus material not so hot. 14 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The bonus material seemed irrelevant, since the full stories in the highlander series are some of the best i've ever read.why put more frosting on a cake that is allredy yummy.
I wish there were more on the way.
The story itself is great but to short.
