5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, but fun, 26 Jan. 2003
This review is from: The Dark Highlander, the (Mass Market Paperback)
The Dark Highlander is the first book I have read by this author, but I will be looking forward to reading others, when I get the chance. I was surprised, given the title and the blurb on the back by how much humor was injected into the contents of the book. To my mind, a little humor is never a bad thing. Too many novels in any genre take themselves too seriously.
Dark Highlander revolves around Dagues MacKeltar, a 16th century Scot who has come to the present to try and find a way to rid himself of the curse he fell under when saving his brothers life. The only thing that helps him fight against the curse, while he tries to find a way out of it, is sex. (How handy for a romance novel!) Dageus meets Chloe Zanders when she has been sent by her boss in a Manhattan museum to deliver a manuscript which he has traded for the right to examine. Chloe and he cross paths, and she wanders up to his pent house waiting for him, and finds that he is the one responsible for a rash of manuscript thefts. Now, he keeps her captive to prevent her telling.
Soon, they fall out of the rolls of captive and captor, and Chloe tries to help him out of his curse, traveling to Scotland and back in time to do it. I am not much for time travel novels, but this one seems to pull it off effortlessly. Well written, with good, well rounded characters, who have more than a few human flaws. This book is one to be pulled out again on a rainy Sunday afternoon, or just a day when I could use some escapism.
