Of course Kenzie is certainly a total hunk, and absolutely deliciously old-fashioned, protective and possessive. Swoon! ( what more can a gal want? :)
Once an immortal warrior cursed to live as a panther, Kenzie is finally free for the last 6 months to live and die as a man, and his destiny is to help other displaced souls. Initially, he's cautious in his attraction to Eve because his destiny as a Soul Warrior can put those he cares about in the path of constant danger.
But all that falls on way side when the MINE factor takes over and he will let nothing stand in his way of claiming Eve. Much to her dismay since he feels that only women need to love, while men have 'needs'. Ugh?!
Gotta love a medieval man, but he soon realizes the error of his ways:)
Eve, though she's attracted to him, is wary, since her failed marriage and recent divorce. And it annoys her to hell that Kenzie is always there to rescue her. So what if she's petite, she can defend herself and has she's proven it. Right?
This was an enjoyable book, with lovely humourous moments.
JC has drawn on personal experience in the creation of Mabel, Eve's mother, and her illness. It was touching and insightful to read about this tragic medical condition.
Love the relationship between Mabel and William, and Kenzie's absolute support of Eve during this time, unlike her awful ex.
Love the secondary characters too esp. William and Maddy. Hope they get a book.
Janet Chapman has started a new arc with The Midnight Bay series, a spin off from the Highlander series. What a great start it is. Can't wait for the next book.
The main male character in this book is Kenzie Gregor, who was the panther in the previous series. Kenzie was bespelled and turned into an animal to roam the centuries, until he realises that the power to turn back into a normal mortal man lies in his own hands, with his druid brother's help. Kenzie, the panther, appears in several of the "Highlander" books. However it is in the last book that we find out who his brother is and Kenzie turns back into a human.
In this new book, Kenzie and the ancient druid priest Father Daar, who has lost his powers, travel from Main and Kenzie buys a farm near to the sea. Also with them is William, the Irishman, who like Kenzie has been bespelled and turned into a dragon. However, no matter how hard he tries to explain, Kenzie can't get through to William that the ability to break the spell lies with him, William, alone. Now that he is back to a human being, Kenzie's mission in life is to help other "lost souls" like William.
Unfortunately, the farm that Kenzie has brought is lived in by Eve Anderson and her mother Mabel who is suffering from the onset of a form of Dementia.
Meeting Eve and Mabel in the bank, Kenzie is intrigued and attracted to Eve and shocked to later learn that in fact he is effectively putting them out of their home. Eve on the other hand is irritated by the large Scotsman. Recently divorced, she wants nothing to do with romance and men, even though her friend Maddy tries to persuade her that Kenzie is just right for her.
However, Kenzie and William have a problem.Read more ›
The plot was interesting and the characters pleasant. Kenzie Gregor, former panther turned soul warrior trying to help other souls. He buys a farm in Midnight Bay and unwittingly makes Eve and mother homeless. He likes Eve and decides to keep them around but Eve is wary of men after her divorce (though everyone thinks Kenzie is perfect for her).
The plot follows Kenzie trying to keep a wicked witch at Bay, set up an animal sanctuary, keep a stubborn dragon from being irresponsible and maybe having a relationship with Eve without putting her in harms way. It was enjoyable and the host of old-fashioned highland men made it pretty humorous at times. Despite this i felt that the whole book lacked depth. At the end of the book i still don't really understand Kenzie's quest as a soul warrior. There was no insight into his past as a panther (which apparently occurred in the original series) and i couldn't help but feel that he was a superficial character. We know more about Eve but i still wasn't drawn in. The enemy witch made many random storms but again wasn't a strong influence in the book.
I enjoyed it but i don't think that there was much of a story there at all. There were some good parts and so im torn over continuing reading this series.
A review said that you don't need to read the original series to understand and enjoy these but i think i disagree. I have not read the previous books so I cannot be sure that it would help but i felt a bit lost with this book trying to find the crux of the story. Either this series builds on the Highlander series or it is just not very good.

A poor read. I love this genre of book; time travelling, hung like a horse, celtic love god meets modern feisty woman, who can't quite believe they'll fit as he's so big and she's... Read morePublished 14 months ago by D. rouillion
