As a student of Tarot (my first of 6 books on the Tarot can be ordered here on Amazon.com - search on Jacqueline Lichtenberg and find NEVER CROSS A PALM WITH SILVER)-- I have studied astrology and various occult disciplines, including some Martial Arts. There are many things I love about HIGHLANDER the tv show, and Neason has captured most of them in this single novel. More, she's done it without any false moves. She handles the core matters of the spiritual disciplines behind The Art with firm authority -- so you hardly notice they're there. That is the mark of the highest level craftsmanship in writing. It's what makes for a 'good read' -- and Neason has delivered that. In addition, she has crafted a novel which embraces my favorite aspects of Duncan's character. Originally, I was attracted to HIGHLANDER because it told the story of a real Action/Adventure Hero who broke all the rules of tv and movies. He maintains committed Relationships with women. Love it. I absolutely love it. Jacqueline Lichtenberg email@example.com
This book gets thumbs up from me: it is everything that a Highlander tie-in novel should be. Duncan's character is developed with respect and affection, the background history and culture are researched with thoroughness, and the ethos of the series is maintained throughout.
As a recent convert to the Highlander subculture, I am enjoying catching up on what others have been enjoying for 10 years. I *did not* however enjoy this book. It was what no book of its genre should be -- boring.
