7 Memorable Things about Donna Grant’s “Midnight’s Master”

(May Contain Spoilers)

1. Declan

Having one all-powerful evil druid was enough but things just got very interesting as Grant introduces Declan, a drough so powerful that he has been able to capture and hold Deirdre. Hoping that perhaps they will end up fighting and killing each other.

2. Time-travel

A nice twist to the plot, the Dark World series has jumped forward to our time period. Very cool to see how the characters change and adapt to the new times.

3. Gwynn Austin

Very independent, Gwynn is a druid who can hear the wind and shows immense courage, daring, and resourcefulness in her journey to find the artifact.

4. Logan Hamilton

Logan has been one of my favorite Warriors and it was enjoyable seeing him fall in love and finally lift the burden of his shameful secret. Totally cool that he can control water!

5. Heat

As always, Grant delivers a true romance novel as things heat up between Logan and Gwynn.

6. Writing

Grant continues her fantastic writing style in “Midnight’s Master.” The novel moves forward at a good pace and offers enough description to create the scene without boring readers with too many details.

7. Midnight’s Lover

The Dark World series continues in the Dark Warriors book 2, “Midnight’s Lover.”

But just as they begin to realize and explore the love building between them, Broc is captured by the powerful druid Deirdre. Desperate to save the man who has watched over her all her life, Sonya rushes to rescue Broc from Deirdre’s clutches before its too late.

7 Delicious Things about Donna Grant’s “Darkest Highlander”

(May Contain Spoilers)

1. The Couple

Broc and Sonya have been featured in the Dark World series for a few books now and the subtle dance of the chemistry between these two has created some serious tension. Them getting together has been much anticipated and Donna Grant finally delivers in “Darkest Highlander.”

2. Sonya

Sonya is strong in so many ways. She is a powerful red-headed druid of healing, she communes with trees, she fights for the man she loves, and stands up for what she believes in. A truly inspirational heroine.

3. Druid Powers

The most compelling thing about Donna Grant’s Dark World series is the lore and all the tiny details included. One such tiny detail is that the druids have some very unique powers: Sonya can communicate with trees, Brenna is able to see through the eyes of animals, Marcail can take the pain of others, etc.

4. Steamy

Things heat up betwen Sonya and Broc and as always, Donna Grant provides some steamy, erotic scenes.

5. Malcolm

It was heartbreaking for Malcolm to leave MacLeod castle but his story just got so much more interesting now that he has been changed into a Warrior. Very curious to see how his character arch will play out in the battle against Deirdre.

6. Phelan

Another character that is most intriguing, Phelan makes another brief appearance in “Darkest Highlander.” Deeply traumatized and abused for most of his life, Phelan is a wild card who has not joined the MacLeods but who has an insatiable hatred for Deirdre. It will be interesting to see how his story unfolds.

7. Midnight’s Master

Thankfully Donna Grant’s wonderful Dark World series continues in “Midnight’s Master” book 1 of the Dark Warriors series.

Nikki’s Rating: 7 out of 10

Summary: In a daring attempt to save as many druids as he can, Galen invites a clan of druids to MacLeod castle. As they travel across Scotland, Galen finds out that not all is as it seems. The druids are hiding a terrible secret, a secret that involves Reaghan, the druid that has caught his eye. With discord and strife beginning to tear at the alliance between druids and the Warriors of MacLeod castle, Galen must do all he can to protect Reaghan or risk losing her forever.

7 Suave Things about Donna Grant’s “Shadow Highlander”

(May Contain Spoilers)

1. The Lore

Donna Grant has a truly creative imagination and even with many characters, no two Warriors have the same power/ability. “Shadow Highlander” focuses on Galen who has the ability to read minds when touching another and really shows what a burden this power is.

2. Reaghan

A very powerful druid who is extremely courageous and tries to protect her people at any cost. She is fierce and yet kind and gentle, a good fit for Galen.

3. Galen

Cursed and blessed with telepathic abilities, Galen struggles throughout “Shadow Highlander” as his power take their toll whenever he touches another. It is a lonely burden and one that truly disturbs him when he comes into contact with an evil-being. Happily, Galen learns to control his power and it is no longer his dirty secret.

4. The Plot

Just when you thought things were coming to an end for Deirdre… The crazy bitch is too powerful for a simple death by killing the body, oh no, now we got to find some artifacts, locate her sister, then wake said sister up. So complicated but so intriguing!

5. Racy

Things get hot and racy between Galen and Reaghan in “Shadow Highlander.”

6. Happy Ending

“Shadow Highlander” made me so nervous towards the end! I was really afraid that Galen would lose Reaghan and/or he wouldn’t be able to touch her without reading her mind. Thankfully we can all breathe a sigh of relief as things worked out in the end.

7. Darkest Highlander

As we now know that Deirdre’s body and spirit must be destroyed to end her, the Dark World series continues in “Darkest Highlander.”

7 Ultimate Things about Donna Grant’s “Untamed Highlander”

Untamed Highlander

Dark World Book 4; Dark Swords Book 4

by Donna Grant

Nikki’s Rating: 7 out of 10

Summary: Sworn to kill all droughs, evil black magic using druids, Hayden Campbell saves Isla, not knowing what she is. Forced to become drough in order to save her sister and young niece, Isla tries to prove that she is not evil incarnate but Hayden is having none of it. Wanting vengeance for his kinsmen who died by Druid magic, Hayden seeks out Isla to kill her but finds his very heart ensnared by the beguiling magical woman.

7 Ultimate Things about Donna Grant’s “Untamed Highlander”

(May Contain Spoilers)

1. The Druids

One of the many charms of the Dark World series as a whole is the lore. Donna Grant includes the unique terms of mie for the good, nature-based druids and drough for the evil, dark-magic wielding druids. These groups worked together in the past to conquer a mutual enemy.

2. Isla

More than she seems, Isla is a very powerful drough that is not in fact evil. Never fully committing herself to the devil, Isla was coerced into becoming drough by Deirdre. Tormented by the deeds she did for Deirdre in order to save her niece and sister, Isla is a compelling character who battles with deep self-hatred and welcomes death.

3. Hayden Campbell

Another character dealing with lots of hatred, Hayden is a very angry man. Regardless, he is eventually able to see Isla as a person, not just as a member, and embraces their love.

4. Sweltering

With all the hate, rage, and anger going on between them, it gets incredibly hot between Isla and Hayden in “Untamed Highlander.”

5. The Warriors

All the Warriors throughout the Dark World series have different looks, like the color of their skin and eyes but some also have horns of varying shapes and sizes! Then there is  Broc who has wings. Diversity is always appreciated!

6. Pacing

As with all the Dark World novels thus far, pacing and writing were great, keeping me interested and making it hard to put down the book!

7. Shadow Highlander

As the war continues with Deirdre, Donna Grant’s Dark World and Dark Swords series continues in “Shadow Highlander.”

7 Worthy Things about Donna Grant’s “Wicked Highlander”

Wicked Highlander

Dark World Book 3; Dark Sword Book 3

by Donna Grant

Nikki’s Rating: 7 out of 10

Summary: Captured once again by his eternal enemy Deirdre, Quinn must stay alive until his brothers are able to rescue him. Harder still, he must keep his sanity and not give in to the ancient demon lurking below his skin desperate to escape and take over Quinn’s mind. Believing that there is nothing that Deirdre could do to him to make him become her lover, he is sadly mistaken when he falls in love with Marcail, a druid Deirdre is trying to kill. Quinn is out of time and now he must choose between losing his very soul or losing the love of his life forever.

7 Worthy Things about Donna Grant’s “Wicked Highlander”

(May Contain Spoilers)

1. Quinn MacLeod

While Fallon is the leader and Lucan is the “good guy”, Quinn is the MacLeod “bad boy,” making him absolutely tantalizing and irresistible. Tormented by his failure to save his family years ago, Quinn is reckless and rageful but with a tender heart and fierce protectiveness of those he cares for.

2. Marcail

Beautiful Marcail with her hair of braids is a powerful druid but she is also brave, resourceful, thoughtful, and so caring of all around her. With the ability to take others’ pain away, she allows herself to suffer instead.

3. New Warriors

“Wicked Highlander” introduces more Warriors that may join the MacLeod brothers in their fight against Deirdre. There are Arron, the identical twins Duncan and Ian, as well as questionable Charon, who probably can’t be trusted.

4. The Villainess

The Dark World series features a very intriguing villainess. Deirdre is not just a power-hungry bitch but is a powerful drough, a dark-magic druid, who is aligned with the Devil himself. She is evil and as far as anyone can tell, immortal. Killing her is going to take some serious power and strategy.

5. Passionate

“Wicked Highlander” features plenty of passionate scenes between Marcail and Quinn as they fall for each other.

6. Three Pieces to the Whole

There are so many original and interesting bits to Donna Grant’s Dark World series, which makes reading the series all that more enjoyable. While the ancient evil gods normally choose the strongest warrior in a clan to possess, the MacLeod brothers all share one god as they were all considered equally strong. Being 3 pieces of the whole, when they fight together they are nearly unstoppable.

7. Untamed Highlander

The bitch just won’t die but happily, that means more sexy Warriors for us! The Dark World series continues in Donna Grant’s “Untamed Highlander.”

Forbidden Highlander

Dark World Book 2; Dark Sword Book 2

by Donna Grant

7 Fabulous Things about Donna Grant’s “Forbidden Highlander”

(May Contain Spoilers)

1. Fallon MacLeod

One of the strongest qualities of Fallon is that he is able to view Larena as an equal. While he would love to keep her safe, he realizes that she is a warrior in her own right and is able to gracefully accept her and her aid in battle. Fallon is not threatened by having a strong warrior woman for his ladylove.

2. Larena Monroe

Not only is the woman a badass Warrior who can turn invisible, Larena endures years of being shunned and ignored by her clan and while this would cause most to become bitter and callous, Larena continues to be caring and protective of those around her, but just a bit more guarded.

3. Female Warrior

The overall lore is Donna Grant’s Dark World series is truly interesting and original. It was surprising and absolutely wonderful that “Forbidden Highlander” features a female Warrior as the ancient gods choose the strongest in the family line to inhabit. Of course, Larena is ostracized and shamed for being a powerful woman but then she finds her true home where she is accepted and loved for who she is.

4. Hot

Things heat up between Fallon and Larena throughout “Forbidden Highlander” and it is hot!

5. Amends

While by no means is “Forbidden Highlander” a story about an alcoholic nor does it focus on the depth and complication of alcoholism, I appreciate the fact that Fallon, being an alcoholic in recovery, is constantly focused on making amends. He understands that others will not trust him right away and that he has much to atone for.

6. Writing

Donna Grant’s writing style is enjoyable, she has great pacing, a fantastic imagination, and clear writing.

7. Wicked Highlander

As Quinn still needs saving, Donna Grant’s Dark World continues in “Wicked Highlander.”

4 Hopeful Things about Kira Brady’s “Hearts of Shadow”

Hearts of Shadow

Deadglass Book 2

by Kira Brady

Nikki’s Rating: 4 out of 10

Summary:  Grace Mercer must fight wraiths every day now that the world has plummeted into chaos due to the Unraveling. Caught in the middle of the war between the Kivati shapeshifters and the Drekar, dragon shifters, Grace is simply trying to survive like all other humans but Leif Asgard is convinced she is more than that. As Leif and Grace hunt for answers to save the world, something ancient begins to hunt them and the only way to save each other is to embrace the love they’ve been desperately denying.

4 Hopeful Things about Kira Brady’s “Hearts of Shadow”

(May Contain Spoilers)

1. Grace Mercer

Grace reminds me so much of Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium series. Both women are abrasive and downright rude but love deeply and are extremely loyal. Like Lisbeth, Grace kicks some major ass and takes shit from nobody.

2. The Lore

While novels featuring supernaturals are nothing new, I appreciate Kira Brandy bringing different elements into her universe. In “Hearts of Shadow,” the incorporation of runes to protect and actually use in battle was very interesting. And the Deadglass series features dragon-shifters, which is totally awesome!

3. Sweltering

Things heat up in “Hearts of Shadow” as Grace and Leif give in to their desires.

4. Hearts of Chaos

While Grace and Leif got their happily-ever-after, their world is in deep shit, Tiamat has awoken. The Deadglass series continues in Kira Brady’s “Hearts of Chaos.”
