Deirdre is back in Cairn Toul killing Mie (Druids with good magic) to feed her Drough (black) magic. She still wants to take over the world after she releases the warriors' gods, and kill or capture the MacLeod brothers. Even with all the sacrificing and blood letting poor Deirdre has been turned into almost a comedic character easily thwarted and her dialogue makes her sound like she's a dimwitted lackey instead of an evil mastermind.
Hero Broc wasn't much of a hero. The "woe is me" angst was there but I didn't really care considering how many people he murdered for Deirdre. The clinker for me was Broc and his association with Anice - heroine Sonya's sister. While out on a murderous hunt for Druids to fulfill Deirdre's blood thirsty magic, Broc found two little girls - Anice and Sonya - and took them to another Druid village to hide them. Later he would come back to check up on them. Broc is caught spying on Sonya by Anice and she puts the moves on him. He knows he should push her away but desperate for another's touch instead took her as his lover while his gaze was on Sonya. He admits it was wrong but his pitiful excuse - "I'm just a man" doesn't wash since women for coin were readily available. Broc is also concerned that he is cursed because every non family female he's ever gotten close to dies. Evidently Anice was expendable because he had no problem getting close to her even though he says it's Sonya who's always made his heart beat.
Heroine Sonya is a pity party waiting for a place to happen.Read more ›
Broc has been watching over Sonya and her sister Anice ever since he found them as babies and rescued them. He was one of Deirdre's Warriors back then so he hid them in a safe place where Deirdre could never find them. Being that Sonya and her sister are Druids, Deirdre would kill them to steal their life force. Broc has secretly been in love with Sonya ever since she became a woman but is determined to stay away from her. He believes himself cursed because any woman he has ever cared for has died and he's determined to protect Sonya from his curse. When Broc finds out that Sonya is gone from the castle he sets out to find her before Deirdre does.
When the last book "Shadow Highlander" ended, Sonya's life was turned upside down. Her healing powers have been failing her and her sister Anice was murdered by Deirdre's wyrran. Grief stricken over the death of her sister and heartbroken over Broc's harsh reaction, Sonya leaves the safety of MacLeod Castle and runs into the forest. Injured and not able to heal herself because of her failing magic, Sonya is in grave danger.
When Broc finds her, Sonya is near death with an infection from a cut on her hand.Read more ›
Broc has always been my favorite, he was broody, intense and BLUE.. well when his god took over he's blue and of course Broc is the only warrior with wings. And there is just something sexy about wings. I wonder what I would do if I actually met someone with wings? They are just so very sexy in books.
Broc spent centuries of his life, once his god was unbound as a spy in Deidre's fortress under the mountain. Forced to round up druids and deliver them to Deidre he never really thought he would find a way out. Then when the Warriors chose to stand together against her, Broc stood with them. Finally able to share his true feelings and loyalties.. he is a true asset to the Warriors.
Sonya, the strongest of the Druids had a crisis of faith and lost the use of her magic. Feeling lost, alone and just a little betrayed she flees the safety of the castle and strikes out on her own. I am not quite sure why such a practical character would do something quite this stupid but I kind of liked it. So many smart women find themselves doing stupid things then later asking themselves what the heck was I thinking?Read more ›
