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. Because of a bad storm, Broc takes her to the nearest town and stays at a hotel to nurse her back to health. While there they run into Deirdre's wyrran and Broc is captured and taken back to Cairn Toul. Sonya follows and is determined to save Broc from Deirdre's wrath.
SO much happens in this book. I'm going to leave the review at this because this book changes everything in the series and leads into the new DARK WARRIOR series so I don't want to give away any spoilers. I've been waiting a long time to learn more about Broc and I could not wait for him to get together with Sonya and as always, Donna Grant did not disappoint. The ending happened a little too quickly but it's because the entire plot and story line have been taken into a new direction so it was understandable.
The DARK SWORD series is one of my top favorite series and always will be. I can't wait for the first DARK WARRIORS book, "Midnight's Master" to be released (which BTW is on May 22) to see the new journey Donna has sent these amazing warriors on.
I give DARKEST HIGHLANDER 5 out of 5 stars
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. She had no idea her sister even knew Broc until Anice was killed and she saw how Broc reacted. Thinking her magic has deserted her and feeling useless to the others in the castle, feeling betrayed by Broc and Anice, she takes her pity party on the road making Broc hunt her down. They both end of captured by Deirdre, escape, and go on the hunt for the next missing artifact to thwart Deirdre's evil plans.
Romance wasn't really there. There was a lot of lust ridden angst in Broc's and Sonya's internal dialogue but I never felt there was any love. There was no foundation for it to build upon and the thing with Anice was just swept into the background as if it never happened. That lack of resolution made the feelings between Broc and Sonya appear even more superficial - desperation built upon circumstance and danger - not love. They knew almost nothing about each other.
This series is now moving into the future. When Deirdre is pulled four centuries into the future by a strong, foreign magic, Logan, Ramsey, Camdyn and Arran decide to follow. Past, present, or future this series is over for me and if you've read any of the previous books - then you've read this one.
