The Captive Soul, written by Josepha Sherman, is the eighth Highlander novel. It focuses on Methos, not Duncan.

Immortal Methos had been a spy for the pharaohs inside the Hyksos royal house in Ancient Egypt. He meets and misses his chance to take the Immortal Prince Khyan's head.

The Prince is evil to the core and when he returns to modern New York to find his lost sword... he is killing all in his path.

A fun little Highlander tie in novel that focuses on the character of Methos. The story mostly takes place in ancient Egypt and is a really fun setting. A guilty pleasure.
