It's nice to read them in order because there are characters that appear in more than one book--Adam Black, for example---but it doesn't necessarily affect your understanding of a story when such a character re-appears. Enough information is given about the character so you know where he fits. (less)

The Immortal Highlander was another 5+ instalment from the Highlander series :) Karen Marie Moning just keeps getting better and better with every book :)

I've read the first one and didn't like it much, but in a way I'm glad because Adam Black first appeared in that one :) Although, I have to say, he was pretty bad in the beginning, I would never have thought he'd get his own book, he was like the bad guy :O But boy am I glad he did <3

Damn, it's good to be Adam Black - sorry, I couldn't resist, LOL - but I bet it's better to be Adam Black's lover!

Adam is one of those heroes you just love to hate - or hate to love, either way works for me. He was selfish, arrogant, manipulative and didn't have any qualms about using anyone and anything to his own advantage. He was also as handome and sexy as one can be, which only helped him to get what he wanted. BUT there was something beneath all that, something that shouldn't be there cons

4 1/2 Stars - Simply wonderful in the very best kind of 'Highlander' style

The Immortal Highlander is a contemporary (slightly) paranormal 'Highlander' romance. I listened to the 10 hrs audiobook excellent narrated by Phil Gigante.

So, I was trying to ease my Fever withdrawal pains by reading one of Moning's Highlander romances. Pretty much had to drop it after 15 minutes of listening to it. I should have known it wouldn't work for me after hearing this, right at the beginning:

Adam Black:

Tuatha De Danaan, a rogue even among his own kind. His favored glamour is that of an intensely sexual Highland blacksmith with a powerful rippling body, golden skin, long black hair, mesmerizing eyes. Highly intelligent, lethally seductive
Huge 5+ stars

Wow! Just Wow! I adore this book. Adore it! By far my favorite of the series.

Adam Black *dreamy sigh* is an immortal dark Fae prince with an abundance of mischievousness, arrogance, dangerous unpredictability, and a devilish insatiable sexuality. He's the ultimate seducer. The story begins with Adam being punished by the Faery Queen (who adores him, of course) for his repeated interference with his "toy" humans. She strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible to all aroun

Adam Black has piqued my curiosity in the previous Highlander books: A larger than life Fae, a Tuatha De, arrogant, sparkly beautiful, seductive, unpredictable, sexual, a player, Queen’s consort. A manipulative, totally dark in soul and his thinking male.
He loves playing with the humans’ lives, plotting and pretending being God.

Gabrielle "Gabby" O’Callaghan is a Sidhe-seer and she has the ability to see both worlds; mortal and faery (once again I wish I had read this series before Fever...).

5 Swoonworthy Stars!! I am Given. My soul is yours Adam Black! Another fantastic installment in this series, this one rounding out not only Adam’s story, but the MacKeltars too!!

Poor Adam is being punished for doing something good, but because of his meddling in the human world, he’s been rendered powerless in his own. The prince is no more; he’s just a mere mortal wandering aimlessly unbeknownst even to his own kind. That is until he crosses paths with Gabrielle O'Callaghan who has a gift, or

Adam Black has been the only constant character through out this series and to be honest although he is drop dead gorgeous (and I would never ever kick him out of bed given the chance) I didn't think I would like his book all too much because he has always been such an arrogant tool.

But *hangs head in shame* I should have had more faith in Karen Marie Moning - she has never disappointed me before.

I can't believe that I had never read a KMM book before I started this series....I must have been on another planet ;)

This was another fantastic addition to the Highlander series. I did drool and swoon over Adam but not quite as much as I did with Drustan & Dageus. I loved meeting up with Drustan & Gwen and Degeus & Chloe again and see how they are getting on.

KMM sure knows how to tell a good story and get us drooling over the sexy men, she even includes strong and fabulous heroines

Adam Black, is part of the Tuatha De Danaan who are an advanced race of immortals. They are also known as Faes or fairies, but Adam is no Tinkerbell. He's arrogant, unpredictable, unbelievably sexy and can seduce anyone that carries the X chromosome.

I am getting tired of giving a rating in between stars - I am giving this one a 2.5 stars, because similar to the Dark Highlander (this book's predecessor in the series), I thought it was more than okay but I didn't feel that I "liked" it all that much.

I was very happy that Adam Black finally got a story of his own. I thought Gabrielle (or Gabby for short) was well-matched for him. In this book, we even got to see more of Drustan & Gwen, Dageus & Chloe (both couples from previous two nov

I'm pretty sick of saying the same thing...EVERY FREAKING ONE OF THESE BOOKS HAVE THE SAME FORMAT. Here's a summary of EVERY FREAKING BOOK IN THIS SERIES:

The heroine: an unsuspecting, blonde, beautiful, petite (except Circenn's wife), 20-something year old virgin has finally made a life for herself from her less than perfect upbringing. She can feel that her life's not perfect and there's something missing in it.

The hero: he's a six and a half foot, beautiful/handsome beyond belief, physically
Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)
Stripped from his Fae powers and forced to live in the human world, Adam Black has never felt so vulnerable in his entire existence. With only the ability to sift in short distances and invisible to all humans and fae alike, his punishment from Aoibheal is one of pure torture. It isn’t until he realizes that only one other person can see him that he has some hope to become the immortal once again.

Gabrielle O’Callaghan is a woman who possesses a rare ability to see both realms: mortal and Faery.

"I'm going to spend some time with a highlander," I announce to my husband as I try to find a quiet place to read in a house with 3 loud boys and a cat...I watch my husband raise his eyebrows, then here comes the eyeroll...but I just don't care. There is something about this series that calls to me.

And I can't tell you why. The books are basically formulaic --

(2)Our hero is gorgeous, sexy, large, and well endowed.

Adam Black, the Fae prince is suffering his punishment under the Fae Queen. He is to be 'human' and mostly powerless until she forgives him. But there is more going on than she or even he knows.
He needs to contact her to plead forgiveness, but he is invisible to humans and the Fae are invisible to him.

3.5 stars. I loved that this book really felt like an extension of the Fever series! Bringing Drustan and and Dageus back and tying Christian's family to Adam was genius! If you only have time to read one Highlander book before the release of Shadowfever, this is the one! There is so much crossover Fever goodness in this one. Although, I'd really say to start at book 4 and get caught up with Drustan and Dageus first before getting to Adam's story if you have the time.

I must be going thru a smut phase, and Karen Marie Moning is a reliable source. Make no mistake, the Highlader does not in any way compare to her Fever series; however, it provides a satisfying read and you can easily delve into the world without having read the other books within the series.

If you can look past the insta-devotion, survival instincts being construed as "fiery passion few possess" and the fact that our hunk has chosen a Highland Blacksmith as his chosen form (random much?), you s

AMAZING!!!!! Adam Black is my #1 KMM man.
I'm not exactly sure why I've been avoiding to write a review for this book. Possibly because it feels so final that I've completed Adam Black's book. Anyway, this is one of those really good books that deserves a sparkling review, so here goes:

The book starts with our very favorite hero, Adam Black. Yes, the Fae who has meddled with countless human lives during the earlier books and is exceedingly arrogant under both Fae and human parameters. Anyway, he's an odd duck among the Fae since he actu

Loved the storyline, the fae references that tie back to the Fever series. Absolutely LOVED Adam Black!

Hands down, my absolute favorite in the series! I'm ending the series here since I don't think anything can top Adam Black!
I was *this* close to being convinced that I should change it to two stars, but then the ending. It slew me. So back to one star, it is.

Adam Black. Nuff said. This book took us all on a brilliant tour of magicke, fairies and love. The cherry-popping galore in Scotland continues, with a rumble and a boom.

Adam Black is finally explained to us. The enigma that he is, is finally out in the open. And I love how he rewrites Gabby's book about him. Brilliance. The end had me in tears screaming my agony.

Now, I would like to know why men all over the world are not walking around with waist-length, silky, black-as-sin hair? Because that

Oh god, so I'm still a little embarrassed about my love of these books since they were my first taste of a romance series. But if I'm being honest with myself, if KMM writes 50 of these, I'll happily devour them and get all giddy at the predictable, soulmate/eternal-love-finally-found conclusion. I keep telling myself it's because these are tie-ins to the fever series, but I think I'm just one of those suckers for a HEA and I can live with that.

“Tell them, Gabrielle,” Adam urged impatiently.
Blinking, Gabby nodded. “I have one of the, er… fairies here with me –”
“Tuatha Dé,” Adam corrected irritably. “You’re bloody well making me sound like Tinkerbell.”
“Holy cow,” Chloe said faintly.
“No kidding,” Gwen breathed.
The sexy Fae prince flashed them a smile that was pure devilish charm, sexy and playful and mischievous, briefly catching the tip of his tongue between white teeth, before his lip curved, dark eyes sparkling gold.
Gabby groaned. She choked on it hastily, camouflaging it with a dry little cough. Her own private stash of eye candy had just been made available for public consumption and she didn’t like it one bit.
Apparently she wasn’t the only one.
“Are you thinking what I’m thinking, Dageus?” Drustan said irritably.
“Och, aye,” Dageus said darkly. “You liked him better invisible too?”
“Och, aye.”
“Should I curse him again?”
“Och, aye.”
Adam threw back his head and laughed, eyes sparkling with gold fire. “Bloody hell, it’s good to be back,” he purred.”
