Great start.

Nevin was a highlander her was turned into a vampire by a woman. We don't find out anything about her but he is seen as her pet. He saves an innocent girl and takes her home but is not welcome. This is a prequel to the Nightkind series it's a quick look at Nevins life.

This was a great read, couldn't put it down. The story line kept my interest from beginning to end. It was a different take on the usual Vampire book, but I enjoyed it very much. I would advise anyone want a good short story to get this novella.
I have never read any of Laura Hunsakers work before, but this want be my last.
The Broken Highlander

Reading this short story I found out that Highlanders and vampires are not a great match for me. It felt too weird. I didn't connect with Nevin. Not much happens in this short story. I will stay with the real highlander man not the one that turns into a vampire.

Great world building with this short novella- it leaves you wanting more and thankfully in the back of the ebook there is a short chapter with just a bit more to fill in some of the blanks. The Highlander is definitely one tough warrior.
