“Soul of the Highlander" is the 3rd book in Melissa Mayhue’s Daughters of the Glen series. I am really enjoying this series, and this book just continues the fun.
Mairi MacKiernan's life already changed dramatically when she was saved from death and pulled forward in time with her brother, Connor. She's adjusted to modern life, but she has a strong need to fix what happen in the past, and to save her cousin Marsali. Mairi confronts Pol and gains permission to travel back to the past to right a wrong. Mairi needs to get past her almost rape and murder that occurred before she was brought to the future, she needs to get back her spirit and fire
Ramos Servans, now a Fae Guardian, wants to repair the damage done by his evil father, Reynard. He is given the task to go back in time to help rescue or assist Mairi in her quest. Ramos needs to get past the things he did for his father, not knowing that he was a bad guy. Ramos is a good man, and everyone but him sees that.
Both Ramos and Mairi were a great couple. As much as I liked Connor and Ian from the first two books, I knew once I found out this book belonged to Ramos, that I would love him the best. I really enjoyed him in Highland Guardian, with his friendship to Sarah. But totally fell in love with him in ‘Soul of a Highlander’. I was surprised that Mairi turned out to be such a great heroine
This book was excellent throughout, with very little boring moments. Very exciting all through, and Reynard Servans made a very good villain, even if I dislike him so much. What I loved mostly about the book, was meeting Rosalyn again, and her family. At first I couldn’t take Marsali, but ended up really liking Sallie. lol She was one tough young girl at the end. I would have loved to see a storyline for her, but I doubt that will happen, as she ends up married to Ran.
The parts with Pol, I love, as I really like him, and hope he continues to be part of the other stories. It was also great at the end to see the children, Will and Rose again; as well as seeing Cate, Connor, Ian, Sarah. Mayhue continues to make you fall in love with her couples, as she did once again with Ramos and Mairi. She also is very good with creating excellent secondary characters, and my guess is many of those will be future books, therefore allowing us to go back and forth in time, with Rosalyn’s family and the current time families (Cate/Connor, Ramos/Mairi, Ian/Sarah) or in the far future books (hopefully this series will continue on and on?) for Will and Rose.
Loved this book, very relaxing and enjoyable read. However, that being said, I ended up with a question near the end. I love Dallyn, are they trying to tell us he is Wyn Servans? Though Wyn wasn’t totally bad, I can’t see him being Dallyn, since how would he have been able to go to the realm, which isn’t probable, as he was Naudian. And the mystery that Pol wants to discuss with Dallyn about the mistake of his with Mairi (mortal women having fae power). Oh well, we shall see. I am totally addicted. Next is Highlander of her Own.
