This was definitely my least favorite books in the series so far. Especially since they keep stressing how the Fae are aliens without a soul and it's their understanding of advance technology that allows them to do what they do.

Puck is one of my favorite fairy-tale characters of all time and I can't say that I care for the author's version of him. Adam Black may be hot, but that's until he opens his mouth. Some of the things he says while trying to seduce Gabby are just so corny that I wanted to gag and found myself rolling my eyes repeatedly. And, call me crazy, but I don't find getting gifts of items stolen from department stores and jewelers to be romantic.

After reading this book, I'm also wondering if the author will ever have a lead heroine that doesn't start out as a virgin while the guy was a raving man-slut before meeting her.

The author is also getting redundant in her anti-climatic closings of her books. (I've just read up to this book in the series within a couple of weeks, so I've been over-exposed to her plots.) They're the kind of endings where the hero is separated from the heroine and then she goes into mope-mode after his disappearance because she's so grief-stricken. And then they get back together and it's all hunky-dory.

Needless to say, I was disappointed in her ruination of one of my favorite Fae characters at the end of this one. It's like declawing a kitty.

Immortal Adam Black is cursed by the Faery Queen who strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible. The only person who can see him is Gabrielle O'Callaghan. Gabby is able to see both the mortal and faery worlds. She's also been raised to never trust the faeries. Helping Adam Black regain his immortality and stop the conspiracy that threatens the queen may just get her killed.

I've been wanting to read Adam Black's story ever since reading the first Highlander book. It didn't disappoint. The book has some very funny scenes and a great ending. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Adam Black, prince of the Tuatha Dé Danaan, that's fairies to most of us, has been stripped of his immortality and power by his queen and left to live as a mortal. She has also cursed him with the féth fiada, which means that no one can see him, hear him, or feel him. This is definitely not the life that a 6000 year old immortal expects.

Gabrielle O'Callaghan is a Sidhe seer from a long line of the same. That has not been a good thing as the fairy tend to carry off all that can see them. So Gabrielle has been taught to never betray the fact that she can see the Sidhe, as well as to hate and fear them.

When Adam finds Gabrielle and realizes that she can see him, he is elated. He now has someone to aid him as he works break the curse and return to immortal life and power. And it is a bonus that the Sidhe seer is such a tempting morsel. The only problem is that Gabrielle is not willing to help, but that shouldn't be hard to over come. After all, he has seduced innumerable women in his 6000 years.

Gabrielle is doing her best to send this unwanted person on his way, but it is not going well. For instance, when she talks to him, her friends think she is talking to the air, since they can't see him. And the fact that he is 6 feet 6 inches of rippling muscles, golden skin and long black hair is pretty distracting, too.

This is the sixth book in Karen Monings Highlander series and it is probably better to read these books in the order they are written, as actions and characters from other books come into this one.

It is a lovely romance with interesting characters and truly unique problem for the lovers. After all an immortal fairy and a normal young woman have a few issues to deal with, when they fall in love.

Adam Black the blackest of fae fairies! Oh yeah! A real fairy tale that has its Happily-Ever-After!
I LOVE Moning's Highlander series!!! You don't have to read them in order but I would recommend it and I enjoyed it better that way. Everyone/everything ties in better together.
You won't be disappointed in this book or her others.

Adam Black, sensual immortal has women in all centuries falling into his bed. He is cursed by the Fae Queen to live invisibly as a mortal with almost no powers. Gabrielle O'Callahan can see faery, but fears she will be killed if they discover she can. When Adam realizes she sees him, he enlists her help to let his Queen know she is in danger from a fae council member who wishes harm to her and the mortal world. Adam's seduction attempts Gabby manages to avoid especially when she realizes he is using her to regain his immortality. The way this book ends is so wonderful. Great writing is very hard to put down.

This is only the third book I have read by Moning and I have to agree that she does do the same thing over and over again. But since this is only my third time, I am not quite sick of it yet. I'm sure if I read the series in order and this is my sixth book of the same thing I wouldn't like it either.

That being said, it was just such a fun book. Adam (aka Puck) was just so silly and had the worse pick-up lines. I'm pretty sure that was on purpose and I couldn't help but laugh at him. I enjoyed Gabby. She had a lot spirit and was such a survivor. I also love that she beat him senseless all the time.

The side characters were great. It didn't matter that I haven't read Chloe and Gwen's stories, Moning gave enough background information to have everything make sense.

It's pretty lighthearted, cheesy but a great fun read.

I have to say that the last book in the Highlander series went a little too far but I have always thought that Karen Marie Moning was a good read
