It's taken him eleven centuries to find the right woman. He's not about to lose her now.

Jessi St. James has GOT to get a life. Too many hours studying ancient artifacts has given the archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the glass of an ancient mirror. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six and a half feet of smoldering INSATIABLE alpha male.

Heir to the arcane magic of his Druid ancestors, Cian MacKeltar was trapped inside the Dark Glass eleven centuries ago. And when the Dark Glass is stolen, an ancient enemy will stop at nothing to reclaim it. For Jessi, the sex god in the mirror is not only tantalisingly real, he's offering his protection—from exactly what, Jessi doesn't know. And all he wants in exchange is the exquisite pleasure of sharing her bed....

I’m in a slump, y’all.

Nothing that I’ve picked up has been able to catch and keep my attention for longer than fifteen minutes and it really sucks but, I did pick this book up last week and was sifting through it, hoping that this book would bring me out of my reading funk.

A Karen Marie Moning is a good choice to kick off a reading slump because I was instantly wrapped right up in Cian and Jessi’s world. I was loving the whole mirror business and the whole paranormal aspect of the story, the magic, the good versus evil business and really, the biggest thing for me was the Dageus MacKeltar business.

I was all over that mug in this book, again.

This whole book was really good for me, from the total alphaness of Cian and his “voice” that works on EVERYONE but Jessi, I loved the whole getting to Scotland thing and just the bond that formed between Cian and Jessi. This book seriously had it all, sexy heroes, steamy plotline and out of this world characters that just heated up page after delicious page.

The scene where Dageus takes off with the mirror and Cian is ripping into him because he left Jessi vulnerable and just that whole scene was one great big AWWWWWW scene for me because you could see just how stubborn Cian was and you could tell how much Jessi had come to mean to him and it was just a fantabulous scene.

This whole book was one great big roller coaster for me, it had it’s high moments where I was rootin’ Jessi and Cian on and it had it’s moments where I wanted to kick someone because the evil dudes were just so evil but I love the world that KMM has created with the MacKeltar men and I just love the way KMM tells her stories, with lots of feeling, character development and just every damn thing about everything.

By the end of the book, I felt like I knew Cian and Jessi and I was just so hot damn happy they got their happy ending and I was hella loving all the Dageus and Drustan in this book too, gosh I love those twins. And that ending is something else, man I just effing love stuff like this.

This book gets a great big A for me because it was the hot damn bomb diggity with a cherry on top! Read it if you haven’t but first read the others, I skipped all the other books because this one was calling me…

  1. LOL! Me too Isabel!!

    This is my favorite KMM book with Dark Highlander being second.

    I got Beyond the Highland Mist on audio last week. That is KMM’s WORST book IMO and the narrator SUCKED but it’s my understanding that all the books are going to be on audio eventually so I’m excited for that. I love to use them when cleaning or working out!

    Books call to me all the time too, Rowena… It’s hard to read anything else when a book is demanding to be re-read isn’t it?

    Iz,

    Me too! I love Cian period, this guy is the frickin absolute bomb but for me, Dageus has my KMM heart! =)

    Chantal,

    I thought so too! Love love LOVE IT!

    Angela,

    Hey, I don’t think I’ve welcomed you to our blog, I’ve been MIA for so long that I”m meeting a lot of new peeps, but WELCOME and thanks for commenting, I love when books speak to me because it makes for great reading and good times…sexy heroes are the bomb too! haha.

  3. It was my favorite too of the series! I loved the way he was so protective of her and totally Alpha, but not in an assy way. He’s so YUM-O and now I’m in the mood for a re-read as well.

    Unfortunately I borrowed a copy of it when I first read it so NOW I’m gonna have to run out and get one!
