…what are your thoughts on where SK took Kieran’s character?
It’s been a while since I’ve read these books but one of the running factors that kept me reading these books was I had to find out for myself if Kieran, the brother who is reported to have ended his life after a dispute with his brother Ewan over a woman, really did die. Kieran hasn’t been around since the day that him and Ewan got into it and his plaid was found ripped and bloodied with no Kieran anywhere to be found.
Over the course of the books, we find out little snippets of information about the “Scot” who we thought could maybe be Kieran but we were never sure. Then there was the addition of Kieran’s son who came into the picture and the whereabouts of Kieran only got worst.
I’m not quite done with my read of The Warrior yet but I just had to spoil myself a little bit. I found this on SK’s site concerning Kieran:
Q: Is Kieran MacAllister a Dark-Hunter? And will you put him in a Dark-Hunter book? (Spoiler contained in the answer)
A: Not as easy to answer. I knew when I started the series that Kieran wasn’t alive. But when I wrote the Warrior, I couldn’t bring myself to end the book with him dead. So I cheated a bit and yes, he’s technically a Dark-Hunter.
Will he make an appearance in that series? Depends on my publishers. Since there are two different houses who publish the series, I have to get their permission to blur those lines.
So…what do you guys think? He’s a Dark Hunter. Do you think we’ll ever get his book? Do you guys want his book? What did you guys think of SK making Kieran a Dark Hunter? Were you guys disappointed? Elated? What?
