Review of Highlander's Destiny by Melissa Mayhue

Read for Mount TBR & Series Challenge
Synopsis: "JESSE CORYELL, a descendant of the Fae, is a man in search of his destiny. He's tried to lose himself in his work, taking on the worst mankind has to offer, but what he really needs to find is his true love. When he sets out to help a mysterious woman find her sister, what he gets is much more than he bargained for: battling an undeniable attraction to his sexy new client while fighting an ancient evil to keep her safe.

DESTINY NOBLE, abandoned by everyone she's ever loved, will stop at nothing in her desperate quest to find her sister. Authorities have declared Leah a runaway, but Destiny knows better. Her dream visions have shown her the frightening truth. They've also shown her Jesse. But finding her Soulmate could result in the most painful loss of all, when she's forced to choose between loving Jesse and saving Leah.

Jesse and Destiny race against time to save an innocent girl from a powerful ancient evil. Is true love their best weapon...or will they be required to sacrifice their own destiny?"

My Review: This really wasn't a favorite of mine in the series. It stuck with the fantasy element much more in this book, and got a little darker than I would have liked for the series. I also really loved Jesse in the first book and couldn't wait to read his book, but felt a little let down in this book. We didn't get to know much of Jesse or really see too much of him, it mostly followed Destiny. As far as she goes, I think this is why this book turned me off a little more, she was so weak, unappealing, and stubborn in the wrong ways. It was really just an eh for me in this series that has been full of ups and downs, I have hopes that the next book will be a big up.
My Rating: I guess anytime you read a longer series with so many characters you are bound to find one character or a whole book that just doesn't suit you, this was it for me. Not that it was horrible, it just didn't stand up to the rest of the series. I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. Yeah, I've discovered the longer the series the more books you find that are only so so for you.

    1. This series has definitely been a little up and down for me, a little too all over the place.
