It's me again folks
Susan Cross has written a great Highlander/Sentinel Crossover series called Circle of the Chosen
It has all the Highlander regulars- Duncan, Methos, Joe,Amanda and deals very cleverly with the Richie dead or not conundrum.
It has a Blair who becomes a Shaman, and an uptight Jim who gets to morph into his panther spirit.
It has a 'the world is doomed if we cant defeat this ultimate evil demon- plot.
It has Kronos and the rest of the Horsemen, dead but back again. It has kidnappings, rescues, assaults, attacks, alarums and excursions.
And, oh yeah, plenty of S-E-X between a Methos (who gets plenty of abuse, time out as a sex slave, and is sarcastic and neurotic) and a masterful, controlling Duncan. Theres an OMC who is an ancient immortal who looks about 15 (Yup) and has special powers and a SECRET.
Its a very ,very good series and well worth a read.
Why then only 6 1/2 out of 10? Well, it would have got 9 but for a flaw which cramped my enjoyment a tad.
The only major black character in it is a tad... stereotypical.
A huge,brutish, ugly,frighteneing rapist etc etc.
I kid you not.
Now, there's explanations as to why he's like that, and he's also got heroic aspects, and he's crucial to the plot, blah blah blah, and he does change somewhat, but PLEASE! This is the 21st century- sheesh!
It almost made me stop reading, but this is a great series and apart from that caveat, I can reccommend it.
Plenty of cliffhangers.
