Into the Dreaming (Highlander, #8) by Karen Marie Moning


Aspiring romance novelist Jane Sillee was completely in love with her fantasy man—the hot and strapping dark-haired Highlander who’d been coming to her in her dreams for years and inspired her sensual flights of literary fancy.

But is was more than her imagination that conjured up the brilliantly woven tapestry sporting the spitting image of her magnificently arrogant warrior. It was more than than a dream that transported her to medieval Scotland to break an evil spell. And it was more than she could handle when she found herself wrapped in the muscular arms of Aedan MacKinnon, who had his own fantasies to fulfill…

This book was a re-read for me.  I love Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander series and this was the last one published.  It was released in 2006, so I guess there are no plans for another one.  Anyway, she has another series called Fever.  I thought it was a spin off of the Highlanders and wanted to refresh my memory of the book.  It turns out that they have nothing to do with each other.

Into the Dreaming is actually a novella with only 112 pages.  It is amazing the emotion she can pack into such a short book.  All the things Aedan lived through at the hands of the Unseelie king were heartbreaking.

I did feel that there was room for another story.  There were enough references to his family that I felt like the plot was leading up to something that never came to pass.

I did not particularly care for the ending with the Seelie queen and Unseelie king, but it was not totally unforeseen.

Anyone else catch the play on Jane’s last name?
