Karen Marie Moning – Highlander Series Reading Order:

in Karen Marie Moning, Reading Order Guide:

Ok, so….am I about to trade in my sexy vampires for some intense and breathtaking highlanders? WOW!! On a whim I read the first book in this series this past weekend, and was completely hooked! And now I need the reading order to continue (cause I just can’t stop thinking about the first book —> I HEART Hawk and I need more).

So while I gather my info, I thought I’d publish it for your use, too ;) This definitely counts as paranormal cause there’s time travel, and those pesky fae (and well of course, it kinda “mingles” with the author’s “Fever” series that I love)

The author states:

I’ve been told by readers that the first five stand alone, however I believe the reading experience is richer if read in this order:

Hmmmmm! the last time I took a recommendation from you on Karen Marie Moning,,,I was floored! and still in suspense,,LOL Im not sure if I can handle it! We all caught the fever last time is there such a thing as Highlanderism? lol (not really) It well definately be put in my TBA list..

Lily August 10, 2010 at 12:57 PM

hahaha “Highlanderism”! Maryse we HAVE to use that term! I picked up book two today – I love it when we read together – btw get the Downside Series like yesterday – Terrible is WONDERFUL and there is sorta a HEA at the end of 3 to tide us till 2011…..

Maryse August 10, 2010 at 1:06 PM

LOL! You guys are hilarious! I am already addicted to these highlanders. Yes, consider me afflicted with “Highlanderism”. Good one Jen!

I’m on book 2. Ahhhh Grimm…I heart you, too. I’m only a quarter of the way thorugh it, and there are THREE!!! COUNT ‘em…THREE “love interests” in this one – and they are ALL so yummy! And this time – despite the “heroine” being bratty and resistant, Grimm is ALSO just as resistant and actually quite mean…sorta ;) Oh I love the tension already.

Yah and Lily, I MUST get started on Stacia’s series…but how am I to desert these highlanders so soon in our journey together? Ok so get started on book #2 tonight and we will be matched up pretty well for “reading together” I’m sure. It’s not Adam’s book, it’s Grimm’s!!

So I know your busy with the Highlanders,,but I just wanted to share a few series that I found,,Fantasicfiction.com is one of my favorite websites next to yours of coarse, thats where i have found alot of authors that arent mentioned on yours anyway,,Cheyenne McCray has a series I thought you might like to check out..The Magick Series. 1. Forbidden Magick (ive read that 1 has to do more with witches, not any vampires but does have a few groteque demons and evil warlocksand some fine warriors called D’Dannon) 2. Seduced by Magic 3. Wicked Magic 4. Shadow Magic and 5. Dark Magic..
Ive only read the first one,,WARNING!!!! um um how do i put this,,,The Love Scenes? well,,,there not real friendly,,I didnt see it very romantic,,but the story line is interesting enough basic demons and warlocks wanting to take over the world and sweet little innocent witches that are doing what they need to do to save it..You might like it..

I noticed that you do not have Lynn Kurland on your list. If you like Karen Marie Moning, I think you would like Lynn. She also has the time traveling highlanders in it and I have to say I really enjoyed them. There are 2 family groups that overlap to some extent. The MacLeods and the DePiagets. Try the first one and if you don”t like it don”t read any more. The first book in the De Piaget series is Another Chance to Dream and the first in Macleod series is A Dance Through Time. These books are older and are not as hot as the newer ones but an enjoyable and relaxing read.

there is an older series of vampires by linda lael miller that was the first vampire series I read. Forever and the night was the first book,then For all eternity,Time without end, followed by Tonight and always. Very well worth the read. I love the series

If you like the highlander series by moning then you would love the outlander series by diania gabaldon. They are much better written and same characters in the series. I love highlanders!!! If anyone knows any good highlander books please e mail me thanks

I love love love the Highlander series. I just finished reading all of them for the third time. Love the Fever series.

Karen June 4, 2013 at 2:41 AM

There is certainly such a thing as Highlanderism.
I just bought this series and am yet to start them (maybe this weekend) but let me tell you about the series by Diana Gabaldon. The Outlander series is to say the least awesome. I also loved A knight in shining armour by Jude Deveraux. Another good series.

Sandra Hill author of ” Viking Unchained ” is what got me hooked. After reading a few of her Viking books (So far there all connected in some way. I love them. She’s an awesome writer.) I came across Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander Series and fell in love. I just bought all of the books and I am going to reread all of them in order this time. Monica McCarthy is another wonderful author. ” The Chief ” is part of her Highland Guard Series. I haven’t read all of them yet. But I have firm plans on doing so.

If you are looking for another great highland storie

try Catherine Bybee’s macconnich series each one sucks you in farther.

How about “The Last Highlander” by Claire Cross. Involves time travel only to the future. I randomly picked it up to take with me on out trip to Scotland, and Hey! it’s about a group of highlanders who take over Edinbugh castle, which we visited, and falls into the future. Also, “Highlander Unchained”, “Highlander Untamed” and “Highlander Unmasked” all by Monica McCarty. Has anyone read any of the Sherrilyn Kenyon books the Dark-Hunter novels? Or is this a pseudonym for Monica McCarty? Quite confusing. I have also read most or all of the Viking series, and really into the history channel’s tv series, “Vikings” starring Travis Fimmel, now through the third season..
Getting into this conversation a bit late, as is is now May 2015

Also, for the most part, have enjoyed the Starz tv series “Outlander”, and have read most of Gabaldon’s books. However, the second half, has been a bit disappointing, especially, one episode, which was so totally not in the first book. Guess they’re rushing a bit to fit it all into the first season, as they are trying to do one book per season. Her books are quite long and detailed, so I guess they have to push it.

Just wondering in Spell Of The Highlander at the end there are sill two more chosen to help the queen does any one know about that

Aimee January 6, 2016 at 4:04 AM

I had just recently come across Highlander I was looking up kmms other book titles and found a whole series of books I had no idea about. Highlander what is phenomenal the characters are so full of life. Did not think I would ever find books that top the fever series, but Highland delivers in every sense of the word. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the Highlander series I can’t wait.

Try Julie Garwood ,the bride,the wedding,the secret,ransom,the sound of music there all about highlander,I’ve read them many times
