What's the Story?:
From Goodreads.com: "An unclaimed land in the
Scottish isles is ruled by the male and female victors in a series of
war games every five years. Named Chief and Lady of the land, they rule
the vast holding, and protect the people by divine right, until the next
After her brother’s death Ceana is named laird.
The only way for her clan to survive the ravages of the Highlands is to
join in the war games. Bastard son of a powerful earl, Macrath is placed
in the games by his vengeful stepmother. He must survive for the
Ceana can’t stand the arrogant Highlander
who seems to be following her, and yet she can’t seem to walk away.
Macrath wants nothing more than to be rid of the troublesome need to
protect the warrior lass. What starts out as a race to survive turns
into passion to endure together.
May the gods be forever in their favor…"
My Two Cents:
"Highland Hunger" kicks off a brand new series from author Eliza Knight. In this book (which takes place in lovely Scotland - yay!), Ceana's world has been turned upside down. She is now fighting for her title as "Laird" after her brother dies and it is up to her to enter the war games to defend her clan (a tall order for a woman in this world). Of course, there is a romance to be had between Ceana and Macrath, a highlander who is also in the war games. If you've read any of Knight's books before, you know that it is the area of romance where she really shines!
Ceana and Macrath are an awesome couple. You have Ceana, who is a very no-nonsense women bound by duty to her clan. She knows what she has to do and is not afraid to jump in with both feet in order to get it done even though the stakes are high. And Macrath (oh, Macrath, who I have a little bit of a literary crush on) is a wonderful counterpart to Ceana. He is strong and brave and I can see exactly why Ceana finds him so absolutely irresistible! Their chemistry definitely jumped off the page for me and I loved reading about how their relationship changed throughout the book! I can't wait to see what is in store for them in the coming books!
I have been very excited for this series to come out and I was most definitely not disappointed. This is an exciting new series that will be a treat for those who love highlanders like I do! This book was definitely a promising start!
