Highlander: The Source

I was so excited to hear about this!
The Highlander: The Source Official Site gives a glimpse of the upcoming movie:

The world is falling into chaos. As he roams a crumbling city, Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul), the Highlander, remembers happier times before the love of his life left… Hopeless and alone, MacLeod finds his way to a band of immortal companions, including his mysterious friend Methos, and a mortal, Watcher Joe Dawson. Together this small group sets out on a quest to find the origin of the first Immortal and The Source of their immortality.

This will be the first in a Highlander trilogy.

The first trailer can be seen below:

Rogue Angel: The Chosen

Rogue Angel: The Chosen, by “Alex Archer” (supposedly, Victor Milan, this month) was another exciting installment. The Chosen certainly didn’t lack for action. There was plenty of fighting and swordplay.

Creed is a part-time archeologist, part-time host of a tv show called Chasing History’s Monsters, and full-time adventurer.

This is the forth book in the Rogue Angel series. This time, Annja goes in search of a mystery surrounding the Santo Nino (Holy Child) sightings, in New Mexico. While on a dig, Annja herself, sees an eerie beast with red eyes that sends her on the quest to seek out an explanation for these strange sightings. Along her journey, she encounters a dangerous and lethal Jesuit priest. But is he a friend or foe?

With plenty of action and suspense, these books are quickly becoming a staple in my library. I read them as soon as I get them. And eHarlequin always releases them a month early!

Two Trailers (updated)

I saw The Good Shepherd and Night at the Museum this weekend. Both were disappointing and not worth reviewing. At least Night at the Museum was cute and funny, though a little too stupid. The Good Shepherd was way too long and boring. I thought it’d be suspenseful and action-packed. Instead, it was a depressing drama.

And there was no Fantastic Four 2 trailer before Night at the Museum, as was advertised. But it’s online now. It looks very cool, and I now have high hopes for this second installment! I’ll imbed it in this message, so you don’t have to go searching:
