A Scottish clan warrior from the 16th century, he was taught the deadly arts by an ancient mentor, who then suffered the only wound that can end an Immortal’s life: The novel includes the deleted WW2 scene of Highlanedr rescuing Rachel from the Nazis, as well as the full version of the church scene, as opposed to the edited US version of that scene.
It also gives a more complicated wild ride than the final version in the film. As mentioned earlier, the author has to stick to the source material as closely as possible, or you may get a dissatisfied reader. After reviving the next day and sees that his wound has healed, he calls out to Kate who runs from him. But he instead gets her a taxi. How did they know about the prize?

Highlander (Highlander, book 2) by Garry Douglas
But Conner feels complete for the first time in his life. How could I not love it The scene then shifts to Heather and Ramirez sitting and having wine while he tells her about his highalnder and adventures like in the film.
Father Rainey seems confused… unable to explain how a man with a mortal wound can be healed.
Diana rated it liked it Nov 25, In garr my nerd friends are selfish and opinionated. I’m a big fan of this movie, despite its many flaws, because it’s a clever story and tries to make highlaner impact with its visual style.
I love the movie after all! He then tells heather that she would like Brenda, she is much like you. He finally called her a bloated warthog which upset her leading her to run to her husband and told him of the insult. Mar 10, Brandon Bundy rated it liked it.
