    This is great. Morning doesn't keep the angst going too long like she does in fever. This is a fantastic story. Already having read Fever series, I am thrilled by the mention of the Fae, and the King! And Adam...
    Wishing on a star for Hawk. Take me to 16th century any day, I'm from new Orleans!

    :) love this book. Not disappointed. I can see why fans who read these first would have trouble getting used to Fever. But we all get addicted in the end....

    I' was so addicted to JZB from Fever, I had last book depression... Highlander has made me forget the dear beast, and I'm all about a man in a kilt!!!

    As for anyone writing bad things on the narrator, I do not understand! Phil Gigante is the voice of gods. He is so shockingly good in last two fever books, I am sorry he didn't read it all.
    This is his first romance novel. Give him a chance!! This man is Jericho Barrons for godsake. ;)

    Story

    I have now officially read all of Karen Moning's Highlander books. And you can forget about the queen of the Seelie realm, KMM is the Queen of these highlanders!

    I've loved Scottish Highland novels since I read The Bride, by Julie Garwood. I considered her the "go-to" author of highlander novels. Many authors pen Scottish romance novels. I recently read a review of such a novel that said, "Highlander novels: if you've read one, you've read them all." Well, that is certainly NOT true of Karen Moning's series.

    Every book in this series is filled with fantasy, true love, and the hottest highlanders in the genre. This series has surprised me with fresh and new storylines that had me swearing each book was better than the last. Just when I think she can't possibly top her previous book, she blows me away with a uniquely beautiful, sexy and engrossing story.

    This is the last of the full-length books in this series. It involves a 9th century legendary Celtic Druid, Cian Mackellan who is stuck in a spell that has imprisoned him in a magic mirror for 11 centuries. Tricked by a dark sorcerer, Cian convinces a beautiful graduate student, Jessica St. James, to help him get free of the mirror. He wants vengeance on the powerful sorcerer who bespelled him. With the Jessica's help, Cian revisits his land in the highlands to exact his revenge in the lands that he grew up on. Jessica and Cian have an instant strong attraction, and along the way they're feelings grow.

    But can a man stuck alone for 11 centuries really fall in love? And is his need for vengeance stronger than the bond theyve forged in the short time they have together?

    Filled with extraordinary twists and turns, a cast of your favorite characters from past books, this story has the passion, intrigue, and even a bit of dark magic, making it a positively fascinating page-turner which I finished in one sitting.

    Narrated by the great Phil Gigante, I have nothing but praise for this magical story of good, evil, love, honor, sacrifice and family.

    Highly recommended!

    Jessi St. James has got to get a life. Too many hours studying ancient artifacts has given the hardworking archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the glass of an ancient mirror. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six-and-a-half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male.

  • "Response to Negative reviews re: R..."

    Story

    This IS NOT A SMUTTY ROMANCE BOOK. By any reasonable standards! But Ive been Shocked to see the neg reviews calling this incredibly famous novel just that.

    *****A tip for the prude or those who aren't interested in love stories: read the description before you get the book. If you can't stand any mention of sexuality, or cant understand and appreciate the story of two lovers amidst tragedy of war and time, don't purchase a 32-hour, time-travel, Scottish romance novel.

    Considering all the positive reviews, I rated this book, but never wrote a review bc it was all said already. This is a beloved novel, and it is also a beautiful work of literature that will stand the test of time. I am obviously not the only one to think that.

    The reason I write this review is in response to the readers who call this a silly romance, a piece of smut, or overly and offensly sexual. Oh my God! I can't imagine anyone thinking there was too much sex or graphic sex in this book. Moreover, I was annoyed for the first 15 hours that there wasn't more love and romance. This author writes the few love scenes with grace and tenderness, choosing precise words that are not offensive in the least. The few major intimacy scenes are brilliant, in fact. Diana Galdaldon was able to convey the intensity of the moment without resorting to brash language.

    I wanted More time for the lovers to talk and get to know each other, mentally and physically. Thus I gave the story 4 stars instead of 5. But I still gave the overall a 5, because it was excellent.

    It actually both angers and scares me that anyone is so sexually repressed that they think this PG novel is too sexy or smutty. Of all the fantasy novels I've read, excluding Harry Potter :), and of all the romance novels I've read, the sexuality is mild, to put it lightly. There are some wonderful scenes, and they are needed and important as part of the story. But as I said, these are written with precision to avoid offensive language.

    So to anyone who fits the uptight mold I describe- start looking for your fantasy books in the kids section.

    Story

    This is a really nice continuation of this series. When the author does a good job, the first in the series becomes my favorite in said series because it's the introduction to a brand new world. It isn't often for me that the second in the series is better than the first. This is one of those rare cases. The story was interesting though I missed Marcus since he didn't play as big of a role in this one. Hvam does a great job with voices. It's amazing how so many voices come from one woman.

    Story

    First Donovan Caine has a crappy attitude, and now Owen goes from awesome to whiny and emo?? I understood his defense of Salina in the beginning of the book but by the end after hearing and witnessing all of her craziness I don't know what his problem is. Also, Gin's total acceptance and inability to stand up for herself drives me nuts. She's supposed to be this tough, strong woman but she turns into an absolute basket case with the men she sleeps with?? The storyline, excluding Owen is a good one. I hope to see more of Cooper and more of Phillip in the future. Fortgang does her usual great job on the women's voices.

    Story

    I'm not familiar with the Fables comic. I had listened to Ready Player One and liked Wil Wheaton's narration and bought this in part of the narrator and part because the story sounded interesting. It's a pretty good story, I'm a sucker for any fable or mythological storyline. Wheaton did a pretty good job. I read some complaints about some of his voices, but there are a lot of characters in this book and he does a pretty good job of keeping them from sounding alike. The one negative thing I will say is that I didn't like how the story bounced from Peter's past to Peter's present and Max's past to Max's present. I don't think that it could be written any other way but it was like watching a tennis game in fast forward.

    Story

    When this book came out the reviews were good, but it was because Jim Dale narrated it that made me buy it. I bought it and let it "sit" until now. I'm not a huge fan of period books, that's my only excuse for why I let it sit for so long (Diana Gabaldon being the exception). I'm kicking myself for not listening to it until now. It is awesome! It's very well written. Morgenstern does such an amazing job of describing everything in such a way that it is not tedious and also makes you feel like you're there. At times I swear I could smell popcorn and caramel. I didn't catch on that it was going back and forth in time right away, but I caught on fairly quickly. The narration only makes the book that much more amazing, as I think Jim Dale would be magic reading the yellow pages. An excellent book.

    Well Kresley Cole does it again! Another thrilling, sexy, fun, romantic adventure and one outstanding sequel. I never thought the 2nd book would ever come close to Poison Princess but much like her IAD series they just keep getting better and better. This story has so many twists and turns and “I didn’t see that coming” moments. I was literally on the edge of my seat for the entire listen.

    The world building, character development and plot twists are pure genius. Nothing feels contrived or forced just to move the plot along. Endless Knight has a lot more action and is a little darker than the first book. The Arcana are starting to form alliances as battle lines are drawn in a fight to the death. Throw in some bagmen, militia and cannibals and you have a non-stop, thrilling adventure.

    Definitely a 5 star listen!

    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.
