I am a reader and a Librarian--Personally I find all of Karen Marie Monings books an escape that I look forward to reading. I fly through each book only wishing it wouldn't end. Her books have a balance of plot, character development, adventure, action, and sex to keep you interested and wanting more. Excellent!
I really liked this one, it was a change of view for me, and I was instantly entertained by the reader and stroy line; a bit long in the beginning but story kept me listening.
please.....make us come to happiness.....write more stories....ther are far too many of us who cant find this man
This is the second Moning book I've tried and I've decided her stories just aren't for me.
The characters take forever to make a decision -- one you KNOW their going to make. The back story seems to be late in adding to the mix -- and that's the only fun part of the book.
The narrator's female voices had the same affect as fingernails on a blackboard. They were all high pitched, whiney, shrill, near hysterical and well, just annoying.
I love stories about Highlanders but not the Moning /Gigante style.
Audio Addict! Usually listening to History these days. Love Will Durant most of all authors!
Along with Beyond Highland Mist and Immortal Highlander, this is one of the best of the series. Grim is a great hero and the love story is very rewarding.
I wish I hadn't bought two of these because I just can't get by the first couple hours of the first one. The writing is hackneyed, overblown, and repetitive. Some of the language seems too modern to be from an era as long ago as this supposedly was. The characters do not engage the reader/listener enough to care what happens to them or in the story. I found myself drifting away and when I started listening again found I hadn't missed anything. Not a good sign! The narrator did his best with this unengaging story, but his attempt at a Scottish accent fell short of anything I've heard in all the parts of Scotland I've visited. Suggestion to Audible--use British readers for books set in the British Isles--please.
On a positive note, this is the first of many books I've purchased from Audible that I have not enjoyed a great deal.
I'm new to this genre and I really enjoy this series of books. The artist has a wonderful voice. While I was a bit unnerved at first, I've come to really enjoy his vocal depth.
I liked the first book in this series, but this one was painful to listen to because of the story. It had great potential with the general idea, but the execution was lame. The narrator was good, he just didn't have adequate material to work with.
I am never disappointed with any of KMM's work! Story great, amazing characters! This book will capture your attention and keep it!
