Absolutely loved this book! Loved the way Karen Marie Moning can so accurately discribes the emotions each character is feeling.and the way narrator Phil Gigante makes me feel the emotions too. I can't wait to read the rest of the series, it is fantastic!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I have read all of Karen Marie Moning's books and I love them all, especially the Highlander series. As they have come on sale I have picked them up and now I own them all on audiobook. I am relistening to them again periodically . My favorites are The Highlander's Kiss and Spell of a Highlander but I like them all really well. The narrator is super sexy especially his highland accent, but admittedly not the greatest female voices.
Take some time travel .... add some highland romance with some fae magic and let Karen Marie Moning turn it all into a thrilling novel that will entertain you every time you read or listen to it. I think this was my 4th listen. This series was my intro to Scottish Historical Romance novels. It was also to blame for my long standing addiction to the genre'. Yet I have never found anything like it even though it is the ruler by which I measure them all.
This specific book is as unique unto itself as are all the others and at the same time they all play off of a similar theme. The genius who wrote these is Carefully crafting the endgame which begins its tale in her next series. (fae fever) Each of the Highlander books stand alone and any one of the Highlander books is a story in itself. Yet the theme does take you somewhere if you choose to follow it. I unfortunately read the "fae fever" series first and then went back to read these. I recommend them IN ORDER. But that's not actually nessesary.
NARRATOR: Phil Gigante is excellent. Some of the female voices come off Masculine from time to time but it doesn't hurt anything. His warm sexy tones and romantic Scottish brogue made listening to him a pleasure. His performance is masterful!
CREDITWORTHY? Without a doubt yes! l'd pay for each listen if I had to.
HEAT FACTOR: OH MY! OFF the charts, full rolling boil, steamy, sexy , smokey but not crude.!
I don't want to give it away but, I will assure you that there are quite a few areas in this audiobook that will make you say WOW, and propel you to continue with the rest of the quite entertaining story.
Rabid Listener/Reader and Shopper!
Narration - Phil Gigante - Pretty Good
He reads flawlessly, does great Highland Men, but his women are falsetto - just sounds too much like a guy trying to overly dramatize a woman's voice.
Really enjoying this series, but I love me some Highlanders.
There are time travel elements in each book, however, as I listen to more of the series, I see that the highlanders are all related, not really directly, but in more indirect ways, so I like that tie-in. They are also getting better, the farther I get into the series. I do not own all of these, so at this point, am listening to the ones that I've gotten through specials via Audible. At some point, I'm certain I will get them all.
I'm one of the reviewers at the Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I am always reading - I don't go anywhere without an ebook or audiobook!
This book keeps with the vibe of the series which has such a strong plot line woven throughout. Then add to that, the voice of the narrator heats it up another level. During some of the steamier scenes, my toes absolutely curled in delight. Phil Gigante is the best.
Phil Gigante as the narrator is Awesome!! Scottish brogue is fantastic. He sounds like Sean Connery. The story will keep you enthrralled from beginning to end.
The entire Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning is brilliant!
The Lead character Circian Brody and Duncan are fantastic!
When Circian told Lisa to "Take"...goose bumps!
Just take and enjoy the book!
Time Travel, Warrior, Safe
