If you are interested in this genre, then read The Outlander series by Diana G. These books were a cheap thrill with poor writing. Not impressed at all.
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 am a fan of Johanna Lindsey romance novels. Although this had a tad more crude sex then I like, I am hooked, I will be reading through the whole series!
If you are looking for light reading with no basis in historical fact, this is a really fun read.
The premise for time travel is fresh; I really like the characters in the fairy court.
First time- the voice is clear and pleasant.
Arrogant overlord meets his match
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
I'm at a loss as to how this writer could ever be compared to Diana Gabaldon. There is no comparison, I'm at a complete loss as to how this book ever got published. It is juvenile and extremely frustrating to listen to as the narrator is very annoying.
The story line is quite pathetic especially the "love" story it tries portray as there is nothing in it that has any ring of truth to it. It's a work of fiction to the extreme but in every book you want to feel that the love story the author touches upon is at the very least fesible somewhere. I found everything in this book to be unbelievabe on every level. Sorry I wasted my money.
Im a busy Mama, always on the go! Lover of historical fiction and Sci fi horror.
Ok this book was recommended to me because I love the Outlander series, and it doesn't hold a candle. That said, this book was fun to say the least. If you're looking for substance go elsewhere, but if you like a steamy romance you won't be dissapointed. yummy!!
Easy going listener, I only write reviews is the book is really good or really bad.
Yes, great narration and wonderful writing
don't want to give anything away here
first time. Great narrator.
I really liked the slow build to the characters realization that they love eachother
Maybe, this kind of story is my private and guilty pleasure. The story doesn't compare to the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. It's a similar concept, but not a well crafted.
When Hawk and Adrain FINALLY get it together!
I will most likely work my way through the series, however I really don't enjoy this guy's female voices. They really bug the hell out of me - they sound whiny!! So I had to work really hard on suspending my sense of disbelief - which is what fiction is all about, right?
He has a great voice for the male characters, but he just can't pull off the women - which is a disappointment. The romantic/sexual scenes were quite enjoyable - nice to hear a man talking sexy:-)
It never stops amazing me how we all have different tastes. There are quite a few people that didn’t like Phil Gigante, but I think he is absolutely incredible. He is a reason I am listening to a historical romance series which I never do.
The plot is quite cheesy, but please remembers this book is listed under ROMANCE and SCI-FI & FANTASY sections. I just wish people read reviews before they buy books, instead writing bad reviews because the story or characters are not very deep.
Anyway, these are perfect books for multitasking and simply being lazy. I enjoy Karen Moning style and the fantasy world she created. I already know that this will be one of the best series for for easy listening. And I will be listening to Highlander series again when I need a distraction.
I have already listened to this several times. I wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything
When Phil Gigante speaks in the highland accent you can feel that you're talking to an actual highlander.
