Moning demonstrates that she has capabilities beyond the romance genre even as she delivers romantic excellence.
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
The 9th century Cian MacKeltar is given a second chance to end his long captivity and stop the evil Lucan once and for all. Such an opportunity is only possible with the assistance of Jessi St. James whom he discovers is his mate. Cian has notions on the roles of the sexes whilst Jessi is a modern gal. Some of their interactions are simply hysterical as traditions collide.
As is Moning's way, the story hooks us right from the start. Though it could stand alone, the second half of "Spell..." is far more complete having previously read "Kiss of the Highlander" and the "Dark Highlander" - Books 4 & 5 where Drusdan and Daegus return. These three Highlander books also provide some critical framework if one eventually graduates to Moning's popular Fever series. Phil Gigante narrates all the male characters exceptionally well... what a sexy voice!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
yes, good listen. If you need the steps, then buy in order. If you like strong characters, these books make reference to the series, but the details just link, as the stories do stand alone. I have read in reversed order, and am just fine with the enjoyment.
Books 4,5,6,7 are in the same style. On the hunt for....so you get some mystery, fun dialogue, and sexy men.
all of his highland stories are just great. He has such a big range and his timing so good.
He makes these stories just jump out.
many, as this is the last story!
When the sale comes, buy all you can. I did. enjoy
I would place it in the top third.
I like that the ending was not predictable. The major conflict was set up in a way that I thought I knew what was going to happen but it ended up going another way. I enjoyed the twist.
I have listened to other work by Mr. Gigante and I would say that this performance is on par with his other good work.
Jessi.....her back bone, her promise of true love
yes the mirror, the times Jessi sat by her highlander while he was trapped inside
All of Karen Marie Moning books on the Highlander series are wonderfully written, with love, passion, lust, regret, fear and most of all happiness. these are true love stories, with heartbreak and happiness, with pain and pleasure. you fall in love with each characters in her story, that's her gift to us her fans.... thank you KMM
Phil Gigante Rocks!
Other Karen Marie Moning Highlander books. Series is great. Audio books can stand alone or listen in order. Once you hear one, you'll be hooked.
Can't say enough about Phil Gigante's narration.. I look for books narrated by him now.
surprisingly well developed story line and plot for a romance novels. if you can keep an open mind to myths ledgends and the supernatural this series can be highly entertaining. i normally stay as far away from romance novels but on a whimsical and rather random notion i took the recomendation from a cowofker on this author on the promise of a well developed plot and entertaining. i was not disappointed in the least and have been hooked on the author ever since.
I found it pretty incredible. After listening to the book twice, I heard details that I missed the first time around. It is all coming together and I can hardly wait to see what happens next.
I have thoroughly enjoyed each of the books so far in the series.
Yes. I love the story.
When Cian threw the mirror down the stairs, knowing that it would break and that he would die. What a sacrifice! Thank you for allowing him to live.
I love the Scottish accent.
When Cian was yelling at Dageus to go find Jessica, who had been left behind, it really showed how much Cian loved her. It also reminded Dageus how much he loved Chloe. It was a very emotional moment.
It would be great if they could redo the audio book with a female narrator and a male narrator. I love Phil, but adding a real female would make the feminine characters sound believable.
