This just like all the other books in this series is something that grabs you and doesn't let go! You will find yourself lost to this Highlander and wishing you knew how to enter this group!
I love books, it's my great escape.
KMM is a wonderful writer. This is one of the best books in this series. Girls do your self a favor and listen to the entire series of books. Not to mention the Dark series with Barrons and Mac.
I've just got to say ladies, if Phil doesn't melt you with his masculine sexy Irish accent through out this romantic story than you need your hormone levels checked out. I'm ready to jump on a plane to Scotland and find me a fine young lad to call me lass. His reading alone made it for me, no other Irish man will do for me. I hear his voice and I melt. He's yummy in my world!
This is my very first audio book purchase, and what a pick it was ! The story is engaging. I love Adam Black's character development. My only complaint is Gabby's voice.... sounds so inadequate, but overall the story is great.
The narrator doesn't really do the scottish burrs or the female voices very well but I was able to enjoy the story despite it. Typical historical romance but a tad cheesy even for this genre at the end but I would probably listen to it a second time for something fun and light.
This book is a must read!! The first 10 minutes, I wondered if I had made a mistake but oh my goodness when it took off, it took off! The love scenes will burn your ears! I listen during the day while at work and laughed out loud several times before catching myself and was embaressed when I had to turn my head to keep anyone from seeing me cry in parts of the book! This book is awesome!
I love Adam Black. I'm going back and listening to Beyond the Highland Mists to hear how Adam has changed over time.
Phil Gigante rocks this series! He knocks it out of the park in this one. He tackles more characters including multiple Highland hunks meaning he has to distinguish multiple Scottish accents. He also does a wide range of emotions - female crying, laughter, disbelief, sarcasm, humor, love and I felt them all! Phil has definitely fine tuned his female voices.
When Gabrielle finally breaks down and cries, i could feel the emotion in Phil's narration that it brought tears to my eyes. An audiobook brought tears to my eyes! It's that good.
Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series is getting better with each book. The characters are stereotypical, but as someone else mentioned, its a nice escape. I am so hooked, I'll be really sad when I have completed the series.
Phil Gigante does it again. His burr was just seductive and elevated the story. But it was still about Adam Black's HEA with Gabrielle O'Callaghan.
Adam was punished for saving Daegus' life against the fae queens orders. The Fae Queen punished him and took away his immortality and made him human. Adam runs into a sidhe seer, and he coerced Gabby to help him contact the Fae Queen, in order to beg for his old powers back.
Unfortunately, an old nemesis Daroc, decided that is was easier to kill Adam as a human, and so he sent hunters to murder Adam. Thus Adam figured out Daroc was trying to overthrow the queen and take seelie power. Adam had to stop him...and protect Gabby whom he'd begun to crave like no other woman before.
Gabby was a good heroine. She seemed strong, and didn't trust Adam for quite a while. But Adam seduced her with looks, cars, material things and of course but his protection/consideration for her safety. So another virgin falls for a fae. I liked Adam And Gabby but Adam outshines her by far. It's okay because Adam spans two series and he is a big character. But he has been likable in the last couple of books, so it was nice to see him as the smart mouth, wise Alec troublemaker. Adam as a human had human desires and he was thoughtful of others in a way he normally isn't. Though he was still Adam in many ways.
This was sweet and a tad cheesy at the end...but that's how I like it. This is my 2nd favorite book, after book 2. I am looking forward to finishing this series soon.
