I really enjoyed this highlander story. My only real issue was the narrator would switch between a scottish burr and her normal american accent. When Rosalyn Landor (my favorite narrator) reads, she stays in the same dialect. I would have preferred the narrator to pick one and stick with it. But overall, she did well.
easy to follow
I felt she does a good job, however it sounds like some of the people in the story come from Transavania not Scottland.
Probably with a different narrator
Couldn't get that far
The Scott accents were weird and sounded more like Dracula than Scottish. The regular bathroom sounded to sleepy and monotone
Didn't get that far
This is the first book I've listened to by Maya Banks. I found myself picking up my iPod every time I had a spare moment, even if it was just for five minutes. The story was good, grabbed me at the first page, and the characters likable. Ms Banks did a wonderful job with her secondary characters, I am hoping they get a grand story of their own.
For now, I am now off to buy the other two books in this series.
Original plot and characters. A storyline that is not contrived.
I listened to The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane. It had a very good balance of an original story and interesting characters. Howe has a nice writing style and Kellgren did a fine job as the narrator. There was even romance - one I liked.
The narrator was not up to the task of keeping in character. One minute she had a faux Scottish accent, the next a bland American one.
The question is which one to keep in? I cannot think of any except for a secondary child character.
I rarely buy romances. I decided to try this one because it was on sale and had so many 5 star reviews. Why anyone would give this a 5 stars is beyond me.
Story starts out fairly violent and cruises for a while working on the relationship of the heroine (and make no mistake, she is a heroine, not a damsel in distress) with her new husband and new clan. The characters in the story were well done. The narration really drew me into the story and made it real. Kristen Potter had great accents for the characters and she did a very good job with male voices. The end of the story ends with some suspense and action that was fine, but sort of gilding the lily on this great listen.
Say something about yourself!
This was an okay listen. When I was done I didn't have any overwhelming feelings in either direction- love or hate. I think what holds this book above water is the narration. The story line is decent, but predictable. I found myself giving a half hearted cheer in certain parts of the book...
M.O.M. - manager of mayhem!
It took a while for me to even care about the heroine or the hero.... so it dragged until the second half when the story line picked up.. I did enjoy it and the second book is proving to be worth it!
It's ok.. she moves pretty fast though... but her accent in genuine and easy to listen to
I'M MALE NOT FEMALE, BUT IT'S ASKING TO MUCH FOR AUDIBLE TO CORRECT THERE RECORDS, THERE NOT SMART ENOUGHT
FUN SEXY ROMANCE
THE HIGHLANDER WAS FERCE YET SOOOO LOVING
THE FEELING SHE GAVE EACH CHARACTER WAS SO VERY ON POINT I COULD JUST LAY BACK AND FEEL THE STORY AS IF I WAS THERE WITH THEM.
YES YES YES
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I have not read the printed version..I am now an audible addict with a sackful of books in my closet.
Love story, sexy with the usual but good ending.
I enjoyed the narration, her characters were distinct and natural, even the men.
I listened to the entire trilogy in a weekend!
Listen in order..they are all a bit unique but follow all the characters along.
