Yes! It sucks that this is just a novella. I am hoping and hoping that Ms Moning would continue her Highlander series... but she herself written that she wouldn't :-(
I suppose the storyline of this book is pretty similar to Gena Showalter's Wicked Night... only because of the .... "inexperienced tormented male hero finally falling in love" part. But this novella is a lot shorter and sweeter I guess...
The part when Jane teaches him how to kiss ;-P HOT HOT HOT
there were more than one part... but I'll have to tell the entire story if I go into it ;-)
Please write another book Ms. Moning!
Hmm, if I were to rate it from among the audiobooks in my collection, on a scale of 1-10, I'd have to give it about a 7. That's really not bad, considering I have well over 200 audiobooks on my shelf, and that fact that it's a short story, not a full-blown novel or epic.
Gail Carriger's 'Souless' comes to mind. Not because of any similarities of plot or setting - there are none - but because they both make me laugh.
The hero of course. Phil always makes them come through as believable, human, and downright sexy.
Just to clarify for anyone not familiar with Karen Marie Moning's works - This book does NOT tie-in to her Highlander or her Fever series. 'Into the Dreaming', 'Beyond the Highland Mist' and 'To Tame a Highland Warrior' are all early works where the author was still feeling her way, and stand on their own (although BtHM and TTaHW are both loosely connected to each other.) I highly recommend the audio versions for any of her books - especially those narrated by Phil Gigante, but would suggest you start with either TTaHW or 'The Highlander's Touch'. BtHM is her first book, and has more to do with the kind of story acceptable to publishers at the time of its writing than any of Karen's actual style of plots and/or characterization.
Another great pairing of narrator and author!
The highlander series
His voice is magic; he just sucks you in
If you like time travel romances you will love this!
maybe a 3.
all of them, they carried each other
he is great in all his performances!! love his voice and the way he tells a story
loved it all!
I have heard this entire series and this was by far the worst of all the books. The story line was "cheezy" so easy to predict and lacked in any real quality. The narrators feamale voices make me slightly irritated like fingers on a chalk board.
A little bit of heaven and a little bit of sadness. I so loved Karen Marie Moning's highlander series. It's sad to know that she's probably done with it. Every book in the series was magical. When Into The Dreaming was offered as an audiobook I immediately jumped on it. It was a short, but fulfilling story. KM Moning's highlanders coupled with Phil Gigante's narration means stories on steroids no matter how short. It's a combination that can't be beat.

I love Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series and Into the Dreaming was no exception. Granted, I was disappointed to realize that it was much shorter than her other Highlander works but in this case quality definitely trumped quantity. Listening to Into the Dreaming is a perfect way to pass a lazy evening or boring commute. Phil Gigante's narration is as wonderful as ever.
Karen Marie Moning is a great story teller. I find myself laughing out loud at the banter between her charcters and she paints pictures which I can almost see in my head. I also look for books read by Phil Gigante. His voice fits KMM male charcters sooooo well. He was awsome in KMM Fever books. Dreaming was a fun quick read.
Never miss one of KMM's stories-great writer-great to read and reread after a time. If you like to read about the Fae you will have fun with this novella.
This book was simply not up to par with the authors other books. It greatly lacked substance and interesting characters. However, I would highly recommend other books by this author, just not this cheap romance.
