Well, well, well. That is all I really have to say about this first book in the Dark Sword series. There is really nothing remarkable about this particular highland romance. It is a basic story with a touch of the paranormal but, other than that, it is a very basic romance. This has the making of a good series but, if you look at it, the story has been told many times over. Three brothers, who are very close, share an adventure and are obviously going to find love one by one as will their friends. There were almost no surprises and a great deal of syrupy sweet romantic moments between the main characters. The medieval highland theme provides a wonderful setting for romance but if you are looking for something with more depth you will probably be disappointed. For a trilogy with humor, lots of unexpected twists and turns, and still full of romance, you may want to take a look at the McCabe trilogy by Maya Banks. All three books are worth the credits or the cash price!
Yes. There is so much to absorb. The delightfully fascinating details are irresistible. Besides... who can resist sexy highland men?
Karen Monings Highlander series. Had a similar blend of fantasy and romance with the suspense and eroticism.
I was very pleased with the narration! The distinct individuality of each voice along with tempo cadence and expression. His voice is comfortable and easy to hear.
Out and out laughing or crying... no. Neither did I want to toss it in frustration. I did, however, want to finish in one listen and anticipate the next one!
Altho the main storyline was basically complete I still felt cheated and even resented the fact that I needed to go on to the next one to find out what happens to storylines I had anticipated would conclude in this book instead of feeling like I had only bought half the book. I was very frustrated with the end and saw all of the set ups for the series obviously set up already.
The characters are well developed and the story flows seamlessly. A good story makes the reader feel a part of that world, regardless of how fatastical that worldd may be. This book does it well. AND...I think the series is going to get better. Which, of course, is another mark of the good book, leaving the reader wanting more.
Its definitely up there. But its so hard to choose favorites. Too many good ones out there.
Cara. She was so sweet.
Fallon. I think he did a great job of conveying his feelings through his voice.
It was all around really enjoyable.
A wonderful highlander romance! A beautiful story of three brothers lost to their Gods for centuries living in the pain and denial of their losses! Wonderfully written and Mr Ferguson narration is passionate and has that great Ireland brogue. I loved it!
Some people don't like him but I love him! I think he is great! When a book is from a male perspective I would rather listen to a guy trying to sound like a girl for the other parts than the other way around! I am always pleased when he is the narrator!
I decided to purchase this book based on the wonderful reviews. I should have gone to amazon and read some of the reviews giving it 1 and 2 stars to get the real scoop!
This book could have been a short story. ( a very short story!!) It just dragged on and on with nothing new to say. I kept wondering when the "action" or even the STORY was going to start. Cliff hanger at the end for book 2 which I certainly will not be listening to. Don't waste your credit!
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
I have listened to several Highland books and I wasn't impressed with this series. Although I do enjoy Antony baritone voice, it wasn't enough to save the storyline of this book. The characters are quite predictable as well as the outcome. If it hadn't purchased this item due to a sale, I don't think I would have wasted a credit on it.
The author brought you into the story with good detail and strong characters. I am a sucker for a good romance and I love the Highander stories and fables. When the first book ended I said "what, it can't end like that". It made me buy the next book...
Of course Lucan MacLeod
Since I'm not a writer I couldn't tell you
His voice is probaby what kept me listening
All were needed
