The male voices were a terrible combination of sandpaper/foghorn, the females high/squeaky. It would have been better if the SD had used something closer to a normal voice. The dialogue was acted well, but everything else was spoken in cadence rather than truly narrated.
Predictable storyline and horrible narration. I know that this is fiction and not intended to be "historical fiction", but let's try to at least use appropriate language and references. "You may kiss the bride" at a 12th century Scots wedding? The frequent use of the word "daft" reminds the listener that the story takes place in Scotland, in case the unbearable accent of the narrator didn't already lead you to that conclusion. Don't waste a credit. Please Audible - include the original publication date of materials in any format.

The story was great, but the voices for all the women were very high- pitched and whiny. By the end of the book it had grown on me and I didn't notice it so much.
Two romance scenes would have been enough. It felt padded with the rest of them, otherwise a good read.
the reader was not my favorite. it's very breathy which I find distracting. the women characters seemed a little shrill and I thought the male characters sounded like they had vocal chord problems. the actual voice during narrative was less annoying, but dragged out the last word which I didn't care for.
