    Sin was born a Sumerian god, until he was tricked into Artemis' service as a Dark-Hunter. This immortal has dreamed only of regaining his godhood and seeking revenge on the goddess who betrayed him. But when a beautiful woman, in perilous danger from those he now hunts, suddenly appears in his life, Sin knows that his world will never be the same again.

    "Typical Dark Hunter, narrator not to my taste"
    Overall

    The book is a typical Dark-Hunter, so while it's not high literature, its entertaining and fulfils everything you'd expect from the author. You also find out more background info about the enigmatic Acheron, which was quite to my taste!
    Where I seem to disagree with most other reviewers is in the narrator: This more or less ruined the audio book for me. With Kenyon's writing being rather blatant by itself, the exaggerating and over-emphasizing style of the narrator definitely crosses the line to the ridiculous. I found myself halfway between laughing and embarassment....
    I find that a female narrator suits this type of book much better and rather liked the one doing "The Dark Side of the Moon".

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    What did you like best about this story?

    While I can't quite put my finger on why, I rather liked this audiobook. The dual story of an author coming to Scotland while writing a novel about the Jacobite uprisings seems rather unspectacular and appears to be mainly two romances very loosely interconnected. However, the characters, as well as the setting in Scotland are quite vivid and held me interested, leading to a happy, and quite foreseeable ending to the plot. While the esoteric aspects of Carrie's ideas of "genetic memory" may not appeal to everyone, they are not prevalent enough to be disturbing. Altogether a very pleasant listen, in particular for Scotland fans. When I turned my calendar shortly after starting this audiobook, I turned to a photo of - Slains Castle. Well, I guess I will have to go see this place now.

    Narrator is very flexible and distinctive in her performance of the various characters. Top Choice!
