I always love how Elizabeth Rose brings together the friendships and clan you read about in her other books in the series and how they always continue to support and carry on together.
I liked the surprise person who redeemed themselves at the end.
Tim Campbell does yet another wonderful job adding life to the different characters in the story. It's always a pleasure listening to his versions with the various voices.
No I enjoy listening to this over many days as I had the time to.
I very much enjoyed how Elizabeth Rose took one of Scotland's best loved heroines and a reminded readers now about the sacrifice she made as well as giving her descendants a story.
My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.
Tim Campbell narrates this story brilliantly. Multiple character voices with all range of emotion. Outstanding.
Aidan MacKeefe is guarding the true Stone of Destiny, keeping the stone's hiding place a secret, safe from the hands of the English.
Aidan is a bit more playful in nature than his two closest friends, Onyx and Ian, and has a reputation of not being able to keep a secret. Growing up hearing stories of the Stone of Destiny his entire life, Aidan digs a whole in the ground, places the stone there and lays his bed on top of the stone, hoping he too will have prophetic dreams as told in the old stories. One night Aidan dreams of an angel, so clearly, so vividly, he knows in his heart she is real. Aidan just has to find her.
Assisting Aidan in his quest in life is his faithful, loving companion, his squirrel. The author does an excellent job creating characters with animals. The adventures this squirrel takes you on will make you laugh out loud.
Effie MacDuff must help the English find the Stone of Destiny. Her young sister's life depends on it, as her sister is being held captive by the English. What Effie doesn't know is she is Aidan's dream angel. The more they are with one another, the more they fall for each other. How can Effie betray Aidan? No one has ever been so kind to her, so sweet and good to her. What will Aidan do if Effie helps the English get the stone? Although this book is the second in the series, it stands on its own and is a real delight. I laughed during multiple scenes and sat on the edge of my seat as I read more intensely powerful moments. This is one of my favorites. A must read, or listen to on audiobook.
Highly entertaining, incredibly humorous, very sweet and romantic.
Too bad the gemstone reference is over, aw well.
I am a huge fan of this entire series and of Tim Campbell! Medieval romance, the stone of destiny, madmen of honor, outrageous pets, villains and heroes.... nothing gets left out. Well, except for the sex. But it's all good!
I hate that my next book is the last by Elizabeth Rose on Audible.... I can be patient, there has to be more!
Aidan used the Stone of Destiny as a pillow. He was asleep on the stone dreaming that his door opened and an angel came into the room wearing a long white hooded cloak. She had red ringlets and green eyes. In behind her came a whole army of English solders to steal Scotland's stone. When she turned around there was a red tail sticking out of the back. When he woke, he saw his pet squirrel running across his chest and screeching. He had bit his poor squirrel's tail. His friends Onyx and Ian made fun of him.
Effie and her sister were captured and put in cages by the English. Her grandmother was Scottish and had given her a secret to hold close.
The first thread on a tapestry was Onyx. The second new tapestry went on the loom with Aidan's story. It was woven by the talent of Author Elizabeth Rose. The Narriator hung it on the wall. It shows a scene of laughs, love and courage from the first thread until the last knot is tied. You will laugh at all the fun the MadMen get into.
