Dark times have fallen upon Scotland. King David II is a prisoner of England. Angus McKenna, revered chief of Clan MacDougall, and his son-in-law Duncan McEwan sit in a dungeon in Edinburgh, accused of crimes against their king and country. Their wives are missing.
Can devotion, honor and fealty light a candle in the darkness?
Invoking the Bond of the Seven Clans, Nial McKee, son-in-law to Angus McKenna sets out to discover the truth behind the charges. While he enlists the help of his good friends Caelen McDunnah and Rowan Graham, his lovely wife Bree appeals to friends of her own for a much different kind of assistance.
But time is running out for Angus and Duncan. Friendship and love of family alone might not be enough to save McKenna’s Honor.

This book is a novella of this series and not a full length novel. I would advise getting the first 3 books before listening to this one because this book elaborates on past events and gives more clarity as to how the Clan members connect while giving glimpses of the future Graham Clan (the next series). The author weaves a captivating tale that is full of mystery and adventure. A must for highlander lovers.
The narrator is wonderful in this series. He does an exceptional job with each voice....doesn't get any better!
Yes, I enjoyed the mystery and suspense.
All of the characters, Brad did a great job with all the different voices of all the characters.
Yes, it was a truly engaging story.
I loved all the characters.
Amazing performance. I loved how he created a distinctive voice for each character and his Scottish accent was perfect.
Yes. It takes me to another time where I can forget the troubles of this world. Brad Wills does such a wonderful job doing this book!!
Angus McKenna. He has so much devotion for his family and honor it makes me so proud of him to risk his own life for his family and clan.
He brings out the passion of the characters and bring life into the book.
I think it is so brave of Duncan MacEwan to risk his life also and that touched my heart.
books are my drug of choice :D
among the top ones
I don't think there is comparison, each book is unique and this one was a jewel, I totally recommend it
Where should I start? I love the whole book. One scene that really stuck with me is when Angus and Duncan where reunited with their wives ... I cried
oh yes, definitely!
This book is amazing, Suzan Tisdale's story telling talent is addictive. I loved the book when I read it, but the narrator's voice brought it to life, what an awesome voice. I am looking forward to listen to the other books in the series.
This is an addition to all of the Clan MacDougall books. I love Suzan's books. I like how the outside world evaporates while you read her stories. It was interesting to see how Suzan puts it all together. Brad Wills does a great job in narrating this story. The characters come to life and his voice! This audio book is a must for your collection!
Honor, Family, Love.
One of the most memorable moments of this book was when the children of the clan showed their feelings about McKenna's sentence to hang.
I was thoroughly satisfied and surprised by Brad Wills's performance. I will definately listen to his other narrations.
The important thing that moved me through the entire book was the closeness of the clan. They didn't stop to wonder if they clan members were guilty or not, they were honor bound to help in any way they could, and they did.
I will begin by saying this is the first book I have read by this particular author. It is also the first audio book I've tried. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I had braced myself for a boring long drawn out session of let's just get it over with and get to the end.
Within the first few minutes I was captured by the narration of this story. Very captivating and draws the listener in to await the next turn of the page, so to speak. This audible version makes a person feel as if they are there or as if they are watching a live play. The voices varied enough to give each character individuality. I am so glad this was my first audible book. It made me want to find the rest of the series and begin listening to them immediately. As they aren't on audio right now, I will instead of course go the first book in the series and begin reading. I realize I have started at the end but this book is great enough to stand on its own and it tells enough of the story so nothing feels like its left out.
One minute I found myself holding my breath to see what would happen next, and the next minute I found myself laughing out loud at some of the antics that were taking place.
If you are looking for a great audible book to listen to or a great book to read, you will not be disappointed in any way with this choice. The only thing I might recommend is to begin with book one and read them in order, but that is not really necessary.
I already have!! I highly recommend McKenna's Honor to everyone, Suzan Tisdale is an amazing author and Brad Wills' voice sweeps you into the story and captivates you.
Brad captured the characters emotions perfectly! You could feel what all of the characters were feeling while Brad is reading McKenna's Honor. I thought Brad's narration of Wee William was amazing! Wee William is the one character that I was worried wouldn't sound quite right, but Brad read the parts of Wee William perfectly.
McKenna's Honor is a wonderful book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and is beautifully written. Brad Wills did an amazing job and I look forward to listening to more audio books that are read by Mr. Wills! Thank you for doing an amazing job!
craft crazy cindy
I couldn't stop listening. It was the best I've read so far by Tisdale. If it had been longer I might have had to go without sleep for a few days. The suspense and plot were awesome!
This novella brought together the main and secondary characters of the three previous books of the series, so to be able to really appreciate the genius of this story, you would be benefitted by reading at least one of the previous books in the series.
All the clans came together with one purpose – to free their Laird Agnus and his foster son Duncan McEwan. The story takes off in a frenzy. Clan men are traveling to Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany to ask for a pardon. The clans have come together, an agreement made some years back where if a clan is in need of assistance, the others will provide it. This goal elicits themes centered around honor, love, greed and jealously.
Forces, the listener is not aware of who or what, are against Angus and Duncan. Both men said they were guilty of a crime which is punishable by death. Why? Time grows short while the clans race to their aid. Suzan Tisdale has hidden the antagonist so well behind twists and turns, it was a complete surprise when revealed.
The wives of his most trusted friends also scheme to ‘kidnap’ the two men. They very nearly succeed. However, the results are not what they imagine. I wanted, no NEEDED to see how the men would be saved. Who would or could provide proof of their innocence? And who is the bastard trying to do this?
For a novella, it was extremely entertaining, wonderfully fast-paced and I was cheering for their success in saving Agnus and Duncan. It truly was a wonderful ending to this series. Ms. Tisdale is one of those historical romance writers who put lots of history into the story, so after I finished the listen, I spent some time quenching my curiosity about the history around these events.
Arlene Lindsay, the young wife of the laird of one of the seven clans, was given a secret by her ill and dying husband to clear Agnus and Duncan. He asked her to travel to Castle Sterling to present the proof. Someone knew she had it for she and her travelling companions were attacked on the way. Who wants Agnus and Duncan dead so desperately? And now who is willing to kill a woman to make it happen? My reader friends, this is one nail-biting read with plenty of suspense.
Brad Wills voiceover is perfect for Suzan Tisdale’s series. If you haven’t had the pleasure of listening to his work, you really should. He is one of the best. He has such control over emotional scenes, changing from one emotion to another even in a scene where emotions are totally different. He’s marvelous when he speaks the inner thoughts of the characters. He had me ‘watching’ the silver screen with the listen. Between Ms. Tisdale’s writing and his production, I spent hours of pure entertainment deep in the highlands. Thank you both.
