Publisher's Summary

Meet the MacKay Banshees...

Katriona -

Her last memory is of her violent death, and now she's screaming for vengeance. He's a Laird with enough sins to stain his soul, but he's cursed for the crimes of another. With a clan divided, an impending marriage, and whispers of dark magic threatening the Highlands, a tempting Banshee is the last thing he needs in his chambers.

Kylah -

She was brutalized and burned alive, but denied her vengeance by a cruel twist of fate. He's a ruthless and brilliant Druid driven mad by his quest for retribution. Two Souls have lost themselves in the tormented secrets of the past and can only find redemption in the dangerous desires they thought long dead.

Kamdyn -

She's a Banshee assassin who's not yet killed a man, and her first mark had a carnal proposition too seductive to resist. He's the notorious Laird of Shadows, a rogue Berserker terrorizing the Highlands in search of a warrior's death. When a mistaken kiss binds their souls together, she must prove that love, not fear, changes the course of destiny. Because if she doesn't, she'll have to slay him or face unthinkable consequences.

    "Auditory Bliss"

    I was eagerly awaiting the release of Reclaimed after having devoured Unleashed. Any expectations I had were completely blown out of the water. Kerrigan Byrne and Derek Perkins demonstrate why they make such a dynamic team. With Byrne's master storytelling and artful prose, and Perkins' exquisite performance, this series delights and surprises at every turn. The mix of romance, mythology, mystery, and humor in these novellas has set a high bar for other writers in this genre. I can't wait to hear what Byrne and Perkins do next! Here's to looking forward to the evening commute!

    "I'm in love!"
    Where does Reclaimed: A Highland Historical Trilogy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love the Kerrigan Byrne/ Derrick Perkins collaboration. I read this in ebook format and loved all three stories, and to hear them from Derrik Perkins brings them to life in whole other way. Perfection. It's like pure poetry and such a pleasure to listen to. I will be going back and listening again and again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Reclaimed: A Highland Historical Trilogy?

    There are too many. In Released, the tub scene stands out for obvious reasons. But I also loved when she went to kill him with her screams and they didn't work.

    Redeemed it had to be when Daroch buried Kylah's bones. So incredibly touching.

    Reluctant was the proposal to hold off killing him until morning, after the loving. So much to love about these stories.

    Story
    "More paranormal than romance."

    This story lies squarely in the paranormal genre. Metaphysics are a fun addition to a story, but I prefer them as garnish, not the meat of the book. This book is comprised of three short stories, so they move quickly without as much character development as I like. You get plenty of Celtic/Nordic lore: banshee, berserkers, faeiries, and Druids. If you choose books for their paranormal content, you will like this better than I.

    Three sisters are brutally murdered by fire. Their mother is seriously burned, but survives.
    The stories of this book begin with the sisters' afterlives as banshee. The mother's story line is mingled with her daughters', but is unclear and doesn't seem to go anywhere.

    Because these are short stories, everything happens abruptly. The written-in-stone paranormal rules that govern these creatures just conveniently fall away when it's time to conclude each story. In retrospect, these stories seem more like a prologue to some epic Highland tale than a stand alone book. Maybe that's the plan. The author has assembled these powerful creatures into one clan through marriages, now the real the story can begin??

    The narrator has a nice voice but seems to be getting as tired of the story as I by the end and some later segments sound a little robotic.

    So, again, if you choose books just for paranormal content, you will like this selection better than I. If you choose books for a complete story or for romantic exchanges, you may be disappointed.

    "Wow, be prepared to swept into the highland mist."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I read this book and the audio grabs you up and sweeps you away!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Reclaimed: A Highland Historical Trilogy?

    There were just too many memorable moments to pick one. These stories have it all laughter ,sadness, longing and plenty of hot love scenes.


    What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

    So easy to get caught in the stories and lost to his narration. Loved his voice!! Derek could talk to me all day long !


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Katrina & Rory are both fierce and their story matches them sizzling hot! Will Rory survive Katriona's need for vengeance or will their building attraction send them both up in flames.

    Kylah & Daroch travel along a slow sensual road . Kylah determined to discover everything Daroch is keeping from her. Daroch ignores the desire building for the little banshee until it flares into a love they cannot deny.

    Kamdyn & Soren She may be petite but she is a banshee determined . Soren a beserker warlord whose world is of shadows and blood. He fears no one and yet seeing this tiny assassin he fears that he & his beserker has found their mate. For one stolen night of love Soren and his beserker agree to accept death at the hands of Kamdyn . Can Kamydn do as the queen has commanded and kill Soren come morning.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first audio I have got to say it's amazing!! I have read Kerrigan's books and love them.Hearing them come alive through Derek's narration is a whole new experience.
    I thought this would be great for driving. But operating a car or riding a bike may be hazardous to your person as its so hot to listen to!! I thought it best to get a spare pair of earbuds taking no chances . Be warned Reclaimed will claim you and not release you until you finish!

    Story
    "BE PREPARED TO BE CAPTIVATED, ENTRANCED & CHARMED"

    Also be prepared to be transported to the ancient Highlands of Scotland where mythology, legends and the Fae still exist as we find out, in these 3 novellas, about 3 daughters who are turned into Banshees by the Fae after their brutal deaths and now their out for vengeance and justice on the men who caused their deaths but there's a very big problem to their plans.

    Their undeserving victims 3 sexy Highland hunks - a Laird, a Druid and a Berserker (decisions, decision, decisions I just can't decide who I liked best) whose lives are about to make a dramatic change as they each meet a Banshee and they go on a sexy, but pain filled journey of desire, lust and love that will test their beliefs and loyalties.

    All 3 stories were unpredictable, sexy, descriptive, emotional and very enjoyable novellas written by a talented author who wrote about some well developed characters who are all unfortunately caught in the Fae's twisted web. There's great chemistry between each of the couples as this passionate, tragic, tender, romantic, sexy (if you didn't get it the last few times I said it!!) and very funny at times, paranormal tale unfolds and the talented narrator makes each one an enjoyable, addictive non-stop listen.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely and, although you'll probably have your favorite story, they were each a delightful worthy listen.

    Any additional comments?

    Reclaimed
    I was telling myself all through this story that I wasn’t going to like the end because as a banshee she was already dead. But I continued on and I’m so glad I did. What a great little story. You couldn’t help but love Katriona, even as she tried again and again to kill Rory while she also desired him. I did like Queen Cliodnah. And Lorne was really kind of funny, he was just no capable of talking quietly. I was sooo glad that they didn’t go to the stable for “straps and whips and whatever apparatus may catch our fancy,” until the very last two pages. Their one sex scene was very, very nice and I didn’t want it ruined with whips and other crap. 5 stars.

    Redeemed
    Another great story. This time about Kylah and Daroch. It was a very nice story but I’m sure glad Daroch finally washed and stopped putting that mud all over himself. Nothin’ appealing in that. Some nice sex in this but no sexual tension to speak of. And, boy, again that Queen Cliodnah and her killing minion Ly Erg were really something. So, the next one is the last one and I can’t wait for Kamdyn’s story. 5stars

    Reluctant
    I was beginning to think that this book was only going to have Soren and Kamdyn as the only players, it went on so long with just the two of them. And I really wouldn’t have minded, either. Their conversations and were quite funny and entertaining. LOL.. Kamdyn wasn’t much of a killer. And the MacLauchlan’s turned out to be a little less than blood-thirsty (and Lindsay was pretty smart.) I wasn’t crazy about their first sex scene because it was so violent but I could overlook it because it was such a cute story. It was nice to see Rory and Daroch again. 4 stars.

    I got this book free with my KindleUnlimited but I would have gladly paid for it.

    As to the narrator: He was a good reader. Good with the men’s voices but truly sucked with the women’s voices. He really needs to, also, do more than just read the book. He has no emotions to speak of and that’s important for a narrator. IMO..

    Heartbreaking
    Thrilling
    Carthartic


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kamdryn was my fave character. She was witty, sweet, and adorable!


    What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

    he did a great girl's voice but the male portrayal was a bit effeminates . The Berserker is the ultimate male. I'd like to hear that.

    "Even better than Unclaimed!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed Kerrigan Byrne's first set of novellas, Unclaimed, and it quickly became a go-to when I was low on book money and needed to re-visit my own library. So, naturally I was thrilled to see Audible had made another set of her novellas available. This set, Reclaimed, I like even better than the first! Both are well-written and well-narrated, but I just enjoyed the characters more in this set than the previous, and find myself now wanting to listen to this one more than Unclaimed.

    The one thing I'd like to note that Ms. Byrne did that is quite impressive, is that each story is highly individual to each pairing. Sometimes in a series an author ends up re-creating character patterns or relationships, where it becomes hard to separate different couples from each other after you've read through six. Not so with these six total highland historical novellas. Each is unique, and as I listened to each for the first time, they all felt fresh and new.

    And I know some people don't love short stories, but if you're waffling, these are the ones to give it a go with! Even though each story is only a few hours, they don't feel underdeveloped at all. They really are well balanced - if you like PNR or historical romance with a little magic, it's not even a question. Just add to cart. And if you haven't listened to her other stories, add those too.

    "Loved the books and loved listening too!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Reclaimed: A Highland Historical Trilogy to be better than the print version?

    I loved reading these books but there is just something about listening to them. It really makes the characters come alive and you can really visualize the scene more. Im a sucker for accents so listening to this book was amazing.


    What other book might you compare Reclaimed: A Highland Historical Trilogy to and why?

    I would compare Reclaimed with Unleashed. Both are amazing sets of siblings finding their ways and coming back together.


    What does Derek Perkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He really brings the characters to life.

    Adventure, romance, redemption

    No, but I have listened to others and this was very good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Kamdyn's story - always love Kerrigan's Berserker story line.
