From his penthouse lair high above Manhattan, Dageus looks out over a glittering city that calls to the darkness within him. A 16th-century Scot trapped between worlds, he is fighting a losing battle with the 13 Druids who possess his soul, dooming him to an eternity of sexual pursuit.
When Chloe Zanders, student of antiquities, is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable alpha male an irresistible lure. Before long, she is caught up in an ancient prophecy that will sweep her back in time to medieval Scotland. Plunged into a world of timeless magic and dark seduction, she will soon face the challenge of a lifetime: fighting 13 evil spirits for the heart of one irresistible man.

"This wild, imaginative romp takes readers on an exhilarating ride through time and space." (Publishers Weekly)
This was a very easy read. Very nice story. It contained sex, but not so graphic and overly detailed that it was cheesy and cliched. The biggest cliche was the female lead's innocence. I laughed out loud a lot. It satisfied my brief romance novel fix. The narrator did a great job with the male voices and their accents. However, I was not fond of his female voice at at. This is why the performance received only three stars. Overall it was a satisfying read. It kept me entertained and engrossed enough that I finished it in two sittings. I *may* look into other books by this author if they have another narrator for the female voices.
I have absolutely loved this series and listened to it over and over. Phil's voice is amazing and the stories are captivating. I wish I could give it more stars!
I think this would have made more sense as the last book in the series.
As with the entire series, it is fun to imagine these characters dealing with the reality of being in a place and time that is centuries apart from their own. The human implications of being immortal and of commanding magic for good or ill add another enjoyable layer.
He does them all well. When you can recognize a favorite character from a previous story when they show up in the current story, you know your narrator is pretty remarkable. Thank you Mr. Gigante.
Looking forward to the next in the series.
We are now proud parents of a daughter and a wonderful son-in-law! He is also a child of The U. S. Navy, bonded over military time:)!
Of the series, this so far is my favorite one.
I never compare apples and oranges. Different genres each have their own appeal.
Chloe. Cautious but fearless. She never expected what she got. She also was very joyful, which helped The Dark not be so dark.
When Dageus and Chloe meet. Condom wrapper, condom wrapper, MAXIMUS condom wrapper!!!!
Absolutely and I did.
This whole series, is so well written, performed beautifully. I never had to wonder which character was talking except the twins, as they should but when the words came out, then I knew which twin it was.
This is a fantastic book! It runs the full gambit of emotions. I laughed, cried, held my breath. Karen Marie Moning just keeps writing more sensationally with each book and transports us to the romantic magical highlands. Phil Gigante uses his magical voice with his sexy Scottish brogue to make us fall in love with the characters. I find it harder and harder to return from their world. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Be sure to read it!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I listened to this series some time ago, I realized there were a few books that I haven't reviewed. So here we go. If you love highland romances with a bit of fantasy this is the series you should try. You don't necessarily have to read the books in order but there is a thread of storyline that runs through them all and the last book ties them all together, so I do recommend listening to them in order. I love Phil Gigante voice, he is so sexy. Admittedly though his female voice do leave something to be desired but when he does his highland brogue it make you melt.
This series by Moning is really enjoyable. I was not sure I would like all the time travel, but it has been interesting. I feel like there is a bit of a disconnect between the first three in the series and the rest, but the rest are tied together very well. I can't decide if book 4 or 5 is my favorite-both great stories and fun to read. Actually I would highly recommend the whole series.
And the review would not be complete without commenting on Phil Gigante. He is an excellent narrator and I will be looking for his readings in the future!
Omg!!! They just keep getting better and better... I love the narrator brogue his fanatic. This story is fill of adventure, love, torment, happiness all thought not in that order. love all the characters in this book. So worth a credit or two. Download this book you won't regret it.
The writing was very well done. Characters were completely developed and the setting rich with details that captured the senses. While each book stands alone, reading the whole series gave each book greater depth. Truly an excellent series.
