Well, despite the promising cover, I have finally found a Highlander book that didn't wow me - it was soooo s l o w - and I was listening on double ti..Show More »me!!
The story just progressed at such a slow tempo that I was thinking about skipping parts to get to the good bits but even if I had done that there were such few good bits to find I may have missed them altogether.

The challenge was Fiona's little girl voice, but I didn't find his performance of her distracting enough to diminish the book.
I eagerly await Book 3 and I will most certainly seek out more of Roger Hampton's narrations.
