The Psy/Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: old enemies, new allies, and wary loners. But a century of distrust and suspicion can't be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment.

Nalini Singh once again hits it out of the park. Each book in the series has only gotten better. I laughed, I cried and I loved. I am always amazed at how easily she pulls me back into to her world. The characters are so fully developed and easy to connect with.
I loved how we got to catch up with the characters from many of the previous books. She did a great job moving the story forward into a new arc. I'm already anticipating the next one.

The narration is awful. The story is set in England but the narrator uses an American accent the whole time. She miss pronounces several words. I liked the story but the narration ruined it.

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Jim Dale does an incredible job voicing the many characters of Harry Potter. The story remains one of my favorites.

I loved the story but was thrown by the male narrator. Guess I'm used to the female readers. So glad to revisit all the characters.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It took forever! I kept waiting for the story to pick up the pace, something, towards the end anything to move the book along.

Has Highland Healer turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

What three words best describe Derek Perkins’s performance?

Wow. Did a good job with pronunciations.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Highland Healer?

Unabridged is always better

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your time.
