Publisher's Summary

Caught within the horror that has become his life, Lucius Benedict waits patiently for his savior to come, preferably an angel who can ease his heart and release him from his cursed existence. When the sudden appearance of a russet-haired beauty postpones his execution, Lucius can not quite believe his luck. However, he will not waste his freedom and makes plans to prove his estranged wife died by the hand of another.  

Ella Jeffries is drawn into the pages of a mysterious book and transported back in time. The year is 1709, and the place is Aingealag Estate, tucked away in the thick haar of the Scottish Highlands. There, she rescues Lucius "Luke" Benedict, the laird of Aingealag, from the executioner's gibbet and falls under the spell of his dark gaze and sensual aura.   

However, Luke hides secrets behind his handsome facade, and the more she loves him, the more she learns of the ancient curse that shadows the castle and all those who dare live within its walls.

Can Ella save the Benedict family, or will Aingealag's shadows swallow them all whole?

In the Shadows of Angels

Ms. Kit Carson has written a great book in Lucius. I loved how she wrote such vibrant imagery. The narrator was spectacular with his Scottish accent. Gareth Richards sounded very authentic. The premise of this book was original. I enjoy good time travel books on occasion, and was pulled into this one. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would definitely listen to another by the author and narrator.

Incredible Scottish narration

The narrator did a great job with the Scottish accent. At times I couldn't totally understand what he was saying, which was the point in the scene. I would listen to this narrator anytime.
The story was a bit confusing at first because what she read differed from what she walked into. But once I just let myself go with the flow it was very good.
Ella is filled with grief when her only living relative, her grandmother dies. Her grandmother left her a book that somehow writes what she imagines her story would be. it would involve murder, mystery, ghosts and above all, love. This book somehow transports her back to 1709 in Scotland .
I recieved a free copy of this book and am giving my honest opinion.

Unique and Mysterious

This book is so unique - I’ve never read anything remotely like it. The premise is that Ella finds herself in the pages of a book and she’s writing her own adventure. The storyline was fascinating, although it did take me a while to become wrapped up in the plot. Once I was in, though, I was fully committed. The narration, to me, left a lot to be desired. It felt as if someone had a little too much found with a soundboard (doors slamming, creaky noises, etc) and the audio quality was oftentimes echo-y and with poorly controlled volume moderation. Still a good book, even if the narration was a little cuckoo. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Okay story

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I liked the story but the narrator's accent made it hard to listen to. The opening scenes made me think the story was going one way but as the story unfolded it went in another directions. The narration kept pulling me out of the story because I could not understand what was being said and had to rewind to hear it again. This was my only issue because I could not understand the accent. Overall it was a good story.
