Publisher's Summary

Gwynn Austin has no idea why her father has disappeared on a mysterious trip to Scotland. When she goes on a desperate mission to search for him, she finds more than she bargains for in a ruggedly handsome, wickedly exciting Highlander who exudes danger and mystery. And when she discovers her own link to Scotland, she'll have to trust her heart to help lead her.

Propelled through time by powerful Druid Magic, Logan Hamilton uses his immortality and powers of the god inside him to help prevent the awakening of an ancient evil in the modern world. He never expects to find help in the form of a beautiful, alluring, and all-too-tempting woman whose passion and strength matches his own. Together, Logan and Gwynn must fight for their love - before a demon from the past destroys them both.

WELL, HELLO BOYS! TO A NEW HIGHLAND WARRIOR SERIES

Firstly, although this is the start of a new series it does follow on from DG's Dark Sword Series and I felt, not having read this series, if I had of read these previous books then it would have made more sense and this book an even more enjoyable listen as there were a few names, words or references that you are expected to know about but don't so it lost a point for this I'm afraid.

Having said all that I thought this was a great start to an exciting new series - Gwynn goes on a quest to find her missing father in Scotland only to find Logan, a kilt wearing Highland Warrior from the 1600's, instead. Logan agrees to help Gwynn and their two quests become one.

Looking forward to listening to Midnight Lover which is book 2 and I hope Audible puts the Dark Sword series into their Library too.

Worth a credit? Great characters, a nice sexy romance and, of course, your hunky Highlander - what's not to like - so it's a YES from me.

Mixed Review

Although I did enjoy this book, it would have been so much better if I had read the original Dark Swords series. Dark Warriors is apparently a spin-off. At first the story didn't make much sense and I was confused by some of the players, names and other references to previous storylines. However, as the book went on I started to "catch-up" to the story and by the end I had it all figured out. Unfortunately, due to the confusing start and boring narrator I can only give this one 3.5 stars.

Narrator Not Good

The story is good but it could be great if not for the lack-luster, irritating narration. There are so many great narrators out there that I sometimes wonder why "just-ok" ones are used. This narrator ends so many sentences in unneccessary exclamation points that it becomes irritating. I find myself not listening and having to rewind and repeat sections. It takes this potentially great book and just makes it ok. I'm disappointed because I bought it based on a stellar review. My 2-cents is go in with low expectations on the narrator and maybe you'll end up liking the reading. I went in with way too high of expectations and am really disappointed. Maybe you'll like this. Maybe you'll feel like me and be like - meh. For me I would prefer to read this rather than listen to this narrator.

Great!

Another good series. I just could not listen to the Dark Swords series.. Anthony Ferguson is just horrible as a narrator. However, this series follows right after Dark Swords. I read all the dark swords but just could not listen.

So we have Logan, an immortal warrior on the search for Ian another immortal warrior. Logan, Ian and 3 more warriors got transported to the future from the Dark Swords series. They are trying to kill the evil Druid. Confusing, yes, but it all makes sense as the story goes on. Logan meets Gwyn who is looking for her Dad in Scotland. Gwyn is a Druid and her and Logan fall in love. The Warriors always mate with a Druid throughout all the books, Dark sword and Dark Warriors.

Logan and Gwyn story is really good. I like that Gwyn did not trust Logan right away as all heroines usually do.

Good buy/credit.

Narrations was awesome. Potter is on the of Xe Sands narration.

Kinda Cheesy

This book wasn’t horrible but it was predictable and kinda Cheesy. The only way I can explain what this book reminds me of, is it is fairy tale like. I gave up on the original series, for this reason. I guess this type of book just isn’t my cup of tea.

Great Book, Poor performance

Would you listen to Midnight's Master again? Why?

No, I don't think I could listen to this book again. The narrator shounded like she was in too much of a hurry to get done. There were no pauses (like a period) between end of chapters and beginning the next chapter. I like pauses at the end of the chapter - it gets me excited to move in to the next chapter. This made me feel anxious when moving hurridly into the next chapter. I'm questioning whether I want to listen to the rest of the series just because she is the narrator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gwyn was great!

What didn’t you like about Arika Escalona’s performance?

I hated her performance. Too fast, no pauses when needed. It was a hurried performance without much inflection. Female characters almost sounded exactly alike.

Any additional comments?

I like the books, but with this narrator, I would recommend reading the books instead of listening.

RUINED BY NARRATOR!

I listened to the original series, DG's Dark Sword 1st. It was magnificent! Then following the story line I listened to this book. The change in narrator is almost unbearable. Her accent is horrible, she has no inflection in her voice, even when the scene should be very intense. Lastly, it feels as though she is rushing through the book. Breathe inbetween the chapters, build the tension. Overall, because I love this series I will finish it but if you can read the books I'd suggest it. It's not worth the disappointment listening to this narrator.

Logan and Gwynn

This is a spin-off of the Dark Sword series and takes place in modern times. The Warriors and Druids are a part of the Dark World. Midnight’s Master is the first in this new series, all the characters from the Dark Sword are present. This series was read as a part of the Audible Escape package.

This is the story of Gwynn; she is on a mission to search for her missing father but what she finds is much more. She finds out she is a Druid and a handsome Warrior named Logan. Both go looking for an artifact that will end the reign of terror an evil Druid from the past.

Juvenile and repetative.

Thoughts are described over and over. The story became repetative and boring. The premise was enticing and I was disappointed.
