Publisher's summary

The fifth book in the captivating series which follows the lives of Beth and Alex MacGregor, their family, and friends.

The rebellion is over. Prince Charles is in hiding, the Jacobite clans are scattered to the four winds, and in Inverness, the Duke of Cumberland plans a brutal retribution against the Highlanders who rose against his father. His intention: to ensure they can never rise again.

Alex, knowing Beth to be dead, leads his men into a vicious war of attrition against the British Redcoats, who have destroyed everything in life he ever held dear. Only his desire for revenge keeps him alive.

Meanwhile, the Duke of Cumberland is hatching a plan that he is confident will reveal the true identity of Sir Anthony Peters, the man who made a fool of the king, the duke, and all society. A man he wishes to capture alive, more than anyone else.

Join the continuing rebellion of the MacGregors and their fight for revenge and survival in The Jacobite Chronicles.

Super awesome historical fiction

I love these stories because they are well written and historically accurate
Most historical fiction bends the history to the story, but Ms Brannon’s work weaves her fictional character into the true history. I particularly loved and hated this book. I didn’t like all the torture scenes, but they were factual and represented the treatment at the time. I also loved it that the ultimate outcome was one I would have hoped for!

Absolutely exquisite series!!

I was very excited when this next book in the series was released in audio! Jacobite Chroniclesis a shining example of what Historical Romance can be! Julia Brannan has done her research and beautifully weaves her wonderful story with her vibrant, complex characters into historically accurate occurrences and people from that time in history. Pursuit of Princes begins after the Battle on Culloden Moor, in a time of absolutely devastating loss and absolutely abhorrent treatment of the Scottish people following the rising. The characters we have grown to love throughout this series are struggling mightily to recover from seemingly insurmountable odds. I experienced the full gambit of emotional responses throughout this book and cannot wait to see what happens next in this exciting adventure!

Let’s talk about the performances! Wow! Duet narration (Will voicing all of the male parts and Lucy voicing all of the female parts) is my jam, and Will Watt once again delivered phenomenal flawless performances of multiple accents ranging from Scottish with exquisite Gaelic to multiple British accents representing the varied ages, social classes, and regions. Just WOW! Lucy Rayner is a new narrator to me and she did an excellent job! I look forward to listening to more of her work.

I am anxiously awaiting the next book so I can find out what happens to all of these wonderful characters! I very highly and enthusiastically recommend this entire series!

Even the bad female narrator couldn’t ruin this great book

I changed my review to a five star review, because I decided that even though the female narrator was painful to listen to it wasn’t enough to bring the overall rating down from the five. The story and the writing are just excellent. I’m looking forward to reading the sixth and final book even if I have to listen to her do the female voice again.

Five Stars, but it was a near miss!

I am delighted by Julia Brannan's historical pieces that she tags on at the end of each book in this series. Until then, I believed the story was taking a departure from accurate events and becoming just a wonderful tale created in order to continue our protagonists' story. But nothing of the sort is going on! What an eyeopener to realize that so many of the new characters introduced into the story were actual people and how Beth's ordeal was able to fit seamlessly into their slot in history. I've gained even more respect for Julia's meticulous research.

As for the things Alex and his family continued to experience, would have been so typical of what other survivors of Culloden went through. The aftermath was brutal under the direction of blood-thirsty, greedy commanders.

I had a hard time giving this book five stars, however, because Rosalyn Landor has left the studio. Her replacement was a bitter disappointment. There is a distinct lack of chemistry between the two narrators and it caused the presentation to suffer. I gave the five stars because Will Watt carried it with his amazing voice and that made up for the poor performance by the new female narration. Julia's remarkable story with the support of Watt made it a not-to-miss event!

Another great installment

Another great book in the series. Having come to love many of the characters in these books, the last two brought me almost to tears on more than one occasion. Will M. Matt was born for this series, and especially the portrayal of Alex/Anthony. His performance has been outstanding on every level. Lucy Raynor has a nice voice but there isn’t much if any variation in characters.

female narrator - UG

if they had let this female narrator read to Beth she would have given up all of the clans and Alex too. torture to listen to her. I'll finish the story but only because I don't want to not finish. O.M.G.
