Publisher's Summary

Scotia MacAlpin may be only eighteen years old, but she's no stranger to trouble. Her latest incident - which resulted in a death and forced her clan into battle - has made her an outcast among her exiled people. Scotia is tired of being ignored and overshadowed by her sister, a gifted Guardian of the Targe, and she's become hell-bent on destroying the army out to capture the ancient Highland relic for their English king.

Duncan of Dunlairig has looked out for Scotia since she started to walk. She was as restless and reckless then as she is now - only the stakes have become higher and more perilous. While the rest of Clan MacAlpin ostracizes her, Duncan secretly helps Scotia become the warrior she yearns to be. But the real test of her skills may come when he needs her help - and her long-forgotten heart - in this thrilling and romantic Guardians of the Targe tale.

A thrilling twist!

I really love this conclusion to a wonderful trilogy. This story explored a myriad of human emotions,and battle strategy. However, the exciting and thrilling twist is a most satisfying conclusion. My thanks and appreciation to narrator Phil Gigante for making each and every character come alive, I was transported into the world of the Guardians themselves. I very highly recommend this book and the whole trilogy.

absolutely have to read this book

Would you consider the audio edition of Highlander Redeemed to be better than the print version?

I have not seen the printed version so I cannot say if it is but I love it I love audio books would love to see more done by this author

What did you like best about this story?

I really liked how school she had to find her way and the struggle she went through

Which scene was your favorite?

when Scotia knew all of the meanings and what all the blessings were saying and how that help them create the true barrier and that it took all three and their differences to create the true Targe

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when Scotia was tied up and realized why her actions cause problems which made it so she became were they to be a guardian

Sometimes a good narrator isn't enough

I purchased this book because I love Phil Gigante as a narrator.* And, his performance was fantastic, as usual....but I still couldn't stomach the protagonist, to the point where I didn't finish the last 3 hours of this audiobook. (It takes a lot for me to quit a book without finishing it, but this particular one apparently had what it takes.)

Scotia is a bratty, spoiled, self-centered twit, with, as far as I can tell, neither any redeeming qualities nor desire to get over herself and grow the heck up.** First, ugh. Who wants to listen to a book where you can't stand the main character, and constantly want to smack her? Second, the romance aspect to this book is just plain creepy...Scotia acts like such a child that how can a grown man desire her? It just makes Duncan seem kind of like a pedophile. Ewww.

This was my first foray into Ms. Wittig's work, and based on these characters, whom even my very favorite narrator ever couldn't save, I'm not sure I'll get anything else of hers anytime soon.

*As Mr. Gigante did not narrate the earlier two books, I started with this one. However, I'm not sure I would have liked the first two books in the trilogy either, as the women who were clearly the main characters in those (Rowan and Jeanette) are self-important prigs, at least in this book.

**Full disclosure: I currently have two teenaged daughters, so my tolerance for bratty teenaged girl behavior is admittedly at an all-time low.

Good ending to the trilogy!

It was lovely hearing Scotia's story. I loved the to and fro of her growing pains as she finally woke up and smelled the coffee! Alas poor Duncan and his epic patience. A good entertaining book with lots of action and sound flow to the story. Very enjoyable! Oh, and, Phil Gigante's lady voice? That always cracks me up!
