Publisher's Summary

A centuries-old curse, a mysterious amulet, and a young love reignite a vendetta that had died down long ago…When seventeen-year-old Samantha goes on a school-exchange trip to Scotland, she takes with her an old pendant that she found amongst her grandmother's belongings. As soon as she arrives at her host family's home, she is drawn into the country's tales and myths. Then she meets the dangerously attractive Scot Payton - a mysterious Highlander who soon conquers Sam's heart. Caught up in her feelings, she doesn't realize how much danger she's in. Payton's past holds a dark secret. A secret that has bound together both their families' fates for hundreds of years and is now also endangering Sam's life.

Maybe the book is good? Narration is AWFUL

This narrators voice was the most grating thing I've ever heard. Super monotonous and shaky. I couldn't take it. I don't even know what this book is about-I couldn't turn my focus away from the TERRIBLE narration.

Intriguing and well written

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

The book is good but I had to take some breaks during this because the accents were sooo thick. She did a great job with this book and bringing it to life. Ready for the next.

Any additional comments?

Good read.

Cringeworthy!

The narrator ruined this for me. He make Scottish accents was so bad I could not finish the book. She would drag out the words so long. The cadence was off and just so annoying. I don't know who even let this get published that way. Unbelievable.

Teen romance

A bit too “Twilight” for my liking, but overall a decent story. Just not my cup of tea.

Good book

This book I rated a 4 star because the ending was too fast and confusing on what was happening to the charatures. It was a bit mottled. Other than that is was a fun read

Sorry

Sorry ... still laughing. I have listened to many narrators attempting Scottish accents unsuccessfully but this has to be the absolute worst! I suggest this needs to be read not listened to!
