Loved this as much as the first!

Different Narrator, different storyline but still as wonderful as the previous book.

I couldn't understand "Why?" after listening to the previous book; why change the narrator? Book 1 was told from a female perspective, Book 2 from a male. Both as good in the narration, so please don't let that put you off reading book 2.

This is an emotional story ( I did cry once .... ok maybe every other chapter, I was to engrossed to count! ).

I don't like spoilers, so won't give any away!
I will say that this author has a wonderful way of writing and that I feel as if she may have lived before and heard these tales as a child while sat around a great fire, listening to a Clan Chief

Narrator brought this lovely story to life. Can't wait to listen to next in the trilogy.

One of those rare and lucky finds that has you feeling as if you're transported to the place and time. The narrator is perfect in delivering an exciting, at times funny and heartfelt, emotional storyline.

I'll definitely be looking at other books by this Author in the near future.

I felt every emotion listening to this book. The narrator was great. The story line was beautiful, heartbreaking, the passion was believable and even the HEA had a twist. I felt so emotional after listening to this it was worth the time and and credit.
