Macey is really quite ordinary, if you ignore that she's a kelpie princess living on land. Still, her life is boring until she gets kidnapped by a man who doesn't quite know why he kidnapped her. Try and figure that one out.

Thankfully, he and his two companions are prepared to help her find out why she can't return to Earth from their house in the Mists. Now the only problem is that Macey keeps getting distracted by the three mysterious and very sexy men....

A unique and interesting start to the series!

Normally, I'm not a fan of a male narrator reading a book that is told from the female MCs perspective, but it did not bother me with this book. The narrator is amazing. He has a Scottish accent which added so much to the story and helped with the pronunciation of a lot of the Scottish words/phrases throughout the book. This book/series is based on Scottish mythology and focuses on the Legend of the Seven Wardens for the 7 elements (fire, wind, earth, water, air, lightning, and ice). Macey is a Kelpie princess who is "accidentally" kidnapped by Camdan. She wakes up to find that she has been transported to the house that Camdan shares with Flint and Jared. She finds out that Camdan "took" her because he felt a connection to her. We eventually find out that Camdan and Flint think that she is the warden for the Water element, Camdan is the warden for Wind, Flint for Fire, and Jared (who is an incubus) is the warden for Earth. Macey is attracted to each of the men and they all decide to begin a journey to try and learn more about legend of the Seven Wardens. This is the first book of the series, so it provides some of the background information for the series storyline and it does end with a cliffhanger. For me, this storyline is a really unique storyline and introduced me to new characters and mythology that I've never read about before. Because of the uniqueness of the story, I was interested and invested in seeing how the story was going to progress. I am planning on reading the remaining books in this series. I hope that there will be audiobooks produced for the remainder of the books in the series and that the same narrator will be used for all of the books.

Loved this paranormal RH listen!

Fantastic story and characters, I was hooked from beginning to end and can’t wait for more. Plenty of action, humor, and romance. Loved the narrator! It was my first time listening to this narrator and I certainly hope it won’t be the last. I loved listening to his performance and the different voices he used for each character. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Absolutely Amazing!!!!

"From the Deeps" reminds me why Paranormal Romance is one of my favorite genres. I'll admit, I don't usually go for reverse harems, but this one intrigued me. I was a bit hot and cold with Macey, but I loved each of the guys, Cam, Flint, and Jared. Each personality was different and distinct. Kudos to Angus Yellowlees for being an amazing narrator! The personalities he applied to each character was well done and this story got me through my day!

Such a great storyline

There is so much to take in with this book. It’s explained so well, I didn’t get lost where I find sometimes I lose the storyline in other books with so many different characters and powers. This is written so well. Angus is a new narrator to me and he delivered so well.

More than the sum of it's parts

I've read several books by both authors and for those of you that have done the same: they really have bought out the best in one another here. The plot is meatier, the supporting characters have more depth, it's steeped in gaelic lore and has more steam than I've experienced in any of their solo writes I've read!

It's a bit weird having a male narrator read from a woman's POV, but he has an amazing, droolworthy voice.

There is a sense of it building to something greater throughout the book and I know it's the first of a larger series so I look forward to reading/listening to more.

My Thoughts on From the Deeps

This reverse harem story was set in a world of different magical creatures.

I'm a fan of all the different creatures coming together and contributing their own special part to things. It's what I love about RH too. That each character contributes something special to the relationship.

The overall plot of this story was good. And it was told in an interesting, entertaining way. It was certainly able to hold my attention. I also find myself interested in what's to come.

Angus Yellowlees was a new narrator for me. And his accent was fun to listen to. The only things I found myself wishing different was some of the scenes with other "disembodied voices" and tone variations for so many characters. I found some of the disembodied voice moments a little distracting because of how it was recorded/styled. Sometimes it pulled me out of being absorbed in the story. And then I just thought there were a lot of characters but not always enough variation on tone. You definitely have to pay attention when everyone is talking together to know who's speaking if you're listening and not reading. Overall I liked him as a narrator. I just think I'd like him even more with less parts to play.

This book is not a standalone but part of a continuing storyline and I wouldn't mind hearing more.

Great Audiobook

From the deep is a mythical adventure story with heated scenes. This is Scottish mythology with an incubus and two wraiths.

Macey is a Kelpie princess who hasn’t come into her powers yet. She lives on the land with her brothers. She’s kidnapped but all isn’t as it seems. Seven wardens are supposed to save the world, but what if they aren’t the first to answer the call. Macey needs to risk more than her heart in order to fulfil her destiny. Her mythical kidnappers hold the key to her magic. As this story unfolds we find the bond between a group of people from different backgrounds. Macey is at the centre but she needs her men for more than a distraction.

This is an adventure book. We get to explore a creative world and meet some interesting characters.

This is a reverse harem story which has adult content. It’s the first book in a series and more is to come.

I listened to this book via Audible. Angus Yellowlees reads this book well. This change in voices enhanced each of the characters voices.

I really enjoyed this book and I’m quickly becoming a Laura Greenwood groupie. Skye MacKinnon is new to me but I look forward to reading more by this author. ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Into the Deeps

A unique story about guardians and many creatures that I haven’t heard in the same story before. I really like the writing in this book. The story flows seamlessly and it is brought to life with this narrator. I will be diving into the next in this series next.

This story was great! I felt like it was a unique story with great characters. I loved that it had a bit more heat in it that I normally see in Skye's PNR. I personally thought the collaboration was great! I look forward to reading more from this duo!

Narration was great! This was the 1st I have listened to from this narrator and was not disappointed. It was well read, entertaining and clean.

Great listen! Looking forward to book 2

A delightfully unique and steamy PNR!

I'm really enjoying all the different types of fantasy creators in this book! It's nice to see something different from vampires and werewolves. it's made for a fun and unique storyline. The characters are interesting and unique. I'm excited to get started on book two!

The narrator is amazing! His accent is so sexy and he can vary from his normal tone to a deep rumble. I'm going to have to hunt down more books that he's done!

Enthralling narrator

I already enjoyed the novel but Angus Yellowlees brings this to an entirely new level. What a phenomenal narrator. The narrator does a wonderful job providing an enthralling and emotional performance.

What an amazing series!

I won this book on a Facebook giveaway. I have to say it is absolutely fabulous. This author has a wonderful and unique imagination for writing. I can’t wait for more of this series. It’s definitely a must read and you will want the next book because it’s a cliffhanger.
The narrator’s do an amazing job with the characters and I love the voice. You guys are awesome!

Intriguing

The authors and narrator were new to me and I was pleasantly surprised. This is a great start to the series! Scottish mythology, mystery, and romance all mixed together. The narrator did a wonderful job bringing the characters and the story to life.

Interesting story, narration is fantastic!

Pretty good start to a new series. The world building wasn’t the greatest and the characters need some more background but it’s only the first book. I have a feeling the next one is going to be so much better than this one. The story itself was pretty good. Parts were a bit confusing but again, first book. I am looking forward to the next book and for us to meet lightening.

The narration was fantastic. I LOVED it!
