Wow! An emotionally all-over-the-place story read by a perfectly-chosen narrator. I need more of this author and this narrator in my life!
I can't stop crying!
Harper Fox is a master storyteller. She weaves words to take you to this ancient time on the North Shore where the old ways clashes with the budding of Christianity. And where enemies become life mates in every heart rendering way.
Hamish Long's spectular acting of each and every character made every word magical.
This was very well done, and as much as I can see the narrator credited with the narration is Hamish Long, he is also known to me as Rusty Coles, the narrator of Harper's A Midwinter Prince and remarkably enough, was also known as Joe Jameson back in 2014 when he narrated The Charioteer by Mary Renault, which is up next in my audio library. Hamish [Rusty/Joe]'s speech surprised me in this one though; he's really very good at accents, but it was the way he said common or garden English words that annoyed me sometimes....'other' was uvver, 'brother' was bruvver, 'the' was frequently vuh. This was quite surprising as I don't remember any of those problems with A Midwinter Prince or it's sequel The Lost Prince...anyhoo, none of it was sufficient to actually put me off listening and I'm glad I did as it brought back good memories of a great buddy read here on Goodreads in 2015 and reinforced once again what a sublime author Harper Fox is....
I loved this book when I read it and the narrator did a wonderful job bringing Caius and Fenrir to life. I loved the voices he chose for them. I don't usually go for historical books but this is Harper Fox and all of her work is amazing so she is an automatic one click for me.
