This is a very interior novel. It has some lovely literary elements to it and I did enjoy it. The atmosphere is seductive and gripping, and the character is nicely developed.
However, I found the narration hard to cope with. The Scottish brogue is thick and unremitting and, to my ears, somewhat artificial. Reynolds does Irish and Northern English accents very well, but his Scottish burr leaves something to be desired.
I suggest you listen to the audio sample provided to see if it works for you.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Refuge to be better than the print version?
I didn't read print version.
Would you be willing to try another book from Craig Robertson? Why or why not?
Maybe. It would have to catch my attention to start. The author has a good telling ability but very long-winded in parts and it made me lose attention. I almost gave up after the first hour of listening because there were so many non-necessary details. Once we finally got to the story it was much better.
What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Pretty adept at changing his voice to meet the character accents. Usually good...sometimes annoying and he slips in and out occasionally.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
What would you NOT do for love?
