Publisher's Summary

For the first time on audio, here is number one New York Times best-selling author Karen Marie Moning’s novella Into the Dreaming, a tale of Highland fantasy, star-crossed lovers, and the timeless manipulation of the ancient, immortal Unseelie king. This is Moning at her romantic, funniest finest.
Free him from his ice-borne hell....
Stolen from his beloved home in the Highlands of Scotland, imprisoned in the Unseelie king’s dark, frosty kingdom, Aedan MacKinnon endured centuries of torture before becoming the icy, emotionless Vengeance, the dark king’s dispatcher of death and destruction in the mortal realm.
And in his century you both may dwell....
Aspiring romance novelist Jane Sillee has always believed that she was born in the wrong century, but she’s managed to make a decent enough life for herself - if only she could stop having those recurring dreams about a man too perfect to exist.
In the Dreaming you have loved him....
Haunted every night of her life by a devastatingly sexy Highlander who comes to her while she sleeps, Jane tries to write him out of her head and heart. As a child he protected her, as a woman he loves her.
Now in the Waking you must save him....
When an ancient tapestry bearing the likeness of her beloved Highlander arrives on her doorstep, Jane is whisked back in time to fifteenth-century Scotland, to the castle of Dun Haakon on the isle of Skye, where she is given one chance to save her dream lover... or lose him forever to the Unseelie king.
Caught in a deadly game between the light and dark courts of the Fae, Jane must find a way through the ice to the heart of her Highander. But will the love of one mortal woman be enough to defeat such ancient and ruthless immortal enemies?

Short but sweet!

What did you love best about Into the Dreaming?

KMM's writing and Phil Gigante's narration


Who was your favorite character and why?

Aiden or Vengeance, whatever you want to call him


What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

What's NOT to like? His voice is AMAZING ~ he's very smooth and reads exactly as it's written. I hate when narrators emphasize in wrong places, or pause where they shouldn't...he NEVER does that. He's consistent w/ his character voices, and while his women's voices are a little syrupy, lol, I have to remember how deep and amazing his voice is for the males and how hard that is to translate into a female.


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

I did. It was pretty short ~ I'd read it before.


Any additional comments?

Yes ~ this was a cute novella that was part of the beginning of the crossover from KMM's Highlander series to her Fae/Fever series. Anyone who has read on and not the other is missing out, because she most definently sets up for her Fever series in the Highlander books. I gave it a 4 because it was WAY short, and for the $$ thought it was a little steep. It wasn't that I didn't like the writing ~ she's writes amazing books.

In this, Aiden/Vengeance has been locked aways in the Unseelie King's realm for 500 yrs and is allowed out for one month ~ if in that month he finds love and is loved in return, he will be free. He and Jane Sillee have been meeting in the dreaming since she was a child, but he's been frozen for so long he's forgotten everything, so it's Jane's job to remind him.

VERY short story to do that in!

Ahhh ..... it's short but oh sooooo good!!!

This could be a stand alone listen but, if you haven't already listened to her Highlander series, I would treat yourself and start downloading the entire series today. Anything she writes is an automatic download for me and this series has been just awesome.

Coupled with great time travelling stories, Phil Gigante brings all of Karen's books to life and his Scottish accents are so sexy and spot on (and I'm Scottish), I love his voice, its one of the best on Audible.

Worth the credit? - Hell yes.
