I'm a huge Tanya Anne Crosby fan...I've read this story twice & enjoyed the audio that much more. It was short enough for me to listen to while decorating for Christmas. The best part of audio is that I don't "race" through the words to get to the story...they are all there to enjoy to the end. I highly recommend this audio version.
Great Story - Outstanding Performance!
I love listening to Scottish accents, and James Gillies did a fantastic job with that. Then to hear him speak the Gaelic words that I have no idea how to pronounce - well, I was totally entranced!
Several memorable moments in the story stand out, but there were two that really got me. The first one was Callum's declaration of his intent to marry Annie after their romantic interlude, and the second was when he decided that if Annie had to die then it would be by his hand.
I liked everything about James Gillies's performance. I hadn't heard him before so I hoped his narration was good, but it was even better than expected. His ability to switch from British narration to American character to Scottish character, and then add in the Gaelic - he was just awesome! His emotional treatment of the characters and his pacing were most appropriate and kept me involved with the story.
The one moment that will stay with me is when Callum called Annie, "mo chroi." Knowing that it meant "my heart," it was good to read in the book but so much better hearing it spoken. I might have melted just a little bit, right then.
Once Upon A Highland Legend: Guardians of the Stone is such a good story, and even better when hearing it performed by James Gillies. I hope to hear more of his work, especially if that means I can hear his Scottish accent again!
