Storm Warrior was good but missed great by quite a bit. There were too many plots going on simultaneously.....the steamy sex scenes seemed as though they belonged to another book. The Highland Warrior from 2000 years ago wasn't plausible - even the central character didn't buy it.....she ended up seeming shallow and sappy - how did she make it through Vet school? The magic was good - the final conflict was well done.
If you want Highland Warrior - read The Secret and if you want Fae read the Fairwick Trilogy......
Not moved enough to invest in the sequel.......

The author delivered on so many levels and gave an enchanting paranormal listen that told of the battle between the mythological tricky Welsh Fae and a loveable Celtic hero ensnared by them into the form of a Grim (Mastiff dogs and omens of death) for a millennium ..... until he sees Megan who literally transforms his life.
Megan, a Vet, doesn't believe in magic or the realm of the Fae even tho her Grandmother told her plenty of stories about them, and so when an Ancient, tattooed, drool-worthy naked Warrior called Rhys eventually lands on her doorstep (some girls have all the luck) she is attracted to him (well hello who wouldn't be) but she just doesn't believe his outlandish tale, thinks him insane and keeps him at arms length.
Rhys asks her for trust and to have faith in him but she stubbornly rejects him and his story but he, being a true hero type, is patient, thoughtful and kindly stays at her Ranch doing lots of odd jobs for her whilst all the time trying to entice her (what about me, me, me I believe you). This is where the story (for me) becomes irritating as Megan continually rejects him whilst still being attracted to him and no matter what he does or says it's still never enough for her.
It was an entertaining, touching, tender, funny, fast paced fantastical delightful listen with some dramatic, frightening, violent moments too and, with the inclusion of some great secondary characters, it was a very enjoyable listen and the description of the Fae's Wild Hunt was awesome. However, despite the sexy start, the romance was very slow to develop..... but it was eventually worth the wait.
Worth the credit? It definitely would have been YES but, as I've said before, anything under $10 then I just buy it and save my credit for a more costly listen.

What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?
The book is about welsh folklore and has very strong ties to wales - a lot of Welsh words which I appreciate are hard to pronounce but there whole dialogue is done in a very bad Irish accent! Not impressed

The story was ok, nothing spectacular though. More then anything though it irked me that the Welsh accents sounded distinctly Northern Irish. And it was so hard to distinguish characters via the narrationas there seemed to be only two variations. Male and Female.
I apologize for reading this second to storm bound, it was an honest mistake.
Anyhow i loved the story of Morgan the dog loving vet and Rhys our 2 millennia old Celtic warrior turned grim by the fair one *fairy*.
The only thing that gets my hackles rising *pun intended* is how annoying Morgan is for not believing Rhys story, I meant come on her own grandma was from Welsh and has the sight told her countless times and still she refused to believe? well apart from that the story is great i loved the word building.
I will also apologise for not thanking Justine Eyre in her magnificent narrative, she made the story comes alive and her voice us amazing and totally sexy in either male or female portrayal. Thanks to you both Dani and Justine for this amazing story. xoxo
interesting book , wish the last stand was a bit longer, other than that it was ok..
not really sure if I will listen to the rest..
