After "Braveheart": The Saga Continues (Book 2)
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Monica McCarty's main characters actually did live in the times she has so thoroughly brought to life. Little is known of the actual details of their lives, of course, but she has masterfully woven the history into her stories and her characters' personas.
Here is the story of Erik MacSorley, one member of Robert, the Bruce's elite secret army. Half Viking, half Gael, and entirely too charming and handsome, Hawk is one of the most renowned seafarers of his time. His highly secret mission gets off to a very unpropitious start when a young woman, celebrating an ancient pagan ritual, accidently stumbles upon his meeting with the Irish mercenaries he is recruiting to Robert's army. When he does the only thing he can to save her, it very nearly destroys both him and his mission.
What other book might you compare The Hawk to and why?
First read: The Chief by Monica McCarty to get the foundation.
What about Robert McNab???s performance did you like?
His performance is improving, though he is not a master with the Irish and Scots brogues.
Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?
Yes -- near the end when Erik truly realizes the misery he has cast upon his own future.

I love this series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have only recently found Monica McCarty and her Highland Guard Series. I love Highland romance stories, but I also enjoy books when they add historical information. I recommend this book, and hope audible will add more of her books
