The Immortal Highlander by Karen Marie Moning (Audio Edition)

Narrated by Phil Gigante
(Highlander series #6)

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 1/2  The first time I read this book I remember thinking there was a lot of  summaries of what Adam did throughout all the other highlander books. I found that a bit tedious and it made me want to skim some, because I had just read those books right before. This time however, I listened to it out of order and not while the other stories were fresh in my mind which made me enjoy it more I think.

Adam Black is a confident -to the point of cocky- Fae who thinks he's God's gift to women. So it's fun to watch him suffer a bit when Gabi won't  give it up! Gabi is a woman who's at wits end and just wants something to go right… but it's all just going wrong. She was a fun character and this story had some funny parts that made me laugh out loud. Like any Moning book… you can't go wrong. They are all good.

The narration was done well as always. Gigante is great with his different voices.. however, the lazy, drawling voice he used for Adam, while I agree, it is probably exactly how Adam would sound.. wasn't my favourite.  If you have not read this series. I highly recommend it -on audio or book form- both are fantastic! 


Here's the blurb:

BEWARE:
LETHALLY SEDUCTIVE ALPHA MALE OF IMMENSE STRENGTH AND DARK EROTICISM. DO NOT LOOK AT HIM. DO NOT TOUCH HIM. DO NOT BE TEMPTED. DO NOT BE SEDUCED....


With his long, black hair and dark, mesmerising eyes, Adam Black is Trouble with a capital T. Immortal, arrogant, and intensely sensual, he is free to roam across time and continents in pursuit of his insatiable desires. That is, until a curse strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible, a cruel fate for so irresistible a man. Now Adam's only hope for survival is in the hands of the one woman who can actually see him.

Enter law student Gabrielle O'Callaghan. For Gabrielle, cursed with the ability to see both worlds, Mortal and Faery, it is the beginning of a long, dangerous seduction. But as Adam's quest to regain his immortality plunges them into a world of timeless magic, the price of surrender could be their very lives. Unless they can thwart the conspiracy that threatens both Mortal and Faery realms...and give them a shot at a destiny few mortals ever know: glorious, wondrous, endless love...
