Since the moment I was ripped from my mother's womb, I've been an outcast among my own kind. The Sidhe might possess magical Gifts, unbelievable wealth, and unfathomable power, but I don't want a thing to do with them. I ran away from their lands in the Highlands of Scotland when I was 11 years old, and I've never looked back. I don't need a clan. I've got my own family of highly skilled thieves who mean more to me than any Sidhe ever could.
Unfortunately for me, the playboy heir to the Moncrieffe Clan has something I desperately need. To get it back, I'm going to have to plunge myself back into that world, no matter what the consequences may be. I suppose it's just as well I have a sense of humor. I think I'm going to need it.

I didn't think it would be this good but i am pleasantly surprised, it's fast paced, witty and wow i love Integrity's bad jokes lol. She is feisty and very crafty being a thief and all. The narrative is excellent, Saskia Maarleveld is awesome, she brings the characters too life. Thank you x
The narrator did a fantastic job. I think this is the best audiobook I have listened to. A wonderful, magical and humorous story. The characters are fantastic and the fact that events play it in modern day was very fun.
Despite some negative commits I found this to be a well balanced book. It contained action, romance and a creative plot. I liked that the book had a good portion of all 3, Which is hard to find. Usually this genre is dominated by sex or no sex and all action. It also felt that it would be a good read if you were 16 or 60. In addition, the narrator did a great job for having a British accent. In some cases the accent can be to harsh and distracting but hers wasn't.
"narrator ruined it"
Was it a good book? yes. Was plot good?.. not too bad. It kept me interested and would definitely read book 2. "READ book 2". I don't think I would listen to the narrators strong accent again. I did not come across this in any of Helen Harper's other book. Saskia did a great job on them. But I had to concentrate real hard on understanding certain sentences on this one. Which is not relaxing at all. Please just read it how you normally would Saskia.
Also the corny jokes... works for my 10 year old.
"Very much a YA"
I don't know why I bought this book..it must have been a Daily Deal or 'Two Fer' .. in any case, it's going back.
I read YA at times but this didn't hold my attention at all. I won't even save it for my grand daughter, who often takes my YA picks after I'm done.
MY opinion? Save your credit and read the reviews.
"Fun like a candy bar, and about as nutritious!"
If you are looking for a fun quick read, get this book. the narration was well done (lots of great voices), and the plot moves rather quickly. The story is a bit if a romp. Lots of flirty moments, and a heroine a unique sense of humor. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon read, you don't have to work too hard. Lovable characters. This is the beginning to a fun series. The ending is definitely a cliffhanger.
I have read this series and found it interesting. However having it read to me made me sleep after a chapter or two. The voices were so relaxing.
"I like the characters. The series has potential."
I enjoyed the characters in this series. The sidhe are manipulative bastards. I hope certain people get what they deserve.
"Very creative storyline"
I really enjoyed the world created, and I really enjoyed Integrity's off the wall sense of humor. I'm going straight into the next book and looking forward to it.
can't wait to read the next book hope it's just as fun of a story as this one has been.
It keeps you hooked and wanting for more. I usually listen to audible on my way to/from work while stuck in traffic. Listening to all 3 books of this series, i found myself parked and not wanting to get our of the car, because i didnt want to stop listening. Love it. Can't wait till the 4th book comes out.
I LOVE SASKIA. Hands down, my favorite narrator of all time! She is simply amazing. I wish more books were narrated by her.
Another fantastic book by Helen Harper. I would have liked a little more world building but the book was great all the same. As for the narration , I can't honestly understand why some said it was terrible or incomprehensible. The narration was great, the Scottish accents were a lovely lilt. If you can understand Davina Porter's accents in Outlander then you won't have any issues with Saskia Maarlevelds.
"Unusual and captivating."
I did love this book. it took a little while to get into as I was getting to know the characters but once I did, it moved fast and was quite an adrenaline rush! all I would say is the reading was a little bland. I found that sentences which should have been accentuated by the narrator were at times falling a little flat. That said, it was an original storyline and I'm definitely intrigued enough to purchase the sequel!
"twist on magic"
really enjoyed ,a lovely twist on celtic magic, beautifully written
passed time very quickly well read
"Good easy listening"
I have read all four in this series. I would say good easy listening nothing exceptional but worth the money paid.
I enjoyed the byplay between the two main characters Integrity and Byron (love the name Integrity, by the way) and the father daughter relationship with Taylor. I so understanding that Bryon can not/will not see the truth.
Enough action to keep the books from being slow and enough emotion to keep the story real without reveling in anks.
I like stories that end correctly and this one did by book four.
I will check out other Helen Harper books.
omg I loved it can't wait start the next book the story was amazing thanks
"Gripping and entertaining"
A story that draws you in and keeps you interested.
The whole setup is an interesting one, including how society is organised works (or doesn't) for the different levels.
I was certainly keen to get back to it.
"Never disappointed with this author and narrator"
Another great book from Helen Harper. Great imagination and believable characters. Keeps you wanting to read the next chapter.
will definitely be listening to the rest of the series.
"very bad end"
Very bad endin I felt like the book was only half way through wen it stopped I was very disappointed coz the start of the book was good it was just starting to get very interesting and then it was over.
