A centuries-old curse, a mysterious amulet, and a young love reignite a vendetta that had died down long ago…When seventeen-year-old Samantha goes on a school-exchange trip to Scotland, she takes with her an old pendant that she found amongst her grandmother's belongings. As soon as she arrives at her host family's home, she is drawn into the country's tales and myths. Then she meets the dangerously attractive Scot Payton - a mysterious Highlander who soon conquers Sam's heart. Caught up in her feelings, she doesn't realize how much danger she's in. Payton's past holds a dark secret. A secret that has bound together both their families' fates for hundreds of years and is now also endangering Sam's life.

"Intriguing and well written"
The book is good but I had to take some breaks during this because the accents were sooo thick. She did a great job with this book and bringing it to life. Ready for the next.
"Angsty, Emo, Teen Drama"
Was this written by a seventeen year old? Or younger?
Through most of the book this was about 3 stars. It was full of the drama of a stuck up, self centered 17 year old girl in the throes of her first love. Of course her love is like no other. She loves him with all her heart and will forever! Then her heart is broken. No one ever felt such pain. This book is so trite and dramatic.
But then the end comes and it drops to 2 stars. I cannot believe the stupidity. I thought the girl was of average intelligence but at the end she is a complete idiot. I could barely stand to finish it and nothing could convince me to listen to the rest of the series.
As for the narrator. She did well. My only complaint was she was so accurate in portraying the whiney, emo girl perfectly. It was so annoying.
"Good start and end, but..."
Well, I'm not a writer and I'm not the best person to suggest changes in the plot. But, the story start very well, very exciting. After some chapter, the story gets predictable and annoying. However on the end, we have a change of events and the story gets interesting.
Probably yes, because we have good moments.
I like Justine Eyre, and I think she did a wonderful job, as Always.
I don't know... maybe could be adapted for tv.... I think could be interesting.
"A good mythological roman"
It is really a rather romantic story, with a touch of scottish story and mythology. Curious that it was written by a german writer. The narration adds some local climeate. Good entertainment.
"loved this book"
loved this book. good narrative. hope narrator. made my two hour drive to work manageable
Absolutely loved this book! I now want to find the hard copy to add to my collection of favourites! Can't wait to continue on to the next book in the series!
Did not like the readers pronunciation of many words, the way she ended words and sentences through her nose. Will not buy any more audios by Justine Eyre. Story was mediocre and predictable.
What???? Like go to Scotland???.
