Publisher's Summary

Historian Bree Kirkland has always been in love with the past, but when she accidentally wakes an ancient Scottish warrior who's spent the past 150 years sleeping in her backyard, her present is suddenly fraught with danger. Faelan has awakened from his time travel and he's ravenous - in more ways than one. He grieves for his lost family, wondering who sent the woman to wake him. If she's a demon, he will have to kill her. If she's innocent, she's unleashed the gates of hell in her backyard. Either way, they must rely on each other to save their future.

too many twists to make sense

it started out great. then came weirdwolves and vampires. just boring and frankly overdone. i usually love mysteries but this was just silly. pick a genre and stick with it

Totally NEW twist, nothing else like it!!!!

Where does Awaken the Highland Warrior rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was the most surprisingly satisfying stories I have listened to in a long time. Ms. Clenney managed to break away from the same cookie cutter "Highland Romances" to something totally unique and intriguing.

What did you like best about this story?

The author seamlessly intertwined so many different genres into one story. It's like nothing else out there. There is something for everyone. It's got your gorgeous highland warriors in kilts (of course), some time travel, arch angels, demons, sorcerers, halflings, a heroin that's not a simpering whiner, history, mystery, and of course, some pretty good romance.

What does Susie Riddell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator did an excellent job creating believable voices for each of the various characters. She is very pleasant to listen to.

Loved the story hated the reader

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book to read but not to listen to. It is extremely disconcerting to hear a British female voice reading for characters who are a male Scot in America and an American female also in America.

What did you like best about this story?

I thought the author wrote a wonderfully believable story.

What aspect of Susie Riddell’s performance would you have changed?

Susie Riddell!! Why in the world did Audible choose this reader? She read well and gave the protagonists a decent job but makes it appear as though the whole story should take place in England. At no point was there a British character.

Any additional comments?

I'm so sad to learn that this reader did the whole series.

Love this new spin on Highlanders!!

Loved this book, the accents were not overwhelmingly ridiculous. And the love story believable. The characters were unique and fun. Overall a very realistic paranormal story. I know, it sounds like a contradiction but it works!
