Brennus

It is very much like her previous time travel book and is very confusing as it takes place in the keep that her last series took place in. Need new material. So much so I’m returning the two books I bought as I was hoping for new inspired reading.

Had me hooked from the start

This audiobook had me hooked from the start! It is intriguing and enthralling with time travel, mystery, danger, magic, romance, and passion. Ms. Hunter is pretty much the only author who can really engage me with her time travel romances, mostly because they are so much more than love stories. There is always some mystery, magic, and adventure that makes it more than a simple tale of love and passion, although there is always plenty of that, too! The narration is wonderful. I love the accents and the delivery. Mr. Macleod really brings the characters to life. I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook from the author and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Won't let me post a bad review!

Story hard to get into. Narration stilted & over done. Excessive violence... rude crude sex scenes... the whole thing lacked character & true heart! And then an abrupt & unfulfilling ending. I'm sorry I wasted a credit on this trash! Disappointing

Love it!

I love how the narrator of this series brings these characters to life. Brennus is probably one of my favorite books in this series and the narrator brought him to life perfectly. You feel everything the characters feel and experience what they experience and I love being able to do that. I cannot wait to listen to the next book in the series!

Great Book!

Althea went to Scotland to study the plants. Brennus, and his men are brought back to life. Brennus and Aithea have a rough start in their relationship. Althea escapes him, to assist the other women. The Druids, and the giants have captured the women.. These women are Druids, and their captors want to use their powers. This book is full of suspense, action, and passion. The narrator did a fantastic job of voicing the characters. His voice is wonderful in his dictation, and character. You need to read this book!

This is a new series and it's amazing I got pulled in fast and I never wanted it to end! It's epic Althea is a women from our time she may look like Scottish with her red hair but as soon as she spoke everyone. They knew where was American in front of them. She is a field botanist and came to Scotland to study the plants for meds. Murdian and Hendry are both evil druids. They were made immoral so they could not be reborn into another body as all the other druids do. They were cursed then they were imprisoned in the storr by Bhaltair Flen a Drud. Only after 1000s of years they got freed. After that they freed their evil army, to open the druid passage home they Kidnapped 5 women with druid blood to take them all back in time Chieftain Brennus of the clan skaraven and his men have been brought back to life again. And what an interesting group of men! Can't tell more it will give stuff away but wow. Fantastic story amazing action full of mystery, intrigue, suspense, betrayal, and so much more it is mind blowing. I love the characters so easy to connect to and fall in love with! I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next book in the series. If you love scots, time travel, amazing twists and turns then this is your new favorite story.

Brennus - I love listening to this book.

I have listened to a few other books by Hazel Hunter and Narrated by William Macleod and they both disappoint. Ms Hunter brings her characters to light and with William narrating the story it makes it so much more enjoyable. Brennus is an immortal highlander who was awaken from the dead when the druids bring him and his clan back to life to help them fight Murdian and Hendry who are both evil druids. Murdian and Hendry imprisoned by Bhaltair Flen a drud. but after 1000s of years they got freed. In the process of getting free they kidnapped five women who has druid blood and take them back in time to use them to get rid of the other druids. Brennus and his clan are the only people who can destroy them so Bhaltair Flen requested their help but they are not playing nice because of the things that were done to them in the past. Althea is one of the women that were taken from the future and she finds herself among 4 other women wondering what is going to happen to them. Althea finds a chance to escape from the evil druds but she finds herself imprisoned by Brennus until they figure out that she was not going to hurt them. This story has a lot of action some mystery but also leaving you wondering what is going to happen next. I received a free copy of this audible book for an honest review.

Highlander

Ms Hunter is the one author to get people interested in reading this genre. The wait for Brennus's book to come out was well worth it. There are emotional times but there were some funny moments. Althea Jarden, a botanist doctor was gathering samples of ferns to find a cure for a disease that killed her Uncle. During her field work, she was kidnapped along with 4 other women by Murdian and Hendry the evil druids and their giants. Chieftain Brennus Skaraven and his clan died in a battle but they were resurrected by Balthair Flen to fight evil druids and the giants. They were strongest warrior clans and now they are also immortal. Althea with the help of the other women escaped to get help but along the way she was captured. Brennus came to her aid and fought the giants. Brennus and others from the clan have never been emotionally or physically close to a woman and now they are seeking sexual release. Althea has always shied from relationships but after meeting Brennus she thought he may be able to change her mind. Althea convinced Brennus and his clan to save the other women and during the fight, she was captured again. By the time Brennus got there, it was too late. I highly recommend this book to a few of my friends that I know like this gene, I can hardly wait for Cadeyrn's story. William Macleod as the narrator for these stories has been the ultimate choice. He just brings these stories alive.

Can a Highland Warrior find love and save his clan

Hazel Hunter continues her Immortal Highlander Series with the Skaraven clan. She brings a new enemy along with its soldiers to battle these trained from birth warriors who have never been around actual women. The story takes place in 14th century Scotland. The clan must deal with the first woman in their midst along with the enemy. They must work through their prior way of living as start their new lives. Althea Jarden is a doctor of botany working to find a cure for the infection that killed her beloved uncle who raised her and told that she has a heart of ice. While searching for specific ferns for research she is kidnapped by 2 evil druids and their army of giants along with 4 others and used to go back to 14th century Scotland. As she is being taken she sees a shadow of a man trying to help her. With the help of her fellow kidnap victims she escapes and is about to be captured when some one comes to her aid and when he's overpowered she goes to help him by using the power she didn't realize she had. Brennus takes her back to the keep and the shaman works to heal her. Brennus realizes she's the woman he saw and hasn't been able to forget. He & his clan won't help her at first to save the other women until she makes them realize that they're supposed to protect all people. As Brennus and Althea get closer she learns more about the clan and how they were raised and their ways and works to help them adjust to having a woman around and living their new lives after being resurrected. They plan a mission to rescue the other 4 women from the evil druids and their army. Althea is recaptured and uses her druid power to help Brennus and the clan only to die in the process. Brennus and Althea have fallen in love and he doesn't know what he'll do with out her. He gave her his ring and when it starts to glow he and the clan are thrown back and the spell that brought the Skaraven clan back to life is what bought her back. Meanwhile the druid who wanted their help betrayed them so that they would keep fighting the enemy. Honestly I was a little lost because I thought that there would be some small connection to the other books in the Immortal series but there was no mention of them. Once I got into the book I was hooked and I look forward to reading the next installment Caderyn. I wonder which of the druidesses will be rescued next. Will the War Master's heart soften more when he finds his own woman to love. I look forward to finding out.

Brilliantly written Time-Travel Romance

Wow!! What an incredibly imaginative tale, I was wholly impressed and immersed from the start right to the end. It's cleverly written with incredible world-building. Hazel Hunter has done an impressive job captivating the readers/listeners with her creativity. This time-travel romance has it all, magic, passion, intensity and action, hero and heroine that you root for, and pitiless villains that you loathe. The icing on the cake is the superhot, immortal Scottish warriors with amazing abilities. Kudos to Ms. Hunter. The main characters are, Brennus, the chieftain of Clan Skaraven, he is from 2000 years ago, and Althea a Ph.D. Scientist is from our time. The two meet in 14th century Scotland. They have a passionate connection, and their chemistry is charged. I relished listening to every minute of their story. The various characters that were introduced, and will appear throughout the series, are all intriguing and complex. Honestly, I can't wait for more of the Immortal Highlander Clan Skaraven series. I can just tell from the first book the series is going to be loaded with twists, turns, mystery, and intrigue. William Macleod's performance is outstanding; his telling with his Scottish brogue will sweep you away and draw you into this story. I was delighted to hear him bring the book to life. Overall, Brennus is an engaging story; it's well-plotted with fascinating characters and incredible narration. It was thoroughly enjoyable; I highly recommend the audiobook to all time-travel romance fans. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

A unique blend of romance genres

Hazel Hunter has managed to weave an interesting plot with threads of historical, paranormal and time travel romance. The characters are a complex blend of strength and vulnerability. There is just so much going on in the story! Althea is a scientist visiting Scotland to do research on ferns when she is captured and taken back in time to the 1400s. Brennus was the chieftain of his clan of warriors. His clan had long since died, a death achieved from fighting their enemies on behalf of the druids. In 1400s, the druids revive the Clan Skaraven to meet these enemies again. This time, however, they are armed with more than their brutal strength and experience. This time they are immortals. All these characters are skipping about in time due to the machinations of druids. However, the Clan Skaraven is no longer indentured to the druids. They are free warriors and intend to fight on their own behalf. After all, there are lasses to rescue and the potential opportunity to experience love. A good start to the series. The remaining books in the series have the potential to be very interesting! This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
