Great Story!

Any additional comments?

I'm a huge Tanya Anne Crosby fan...I've read this story twice & enjoyed the audio that much more. It was short enough for me to listen to while decorating for Christmas. The best part of audio is that I don't "race" through the words to get to the story...they are all there to enjoy to the end. I highly recommend this audio version.

Great Story - Outstanding Performance!

What made the experience of listening to Once Upon A Highland Legend the most enjoyable?

I love listening to Scottish accents, and James Gillies did a fantastic job with that. Then to hear him speak the Gaelic words that I have no idea how to pronounce - well, I was totally entranced!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Once Upon A Highland Legend?

Several memorable moments in the story stand out, but there were two that really got me. The first one was Callum's declaration of his intent to marry Annie after their romantic interlude, and the second was when he decided that if Annie had to die then it would be by his hand.

What about James Gillies’s performance did you like?

I liked everything about James Gillies's performance. I hadn't heard him before so I hoped his narration was good, but it was even better than expected. His ability to switch from British narration to American character to Scottish character, and then add in the Gaelic - he was just awesome! His emotional treatment of the characters and his pacing were most appropriate and kept me involved with the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The one moment that will stay with me is when Callum called Annie, "mo chroi." Knowing that it meant "my heart," it was good to read in the book but so much better hearing it spoken. I might have melted just a little bit, right then.

Any additional comments?

Once Upon A Highland Legend: Guardians of the Stone is such a good story, and even better when hearing it performed by James Gillies. I hope to hear more of his work, especially if that means I can hear his Scottish accent again!

Good for mixed company.

I enjoyed this book. It was light hearted. with adventure and entertaining characters. Easy to follow.Graphic romance was minimal. It was more about the story and only nessasery romance. I will listen to this over and over.

Best Audiobook Ive ever heard

Would you consider the audio edition of Once Upon A Highland Legend to be better than the print version?

Yes. The narrator did a lovely job and the accents were great. Some places had me laughing out loud.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the plot and the storyline. I haven't read many time traveling books but how the woman describes what is going on around her I just found hilarious at times.

What about James Gillies’s performance did you like?

His ability to offer the listener a variety of accents.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud several times!

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended

Mesmerizing time-travel!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would highly recommend this audio to everyone, especially readers who love audios and time-travel. What an amazing fun novella "Once Upon a Highland Legend”, written by Tanya Anne Crosby, was to listen to. Some scenes are so funny because of the time period difference that I laughed out loud, like the one when Callum meets Annie for the first time, looking at her with her red J-string, so cute! And her modern comments and his, in his Scottish burr, were to die for! It’s a fantastic short time travel

What was one of the most memorable moments of Once Upon A Highland Legend?

There were so many fun moments!I love everything about this book, the time travel in the past, the chemistry between Annie and Callum, the plot..

Have you listened to any of James Gillies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first time that I listen to an audio narrated by James Gillies. He has the perfect voice for this story! His different tones for the female voices, specially for Annie, was formidable. I just loved his Scottish burr! The intonation was perfect. What can I say! Tanya Anne Crosby chose the ideal narrator for her novella.I will highly recommend him to my other author friends.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I listen to it with my earphones, and laughed out loud...during some scenes. some were sad...

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this audio, you won't be disappointed!

Excellent Story!!!<br /><br />

I listened to this book straight through without stopping even once. Loved the story so much, disappointed that it came to an end so soon. I only wish I could continue to hear more of Annie and Callums love story.
