But will the love of one mortal woman be enough to defeat such ancient and ruthless immortal enemies? What did you love best about Into the Dreaming? KMM’s writing and Phil Gigante’s narration. Who was your favorite character and why? Aiden or Vengeance, whatever you want to call him. What’s NOT to like? I hate when narrators emphasize in wrong places, or pause where they shouldn’t Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Anyone who has read on and not the other is missing out, because she most definently sets up for her Fever series in the Highlander books.
He and Jane Sillee have been meeting in the dreaming since she was a child, but he’s been frozen for so long he’s forgotten everything, so it’s Jane’s job to remind him. VERY short story to do that in! This could be a stand alone listen but, if you haven’t already listened to her Highlander series, I would treat yourself and start downloading the entire series today.
Anything she writes is an automatic download for me and this series has been just awesome. Coupled with great time travelling stories, Phil Gigante brings all of Karen’s books to life and his Scottish accents are so sexy and spot on and I’m ScottishI love his voice, its one of the best on Audible.
This one is really short. Dreamibg it starts, mostly predictable. But its a necessary piece to understand all that happens to enable the Fever series to start.
Still worth a listen.
INTO THE DREAMING by Karen Marie Moning | Kirkus Reviews
Phil does a great job. I typically don’t purchase short stories in audio format because they are simply too short for the money – but since Karen Marie Moning has become an automatic buy for me, I gave this one a try and am glad I did. First, let me say that Phil Gigante could probabaly read the phone book and I would buy it, so I was predisposed to like the narrator. While this is listed as book 7. Each book in the HIghlander series adds new people, backstories and plots that ultimately make up the interconnected story lines involving the relationships between KMM’s fae and Scottish Highlander characters – both in the past and in the present – most recently revisited in her “Fever” series.
Without giving away what is a fairly traditional plot – SPOILER ALERT – the characters are “introduced” while they are dreaming and when they finally meet Jane has a short period of time to convince the Highland warrior Aedan that they know one another so that his destiny is changed.
Not the best book in the series, but good if you buy it understanding that this is a short story with minimal character development and plot. Take a writter, a highlander, an evil UnSeelie King and a loving heart, then let Karen Marie Moning mix it all together and weave it into a tale that will grab your attention and keep it from beginning to end. From her mind the Highlander and Fever book series were born.
Taking amazing highland romance and leading you into a world of her own creation intk with myth, legend, magic, mysterytreachery and yes, romance, Karen Marie Moning is a master!
