Destined to become ueen of Scotland Bound by blood to the Celtic gods Scotland 1026 Gruoch descendant of the line of MacAlpin should have been born into a life of The Time It Never Rained ease But fate is fickle Her father's untimely death rud to have been plotted by King Malcolm leaves her future uncertain and stained by the prophecy that she will avenge her family line Escaping to one of the last strongholds of the old Celtic gods Gruoch becomes an ad. Ef not to mention threatens the tension in the story because there s very few who actually have power than she does To be honest I think the story would have been better if Gruoch had not been an incarnation of Cerridwen or Boudicca She already hadnough going on with joining a coven and becoming a Wyrd sister not to mention being born so close to the crown That s nough specialness for anyone to handleAnd then there were the sex scenes which were too heavy on the purple the sex scenes which were too heavy on the purple for my tastes and didn t seem To Fit With The fit with the of the rest of the storyI also wanted to mention that I initially started this book as an audiobook but uickly switched to a standard book because I didn t njoy the narratorI guess I won t be continuing with this series4 out of 10 OK I have to confess I got this book because of the cover Highlands stone circle my Outlander loving heart just started beating faster Then when I started reading I couldn t stop Celtic mythology the old ways Scotland and magicI was lost in time and could have stayed hidden in the coven forever The story was over way too soon and now I just can t wait to follow this raven on her journey onward Thank you Melanie for lifting the veil and showing me the ways of the Goddess The End Bambi Nooooooooooo It can t be overFrantically checking Audible to see if the next book is out No Gah flailsIt s been a while since I had that reaction to the Childrens Phantasies end of a book but I was utterly captivated by Highland Raven It was just so so magical for lack of a better word And I can t saynough good things about the narrator Lesley Parkin She really did a "fabulous job with the accents and tenor of the story she brought all "job with the accents and tenor of the story she brought all characters and the setting to life with a lyrical cadenceSo this story is about Shakespeare s Lady MacBeth with some paranormal twists Now it has been many years since I read Shakespeare in school so I really can t much about the correlation between this story and Shakespeare And I could really care less the storylines meshed or not I was thoroughly ntertained by Melanie Karsak s talePledged to the Morrigan at her birth by her vengeance driven father our heroine is known by many names Gruoch Corbie Boudica Cerridwen Lady MacBeth She is of the royal line of MacAlpin with ties to the thrones of Scotland and Ireland Cerridwen s family follows the old Gods at a time when Christianity is sweeping the land so the story is full of Celtic and Pictish rituals and mythology But Karsak weaves ven magic into the story with fae interludes prophecy wizardry and travel between realms I liked Cerridwen as our warrior woman heroine I loved that she was capable and curious and The Soviet Union emotional At this point I m not really seeing Cerridwen as Lady MacBeth she is a young girl who is stretching her wings literally to learn family traditions and cope with her fate as best she canI am not usually a fan of the love triangle but this one has me uite intrigued I was veryxcited by Cerridwen s visions of a raven haired man with Gods and Heroes eyes full of love I thought I had anpic love story on my hands But then along comes Banuo who had a special connection to Boudica as Prasutagus We see a lot of soul magic happening and it appears that Cerridwen and Banuo have been reconnecting time and again through Science, Technology and Culture each life So not remembering much MacBeth at the time I was confused as to whose team I should be on I think this allowed me to really feel the same conflict that Cerridwen was feeling when she had the soul deep connection on one hand but was still curious about the raven haired man from her visions on the other handThis storynded on a cliffhanger and I absolutely cannot wait to see what s next in store for Cerridwen and MacBeth I only wish these stories were longer because I was not ready for this one to No Beast So Fierce end While I am sure reading the story in print is great I highlyncourage you to give it a shot in audio because the narrator is fantasticI received a copy of this audiobook at no cost from the author in xchange for an honest review Full review posted at Bambi Unbridled.
