Flame Height: 6" out of 9"

It's been so many years since I read this book, that with the exception of the fae fool, Adam Black, and Aoibheal (pronounced Ah-VEEL), the fae queen, (who reappear in subsequent Highlander stories) this might as well have been a new release. Yes, the story has a few flaws that stretch credibility, but just go with 'em, okay? It's a swoon worthy Highland/Time Travel/Fantasy Romance.

And Phil Gigante's narration? Oh my! He does such a good job with the female voices that I was quickly no longer aware that the narrator was a man. And what he does for the male voices... *sigh*... his Scottish brogues gave me aural eargasm after eargasm!
