I thoroughly enjoyed this story! I loved the book and decided to check out the audiobook. Dave Gillies brings to life the second half of this series. His vocal distinctions made it easier to know who was talking and the emotions they were experiencing. As for the story: Eva was such a strong woman that I loved her. Her devotion to William was unflappable even when she wanted to distance herself. William was honorable, chivalrous, caring toward his people, and quite willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for his country. There are some smiles, some tears, and a lot of tense action. I received a copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Audio and Book Review: a marvelous, enthralling listen, written by Amy Jarecki, narrated by Dave Gillies I read this book about a year ago, and loved it so much—one of my favored stories penned by Amy Jarecki. The audiobook only intensified those feelings. Where I shed tears in the read, I was all out bawling in the listen. This one wrung and twisted my heart so many times, there were chapters I had a hard time reading for all the tears, but with the listen I was a total puddle! Narrator Dave Gillies brings out all the emotion and terrifying moments making the reader experience the anguish faced by these men of history who had very short lifespans as compared to today. I enjoy listening to a book I’ve already read, not the other way around. I also prefer some time pass before I pick up the audio. I know what the story is about, but don’t remember the specifics of the story as clearly. I encourage you, dear reader, to use the great deal has for you. If you purchase the book, the audiobook with is only $1.99. Another great feature: If you want to reread the book at the same time as listening to it, you can. When you want to pick up the audio later, with your Bluetooth, you’re set while doing mundane tasks. To be caught up in a greater cause, the freedom of the Scottish people, William Wallace gave it his all. He was a powerful man, very spiritual, led with his heart and intellect, but also understood his failings. Here is a man who stands above the ordinary. He willingly martyrs himself for the life of Scotland. Author Jarecki has written so profoundly the plight of the man entangled with his hope for his people, it wrenches the emotions. With all the passion this man had for his country, Ms. Jarecki further entices the reader with time travel, total, crazy love which should not even be considered and finally hope when this reader can hardly continue. If you are a fan of Ms. Jarecki, this is her best. If you are a fan of medieval times, this one shouldn’t be missed. If you are of fan of love with pure sacrificial acceptance — do not—I say, do not let this one pass you by. If there were greater than 5 stars on the ratings, this one, dear reader, is one which surpasses the lot. Amen!

This is book 2 in the Guardian of Scotland series. William Wallace is made Guardian of Scotland and has a lot more responsibilities on his plate. He soon finds his love, Eva MacKay, taken from him and back to the 21st century where she desperately tries to get back to him. Will these two lovers find their way back to each other? I didn't want to go into too many details of the plot line because it would give away too much of the story. You definitely need to read the first book in the series before reading this one as it is basically part 2 of the story. As I mentioned in my review of Rise of a Legend, this is more of a historical fiction novel with a little bit of romance thrown in and NOT a historical romance story like most of the books I review. After reading the first book, I was wondering how Jarecki would end the book to my satisfaction given what I knew about Wallace's life. I will say that I was satisfied with how she ended the story and wrapped up the love affair between Wallace and Eva. Jarecki has a new Highlander series coming out. The first book, The Fearless Highlander, comes out this month!! Thanks go out to Rapture Books via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this second part of the William Wallace and Eva MacKay story. I would definitely recommend you read Rise of a Legend first to understand how Eva traveled back in time and what has happened in Scotland up to the time when In the Kingdom's Name begins. William rises to become the Guardian of Scotland and is able to raise an army to drive the English out of Scotland. But he has to guard against treachery from the Scottish nobles as well as the English. Eva has settled in to life in 13th century Scotland and expects to spend about a year with William before returning to her own time. Even though she has grown to love William, she knows she can't risk staying longer, and she definitely doesn't want to witness his horrible death. The unexpected twists in the story kept me turning the pages to find out how the past and present storylines would be resolved. I didn't know how the author was going to wrap it all up, but I think the ending was just right. There was magic and mystery, yet the ending was believable in the context of the story.

This is the stunning conclusion of Eva and William. Their love across time was captivating and heartbreaking all in one. I couldn't put this down. I just had to see how their story finished and I was left in awe by the idea of this strong a love through the centuries. When Eva is hurled back to her time away from William she is devastated. And tries for years to find a way back. William is also devastated and can do nothing but fight and fight hoping she will find her way back to him. When she finally comes back she knows what she has to do for herself. Stop William from dying. But how can she do that. And will she be hurled away from him forever if she tries?

#2 in the intriguing "Guardian of Scotland" series. While it can be read as a stand alone, I'd highly suggest reading "The Rise of a Legend" first. An intriguing tale told during the 1600 Scotland and its battle with England and William Wallace. This a what if... Time Travel about William Wallace, his struggles and sacrifice for Scotland, her future and freedom. And, of course, the Journalist Eva McKay, who learns so much more than the history books could ever tell, about the man, his legend, and the other fighters for Scottish freedom. Fast paced. Well written with vivid descriptions, characters with chivalry, who have honor, determination, a love of country and the women who loved the men in battle and off the field. An epic love story that spans the test of time! I enjoyed the way the author brought history to life though the pages of an amazing tale. OMG, the ending, have tissues at the ready, as you will feel their torment, their love, and the desperation to find their HEA. Well done! A must read for not only, Historical Romance fans of the Medieval era (1600's), but for, fans of Scottish history, Time Travel, Scottish legend, passion, and love. I absolutely loved this story! I not only learned a bit of history, I felt their angst, and their love. A passionate tale! A definite keeper! I can't wait to for the grand adventure from this author. *Received for an honest review from the publisher via Net Gallery* Rating: 4.5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
