Not one accent is beyond the skills of Laura Darrell in this tale based on Scottish history and legend. Listeners meet U.S. Lieutenant Carter Porter, who is grieving for his departed child, and teenaged Loch Ness Hotel employee Hassie Douglass, who is devoted to her dying grandfather. Their storylines mesh seamlessly when Carter meets Hassie after discovering a journal containing an unusual treasure map. Darrell convincingly conveys Hassie's knowledge of local lore and Carter's useful military skills when ruthless Russian mercenaries scheme to seize the priceless treasure. Listeners will be deeply moved to meet the river god Phiagree, who encourages Carter and Hassie, and humorous, law-abiding Royce, who accompanies the maverick duo. Audio enriches this story's plausibly depicted magic, visions, enchanting lochs, and satisfying conclusion. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
