Terrific story, artfully told.

Would you listen to Onyx again? Why?

I will listen to this story again, as it relates to the stories of his four sisters, so I am certain after I go to each of those I will want to revisit Onyx's story. It went by so quickly- really interesting plot.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Aiden and Ian, Onyx's two best friends made me laugh. I envisioned them as his hot sidekicks. I also thought the blind hag added intrigue, and Onyx's natural father was a man who had regrets, but was a complicated person.

Have you listened to any of Tim Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to several of Tim Campbell's performances, by several different authors. I have yet to be disappointed! His interpretation of each character in this story, and their voices, along with differing accents was wonderful. I truly enjoyed myself listening to the tale.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found myself laughing throughout the reading, especially at the antics of Onyx's two friends. I felt for Lady Love as she worried for her son, and was saddened with Fenella's fate.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this story and can highly recommend it. The plot was interesting and had moments of varying emotional ups and downs, with humor and romance. All this and told by a fantastic narrator.

An unexpected journey

What did you love best about Onyx?

I loved listening to Onyx's journey of discovery of his true self. From feeling unloved to discovering he not only could find someone to love him, but he had a father that loved him and the clan that had raised him loved him deeply and would always be there for him.

Which character – as performed by Tim Campbell – was your favorite?

I loved them all. Tim Cambell puts much into all the character's Making each their own unique being bringing Elizabeth Rose's vision from paper to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I often wanted to reach in the device and shake sense into Onyx when he was being so hardheaded.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to find out about the rest of the MadMan MacKeefes!

Super Great!

Onyx was thought to be dead when he was born. His mother tried to steal a dagger with an onyx embedded in it from a witch before he was conceived. He was taken to Scotland by a women who was a thief. She discovered he was alive and he grew up thinking she was his mother. When everyone saw that he had two different colored eyes, they called him the devil.
This is only a thread in the tapestry when you listen to this one. It has many twist and turns---then the real story unfolds!! Only a great storyteller can put color into these threads. The Narriator brought it to life with every thread. This masterpiece will be so complete in your mind when it ends, you will want to hang it on your wall. We all have choices in life. We curse ourselves by our thoughts and actions. Make a right choice and choose this book, you won't be sorry.

He was also plagued with appearing to be dead. Things change for him once he meets Lady Loveday. He finds out things that his most thee has kept from him his entire life. His life is full of chaos until he meets a mysterious older lady who puts everything into focus. No spoilers but this book is well written and worth every penny.

Onyx

Elizabeth Rose does a beautiful job with this exciting, fast paced romance novel. If you enjoy historical romance novels with a touch of magic, then you'll love reading Onyx. It's beautifully written with a unique, intriguing plot and well developed characters you can't help but become attached to. Tim Campbell gives a 5 star performance with his amazing vocal talent which brings the characters to life in the audio version.
