A vengeful, wild-eyed warrior, he’s the most sinister figure in Scottish legend. For three centuries, the Tercentennial Baron has fought his way through famous battles—then vanished without a trace. Now he’s reappeared in the quiet town of Bonnybield, where he’s about to be discovered by thirteen-year-old Percival Dunbar…

Armed with a secret stash of books on the supernatural, Percival is the only one to recognize the ghostly signs emerging around his town. When he tries to decipher them, he’s terrified to suddenly find himself face to face with the murderous Tercentennial Baron. However, the Baron reveals he’s come not to attack Bonnybield, but to save it from an ancient, demonic evil.

Through an epic journey from the battlefields of 17th-century Scotland to the underworld of Victorian London and beyond, Percival races to uncover the truth of the Baron’s past—and what it means for his own destiny. 

My first audio-book in forever. I should really listen to more…

But yes. It took a long while to get through this, but I’m glad I was able to listen to this story with the narrator. The narrator was amazing and the story was really good. I was hooked right away.

The story follows Percival at first, but then the book switches and we then follow the Baron for a while learning about his past and more about this world. I honestly enjoyed following the Baron more than Percival. Nothing wrong with young Percival, but I honestly loved seeing the Baron and his transformation throughout the centuries.

Poor Baron. He had a tough time of it and it was all because of that blasted event. Poor guy. He just wanted to live a simple life and make a difference for his beloved Scotland. But alas, Destiny has other plans for him. He gets tossed into the world of the supernatural as a supernatural being.

I want to talk more about the narration. I don’t listen to a lot of audio-books. Why? I usually have a hard time focusing and it bothers me how slow it takes. But I utterly enjoyed listening to this narrator. His accents were flawless. His voice captured the story and brought it to life. Listening to him tell the story didn’t feel like an audio-book. I want to listen to more of his stuff! So good.

Okay...lastly…the ending….

No. No. No. You cannot leave me like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! I legit cried when the story was over. So much betrayal and heartache. I am very, very sad. I need to find out what happens next. My poor little heart is so saddened. *sniff*

In the end, I am in love with this story and the narrator. I want more by the author and I want more by the narrator. This is a must read and a must listen. The ending left me upset, but I am excited to see what is to happen next. I shall stamp this with 5 stars.
