    One thought on “The Gathering”

    1. Quite surprised how short this was! Time travel, Scotland and the 1745 - definitely cashing in on the Outlander craze - you always start these type of books with a bit of trepidation, and although it was short - a bit of a appetizer for the rest of the series, it wasn't too bad and I will give the next book the series a go.

    2. This really seems like a fun and interesting start to pretty great sounding series. Not sure if I'm going to read every ghosts story but a few sound really good.

    3. Very interesting! Can't wait to read about all these Highlanders. Reading Lachlan next! Very good short intro.

    4. I really enjoyed this short intro into The Ghosts of Culloden Moor series. I spotted the book on Kindle Unlimited and being a huge fan of Highland fiction, I downloaded it.Having been lucky enough to visit Culloden, I can appreciate the atmospheric setting there and think this series might just become another favourite. Walking along the battlefield I have often wondered what horrors those young men saw and what they went through. I am looking forwards to falling their individual journeys and fi [...]

    5. Hmm interesting premise but somewhat lacking in execution. I thought I'd give it try so I read The Gathering and then Lachlan. There wasn't a real ending for Lachlan, the author called it a temporary ending for now. So Lachlan was good, but short without a solid ending, and the next book in the series, Jamie, is $2.99 for 108 pages. Really? Why should I keep reading if the stories are so short, cost money for many of them (only some are available through Kindle Unlimited) and may not have real e [...]

    6. The 79 Ghosts of Culloden Moor. They are stuck on Culloden Moor all 79 of them. For many a year they have watched people come and go. They have watched the self proclaimed witches come and do whatever it is witches do, but nothing ever changes until one year when a couple come with a baby, a baby that they feel something for. This little baby named Soni is special. She can see them and strangely enough isn't scared of them. For years they wait and watch Soni grow as her parents bring her to Cull [...]

    7. Interesting startI have wondered for quite a while now why time travel to Scotland seems to be almost its own genre. Tall, brave Highlander? This beginning is unusual. A baby is brought to an old battlefield where 79 Scottish warriors are spirits? Every year her parents bring her back and she interacts with these warriors. Now she's 16 and a witch and has plans for all 79! Its good story so far.

    8. The adventure beginsWhat a fascinating concept for a series. So many souls at Cullodean. I always wondered what if they had survived? Well finally I get to find out. Not for the faint of heart - 79 stories to be told. But what stories does Cullodean hold.

    9. i loved this short anthology! i am really looking foreward to the next few books- i know there are 33 in this series so far but i will take it a book at a time and see where it goes!. So far however, i am enthralled and cant wait!

    10. Drivel. Within four pages I had pegged it as a US author trying to 'write Scottish ' would a wee bit of language research kill you! It's a pet hate of mine and instantly puts my back up. We don't say 'tailgate ' and the mixed 'scots' and 'English ' just no!

    11. Great opening storyGreat opening to a series and I'm looking forward to reading all of the books. I like that there are so many books to the series and that we get to learn about all of the characters.

    12. This wasn't a "scary" ghost story, rather it was an intriguing beginning to The Ghosts of Culloden Moor series. Yes, I'll be reading book 1.

    13. NiceA unique premise, an interesting plot and good execution make for a nice setup for the series, providing a background for the books that follow.

    14. IntroThis is a good introduction to a long series. There are 79 men that Soncerae aka Soni who is a Muir witch is giving then life to the pass on instead of being ghosts.

    15. Great book to read. Enjoyed all the ghosts. I cant wait to read more in this series. The author does a. Great job in making you feel for the ghosts.

    16. As an outlander fan, I was intrigued enough to give this series a try. This is just a short story that sets up series. On to the the next one. Not overly impressed yet.

    17. A Tad Confusing I liked the story, but it was a little bit confusing. Maybe if I read some more of the series, it will make more sense.

    18. Historical Romance novel I presume following the huge success of Outlander with Mrs. Diana Galbderson (sp) that historical romance are all the rage! I felt that this was an adequate introduction to scores of future signify t Scotish warriors. Wow! The story was very short _ progressed semi_well. DR H could not get into the young four old _ Witch _ developing into a main character who I presume will go betwe trulyen modern times 2015 and Culloden moor era ©270 years ago. Truly. D R H

    19. The young shall lead them.Lead them where? How? Who are they? Who will lead? To what end? This book introduced the witch, Son I, who from the time she was a babe in arms had a connection to 79 souls who refused to pass on, could NOT pass on, their belief so strong so that to not have prevailed was unthinkable, seemingly unresolved, betrayed! Before they can move on, she offers them a chance. You and I will have to read subsequent books to answer these questions regarding the men of Culloden star [...]

    20. So far I have enjoyed this series. The Gathering is book one and you need to read this to know what's happening in the other books in the Series (you don't need to read the others in order as long as you read this one first, but I prefer to read them in order). Since there are 79 ghosts, there will be 79 short stories about each ghost but not all of them will be written by L.L. Muir. I have read the 11 books that were available and I liked each of the stories. It's a fun read and I can't wait un [...]

    21. I really liked this short novella about the 79 Ghost of Culloden Moor. It definitely makes me want to read the rest of this series. It basically is the story of 79 young Scottish men who died in the war for their bonnie Prince Stuart. Instead of moving on (like most spirits do) they are all wanting revenge on him for leading them instead massacre and then leaving the field before the war started. They are reawakened my a baby named Soni and it tells how she grows up seeing and talking to them (e [...]

    22. It's Over?I chose this book to keep me company during a football game. I got comfortable and stared reading before the first quarter was over, so was the book. It was a shock and disappointment. I was disappointed because I was hooked into the story and wanted more. I only hope that book two will last at least one whole game. I will continue to read this story until it truly ends.
