Through the whole book one thing resonated through me, and maybe I'm at a time in my life I needed to read it. "You're not broken; you're just bent." Those words had a staggering effect on Brochan, they also had a staggering effect on me. Lizzie saved Brochan, Brochan saved Lizzie. Both were not broken, just a little bent. I refuse to give you a retread of the blurb, and I know this review isn't like some of my others. The reason being is because the book touched deep into my soul. I would have never thought a book could squeeze so much emotion and feelings from me. This one did. So read this. Lizzie and Brochan's story will move you, it will make you feel, it will also bring those emotions you've kept hidden to the front. And afterwards. Afterwards you will feel free. You will feel happy you started the broken fairytale journey with them.
Savage starts out totally brutal and it really sets the pace for the book. It’s deep and intense and pulled me in. Brochan McIntyre has had a rough life… I won’t get into all that but he’s broken. It’s so intense and dark!! His past haunts him and his past saddens me and made my heart ache for him. Lizzie Danton finds herself with an inherited cottage in Scotland (if only) and once she arrives, she finds that she feels a connection, she feels she’s found a place she can call her home.
Brochan is a total enigma… people don’t know what to think of him. Is he a werewolf? People whisper and point. What he is, is broken, he’s reserved and keeps to himself. I’ll tell ya… I’ve never been to Scotland, I’ve never researched it or anything and I suck and geology… but I felt like Fiore totally brought me to Scotland!! I felt like I got to live it through Lizzie’s eyes… it’s like having a child and experiencing life over through them. I loved it! The foods, the foreign language, the views of the land. It was a masterpiece! Fiore told a magically story of a place that seems like a dream and two people who deserve more than they’ve ever had!
This narration is the most amazing I have ever heard. If I could give this more than 5 stars for performance, I would. I've seen several books by Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks but I have never listened to them previously. Aaron's Scottish brogue was the best I have ever heard! The narrators inflicted so much emotion with just their voices. I read this book before and I loved it, however, listening to the narration brings it up another notch. I cried through this audio book and I didn't cry through the book.
English is not my first language, so I'm guessing all the above and so many more that I don't know of. Reading Savage was an absolute joy, a beautiful story about fighting the ugly through beauty. Finding the light in the darkness. Letting the monster become an angelic savior.
Lizzie and Brochan's childhoods were horrible. They were abused, neglected and their only crime was being born. With no sense of belonging, life brings them together, in Scotland. Lizzie is an optimistic artist who believes in change and Brochan – well, he's just the opposite. Together they learn how to fight their demons, and boy those demons are brutal...
Savage is not an ordinary romantic love story. It is a suspenseful fairy tale that you won't be able to stop reading. Every page was another step in Lizzie & Brochan's journey to heal, to love, to believe in good and beautiful things to come…to find a home and family after years of not belonging anywhere.
Thank you, L.A., for another magically story.
