AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5 Stars for Inherit the Sky (Lang Downs #1) by Ariel Tachna #MM #Adventure @dreamspinners


Title: Inherit the Sky (Lang Downs #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Ariel Tachna (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: February 20, 2012 – 206 pgs


Caine Neiheisel is stuck in a dead-end job at the end of a dead-end relationship when the chance of a lifetime falls in his lap. His mother inherits her uncle’s sheep station in New South Wales, Australia, and Caine sees it as the opportunity to start over, out on the range where his stutter won’t hold him back and his willingness to work will surely make up for his lack of knowledge. Unfortunately, Macklin Armstrong, the foreman of Lang Downs who should be Caine’s biggest ally, alternates between being cool and downright dismissive, and the other hands are more amused by Caine’s American accent than they are moved by his plight… until they find out he’s gay and their amusement turns to scorn. It will take all of Caine’s determination-and an act of cruel sabotage by a hostile neighbor-to bring the men of Lang Downs together and give Caine and Macklin a chance at love.

I have to admit this was a bit of a surprise for me. I’d heard that Arial Tachna was a good author, but hadn’t yet picked up one of her books. This is an older book of hers, but I still really really enjoyed it.
The men are from two VERY different worlds. Watching Caine grow and become a strong man who believes in himself and his decisions was really fantastic.
Then there was Macklin, who is very used to things being done his way and Caine throws him off by not always willing to go with the flow.
I really can’t say how much I liked this book enough. There is some choas and turmoil which made for some antsy parts, but in the end I loved it all.
The narrator did an excellent job with the many voices and accents that were needed in the book. I felt he really added to the story.
