My Rating: 3.5 out of 5
Total departure for me: It is hard-core fantasy; parts are NC-17 but suprisingly, I really enjoyed it!
I’ve heard hard-core readers talk about this series over and over and over (and over) again. Everyone luvvvssss these books. So it was just a matter of time before I picked them up myself.
The writing is adequate, the story unusual (for me) and I loved the main character by the end of this book. This is an extremely surprising reaction in my opinion because it has 3 things I absolutely NEVER thought I would tolerate in a book:
- it is hard-core fantasy.
- parts of it are NC-17.
- my copy (thankfully on my Nook) had a LOT of cleavage on the cover.
Yet despite all of this, I really liked this book and will read the rest in the series. I know, right? ME! This story is about a young 20 something from Atlanta whose sister is murdered in Dublin, Ireland while studying there. She travels to Dublin to come to grips with the tragedy and hopefully find some information to lead to her sister’s killer when out of the blue she discovers she is ‘special’ and otherworldly. Chaos ensues.
I never, EVER thought I would like a book like this. Never say never!
