Melissa's Review:

MacKayla aka Mac tragically finds out that her sister was killed while studying abroad in Ireland. When she replaces her broken phone, she finds voicemails from her sister from the day she was killed. Determined to find her sister's killer, Mac travels to Ireland against her parent's wishes. After a few days, Mac's world is turned upside down when she discovers that she has powers. She's not just a normal person, living in a small town. She's able to see through fae's glamours and freeze them at a touch. This is a bit dangerous since the fae do not wish to be seen for what they really are.

Lucky enough for Mac, she stumbles upon a book shop and finds unexpected help. Jericho, the owner of the book shop guides Mac in her journey for the Sinsar Dubh, a magical item that he has been searching for but has never been able to find. Unsure who to trust, her only choice is to locate the item her sister told her to. I have no clue why I didn't start this series sooner. It lives up to all the hype that I've seen about it, and now I need to get my hands on book two asap. I highly recommend this book if you're looking for a fae adventure.

  2. I've been meaning to read KMM's works, but still haven't gotten around to it. I need some UF in my life right now. I can't seem to find a book that makes me go "wow" and continue reading... I've DNF'd so many so far (and it's the beginning of the year!) sigh. This one I think I'm gonna have to get the eBook asap. Great review, girly!

  3. I read this years ago, but I can't remember exactly what I thought about it. I know for the series, I never liked it as much as most people, but I did read it through the original story arc. I didn't read the Dani O'Malley books.

  5. Glad you enjoyed them Meissa, like Melanie, I never did fall in love with them. I kept reading for the storyline, but never liked the main characters.

  6. Whew just getting to her? I liked these but didn't love them. Took me a while (like book 3-4) before I was totally in them. Her Highlander series on the other hand total LOVE. They're lightly connected but more paranormal romance.

    1. I enjoyed it, it slightly reminded me of KHarrison's writing style, not sure why. Only diff is it wasn't a huge info dump to lay all the ground work in book one.

  7. I've always wanted to read this series, especially after a friend told me many great things about it. Then, one read lead to another and I ended up burying this in the never-ending TBR pile... *sigh* Anyway, it's good to hear it worked well for you, too, and I'll try my best to give it a go!

  8. I was just commenting over at Hot Listens and saying I couldn't get into this book...I think I stopped after the first chapter. A lot of people says the series gets better...wonder if I could start with the 2nd book instead, lols. Great review Melissa
