The Forgotten Ones {Book Tour}

Kindle Edition, 197 pages
Published April 28th 2013 by Amazon Digital Services

Summary

Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.

First, may I say, I just love that cover. I love green. I love purple. It's all just so pretty.

Ok, onto the book. It was amazing. A colorful tale with fae legends and Irish folklore. It wasn't as original as I was hoping for, but it was still a really good read. The problems weren't 'solved' too quickly which has been a problem in some of the books I've been reading lately. 

Allison's mother has been trapped in her own mind for as long as she can remember, calling out the name 'Liam' and looking out into the woods. All Allison wants is to take care of her mother but Liam comes and disrupts her plans. He claims he can save her mother from herself. Allison is forced to trust a man she never knew, who seems to be her father, and venture into the world of the Tuatha de Danaan. 

The way the book unfolded was fast paced and, to be honest, a little rushed. You are caught up in a delightful, quick read filled with colorful visions, true heartbreak, friendship, obsession and love. The love in this book was a little vague but I assume it will progress as the series goes on. 

Overall: 3.5

  2. I've been wondering about this one, I see it everywhere! I'm sure the romance will develop more later on, I actually prefer it that way as opposed to insta-love. Glad you liked it!
