Her loyalties are tested when she learns of her true parentage and discovers she is part of a prophecy, destined to awaken an ancient power that has been lost for centuries . As she struggles to learn from her mother's past, she is faced with the ultimate struggle of good and evil, family or friends, she must learn who she can trust and find the power within herself to stop the prophecy from coming true.

3.5 ‘Finn’ Stars


Finn has turned sixteen and strange things have started to happen. Time moves faster or stands still. She dreams of familiar yet not people. A strange boy named Eamon shows up. Finn’s mother goes missing and they are both on the run. I always like Irish folk/myths and legends.


I really enjoyed the back story of the five Kingdoms in Ireland that once were and the five families from the royal bloodline that had magic.


Finn doesn’t know who and what she is and she learns to harness her powers. She is stronger than the sons of the other for families because she comes from two magical bloodlines and everyone wants to use her but no one wants to trust her because of her father Cormac.


So if you hadn’t guessed already then this is Young Adult not usually for me but I liked some of the twists and turns and to be honest Finn doesn’t really use her brain otherwise she could have figured some things out for herself. Now there was a point where I nearly gave up and this is because Finn and Eamon were so childish with one another. I mean come on you are teenagers not in Kindergarten.

It is really important to mention that this book has a cliffhanger that it is not a standalone and how many books will be in the series.


Book given by author in exchange for a honest review.
