Let me start by saying this is probably one of the hardest reviews I have ever written because this book just had so little impact for me. I'm not saying it was bad, in fact I remember thinking when I finished the book that I sort of liked it, but now (only a few days later) I can hardly remember anything about it, and that isn't good.
This book is based on the Fae and Celtic mythology; it is very good in this respect, quite unique and really interesting. The characters are what let the book down, there isn't much substance to them and I felt they were under developed. The romance between the two main characters felt forced, like the author had put it in because she felt she had to rather than because that was what worked best for the book.
Also, this book is yet another case of the girl deciding she loves the guy after they have spoken about twice, and the very predictable big misunderstanding that nearly ruins everything and is caused entirely by the main character just being an idiot. Sigh.
The idea and basic storyline behind the book is good; it just needs more development for the characters and their romance, a little more action and a general polish and it could be a very good book. In my opinion it is not there yet though. Give this book a try if you like fiction based on mythology as that aspect of the book is very good.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, this has not affected my review in anyway*
Characters like this almost always draw me in, i like when everything is not easy & the characters has flaws. Needless to say i liked Meghan.
I also liked her friends & family. I am looking forward to reading the next books in the series & finding out more about them.
The book is interesting & it has new aspects to a YA fantasy which make it worth a read. Meghan is 17, i would say though that younger & older people could read it as it is not too childish or too grown up. There aren't any sex/sexual scenes that would make it unsuitable for younger readers.
I enjoyed this book & i will read the follow up books for sure :)
Meghan was a foundling. No one knows where she came from or why she was found naked wandering the streets in a very bad part of LA. All Meghan know is she has never fit in anywhere and no one has ever wanted to be around her for long. There is something about her that seems to frighten people especially about her eyes... Her whole life everyone has always avoided them or distanced themselves from her after looking into them. Maybe it is the strange way the seem to shift color constantly... Or maybe it is something else. She has always heard voices and sounds no one else does and seen things that cannot possibly be real... And then there are the dreams... Prophetic and recurring... Will she ever find out her origins? Will the dream ever make sense? She has a family now... The Elems ... And friends. Will she ever fit in? Be normal?
This was a unique take on Celtic legends and Fae origins. I really liked it even when I was confused about the motivations of the characters. It kept me guessing who was friend and who was foe and I found that refreshing. I truly saw this story from Meghan's point of view and experienced all the ups and downs right along with her. All the doubts, tribulations, and epiphanies were revealed through her eyes and that is rare. Usually I can figure out what is going on before the main character not with them! I can't wait to read Dolmarehn - Book Two of the Otherworld Trilogy to find out what is next for Meghan in her journey of self discovery!
This series will appeal to fantasy lovers and paranormal enthusiasts alike!Read more ›
When Meghan's visions get worse, along with the voices in her head, she's worried she'll get dragged off to another psychiatrist. But then Cade MacRoich shows up one night, and he has all the answers she's looking for. However, Cade also brings the news that she's a mix of two types of fae....something that's usually killed before it has the chance to take the wrong path and be a threat.
I love Meghan, she's not traditionally beautiful, she's not popular, and she has a group of some of the most interesting and diverse people. She's an outcast, a little bit weird and her and all of her friends are the oddballs. It makes such a change to not read about a character who's beautiful and popular and so on and so on. I also liked how realistic the bullying situation is, some books take it too far and are totally ridiculous about it, but not Faelorehn.
Faelorehn isn't like the usual books about the Fae, where there's the other world and they're all beautiful and it's usually all the same type of mythology. Faelorehn is based on Celtic mythology, which drew me in right away and I loved reading about it all when we got snippets of it in the book. It's a very unique take on the fae and fairies and their world and mythology.Read more ›
