Book Description

11 Feb 2012 The Legacy of Kilkenny
Ireland has many secrets... this is one of them. The legend has been confirmed, the Great Wolf has been born. Abel Casey, a 16 year old student is in for the ride of his life, literally. The Pack princess Pru , she is on a mission to train Abel for his destiny. This is a werewolf story that will take one pack of wolves on the ride of their lives, someone won't survive....will the pack? The Legacy of Kilkenny an incredible journey for these young adults. The reader will be drawn into this romantic yet invigorating story of friends and action. The prophecy has been stated, now it will be lived. 5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Urban Fantasy! A Must Read! The Legacy of Kilkenny is a fantastic read. Devyn Dawson has created one amazing urban- fantasy world. The storyline is strong and fresh, with different werewolf packs, vampires, dream walkers, and seers--and that's just the tip of this awesome adventure. The characters are well-developed and full of personality. This is the first book I've read where the main boy and girl characters were not in love with each other, but it works. Dawson did beautifully with Pru already being in love with Oakley. I didn't dislike Pru for not returning Abel's feelings, and you will see why (no spoilers). ~ I Heart YA Books

More About the Author

I've thought of myself as a writer for as long as I can remember. Being a grown up with a grown up job and a family to raise, left me with little time to write. Everyone is grown up now, and I get to do something I want to do. My love of young adult books helped mold me into the paranormal writer I am today.

The books that I write reflect the type of books that I like to read. When I was in high school, I read Stephen King and Sweet Valley High. I think that is the type of book I write....something that merges that together. You'll find my writing style to have an intricate story weaved within the main story. The characters have depth and many have flaws. The Legacy series is very detailed with many stories weaved into one.

My newest series The Light Tamer is a lighter read, with a new paranormal vibe. It is aimed for 13 and over, but people of all ages will fall in love with the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed it! 20 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The story is about Abel Casey, an average teenager boy who lives with his parents and has a sister called Allie, Abel doesn't know how special he is and neither does he know about the challenges he will face to meet his destiny.
His whole life changes from the minute he lays his eyes on Pru Phelan, she is more than a beautiful girl, she is a werewolf and she is the one who will break the news to Abel and train him for his destiny as to become The Great Wolf.
Abel has a lot to deal with, he doesn't want to leave his family and he is not even sure if he wants to shift into a werewolf.
He is told he has to die, but does he?
His life and the lives of people he loves are in danger, his sister is changing, has she been infected?
This is a story about power and ambition, about loyalty, alliances and betrayals. Werewolves against each other's packs and dangerous vampires, a thrill I hope you'll get to feel.

It took me while to warm up to the story, I must confess. The book is written in two different POVs, Prus and Abels. At first I didn't like Abel much, I thought he was a bit soft and pushed over too easily but I guess that was what Devyn wanted us to feel because I felt that Abel changed throughout the pages, getting more confident and accepting who he is. I loved Prus POVs, she is a very strong minded girl but she has a personal soft side, she struggles with her feelings toward a handsome wolf called Oakley (who is my favourite character!) and I was longing for her to get his attention, I mean get his heart, body and soul! Get everything Oakley!
I loved the characters, I very much enjoyed reading the story and I am looking forward for the book 2. I want to get to know more about the characters and I have a few questions myself and I guess that's good.

I liked this book but I was a bit confused during a lot of it. For one thing, it's called the legacy of Kilkenny, but it's set in America??? The title mislead me into thinking it was set in Ireland. It's not. Aside from that, I enjoyed the book, my favorite character was definitely Abel, he is really funny and a very likeable character but most of the other characters I found quite boring though. I got it as a free book and I enjoyed it, but I wouldn't pay for it, and I won't be buying the next in the series.
