This novel is not normally the type of book I enjoy, but after reading the other reviews I deciding to give it a chance, and boy am I glad I did.

I hate when people give the SL away in reviews so I refuse to do that but what I will say is fir this to be the authors first novel (and a self published one at that) it is well thought out.
From the beginning you connect with the characters, the words so well crafted that it pulls you in to look at the world through their eyes. The first few chapters had me on a crazy rollercoaster of emotions from sadness and happiness to horror and back to sadness once more. At one stage I wished I could leap into the book and land a wallop on one of the characters.
The chapters that followed brought you on the journey and it was one full of myth and legend of Ireland. The characters in the book are great and range from the Grandad Brendan (typical Irish Grandad - very funny, he was my favourite character) to a "Traveller" whose stories will have you cringing and laughing out loud.
The plot is well laid out and the twist at the end? Well... you'll have to read it to see for yourself.

Overall this was an amazing first book by what appears to be an exceptionally talented author. I look forward to reading more from them.

Enjoyed reading this book ,a worthwhile little book nicely written. However in my opinion if the author had included a glossary of pronunciations for the names it would have enhanced it. Had I not been of Irish descent and familiar with the pronunciations it would have frustrated me. Just a personal opinion

This book starts with explaining the Banshee curse in with fantastically gruesome detail, just as a horror should. It then goes on to tell Sean, Kevin and Brendans journey to save Kevins life. Filled with horror, laughter, suspense and a bit of romance this was the best horror I've read in a long time and I think the only hor com lol. Very well written and highly amusing at times, hide behind the chair at others, on the edge of your seat and biting your nails while all the time turning the page as quick as you can read to find out what happens. Highly recommend especially to fans of horrors, suspense and comedy!! Huge well done to the author for a fantastic read and hope to hear about more books from you!! x

The Celtic Curse, written by D. J. Doyle, is a well written and dark story. I found it very refreshing that the author picked a topic that is not very often written about, and did an excellent job developing this story. It is unique and brings something new to the table. I truly enjoyed reading about some Irish mythology that is fascinating and should definitely be more written about. The plot is well developed and has some interesting twists hidden within, some I did not see coming and some that actually upset me. The ending was surprising and took a complete turn on me, and no I don't give away spoilers. It speaks for the author when you actually feel bad for the "monster", in this case the Banshee, but reading how the banshee came about made the difference!

Sean is not your typical hero but rises to the occasion. He is extremely likable and definitely a person who could exist in real life. Without any idea on what he gets himself into, he does what he knows he must do to save his son. The book follows a good pace and follows his journey to discover what he must do to save his loved ones.

This book is definitely not what I expected and did not end on how I thought it would. The author did an excellent job with this book and I can only recommend it to fellow readers. I enjoyed it even more since it covers banshees, who are not commonly covered and I don't really know much about. It was great to learn a little more about them in this book, but they are still quite the mystery.

Voluntary review of Advance Reader Copy. I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher.

This is a chilling story of a 17th century gypsy curse, laid on the the perpetrators of a cruel rape and murder, which visits their descendents through the generations to the present day. A 'sins-of-the-fathers' premise which is scary because it haunts perfectly innocent people in the future who, once they realise its existence, can't seem to discover how to stop it. Or do they? (No spoilers!) This was full of interesting celtic folklore, plenty of storytelling, and characters I could sympathise with. For me, it could have done with a bit more action and a bit more polish, but overall a good read for fans of this genre

When I read the first few pages of this book, I was blown away by the writing style. It painted the mood instantly of the events and times of the place (several hundred years back in Ireland). I actually went back and re-read the first page about three times trying to figure out why these pages struck such a cord with me. Such vibrant writing. Particularly on the first part which is amazing because that was about the old times when the curse is placed on the family. It can't be easy crafting a convincing story around times long since past. But the author was very successful on this point. I think it was because it painted such a haunting mood and you really connected with the characters. Right up my alley

The book doesn't remain in the olden days, it advances to modern times where the family is trying to find a way to stop the curse. No spoilers here, except to say it was a fun adventure. I'm looking forward to the next book.
