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.
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.
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.

A proven fact is that everyone reads a book differently. I endeavor to do so by turning off the writer in my head and let the reader take charge. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Shervin Jamali
