"Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.

Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right.

The goblins are coming. "

To be up front this book not only confused me from the very beginning but was slow. It took a while before I started  to get into it. I found myself backtracking trying to figure out what I miss. But alas I kept going and it wasn't bad after all.

After Finn arrives everything goes south. Teagan is bombarded with trying to save the only family she has left and is fighting with everything that she has... She see's things that she is not suppose to see. With her father missing, it is up to her to bring him back...

Finn is no ordinary guy. He strong yet cunning. He reminds me of Maguyver. Always fixing things with duct tape and very smart. He was a great character that I adored. Aiden, Teagan's brother was a breathe of fresh air. He would either say something shocking or something funny. He always had me on my tiptoes.

The love interest in the book was one that I enjoyed. Right away Finn was hitting on Teagan and at first all I could think was how conceded the guy was. He was so confidant in his skills that he knew he could get Tea. But little did he know that Tea was special. She was head-strong and knew where she was going. I love that.

The folklore was interesting in this book. The more I read that more I learn. Which is why I love to read these types of books. You always learn something new. If you love folklore then I recommend you pick up this book. There was some cursing in the book.

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I agree with you, I was a little confused at times with this one as well, but once I got into it, I really enjoyed the story. And I loved Teagan, I thought she was a great heroine. I'm looking forward to book 2 and seeing where the Finn/Teagan relationship is going to go since it was so subtle in this story. Nice review Savy!

  2. Love the review, will have to check it out and see if I like it :)
