What would you do if the stories of your childhood suddenly began coming to life? Teagan Wylltson’s best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures—goblins, shapeshifters, 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. Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives, with his killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. Either he’s crazy or he’s been haunting Abby’s dreams, because he’s talking about goblins, too . . . and about being 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.
First off, I feel like I just read a spin-off series of an unknown character in Julie Kagawa's The Iron Fey series. I mean, it's got it's own mythology and story line. Which I loved. It has Celtic and Irish mythology mixed into fairy tales. That...makes me really happy. I love the Irish culture, and I've had a book in mind that's set in Ireland for a long time now. :3 So that makes me happy~
There wasn't that much romance in it, when there was, it was at least a sentence or two. I've read enough of YA (and some adult) romances that it's just a
About the characters; Teagan was an okay heroine, I just...don't know what to make of her just yet. I loved Finn. He was a sweetheart and he's funny. :) I don't really like or hate Aiden, Teagan's little brother. He's a 5-year-old genius. I mean the stuff he says, it's like he's waaay older than his actual age.
All in all, this was a cute read. I gave it three out of five stars because of what I said in the first paragraph. Hope I don't get blasted for that. D: But I do want to read the next book. :)
