Allison had planned to never date but to finish school and get a good job, just so she could take care of her Schizophrenic mother, Beth. she had always felt guilty, feeling like she ruined her mother's life. Beth was pregnant with Allison when her lover, Liam left. since then, Beth hadn't quite been herself, having an episode every now and then especially when Allison looked so much like Liam. one day, Liam appeared, claiming that he could rescue Beth, explaining Beth's situation to be an ability performed by a Danaan. as distrustful as Allison was towards her father, she believed his stories about the Danaan, the long forgotten people of Irish.
i received a free e-book from the author in exchanged for a review. the first half of the book was rather enjoyable, a seemingly normal teenage romance no matter how much Allison tried to deny her feelings for Ethan. at this point, it was difficult to like either one of them, one being too closed off, another being too flirtatious. the moment Liam appeared, i was looking forward to their confrontation and a change of scenery. it started out promising, until all the names started appearing. at some point after knowing the main villain was called Breanh, i tend to skim over all the other names. fortunately the abilities they had was interesting enough to spike some interest, i managed to held on until the very end.
