YA Mythological.

This book was actually three books and each book affected me differently.  I suspect the first book was written after the other two books because some of the details didn’t add up when I was reading them.  And throughout the rest of the books I kept wondering what happened to some of the characters from the first and second books.  That stuck out in my mind.

The plotline itself was very original to me.  I am a big fan of mythology books but the concept of the banshees, or bean sidhe, is one I haven’t read before and pretty cool. The author did this really cool thing where the MC was forced with a choice in each book but each choice she picked had a negative consequence attached to it so really no matter what she did bad things happened.  You know, it’s usually pretty clear cut in books.  You have good versus bad, but in this book it wasn’t.   I really liked that about the book.

These books had really nothing to do with each other. I think what threw me was the fact the each book didn’t transition into the next, they were just separate stories.  But with the same characters that intermingled between books. I think I could have read the last one and not even known it was the third book if that makes sense. It seemed that the story didn’t progress, they were wholly separate.

Unfortunately, I really don’t think I’m going to read the next volume in this series.  It just didn’t do it for me.  Sorry.

Favorite quotes:

Yeah! I was starting to wonder if my uncle wore chain mail beneath his clothes, because he sounded eager to slay the dragon Skepticism. And I was ready to ride into battle with him…

“You sold your soul for fame and fortune?” Nash asked, contempt so think in his voice I almost looked down to see it some had dripped on the carpet. .
