Allison thought it was crazy enough when she found out her father, Liam, wasn't entirely human. But now she has to join his magical allies to unravel his former mistress's plans. Aoife wants to keep Allison's parents apart forever.
Despite Allison's efforts to keep Ethan, the only guy she's ever cared about, out of this supernatural mess, fate keeps throwing him back into the mix.
Will Allison be able to find the amulet that holds the enchantment Aoife placed on Liam and destroy it? Are Ethan' s feelings for Allison strong enough to endure the magic of the Tuatha De Danaan?
Stone of Destiny by Laura Howard is book two of The Danaan Trilogy and picks up right where book one left off, like literally with the next sentence after the cliffhanger. Allison now knows that she must destroy Aoife’s amulet if there is any hope of her mother recovering. At the same time, she tries unsuccessfully to push Ethan away, to protect him. But at the end of book one, Deaghlan erases Ethan’s memories of the Tuatha de Danaan, and Ethan seems to resent Allison. Did Deaghlan do more than just erase Ethan’s memories?
As with book one, I love these characters! Allison is still the strong, independent character she was in book one, however she is learning in this book that she can’t do everything alone. Sometimes she has to trust and rely on others. Enter Ethan 🙂 I seriously love this guy! He is the perfect book boyfriend. He’s known Allison all his life, he likes her a lot, and he seems to know just the right thing to say and when. Basically when Allison tells him everything (and I do mean everything) about Liam and her heritage, he doesn’t run for the hills. Nope he tells her “Whatever you’re planning to do to help your parents, I want to be there.”
The plot of this story is fast moving and really a page turner (I read it in one sitting!). It’s a race against time as Allison, Ethan, and Liam must find Aoife and figure out what she is planning. I won’t spoil it because it needs to be read and enjoyed 🙂
Overall I loved this book and am anxiously waiting for the final installment! Be warned there is a semi-cliffhanger and yes I shed some tears as well. If you enjoy fantasy, fairy lore, action, suspense, and a little romance, I highly recommend you check out this series.
