Diane D. 5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting! Touching! Humorous! All in one! Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2021. Completely captivating! Too fast of a read – I didn’t want it to end. The author is extremely adept at painting the picture of people, places and things. It all comes to life in amazing technicolor in the reader’s mind. I loved it! There had better be a sequel!

h carty rated it on Goodreads it was amazing · I don’t usually read fantasy novels but as I’d thoroughly enjoyed the Harry Potter series I decided to throw myself out of my comfort zone and read this just published first novel by Donna Marie George . I’m glad I did. I was drawn into the world of Maeve, Shae and Liam and the mystical land of Hy Breasail. I wasn’t expecting the strong Irish mythological & language content but it enriched the story. I’m expecting a sequel & possibly a film… I’ve recommended to my 14 year old niece. I think it will appeal and it can be hard to find suitable reading which will fire the imagination and make the world a little more magical!
Stella Gizas rated it on Goodreads. it was amazing I really enjoyed this book! There were many characters introduced with Irish names and it was helpful to find the clans listed at the back of the book. I was intrigued by the characters and the land of Hy-Bresail. The author draws you into this fantasy and brings the characters to life. As someone who never read a fantasy novel, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book and hope there is a sequel! I would highly recommend.
D. Hughes rated it on Amazon 5.0 out of 5 stars – Fantastic from the land of unusual happenings in everyday America to the Land of Irish Royalty. Reviewed in the United States on June 10, 2021 Verified Purchase – The story is written in today’s time frame…but we are eventually taken to a gorgeous rich land of Hy-Breasail where Maeve is the future reigning queen. She ends up going way sooner than planned and the excitement revs up even more. Put your seatbelt on, though, between all of the various characters from Hy-Breasail and Rowan where Maeve lives with her mom and dad and 3 sisters, your head will spin trying to keep up! Definitely looking forward to the next adventure in this Rowan/Hy-Breasail series!
