While most 17-year-old American girls would refuse to let their parents marry them off to a stranger, Robyn Mason dreams of the mysterious McKale in Ireland, wondering how he'll look and imagining his Irish accent. Prearranged bindings are common for magical families like her own. However, when she travels to the whimsical Emerald Isle, she discovers that there's more to her betrothal and McKale's clan than she'd been led to believe. What starts as an obligatory pairing between Robyn and McKale morphs over time into something they both need. But one giant obstacle stands in the way of their budding romance: a seductive and deadly Fae princess accustomed to getting what she wants - and what she wants is McKale as her plaything. Love, desire, and jealousies collide as Robyn's family and McKale's clan must work together to outsmart the powerful Faeries and preserve the only hope left for their ancient bloodlines.
2.5, and I listened to the audible.
Okay, I’m not entirely sure how to go about this review! There were parts that made me smile as I giggled inwardly, and one particular scene that made me laugh out loud. But then were more parts that made me roll my eyes or groan. I just.... I don’t know. It wasn’t a bad book, just maybe a little too immature and Some of the personalities TOO unbelievable for me. Fae folk and such totally exist, though.
I did enjoy the characters, and the imagery was really very good.
The narration was great, though. Bravo on making it fun with accents! 4 Stars there.
Overall, I regrettably can’t give this more than 2.5 - 3 Stars, but I do still acknowledge that it was a pretty fun journey.
