the forgotten ones

Allison O’Malley’s plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison’s mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn’t trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother’s sanity.

I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed this book. I could have done with a little more explanation in to the world of the fey, at times I was confused as to who was in the room. I got mixed up with names too. The story itself was interesting and unique. It unfolded well and left me wanting more.

This book had a few too many cliches though, girl and boy like each other but girl pushes boy away because her life is super complicated. I think the read would have been better if they had either been friends and nothing more or a couple, getting through it together.

I liked Ethan he seemed sweet under the mask of a bad boy.

Alison was not my favourite character, she was rude to her friends and led Ethan on. Even so he was always there when she needed him.

I would buy the next book.

Four out of five stars.
