The Forgotten Ones (The Danaan Trilogy, #1) and Stone of Destiny (The Danaan Trilogy, #2) by Laura Howard review ~Kami

The Forgotten Ones (The Danaan Trilogy #1)

by Laura Howard


Allison is twenty-one and her mother suffers from schizophrenia. Her father who never knew of her existence shows up on her doorstep to see her ill mother. This is a short and fast read. The pacing feels a bit rushed but the writing is really good. I liked the characterization a lot. The story was interesting and it drew me in. Usually the first book of a trilogy is the weakest, but I thought this was a pretty good first installment. I am excited to read the next book. 4 stars.

Title: Stone of Destiny
Author: Laura Howard
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours

Synopsis: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 (The Danaan Trilogy #2)

by Laura Howard

Allison's mother is under a curse which makes her seem like she has schizophrenia. An evil fae has escaped. Allison is in love with Ethan but she can't seem to make that work out since Ethan's behavior has changed drastically to cruelty. Since the magical fae Deaghlan is fascinated by Allison, it seemed pretty obvious to me what was up with Ethan. It made me a bit frustrated that Allison was so oblivious to the possibility of what was really happening to Ethan. There was a lot of explanation and exposition in the beginning of the book with made it drag a bit. The writing is good but the pacing is sometimes slow in the beginning then it gets really fast paced towards the middle. The characters are interesting and the story held my interest. All in all a good story and I am ready for the conclusion to this saga. 4 stars.
