The MacAlpin women are of a fierce clan, born from a rare bloodline that harbors a dark and powerful secret – a mystical heirloom called the Moon Pendant. It is the key to controlling the MääGord standing stones, a magical Portal into the Otherworld, the realm of the Fae.
Anabel and Izzy MacAlpin are two sisters, polar opposites, living separate lives.
Anabel’s life is going precisely according to her plan, a ring on her finger from her steady beau, Edgar, and medical school in the fall.
Izzy’s life is filled with scars and wounds from her past. Dubbed the “spare child” by her family and treated poorly, she rebelled, and now lives life by her own rules.
These two sisters’ worlds are about to explode when one of them must go to Scotland and fulfill her duty as the Guardian of the Moon Pendant, by recharging this magical heirloom with four elementals, air, earth, water, and fire, and then finally close the Portal.
There’s only one problem…
The Baobhan Sith – a vampiric faery who lures men in with her hypnotic voice, feeding on their blood or transforming them into Màrmann, her zombie-like warriors who do her bidding – desires the Moon Pendant to take control over the Portal, opening a gateway into the realm of man, helping her to seek revenge on the MacAlpin clan, and to quench her eternal thirst for human blood.
Anabel finds herself torn between a sinfully handsome Scottish warrior, Blane and her fiancée, Edgar. Izzy finds herself, angered by her sister’s lack of faith in her.
Both sisters are forced to help one another, but may end up killing each other in the end. Surrounded by an array of good and evil Scottish Fae like a vampiric faery, the Baobhan Sith, zombie-warriors, the Ankou, Dryads, the Fachan, the Ghillie Dhu, Heather Pixies, Leigheas, the Nuckelavee, the Bloody Baron a Red Cap, Stone Faeries, Trows, and Will-o’-the-wisps.
Will these two sisters put aside their differences before the final task to charge the Moon Pendant and close the Portal or will the Baobhan Sith, the vampiric faery, be successful and open the Portal into the Otherworld?
First – I feel that I have to mention the cover. Why? Because it is one of the main reasons that I even wanted to read this book. After reading the synopsis though, I was completely sold. Secondly; I feel that I should point out that this book is so epically NOT like every other magic creature filled book out there. & don’t let the synopsis fool you, you might THINK you know what is going on – but trust me when I say – surprises are in store. I love nothing more than a book that can captivate me and keep me guessing from cover to cover. So if you are out there feeling burnt out and feeling like you are reading the same book over and over; let me introduce you to Laura J. Williams. You will love her (:
The chemistry between the characters in this novel was very well written. I love the dynamic sibling interaction between Anabel and Izzy – it reminds me me and my siblings. I loved every minute of it. Centered around the MacAlpin family, this book holds your interest with kick butt chicks, insightful and humorous dialogue, epic villains and family secrets. What more could you ask for, right?! I don’t think that there was one time where I was bored with this book. I read it in one sitting actually. Which means that there had to be AWESOME just oozing from the pages.
While I know this isn’t a very detailed review, I seriously wanted to give nothing away. This is most def one of those books that you just HAVE to pick up and read on your own. Seriously. GO GET IT. Since I did lack some detail; I will leave you with a quote :D
