Great New Urban Fantasy!

9780062358790_p0_v1_s114x166[1]When Caitlin Brady’s daughter, Fiona, is kidnapped by oíche-sidhe, she finds her fate lies in the hands of Brendan, a mysterious kilted stranger. Caitlin’s everyday world seems suddenly peopled by terrifying creatures she thought only existed in fairytales. Yet, help also arrives from unexpected places, like her dear friend and confidante, Edward, a doctor by day and a fledging wizard in secret.

This breathless, action-packed novel introduces a mysterious fairy world that coexists with our own. Plausible characters and a fascinating back story suck the reader in as unexpected plot twists make the pages speed by.  O’Connell’s descriptions engage all the senses, creating an almost tangible impression. The author’s portrayal of Caitlin is particularly sensitive; her character is an eloquent mix of endearing and strong qualities as she faces the possible loss of her only child. Avoiding cliché endings, the conclusion hints at a sequel!
