Druid by Rebecca F. Kenney review

I really enjoyed book 1 in this series but this book was incredible!

It's clear from the get-go that Aislinn is unsure of what she wants and what she is, and in the story, we get to learn alongside her what she is capable of, and how it affects her.

The Far darrig is an interesting character throughout, helping her along the way even after she turns him away.

I adore their relationship with one another and watching it grow. Some of the scenes between the two breathtaking, such as their meeting with the Kelpies. He's bad for her in so many ways, but he's also lonely and tormented, and I can't help but be drawn to his character. Zane on the other hand is Aislinn's comfort. Someone who makes her feel safe.

He's good for her in ways that the Far darrig is not, but he is also not fair to her asking her to pretend to be something she is not. For me, the choice is easy who I'm rooting for.

This line stuck with me and I adored it. This whole part of the book so action packed, and just... wow! As they drag me away, I catch Kieran's eye. A tear slides down his cheek, soaking into the gag. This, more than anything, breaks me.

This 2nd installment is very fast paced and filled with drama and action, and so many unexpected moments.

I love Rebecca's descriptive paragraphs that paint such a vivid picture in your mind. And then, right in front of me, there's a crack in the blackness. Like the dark grew a giant, horrific, swollen pustule that's bursting open. It's a crooked, narrow fissure, splitting into a thousand hairline fractures at the edges.

I adored this book more than the 1st book which I also loved, and I can't wait to begin book 3, but I also want the story to keep going! UK link US link
