"The seasons are changing. The lines are faltering, undoing the old and bringing life to the new. Trees will fall, and changed earth will be left in their place. A storm is coming."

Finn doesn't remember much about her previous life, and in a world that has been changed by the wars of the Tuatha De, where trust is hard to come by, answers are even more difficult to find. Little does she know, an unknown evil tugs on the strings of fate, and the answers she so desperately seeks may be more important than she could have ever imagined.

About the Author:

My Review: 
I really wanted to love this.  It starts out with a girl who was a tree who turns into a girl and I was like YES PLEASE!! This is like totally new and fresh. But, shortly after that this book started going downhill.  I could get behind her going to where she was being pulled to and I really loved all the characters but the story/plot itself just wasn't working for me.  At one point they have to put their trip on hold because all of a sudden there is a plot twist that really just made this one fall apart.  

This is the issue that I have with indie books some are really good and then you get the ones that failed to really work.  I think that if the author went back and did some major edits and just cleaned up the pacing etc. That this could be an amazing title.  But as it sits for at least me it just failed to give me what I was looking for. 

Editorial Reviews for this Epic Adventure:
The Book Mage: Of this epic fantasy romance, they wrote, "This series is set in a world based around Celtic mythology and folklore, so it has tons of fairies and other creatures running around in it. I'm Irish so once I recognized the use of Irish words and folklore in it, I just fell in love. I have been hunting for a good book based on celtic folklore for a while now so this book has made me rather happy. Also it has proper fairies in it. Not the sparkly nice kind, but the ones that will kidnap you and generally mess with people."
