Not only do the characters eventually make their way to Ireland, but the story also uses myths, AND the author is Irish. Carol Oates is an awesome lady and so sweet. She rest assured that I would try anything she’s written after reading this one.
This was an awesome book. I really enjoyed the overall story and the fact that it used a pretty amazing myth. Oh, and from what I’ve heard, book 2 is also supposed to lead them to their ancestors homeland which is… you guessed it, Ireland.
Again, another fun book that uses a pretty interesting myth or legend as it’s theme, is set in Ireland, and is written by an Irish author. A triple threat!
Anyone who has read this blog knows how much I adore Maggie Stiefvater. Her writing his gorgeous and she has a way of making the supernatural and these legends seem not only plausible, but real. So, of course I had to choose her book about Irish water horses. It was amazing and a little squiggy at times, but still such a great read. OH and following that note…
These books are based off another Irish legend and Maggie manages to put her own amazing take on it and I just love it! Book 2, The Dream Thieves, is coming out this September!
