 Invaders are coming to take what isn't theirs, again. Neala wants to stand and fight for her homeland, but as one of the last druids, she may be standing alone. Persecuted, hunted down, forced to live in obscurity, the druids have all but given up. Can the determination of a girl who has barely come into her power bring them together? Or, just when she finally finds her place among her kind, will they end up losing a homeland their very magic is tied to?


Hold on to your horses for this wildly entertaining ride.

 A thank you to Heather McCorkle for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

 I love books based on mythology and legends and this one is no exception. 

 Neala has lived a sheltered life, and has been lied to about her Druid heritage. Until Dane Warriors invaded Ireland and Neala's world is turned upside down.

 I loved the characters, Neala is a strong, brave female. Just the kind of girls that I like! I loved Bren, but I also loved Tyr.

 This book was a highly engaging historical fantasy with a little romance, adventure, danger, unexpected twists and some dashing guys. It was fasted paced, I couldn't stop reading it, I was completely submerged in Neala's world. I liked how Neala grew within the story, I like books like that where there's the characters grow within the story.  

 Recommended for YA fans or anyone who likes fantasy.
