On to my Bookanista Shout out for TO RIDE A PUCA by Heather McCorkle:
Invaders are coming to take what isn't theirs, again.Why I liked it:
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?
This is a fabulous YA historical paranormal romance that is as sexy and dark as it is fantastical. Set against the history of the druid clans near the end of its time, this story examines young love, coming of age, and reconciling that which you have learned from your parents vs that which you discover on your own. I enjoyed the characters of the story, as well as the mythology woven intricately throughout the story. And yes, this is definitely a sexy story that stayed with me for days afterwards.
And tell me, what are you reading these days?
