Feisty, smart mouth Regan thought that breaking up with her boyfriend Sam was going to be the start of her independence. Instead, she is manipulated and dragged into a world where sharp, sarcastic wit isn't going to save her. Turning to her Gram for help, the only remaining relative she has, Regan is upset to find out that her grandmother has been keeping family secrets of her own all these years.
With a vengeful goddess using people to try and bring Regan to the Underworld, Gram brings in three Guardians to protect her. Given the short version of what is expected of her, loaded with a lot of expectations for her future, Regan knows first-hand that life is too short. She isn't letting anyone make life-altering decisions for her despite finding out that the vengeful goddess has placed a price on her head.
This book will make you laugh, feel connected to the characters, and leave you wanting more.
Great read!! I have recommended this book to several family and friends already. Keep up the great writing and I'll continue to keep reading the story. Cheers!!!! - Goodreads
A definite 5 Star book. The depth of the story and characters grabs you, once I started reading I couldn't stop!!! - Goodreads
Despite declaring to those closest to her that she will take her position as Queen, Regan’s first priority is not to rule, but to find her parents. With Jake at her side, she is determined to learn how to use her new powers and hide from her destiny, as well as the Council, a little while longer.
Unfortunately, someone has been watching and reporting every move Regan makes. She is disheartened to find out the Council is already eagerly awaiting her arrival in Ireland and have apparently started to plan her future…one that does not include Jake.
Regan must decide just how much she is willing to sacrifice to protect her people from a vengeful goddess, while also weeding out the traitor among them. In the end, will she have the strength to withstand losing any of them?
There is so much that I loved about this entire series. Erin Manbeck managed to write these books with great detail to description and detail. Each book is steady in the telling of the story, yet moved at a pace that kept me entirely hooked. - Goodreads
Regan’s arrival in Ireland may have heightened her powers, but it has also given Agrona and her minions more cause to make sure she never makes it to her coronation. With every attack and the harsh welcome she receives from the council, Regan is more determined than ever to prove why the deities have chosen her to be the Queen.
Although, part of her has accepted that she may have to make the ultimate sacrifice, it isn't until Regan finds herself in the Otherworld being handed over to Agrona that the reality hits her. Will Jake and her family survive without her?
I have really enjoyed this trilogy and am gutted its finished but it was a journey I won't forget in a hurry.
what I liked was this book wasn't predictable you worked out what was going on just as the characters did it's not like in the end there's a major battle between light and dark, it's more connecting the dots and outwitting the enemy. - Goodreads
I found each book in this trilogy was very hard to put down. The plot, the story, and the characters were very well developed. Glad this wasn't another fantasy story about werewolves and vampires. - Goodreads
I’m an author in hiding…I still work full time, but don’t ever look over my shoulder to see what’s on my computer screen. Chances are you will find me secretly writing.
Besides family and friends, I love to laugh. It may be at the expense of those I love, but they get me, so I usually don’t offend too much.
Honesty…I can’t help it. I usually say way I feel, but with a little guidance, I’ve learned to be more tactful.
I’ve worked in plenty of environments (trucking company, correction officer and I was in the military to mention a few) so I guess you can say that’s where my mouth and attitude come from. Either way, as long as I get my morning cup of coffee people are safe.
The Trilogy is complete and I also have a new stand-alone book called “Dreamless”. It’s a Paranormal Suspense that’s a bit lighter on the language, but will keep you guessing who the Nightmare really is.
