From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of 44 Chapters About 4 Men (inspiration for the Netflix Original series Sex/Life) comes a dark mafia romance steeped in Irish folklore.

I can’t remember anymore if my grandfather’s eyes were blue or green, but I’ll never forget the way they wrinkled at the corners when he laughed at one of his own jokes. Or the way they sparkled with mischief when he told me tales about the magical creatures that dwelled in the forest behind his humble Irish sheep farm—shy fairies who liked to eat tea biscuits, cruel witches who liked to eat children, a moody lake spirit with a taste for expensive gifts.

As a child, I believed every fantastical word. But when he warned me about the mute boy who also lurked in those woods, the one the priest had declared to be the spawn of Satan himself, I refused to listen. Kellen wasn’t evil. He was kind, and beautiful, and special, and hurting. He was my friend. And with every summer I spent stolen away with him in those enchanted woods, he grew to become so much more.

But when I return to Glenshire as an adult, grieving and engaged to someone else, all those legends quickly morph into nightmares.

My grandfather had been right about everything, especially the boy.

If only I had listened.

I don't really know how to go about the writing up of this review. It's not something I would generally read, but that being said I loved the fact that this author always takes risks, her books aren't conventional when it comes to the usual category of where they would fit within and this one was no different.

I didn't really get what I thought I'd signed up for, I got so much more, I went into this with an open mind, thinking the story was going one way when it's flipped on it's axel and it goes in a direction I wasn't ready for, with the folklore mysteriously steepled within this book, the old witch in the woods, the lough/lake had me wanting more. It all just added to this unusual magical unique storyline. And for that reason alone is why this book gets my 5 star rating.

This book won't be for everyone, for me it wasn't dark or gritty but for others the trigger warning is there for a reason.

Onto the storyline...

As a young eight year old, Darby Collins attended her first funeral of her grandmother's, in Ireland, a place where she'd never been before. A daughter of a drummer in a one hit band whom she'd not seen as a young child. And a mother whom was a teacher raising Darby single handedly.

She meets her grandfather for the first time as he spins a tale about the fairies who live in the forest beyond his property sending Darby off with a biscuit in hand searching for a fairy ring to place her sweet treat in, in the hopes of luring said fairy out.

She never does encounter a fairy that day but a boy named Kellen curled up on the floor of an old abandoned building in the forest. But with her wild imagination with his unusual eye colour and the fact that he doesn't talk she believes he is in fact a fairy.

For a few years as Darby and her mother come back to Ireland every summer to visit her grandfather, Darby and Kellen form an unbreakable bond.

But as the story goes her visits abruptly stopped, and still that lonely mute boy waited for her to come back to him.

Years go by until they meet again under much darker circumstances. Gone is the boy and in his place is a much darker version of the boy she used to know.

Kellen is like no one I have ever encountered before, your drawn to him beyond reason, from the boy to the man they are worlds apart, he'd jumped out of the pan into the fire and became someone unrecognisable with the skills which had been forced upon him. My heart went out to him, the misunderstood boy, pegged as the devil, ostracised by the community and the small girl with the vivid imagination who underwent a traumatic life changing experience which didn't harden her or tarnish her beautiful light. These two characters were made for each other..
