Synopsis from Goodreads:
And sometimes the Strange came to visit Clare, and dreams walked through her waking life.
After years of living in America, Clare Macleod and her father are returning to Ireland, where they’ll inhabit the house Clare was born in—a house built into a green hillside with a tree for a wall. For Clare, the house is not only full of memories of her mother, but also of a mysterious boy with raven-dark hair and dreamlike nights filled with stars and magic. Clare soon discovers that the boy is as real as the fairy-making magic, and that they’re both in great danger from an ancient foe.
Fast-paced adventure and spellbinding prose combine to weave a tale of love, loyalty, and the strength we carry within ourselves.
What I Thought:
I received an advanced copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
This book started out great but really felt like a middle grade when I was reading. I wasn’t expecting that, so I kept trying to continue reading it and I just didn’t like it. I’ve read and liked middle grade before, but the writing for this one just put me off.
