Summary: Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.
Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right.
The goblins are coming.
I really liked the main girl, Teagan. She wasn't annoying like some characters are. She wasn't selfish and she cares a lot about other people. She is also very protective of her younger brother, Aiden. I also liked Aiden a lot, too. He is a young boy about five years old. He has a lot more confidence than most young boys. He was pretty tough and the goblins didn't scare him much. He still had the innocence of a little boy.
Some parts of this book were a little slow. I thought the romance between Finn and Teagan could have been brought out a little more. Besides that, it was a really interesting book. Some parts were really funny.
I would recommend reading this book if you like fantasy or action books. Kersten Hamilton is a great new YA author. I gave this book four coffee cups. It was a pretty good book!
