She's about to find out she's also a cloverhand—one who can see faeries. Deirdre finds herself infatuated with a mysterious boy who enters her ordinary suburban life, seemingly out of thin air. Trouble is, the enigmatic and gorgeous Luke turns out to be a gallowglass—a soulless faerie assassin. An equally hunky—and equally dangerous—dark faerie soldier named Aodhan is also stalking Deirdre. Sworn enemies, Luke and Aodhan each have a deadly assignment from the Faerie Queen. Namely, kill Deirdre before her music captures the attention of the Fae and threatens...
My thoughts: When I picked up this book I was Skeptical.Mainly because of the cover. But Maggie is such a great author I knew I had to give it a chance.
I have to say I was hooked, right away!
I wanted to know why Deirdre a harpist, suddenly met Luke. Out of the blue just cam into the bathroom and was helping her. Most guys hear someone throwing up and they think, eating disorder. But he came in and held her hair for her...How sweet and weird all at the same time.
He disappears and reappears all the time and he saves her many times from different things are attacking Dee.
I thought it was some Alice in Wonderland thing when Luke started talking to a rabbit...And I'm sure Dee was just as confused.
James, I love him..sounds so dreamy and loving.....He's that boy you never give a chance at love because he is your best friend. But you know they always turn out to be your true love match and I hope that's what happens between Dee and James.
It;s sad that her family is torn apart in this book. They really need to face facts and come together but they go against on another..losing one.
My Rating: 3 stars
