Faelorehn

Rating: 5/5 Quills
Author: Jenna Elizabeth Johnson

Official Smashwords Plot Description:

     Meghan Elam has been strange her entire life: her eyes have this odd habit of changing color and she sees and hears things no one else does. When the visions and voices in her head start to get worse, she is convinced that her parents will want to drag her off to another psychiatrist. That is, until the mysterious Cade MacRoich shows up out of nowhere with an explanation of his own.

Review

     I can honestly say that I am very glad Faelorehn was my first ebook. Yes, you read that right my first ebook. At first I was a bit apprehensive about the whole ebook craze, I was a bit of a traditionalist in the sense that you should be able to hold a book in your hands and flip the pages; Faelorehn proved me wrong. Perhaps it was the handsome and mysterious Cade or the quirky Meghan Elam with her shifting eyecolour and strange 'visions' that hooked me on Faelorehn. But there is certainly no doubt about how much I loved this book. A good book should give you chills and goosebumps, while immersing you so deeply in the story that you can't help but turn another page. If this is the definition of a good book then Faelorehn is the epitome of a great book. I got chills following Meghan on her journey to discover who she actualy was and couldn't help but turn the page. Johnson effortlessly wove in Celtic mythology, giving the story a touch of reality in fiction. Yes, I know mythology isn't exactly reality but it certainly has a basis in reality and its role in Faelorehn certainly added to this richly woven story. I would definitley recommend reading Faelorehn and experiencing the magic Johnson weaves yourself!

  1. Did you read it from a tablet? I've been thinking about getting a Kindle, but I'm worried that I won't be as connected to the story. Its reassuring to hear that you still loved the book though :)
    I love reading mythology and history based stories so I'll add this to my list :)

    1. I actually downloaded an app onto my android smart phone and read it from there. I was concerned at first as well that if I couldn't feel the pages in my hands then I wouldn't be connected to the story. But honestly I felt just as connected to the book as I flicked through the pages on screen, as I would have if I had actually been holding a paper version of the book. Don't be afraid to try out the ebook craze I'm discovering so many new authors that I wouldn't ever have discovered if I hadn't tried ebooks.
