About:

The story of two girl cousins who go on an adventure to see if the Irish world of Faerie is real. One of the cousins gets kidnapped by the faerie king (*gasp*), and the other cousin decides to rescue her cousin, going on a journey to do so…

My Review:

This was one of those books that was good in some areas, but not so great in other areas. *sad face* The descriptions could be so beautiful. The author gave many enchanting portrayals of  the world of Faerie. Her wording was gorgeous, and, as a fellow writer, I could not help but wish I could write just as prettily today one day. It was also interesting seeing all of the Irish elements, and how the Irish characters came off as authentic, using Irish phrases and whatnot.

Also, there’s a leprechaun. An urban city leprechaun. O_o

However, while this story had such overall potential, it lacked in the flow. The story felt quite a bit choppy in places, moving so fast that it felt like it was missing pieces to connect the jumps. It wasn’t missing plot stuff, but it felt like something could have added to it. I think the author could have given a little more time to parts of the story. She had the talent to write descriptions, but it seemed as if she was in a rush to keep the story going, and the end result was not a smooth as it could have been story. Romance that happened too quick was one of the biggest issues of this. 😛

I give “The Hunter’s Moon” by O.R. Melling a rating of three.
