THE FORGOTTEN ONES by LAURA HOWARD
The Forgotten Ones - Laura Howard

I'm confused with the title. Is the mother forgotten? Who exactly is forgotten?

I hate it when a heroine second guesses a romance, then says she is going to go for it, then does the opposite and there was definitely that going on here.

The books ends with a cliffhanger which since I was on the fence about this book makes me not want to pick up the next for awhile.

I liked the relationship that was developing between Allison and her father.

I think I'm just too old and critical for this book.

even better than the first!
Stone of Destiny - Laura Howard

I received a review copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl

I adore this trilogy! It's going to be bittersweet for me when the third book comes out - I'm excited to read it but don't want this series to end! In this second book of the trilogy, Stone of Destiny, Allison is as awesome as ever and the story was so easy to get back into. It's been a while since I read the first book, but I had no difficulty jumping back into Allison's world with just a couple quick reminders at the beginning of the book woven into Allison's narration. 

Aoife is still causing trouble, and her main mission is to keep Allison's parents apart so she can have Allison's father, Liam, all to herself. She wants the kind of love that is rare for the Danaan to have, but the problem is Liam isn't in love with her. I don't understand why she doesn't just give up, but she doesn't seem to be the type who's reasonable, hence all the trouble she stirs up. 

Allison is the kind of heroine you love to read about. She puts others first, is loyal and loving with her family, and stands on her own two feet. She doesn't need a guy to prop her up. I understand her reasons for keeping Ethan at arm's length to prevent him from getting tangled up in the supernatural mess she's in herself. She doesn't want anyone else she cares about getting hurt, and I admire that about her. I feel like I know her well, and I'll always be on her side!

Deaghlan, kind of the Danaans, is a mystery. He's infuriating yet charming at the same time, and like no other character I can think of. I can tell Allison is unaware of the effect she has on him; why else does she think he bothers to mess with her head? And he does it on a regular basis. For all of his talk about humans being lesser than the Danaans, he seems to be jealous of one human in particular... 

I was so happy to see characters again from the first book like Nicole, Niamh, and Aodhan - they're my favorite ones. I felt like I was reunited with good friends. I liked having the opportunity to get to know Allison's father, Liam, better. There's some things about him I haven't quite figured out yet. 

I enjoyed Stone of Destiny even more than the first book. The plot impressed me with all of the twists and turns - I FLEW through this book. It was over before I knew it because I just couldn't put it down. Devouring it in one sitting, I'm beyond satisfied with the action, the humor, and the touch of romance. This book has everything, and I'm looking forward to the next one!

Stone of Destiny (The Danaan Trilogy) (Volume 2)
Stone of Destiny (The Danaan Trilogy) (Volume 2) - Laura Howard I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.

Stone of Destiny was fabulous. I couldn't give it a full 5 stars because I need a bit more drama, but overall I was still impressed.

Allison is still a determined young lady. In this book she is more open to trusting Liam and is still working hard to help her mother be reunited with him without a curse. Allison has her moments where she afraid, but she never lets it overtake her mind and her "mission" -- she is definitely a strong female character.

Ethan is such a sweetheart! I love him and his relationship with Allison. They are such a perfect couple. He made sure to stay with Allison the whole time through her ordeal with the Dannans. His secret crush he had on her was super adorable. Ethan is definitely a hottie in my eyes.

Liam is such an amazing father. Even though he didn't know about his daughters he made an effort to get to know them and become the father he couldn't be at the time of their childhood. He definitely a respectable man and has kudos from me!

Samantha, the long lost secret daughter of Liam and Aoife, seemed fishy at first to me. I thought she was there to help her mother, but the more I read on I began to like her. She only wanted to meet her blood family and make amends with them. What she did towards the end to help Allison and Liam was very awesome.

Aoife is a crazy lady! I mean what woman gives up her child because she doesn't want the baby to steal the attention from her lover? I purely hate Aoife, but she played the deranged, jealous woman to a T.

Saoirse is freaking horrible! How could she help her daughter knowing what her daughter did is wrong. I kind of understand from the parent POV, but at the same time, whether she has emotions or not, she should have reprimanded her daughter. Not help her escape and destroy humans. Such foolishness. Even though she still helps Allison I just think she should have never helped Aoife, but simply keep her in that damn Fey globe.

I definitely need to know what happens next. Is Liam died? Where is Samantha? Does Aoife do the binding? Does Allison go back? Does Aodhan agree to be with Niamh? Just so many unanswered questions!
