Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Ashling and Quinn stop to see their Grandfather in the Nursing Home.  Their grandfather favors Ashling and threatens Quinn.  He attacks Quinn so it seems.  However, he quickens her.  Quinn has no idea what he did.  She still takes Ashling to the beach as her graduation present even finding a surfing instructor.  Quinn fears the water after she was attacked by a shark.
Unfortunately, the trip turns into a nightmare when Ashling was dragged under by a shark.  That is what Quinn thought at first.  She is shocked to see the monsters her grandfather used to talk about.  Luke, the surfing instructor, stops Quinn from going after her sister.  She is introduced to a new world she never knew and a prophesy that she is involved in.  She must make difficult decisions for herself and Ashling.  She refuses to give up even as nothing goes a she hopes.

The story was the first in a series called A Celtic Legacy.  Quinn learns what she is and that she is important.  The author makes her face her biggest fear as she tries to get to Ashling.  There are a lot of twists and turns.  The author throws a few surprises at the reader.  It was a short read that didn’t develop Quinn’s character as much as I would have liked.  She seemed very immature to me.  In fact, I thought she was younger than she was.  I had a hard time getting behind her at certain parts of the story.  I didn’t like how she let her fear stop her in crucial moments.  I got disgusted with her at times I will admit.  So, I will be interested to see how she handles the next steps.  I’m not quite sure where the author will take it.  It is a very original story.  I give it a 3 out of 5.
