In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton Review

Hardcover, 288 pages
Expected publication: November 22nd 2011 by Clarion
Owned : ARC

Book Description:

Teagan, Finn, and Aiden have made it out of Mag Mell alive, but the Dark Man's forces are hot on their heels. Back in Chicago, Tea’s goblin cousins show up at her school, sure she will come back to Mag Mell, as goblin blood is never passive once awoken. Soon she will belong to Fear Doirich and join them. In the meantime, they are happy to entertain themselves by trying to seduce, kidnap, or kill Tea’s family and friends.
Teagan knows she doesn’t have much time left, and she refuses to leave Finn or her family to be tortured and killed. A wild Stormrider, born to rule and reign, is growing stronger inside her. But as long as she can hold on, she’s still Teagan Wylltson, who plans to be a veterinarian and who heals the sick and hurting. The disease that’s destroying her—that’s destroying them all—has a name: Fear Doirich.
And Teagan Wylltson is not going to let him win

My Review:

It was hard for me to rate for a number of reason but manly because the first half of the book was excellent but the second half wasn't as good.

The book was good overall but I felt, at times, that it dragged and I was afraid the distractions were going to make me want to forget the story altogether.

However, I was surprised by how funny the story was compared to Tyger Tyger; I couldn't get enough of the characters. I respected them all so much, especially Finn. Such a unique guy. I find myself giving all the stars to him. His and Tea's relationship was both mature and silly at the same time and I loved that. Abby, Tea's best friend, was admiring and Aiden, Tea's little brother, was the coolest little man ever!

I will post a more detailed review close to release date.

  1. I too love it when the characters are so likable. Makes a story that much better. I will definitely have to read this one.
