“Mckenna’s never thought much of her nightmares, but on her seventeenth birthday, a vivid dream of burning at the stake awakens her dormant abilities, thrusting her into a world where faeries are real, spirits hold a grudge, and a High Priestess obsessed with a 16th-century prophecy is tracking her every move.
Now, her overprotective dads, Seán and Andre, are forced to tell her the truth—they know who her birth mother is, and her life is not the surrogate story she’s always been told. Abigail, Mckenna’s mom, is some sort of mystic, and Mckenna a Wise One.
Whatever the hell that means.
With the help of a persistent little wren and company of a newfound friend, Mckenna journeys to Ireland in search of her mother and real answers. Along the way, she learns to harness her innate magic and trust her intuition, as best she can anyway—Cillian, a kind and passionate delegate who crosses her path, is proving much harder to read.
Only her mother could truly help her halt her ill fate and prepare her for what’s to come…before she gives in to the darkness she knows is buried deep within.”
One of my favorite things about reading is that with each book, I am picked up out of my comfortable chair and transported to different places around the world. I’m invited into homes and let in on secrets. I’m allowed to learn the histories of different peoples and the folklore that is passed down from generation to generation.
The Wise One was all of the above for me. I was in the mood for a little magic and it provided just that. Sometimes when I’ve read a YA book, I’ve felt like I was reading a YA book (does that make sense?) but I didn’t have that feeling with this novel.
I relished in the authors writing style and her ability to bring to light so many relevant topics. On several occasions, I had to stop reading and evaluate the true importance of what was occurring in the book and how it relates to the world that I live in.
