Sidhe for Irish Demons

Beneath the Forsaken City

C.E. Laureano

The Song of Seare #2

Conor and Aine have barely escaped Seare with their lives. Conor knows he must return to find the harp that could end the Red Druid’s reign of terror, but in the midst of their escape, he and Aine are torn apart once more. Surrounded by despair and thrown into as much danger as they left behind, Conor and Aine must cling to the whispers of Comdiu’s plans for them and the homeland that depends on their survival.

     Beneath the Forsaken City is the second book in a Celtic fantasy series. A wonderful fantasy series. I love all the elements of Celtic culture she has managed to incorporate into the books. I was so surprised by the idea, but it turned out just wonderfully. One problem with basing it on a Celtic culture is the fact that some of the names of things aren't really pronounceable just by looking at it. Take the time and familiarize yourself with the glossary, totally helpful in the long run.  

     This one is the sequel to Oath of the Brotherhood which is a MUST read before this one. Beneath the Forsaken City  is a sequel is the strictest sense of the word. If you don't, it won't make any sense. If you read in order, you'll be able to pick up where you left off (almost exactly) and get right back into the action.

    Speaking of action, if you don't like action you won't like this series. It is fast paced and never really slows down (sometimes I felt the need to put the book down for a moment and think about what was happening). Even if you don't reread, this is a book you'll finish and then pick back up so you can be sure you got everything. It is not a book to just be read in snatches, you need to sit down with it and lo-ove it. 

    This series is just so amazing, and I loved every single bit of it. Familiarize yourself with the map and glossary and have a blast!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my free review.  Enjoy reading! Don't forget to click on the cover for an excerpt.
