In The Forests of the Night - A Review

In The Forests of the Night - Kersten Hamiton (Author)


The battle against goblinkind continues . . . but which side will Teagan be on?

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. Tea 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 Thoughts:

We learned so much more on Teagen in this book and I really feel as if I know and understand her character much better now. Finn is still the same ole charming Irish boy as he was in the first book. Mameio intrigues me and I'm finding I want to get more story on her as well as Teagan's brother Aiden.

I hope we get to see more of Mag Mell. That worlds intrigues me. There is so much fantasy there and I want to explore it all.

I did sometimes fell a bit overwhelmed with the amount of characters to keep straight but I found them all to be interesting enough that it didn't bother me too much.

Again I find myself drawn into Kersten's storytelling. While not nearly as action packed as the first book, I still really enjoyed this one and look forward to reading book three.
