Teagan Wylltson is a girl with a good head on her shoulders and big plans for her future. When her free-spirited friend Abby tells Teagan about strange, frightening dreams she’s had, Teagan wants to brush her off. But Abby dreams about the paintings Teagan’s dead mother created–and in those dreams, the nightmare creatures in the pictures come to life and try to harm Teagan.
Things only get stranger when Finn Mac Cumhaill shows up at her house and claims to be of the mythic Celtic line of Mac Cumhaills. Now Teagan must confront the truth about her family’s history, protect her little brother from goblins, and deal with her growing feelings for Finn.
This story is such a pleasure to read. It has plenty of twists and turns in the plot (including one big jaw-dropper), but is very character-driven. The relationships between the characters are rich, loving and full of life. Great for teens who love reading mythology and fairy tale retellings.
