Allison O'Malley just graduated from college. Her life's plan is to get a job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She doesn't have room for friends or even Ethan, who clearly wants more.
When Allison's long-lost father shows up, he claims he can bring her mother back from the dark place her mind has sent her. He reveals legends of a race of people long forgotten, the Tuatha de Danaan, along with the truth about why he abandoned her mother.
My Review: The Forgotten Ones had me from the very start I was in love! Could not get enough of this story. I was thrilled to find a little Irish folklore in it as I am of Irish decent. Allison was such an awesome character who found strength just when she didn't think she could hold on anymore. I can say that Laura Howard is a seriously talented author that writes beautifully. She has made a fan out of me! I do however only have one complaint and that is that she does not have another book for me to read.
About the Author
Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn't until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.
