Hallo, Hallo dear hearts!
I had so much going on this first week of *October!* – from a migraine to the tides of life – I effectively *forgot!* I had signed on for this lovely s/o announcement! The key reason I even was able to trigger a memory of the signup is when I read the gifted surprises for those who are participating in the giveaway attached to it!
I happen to love the legend, the lore & the symbolism attached to the Claddagh ring which I first learnt about when I watched the Hallmark Channel film “Daniel’s Daughter” starring Sebastian Spence, as this particular kind of ring has significance in the story-line. A slight bit of personal irony is this was just shy a few years of a fourth removed cousin finding my Mum and re-connecting our own ancestral lore of being Irish. Turnt out, we’re Irish as they come and that was a lovely confirmation for me as I’ve felt so dearly attached to Celtic Mythology, Celtic music & this particular ring (as I researched the origins, the stories & everything interconnected to it) since I first saw the forementioned film. And, yes, I have a copy of the dvd – courtesy of intuitive parents!
Thereby, when I spied one of the prizes attached, I thought – ooh yes, I need to look into the premise of this one and see how it interconnects to the Emerald Isle!
I happen to love finding Paranormal Romances – it isn’t oft I find ones involving the fey as in recent years I’ve been happily enjoying the Urban Fantasy series ‘Tipsy Fairy Tales’ which has cheeky humour and delightful drama!
Being a reader who is tempted to read darker Fantasy Lit but finding her traction within the realms of #DarkFantasy to be a complicated road to walk – when I saw this particular story going up for a blitz I was hopeful I might learn a bit more about it and might find myself being inspired to read it when it eventually goes into an edition I can read. As you will gather – I think I have accomplished answering my questions about its contents but what is rather keenly lovely is the extract I selected for you to read – to see if perchance this title appeals to you?
This is October – a time for finding #SpooktasticReads & the stories which might take us outside our comfort zones a bit whilst we embrace the spookier side of literature! I love Gothic stories & I do love the paranormal – sometimes I find myself mistrustful of the fey (as they do not have a strict ethical code!) but I must admit – ahead of our #WyrdAndWonder mini-event – this one just felt wicked fascinating!
Subtitle: I never believed in fairies,.. until I was kidnapped by one.
by H.G. Lynch
My grandma always warned me never to trust a Faery. I never believed they were real…until I was kidnapped by one.
Finn is an obnoxious, mercurial Fae whose job it is to bring me to the King. He’s gorgeous, but in this world, the prettiest things are the deadliest.
But if I want to survive the Fae realm and find a way home, I’ll have to trust him…for now.
