The Hunter's Moon by O R Melling

Gwen travels to Ireland to visit her cousin Findabhair, expecting a summer of backpacking, late nights, and the usual road trip adventures. But when Findabhair is kidnapped by the King of Faerie, Gwen must race to save her cousin before the rise of the Hunter's Moon, when the fairies need a human sacrifice.

Of all genres (and I read quite a few different genres) fantasy has to be my favourite and of all fantasy those set in the world of faerie rank among my top 3! So this was perfect, this is a young adult series but, I'm a fan of those too!

Gwen is the main character along with her cousin Findabhair(also the name of the authors daughter) however, Findabhair gets kidnapped in Tara so Gwen must go it alone and Gwen has also to rescue her cousin, Finn. Even though Finn doesn't want to be rescued but, needs must!

The descriptions of Ireland were great having never been there it gave me a little sense of adventure! And I did actually read the reviews on this before reading it and it was actually even better than what I was expecting. I noticed some reviews said it was very unrealistic well ummm maybe they should be looking up the word 'fantasy' in the dictionary he he

I really enjoyed this and whether or not you believe in faeries its a great fantasy tale in faerieland!

I have had this series for a long time now. I truly enjoyed it. It made me want to give up everything here and just move to Ireland!

I hope you enjoy the other 2 books in the series!

Great series, huh? I really liked this book. I still haven't read the last book, though. Really need to remedy that!

Yes this definitely sounds like something I would enjoy. Thanks for the review Clare as I hadn't heard of it before.
