Stone of Destiny by Laura Howard

Stone of Destiny (The Danaan Trilogy, #2)Book Description:
Allison thought it was crazy enough when she found out her father, Liam, wasn't entirely human. But now she has to join his magical allies to unravel his former mistress's plans. Aoife wants to keep Allison's parents apart forever.

Despite Allison's efforts to keep Ethan, the only guy she's ever cared about, out of this supernatural mess, fate keeps throwing him back into the mix. 

Will Allison be able to find the amulet that holds the enchantment Aoife placed on Liam and destroy it? Are Ethan' s feelings for Allison strong enough to endure the magic of the Tuatha De Danaan?

My Thoughts:
This book picks up right where book one in the series leaves off.  Allison has found out that Aoife has escaped.  Now, Allison has had a lot come her way in a short period of time, learning about a 'new' land and that she is a part of it.  Aoife is determined to keep Allison's parents apart and if she succeeds, Allison's mother will never get better.  Finding and destroying the amulet in the land of Tuatha De Danaan, will be no piece of cake but Allison must do it.
I really enjoyed this new land that the author brought us to.  Her characters are good and I was surprised by Ethan's changes.  He is being a complete jerk to Allison, but maybe it isn't his true feelings he is expressing and someone else is involved.  I liked that the author recapped book one, just in case, but I still say you have to read it first to completely enjoy and understand this book.  The author has a magical writing style that will pull you in and keep you captivated in this land.  
This is a 4/5 for me.  I really enjoyed it, but don't start the series with this book!  Go read book 1, the Forgotten Ones, first!

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via Lady Amber's Tours).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
