"When Breen Kelly was a girl, her father would tell her stories of magical places. Now she's mired in student debt and working a job she hates. She discovers her mother has been hiding an investment account in her name, funded by her long-lost father-- and it's worth nearly four million dollars. She uses some of the money to journey to Ireland, and begins to understand why she kept seeing that silver-haired, elusive man, why she imagined his voice in her head saying Come home, Breen Siobhan. Why she dreamed of dragons. Breen's true destiny leads through a portal in Galway that takes her to a land of faeries and mermaids, to a man named Keegan... and to the courage in her own heart that will guide her through a powerful, dangerous destiny.

I know Nora Roberts likes Ireland and make believe, but this book was very plodding. The ending was horrible. I was looking for another CD. I thought I had lost one. Roberts is one of my favorite authors but, this book was very disappointing. Probably won't listen to the other books. I also don't watch tv shows that have the story line running from week to week. Come to a conclusion.

I liked this one and will read the next but the main character's romantic relationship is off to a slow start and the sex scene was bland and the "conflict"/violent scene was rather bland. This is NOT a laurell k Hamilton type book it is way more PG rated my opinion perhaps this helps the author appeal to a wider audience. I like any magical fantasy set mostly in Ireland and I thought it was well-written. I hope we don't have to wait a year for book 2.

Bland as tap water! This one is missing Robert's sparkling banter and believable characters. Instead, the plot is plodding and the fantasy aspect is underdeveloped. There are also odd sentence structures that kept distracting me. To top it off, Breen is a disappointing heroine and Keegan is flat. I'll pass on the next book in this forgettable series.

If you felt like you read this book before you have, the only difference in this story has Wers, Fairies, Eleves, Flying Dragons and Feys added to the plot. The hero is dashing as usual and the heroine object of the bad guy, who wants her magicks and the other worlds. It's to bad Nora didn't write this series before her other magick series with witches, vamps, etc. It will be interesting to see if the next two books are as predictable as this one was.
