Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.
My Review:
I received a copy of The Forgotten One’s for an honest review.

Holy smokes this book was so not what I was expecting!!! Faeries! I never would have guessed! Such a great surprise!!!

Allison has lived with her grandparents and her schizophrenic mother her entire life. When she finishes school she wants to be able to take care of her above all else throwing her social life and potential boyfriends away. When he absentee father shows up saying he can cure her mother and Allison wants more than anything to believe in him. When her mother and the boy she’s been in love with forever are taken by evil faeries and Allison starts having dreams of the future Allison realizes everything she used to know  and everything she planned on doing has changed.

The Forgotten One’s was certainly an interesting story and I hope I will be able to read the second book when I can! The whole story with the faeries and people who become immortal was fantastic.

The only issue I had was with Allison because I didn’t really understand her character at all. She was such a negative nancy all the time and so rude to almost to everyone even those who were nice to her I didn’t understand it.

That was the negative aspect about this book because the rest of the story was fantastic and Allison honestly wasn’t even that bad either.

Thank you so much Laura Howard for sending me a copy of your amazing book!
