I liked this book but I found it difficult to get into. We are told events rather than witnessing the characters experiencing things going on around them. The plot is enjoyable but slow, however by 70% of the way in the suspense, drama and action increased tenfold and it was impossible to put the book down.
Luc and Brigid were working together better as she had her memories back and I liked them as a couple. I just felt that the author spent too much time building the story that a reader could easily stop reading before they get to the good stuff.
Finola and Ophelia were entertaining characters and I enjoyed their banter.
The podcasts were an odd but quirky and fun addition to the story.
I recommend this book if you like witch stories, magic, fantasy, and books set in Ireland.
