Age of Saints: Druid’s Brooch Series: #7 by Christy Nicholas
4 out of 5 stars
This book has a unique twist on how it presents itself to its reader. This is the 7th book in the Druid’s series. This series is essentially the same story that is told from the points of view from multiple family members in different points in history.
These books are not in chronological order, therefore they can be read standalone, however, as a reader, I feel that it is always best to read a book/series in the order the author wrote them in.
This book, and really this whole series, is heavily laced in history and fokelore is beyond breathtaking and it adds a rich element to the story that builds creates deepth.
Conall and Lainn are the main characters of this story. They are brother and sister who are on the run from a terrible step-father. Conall has inherited the brooch. He is struggling to protect Lainn from their abuse step-father. This story is an emotional rollar coaster. I am an older sibling. i related to this story on a deeper lever for the need to protect a younder sibling. The paranormal, magic and intirgue in this story makes you want to keep turning the page over and over again.
Fantasy lovers will love this book and series. History lover will appreciate the details of this series and both will love how they combine into one beautiful series!
