This is a truly enjoyable book. I got swept up in the plot and could not put it down. I actually care about the characters and their relationships and I’m looking forward to the next in the series. Solid job. 4 stars.
Dagda’s Daughter (Raven and Hummingbird Book 2) by Nikki Broadwell – Review by Gail Guerrero
Dagda’s Daughter is set in a time when people truly had faith. The mythology mixed with the Celtic really made the story pop. You have a God living amongst humans breaking all the rules. When girls turn a certain age dads lose their sparkle. Words go in one ear and out the other. What makes it even more difficult is that Katel is coming into her powers and there is no telling how mighty they will be. I enjoyed the story and all the adventure. What really held my attention was the growth throughout the story. There was so much to learn as the characters came into their own. The fight to stop the Light Snatchers from taking the color from all worlds was icing on the cake. The author pieced this fast paced story together with what seems like effortless wonder. The details and creativity put into the pages if this story is great.
Dagda’s Daughter is the second book in the Raven and Hummingbird Series by Nikki Broadwell. This story is a clever fantasy- woven with plenty of action, adventure, secrets, discovery, Gods/Goddesses, magic, emotion, different realms, Celtic mythology, intrigue, and father/daughter/family dynamics. It could be read as a standalone, but as the first book “Siobhan’s Secret” has a lot of backstory and other relevant and interesting details, I would really recommend reading that book first before beginning this one.
Dagda is a God who fell in love with a mortal. A human called Siobhan. They have a daughter, Katel- who is now an adult, half-goddess and has no idea of what she is capable of. There is much more to this situation, but I really don’t want to ruin it for you by giving too much away. But as usual, Ms. Broadwell kept me engaged the whole way through.
I can’t wait to dive into “Kat’s Conundrum” (Book 3), it’s set to be quite intriguing.
Thank you, Ms. Broadwell!

Dagda’s Daughter (Raven and Hummingbird Book 2) by Nikki Broadwell
I really enjoyed this fantasy novel by Nikki Broadwell, it was full of Celtic mythology and mystical beings, surrounding the tales of the Celtic all father god, Dagda.
Dagda although a god has decided to live on Earth as away of giving himself maximum power and as a way of controlling his daughter Katel. Katel is herself on the brink of developing her immense power as a half-goddess. Due to Dagda’s actions on Earth, he has broken all the rules regarding humans and gods, the light snatchers have appeared and will leach the colour from all worlds if not stopped.
I could not turn the pages quick enough when reading this story it was fast paced and had great characters, I found Katel particularly likeable and found myself caring about her fate. The storyline really swept me along, and I was immersed in Broadwell’s magical world of gods, goddesses and magic.
I found the use of Celtic and Norse mythology fascinating and used alongside the fantasy worlds created, like the Otherworld and with our human world mixed in it made this a captivating story.
I have not read the first book in this series but this novel works well on its own, however I so enjoyed this book and the magical settings that Broadwell conjured up that I will now read book one and am looking forward to reading the third one in the ‘Raven and Hummingbird’ series.
A five star read, and one I will definitely recommend.
Dagda’s Daughter: Raven and Hummingbird Book 2
by Nikki Broadwell
This story was full of magic, romance, betrayal, and love. I was taken on a great adventure while reading this story. I didn’t want to put this book down, there were twists and turns I just couldn’t get enough of. There wonderful characters in this book I wanted Katel to figure out who she was and the power she possesses. Her father’s actions are causing trouble on earth and otherworld, but he can’t see past the love he has for Siobhan. The author does an amazing job pulling you into this story. I can’t wait to read the next one, I highly recommend this book!
Dagda’s Daughter (Raven and Hummingbird Book 2) by Nikki Broadwell. This book has a little of everything from magic, spells, mythology, gods, war and danger. Its the story of the Celtic Father God Dagda who has moved himself on Earth to be the major power. In doing so he has broken all the rules regarding humans and Gods all the while trying to keep his daughter Katel under his power as well. She is becoming stronger and stronger and he doesn’t know if he can continue to control her. His illegal actions have caused bad people to surface and they are going to try to destroy the world. This is a great book about Father/daughter relationships in the Spiritual World and its also very entertaining. Dagda is very selfish and it shows in how he wants to control everything. Thanks to people around her Katel is kept safe. Read Dagda’s Daughter to find out what happens!
If you like god and goddess stories mixed with adventure, this one is for you! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I haven’t read the first one so it was a slow build at first but it’s pretty easy to figure out without reading the first. The characters were wonderful, the plot was good and the story is enthralling. I can’t wait to read the next in the series!
I give Dagda’s Daughter: Raven and Hummingbird Book 2 by Nikki Broadwell, 4 stars.
I really enjoy paranormal books about gods and goddesses and I was looking forward to what this book had to offer. It was so, so good. Katel is a wonderful main character. She has forgotten who and what she is, yet she still persists. There are other characters in here who are just as good. There is so much depth to all of the characters. I was thrown right into these worlds and was right there beside each character, rooting either for or against them. Some seem bad, but are really just misunderstood. While there is definitely a story and different worlds, this book is really all about the characters in the book and the author does a great job of focusing on them and pulling into their worlds.
If you are a fan or fiction about gods and goddesses, this book is definitely for you.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Dagda’s Daughter is extremely well written you are drawn into Kat’s world. This is a mystery, supernatural and romance story where each character has a well written backgrounds and you divulge into this thier world. How has Kat and Daga relationship changed due to his behaviour.
Daga has done something unspeakable for the love of his life. With Kate coming into her powers can he keep them and her undercontrol.
This book was a good one and i enjoyed it. It was a fantasy filled with action and danger. It was intriguing and it kept my attention and i read the book in one setting. The characters were interesting and i was looking forward to seeing where their stories were headed. I am looking forward to reading more by this author and i would recommend this one to anyone that likes a good fantasy book.
