I loved The Stone Awakened! I’d been waiting for Book 2 in Judith Sterling’s YA fantasy “Guardians of Erin” series, after the fantastic first book The Cauldron Stirred, and I was not disappointed. The Donoghue family’s adventures continue in this excellent continuation of their story.
In this book, the Donoghue children, aided by figures from Celtic mythology, search for their missing parents. I love how Sterling combines modern real-world characters with Irish myth and folklore.
I don’t want to say too much about the story, as I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I especially enjoyed Ashling’s romantic situation in this book, torn between Aengus and Lorcan, in a love-story that crosses lifetimes.
The Stone Awakened is a page-turning adventure with magic and wonder, suspense, and romance. No pressure on the author, but I’m already anticipating book 3 in the series and can’t wait to read it!
