To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
STORY BRIEF: Ballyfionuir, Ireland (on the Isle of Fenmore) has many people who inherit psychic and magical abilities from their ancestors. Fia had five-year-old twins Danni and Rory. A murder occurred in a cave, and the locals believe Fia and her children were also killed, but they weren't. Fia survived and took Danni to America. She left Danni in an orphanage in Arizona. Danni was raised by foster parents. It is now 20 years later. A man named Sean appears at Danni's home. He tells her she has a father in Ireland who wants to see her. He asks her to return to Ireland with him for a visit. Danni begins having psychic visions and dreams.
REVIEWER'S OPINION: The story is a mystery with several questions. Instead of someone investigating and talking to people to solve the mysteries, Danni has a series of visions which answer some questions and cause her to take some actions. Each vision is a partial answer and is vague. When she asks questions of others, their answers are usually "I don't know," even though they also have psychic abilities. This method of having visions with partial answers until the very end didn't work for me. It didn't allow me to enjoy a character's personality, thinking and choices. It was too passive - waiting for more visions for more answers. The plot, the characters, the motivations, and the evil were all interesting. However, I would have preferred the story be told chronologically - not done retroactively using vague and incomplete visions drawing it out.
I liked the ending. I liked how magic was used to solve some problems at the end. Those were neat ideas.
