Their love was meant to be.

When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she’s surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs.

But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction -Goodreads

The only reason this is getting two stars is because I cannot give it a half star. And to be honest, it’s barely 1.5 stars. First off, this is a book I should like. There is a pretty cover and the blurb sounds like me. To be honest, sometimes that is all I ask for. But there is so much wrong with this book that the pretty cover cannot save it. Plus this is going to be a series, and you know I have problems with YA series.

Where to start with this book. First of all, it is Twilight, take out vampires, insert magic, and set it in Ireland. Twilight was bad enough itself, but to read pretty much the same book set in another country? No thanks. Second, my friend tried to read it and couldn’t get through it, that alone should have been a sign I would have issues with it. Plus, Fallon’s writing isn’t amazing. I believe if the writing would have been better the book could have been better. Megan is new to the small town and makes a BFF no questions asked, when she blows her off the BFF, she is forgiven right away. Not even a little grudge! It just got to the point in this novel that I stopped caring about the people, the place, the drama, the MOMENT. I almost got to the skimming point in this novel, which is never a good sign.

I really can’t recommend this book to any certain type of reader because it was just..blah. And the fact that it is going to be a series could excite me even less.
