Where to start, where to start. I'm as giddy as a school girl about this series, and that's not me. I'm not a book club fanatic, I like my quiet time to sit and read and maybe go to sleep.

This book for me was like finding my one true love, in book form, from the first few chapters in on the very first read. I knew this was the one. I saw the world, I felt the characters in a way that literally transported me, and I started wondering about my own reality on how well placed S. Archer and Ravynhear

In Whom You Trust: This prequel explains the curse of the Touch by the Sidhe, and gives a closer look at Lugh – the good and the bad. We get to see the All-Mother, Danu, and who Aiofe is and the theory behind why she is gone.

End of the World: Lugh stands his guard as Champion when Jhaer attacks. Something goes wrong…and the All-Mother is in danger.

Aftershock: This starts where End of the World starts, but through the eyes of Jhaer, why he attacks and his thoughts of the fall of the Mounds happen

Holy crumb. This is my second time reading through this series (I read the serialized installments as they came out originally) and SO MUCH HAPPENS here. SO MUCH! Heartache, death, pain, torture, mourning... Okay, all that makes it sound like it's all angst and betrayal but it's GRIPPING angst and betrayal. You get to see a people on the verge of being destroyed by something they have no control over as the reality of Danu's death forces them to wither and fade away. The unscrupulousness of less ...more

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed the characters that were apart of the book. There are many and the book changes back and forth as you see the complete story unfolding and where everyone fits into the whole scheme. Excitement, lost love, learning who they are and the kind of magic they have. All in all well written and fun as well. Cant wait to check out the next book of the series especially after the way this book ends.

Best series I've ever read. Recommend it to anyone who loves urban fantasy with something new. Can't get enough of this world. Can't say more. Just read a page or two. I dare you.
Start from the beginning if you can. It works either way.

A Great Urban Fantasy

This book has interesting characters that as the series progress (I've read all the subsequent books) show character development. My favorite characters in this series is Malcolm, Donovan, and Lugh. The characters all have their own faults and virtues. I especially like the interactions between these three characters. In the books they consider each other as enemies but, in the end, they find that their goals are the same. Another character that I wish we could have had bett

3.5 stars
This book is my first from these authors and it will surely not be the last.
The story develops super fast, the world building is typical UF without being cliché. The characters are cool and nicely depicted, some of them are more "traditional", but others are brand new, which is not an easy thing to do (create a new character) is stream of literature as packed of good books as UF.
I found cool that the authors match the storytelling with the different behaviors of the characters, so the

This story met all my expectatons for a series on Faeries.
It has intrigue, plus a bit of romance and lots of action.
I got captivated right from the start and I can't wait to
read what happens next.
The way the authors describe the Fae world in Ireland and
England was so believable, plus the characters were very interesting.
When you are introduced to Lugh - Seelie Court and Donovan - Unseelie Court, you
can see that even though they are enemies they have the best interests of the

Scattered Magic is collection 1 of the The Sidhe series by S.A. Archer.

This is the first book from this author that I've read. I enjoyed reading it. The characters were interesting and well thought out. The story was fresh and well written. I liked the diversity of the characters. It has fey, vampires, changelings, wizards and more. The setting is set in Ireland. It's vividly described mixed with a wonderfully, exciting, magically built world of the fey. I enjoyed reading this book and look forw

So I will say I was not a huge fan of the multi point of view style that this book followed. I found it slightly difficult to follow the time line at some points and at other times I just found myself skimming for the difference in views when it replayed a scene. At the same time I did find myself drawn into the story line and looking forward to the next part of the collection.

I received this book from a Goodreads Giveaway for my honest review.

I really wanted to like this book. It had the potential to be great, but it just didn't work for me. There were way too many points of view. Everytime I got interested in the story, the author would switch points of view and leave me wanting.

Great Story!!

When I began reading this story, it seemed to jump all over the place and it was difficult to separate the characters, but within a half dozen chapters, it leveled out and started coming together, I am looking forward to reading more in this series!!!

Love the story but hate the short overlapping and out-of-sequences chapters. I still give it 4 stars despite the annoyance.

This might be a good book to some but I just found myself several chapters in still feeling confused as to what was happening and not really feeling interested enough to figure it out.
