She has power over fire, the ability to move objects with her mind, and glimpse into the future. Just when she believes her life can’t get any stranger, she discovers her true identity.

Lisa's review of
Morrigan
By Laura DeLuca

I received a ARC copy of Morrigan by Laura DeLuca in exchange for an honest review. Laura is the author of Destiny, Destiny Unveiled, Phantom, and short story Jessica. Through these books I have gotten the pleasure of going on a fantastic literary journey that I hope never to end. With Morrigan she did not disappoint this reader. In my opinion this was her BEST book to date. I loved how she carefully built up each character fully describing them so you are

This story was fantastic! It had everything you come to expect in a YA novel with a few extra surprises thrown in to keep you enthralled.

Morrigan knows little about who she is and even less about where she came from. Being an orphan who has been bounced around from foster home to foster home definitely doesn't help her situation. The one thing she knows for sure is that she is different from those around her and she is powerful.

In the story, Morrigan discovers she is a witch princess of a diffe

I've never read fantasy before. Never had any interest, so it was with much trepidation I began to read this...and I was immediately sucked into another land, deeply engrossed and involved in this tale.


It starts in the modern world. You have a teenage girl in school, seeing a strange man outside her classroom window... she has these two cats...she's been going foster home to foster home and is about to get a shock discovery about who her parents were.

One of them was a witch...but the evil witch

If you like stories of witches, werewolves and enchanted lands then this is the book for you! I am not one that usually reads these type of novels but I enjoyed this one.

The author did a wonderful job of bringing the reader into the story and getting them lost in this enchanted tale.

Morrigan is a young girl who is trying to find her place in a world where she doesn't belong. She has always felt that something was different about her but she was not sure exactly why she felt like she didn't bel

I think it's the little kid in me that never grew up, but I love stories like this. First thoughts of Tiarn, I love him and that boy can have me follow him anywhere, "I'll find you." He took a long, deep breath through his flaring nostrils. "I could pick up your scent anywhere." I also love his playfulness in serious situations, "Two against one," he muttered. "Well boys those odds hardly seem fair. Why not wait until a few more of your comrades arrive. So you have at least a sporting chance at ...more

(Portion of review from my blog, The Reader's Commute)

Morrigan is an intriguing character from the opening pages. She certainly realizes her differences; she even harnesses some of her powers right in front of the students in her high school. Why then, was it difficult for me to accept that she accepted her new reality so easily? Within the first few chapters, Morrigan learns that she is the heir to the throne of Tír Na NÓg, a magical land. Does she accept this so readily because of her powers?

The thing I like most about reading fantasy is that, for those few hours, I really feel gripped by another world. Like I've been dumped into an outrageous, yet fascinating land and get to explore without limitations. I first glimpsed Morrigan last fall, and I knew I wanted to read it immediately. I adore the girl on this cover, she's soft, yet fierce all at the same time. I love fantasy and magic, and of course a heroine's quest to find wher

Werewolves, witches, faeries, betrayals, romance, and an ending that had me anxious for more. Morrigan had it all and it was absolutely wonderful!

As in her other books, Laura DeLuca had flawless world building in this book. She created an amazing world of magic, along with deep characters. This is why she's one of my favorite authors. Her books, with their fantastic worlds and dynamic characters, are brilliant. And this book definitely lived up to that.

Morrigan by Laura Deluca
This is the second book that I read by author Laura Deluca. I read Jessica previously and was enthralled by it. I was enchanted by Morrigan. I love the characters of Morrigan and Filtiarn. The world she weaves and the journey you are one simply delightful in ever sense. You can fully picture ever scene the characters are in. I love how she described the characters especially Filtiarn.

I am ashamed to say that on my first attempt at reading 'Morrigan' I turned my Kindle off after the first two chapters. I felt that they were disjointed and I did not connect with the story or with Morrigan, who appeared selfish and rude. However, with my review due I tried again the next day and finished the book quickly!

First let me start by saying I LOVE Goddess stories! Now that being said, this isn't your typical Goddess story. No what we have is even better! As a practicing Wiccan, I can tell you this story fell into my lap at the perfect time. Morrigan is a perfect tale of witchcraft, family, light and dark!

Morrigan was born, and abandoned, she is now a young lady and in foster care. She is a witch and has some pretty fabulous powers, telekinesis and fire being the two major ones. She also has an amazing t

Morrigan is a orphan (she thinks) and very unhappy, swapped between foster homes with most times not to nice foster parents. She is bullied in school, she knows she is special and not like others, because she does have special powers that she learned mostly to control. At her 17th year, she is hearing someone calling her name, one morning when she showered it is stronger then ever and a woman appears in the fog of her mirror. it appears to be her birth mothers who begs her to help and says she ...more

I’ve read books in most genres. Fantasy, sci-fi, historical, romance, textbooks…you name it. I must admit that before reading Laura DeLuca’s Morrigan I hadn’t read a YA book in decades, if ever. And I’m glad I did!

DeLuca weaves the teen angst and yearning for adulthood that we’ve all felt into the tale of Morrigan’s search for her identity and roots. For Morrigan the experience is different than it was for me, but that’s to be expected as I was never a teenaged girl! Early on, Morrigan tells the

Morrigan, has never felt as if she belonged….anywhere. It was almost as if she belonged in another world….What comforts her is an inside belief she is destined for more, and also the reocurring dreams about a boy, that is literally the boy of her dreams! This disturbs and thrills her at the same time.. Morrigan, drifts through each day; staying under the radar, but if she does have her limits pushed, then there are major consquences. Soon her world turns updside down, and Morrigan discover

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book that I have read by Laura DeLuca and I really enjoyed it. It was really cool because it was about the Goddess' and witchcraft. I loved the world of Tir na Nog that Laura DeLuca created. I loved how it had a renaissance feel but was also mixed with fantasy and paranormal elements. It included all of my favourite creatures; werewolves, fairies, witches and lots more.

If you're a fan of YA and fantasy, this is a book for you. I'm not usually a huge fan of fantasy, but I really enjoyed this book. Would be perfect for fans of books like The Mortal Instruments and The Immortals.
The story follows Morrigan. She was orphaned basically at birth and has spent the past 17 years jumping from foster home to foster home. We find out that she has all sorts of special powers and can manipulate the elements, mainly fire. She has two trusty sidekicks in the form of two cats.

Morrigan had been in a lot of homes, she was used to people calling her odd or different because she was just that. She didn’t expect people to like her, so she was never disappointed when things didn’t work out. She didn’t have much, but she had her two cats, her sketchpad, and she had her powers. And….she was about to find out she had a completely other life to be lived.

This was an amazing book. It is filled with Celtic lore with its own unique twist. There are witches, werewolves, and faeries as well as some original mythical creatures like Guardians and Gatekeepers. Morrigan's journey is wrought with danger at every turn making it an epic fantasy that even LOTR fans will appreciate. It features mega strong female characters that are a great example for teen girls, yet the story will appeal to people of all ages. The climax was the most amazing part of all. It ...more

Morrigan by Laura DeLuca is an enchanting, fun, and emotional book. I loved it and will gladly go looking for more of the author’s books! It’s a truly original take on witches, werewolves, fairytales, and young love. Though it sounds like it would be paranormal, it’s actually much more of a fantasy that any fairytale fan would enjoy. There were only a couple minor flaws. I felt that the pacing kind of dragged in a few scenes but it's mostly due to repetitive descriptions. My eyes kind of glazed ...more

I was instantly drawn into this story by Morrigan. You can't help but want her to be successful. She is a caring and powerful witch trying to get by in a world that neither understands her or accepts her. Her courage is clear from the beginning.

The story takes several turns that keep the reader wanting to know what happens next. At first it seems as though the ending is predictable but don't be so sure with this book. I was surprised even up to the last page. Wonderful story and I look forward t

Again Laura DeLuca has knocked the ball out of the park with a story of intrigue,suspense and a lesson to learn. A magical tale of love and trust lost through prejudice and greed. Morrigan and Filtiarn are not unlike many young people of mixed heritage. Morrigan from birth learned the ugly reality of being different and Tiarn also lived with the prejudice that also existed in the magical world. Laura made the adversities they faced factually real while keeping the magical fiction compelling and ...more
