The Fergus is an engaging story. I'm not sure what I was expecting honestly. I never really got into the Twilight series like a lot of my friends, so I sort of thought this would be a nice read, but not something that would blow me away. Was I ever wrong! I was drawn in from the first place, and being a big fan of all things fae, I was practically screaming at Rory to be careful as he followed the call of the banshee. Highly recommend, for adults young and old. ...more

The connection to dreams and pondering the the possibilities of afterlife captivated me. Rork travels "mystically" and then uses his computer and technology skills to make connections with loved ones in the "other world". It read like like a cross between "A Wrinkle in Time" and Harry Potter as the plot revea ...more
