Review


The Stone of Destiny was an easy and adventurous book that you will want to read over and over again!


The story takes place right after The Forgotten Ones, and deals with Allison and her fight against evil fairy princess, Aoife.


Allison's stepped up since the first book, and more willing to put herself in more danger to save the ones that she loves. She's still the awkward book worm with an "unreasonable" ice cream addiction, but learns how to hold her own when navigating her way though fairy world and saving everyone from Aoife.


This book deals a lot about relationships, which I actually enjoyed since they brought a new dimension to Allison's character. They all had their specific roles and help her become the person she is at the end of the book. In my opinion, I felt like the familial drama overweighed the fight against Aoife, but regardless the book was full of adventure.

I liked the involvement of Niamh and Liam, but I felt like there could've been more of a build up with the introduction of Sam in book 1 and 2. I like how we got to meet her soon, but I felt like there could've been more suspense with her introduction that would've made us want to meet her. 

Overall, the book was good! Hopefully book 3 comes out soon!
