Allison wants to take on some of the her grandparents burden and help them take care of her schizophrenic mother, who has been like that since she returned from Ireland pregnant with Allison. This means she has always avoided relationships, even with Ethan, a friend of her cousins and the guy she has been crazy for since they were young. Allison’s life is turn upside down when her father, Liam, turns up saying he can help heal her mum. But when her mother goes missing, Allison is told about the Tuatha de Danaan, fairies, which Liam has been living with for centuries and now one of them has kidnaped her mum. Allison goes to another world, Tir Na Nog to save her mother and hopefully learn more about herself.
The Forgotten Ones is a good paranormal NA read with a very fast pace but a more YA feel about it. While I like this book as it is full of Irish folklore and the plot is interesting, I felt it had potential but was a bit let down as it didn’t reach it and was a bit confusing.
Allison is a normal hard working woman who I really liked and related to, but I felt she accepted the supernatural way too easily and quickly. I didn’t really feel much for Ethan as he was a player, and that would have been fine if he stopped so that he could try and win over Allison, but he didn’t really.
I am looking forward to the next book Stone of Destiny and seeing what happens next to Allison. I would recommend The Forgotten Ones to fans of Ever Shade by Alexia Purdy and Faelorehn by Jenna Elizabeth Johnson.
