Dark Waters by Shannon Mayer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a fun read with an original twist on the mythology aspect of it. The focus here was on Irish myths instead of more commonly seen Greek/Roman Gods. The family aspect of this read was also a bit unusual. We are introduced to two sisters that are very close. Quinn is the older sister that has practically raised her younger sister Ashling. Their mother has had little to do with them and their grandfather is in a mental institution, and even he has his favorite of the two.
As the story unfolds, Quinn quickly learns that her life is not what she has always believed it to be. The loss of her sister to the monsters that she never knew existed has opened her eyes and caused her to fight for those she loves. My biggest problem was understanding the family dynamics portrayed in this story. Its never really explained why their mother doesn't want them, or why their grandfather behaves the way he does towards them.
Overall, I enjoyed this read although it left me with a lot of questions. And some things were rather predictable, the ever present love triangle was no surprise. But I am intrigued as to where this story is going and I plan on reading the next book in this series.
