Review|| Korrigan- Rebecca Kenney (Secrets of the Fae book 1)

Synopsis: A girl at night, a caged monster during the day. Aislinn has lived in darkness as long as she can remember. She is Korrigan— and only by Life-Stealing can she keep her human shape from dawn to dusk. When she finally steps into the sunlight, the first person she sees is Zane. He’s everything she wants— handsome, sweet, and normal.
But an encounter with the Far Darrig, the malevolent trickster of Old Irish myth, changes Aislinn’s future. He opens a new realm of possibilities that are anything but normal— and with them, brings dreams and desires as dangerous as he is.
Above all, Aislinn craves choice— the right to decide her own path. But what if gaining power for herself means giving up something much more precious?

Ratings: 3.5/5


Review:  Korrigan is Book one in an Irish inspired fantasy with Fae, Druids, Leprechauns, the Queen and the trickster Far Darigg. Korrigan are part demon and our protagonist, Aislinn, is one.

I really loved the story. It was unique and my love for fantasy was fulfilled really well. The story developed throughout the book which kept up the suspense and keeps one hooked to the story.

It is an interesting mix of Irish folklore and mythology with supernatural elements and magic. Aislinn is a great character and she grows so much during the story. Zane is her human boyfriend who is a sweet guy with a great heart. The villain in this book is the Far Darigg who was also my favourite character. His characterisation is written really well and he is a very intricate character.

There were many different types of characters which is something I really liked.

I found that the book was a little slow in the start and picks up pace after the first few chapters. The writing was a little choppy at times. Aislinn wasn’t my favourite because she acted a little too childish as times and I just didn’t feel connected to her. But the good story kept me going.

Overall, I really liked this book. So if you’re a fan of a interesting storylines, an amazing villain, a female protagonist and an amazing premise , Korrigan by Rebecca Kenney is perfect for you.
