“He makes my tummy itchy.”
Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
Length: 246 Pages
POV: First Person
Surviving the transition from human to supernatural life is looking like a walk in the park compared to what happens when your Faerie Grandmother finally catches up to you.
Wild magic and displays of raw power have brought the Tuatha de Dannan to Lara Hennessey’s door. They want to explore the extent of her power and aren’t taking no for an answer. So she runs to the only place she has ever felt safe; Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. Only safe is relative. With an angry neighbor, a maybe best friend, a rogue vampire, and your Faerie Grandmother hunting you, peace on the island is fleeting. Throw in the fact that you are the only thing standing in the way of death for a set of twin boys and the stakes get higher. When the dust settles she is left with one truth….families are complicated.
*I received this book free from the author.*
The beginning of this book starts with a little taste of Lara’s newfound healing powers. Nothing like starting with a slightly startling moment to draw you in.
And draw me in it did.
I have to say that nothing major happens, with the exception of Daniel. Otherwise it’s filled with small victories. Whether it’s Lara deciding her own future, or her standing up to someone for something that is right, or finally realizing that family isn’t always blood and that the family who is might just be a little terrifying.
“I can hear your heartbeat, I can smell your feelings.”
I found that Healer is about Lara discovering a little more about herself and about the world around her. There’s still plenty she doesn’t know and at times I felt just as lost as she did with what was going on around her. I’m sure her and I both will soon understand as the series continues. Until then, I’m left wondering what else out there may be seeking her powers. And what exactly is going on between her and Aedan.
“I thought I had lost you. It…frightened me. I am quite unaccustomed to being frightened.”
Even after learning a little more about the mysterious Aedan I still don’t know what to make of him. I want to be all Team Aedan, and yet there’s still something I’m not quite sure about. I keep waiting for him to either betray her or rock her world…not sure which I want to see more though.
