Synopsis

Liam never knew who his father was. The town of Derry had always assumed that he was the bastard of a protestant — his mother never spoke of him, and Liam assumed he was dead. But when the war between the fallen and the fey began to heat up, Liam and his family are pulled into a conflict that they didn’t know existed. A centuries old conflict between supernatural forces seems to mirror the political divisions in 1970’s era Ireland, and Liam is thrown headlong into both conflicts! Only the direct intervention of Liam’s real father, and a secret catholic order dedicated to fighting “The Fallen” can save Liam... from the mundane and supernatural forces around him, and from the darkness that lurks within him.

On the cover of the book, right beneath the title, it reads “A Book of the Fey and the Fallen,” and the back explains how Liam is drawn into a battle between these factions, so you’d think this was what the story was about.

Examiner

Among all the hardships and bloodshed Liam faces, these relationships provide much of the "honey" in the story, giving him a base of love and wisdom and glimmers of hope that he just might survive.

SF Signal

It’s an odd pairing, since Liam was never good with book learning–his wild nature makes it a bit hard for him to focus–but they make a tumultuous and passionate couple.

Portland Book Review

Liam’s life changes even more when he discovers that his father is one of the Fey, a Puck, and that he himself is half-Fey and being watched not only by the Catholic Church who hunts down the Fey believing them to be demons, but also an actual fallen angel intent on destroying Liam and his family.

In other ways, however, he is unbelievable as a priest — most unconvincingly, when Mary Kate suddenly gets “sick” three months into the marriage and the priest takes her to a special “clinic” for treatment.
