The tale of Aislinn and her journey of self-discovery continues in Druid, book two of Kenney’s highly addictive Secrets of the Fae series. While Aislinn believes she is content in her “normal” teenage romance with Zane, her mind and heart always seem to wander back to the Far Darrig. These two could not be more different from each other, again she’s torn between two worlds, but things become clear for Aislinn as she begins to learn who she truly is. This darker second volume brings with it a whole new faction of magic wielding druids into the mix along with a cryptic prophecy that will inevitably change the world no matter the final outcome.
Well, I enjoyed the first book so much, I dove right into book two because I wasn’t ready to end my adventure with Aislinn…and let’s be honest here, the Red One. Kenney has taken everything I loved from Korrigan and made it even better. Relationships deepen and are more relatable, the cast widens with the introduction of a variety of interesting fae, mysteries and secrets of the world are unveiled and brought to light, the scope broadens and it’s beautiful. More lore, more action, more tension. Our heroine’s progression and development are breathtaking throughout and without giving away any spoilers…she is a badass – stronger than she could have ever imagined.
All I can say is I really enjoyed this one. The story is reaching a boiling point and I can’t wait to see how everything concludes. It’s been impossible for me to put this series down…onto the next.
