Meghan Elam has been strange her entire life: her eyes have this odd habit of changing color and she sees and hears things no one else does. When the visions and voices in her head start to get worse, she is convinced that her parents will want to drag her off to another psychiatrist. That is, until the mysterious Cade MacRoich shows up out of nowhere with an explanation of his own.

Cade brings her news of another realm where goblins and gnomes are the norm, a place where whispering spirits exist in the very earth, and a world where Meghan just might find the answers she has always sought.
“I never heard him come after me and even as I climbed the slope and stumbled onto our shaded back lawn, I didn’t look back. It was like the day the gnomes chased me all over again, but this time I was not escaping some horrible little creatures, I was fleeing from an incredibly good-looking guy who could very well understand me completely. I was either saving myself from that serial killer I always imagined lived down in the swamp, or I had finally gone over the deep end . . .”

Thank you to the Author, Jenna Johnson and the ARR program on GoodReads for the opportunity to read and review this book. 

I really liked this book! Jenna Johnson brings the Celtic world in a very easy way to understand if you’re not familiar with it and with a very intriguing and captivating story.

The beginning is a little slow, but I enjoyed the fact that Meghan is not running from this unexplainable things that happen to her because they’re unknown, she’s running from them because she knows them and wants to keep herself sane. She’s seen these weird creatures and heard the trees cry all her life, and she needs to remember it’s only a figment of her imagination. 

Dunring the first half of the book we see her struggling against herself, trying to fit in, to be accepted.
I loved how she stays strong though all that, putting others before herself to make sure they’re ok even though she’s hurting and scare about everything that happens to her.

Meghan is a lovely character: she has a little group of friends she loves and protects whenever she can; she has a very big and tight family that mean the world to her and over all she’s brave. Meghan doesn’t want to go back to the psychiatrist so she hides her visions of horrible monster from everyone.

Cade’s sudden arrival puts her world upside down, even more than what it is. He tells her that she might not be a weird 17-year-old human girl. He gives an explanation for everything that’s happen to her ever since she was a child, but with this revelation comes the danger of knowing that those creatures are real and dangerous.
Cade… he’s mysterious, he’s sexy, he’s an awesome fighter and he’s caring. All you’d want in a boy.  He never gives a straight answer.

Faelorehn is a great book to start off a series: It gives you an introduction to all the characters and who they are in the right time without ruining the fun. The book sets the ground for what will comes next, and what comes next seems to be quite big!

 I’d love it if Jenna had included more background stories for Meghan and Cade or Meghan’s family and friends but I see how they’ll probably be more important in future books.
Cade comes and goes in the book making you desperate to know what’s happening, is he good? Is he bad? Can she trust him? Is all of it real?

Without putting any spoilers here, I can assure the end is going to leave you hanging and begging for more. I can’t wait to see how Meghan’s story will continue.
