In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another incredible urban fantasy plus Celtic mythology and legend, set in contemporary Chicago, “In the Forests of the Night” is every bit as absorbing as its predecessor in the series, “Tyger, Tyger.” Young Teagan, still reeling from the loss of her mother, the near-loss of her father, and his inability to recover the memories of her mother’s death that had been wiped from his mind during his involuntary stay in Mag Mell (the alter-dimension of goblins, fae, sidhe, and others), must cope with the magnetism of Finn Mac Cumhaill-are they in love, or is it lust, or just the survival instinct common in times of danger), and with the Highborn’s insistence on acquiring her “exceptional” younger brother Aiden, whose singing, quite literally, is magic. Adding to this are the Sidhe Roisin and Thomas, brought back from Mag Mell; Mamieo, Finn’s ailing but very feisty Irish grandma; the cat-sidhe Grendel; the sprite Lucy, who loves Aiden’s hair; and of course, Teagan’s long-time best friend, Abby, whose relatives make up their own Mob.
This series is excellent and deserves space on the Keeper Shelf. I highly recommend it!
