The Wolves Of Dullahan by Candace L. Bowser & the irishman

4 STARS



Leigh O'Bannon comes from a long, distinguished, line of Irish who settled in Dullahan Hollow. The opportunity of a lifetime is offered to her after graduation to become the Lead Archeologist at a newly discovered Native American burial ground. Leigh quickly discovers all is not as it seems once she and her team reaches the site. Realizing she needs the expertise of another, Leigh enlists the aid of a renowned authority on Native American Tribes and Culture, Jon Two Feathers. The longer Leigh is at the site, the more she begins to realize that she is somehow strangely tied to the woman whose remains lie in the grave and the wolf who was buried with her. As the dig continues, Leigh begins to understand her place within the Hollow. The wolves who once inhabited the Hollow are returning and only Leigh with the aid of her friends and the creatures who once protected the Hollow can save them from destruction.

I'm the first to admit that I have no idea how to explain this story.  The blurb above pretty much explains it but it doe not mention that a few chapters in your brought to the past.  In the past you learn the history of how things in the Hallow came to be and why it is so important the Leigh save it.

  The authors imagination is unbelievable; every emotion is brought to life through the characters. 
The scenes are so well thought out it's like being in a different time and place and the descriptions are truly amazing.

I feel like I can't even do this book justice with my review because this book is.....
See, the words fail me lol

The best I can come up with is riveting, mind boggling and imaginative.  Please do read this book!  You will not regret it!
