Blood of the Fae by Tom Mohan is a supernatural story. Liza McCarthy was an illegitimate child, her parents' marriage broken beyond repair. She doesn’t know who her father is and she has no idea of her heritage. Until she gets a call one night, telling her to get out of the house. Minutes later her house is broken into and she barely escapes. The mysterious caller rings her again and Liza finds herself traveling to Halden’s Mill, a tiny town in the middle of nowhere. A mysterious family called the Finns take her in, telling her they guard the entrance to the land of the Faeries. Slowly, Liza is drawn into a world she never dreamed existed, with strange people in town, monsters, and dark magic. She has to find her destiny and stop two worlds from colliding and destroying the human race forever but first, she must come to terms with who she is.
I found Blood of the Fae by Tom Mohan a bit hard going to start with but the story soon pulled me in. A mixture of horror, the supernatural, and fantasy, Blood of the Fae starts off by giving us the main protagonist's background – useful for later in the story. This is not the type of story where you can read half-heartedly – it requires your full concentration. There is much going on, a lot of action and world-building but every word is critical to the end of the story. It is an engaging story and the characters are well-developed. Written in the third-person, it does tend to dive about a little so you need your wits about you. Get fully involved in the story and you won’t want to put it down.
