The Vengeance of the Morrigan by Amanda Maynard Schubert follows a woman called Neala Moran who is a Bard - a half-human, half Faerie - and she has elemental powers. Along with the other guardians, she is trying her best to protect the Otherworld, but they are shunned there and only have each other. At least until they are driven apart. Suspicious and dealing with their own problems, they separate, leaving them vulnerable. The Morrigan is coming and if she catches them, they will not survive. Neala needs to dig down deep and see if she has the power inside her to stop the Morrigan before she gets her first. Does she have it in her?

Amanda Maynard Schubert has written an interesting tale with The Vengeance of the Morrigan. While I have not read the first book, I was able to follow what was happening in this book. Neala is an intriguing character. Though the story follows multiple characters, it does seem to be her story at its heart. The opening grabbed me with the first appearance of the Morrigan and her strange offer to the dying Padraig. It kept me reading to find out where the story would go. I love Irish myths, probably because I'm from there, but the Morrigan is always an interesting character to read about. I think this book would be enjoyed by epic fantasy fans. While listed as young adult, it can be enjoyed by adult readers too. I would recommend it.
