    This may be the series that cures my book hangover! I still really enjoyed this story line! I love it when a girl can step up to the plate and deliver, that she does some of the rescuing and doesn?t just wait for someone to rescue her! Plus it was the end of the ?beauty and the bea...

    My heart!! My heart was all over the place in this book. Eamann and sorcha were separated after the last book. My heart was discontented for sorcha. She discovers who she is and my heart feels hope. She finds her way back to faerie and my heart feels home. She walks into a ready ma...

    Ka?d rozprvka sa raz mus skon?i?, no Sorcha s Eamonnom pred sebou mali ve?mi dlh cestu. V prvej knihe srie sa v?etko e?te len rozbehlo a viac ako ?omuko?vek inmu Emma Hamm venovala pozornos? vykresleniu svojho sveta. Teraz u? len tento svet musela rozpohybova? ko...

    I think 3 stars is a bit generous but I very much like Ms. Hamm's writing style and it's clear she is very talented. This book desperately needed editing. Some major inconsistencies with the characters and the plot are this book's undoing. Moreover, the second half of the book was comp...

    I love fairytale retellings!I've almost read all of the ones available so when I came across a new Beauty and the Beast retelling in Heart Of The Fae, I knew I had to have it, especially since it was written by Emma Hamm!I've loved her writing from the time I read The Goblin Bride two ...

    This has been a very painful read. The book is full of inconsistencies (view spoiler)[ like the dwarf king not trusting Eamonn for some dumb reason and yet giving him that overpowered sword, and then saying he will fully support Sorcha, or when trying (and in my opinion failing) to mak...

    The first book was great, however this book was epic. It continued right where it left off in Heart of the Fae and from the first page and right to the end it brought you into a bigger adventure. More mythology, more Sorcha and Eamonn, more to learn, and more to enjoy. Sorcha's growth ...

    ^^ Vrele doporucuji vsem, co miluji Fae a pribeh o krasce a zvireti. Ackoliv tady to autorka vzala na uplne jinou uroven. Navic, kdo by nemiloval knihy, ktere pretaci takovou tu klasiku ala "ja jsem silny chlap a ted te zachranim" :D. Rozhodne se na to neda divat jen jako na obycej...

    What an end. I was on tears and I loved it. This sequel was way better than the first book. I got everything that I wanted, I got to see how Eammon and Sorcha's relationsip grew and became stronger. Even when I thought I knew how they would act I was surprise. (view spoiler)[I thoug...

    Nooo... what happened? The first book was just amazing and this one seems to have been written by a different person. I?m going to be honest... I?ve got to the 80% and I was still pretty much in love with the story and then...everything went to hell. 1) No one... and I mean NO ...

    The Fairytale continues Once again, I'm pleasantly remind of Grace Draven's novels and I'm glad to have another author added to ones I appreciate. Emma Hamm gracefully nods at fairytale themes and folklore while making it her own unique storyline and world. It honestly almost had a...

    Die Fortsetzung setzt nahtlos fort. Sorcha ist endlich zurck bei ihrer Familie und findet ein Heilmittel, um ihrer Familie zu helfen. Eamonn auf der anderen Seite stellt eine Armee gegen den Kampf mit einem Zwilling auf. Die Geschichte enthlt weniger Romantik als im ersten Band,...

    4.5 Stars! Review for Book 1 & 2 This was super enchanting and an absolute delight to read. This takes traditional fae lore and mixes it with a Beauty and the Beast retelling. Emma Hamm's writing is just next level. Even though fae and retellings have been done time and t...

    Thank goodness we didn't have to wait long for Veins of Magic, because I know when I read Heart of the Fae I couldn't wait to see what happened next! This book flies by and I know I couldn't get enough of every part of the story. From Sorcha's challenges with curing the blood beetl...

    The sequel was more engaging and better told in some ways than the first book. I dived in and didn't want to come up for air as the story moved along at a natural pace instead of the urgent-slow-urgent pattern of the first. So why only fours? Without giving away too much all I can say ...

    In Veins of Magic, we see the growth and maturity of the Sorcha and Eamonn as they carry on with their journeys separately. It was like another version of the Lord of the Rings. They split up, go to new places, meet new people, through their encounters they grow, but never forgetting t...

    Ahhhhh it's over and I need more!!!!! Oh man I am at an utter loss for words. This book was beyond amazing!!! I absolutely fell in love with book one but this one has My heart soaring, then shattering and then piecing itself back together in the most perfect way. Book one ended w...

    This book more than the first one reminded me of Eidolon with its rich fantasy world building, fantasy romance, and battle preparation scenes...which is probably why I rated them both three stars, haha. Not quite my cup of teas. It's still the conclusion to Eamonn's and Sorcha's...

    *There will be spoilers* *Especially if you haven't read Heart of the Fae* What can I say. This book wildly exceeded my expectations. Not only did it expand on Heart of the Fae by showing us more of the Otherworld and SO MUCH character development but it was also a heartwarming remi...

    Great finish to this story! Loved it very much. Sorcha and everything she went through, wow I couldn't evwn imagine. Eamonn and his choices he made for his people. I cried in this one, many times but I loved how it played out. Cannot wait to read what else this author brings out. ...

    This sequel to Heart of the Fae captured my heart! Both HotF and this sequel are retellings of Beauty and the Beast, but I think it's important to note. Not this. This. And not this. This. (okay, but with a lot more crystals) The seamless melding of fa...

    This was the perfect ending to Sorcha and Eammon's story! These books really kept me glued to the pages, the story was so well written I couldn't just stop reading! I won't hide the fact that I was afraid for Eammon but thank god we have an happy ending! I'm hoping to see more about ...

    Such a wonderful sequel to Heart of the Fae! Emma Hamm does such a wonderful job of describing the imagery in each scene. You can just clearly imagine this beautiful world as if you were there yourself. The storytelling was just so fascinating that you don?t want to put the book down...

    The Heart of the Fae and Veins of Magic are together a gripping reimaging of The Beauty and the Beast. The tale is of Sorcha of U Nill, a fiery, nobody midwife, desperate to do something with her life and make herself heard, all while attempting to find a way to save her father and...

    Second book was more plot focused and I loved it! The world building is spectacular and the prose just beautiful! Each character has a story, a personality, a purpose. It was a roller coaster of emotions for me but again, I just couldn't put the book down. Beautifully written and I ...

    Veins of Magic was a perfect tie in to this two parter Celtic fantasy inspired by Beauty and the Beast. I hung on to every word as I was always eager to find out what was going to happen nect! Will she ever see her faery king again? Are her friends on the other side alive or did the fl...
