Sixteen-year-old Deirdre Monaghan is a painfully shy but prodigiously gifted musician. She's about to find out she's also a cloverhand—one who can see faeries. When a mysterious boy enters her ordinary suburban life, seemingly out of nowhere, Deirdre finds herself infatuated. Trouble is, the enigmatic and conflicted Luke turns out to be a gallowglass—a soulless faerie assassin—and Deirdre is meant to be his next mark. Deirdre has to decide if Luke's feelings towards her are real, or only a way to lure her deeper into the world of Faerie.
This book was amazing. It was all about this girl named Deirdre who is a threat to the Queen fairy because she has powers that she could use against the queen if she wanted to. The Queen sends her servant Luke to kill Deirdre but when he meets her he falls in love. Deirdre has no idea who she is and what powers she possesses and Luke tries to help her in every way he can, even though he is a servant to the Queen. I love the romance between Deirdre and Luke. She has no idea who he is or where he came from but she still can’t help just going along with him. She trusts him automatically. They have such a good connection, that it just makes you want to read and read to find out what happens between them. Also Luke is kind of a bad boy with a terrible past, and reading about him just makes you really feel for him and love him even more. I also like how in the beginning Deirdre really doesn’t think so highly of herself but in the end she gains strength and courage to do what needs to be done. I really love this author, and so does Grace. She also wrote the books Shiver, and Linger, which are two of the best books ever. If you want to read more about them check out the authors site.
