Their love was meant to be.
When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRís.
But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.
Fallon s debut novel, first published on the HarperCollins online writing community inkpop.com and then selected for print, is a better-than-average offering that occasionally betrays its amateur roots with some uneven pacing. The setup is familiar and briskly handled: 17-year-old Megan Rosenberg has moved to Kinsale, Ireland, with her father after several unsettled years following the death of Megan s mother. Megan fits right in with the popular crowd at her new school, but a broodingly handsome boy, Adam DeR s, keeps staring at her, and Megan stares right back, despite her friends warnings. Several chapters of teenage day-in-the-life narration ensue before Fallon suddenly dumps mysterious marks, elemental forces, and the Celtic goddess Danu into the mix, and the story takes off in a paranormal direction that the first third of the book has only hinted at. The intense, immediate romance between Megan and Adam remains the focus and the main draw. It s an engaging story, heavy on the snogging and light on the mystical perils, from an author likely to improve with time. Ages 13 up.

It was okay but...
I was super excited to read this. But as I was reading it, I couldn't help but notice the plot was almost exactly the same as Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed (which is one of my favorite books).
