The Angel Stone

Fairwick Chronicles, #3

The final book of the Fairwick Trilogy and it could be any better. First, you could read and enjoy this book without having read the first two but you would have missed all the lead up and some of the comments wouldn’t make a lot of sense. Still, it could be done. But, this trilogy is so good, you really should read all three stories in order. Time travel, magic, mysterious creatures and a battle with unlikely allies all make this a fast paced action paranormal romance with an appeal to a vast audience. In other words, lots of readers can enjoy this book! While there is some adult content, it’s still appropriate for older teens and oldsters alike. There are lessons to be learned amongst the magic and not all of them easy. For a while I wasn’t sure if there was going to be a happy ending but with a unique twist, things become what they should be. And, while this trilogy is over, I’d love to revisit Fairwick College. The characters that attend and work there are varied, different and extremely loveable and rememberable. The world developed is unique and fun. And, this story ends with world wide possibilities that would be interesting to read about. Fantastic ending to a wonderful trilogy.

Callie McFay is starting a new school year with some interesting new students, a dean who she doesn’t trust or like and the man she loves dead. Most of her friends returned to Fairy and since the door was destroyed can never return. But, Callie has been told that there is another door that only she can open. Can she figure out where it is and how to open it before Halloween? If not, terrible things are going to happen at the school she loves and to the friends she still has left. To make it all happen Callie must find the Angel Stone and the last place it was seen was in the 17th century! Callie will be hitting the books to figure this puzzle out. Along the way she will also be tempted by the love of her life. Which will she choose?

Book Blurb for The Angel Stone

A can’t-miss read for fans of Deborah Harkness and Karen Marie Moning, The Angel Stone weaves a tale of ancient folklore and thrilling fantasy with a passionate love story that transcends time.  

For Callie McFay, a half-witch/half-fey professor of folklore and Gothic literature, the fight to save the enchanted town of Fairwick, New York, is far from over. After a hostile takeover by the Grove—a sinister group of witches and their cohorts—many of the local fey have been banished or killed, including Callie’s one true love. And in place of the spirit of tolerance and harmony, the new administration at Fairwick College has fostered an air of danger and distrust.

With her unique magical abilities, Callie is the only one who can rescue her friends from exile and restore order to the school—a task that requires her to find the Angel Stone, a legendary talisman of immense power. Propelled on an extraordinary quest back to seventeenth-century Scotland, Callie risks her life to obtain the stone. Yet when she encounters a sexy incarnation of her lost love, she finds the greater risk is to her heart. As the fate of Fairwick hangs in the balance, Callie must make a wrenching choice: reclaim a chance for eternal passion or save everything she holds dear.
