Overview

I never heard him come after me and even as I climbed the slope and stumbled onto our shaded back lawn, I didn�t look back. It was like the day the gnomes chased me all over again, but this time I was not escaping some horrible little creatures, I was fleeing from an incredibly good-looking guy who could very well understand me completely. I was either saving myself from that serial killer I always imagined lived down in the swamp, or I had finally gone over the deep end . . .

Meghan Elam has been strange her entire life: her eyes have this odd habit of changing color and she sees and hears things no one else does. When the visions and voices in her head start to get worse, she is convinced that her parents will want to drag her off to another psychiatrist. That is, until the mysterious Cade MacRoich shows up out of nowhere with an explanation of his own.

Cade brings her news of another realm where goblins and gnomes are the norm, a place where whispering spirits exist in the very earth, and a world where Meghan just might find the answers she has always sought.

Meghan Elam is not just an ordinary person, that's what the people around her think, especially the ones who find her weird. Even Meghan herself thought that she was abnormal. Her entire life is like a mystery to her because of the voices she would hear and the strange things she saw. Little did she know that it would be part of who she was and what she would become. Faelorehn was a well paced book, filled with twists and turns. Meghan's character was well established throughout the book. Jenna Johnson gave great visual details of every aspect of the book. This book will leave you wanting more. It was a great beginning of the trilogy. I am dying to read the next one

Faelorehn is a great first book in Ms. Johnson’s Otherworld Trilogy. Meghan Elam is a 17-year old junior trying to fit in despite the fact that most of her classmates think she is crazy. But Meghan has a small group of loyal friends who accept her the way she is. The side characters are fun and intriguing, particularly Robyn, who is into the Pagan Religion and constantly makes her friends take part in the Celtic rituals. Meghan is constantly subjected to teasing and tormenting by her peers, and Ms. Johnson does a good job of showing Meghan’s strength by not having her show too much outward emotion at their teasing, while still making her character realistic since the reader experiences Meghan’s inner turmoil. Just like any teenage girl who has never had a boy show interest in her, Meghan is quickly taken with Cade MacRoich when he shows up in her life. But he isn’t a normal boy, he is from the otherworld and it is from Cade that Meghan learns about who she is. In Faelorehn, the author does a great job of setting up the series and hinting at what’s to come down the road. You find out just enough about Meghan’s past and the mysterious Cade to leave you wanting to know more. There are a lot of minor characters in the first book (Meghan has a large family) and I am hoping that we will learn more about them as the series progresses! Overall, Faelorehn is a great, quick read that once I started, I couldn’t put down.

I was expecting more romance but got non. Just meghan becoming desperate and obsessed over cade. I foound myself often yelling at maghan for being such a druggie for cade. It was annoying there was no spark it just showed meghan obsessing over cades arrival. It didnt even hint that cade liked her. There was no suspene or drama. Very boring. Sorry to say this but this read was a waste of my time

I did enjoy this book, but i have read better. I like the unique creatures that the author creates. Even the gruesome ones like the little goblins. The book does get slow in some parts like when she is not getting attacked and only thinking about Cade. Claire is also annoying and stupid. Could'nt she realize that Cade was safe and the Morrigan was lying. It was way to obvious, and even if he was in danger what was she going to do? Its not going to stop me fom reading the other books though. But i really felt like slapping some sense into her though.

This was a brief story that catches your attention though leaves you wishing for more. A short story with a lot of information to pass on, I felt that it spent too much time on the background and not enough on the story or character development. There was a lot of interesting mythology in this story with deep involvement and a few twists. Meghan is a realistic teenager, though a shy and not completely explained. Cade is a wonderfully dark and mysterious hero, though sometimes I felt he was too mysterious. Something that will probably be solved in the next book. Their romance is implied and lightly touched, but not really shown or detailed. It was sweet though. A short and quick story that left you hanging and waiting for the section of the story.

Faelorehn was my first read to review experience. I was very excited to get this opportunity. Faelorehn was a good book. I have to admit it started out slowly, but Ms. Jenna Johnson had a lot of background information to get out on Celtic mythology. I didn't know a whole lot about this, so the information was greatly appreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, Meghan and her friends had me rooting for them from the beginning. All unique in their own way, they fit together so well. I wanted more about Cale. I am still trying to wrap my mind around his angle. Is he gonna share his feelings for her, or stay in the background leaving her to figure out her new identity alone? I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

This book left me very confused and I didn't like the odd insta love that sort of happened. I really only liked Fergus. I wouldnt waste my time honestly.

As soon as I started this book I was instantly hooked. I was captivated from the first page until the last, I couldn't put it down. This series is going to be highly addictive. The book is well written, smooth flowing and easy to read. The characters, their emotions and the experiences they go through are portrayed extremely well. The imagery is s vivid I can picture every scene as if it were right in front of me. I fell in love with the characters right away. I look forward to getting to know them better in future books. Meghan has always thought she was crazy. She could see and hear things that noone else could and her eyes change color. In this book she meets Cade MacRoich. She thinks his is a typical teenage boy, until she finds out that he is Faelorehn, an immortal being from a place called Eile. What she isn't expecting is for him to justify the things she always thought made her seem crazy. Can he really know what's going on with her? I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait to see what happens next.

I loved this book and series from beginning, and I guess end, even though I didn't want it to end. I could not put this book down, or the others in this series.

My big problem with free books and that they are usually one in a series and then you have to pay for the rest of the series!

Too many nonessential details made this book slow-going. It took a long time before any of the characters caught my interest and empathy. Eventually I began to enjoy it but wish the first 30% of the book was ripped out.... sorry!
