An historical fairy tale romance laced with romance, magic and legends! “I have something far more powerful and effective than a mere man." She added in a whisper, "I am protected by fairies.” The Witch’s Daughter by Leigh Ann Edwards is the second installment in the author’s Irish Witch series. It picks up exactly where the first book, The Farrier’s Daughter, left off. The series is a magical fantasy set in sixteenth century Ireland featuring witches, a swoony hero, an evil curse, fairies and dark supernatural forces. It’s well-written and edited with vivid descriptions and engrossing historical imagery. It’s planned to be a seven-book series with four books having been released so far. I inhaled all four in less than three days and am anxiously waiting for the fifth which can’t come too soon! This series is best read in order as each successive book is a continuation of the story of Alainn and Killian, our heroine and hero. It’s not a good stand alone read. Do yourself a favor and do not attempt to read this series out-of-order. Alainn, a servant to the O’Brien’s, has run away in an attempt to move on from the love of her life, Killian. He is heir to his own kingdom and is set to be married to another in an arranged marriage. But, fate intervenes, and Alainn ends up running into the very person she is running from. She is also looking for ways in which she may break the terrible curse on the O’Brien’s. She is no longer trying to hide her powers and they are growing exponentially stronger. Unfortunately, her expanding powers are also attracting dark supernatural forces who would usurp them. This is a not a tale for adolescents as the romance between Alainn and Killian is quite racy. I love the characters even though there are times I’d like to knock some sense into them. Following please find a couple of my favorite quotes from The Witch’s Daughter: “Oh Killian." Five immense cliffs rose up from the sea in marvelous grandeur. They were as tall and craggy and enormous as any mountains she'd seen in paintings. The layers of rock were varied in color and the radiant sunset playing against them only added to the enchantment of the location. She watched as waves crashed against the monumental stone walls.” “They take my breath away, Killian. How grand and marvelous, how utterly magnificent they are. I have never beheld such an astounding, impressive sight. Apart from seeing you unclothed, of course," she added.” --- “Keep your wits about you, Killian O'Brien, for you'll be no good to anyone if your head lies apart from the rest of your body!” This is another wonderfully fun story artfully woven by the author. It certainly kept me turning the pages with twists and turns galore. There’s a cliffhanger ending, but, it’s not a big deal as the next book, The Chieftain’s Daughter, is already available. I would advise having it on hand as you will want to start it as soon as you finish The Witch’s Daughter. If you enjoy historical fairy tale romances laced with romance, magic, treachery, myths and legends, I’d highly recommend that you check out The Irish Witch series!

Reviewed by Michelle Randall for Readers' Favorite All of her life, Alainn has lived between two worlds. Although she was of the servant class, the others didn't like her. They thought she was too good for herself because she was given certain privileges, raised and tutored with the master's sons. When she falls in love with the heir, Killian, life gets even more complicated, only for her to find out truths about her parentage. The Witch's Daughter is set in Ireland in 1536, and the historical imagery is amazing. The world has rules where the master and lord and the servant and peasant classes are truly divided and not to mix. But this is also the story of love and hate, of curses and revenge, of the excesses of privilege and the heartbreak of the lower class. Author Leigh Ann Edwards weaves a story that draws you in and has you guessing until the end. The Witch's Daughter is the second book in The Irish Witch series. That being said, I have not read the first book, but I was not hindered by that at all. This book stands alone and is easily understood, although it does make me wonder if the first book is the story of Alainn's parents, and if so I desperately want to read that now! Author Leigh Ann Edwards wrote this book with the ability to stand on its own, but if anything it makes you want to know more, the past and the future, how the curse came about and what is to come next. This is definitely an adult book; there is talk of sex and rape so I wouldn't recommend it for a younger audience, but I think it was a wonderful story all the same.

I am hooked on this story. Book 2 picks up exactly where the first ends, with Alainn trying to start over, away from the O'Brien's, looking for a way to break the curse, while hoping that Killian will find happiness in his arranged marriage. It backfires when she runs into the one person she is trying to leave. As her powers grow, the two are fighting for their lives, both against mortal enemies, and the supernatural forces drawn to Alainn's growing power. The story, characters and setting kept me turning pages, and I anxiously await the next book. This is one story I suggest starting from the beginning, as it is a continuation. **I received an advanced copy from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

"The Witch's Daughter" by Leigh Ann Edwards is Volume two in the "Irish Witch" series. This story picks up where "The Farrier's Daughter" left off. This continues with Killian O’Brien and Alainn McCreary's story. What will these two people do for love? If you are into fantasy, supernatural, and witchcraft romance, then this is a story that you might enjoy. This is not my normal type of reading. Be warned this is not a standalone and continues in the next book in this series. FYI, includes mature content. I received a copy of this book from Tule Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

This was a very captivating story. Alainn and Killian are reunited, but there is much standing in the way of their love. His uncle is determined to keep them apart. The level of drama and excitement in this story was very high. I couldn't wait to get to the end, and at the same time I didn't want it to end. The story still isn't over, and it ended in a very hopeful place. I'm looking forward to the final installment in this series.

I could not put this story down. So much happens in it that you are almost overwhelmed but at the same time disappointed that more did not happen! The story picks up where it ended in the previous book, Alainn on her way to town, away from Castle O'Brien. A great story that will have you wishing, believing, routing for the good and booing for the bad. Wow! I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
