Author: Kersten Hamilton

Series: Book 2, The Goblin Wars

First Line: "Tears were spilling down Teagan Wyllton's cheeks as she went up the stairs."

Summary: May Contain Spoilers!  The battle against goblinkind continues . . . but which side will Teagan be on? 

Teagan, Finn, and Aiden have made it out of Mag Mell alive, but the Dark Man’s forces are hot on their heels. Back in Chicago, Tea’s goblin cousins show up at her school, sure she will come back to Mag Mell, as goblin blood is never passive once awoken. Soon she will belong to Fear Doirich and join them. In the meantime, they are happy to entertain themselves by trying to seduce, kidnap, or kill Tea’s family and friends. Tea knows she doesn’t have much time left, and she refuses to leave Finn or her family to be tortured and killed. A wild Stormrider, born to rule and reign, is growing stronger inside her. But as long as she can hold on, she’s still Teagan Wylltson, who plans to be a veterinarian and who heals the sick and hurting. The disease that’s destroying her—that’s destroying them all—has a name: Fear Doirich. And Teagan Wylltson is not going to let him win.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Thoughts:  Teagan and Finn are back in book two of this series.  I really enjoyed Tyger Tyger and could not wait for the next book in the series.  Needless to say In the Forests of the Night did not disappoint.  It was so amazing and just as good if not better than the first book.

I really feel like In the Forests of The Night has an addictive quality about it.  I started reading it and when in no time 100 pages had flown by.  I'm usually a slow reader so when I can just fly through a book it is generally a sign of a really good book.

I loved the whole story and it was really great getting back into the whole magical world of Fear Doirich and Mag Mell.  I really love Celtic mythology and this book is just packed with it.  I loved reading about Aiden's magical ability and getting to know some of the other characters better.

I also love Teagan and Finn, they seem like such a cool couple and I really love the way they interact with each other.

Overall, I would have to say that I absolutely loved In the Forests of the Night, it's a brilliant book and I know I'm going to be highly awaiting the release of the next book.  If you love fantasy and you haven't read this or the first book, Tyger Tyger yet, you are definitely missing out!
