A friend recommended this to me because she knew about my interest in celtic culture on account of my mother's side of the family. Well, I wasn't disappointed except to say the book lulled me into thinking it was an all action, modern day New York story despite the fact it said it wasn't. It starts off in New York with some pretty 'normal' killings which left me thinking where's this going but there's a creeping sense of something not being quite right and naturally enough things aren't as they seem. The main character has a heck of a lineage and plenty of baggage that comes with it, in other words he inherits a whole lot more than just a house and a stack of money.
The supernatural side of the story really takes off once 'Josh' actually gets to Wales and I loved this part of the book as things really start to unwind and he delves into Welsh and Celtic legends. I must confess I found the stuff about Spontaneous Human Combustion particularly creepy. I even liked the love interest secondary story which plays very nicely. There's a real sense of something building that's going to be nasty surprise and I'm interested to see how the celtic stuff continues to play out.
I read the book pretty quickly, actually too quickly , so I'm on the next one already!
