Feasted On: A Goblin Wars Book, Book 1

Format: Paperback | Pages: 304 | Release Date: November 2010 | Publisher: Clarion Books

"Tyger Tyger" [A Goblin Wars Book, Book 1] by Kersten Hamilton ( I read this as a part of We Love YA! A young adult arc tour site)

My Book Summary : Teagan has her summer (and her future) all mapped out, but when her "cousin" Finn moves into her house those plans suddenly change. The day before Finn shows up Teagan's best friend Abby tells her that she needs to be careful because she had a dream where a bunch of goblins (like the ones in Teagan's mothers story books .. and worse) are going to be coming after Teagan soon. When she is told this she laughs it off, but when Finn shows up and explains he's the Mac Camhaill (the last in his family line that's a goblin hunter), Teagan starts to rethink about what her friend told her. Then, not long after Finn stays, there she starts to see some goblins/sidhe of her own that hurt some small animals she works with at the zoo to her own mother.

Finn blames himself and leaves. However, when summer is over Finn returns because of a request from his grandmother. But once he shows up, he realizes he can't complete his request and has to take Teagan and her little brother Aiden back to his grandmother's place to get help. And in doing so, they set out on an adventure/rescue mission that will change Teagan's life for forever ....

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! After waiting for this book for a while ... and reading the book's description again and again ... I wasn't sure I was going to like this book ... however, as soon as I started reading it I was pleasantly surprised and got addicted to the storyline, the characters, and everything right away. Teagan learns about herself in this book and grows as a character more so then I would have thought. Aiden is adorable ... I would love to hear him sing! And Finn is the bad boy with the kind soul you would just love to have him all to yourself. *sigh*

So ... if you’re a fan of myth, magic, and YA romance then this is the book for you!! It was a great new take on fairies/goblins, angels, and all of the mythical beings that have been written about lately! I cannot wait to see where the author will take this series! =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
"'Rain or shine'?"
"That's the way it sounds." Raynor nodded. "But not the way it's spelled." He showed Aiden his badge.
Aiden studied the letters, and then the man's face. "I can't read. What did you eat for dinner last night?"
"Me?" Raynor said. "Pizza."
"Did you find it in a Dumpster?"
Teagan pinched him, and he whirled to look at her.
Don't talk about that, she signed. All they needed was for Aiden to tell this guy they'd slept in a ditch and eaten from a Dumpster. He'd have cops waiting for them in Gary. ~ within Chapter 12
