The Forgotten Ones - Laura Howard

Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.

First thoughts after......
hmmmnmm le's going to be a long wait til December

How distracted did I get???
The Forgotten Ones is a pull your hair root for the humans kind of book!  LOL  Poor Alison is thrown into a world she never knew existed!  I love how she takes it like a champ!  Ethan is a fun guy who's a heart breaker and hopefully he won't break Alison's.  However I did want to smack her upside the head at one point!  There are many secondary characters I can't wait to learn more about! (I find a certain King fascinating.....)   The Forgotten Ones is a perfect start to what I know is going to be an awesome series!  Can't wait for the rest.  

I give The Forgotten Ones........

Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.
