Summary: (from Goodreads)
Conceived in a lie and trapped in a tree throughout her gestation, Morrigan's birth was truly magical. After that start, she spent the next eighteen years raised as a normal girl in Oklahoma.

Upon discovering the truth of her heritage, her rage and grief take on a power of their own, carrying her back to the world of Partholon. Yet, instead of being respected as the daughter of the Goddess Incarnate, Morrigan feels like a shunned outsider.

In her desperation to belong to Partholon, she confronts forces she can't fully understand or control. And soon a strange darkness draws closer…

The Story:
This story is mostly about Rhiannons daughter Morrigan. Who finds about her heritage. That her mother once was high priestess for a goddess in another world.
But things get complicated when you find out that everything you knew about yourself and your life, shows up to be one big lie. So who is she really? And what is she suppose to do with her life?
Will she find all her answers in the other world.?
KoblingMy Opinion:
I liked this book, it was great entertainment. Though I didn`t like it as much as the first one. There wasn`t that much humor in this one, but still the story was ok.
I like the little romance parts and the whole to worlds, so different, but with same people. If you read the books, you understand what I mean :P Like the idea and the story.
So I gave this book a 5 out of 6 stars :)

It kept me entertained the whole way. And looking forward to read the rest of the series :) Just hope they will translate them to norwegian. Since I have read this series in norwegian so far. :)
