    1. I received this book via ’ First Reads Giveaways. The book starts off with a glossary of terms and a pronunciation guide. A cautious optimism spread through my cynical, cold little heart. This book promised me exotic sounding deities from Irish Mythology, druids, sidhe/fairies, runes, epic, legendary warriors etc. I was sold. The only things I know of Ireland and its folklore have been gleaned from Lucky Charms commercials and repeat viewings of Leprechaun 5: In the Hood. So needless to say, I [...]

    2. 3.5 starsThis was an enjoyable story, although I did find it a bit confusing in places.Half of this book revolved around Grace, and the fact that she had to get married because the family’s money was gone (remind anyone else of The Luxe by Anna Godberson?). Anyway, she was to have a debut, and was to marry this man called Patrick who happened to be her best friend’s brother, and thus save her family from ruin, as her brother had drank and gambled away all their money.“Aidan wasn’t drunk [...]

    3. I should get an award for being able to finish books like this. Nothing happened, really nothing :( .There are the Fianna that want to save Ireland and they need a sacrifice and they have a gang in SUA because they're not sure who called them yet. Why does Ireland need saving? Because she's under the command of another country. Do we get to find out the bad parts about what's going on in Ireland? NO.Meet Grace Knox; she has lost everything and now she needs to marry for money. That's fine becaus [...]

    4. I have never read this author before but I am a big fan of YA historical fiction/fantasy and Celtic Folklore.This book is breathlessly compelling, I was frantically turning the pages to see what would happen.There was almost a Gothic tone to the story which I love.The narrative is told by three characters :Grace- a 17 yo girl whose family is newly impoverished. She has mysterious dreams and flash backs and holds together her family. Although she doesn't know it, she is a descendant of a Druid pr [...]

    5. I might have enjoyed this more if I was in a different mood. The beginning of this was promising, albeit a tad confusing. The events in the story follow the span of about 2 months and each chapter is broken up by POVs of Diarmid, Grace or Patrick. This is set in 1874 New York so there was a lot of Victorian etiquette and social stuff. I usually don’t mind period stories, but found the talk about what is proper and what isn’t bothersome.Diarmid is part of an ancient Irish group of warriors, T [...]

    6. This book had a lot to recommend it. I really enjoyed the Celtic legends and the history of the time period the book was set in. I really felt as if I was THERE. I was made FURIOUS by the "Harry Potter syndrome", where those who know what is going on refuse to tell the MC ANYthing, even though they are rather important to what is going on around them. The MC made a really poor decision to me, but I couldn't blame her, because she wasn't privy to the same information that the reader was. She made [...]

    7. Grace Knox should be living a worry-free life, dating boys and hosting tea parties, but her family's situation has taken a turn for the worse. Since her father's death, debt collectors have been visiting her house everyday and her brother, who is now head of the household, is throwing away what money they do have on booze and gambling. They have practically sold all of their family heirlooms and her mother even took a job as a piano teacher to make ends meet, but what they really need is for Gra [...]

    8. 4.5 starsIt was such an enthralling story, the kind that made me believe I was actually there in Victorian New York with Grace and Derry; when I stopped reading, I was disoriented and confused as to why I was still in my bedroom.I'm excited to see where the story leads.

    9. I gobbled up Megan Chance's Fianna trilogy like it was candy--reading so quickly through it that I didn't even take the time to review the first book before going on to the second book (and then the third) and by the end of it all, I was kind of overwhelmed by the thought of reviewing the first book in a trilogy when I've already finished the trilogy and so I just never reviewed it at all. But you know, I got to thinking tonight that I'm not sure if anyone actually reads my reviews or not, but i [...]

    10. I went into this book with a little trepidation. Despite normally not doing so, I had managed to stumble across a few of the other reviews before I started, and they weren't all glowing. Pacing seemed to be a major concern from a number of reviewers and lack of plot driven excitement. Well, I'm happy to say that while the story as a whole was slow, I didn't find it dull. When working with trilogies or series it can be difficult to get the world building and plot driver levels correct to keep yo [...]

    11. I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.Let me say this is the 1st YA book in a while to really grab my interest. This book gives me some of all my favorite things. A love triangle, gods, and of course a good old prophecy that has been lost in the sea of time. There is a slow build in this book that I enjoy has the characters come more alive this way. I enjoyed the twist towards the end, I was taken totally off character with it!( I LOVE WHEN THIS HAPPENS). I cann [...]

    12. So I recently won The Shadows from a giveaway and was pleased that I had won.The Shadows was a really good and interesting story! The plot was really great and the characters all made the story come together! What captured my attention the most was the Irish background and culture that was included throughout the story. I was asked for my honest review and it was a really good book who I would recommend to anyone looking for a ya novel with mystery,fantasy,history, and some steam punkish victori [...]

    13. a basically unremarkable book. lots of unpronounceable names - a huge storytelling pet-peeve of mine - coupled with an at times annoying main character and a very slow moving plot. i like the idea of mixing old Irish legends with a victorian setting, but ultimately the delivery just fell short. however, as so often happens in lack luster novels with sequels, something happened in the last few pages that made me forget the slog it was to get through the book and have me reaching for the next in t [...]

    14. I don't have much to save about this novel other than I just didn't like it. I didn't like the writing style. The story was too predictable and I didn't connect with any of the characters. Nothing really happens in this book to pull me in and keep my interest. *I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

    15. This was pretty bad. The mythology it is based on was really interesting, but Grace was indecisive, obtuse, and passive. At no point did she take control of her destiny. Also, this author seems to think romance is about letting overbearing men take your choices from you. Which is gross.

    16. Fabulous! I was so delighted to be given this gem by local author Megan Chance. She made Irish mythology fun and accessible in a way it's never been for me before. I just ordered the second book and can't wait for it to arrive.

    17. Fast and thought provoking read about recognizing and taking advantage of the unpredictability of success in life (professional and personal). Writing style reminds me of Gladwell.

    18. Fantasy, mystery and romance are intermingled in this engrossing tale of Celtic lore brought to the 19th century world of New York City.Megan Chance’s, “The Shadows; The Fianna Trilogy Book One” is targeted for teenagers and young adults. However, older adults like myself can enjoy it as well. The author’s writing is easy and fluid, and I found myself enchanted. Megan really knows how to set the ambience of each scene.When Grace Knox’s father dies, her family is left destitute. Her fat [...]

    19. OK, maybe this book had the magic formula to win me over (Irish legends+magic+Victorian setting+handsome young men), but I have to admit to really enjoying this. So much so, I was happy to dismiss anything that seemed historically off-putting ("OK, so this character in Victorian New York sounds kind of like a Valley Girl might be the audio book narrator, but either way, it's alright," and "OK, so a well-to-do young lady just totally cursed nah, it's cool. That's fine."). But I loved the charac [...]

    20. This was an interesting story. I enjoyed the plot, it is a good introduction to a series. The character list at the beginning was a tad intimidating, however it turned out to be easy to follow. I would like to continue this series in the future.

    21. Great If you love your fantasy with a mixture of Victorian era swing and mystery. This is for you. Great story.

    22. Good conceptThe concept is good but the ending seemed rushed and more of a way to hurry to the next book. It wasn't bad but not fabulous.

    23. Title: The Shadows (The Fianna Trilogy)Author: Megan ChanceType: Fantasy, Historical, RomanceRating: 3 starsThe ShadowsBlurb:Grace Knox has grown up hearing the folktales of her Irish ancestors, especially about the warriors who fought for control of Ireland. In 19th-century New York City, however, these legends are far from Grace's mind. She's much more concerned with how to protect her family from debt collectors, and whether her childhood friend Patrick Devlin will propose. Patrick is a membe [...]

    25. *I received a free digital copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.The Shadows is an intriguing tale about legends, stories, warriors, and how the past is brought back to life to create a new future. Inevitably, Grace must make a choice in the end, and everything depends on her making the right one.

    26. ARC kindly provided by Skyscape via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Review Now this was a book I enjoyed! Megan Chance brings to you a compelling tale of Irish history, myth and lore full of love, romance and enchanting spells. 'The Shadows" was a book I enjoyed primarily because it was so different from many other paranormal novels which I have read before. Instead of picking vampires, werewolves and fairies, Megan Chance chose to bring in a completely original idea of myth from a co [...]

    27. At seventeen, Grace Knox has more to worry about than most girls her age. Debt collectors pound on the door. Her older brother drinks away what assets the family still owns. Grace helps care for her ill, bedridden grandmother. Then, there is her mother who wants Grace to marry and save them all. Grace doesn’t know what to do and in 19th century New York, there aren’t many options for a girl of her background, class and apparently scant education. Her wealthy childhood friend, Patrick Devlin [...]
