The Last Killiney


Rating:  4 stars

This book read a lot like "outlander" by Diana Gabaldon to me.  I loved that book, and I enjoyed this one too.  I thought that the Disneyland arc at the beginning was unnecessary, though, besides the fact that it just set up a connection?  It could have started out with them as adults, with the flashback, and I feel it would have fit into the story a little better.  Overall, though, I did enjoy the premise of the novel.  I have dabbled in writing this genre of novel, but it is difficult to keep timelines straight, and I commend the author for doing that.  The resistance put up by Killiney seemed genuine, and the characters themselves had quite a bit of depth of character.  The story was rich, the characters believable, and the entire thing was enjoyable.
