The Angel Stone (Fairwick Chronicles #3)

The Angel Stone by Juliet Dark (Carol Goodman) is the third installment of the Fairwick Chronicles, following The Demon Lover (#1) and The Water Witch (#2).

The Angel Stone is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and BooksAMillion.

The Blurb
A can’t-miss read for fans of Deborah Harkness and Karen Marie Moning, The Angel Stone weaves a tale of ancient folklore and thrilling fantasy with a passionate love story that transcends time.

For Callie McFay, a half-witch/half-fey professor of folklore and Gothic literature, the fight to save the enchanted town of Fairwick, New York, is far from over. After a hostile takeover by the Grove—a sinister group of witches and their cohorts—many of the local fey have been banished or killed, including Callie’s one true love. And in place of the spirit of tolerance and harmony, the new administration at Fairwick College has fostered an air of danger and distrust.

With her unique magical abilities, Callie is the only one who can rescue her friends from exile and restore order to the school—a task that requires her to find the Angel Stone, a legendary talisman of immense power. Propelled on an extraordinary quest back to seventeenth-century Scotland, Callie risks her life to obtain the stone. Yet when she encounters a sexy incarnation of her lost love, she finds the greater risk is to her heart. As the fate of Fairwick hangs in the balance, Callie must make a wrenching choice: reclaim a chance for eternal passion or save everything she holds dear.
 My Review
The Angel Stone by Juliet Dark
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for a review - when I requested The Angel Stone, I didn't know that it was the third book in a series.

The story started slow, recapping the previous two books and reintroducing characters - which was good for me as I hadn't read The Demon Lover or The Water Witch. Once the world was properly established, the plot picked up speed. I guessed where most of the story was going before it got there, but this was a fun, quick read that I recommend for those who love paranormal/urban romance and fairy tales.
