Goblin Wars #03: When the Stars Threw Down Their Spearsby Kersten Hamilton
Synopses & Reviews
Killing a teacher in the school cafeteria lands Teagan, Finn, and Abby's family in trouble with the law. Mamieo calls in a young half-Traveler half-Scottish lawyer, Seamus McGillahee, telling him the Almighty has spoken to her about a great mending and tending to be done in Mag Mell.
Seamus and Tea get along well until he finds out that she is sídhe—but that is just the beginning of the unsettling things he encounters as he joins the battle against goblin kind. The Wylltsons try to carry on with their lives, but Aiden is badly scared by a new song that is stuck to him. More goblins have snuck into the city, and Ms. Skinner is still causing trouble for Teagan and her family. Meanwhile, Tea and Finns relationship is heating up, but he is still bound by the curse of the Mac Cumhaill to fight goblins his entire life, and by blood she is one of them. Nonetheless, at night Teagan leaves her flesh and bones behind and hunts goblins across Chicago with Finn and the phookah Gil.
Then the gateway to Mag Mell opens, and the Wylltsons find themselves caught in a trap. Mab and Fear Doirich are back together again, and they are angry. As her loved ones begin to die, Teagan realizes that she must return to Mag Mell and fight to set things right and save those who remain. . . . But can she destroy the Dark Man and his minions and release Finn from his curse before it's too late?
Teagan and Finn are back in this epic page-turning conclusion to the Goblin Wars trilogy, a smart YA fantasy that incorporates Celtic mythology, adventure, and paranormal romance.
“[A] spectacular conclusion .” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Locked doors are opening, and magical creatures are tumbling through portals from Mag Mell, the world-between-worlds, into the streets of Chicago. Meanwhile, the romance between seventeen-year-old Teagan, who is part goblin, and the alluring bad boy Finn Mac Cumhaill is heating up . . . which is awkward, considering he is bound by a family curse to fight goblins his entire life. Celtic mythology, adventure, and paranormal romance fuse in the electrifying finale of the critically acclaimed Goblin Wars trilogy.
“People will die.”
Locked doors are opening, and uncanny creatures are tumbling through mysterious portals from Mag Mell, the world-between-worlds, into the streets of Chicago. The Dark Man has marked Aiden with a new song thats scared him badly, and a frightening new group of sídhe is lurking nearby.
Teagan knows this is war, and she must protect her family. She leaves her flesh and bones behind to join Finn in hunting the evil beings across the city. Meanwhile, their relationship is heating up—almost faster than they can control. But he is still bound to fight goblins his entire life . . . and by blood she is one of them now.
Then the gateway to Mag Mell cracks open again, and the Wylltsons find themselves caught in a trap. As her loved ones begin to die, Teagan realizes that she must destroy the Dark Man and his minions once and for all in order to save those who remain . . .
. . . before it is too late.
