    8. Going into this novel, I wasn t really sure what to expect I certainly wasn t expecting the level of fantasy legend that s between the covers There are many things I liked about this novel the Scottish setting and all things Highlands, the characters were well drawn especially Matt , the lore and legends were enjoyable, and the magical elements were fun what can I say I love fairies and all things that sparkle I also liked what started out as child psychology, when it came to Sasha and her muten [...]

    10. Five Point Review 1 The plot was interesting enough After the death of her husband, Rainey was forced to not only pick up the pieces of her and her daughter s lives, but deal with her daughter s failure to speak However, it was incredibly tough to get through Even though the premise was interesting, the story just didn t grab me 2 Matt I don t know what it is but I just did not like him He struck me as a weirdo and a creep No bueno.3 Language I m probably the only one that feels this way but the [...]

    11. Wow, what an odd book I don t even know where to begin.Rainey and her daughter Sasha, who has been mute since her father s death, have a lot of problems The biggest being Sasha s behavior Everything is spinning out of control Then their dear neighbor Emma finds a linguist and they set off on a over the top fantasy expedition.I really liked all of the main characters expect Rainey Since she was the main character that was a bit of a problem but my goodness was she a negative whiner Ugh Eventually [...]

    13. Beware if you are a friend who trusts my judgement that this book is really good, but the love scene is a little elaborate than any other book I ve read I m a good little girl, and I read good little books, and it wasn t necessarily offensive, but it was definitely descriptive than any other book I ve recommended There I ve stated my peace I loved the idea of this book I loved the characters I loved the setting Must Visit Scotland I read it because it looked good, and I get a free borrow from [...]

    14. I had this book in my house for the longest time and once i finally read it i was amazed This book is un like any other The young Girl Sasha who hasnt spoke since her father died then out of no where speaking but in a dead irish language was really intresting The reason why she acted out the way she did just to protect the acient fairies really surprised me The last thing i would of expected an 8 year old girl to be doing Overall this was a very intresting and unique book to read.

    15. I wanted to love it for example, I really thought the folklore in this book was excellent I must say I did enjoy Sasha s character very much I thought she was written very well However, there were a few happenings that just didn t sit with me The romance didn t go over with me terribly well Also, what happened with those professionals that just suddenly seemed to stop pursuing Sasha Rainey

    16. The Starry Child presents a new take on the Scottish paranormal romance novel one that in many ways is realistic than most mundane characters, settings, and interactions and in others is terribly hard to swallow dialogue, non paranormal plot, etc Though much could be done to improve this tale proofreading, heat between the protagonists, better pacing, etc , it s worth the 2.99 charges for the Kindle edition.

    17. This was a fun and easy read The main character s problems were a little heavy handed and extreme, but I wasn t terribly bothered by that and understood the author s need to push the characters to move the story along I enjoyed the gradual reveal of the legend and enjoyed the characters Will look into the next books in the series.

    18. Fascinating ReadI thoroughly enjoyed this book It is well written, and keeps the readers interest The Gaelic language throughout is interesting, but looking over the pronunciation at the end, showed me I was way off in pronunciation I would definitely recommend it to others, and am looking forward to reading the other books in the series.

    19. This book was fantastic I read it in less than a day I m usually very skeptical of free downloads, and usually don t like the writing style or stories available, but this far exceeded my expectations Lynn Hanna has woven an absolutely magical story, and I strongly suggest anyone who is a fan of books like Outlander give this a go.

    20. Well I have a soft spot for faeries, elves, brownies and the like so this book was right up my alley Plus I am a believer in reincarnation and true love This book blends the myths with todays world and it was fun It takes you on a trip to the 5 sister falls in the highland country Loved it This is one I would read again.

    21. This book was a bit fantasy genre than I m used to reading It came up under historical fiction, but I think fantasy is accurate I did enjoy the book and it kept me engaged I even went on to read the 2nd book in the series Circle of Time You kind of just have to go with where the author is taking you and enjoy the ride I will read the 3rd installment when it comes out.

    23. Nice, but a bit too sweet.I liked this Scottish Fairytale, but it it just went overboard on the sappy dramatic tone Lovely descriptions of place and characters, especially the Child and the Fairies.

    24. THE STARRY CHILD is a love story wrapped in Celtic myths and a touch of fairies It s well written, with nice twists and turns, and deft descriptions of the characters and the landscape, easy to picture and relate to.

    25. So I had never even heard of the genre paranormal romance before There was enough I liked about it to save it from being only one or two stars, but I probably won t venture down that fairy path too many times

    26. An unusual read about a gifted child who has not spoken since her father s death When the usual state people sticki their noses where they do not belong, the mother is befriended by a Scottish man who takes them to Scotland to escape the authorties An interesting and unusual read.

    27. While I don t regret reading this book it certainly held my attention I found many things to be unbelievable or not quite fully explained enough for my liking It had a very interesting premise and I liked the connections to Scottish mythology, but I won t be reading further books in the series.

    28. Not my usual choice for reading, but I was intrigued by the blurb on Fantasy, fairies, and falling in love all in the space of about a week Easy read, light read, requires much suspension of belief.
