My Thoughts
I am always leery when I accept a YA fantasy book for review, as I never know if I will be able to get through the book. I had these thoughts with Emily's House but my fears were unwarranted. I enjoyed this book a lot, so much in fact I hope to read the next in the series. What caught my attention was the Celtic mysticism, I love anything with a Celtic/Irish  twist. This book was very easy to read and understand. Very fast paced and action packed, good versus evil with some mythology thrown in for good measure. I think this book is great for YA and and any age for that matter. You will love and cheer on the characters as they do battle with the bad guy. 
I received a review copy of this book from Fierce Reading Virtual Book tours and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
