Very interesting. What a unique concept and in my opinion a great read!

I really wanted to like this book - and yes, I was sucked in because as a die-hard Harry Potter fan, I saw the word Hallows in the title, and recognized Michael Scott as the author of the popular junior Nicholas Flamel series.

And so I dove in, excited to be reading a grown up book again. Only to find myself struggling through the sex and the gore. What happened Mr. Scott? Do I thank you or your co-author Ms. Freedman for this? Perhaps I've been reading too much YA and junior fiction of late, and I'm not used to this.

The premise was interesting, as it is based on British and Celtic lore, which I did end up looking more into. But otherwise...the book didn't grab me with it's story the way it did with the cover. But I did finish it, so it couldn't have been that horrible.

This book was very unique and rapidly became one I could not stop reading until it was finished! I really loved this book and can't wait for the next novel.

I read the Hallows years ago by M Scott and now I read this book. Its just the same book,
Same plot, some characters remained the same, other changed, blood and gore has changed since the original book was published.
Only changes were made was to sex/ gore and scenery. Just more of everything.
Only requested it, because I had thought it was a continuation of the original Hallows book, now I understand its first of a trilogy? I was kinda disappointed when I found I remembered that I had read it years ago.
Just an updated version of the original Hallows book published in 1995!!

Readers (especially parents) beware. This book is nothing like the Nicholas Flamel series that Michael Scott is well known for. The book is based on Christianity and British mythology. There is a lot of violence throughout the book associated with Christian blood rituals and sacrifices that were practiced in it's beginning and the descriptions may be viewed as extreme. And there is a lot of sex! The book, though, is fast paced, has short chapters, and, in my view, well done.
