Author Overview - Ireland has many secrets... this is one of them.

The Legacy of Kilkenny an incredible journey for these young adults. The reader will be drawn into this romantic yet invigorating story of friends and lovers. The prophecy has been stated, now it will be lived.
My review - I was hooked from the start when I read The Legacy of Kilkenny (TLOK). Most teenagers think that they have a lot on their plate during high school, they haven't met Abel Casey yet. TLOK is written in both Abel and Pru's point of view which I felt gave it an extra edge. I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter to see what the other person was going to talk about. Even at the point of completing the book I wanted more, more, more! Devyn definitely left the book open to build off of in her series. I loved the characters so much, I don't think I could pick a favorite... although what is not to love about Oakley! It was so fun to learn about Abel from the beginning pages and watch him grow into a strong and confident person by the end. He has a lot of grown up decisions to make that will affect the rest of his life, as well as the lives of those around him. There was drama, evilness, sadness, comedy and love... and you can feel all those emotions pouring out of this book.
