Review

"An amazing story with twists and turns I never saw coming. Unique and intriguing with the just right mixture of excitement, romance, and mystery, BRIDGER is sure to make a splash in the YA realm." --H. Fields, author of The Willows: Haven

"I gave this book a go and let me tell you this book took me far and beyond blown away! Megan, Megan, Megan, I am your biggest fan and a fan of this series!" --TT, Amazon Reviewer

"I was up last night until 2am and just went to sleep because I knew I wouldn't be able to function today if I didn't go to bed. Yes, the story is this good...It's a story of Irish Folklore, Faeries, long battles and love. Most of all, it's a story about blood and revenge. A must read!" --Thamy, Amazon Reviewer

"Megan Curd has written a fast-paced story that catches you early and doesn't let you go." --I. Gandolfo, Amazon Reviewer

The author sent me this book to read and review and I really liked it! The paranormal YA genre has gotten kind of cliche and stupid lately, if you ask me, so it's nice to see something different and refreshing when it pops up.

I was really impressed with the mythology and thought large parts of Bridger were extremely original, which I really enjoyed. I don't believe I have read a book about changelings yet, and if I have, it wasn't very memorable. The plot was a lot of fun and I really appreciate what the author tried to do here.

Let's talk characters. Oh my, I loved Memaw so much. She's probably one of my top characters so far this year. She was such an awesome and tough lady, but incredibly loveable and I really thought she was developed well. I liked Ashlyn as well and enjoyed watching her relationship with Memaw unfold. But I do have to talk about one thing that bothered me. The relationship between Ashlyn and Liam developed too quickly. I am extremely annoyed by insta-love relationships. That and there was a lack of sexual tension so I wasn't really feeling the love. Later on in the novel when we meet Antony and he flirts with Ashlyn, well I thought that was written really well and what was missing from Ash and Liam's relationship.

The pacing was a bit off too. There were a few parts where I wondered when something was going to happen and hoping that it would happen soon. I lost focus in a couple of places and if I had edited it I would have tightened those up. But it wasn't anything major.

Overall a very fun read with a different twist on the ya paranormal genre that I think most readers will enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Ashlyn McVean is an ordinary teenager who is thrown into an extraordinary series of events after the death of her father. On a trip to Ireland to visit family, she discovers her lineage is not so normal, and that she is the target of evil forces that are seeking to destroy her. We are led through the challenges that Ashlyn faces as she comes to terms with her newfound abilities and struggles to understand how to fix what her grandmother, Memaw, started many years ago.

I enjoyed this book. The story starts out with a dramatic event, and then never ceases to disappoint with the inclusion of dangerous pixies, an unusual grandmother, and of course, romance. I was impressed with Ms. Curd's imaginative plot about a girl who discovers how she is part of the fairy world and the consequences of this. Ashlyn's adventures were fun to read and the book was definitely a page-turner.

There were a couple of points in the book that were either confusing or unrealistic, which did sometimes make the story hard to follow. More description into the background of Memaw and the fairy world would have enhanced this issue, as well as developing Ashlyn's father's death in more detail into the story.

Ms. Curd's writing is fast-paced and was at times very humorous! I particularly enjoyed the silliness of the boys in the story - a pretty realistic high school situation. The writing was descriptive enough that I could easily imagine the different real-world and surreal locations Ashlyn, Liam, Reese and Memaw were in.

Overall, I gave the book 3 stars. While I feel the story and plot itself was creative and unique, and the character development enjoyable, there were several events that were difficult to follow, leaving me confused as to what was happening at certain points. But, the story has a lot of potential and I can't wait to learn what is in store next for Ashlyn!

Format: Kindle Edition
Emotional wounds still fresh from her father's death, Ashlyn McVean discovers that faeries exist. Not just that, but that she herself is a Bridger - one of two in existence. Add that to a plethora of secrets slowly seeping out of her family, being stuck between a friend who wants to be more than just a friend, a boyfriend she can't be completely honest with, and a best friend who may or may not be psycho, and you have Ashlyn McVean's life.

What I love about Ashlyn is that she is your average girl. She has a brother she loves to tease, a mother who cares deeply, and a grandmother she doesn't always see eye-to-eye with. She's not the most popular girl in school but she's not completely invisible either. She's just a funny, video-game-loving, down-to-earth girl, and that's what makes her so lovable and relatable.

The book's settings, plural, are impressive. Moving characters half way around the world can be tricky if the story isn't about traveling. Curd manages to split the story between Ireland and the US effortlessly, delivering both the feel of a vacation abroad and the drone of high school effortlessly.

Faeries. Irish boys. Ninja grannies (okay, not really, but you'll see what I mean,) this book is an entertaining read from one page to the next. The only downside is that it is currently only available as an ebook. It'll be available on paperback at the end of the month through Amazon. But until then, get with the times! Download Bridger by Megan Curd and enjoy!

Format: Paperback
Losing your father a week before Christmas would ruin any normal person's holiday. Ashlyn McVean decides to honor her father's memory by taking the trip her father always dreamed of taking with her, a tour of Ireland and a meet up with his extended family. On this trip, she finds out that she isn't human and neither is her Grandmother, Memaw. In addition to mythical creatures and adventure, a love interest adds spice to this story.

The heroine, Ashlyn, has a spicy, practical personality. She's loyal to her family and friends. Her willingness to protect them shows her loving heart, and is probably her best quality.

Supporting characters, Liam, Reese, and Memaw are all admirable and brave. Liam is Ashlyn's love interest, he is sworn to protect her. Any injuries she receives, he experiences as well. They are bound to each other by ancient magic. Reese is Ashlyn's best friend, he always believes in her. He supports her and is able to lift her spirits no matter what. Memaw trains and aids Ashlyn, helping her learn her talents and skills. She saves Ashlyn from Jamie and Ankou. Jamie is a Changeling, a dark creature who kidnaps humans and makes them slaves. Ankou is her master who has a grudge against Memaw.

This story is never dull. The events are unusual and fast-paced, the storyline is unique. The added quality of mythology adds much to the already interesting story.

Bridger is meant for teen girls or young adult women. The romance and action in it is distinctly for females. The themes in it lend themselves toward a female audience.
