Where has this gem of a story been hiding, I wish it was January already so I can read the next book. Kylah is just your average costume designer with over-protective brothers who are Irish and own a bar or is she? Kylah has been having disturbing dreams of late of monsters with claws and things chasing her. Liam of the dark fae is in pursuit as he has been searching for her for a long time and is getting closer now to finding her. Her dreams are visions and a warning but she does not know who she really is. Due to seeing her parents killed before her eyes and suffering unspeakable torture at Liam's hands, Kylah has had her memories changed so she does not know she is a Goddess but that will all change once she witnesses the death of her brother. Aerric has only just found her again, his one true mate and never knew she was alive as the knowledge was hidden from him. I felt sorry for him as he loved her dearly and to keep her from him was cruel and he will not let anything happen to her now that he has her in his arms again. He is pretty hot and sexy so I can understand why Kylah feels so drawn to him in her dreams and then realises that he is real and her true mate. Now Kylah needs to remember who she is and take control of her destiny before it is too late.
Now, I’ve dived into her Prophecies of the Nine series with Entasy. It’s a rich, uniquely original Celtic myth and magic urban fantasy series. Brynn has shared that there will be five total books in this series including Entasy. Entasy is the fast-paced prequel to the series and introduces the characters and the deep-rooted conflict. I’d highly recommend that you start the series by reading it.
This story is told from multiple points of view and it took me a few chapters to get into the groove with it. Once I did, I was in – hook, line and sinker. In hindsight, I should have realized that I was reading from different POVs as the character’s name is displayed right under the chapter number. Duh!
Also, be aware that there’s much detailed word building with a lot to take in at first. While reading, I kept wishing for a glossary of some sorts. Well, lo and behold, there’s a very useful one at the end of the book!
Entasy focuses on Kylah’s story. She is a goddess, but, when the story opens, she is unaware of her lineage because her grandmothers – Celtic goddesses, Morrigan and Brighid - erased her memories to keep her safe and sane. Kylah believes that she and her siblings are normal humans. She has a successful career as a costume designer and her brothers run Keenan’s, a thriving Irish pub in New York City. However, all might be lost when her parents’ killer finds Kylah, if she doesn’t quickly embrace her destiny.
I thought Kylah was a great heroine. My heart went out to her as her sad memories were revealed. The half Seelie and half Unseelie villain and his cohorts were twisted malovence. The Sluagh, the spirits of the restless dead, were especially yucky creepy. I loved how protective and possessive Aerric, Kaylah’s dragon phoenix mate was. Just try to imagine Aerric’s shock seeing her alive after he had thought her dead for two hundred years! Both the O’Cianain brothers were yummy. If you’d like to get an inkling of the delicious fun coming with the rest of the Nine, you can check out all the main characters on Brynn’s website.
Brynn has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I now consider all of her books to be must-reads. Entasy is an intriguing and extremely promising start to her Prophecies of the Nine series. I have already jumped into the next book, Redemption, and am happy to report that it’s mind-blowing awesome. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
In the meantime, Brynn has a stand-alone read, Falling Out Of Focus, releasing later this month. It’s about a girl who falls into a magical world inhabited by fae. You better believe I’ll be picking it up!

Lets do this review a little different shall we?
Fast Paced - CHECK! I felt like I flew through the pages of this novella.
Enticing and Alluring - CHECK! I was on the edge of my seat through every page.
Great World Building - CHECK! Brynn must have a vault of ideas for this world in her head and she put in on the page beautifully. I felt I was able to dive right into it no problem.
Character Development - CHECK!!! I couldn't help but feel with these characters through every thing they went through. Yes we met a lot of characters BUT I didn't feel lost and I felt I got just enough about each character in so few pages that I already have my favorites and want their books and their happily ever afters NOW!!! Not to mention we get a mix of supernatural species which is always fun to see.
Heat - CHECK!! Very passionate!!!
I love when authors write a prequel to a series and set it up the way Brynn did in Entasy. In only a few short pages she had me begging for more. That's talent! The very last chapter I was shaking reading it, it left me stunned in the most enchanting way that I had to start the next book that very second.
I can see this series going for the long haul and that has me jumping for joy and screaming MORE!!!
