Call of the Morrigu by Christy Nicholas [No Spoilers]

[Disclaimer: I received an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book in exchange for an honest review. I purchased the item to support the author.]

All righty then, I should also mention that I am friends with Christy Nicholas and that I have a tendency to enjoy her stories. I wanted to enjoy this story, I wanted to finish this story. I did neither, and I blame myself.

Call of the Morrigu by Christy Nicholas is funny, poignant, well-written, engaging, and curiosity-inducing. It blends current societal problems with those of the past, and presents it all simultaneously in a blunt and humourous, somehow innocent and a teensy bit sultry package. That of the character "Morrigan" in the story itself. And yet, with all that going for it, I, me, myself, did not enjoy it.

I'm pretty sure it's a taste thing, and not something I can help about myself. Certainly not something Christy Nicholas needs to change about her books or writing. If you are at all familiar with her works so far, you'll have noticed the theme of going backwards in time from sequel to sequel, and becoming more magical, too.

I'm referencing the Druid's Brooch Trilogy specifically here, and I will say that if those stories even piqued your interest, this one will do right by you. Myself, I'm looking forward to the next series Christy Nicholas is working on and hoping it fulfils my needs more than Call of the Morrigu did.

I've said it in the past, and I'll say it again. Christy Nicholas is an author with a career worth watching!
