Review: The Oathing Stone

31351222 The Oathing Stone by J.Z.N. McCauley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Two of The Rituals Trilogy—Fire magic wraps around her bones and strengthens them, but if the fire touches another, it does more than burn.

After a year blissfully hidden together in a small village on Ireland’s lush green, Catherine and Bowen are ready to tie the knot. The joining of an ancient druid doctor and a woman blessed with druid magic from the sacred oak tree calls for nothing less than a traditional Celtic ceremony. For this, to connect them to their ancestors and the sacred place where they marry, a key item must be chosen for the ritual, the oathing stone.

Their need for discretion allows for only a gathering of Catherine’s closest friends and family. But after the couple's first night together, strange and sudden events unfold. Blood mingles with fire, and Catherine’s magic becomes unstable.

Meanwhile, the mysterious Faerie Kings send a Fae spy to witness Catherine’s magic which disrupts not only her life but her best friend Bella’s when she becomes his sudden obsession. Just after Bella goes missing, it is up to Catherine to get her back, but it is only the beginning of their problems as she finds they’re embroiled in the middle of a Faerie civil war.

*I received a copy from the author for review. This does not affect my review.*

Even better than the first! Just as action packed, with more at stake than ever before! I loved this one from cover to cover. When Catherine marries Bowen, the love of her life, the world around them suddenly explodes with chaos. The Fae want something that was stolen from them, Bowen is dying, and the King of the Fae has a sudden interest in Bella, Catherine's best friend. I sped through this one, the fast pace is perfect for this story, and the plot is fun and exciting.
