After reading this book I have one word for you, “Astounding”!!!
This book is a continuation of the first book in the Legend Series “Spellbound”, and brings us back to the Fae Realm and the aftermath that was caused by the betrayal of the Seelie Fae by Gaisioch. Now in the Dark Realm, Gaisioch is planning to unleash the Dark Fae, specifically the Unseelie Fae to wreck havoc on Humans. This causes a lot of trouble for the Faery / Human Realms and the Seelie Fae are determined to end Gaisioch’s plan, no matter what it takes.
Willow Lang, is our heroine in this story and a real spitfire. She has struggled with her heritage (half Fae and half Human), and has a hard time determining which world she belongs in. After an incident in Tir (Fairy Realm) as a teenager Willow decides that she no longer wants to acknowledge her Fae side, and chooses instead to live as a Human. Then years later, Willow is offered a job working for Squire Shayne Bantry at his home in Ireland, and everything changes. She is re-acquainted with Royal Fae Prince, Breslyn, whom she fondly remembers from her time spent in Tir with her parents, as a child. He was the only one that didn’t make her feel like she didn’t belong, and she begins to wonder if he remembers her. Breslyn, as we have come to expect, takes an interest in his “Shee Willow” and asks for her help to keep an eye on her boss, Squire Shane Bantry.
Squire Shayne Bantry, is a former Druid high priest, that has turned his back on his duties to protect the Fae and more importantly the Queen. Shayne believes he was betrayed by the Fae and turns to a darker side, while he tries to find a way out of the situation he was placed in. Shayne also finds himself attracted to Willow, which he refuses to give into, because he is sure that he can’t give her what she needs. However, he starts getting jealous when he sees Willow with Breslyn and realizes how much time they are spending together. Does Shayne want her to be his, or does he just want to keep her away from Breslyn?
The story that unfolds between these characters is filled with plot twists, some that I didn’t even see coming. It also has lots of action, suspense, romance, intrigue, and is one HOT read. I was hooked from the beginning and was unable to put it down. I absolutely love this series and found myself immediately purchasing the next book “Trapped – Legend” in the series, so that I could continue the story. I can already tell this Legend series is going to be on my re-read list for many years to come!!!

Shee Willow by Claudy Conn
Legend Series book 2
Willow Lang was half human and half Fae and never quite fitting into either world. She was hired to go to Ireland and restore some old portraits for Squire Shayne Bantry and her boring life soon became full of interesting twists and turns. She had a handsome Fae prince paying attention to her, a mysterious gypsy and the hot and cold Shayne Bantry. None seemed to offer her the true love she was in search of though. Yet through it all she did learn to accept the part of her that was Fae, as she had always chosen to live human.
Shayne was a Druid priest, was. Something had happened that turned him against what he was born and bred to be. And he hated the very Fae that he was suppose to help protect. All his past ancestors had found their true loves but because of something that happened a year ago he didn’t dare ever give his heart away. If only he could keep his mind from going to the image of his beautiful new employee.
Claudy Conn brings this series to life with her unique characters. Some were introduced in Spellbound, the first Legend book, Prince Breslyn and Princess Ete and Queen Aaibhe, along with the Sluagh. Gaiscioch is continuing to try and find a way to escape the Dark Realm with an army of soulless Unseelie’s. As the impending war draws closer the humans go on about their lives, never knowing of their protectors. Each book builds a bit to things happening behind the scenes but they do not leave you hanging as far as the main romances. Looking forward to Trapped, book 3 in this legend series.

Willow Lang is hired by Squire Shayne to restore his paintings, she is attracted to him immediately. Willow is half fae half human seer. She steers clear of all things fae due to bad experiences as a halfling child. Her father Desmond is missing, she is fighting monsters, finding relics, dealing with advances from men, and trying to figure out who she can trust. It seems like everyone she comes in contact with has secrets. She doesn't know who to trust. On top of all of that, an evil seelie fae, trapped in unseelie is trying to open a portal to escape and release all the evil unseelie into the human realm. Will she find someone to trust in, as well as helping the seelie, or will she turn her back on all of it. Great story, very interesting characters, several different love angles, and an all around good read.

Something I've noticed read Claudy Conn's books are that they slowly get to the plot, but once you get far enough in they are WOW! *Grins* My favorite guy so far in this series finally figured out his problems. :)
So Shayne Bantry has lot's of problems. We just don't get to know them until close to the end. From rather or not he's evil or good, or just lost. We learn he is being a problem, not agreeing with the queen causing problems. Overall I liked him if you can't tell I wrote many lines. Willow is explained pretty easy and quick to understand. Her father is missing and she wants to find him at one point, she meets a mysterious winged fey, and has talking mask problems. Have I suck you in yet?
If you love fae books that have some romance in them, then this is a book for you to check out.
Would I read the next book? Yup! :)

It is official! I am addicted to this series! It has been a long time since I have found a fae series I can actually immerse myself in and with this one, I have jumped in with both feet. I have read two in three days. I can not help myself. They are that good. While this one had some carry over characters and a continuing story arc from Spellbound - Legend, it also introduces a whole cast of new characters. Once again, I felt like I really understood these character thanks to the amazing voice the author uses in her writing. This is not a series where we see the same couples coming together, facing tragedies and adversity and then after four or five books, finally coming together. That made me happy :). I felt like the main story arc of good vs evil that began in the first book made some nice progression and left me wanting to know what was next. I enjoyed the love stories, especially that of the Ete. It was nice to see her grow into a more central character in this book. I will, without a doubt, be reading the next book ASAP. I am so glad I listened to my friend and started reading this author/series.
