When your dreams become reality, being cursed can be a real nightmare.

Like a punch in the face, eighteen-year-old Maeve O’Malley’s visions knock her off her path. The Pirate Queen stalking Maeve in her dreams killed her mother years ago, and now, the villain is coming for her. Maeve’s decision to ditch Boston College takes everyone by surprise as she packs her bags, leaves America, and heads to the west coast of Ireland to chase her dreams—and end them.

Maeve uncovers an ancient family curse that refuses to remain silent until she accepts her predestined role in what many thought was only a legend. Her Irish history professor—a man she shouldn’t be falling for—is the only person who understands the origins of her torment.

Maeve’s journey becomes a medieval treasure hunt through Ireland’s castles and ruins as she tracks the wrathful Pirate Queen who has her marked for vengeance.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 20, 2017 – McMahon s excellent debut makes a contemporary paranormal mystery feel cozy and romantic. Recent high school graduate Maeve O Malley isn t looking forward to entering Boston College. Instead, she feels strongly compelled to travel to her family s native Ireland in the hopes of getting some answers as to why she experiences confusing and scary waking dreams. Against family objections, she settles into classes at the National University of Ireland in Galway, where she senses she s closer than ever before to uncovering why a long-dead pirate queen is haunting her and members of her family. Maeve also needs to decide whom to trust: a mysterious guitar player, Rory, who ought to be a modern-day laird, or her college instructor, Paul, whom she keeps coincidentally meeting while exploring Irish ruins. The slowly unfurling romance doesn t go in obvious directions, which adds to the story s allure. Teen and adult readers alike will be clamoring for the sequel, as Maeve has much to learn of her family s history.

Customer Reviews

What an adventure!

I really enjoyed this story. At first what drew me to this book was it's setting. I love reading books that are based in Ireland or feature characters from there.
I quickly became attached to the heroine of the story, Maeve Grace O'Malley. She's a strong character that even through her fears fights to find out what is causing these "awake dreams" or visions that she had been having since she was a child. Her journey leads her on an adventure to Ireland to find out about her roots. Along the way she makes some wonderful new friends and maybe a few enemies. I found myself drawn into the story like I was apart of the adventure. Mrs. McMahon writes a wonderful story with intriguing characters and vivid detail. I can not wait to read her second book and find out what happens next for Maeve and friends.
I was given an arc copy in exchange for voluntarily leaving an honest review.
