Doon by Lorie Langdon & Carey Corp ~ Review

Doon (Doon, #1)


When Veronica's best friend, Kenna, offers her the opportunity to leave her troubles behind for the rolling hills and green glens of Scotland, Veronica doesn't need much convincing. 
There is a mysterious young man, who has been following Veronica and pops up again in Scotland, she doesn't know whether he is real or a figment of her imagination.
As she and Kenna settle into Scotland they stumble upon a strange set of rings and a strange letter from Kenna's great aunt. Suddenly they are swept into a living fairy-tale, with everything they could ever desire, but the world they have entered is as deceptive as it is magical...

I wasn't sure what to think of this book at first, yet it turned out to be fairly enjoyable, though it was nothing like the kind of books I tend to be drawn to, it caught my attention from the beginning and managed to hold it pretty much the whole way through.

Veronica and Kenna are portrayed to be typical teenagers, who talked about boys, how good-looking they were, and testing the limits in physical relationships, etc. So I wouldn't recommend this book for those much younger than 14-15.

I liked the writing style of this book, because it really drew me in and made me want to keep reading even though this isn't at all what I normally would read.

Overall, this was an great quick read, that was sort of like a fantasy, chick-flick romance kind of book, set in a Scottish wonderland. Veronica and Kenna were both very well developed and I loved how different they were, yet they were perfect as best friends. Not a typical read for me, but it was entertaining.
