Abel Casey is just an ordinary boy. He goes to school and comes home to take care of his mother and sister while his father is at work. There’s nothing out of the norm that would signal him to be more than what he already is. Yet when Prudence Phelan shows up on the scene, his entire world is thrown into limbo.

Legend has it that a Great Wolf will some day be born to rule over all the wolf clans. A leader with extraordinary abilities. Abel has a hard time accepting such claims, even when presented with proof that he’s the one Pru’s clan has been waiting for. When Pru tells Abel that he must die in order to protect his family, he balks at the idea. He has no wish to cause his family any further heartache.

When his sister starts exhibiting some weird behaviors, Abel realizes that he’s way in over his head. Werewolves do exist, as do vampires. And apparently one has become fixated upon his sister in hopes of garnering the needed information that would lead him to destroy the Great Wolf.

As his attraction for the lovely Pru grows with every day of training, he comes to realize that she’s way out of his league. She’s set her sights on Oakley and there’s nothing that he can do to change her mind. Fighting against his feelings for her, he throws himself into his training while trying to figure out a way to save his sister and thus fulfilling the demands that have been thrown upon his shoulders – demands that could very well be his undoing should he take one wrong step.

While this book has a very good premise and is quite promising, the one thing that kept me from truly enjoying its potential was the book’s punctuation. Mind you, this isn’t a bad review – far from it. I just think that if the editor had taken time to fully immerse him/herself in fixing the punctuation/sentence structures throughout the book, it would have made the book’s message more clear and concise.

TLOK Cover Devyn has written a story that truly has potential. I do wish that she’d expanded just a little further on story of the Legacy of Kilkenny. To provide an even further and very much in-depth back story of how the clan truly came to be. I honestly liked what I read and I wish the author very well in her future endeavors.


Synopsis: Ireland has many secrets… this is one of them.

After an incredibly boring summer, Abel Casey was looking forward to his junior year at Piedsville High School in his little town outside of Oklahoma City. But once he sees Pru Phelan, the gorgeous girl with the shiny red hair and piercing grey eyes he knows he is in for trouble. Abel’s boring little life is about to come to an end if Pru has her way. The stunning Pru has a secret to share with Abe, one that will change his life forever. Up until recently werewolf packs have been looking for the Great Wolf, a wolf of legend handed down over hundreds of years from Kilkenny Ireland. Her secret is she is a werewolf, and her secret is now his too. Abel learns that all the tales of werewolves and vampires is real and he is the wolf they have been searching for. To protect his destiny and his family the pack begins training him for his first shift, without a hold on to his humanity can cause him to shift to a werewolf and never return to his human form.

Abel is torn between the family he has grown up with and the pack that claims he is the one of Celtic lore. Pru’s mentor and bodyguard Oakley is the one that her heart craves but she fears he has feelings for her friend Josie. Pru’s father the alpha wants her to stay focused on her assignment and forbids the two from becoming lovers and he threatens to remove Oakley from the pack if Pru can’t stay focused. Everything is going as planned until Abel’s sassy and moody sister Allie starts hanging out with an aggravating vampire Arien. Arien knows the pack’s secret and plans to expose them if he doesn’t get his way. This story of friendship, family, love and betrayal will leave the reader breathless and someone dead.

The Legacy of Kilkenny an incredible journey for these young adults. The reader will be drawn into this romantic yet invigorating story of friends and lovers. The prophecy has been stated, now it will be lived.

Devyn PictureAbout the Author:

My name is Stefanie Dawson but you might know me better as Devyn Dawson. I decided to use a pen name since there is a famous Stephenie that writes the same genre. I didn’t want to be “oh, you’re not THAT Stephenie” – sad but true. The characters in my head have been bugging me to be heard for a few years, after a big kick in the butt from a doctor telling me my eyesight was in danger; I flipped out. I quit my real job making real money and wrote like a lunatic to bring my characters to life. My husband and son survived on ‘man food’ for a year and allowed me to chase this dream. I have two children that aren’t so little – my lovely daughter is 21 and my son is 17. They grow up fast! I’ll never grow up as long as the characters want to be written about. I am proud to say that my eyes are doing fine and I’m eternally grateful to everyone that has read The Legacy of Kilkenny. It is incredibly wonderful when someone emails me to tell me how much they loved my book. I save every email so I can look at them when I want to give up. Thank you to all my Lovies!

My current projects are going very well and should be finished soon. The second book to The Legacy of Kilkenny is Malevolence and will be released at the end of November 2011. I’ve received a lot of emails asking to know more about Allie, Abel’s sister. Allie is a character in TLOK, and her journal that documents her journey as she dates a vampire will be released October 2011 as a novella. Allie is an unstable girl once vampire venom runs through her veins; her journal will give the reader an inside view to her life. The title of the novella is The Seduction.

Again, thank you!
