    1. Kerry says:

      A real page turner of a book about a girl with magical powers, her life, friends, love & secrets waiting to be unearthed. A love story fraught with difficulties and danger. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to finding out what the next book in the series has in store.I wanted to give this book 3.5 stars but my app doesn't let me give 1/2 stars.

    2. B says:

      Couldn't put it down! Loved the fantasy of it all! Can't wait for the second part

    3. The Word Nerd Reviews says:

      A wonderful beginning to what promises to be a compelling new series.I found it hard to believe that this was Leigh Ann Edwards’ debut novel. It was just so well written and polished it seemed to come from a much more experienced writer.Other reviews have criticised this book for its lack of action. Yes, action wise there isn’t much until the last chapter. However, to me, this book serves as an introduction to the world and the characters that live in it. This book is dedicated to character [...]

    4. Clare O'Beara says:

      Take care as this would appear to be a book for YA fantasy readers, but it contains much adult activity and discussion. Set during the 1500s in Ireland, the book doesn't actually show us the farriery trade but follows a herb-witch girl. She lives on the outskirts of a wealthy family's community, like many others providing services, and the priest and men who would rather control women keep a sharp eye on her activities. When a young son of the landowner takes a romantic fancy, the trouble is tha [...]

    5. Al *the serial series skipper* says:

      ***I received this book courtesy of Netgallery in exchange for an honest review***An example of a book with no direction.Nothing happens in the book except self reflection and overly descriptive description and repetition. We know what Alaina thinks, what Killian thins, what the maid think, what the chieftain thinks, we know how many children the cook has, what kind of weapon the captain's son uses, things that in no way contribute to the story. We know Alaina grows herbs, just incase we forget, [...]

    6. Kerry Croucier says:

      The first book in the Irish Witch series introduces us to Alainn McCreary and Killian O'Brien. Young Killian is near death when 7-year-old Alainn heals him, thus beginning a lifelong friendship between the two, of different classes, in 16th Century Ireland. Alainn is afforded many opportunities that others in her station don't have. She also has beauty and magical abilities, that her mentor counsels her to hide. Given opportunities that others don't have, she grows up side-by-side with Killian a [...]

      Killian O'Brien is near death. He doesn't want to live. Not after the death of his family. When he meets the witch child, Alainn McCreary, she heals him. She too is alone abandoned by her parents. As they grow up they form a bond and fall in love, but they have no future. He is the nephew of the laird and a man of substance and she is a servant and the farrier's daughter. I liked Alainn. She's feisty and fierce in her opinions of the male dominated world she lives in. The magic that she possesse [...]

    8. Shari says:

      The Farrier's Daughter, book one of the Irish Witch series is a page turner. Loved the characters of Alainn and Killian, they have known each other for years, now they have fallen in love. Alainn is a very strong willed witch that is not afraid to stand up for herself. Loved the romance and the magic. Wonderful history and description that will keep you entertained.This is a cliffhanger, so get ready to read the next book in the series. This is not my typical read but so happy that I read out of [...]

    9. Melody Kaban says:

      Awesome book. I highly recommend this book. Romance, witchcraft, and excellent writing. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

      The debut of a new magical fantasy series set in sixteenth century Ireland featuring witches, a swoony hero, an evil curse and fairies!“He snorted. "He fears you? Why ever would he fear a small girl like you, and his own daughter?"She napped her eyes back up and whispered, "Because, I know of magic."Killian smirked. "Of course you know of magic, everyone knows of magic. We live in Ireland. Everyone knows of fairies and druids, and the like. Magic cannot be disputed, even if the priests do not [...]

    12. Kelsey Karin says:

      **There will be spoilers.** Stop now if you want some ignorance of plot. Some I have approporiately hidden behind spoiler tags, others I couldn't avoid talking about in my discussion.Based on the summary, I thought this would be a great book for me. I was looking for some celtic historical fiction with magic thrown in, and thats what the description promised.What I got, felt like a rough draft of a not fully thought out story. There were elements strewn about that I liked in concept, but the exe [...]

    13. C.A. Pack says:

      Love, heartbreak, magic, and evil people in powerful places all combine for an entertaining read.

      Reviewed at Keeper BookshelfStep back in time with The Farrier’s Daughter to the reign of King Henry, to magic and witchcraft and two young people who will matter so much to each other as they grow up during very turbulent times. In a time period where the division between commoner and royalty was strictly drawn, the lives of Alainn and Killian seem to be forever intertwined in one fashion or another. Alainn is a young, learning healer (and a witch), and when she saves the life of the chieftai [...]

    15. Mel T says:

      I have always enjoyed the fantasy/paranormal romance genre and this book doesn't disappoint. In the first 2 chapters, Leigh Ann Edwards sets the stage for the deep friendship that develops between her heroine, Alainn McCreary and hero Killian O'Brien as children when she uses her powers to help him regain the will to live after having lost his family in battle. Ten years later, both are grown; their years of friendship develop into love. Their feelings for each other deepen even as they know tha [...]

    16. Elisabeth says:

      The Farrier's Daughter by Leigh Ann Edwards is a fantasy romance story. The Farrier's Daughter is book one in The Irish Witch Series and is not a stand alone book. Book two, The Witch's Daughter takes of where The Farrier's Daughter ends. So if you don´t like "cliff hangers" or this type of stories where they simply continues from book, to book, don´t begin on this series. But, if you on the other hand love fantasy romance stories this one is a really good one. It´s well written, flows of the [...]

    17. Shelagh says:

      The first in Leigh Ann Edwards' Irish Witch trilogy, The Farrier's Daughter offers a fascinating insight into sixteenth century Ireland, while the twist of magic adds charm to this intriguing story. The tale begins with seven year-old Alainn healing twelve year-old Killian and giving him a reason to live when he has lost the will to do so. As the story progresses their love for each other grows, though their different stations in life make this unlikely.Although I don't normally read fantasy, I [...]

    18. Christine says:

      It took me a bit to get into this story but once I did, I could not put it down. Alainn is a healer but maybe better known as a witch for all the powers she uses and ones she has yet to learn about. Growing up in a time when women were to be quiet, and do whatever their husbands or other men wish, has not gone over well with Alainn. She has short patience, a sharp tongue and strong feelings. I was sad when the story ended but I look forward to reading the next one in the series.I received a free [...]

    19. Jean says:

      I typically don't read much fantasy romance, but I really enjoyed this story. The characters were all well written and I really loved our heroine. The story continues in the next book of the series, so if you really don't like unresolved issues, you may want to have the next book(s) available before you start this one.There are some pretty detestible characters in the story, but the hero and heroine are very likable - along with the cook and healer.

    20. Mary says:

      This book was full of magic, romance, danger and the storyline was great. Loved it.

    21. Laureen says:

      Really enjoyed the book .n't wait for the next one

    22. Judy Reardigan says:

      Great fun book written by a lady in Edmonton! I'll have to get the rest of the series.

    23. Darlene-Jody Parsons says:

      Love love love it!!

    24. Paula says:

      The Farrier's Daughter by Leigh-Ann Edwards is the debut book by this rising star writer. Ms. Edwards dedicates this book to two strong women in her life, of course so I expected that the main character, Aliann would be strong. What I didn’t expected was to fall so in love with this character while she was still a young child. The opening scene just between Aliann and Killian simply stole my heart and sealed support for these two not matter what else happened. What else I didn’t expect was h [...]

      I received this book from net galley for an honest review. Thank you!!This novel was an enjoyable and quick read. It brings together a time during King Henry's reign when he debates about leaving the Catholic church, romance, and magic. The author brings the plot together very well and has very interesting characters. It shows the distance between "royalty" and commoners, men and women.Alainn McCreary is the farrier's daughter, who was given to Morag to raise in the village since her parents did [...]

      I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.The Farrier's Daughter is the first book in the Irish Witch series. It follows the story of Alainn, a beautiful, young herb witch to a very powerful clan who was cursed. Furthermore, Alainn's relationship with Killian, a member of said clan, starts to evolve from friendship to forbidden love. Alainn's powers begin to grow and she discovers her magical heritage and she hopes she can use these powe [...]

    27. L. Layale says:

      This was a freely given netgalley review.So what interested me in this title to begin with was the fact that it was 16th century Ireland. To me the root of traditional and stereotypical paganism from the old world. I loved the concept of this old magic. There seemed to be some minute errors that brought me out of the setting some language and whatnot. I really enjoyed the first half of it. When Alainn grew up though her maturity seemed forced and therefore not very believable. I almost wish that [...]

    28. J Guzman says:

      I received a free copy for an honest review.I really wanted to love this book, but just didn't happen. I did like the characters, but somehow they all seemed a bit underdeveloped. I wish I could put my feelings into words more eloquently but while I got senses of the personality traits of the protagonist and her supporting characters, they all got by on vague descriptions.Furthermore, the rise toward the conflict was stop and start. Just as the story seemed to build toward the climax you would e [...]

    29. Ruby says:

      Commoner, healer in training, witch who hasn't discovered her powers yet, all of these can describe Alainn McCreary as well as fallen in love with Killian O' Brien, the chieftain's eldest son. However, that is not her place, and he is definitely a few stations about her. Will love and her new found powers help the odds? And will they find the reason behind the curse on his family?If you enjoy Irish stories, the start of the series will take you by surprise. Well written with delightfully fun cha [...]

    30. Heather Countryman says:

      I have mixed feelings about this. The story was pretty good, the writing wasOK. I don't mind sex in books, but the amount of times she narrowly escaped rape was excessive. It felt like information and instances were constantly repeated to an annoying degree. It was a little slow and didn't feel like there was much of a direction. The ending felt anti-climantic. Maybe this book just wasn't for me.
