Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: The Wise One by K.T. Anglehart @kt_anglehart @XpressoTours

The Wise One
K.T. Anglehart
(The Scottish Scrolls, #1)
Publication date: October 28th 2020
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Mckenna’s never thought much of her nightmares, but on her seventeenth birthday, a vivid dream of burning at the stake awakens her dormant abilities, thrusting her into a world where faeries are real, spirits hold a grudge, and a High Priestess obsessed with a 16th-century prophecy is tracking her every move.

Now, her overprotective dads, Seán and Andre, are forced to tell her the truth—they know who her birth mother is, and her life is not the surrogate story she’s always been told. Abigail, Mckenna’s mom, is some sort of mystic, and Mckenna a Wise One.

Whatever the hell that means.

With the help of a persistent little wren and company of a newfound friend, Mckenna journeys to Ireland in search of her mother and real answers. Along the way, she learns to harness her innate magic and trust her intuition, as best she can anyway—Cillian, a kind and passionate delegate who crosses her path, is proving much harder to read.

Only her mother could truly help her halt her ill fate and prepare her for what’s to come . . . before she gives in to the darkness she knows is buried deep within.

My Review:

Seventeen-year-old Mckenna has always known that she was different. She doesn’t fit in at school. No one likes her and she is always being bullied by someone. One day Mckenna wakes from a nightmare of being burned at the stake. She knows right away that something powerful has been awoken in her.

Mckenna needs answers as to who or what she is and the only way she is going to get those answers is from her birth mother whom she has never met. Mckenna has two dads, Seán and Andre. Her dads have been keeping secrets from her. They know who her mother is.

If Mckenna is going to learn about what is happening to her then she needs to find her mother, Abigail, who is some sort of mystic. Mckenna has found out she is a Wise One but what that is she has no idea. Mckenna and her new friend, Nissa from school set out together to find her mother. Mckenna has learned that her mother may be in Ireland.

Mckenna and Nissa set out on a journey to find her mother and along the way she finds people that teaches her how to use her magic and to become stronger. They will face difficult challenges along the way as well.

The Wise One is what is known as a slow burn with lots of suspense to hold your interest and keep the pages turning. The Wise One is filled with magic and witches, two of my most favorite things in a book. I enjoyed following Mckenna and Nissa on their journey and can’t wait to see what lays ahead for them in the next installment of The Scottish Scrolls.

The Wise One would be a great book for young adult and fantasy lovers. Now it is time to one-click your copy of The Wise One today to begin this epic fantasy adventure into the world of magic!
