Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Emily Adams has special powers she doesn't want, a spiteful aunt she can't escape, and a primeval legacy she knows nothing about. But when an otherworldly being materializes, Emily discovers the true purpose of her magical blood and of the danger that threatens to annihilate her world.
Dormant for over a thousand years, an ancient evil has arisen. This time, it will destroy anyone - or anything - that stands in its way.
With her two best friends by her side, Emily risks everything and embarks on a dangerous journey to Ireland and beyond, where she unlocks the secrets of her Celtic ancestors. As the hour of world annihilation draws near, the fate of her friends, her family, and her world lies in her hands.
Can a teenage girl without hero credentials save the world? And will Emily find the courage to face her true self in Emily's House?

Enjoyable Story for Young and Old Listeners!

Narration - Chloe Golden - Pretty Good!
When it started, I wasn't too sure about it, but as the book went along, her voice was really perfect for this title - and her voice for Madame Wong Crr-ack-ed me up! Loved it!

The book itself is cute. I would say that this is geared more towards young readers, but I still enjoyed it. It's a little paranormal, magic-y tale with three 14 year old kids heading on a quest that takes them to Ireland. It's a little hard to believe three kids could get themselves to Europe without adult assistance/supervision, but hey, it's fiction, so I'll roll with it.

Emily comes to find out she's from a long line of special people that have some pretty impressive powers and a good part of her quest is learning what her abilities are and how to control them. This part was a throw back to Karate Kid! Only instead of paint the fence, it was chop the wood! There's a lot of action and suspense and a whole lot of details in this fantasy world and I enjoyed it. Definitely want to listen to the next in the series.
