Bridger by Megan Curd

Saturday, August 20, 2011
Ashlyn McVean doesn't believe in fairy tales. That is, until Ashlyn is thrown into the crosshairs of grudges her grandmother created long ago. After finding out she is one of two people able to cross between faerie realms, Ashlyn is faced with trying to understand her abilities, along with navigating a new relationship with her boyfriend, Liam. As if being on a centuries old hit list and dealing with crazed pixies isn't enough, her new abilities mean trouble for Liam. Knowing her new life puts everyone she loves in danger, Ashlyn must decide what's most important in her life between friends, family, love, and ultimately, realms.

Goodreads Summary

Losing your father a week before Christmas would ruin any normal person's holiday. Ashlyn McVean decides to honor her father's memory by taking the trip her father always dreamed of taking with her, a tour of Ireland and a meet up with his extended family. On this trip, she finds out that she isn't human and neither is her Grandmother, Memaw. In addition to mythical creatures and adventure, a love interest adds spice to this story.

The heroine, Ashlyn, has a spicy, practical personality. She's loyal to her family and friends. Her willingness to protect them shows her loving heart, and is probably her best quality.

Supporting characters, Liam, Reese, and Memaw are all admirable and brave. Liam is Ashlyn’s love interest, he is sworn to protect her. Any injuries she receives, he experiences as well. They are bound to each other by ancient magic. Reese is Ashlyn’s best friend, he always believes in her. He supports her and is able to lift her spirits no matter what. Memaw trains and aids Ashlyn, helping her learn her talents and skills. She saves Ashlyn from Jamie and Ankou. Jamie is a Changeling, a dark creature who kidnaps humans and makes them slaves. Ankou is her master who has a grudge against Memaw.

This story is never dull.  The events are unusual and fast-paced, the storyline is unique.  The added quality of mythology adds much to the already interesting story.

Bridger is meant for teen girls or young adult women. The romance and action in it is distinctly for females. The themes in it lend themselves toward a female audience.
