Product Description

Veronica might just be going crazy when she keeps seeing the same mysterious boy pop up everywhere----and she is the only one that can see him. When McKenna invites Veronica to go to Scotland, she jumps at the chance to get away. But strange things start happening, beginning with 2 strange rings and a note of instructions from McKenna's aunt.

The girls follow the directions and find themselves transported into a strange land, Doon, that seems like a fairy-tale with a handsome prince that only has eyes for McKenna and a boy who looks exactly like the mystery boy Veronica kept seeing. But not everything is as it seems in Doon, and time is running out . . . will the girls be trapped forever?

Publisher's Description

Veronica doesn’t think she’s going crazy. But why can’t anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes?

When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months. But the Scottish countryside holds other plans. Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna’s great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation.

Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica’s daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they’ve longed for… or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

    Indulgent YA Fantasy set in Scottish Realm

    An indulgent fantasy set in a mythical Scottish land of Doon, this novel is a lovely treat for YA readers who wish to step out of this world and into a land where soulmates exist and evil comes in the form of witches and enchantments. Two typical teens, Vee and Kenna are on holiday in Scotland. Vee is a cheerleader with a terrible home life, including a pervy almost step-father and a mother with a drinking problem. Kenna has a stable home life with her indulgent father, but struggles to find her place in school, choosing to escape into the fantasy of the theater and dreaming of being on Broadway. The two characters take turns narrating and seem to mirror the strong friendship of the two authors, who claim sometimes they share a brain.

    The writing is excellent and I adored the relationships and moments shared in this book between the main characters. The romance in the book focuses on the idea in Doon of a "Calling" where soulmates have dreams of each other. Kenna and Vee are forced to decide what they are willing to sacrifice for love.

    Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait to devour the next few in the world of Doon. I'd recommend for YA readers, especially those who enjoy fantasy, but not limited to those who enjoy high fantasy, as this book is definitely not too "out there".

    Five out of five stars! I was totally hooked from page one. This series, especially Forever Doon, has got to be my favorite!!! I literally couldn't put these books down once I had started them. I definately recommend this awesome book series to anyone who loves action, danger, and of course musicals!

    ...the only thing though, is once you've read Doon, you'll wish it was real. I know I did!

    Deliciously romantical! Seriously swooning over this one. If you love the musical, Brigadoon, you'll be be over the moon with this exploration of the magical realm. Danger and action and handsome highlanders all nobly protective and weak-in-the-knees charm. Jamie and Duncan are an interesting mesh of old-fashioned modern. And they've met their match with these 21st century girls. Feisty and stubborn and inexplicably drawn to the princes. But there's evil afoot and it begins to look like there is no such thing as happily ever after. That doesn't mean there aren't any number of toe-curling scenes,though. I had heart palpitations the whole read through.

    A brilliant modern-day fairy tale with a bit of a cliffie that has me hightailing it to my library for book two...and three. Look for them in future Retro Saturday giveaways.

    So, on Black Friday in 2013, I went shopping--mostly for books since I'm a major book-a-holic. I had a pretty specific list of books I wanted to buy. But when I picked up Doon, just out of curiosity, and read the back cover, I was hooked! It was the only book I bought that day that I hadn't even heard of before.

    Isn't the cover just gorgeous! It has fairytale written all over it! And I LOVE fairytales!

    Anyway, here is what the back cover says:

    Vee's soft whisper tickled against my ear. "Are we were I think we are?"

    What moments ago seemed like a fairy tale now seemed impossibly and unsettlingly real. Yet it couldn't be true. My entire body began to tremble. Keeping my eyes fixed on the castle in the distance, I whispered back, "I seriously hope not."

    Don't you see why I was hooked? It sounds like they go to another world!

    Anyway, I just finished reading it, and, oh, it is good! I loved the romance (as completely unrealistic as it is)! There were some parts where I wished there was more action, but overall, it did not disappoint me.

    And the end? It was amazing--and very frustrating! It was one of those books where I just went "Gah! How can you possibly end there, after that new and terrible revelation?" It was one of those times when someone makes a decision, with no possible way to reverse it, then reveals it was a completely and utterly WRONG decision! I suspected it all along, but then to have her do it anyway? Gah!

    However, does that mean there's a new book coming in which the decision is somehow rectified?

    Also, there was a second part to the ending that was perfect and amazing! One character finally got her true love, and fulfilled her destiny! Now, I don't believe in destiny, but I still loved that half of the ending!

    I hope I didn't give away too much of the ending! I loved the book, and I don't think any of you should not read it just because of that one part that frustrated me.

    This review was written for #1: Doon.
    The Synopsis:

    "Veronica doesn't think she's going crazy. But why can't anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes?

    When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months. But the Scottish countryside holds other plans. Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna's great aunt-and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation.

    Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica's daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they've longed for_ or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare."

    My Review:

    I was very pleased with this book. It had me interested from the very first page to the very last. I loved the world of Doon and how it was described, filled with pleasures, people of good nature, and loving landscapes. But yet Doon also had it's evil to be defeated (reminding me of Narnia..).

    Doon also had great morals, the Protector of Doon was a representation of God while the witch was the devil, using ordinary things and people to bring the world to destruction. I loved that self-sacrifice and true love were the main morals presented in this book. Self-sacrifice defeats pride, while true love defeats hatred (again, reminding me of Narnia).

    The things that cause me to put the age limit at at least 13 years old would be, the main characters, Veronica and Mackenna, have graduated high school and are very best friends, resulting in a lot of "girl talk"_.. past boyfriends, boys' clothes, boys' hair, boys' personalities, really just boys in general_.. also lots of kissing. There were a few cuss words here and there, but nothing absolutely terrible.

    Aside from the things above, this was a very good book and I recommend it to my friends!
