Go back in time, fifty years before the events of New York Times bestselling author P.C. Cast's Partholon books...Something isn't right at Guardian Castle, and Aine can't figure out what. As Healer, she's supposed to be making things better, but there's a darkness that can't be brightened. And then Aine finds an injured Fomorian--winged, dark, blood-thirsty and inherently evil. Or is he? Because there's something about Tegan that Aine can't resist...and once they've shared blood, Aine realizes that everything she's always believed is going to be cast aside....


I read the Divine Series years ago and loved it! Divine Beginnings has been sitting on my e-read for over a year, honestly I totally forgot it was a novella. This novella is the prequel to the Cast's Partholon series and it explains how the war started. I really enjoyed  Aine and Tegan's story! I know this is a novella but I was sad that it was over so quick, I wanted to know more about their lives together! 

If you have read anything else by P.C. Cast, you know how good she is at making a very vivid world. I was once again transported to the magical Kingdom of Partholon. Even though it time it wasn't nearly as vivacious as in the series, I had no problem seeing the world Tegan and Aine loved so much that they were willing to risk their relationship to save it. 

I had almost forgotten that this was series was where I remember The Goddess from. Just like in the House of Night series, The Goddess is such a power being in Partholon. I love how she manifest herself when she is most needed and how Aine puts her full trust in her and follows that down a path that is completely against everything she has come to know. 

I might have to go back and read The Partholon series again! Just so I can tell you guys exactly what I loved about it! 


4/5




I read this as part of the Clean Out your E-Reader Challenge, which I am horribly behind in... don't judge me :)
