'Is the old man really who he says he is? And is he telling Sersha the truth about where she is truly from?'

A mysterious old man kidnaps Sersha, a young, headstrong, Irish girl, from the streets of Galway and tries to convince her that her life's destiny is tied to a mysterious cave in the Scottish Highlands. But with half of the Irish criminal underworld violently on their trail (or could they really be bounty hunters from another planet?) the kidnapped Sersha, struggles back and forth with the old man's real identity and far-fetched intentions to whether he truly is genuine in his wild and fantastical beliefs. Or is he just some kind of mad, demented, old fool, having a mental breakdown in his twilight years?

MY REVIEW

Ever read the blurb of a book, think you have a general understanding of what it's about, dive into it, and discover that... You. Know. Nothing??? That's what happened when I read The Old Man and The Princess. Going into the plot would only ruin it, however, I will tell you that the author blessed us with Sersha. She was young, but she wasn't dumb. This girl was enterprising, surprisingly mature, had an independent streak a mile long, and was very opinionated. I loved her! Even the 'mysterious old man' found a way to touch my heart. This story was very character-driven and yet it yielded an intense and captivating plot. If you're up for an adventure with tons of action, suspense and hidden depth, then you need to add this book to your shelf today!!
