@catstaff: If you want to add the form of book, you can, but it's not necessary. There can be even different editions in the same form with different numbers of pages.

 

@Tatrina: Online unpublished fiction counts if it's over 20k words. I don't know much about wattpad, but from what I've seen they have unpublished fiction and fanfiction. The first one counts. Just put the number of words instead of the number of pages in the form. If the story could be considered unsuitable for minors, post the title, but don't post the link. PM the project account with the link.

 

Sorry for the late replies.

Summary: The authors interviewed and retold the encounters of the modern people of Ireland with the banshee. The book is sectioned off (chaptered) by the counties of Ireland where the stories took place.

Review: I really enjoyed the book as I love all things supernatural and the authors do a great job making the reader feel like they are sitting there around a fire while the authors retell these tales (the reasoning for the 4 stars). However, the editing/proofreading could use some work and often took me out of the "storyteller" mode.

But they start to pull apart when Sadie runs wild during her Rumschpringe and dates an Englisher boy, allowing him liberties she shouldn’t, even after she joins the church. Meanwhile Leah is dating a proper Amish boy named Jonas… to her father Abram’s dismay, as he’d set his heart on Leah, his favorite, marrying their neighbor’s son Gid. But Leah still loves her older sister enough to keep secrets for her… including the fact that Sadie hid a pregnancy and gave birth to a premature baby boy in the home of their old-maid aunt Lizzie, helped only by the local doctor… whose younger son is the baby’s father.

Sadie tries to flee her memories by visiting in the same community where Jonas is, but angry with Leah for telling their parents of her transgressions, makes sure Jonas never gets Leah’s letter denying the rumors.

Both girls are devastated when Mary Ruth’s beau, known for his recklessness and love of racing in his buggy or pony cart, dies in a collision with a car being driven by a ministry student, and his older brother runs away soon after. Mary Ruth finds comfort in a non-Amish church, and their father throws her out. Unwell with a late-life pregnancy, their mother dies in childbirth after asking Leah to raise her toddler sister Lydiann and newborn brother Abe.

But in an effort to protect his family’s name as well as hers on that fateful night, the doctor had exchanged him for a truly stillborn baby born on the same night… leaving Sadie’s son to be raised as Jonas’ young brother Jake, a fact that even Jake’s parents didn’t know. But when Jake and Lydiann fall for one another, Leah must find a way to separate them, in order to prevent Lydiann from marrying her nephew by blood.

Rating: -

Review: In House Of Hades Piper, Jason, Leo, Frank, Hazel, and Nico must fin their way to, and close, the Doors Of Death. The escape route Gaea's forces at using to escape from Tartarus must be closed, but his can only happen if someone tries from the mortal side and the side located in Tartarus. Meanwhile Percy and Annabeth are plunged into Tartarus, their goal to close the Doors on their side. As they face the forces of Tartarus Percy and Annabeth must stay together to have a chance of surviving along with saving the world. In this book by Rick Riordan the author does an excellent job of progressing both characters and conflict. A bit mellow in the beginning, if you stick with the story you will find yourself with with your eyes glued to the page, unable to stop turning. With surprises and secrets around every corner the fourth book in the Heroes of Olympus series is sure to please readers young and old.
