The Forgotten Ones (The Danaan Trilogy #1)
by Laura Howard
Allison O'Malley just graduated from college. Her
life's plan is to get a job and take care of her
schizophrenic mother. She doesn't have room for
friends or even Ethan, who clearly wants more.
When Allison's long-lost father shows up, he claims
he can bring her mother back from the dark place
her mind has sent her. He reveals legends of a race
of people long forgotten, the Tuatha de Danaan,
along with the truth about why he abandoned her

The voice sounded like it was coming from inside my head. But that didn’t make any sense…
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw two people standing far away from the crowd. You’ve got to be kidding. My father and a blonde woman I’d never seen before stood close together. I blinked, and they were gone.
Four guys, as tall and as built as Ethan, approached us, each with a beer and a plate of food balanced in their hands. They greeted Ethan and Jeff, and it was obvious they knew each other well.
Ethan stiffened a tiny bit and put his arm around my shoulder. Surprised, I looked up at him.
“Oh, guys. This is Allison, Nicole’s cousin. Al, these are the guys on our crew—Ted, Jack, Vinny, and Rich.”
I tried to be polite and smile, but my eyes scanned the yard, trying to track down Liam and the mystery woman.
The soda can slipped out of my hand and crashed onto the deck, fizzing all over the legs of the men I’d just met. I dropped down onto my knees to grab the offending soda, horrified.
Snippets of past conversations regarding my mother’s behavior seeped into my mind.
Aunt Jessie’s soft, concerned tone: “She’s always so tense.”
The deep, baritone of the psychologist: “It’s paranoid schizophrenia.”
Gram talking quietly with Pop: “The voices in her head.”
Hands trembling visibly, I looked up, and my eyes locked on Liam and the blonde, who were across the yard from me. Liam looked uncomfortable; the woman just looked amused.
