    Description

    Miss Ada Quicksilver, a student of London's Lovelace Academy for Promising Young Women, is spending her holiday in Ireland to pursue her anthropological study of fairies. She visits Dublin's absinthe bars to investigate a supposed association between the bittersweet spirit and fairy sightings.

    One night a handsome Irishman approaches her, introducing himself as Edward Donoghue. Edward takes absinthe to relieve his sleepwalking, and she is eager to hear whether he has experience with fairies. Instead, she discovers that he's the earl of Meath, and that he will soon visit a mysterious ruin at Newgrange on the orders of his cousin, the beautiful, half-mad Queen Isolde. On learning about Ada's area of study, he invites her to accompany him.

    Ada is torn between a sensible fear of becoming entangled with the clearly troubled gentleman and her compelling desire to ease his suffering. Finally she accepts his invitation, and they arrive in time for the winter solstice. That night, the secret of Edward's affliction is revealed: he is, in fact, a lord in two worlds and can no longer suppress his shadow self.

    Little does either of them realize that their blossoming friendship-and slowly kindling passion-will lead to discoveries that wrench open a door sealed for centuries, throwing them into a war that will change Ireland forever.

    Commentaires

    “Magical and brilliant! The Absinthe Earl is a fast-paced romp that expertly weaves two different worlds into an adventure not to be missed. Sharon Lynn Fisher crafts clever dialogue and creates characters to fall in love with.” (Lorraine Heath, best-selling author of the Scoundrels of St. James series)

    “Charming and filled with intriguing characters, dangerous enemies, and hidden desires, The Absinthe Earl hooked me from the start.” (Maria V. Snyder, New York Times best-selling author of Poison Study)

    “Wonderfully written and wonderfully romantic, Sharon Lynn Fisher’s The Absinthe Earl sweeps readers into a powerfully reimagined Victorian Ireland where a strong queen rules and the world of Faery is just a heartbeat away. Young English scholar Ada Quicksilver has come to Ireland to study faery lore. She doesn’t expect to meet a haunted earl who drinks absinthe so that faeries won’t disturb his dreams, nor to find that she has faery ancestry herself. Least of all does she expect to find herself in the middle of a war between her world and an ancient evil that wants to destroy everything she knows - and the man she has come to love.” (Mary Jo Putney, New York Times best-selling author)

    Longest book in history

    the book couldn't keep my attention. The only reason I complete the book was to hear how it ended. Mosr books I can't go long without wanting to continue listening. This one I could go days or even a week before opening it to listen .

    This was a gripping tale!

    I loved the story written with such creative twists on old legends of Ireland! I liked the alternate history line and the reasons for the potato blight.
    The main characters were so brilliantly relatable and their journey both love and acceptance feels measured and sincere. The love scenes are hot and lovely.
    The actors both were able to read in accents that didn'tdistract from the story itself. Sometimes it's really hard to find narrators who can sustain a good Irish accent - especially for multiple characters.
    Super exciting to have discovered a new author and series to obsess over! ❤☘

    Enjoyable read

    Decent, non-cringeworthy reading voices. Very descriptive, but definitely not boring. Enjoyed this book very much. I love anything to do with fae and this author hits spot on with mythology and romance. I felt like I was in the mind of the two characters.

    I wanted to like this book. it has beautifully descriptive language. however, I was bored I made it through the first part I could not make it through the second part. Even the sex scenes were boring.

    The absinthe earl

    I struggled to finish the book, not because of the story, but because of my health issues. The story is good.
