Veronica doesn't think she's going crazy. But why can't anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes?

When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months. But the Scottish countryside holds other plans. Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna's great aunt--and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation.

Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica's daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they've longed for... or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

LOVED THIS BOOK!!! This is a romantic, action packed work of art! A real cliffhanger!

This is one of my favorite books! I couldn't put it down. It keeps you on edge the whole time you're reading it. I have read it countless times and it never gets old.
It does have romance in it, but that isn't what the whole book is about.
Both of the princes are totally swoon-worthy and tbh I'm defiantly in love with Jamie McCray. Jamie had me head over heels for him before I could even breathe. His defiantly #1 on my fictional boyfriend list (although Jest from "Heartless" by Marissa Meyer is a close #2).

This was a re-read for me in preparation for the final novel Forever Doon which I seriously cannot wait for. Huge shoutout to Sasha Alsberg who is the one who inspired me to read this novel on her youtube channel. She loved the book, and set high expectations for this book and I was not let down. The writing was very well done in this book. Every place that Vee and Kenna went was very well described.
But re-reading this book didn't make it any less exciting. Even though I knew what happened in the end, I was still shaking with anticipation and anxiety in my chair for at least the last seventy pages. It was serious torture for me because I was constantly picking up the book and putting it down 2 seconds later.
Now lets talk about princes. I have a long list of fictional boyfriends but princes do beat all. Jamie and Duncan are so swoon worthy and the land of Doon makes romance so much more magical. Also, Jamie may or may not be my new favorite fictional boyfriend. He is sooo enchanting

I definitely love the clash between old and new in Doon (ehehe the sushi ><). It Gives a great update to the Medieval times background. I couldn't believe the ending though. How could she.. I was like "NOOOOOO". But that's alright, it'll just make for a more interesting Sequel. Can't wait to read it~ ^^
