The source appears to be McDaid using the metaphor in an off-handed manner that doesn't really support our describing it in the manner we do.

In favour of the former view are the entirely peripheral and rare occurrences of the tales of the Little People in Irish and Scottish mythology, and the lack of a purely native name excluding Abhaic. It bears very little relation to the genuine Irish tradition and its popularity is largely as a result of the gradual erosion of native Irish culture in favour of a crude Anglo-American approximation.
Alternative regional names in the Irish language for the Little People are usually derived from words or concepts related to their nature: small, furtive, rarely seen, large-footed, and possessed of magic or treasures. Here is the most comprehensive list of words:.
- Third World Education: Quality and Equality (Reference Books in International Education).
- The Beast Within | Shapeshifters in Irish Mythology.
- Il Testamento di Gesù (Italian Edition).

Has she plunged down the rabbit hole or is this her destiny calling her home?
To say I loved this book is a huge understatement. First, I read it in two sittings.
I was sucked into the story from the beginning and found Ashling to be a lot like me when I was a teenage girl. An absolutely charming character and one who I identified with most. Second, the backdrop of Ireland and the mystical elements drew me further into the story. Judith Sterling has developed a fascinating world and totally believable.
Third, the relationship between Ashling and Aengus was slow building sweet romance which I adored. The mystery surrounding Aengus piqued my interest and when he revealed his secrets to Ashling, I swooned. No really, I did. Write faster, Judith Sterling! View 2 comments.

I love the characters, the dialogue flow, and the explanations of the spiritual world connecting through planes to the here and now. Ashling, Aengus, and their two families are likeable and charming. Well done, Judith! I loved this book.

Check it out. What I liked about the book: Set in Ireland its characters are well rounded and believable. The story moves at a fast past. The descriptions make you feel like you were right there with the characters through their adventures. I love it when a book makes me feel a part of the story. If you like paranormal romanc I loved this book. The next book in the series The Stone Awakened is patiently waiting on my ipad to be read. I highly recommend A Cauldron Stirred.

I received a copy of this book for free through a giveaway at Goodreads. Is it because of the writing? Is it the story? Is it down to the characters? Yes, they can take some of the credit! Judith Sterling's writing has a warmth to it that I really appreciated. The story is fairly simple in that it's easy to keep track of everything going on. The characters are I think this book would be perfect for reluctant readers of the age-range the book is aimed at - and anyone else who wants a quick, fun, enjoyable read.
As a lover of Ireland and Irish mythology, I was swept away to this country along with the Donoghue family.

They added depth, especially when mysterious secrets are revealed. Even though this is a young adult novel, Ms. Sterling weaves a beautiful tale with her writing, and I was captured! The Cauldron Stirred is a surreal fantasy full of adventure, a hint of romance, a lot of mystery. The book does end in a bit of a cliffhanger so naturally I want the next edition now The main character was easy to identify with, however the situations she goes through are hard to imagine and sometimes follow.
I am eager to see how the rest of the series unfolds. Ashling Donoghue and her family are destined to get mixed up in the fantastical world of Ireland when they go on an adventure filled with myths and mystery. I love any mythology and Judith Sterling integrated ancient Irish Mythology brilliantly into her novel. Although I am not an expert with all the lore, I loved learning more about it. Leprechauns, Unicorns, Fairies, the Otherworld and even ghosts. The book was informative and magical, as we learned all about Irish Mythology alongsi Ashling Donoghue and her family are destined to get mixed up in the fantastical world of Ireland when they go on an adventure filled with myths and mystery.
The book was informative and magical, as we learned all about Irish Mythology alongside Ashling. I adored Ashling's character. She is strong, stubborn and she relies on her instincts. She has a deep love for her family. Most characters who cross her path can see how strong, and curious she is. Aengus is mysterious, and slowly Ashling helps Aengus open up to her and the reader.
The book is vividly detailed and with all the mythological creatures, castles and beautiful scenery of Ireland I was left with a great sense of Wanderlust.
Christmas in Camelot (Magic Tree House Merlin Mission Series #1)
Sterling set the book up brilliantly as the first in a series. It was a great introduction to all the characters. Each character grows so much during this book, revealing a lot about their personality and their place in this fantasy world. Straight from the beginning of the novel the reader gets the feeling that destiny plays a major role in the characters lives. When I ended the novel I had post- book depression, because Stirling cleverly left us wanting more. This adventure is just beginning and I can't wait to read the sequel, which I'm sure will be packed with adventure and more exciting mythology.
You know the saying "Don't judge a book by its cover"? Well it certainly applies to The Cauldron Stirred.
When I saw the cover on Netgalley, it didn't immediately appeal, it looked a bit boring. And boy, was I glad to have had my hands on this one! Judith Sterling does an excellent job in creating a magical world with leprechauns, unicorns and mythical creatures. Ashling Donoghue always felt like she was destined to be something else. And when her mother and father are invited to study some old manuscripts in Ireland, she and her brothers and sister move to Ireland to the estate of the Breasals.
The moment she arrives in Ireland, she feels like she is home. She really doesn't understand why she feels that way and she certainly doesn't understand why she is seeing Aengus in her dreams, even before she met him in real life.
