Adventure wasn’t something Lorelei Alundra was interested in. Gifted with two other-worldly talents for singing and healing, she’s always shied away from her gifts and the spotlight, preferring quiet anonymity, over attention and fame. But when she meets the enigmatic Adrius, with his dark and dangerous mystique and eyes that could see into her soul, her uneventful life becomes irrevocably altered.
Adrius turns up in every one of her classes and knows more about her than any newcomer should. Including the condition of her mother who is suffering from a mysterious illness. Accepting his offer to help leads her into a terrifying and thrilling world, where Elves are even hotter than Legolas, and Faeries.... are nothing like Tinkerbell. The two magical beings are fire and ice opposites. One Lorelei can’t help falling for, and the other she's compelled to be with.
Now she’s trapped, expected to prevent a war between witches and faeries, or forfeit her mother’s life. Nothing is what it seems. Not her family. Not the Fey. Not even Adrius, whose feelings for her balance precariously between desire and danger. Despite her better judgment, she can’t say away from him.
As secrets unravel and unsettling truths are revealed, Lorelei must fight to save much more than her mother’s life. One mistake could put the fate of his world, and her soul in jeopardy.
But hey, no pressure… right.
InD'Tale Magazine review
4.5 star rating with a Golden Heart Crown of Excellence Award
Michele Barrow-Belisle has such an exquisite way with words! She paints a very wild and vivid picture throughout the entire story. The creatures and the scenery practically jump off the page as the reader travels on a journey of a girl finding where she came from and who she is. The amount of characters and creatures are abundant at times and the reader may get caught up in trying to keep them all straight. The reader must concentrate to remember the main characters are the focus while all the others are part of setting the scenes. For fantasy lovers, this is a fun, fantastic tale where with everyone can live happily ever after….or can they??
