Blurb
Once upon a time a girl lost everything familiar. She escaped death by being forced into an experiment that left her in another world where modern day knights, elves, vampires, werewolves, witches, demons and fae became her allies, friends and family. She discovered a place where adventure intersects fairytales, where honor is more than an ideal, and she learned that love can find you in the strangest places, when you’re least expecting it, even when you’re far, far from home. This is the story of Elora Laiken’s strange and wonderful journey. It is also the story of those whose lives she touches along the way.

If you love romance, paranormal, science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy, contemporary, this series is right for you. 17+




Review


In a world where Elves and Fea are enemies in an age old war, Duff Torquil, Prince of the Scotia Fea and heir to the thrown, should not be falling in love with Aelsong Hawking, sister of Ram and an elf who is also a member of the royal family. But that's what's happening and Song is feeling exactly the same way. Knowing how much trouble their love for each other will cause on both sides of the fence, they decide the only way they can be together is to run away and so they do, but their families soon have something to say about it and things don't work out quite as they planned.

“Song could not keep her eyes off him. Or her hands for that matter. Every few minutes she reached over to rearrange a lock of fine dark hair, not because it was out of place, but because she wanted the touch between her fingers.”


I've been looking forward to Duff and Song getting together and overall this story didn't disappoint. I absolutely adored the scene in book four 'Moonlight', at the party, where Song and Duff met in secret so my only grumble, and it's a very minor grumble, is that I would have liked a little more of their secret liaisons before the big 'happening'. This was a shorter book than the previous ones, and I could feel that things moved along quicker, but none of that changes how much I enjoyed it.

I really liked the idea of the excerpts from previous books at the beginning and was grateful for them as a reminder of past events.

Victoria Danann certainly has a big imagination and, again, this story shows that. Another great episode in the saga that has become one of my favourite paranormal romance reads.

I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys the genre, and even those who don't really read PNR. Go and buy these books. You won't be disappointed.
