Jules Barnard has given us a truly wonderful beginning to a YA paranormal series with this book. With great writing she brings the fantasy world to life. The story did have parts that seemed to drag a little and it took me a bit to understand all the new terminology (Fae, Halvens etc,) but once that all clicked into place the story moved along.The romance that develops between Elena and Derek is sweet and while not the main focus of the book it definitely adds to the story.If you love paranormal, this is a good one. I recommend it.
About This Item
Elena is the only person who can save her mother's people, the Fae. But when her handsome, secretive neighbor Derek gets involved, allegiances and love are tested.
There's nothing Fae despise more than the half-breed called Halven, a race of lesser beings produced by the mating of a Fae and a human.
Only now those Halven are looking more useful each day, because a virus that kills immortal Fae has been unleashed in Faery, and every life is at stake. Except for Halven who live on Earth. And one Halven, in particular, who has the power to help them.
A mere slip of a girl named Elena Rosales descended from a line of Fae known for their special magic, and she'll come into her ability soon. An ability that could destroy the virus--if she can master her new powers.
Her only shot at learning to control the magic she was born into and create a cure? Enlisting the help of her brooding, though brilliant, chemist neighbor Derek, who rivals the Fae in masculine beauty.
But when Elena and Derek get together, more than chemicals spark fire. They soon discover how complicated physical attraction can get when they find themselves on the other side of the portal, enemies by birthright, and fighting for survival.
