Book Description

Sixteen-year-old Keegan is struggling to keep her huge secret from her friends—she's an elf, descended from a long line of elves that live in secrecy alongside humans.  
 
In elfin society, mates are predetermined but not allowed to meet until they are eighteen.  Against tradition, Keegan's brother Thaddeus told her Rourk's name because his visions warned him she'd need Rourk's protection, especially since Keegan will play a key role in the coming war between the dark and light elves.
 
Rourk finds himself drawn to Keegan's side every time she thinks his name. He wants to talk to her but remains in the shadows, silently guarding her every time she mentally beckons him. A twist of fate thrusts the two of them together when Rourk is forced to step up his protection and make his presence known.
 
An ancient prophecy deeply entwines Keegan's family and the future of their society. Somehow they must find a way to thwart fate and win the battle...without losing Keegan. With war brewing, and dark forces aligning, will Keegan and Rourk ever have the life together that they both desire?

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling story. 26 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Great teen fantasy novel. The main character is Keegan who has a 'chosen' partner Rourk. Their relationship is compelling, very intense and reminds me of Bella and Edward in Stephanie Meyer's Twilight. Magic, prophecy and an epic battle, as well as the romance between Keegan and Rourk make this a novel that draws you in. I think it would make a great film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very promising series! 27 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
My time with this book was fluent, since is not too long I only needed a couple of hours to finish it and right now I'm not sure of how I feel. But let me explain. Yes, the book was super good. Julia's writing is very smooth and she pictures the mind of a teenager really well, specially an elf teenager.
But in fact all that Keegan wants is to be normal and to enjoy her live before she meets her chosen one. When that happens she knows everything is going to be perfect with him but until then, why not enjoy her life?
But as normal as she wants to be she doesn't know that her friends are nothing but normal themselves...
Nevertheless, there's a war coming and her family plays a very important role: Her father, Richard, is the one that will guide the elves of light to battle. Her mother is a healer and her little brother, Thaddeus, is a seer, but not a normal seer: he is the one that will stop the war between light elves and dark elves. But he is only twelve and although he's strong and very mature for his age he is still not sure of how is he going to stop everything... And what is worst, in a vision he saw his own sister dead during the war...
So he decides to tell her the name of her chosen one so she will think of him if she is in danger. Rourk, her chosen, oblivious to all this is draged to her every time she thinks of him. The poor guy doesn't stand a chance, we girls if we are in love are used to think of our love every spare moment we have, right? So it doesn't matter if he is busy doing something, he needs to go and look for her.

The characters are really cool. Keegan is beautiful but still a nice and sweet girl. Rourk is the type of guy that I would love to have for myself, confident, strong, protective and caring... sigh... Yes, sorry, I need to focus.

3.0 out of 5 stars Something A Little Bit Different. 22 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
OK, Coexist. I have had this on my kindle since way back last March. And after reading Julia's Freak of Nature (reviewing coming Feb for the Blog Tour) I wanted to read more of her work. However, while I really enjoyed Freak of Nature, Coexist I am still unsure if I liked it or not.

Coexist is told in third person so it jumps around between characters and scenes a lot! I found this very confusing and couldn't really keep track at times. The story itself skips through time way to quickly. It can skip through nearly 6 months within a paragraph and that always slows down my reading. I understand this happens a lot in books but it just didn't flow right within this story. Some of the characters make no sense at all. You don't know their backstory so it leaves things very confusing. By the end of the book I just didn't like the how it played out, the author puts a twist into it that just didn't feel right.

HOWEVER!!!!!

The concept of Coexist is interesting and completely different. Elves!! I have never read a book with Elves before and it was intriguing. We learn some background on the Elves and I am not usually a big romantic but I liked how their relationships work with other Elves. I also LOVED the Irish connection to the story. I loved Ireland and most things connected to it. So this was wonderful for me.

I also loved Keegan and Rourk. They aren't meant to know about each other until they are both 18 but because Keegan's brother, Thaddeus is a Seer he told Keegan Rourk's name. Rourk feels a pull towards Keegan any time she thinks of him but it is only one way. He is determind to hold off until she is 18 before officially meeting her but it drives him crazy. Which I find adorable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Average Read 18 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This one another one of my DSOA picks. I tried; I almost failed. This was very nearly a DFN (did not finish), but I battled on regardless.

Poor characterisation, poor plot progression and timing, but please bear in mind that this is just my own very humble opinion. What is one woman's mean is poison to her friend.

It just scored a 2 star rating from me, and I don't think I will bother to read any more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars more than a teen love story 14 Aug. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Keegan is sixteen and is trying to keep a big secret from her friends....she is an elf and is descended from a long line of elves that live secretly among humans.
In elfin society mates are predetermined, however they are not allowed to meet until the are eighteen. against this tradition Keegan's brother Thaddeus has told her the name of her future mate. Thaddeus has visions and sees that Keegan will need the protection of Rourk her mate in the forthcoming war between the dark and the light elves.
Rourk is drawn to Keegan's side every time she is in need of protection, but he tries to stay in the background unseen. However a twist of fate pusshes them both together and Rourk is forced out into making his presence known to protect Keegan.
An ancient prophecy entwines around Keegan's family and the future of society. Can they thwart fate and win the war without losing Keegan? With a war and dark forces looming can Keegan and Rourk have the life together that they both wish for?
First of all I have to say I read the book in two sessions at night before I went to sleep. I found it quite a nice, relaxing read, that I could sit back and enjoy. Observing the happy family life Keegan had. Of course I was more on the edge of my seat for the Great Battle. There were some really good twists in there too, you found out certain people were also paranormal and you would not have guessed it.....well perhaps with one character. There is also a hidden moral in there too, that we all have to coexist, so why not try to get on. It is cleverly delivered and not in a preaching kind of way. The book is more aimed to the YA/Teen market but as you will see from my profile information I am certainly no teen but I still really enjoyed this book.
