Book Description

"I have a television so I know what a family is supposed to look like but mine is nothing like that. To begin with, both my parents are dead. Not the kind of dead where you bury them in the ground, say some nice words, cry a lot and then never see them again. Nope, when they died they refused to ‘go into the light’ or whatever it is you’re supposed to do when you die. Instead, they came back home. As ghosts. Have you ever been sent to your room by a parent who has no corporeal form? I have and it sucks..."

Xandra Illuminata Smith has lived for the last three years with ghosts as parents but her life gets even stranger after her seventeenth birthday when she finds out that her mother is actually a Witch in hiding and her biological father, whom she knew nothing about, is a Fairy and King of the Fae realm.

Xandra is the first Witch Fairy to be born in thousands of years for very good reason. No one should be able to control that much magic and Xandra was never meant to be born at all but her mother has managed to keep her hidden away until now.

The Witches want her dead and the Fairies want her blood, for only her blood will reopen the gateway to the Fae realm and allow them back into this realm to take revenge on humans and Witches alike for having banished them hundreds of years ago.

Xandra has very little time to learn how to use her powerful Witch and Fairy magic that has been bound since her birth while running from the Fairies who managed to jump realms and want to take her blood to set the others free. She needs someone to teach her and her parents enlist the help of one powerful Fairy who claims to want to keep the realms closed to each other. He will help keep her safe and alive as she learns, at least that's what he says...

About the Author

Loves: 1. People who read my books. 2. My children (Please don’t tell my kids I listed fans before them. You may cause a riot in my home. They’re pretty feisty little buggers.) 3. My cats and dogs when they’re not making me sniffle, sneeze, rub my eyes or irritating my asthma. (Scratch that, they always do and I love them anyway. 4. Writing. (I would have listed this first, but it would have looked bad. Worse than putting fans before my kids.) 5. Good friends (Fortunately, I have several.) 6. Quiet evenings at home in front of the fireplace reading a good book. (Please, like that’s going to happen with five kids in the house - but I can dream can’t I?) 7. I got stuck here so I asked a couple of friends to tell me their fondest memory of me. This is what I got: Deb: It was when you used to babysit Michael and rode the horse in Meijer so he could ride with you. first trip to TX for a wedding. You were at my house and said you would put my clothes in the dryer when they were done. Needless to say, the next morning I had to pack wet clothes in my suitcase. The airline lost my luggage for 4 days so when I finally got it back, my clothes were all mildewed. (Okay, in my defense – I was twelve at the time. The sad thing is, I still forget to put clothes in the dryer.) Michele: I have too many…but one of the first that popped in my head was how you drove all the way to Chicago to look at my apartment for me because I was too hung over, and then gave me all the details so I could pretend I was there. You are a good friend...(It was only a seven hour round trip. What are friends for?) Joe: A particular Domino’s pizza delivery and you invited the delivery guy inside…(I’m going to stop there because my ex-husband thinks he’s funny.) For obvious reasons, I didn’t ask anyone else. Hates: 1. Puppies, kittens, babies, sunshine, peace on earth, goodwill, recycling, education, gifts, and sweets of any kind. (Really, I do.) 2. Being facetious. (I would never dream of it!) 3. People who don’t read my books. (Well, maybe not all of them. But, most of them.) 4. People who always manage to stop by the house when I look terrible. (You know who you are…) 5. Lumberjacks. (Don’t know why, just do.) Now that you know everything about me, you should drop by my Facebook page at to tell me all about you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on fairies and witches 1 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
High-points: The plot was good and sound, and there's a good dynamic of humour and angst.

Hell-pits: The choice of narrative voice was so difficult to read, especially with the please-edit-me issues: sentences like, "I shrug my shoulders as I put another forkful of pancakes in my mouth but then it dawns on me and I look up at her sheepishly." scream out for more punctuation than they're receiving.

Review: Once more with the cry for editing! Lack of commas make this book both difficult and confusing to read. I'm not big on needlessly grandiose/crazy sounding names (the Twilight Saga always has an example, it seems - I'm looking at you, Renesmee), so this book lost some points just for Xandra Illuminata Smith and her little brother Zacchaeus. Between this and the slow-going back story of the first few pages, I nearly stopped reading. On the whole, I'm glad that I didn't.

I loved the Disney-esque fairytale threads of this book - the remembered stories from childhood, and rhymes like "soft of eye and light of touch - speak ye little and listen much" were very good. The idea of a half Witch, half Fairy child was compelling, even more so because she was unaware of this dual heritage. Very nice, and time-honoured good stuff for a coming of age novel. Oh, and Xandra also has incorporeal ghost parents - did I not mention that?

2.0 out of 5 stars True of Blood 16 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The storyline in this book seemed good if a little far fetched but the characters lacked depth and personality.
Two children being raised by their ghost parents and an aunt, with secrets. Xandra (the daughter) comes of age and their quiet mountain existence begins to shatter. Xandra is a witch and fairy, the realms of both her genetic make-up want her dead.As I said a potential of interesting possibilities but unfortunately not so.
I found the book slow, and I am sorry to say, as is was free, not particularly well written, predictable and somewhat wanting.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Mills and Boon romance, not a fantasy novel 15 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At the start, this read like a young adults fantasy novel. The teenage heroine had just discovered she had two kinds of magic.

But as I read more and more, it turned in to a slushy novel of the romance but no actual sex type found in the Mills and Boon series. The only twist was that the heroine was more powerful than the dishy man, instead of being the helpless waif rescued by him.

As that kind of novel, it is probably OK. But if you want a fantasy novel, look elsewhere.
