I did enjoy this story, although I am not a fan of 'romance' - it was well written, however, and held my attention, especially when the 'magic' was revealed. The characters were believable, despite the fantasy, and I liked them (good and bad) as the 'darker side' brought another, very interesting, dimension to the plot.
Two couples, decades apart and yet linked...that's all I will say as I don't give spoilers. I will say that it is definitely worth reading and yes, it was cleverly done in that the reader will want to carry on to the next book - I know I will.
Plot: Layla is a girl who doesn't know what to do with her life after her mother's death. Then she is given a letter that reveals her everything about her past and why her life seemed to be kept in secret. She starts a trip to find her family in a different state and there she knows that she is a witch. She meets a boy, and he reveals secrets to Layla. When she finds her family, she puts on a magic ring and the ring tells her the story of her real parents and why she was kept hidden. And that's it. That's all you find in the book.
Characters: they are very flat, too perfect to be true, boring, and inexpressive. You don't get any emotion from them. Layla and Quin at the beginning of the book behave and act in the same way as Aedan and Rose in the rest of the book. Both couples of characters are described the same and they behave the same, and even say the same things.
This book is very descriptive, so the pace is very slow. Besides, the descriptions are dull and repetitive.Read more ›
This book takes you on an emotional roller-coaster from start to finish. Layla is a 21 year old woman who has just discovered that her Mum wasn't her Mum at all and that she had been adopted. Layla is a shy, reclusive person who is talked into going to find her biological family by her 2 friends.
Quin is a 22 year old bloke who is taken with Layla as soon as he lays his eyes on her and has the task of explaining the truth behind who Layla is to her.
This is a book of two stories; Layla & Quin and Rhosewen & Aedan. The plot twists and turns and the character development progresses really well.
There are different POV's running through the book and even though they are not clearly marked out the author has managed to write it without confusing you as to whose mind you are invading at that point.
What I love about this book is that it has its own storyline which concludes nicely and the `series' storyline which leaves you wanting more and waiting for the next book. This is a rare find in a series book.
I found the book a bit slow at times but in spite of this I quite enjoyed the journey this book took me on.
