A tale steeped in magic and romance, with all the right touches of 'evil' waiting to pounce.

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.

Didn't like this first book at all, it was long drawn out and should have been tied in with the second book of the series. Half the book was about Layla's parents and although important to the theme of the series didn't need all the fine details especially when the story wasn't about them and it was a vision from a ring. I read the second book as I was intrigued as to what was actually going on. The second book was much better but be patient because the third book has some all out action and emotion.....

I'm not good a writing reviews but this book really touched me and pulled at my heart strings. I normally avoid books that make me cry but I'm glad I didn't avoid this one. This was a brilliant read and I downloaded the second book straight away, I was still crying through the beginning of the second book, (my eyes are so puffy this morning I'm glad I didn't have to go to work,) I'm sure will will agree with me that when a book gets you like that, that's the sign of a very good writer. Well done to you B C Burgess :)

Since I started reading books written by Indie authors, this novel has been the greatest disappointment. I am a very fast reader, but this book took me forever. I had to force myself to go on reading, because I really felt like stopping reading it for good. I really don't like writing bad reviews, but in this case I cannot do another thing but do it. The book is full of details that reminded me of details in other books. In fact, I could recognise details, situations, and even similar names to the ones you can read in Harry Potter and Twilight. Clearly, the author is too influenced by her previous readings. Since this happens all over the book, I have to say that it lacks originality.

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.

I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review by the author.
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.

I got this book when it was free on Amazon, I don't think I would have bought it from the description if I had to pay for it, Im really glad I got it free and decided to read it. Its not the best supernatural story iv read and took me a minute to get in to it but when I did I really enjoyed it, I will be buying the next one, It has the chemistry and a really good story within it, I actually cried at one part, so yeah id say its worth buying and most will enjoy it.
