About this ebook

Elena must save the very beings who would kill her if given the chance...

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 deadly virus unleashed in Faery is killing immortal Fae, and the only person capable of healing them is a Halven living on Earth.

A mere slip of a girl named Elena Rosales descended from a line of Fae known for their powerful magic, and she'll come into her ability soon. An ability that could destroy the virus--if she can master it.

Her only shot at learning to control her magic and creating 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 attraction can get when they find themselves on the other side of the portal, enemies by birthright, and fighting for survival.

The story had a great message about prejudice of being half human and half fae which could be related to our world today for YA readers. Elena is thrown into a realm she didn't know existed. At first the story was a bit slow, the character were captivating but lack some hook until the middle to the end of the book. I liked the main character loved to cook. Too many girls now a days don't even know how to boil water and have no desire to cook which is sad. I wish the story was more focused in the fae realm but I guess that's what we will get in book 2.

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.

What a beautifully written paranormal story. it totally got my attention from the start and the transformation for both Elena and Derek was presented in such a way that I could picture it in my mind. the plot was well thought out and moved at a good pace for me. a lot of terms were used that I was not used to but it didn't hinder and was easy to pick up. looking forward to fates entwined.
