~ My Review ~
I think I'm in love with this book!! The storyline and the characters are beautifully written. I can't tell you the last time I read a book were one of the main characters was a Elf, and I think this mite be my first Elf book that I've read.
For me there was never a dull moment, Emily has so much going on in her life from an alcoholic mom, absent Dad, to dealing with her weakening heart if thats not enough she finds herself having to deal with even more along the way but through it all her best friend Dafne has always been there for her.When Dafne's brother and sister arrive in town, they turn out to be more than what they appear. She starts seeing thing, telling herself that it can't be real. I long the way she will discover secrets, fall in love, visit a new world were they will face many dangers, someone will betray them and they will fight to get their Kingdom back.
I just want to say thank you to Kelly for such an amazing read and I can't wait for the next book to come out.
