Book synopsis: Alexa is discovering that her whole life has been a lie. As her nineteenth birthday approaches, her true identity is revealed. The incredible world of witchcraft and Otherworlds come to light. Pulled into a prophecy centuries old, her existence takes a turn for the surreal. As well as having to save all worlds, the choice of who to love is presumably not hers.
Unknowingly drawn into a union with Aidan, the prince of Eruva, Alexa cannot help but be attracted to his younger, carefree brother Liam.
With her destiny set centuries ago, can she save the worlds by forging her own path, or is she fighting the inevitable in love and destruction?
The quest for the Kaemorra, famed crystal of the Sidhe, has only just begun.
Book review: This book has all the elements of a great read for young adults and adults alike. With its combination of supernatural elements, a complicated love triangle, danger, and intrigue, it was very difficult to put down. The characters were well crafted, the plot strong and I really can’t wait to find out what happens next in book 2 of the series.
