Leila is a pretty tough girl. She knows that she was adopted and has a very extreme fear of water, even though her successful adoptive parents have recently purchased a house right on the beach. Her birth father drowned when she was six and that's all she remembers.

As her eighteenth birthday draws near, she discovers some secrets about herself, her past, and her heritage that aren't at all what she was expecting to discover--there's a good chance she's not human.

I enjoyed the adventure that Leila went through to unlock the secrets of her past. I absolutely adored her younger brother and the relationship she had with him. He was so good to roll with things and to give her the friendship, love, and support that she needed. I loved the way Aiden guided her through her discoveries and was there for her. He's quite the guy.

There were "powers" and gifts that were manifested throughout the story and for me, there were too many to keep track of and it was a little overwhelming. I would have liked to see Leila given just a few and to have watched her work with those and maybe discover more in the future books.

This is a fun, creative story for anyone who loves fantasy/mythology, adventure, and clean romance!

Content: no language; some violence--mild-moderate; mild romance. Clean!

This book is so good! The plot is intriguing, the characters are fun and interesting, and the dialogue is fresh and witty! It's well written and well thought out. It's easy to get pulled in and you quickly begin to care about the characters and their stories. I loved some of the more magical characters and can't wait to read more about them! You need to read this book!! It'll leave you anxious for the sequels!
