"There has to be something more in this world than what the average eye sees!"
Keegan is a sixtien years old elf! Now I know you will start thinking of Santa and Christmas, but it's not that kind of elf. These elves are more human-like elves, maybe a bit shorter than an average human and with a bit sharpened ears, but overall very similar to humans.
Keegan is gifted, her mother is a healer, her brother is a seer, and her father is the chosen one, the one that will lead elves in the great battle that is supposed to come.
Keegan's brother Thaddeus, saw that Keegan will be married to Rourk and he is mighty good in predicting! But Keegan's life is suddenly shaken by finding out there's a great war going, and she must find out how to use and control her gift.
A war is been going on since the beginning of time, but this has been shield from the eyes of humans"
Ok, I must admit this sounds amazing and even poetic, so even got me thinking of the symbolism..a war is indeed being going on, evil and good fight every day since the beginning of time. Evil and good in the human nature!
However, I experienced some difficulties reading this book. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying it's a bad book, however I must say it's not actually my cup of tea. It was challenging I admit, so far in my "history" of reading I have never came up with elves (except the ones in Santa's stories), so I really didn't know what to expect. Though I guess, this may disappoint the author if she reads my review, but I have to stay honest, book about elves is just not my kind of read.
But, before judging me (I hope you won't) I really gave this book a fair chance, yet I didn't like it that much.
So you see, besides "my" problem with elves, whom I found really less interesting than vampires lets say, I had some major problem with understand the main character Keegan. I really didn't like her, I simply couldn't get into her "psychology" and understand her. She's a modern elf, with a Facebook and Tumblr account, ok I get that..but I really didn't "feel" her personality.
There's a war going, yet I didn't feel the dynamics. I loved the fact that there are lots of dialogues, and the book is really easy to read, however, I am giving it 2 stars, and truly hoping I will enjoy the sequel more.
