    I loved this book from the start to the finish, it was none stop action all the way through. The story The story centers round Rayla who goe's away to collage with her friend Cassie and discovers she is an elemental who is been hunted by 5 fae lords who each want to bond with her to harness her power. While been chased by these lords Rayla also discovers a secret group that chatches elememtals. The story line was a good and different on the whole faerie concept. I thought the characters worked well together and again there was just enough to keep up with as not to get confused. The story was fast paced and never really slowed down and kept you wanting to read more to find out what was gonna happen next. characters Rayla was a strongish character but was a little on the moany side at times and I just wanted to slap her at times. Cassie was annoying and I found her a hard character to relate to and at times the relationship between Rayla and Cassie just didn't seem to gel. As for the fae lords why is it that men in books these days turn in to snivling, moaning lumps of gello that start strong but then go soft. It would be nice for these men to stay strong and still be good guys. The only thing I was disappointed in was that the story wasn't in faerie world more and when it was it seemed as though it was rushed through till Rayla left and went back to her own world. All in all i loved this book and will be getting the others. I need to know what happens next!!!! :)

    Light & Dark: The Awakening of the Mageknight by Daniel M. Fife I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book and how gripping I found it.When I first started reading it I found it a bit slow and was waiting a little too long for something to happen but when the story finally got going I was sucked in to the world of the Knights of the Light and the ongoing battle with the shadows.I did find the story to be similar to that of Harry Potter but not by much.The storyline was nothing really unique but it worked well. The idea of creating a card game that helped find new Knights of the Light was a really great idea and fit well in to the story. The idea of the bermuda triangle has the entry point and just like in Harry Potter the island is hidden from view and no one knows it's there.The characters I seemed to have problems relating to all of them, they seemed always to be on the outside Like they didn't want you to get to know them in a way.Danny seemed guarded all the time like he was scared to open up the rest were just filler people.I would have liked to have had more magical creatures in the story but maybe they be in the next 1.
