As a lover of fantasy books, this book was right up my alley. I am so glad I chose to read and review this book. I loved following the story of Ryleigh and Mia, how close as sisters they became. Jackson was an awesome character as well. This was a great read and kept me on my toes all the way through. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I don’t give out spoilers in my reviews so you’ll just have to take my word for it. I loved it and can’t wait to read more by this author. What a wild fantasy ride. 5 ***** all the way around from this reviewer.
