I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


If you found out you have spent your life living a lie, what would you do: cry, be angry, or live as if nothing has changed? Jade has lived most of her life believing the lie that her father was dead, but now that she knows that lie may soon become true- that her father is not only alive but will die at any minute-what would she do to stop it? Go Despite all that her father had done, all he had killed, she has to go to save him before he actually dies. She has to leave her home, Earth, to go to the home of her kind, Mahgiria. But she knows there will be great risks. Being the result of an illegal act, her stepping foot in the Mahgic Realm alone will automatically put her, and her brother Ayden, at risk of being captured and confi ned for life. She knows the sacrifi ces. To leave her family, her friends, and her one and only true love, Payge, possibly giving up her life for a man who may not deserve it. As Jade goes on her journey, making and breaking promises, she fi nds herself having more questions than answers. Not to mention a power crazed uncle who's hell bent on taking everything she loves away from her, including Earth. Determined to do things on her own, Jade eventually realizes that she is going to need help from others now more than ever. But will it be enough?

Jade has spent most of her life thinking that her father was dead. She finds out he was not, that he is in prison in the world that he comes from. He is Mahgic making Jade half mahgic which is against the law. She decides to go back to the world to save her father. She could be leaving everything behind and endangering everything she loves. Will she find it worth the risk to save her father?

In ” an Oyster Shell –  An interesting read that could use some work.

The Pearls –  The beginning of this book was very interesting. It was a very nice hook that made you curious to continue on with the story.

The world building was fantastic. It was very imaginative in concept, and well executed.

The romance of this story was sweet and intriguing.

The Sand – I feel like this author was missing some of the complexities of the interpersonal relationships between characters.

3 Pearls!
