Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she’s an Elder but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she’s betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and she doesn’t even know his name.

Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky Southern girl and to fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is and not what she’ll be.

As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head or her heart win the battle?

***Amanda – #NerdGirlWitch’s  Review***
This was an amazing book! Stormy Smith is an incredible author who knows how to captivate her audience and keep them on the edge of their seats! I couldn’t put the book down for a min! the story and the characters where both amazing and I found myself unable to stop turning the pages until the very end.

I felt so sorry for poor Amelia and the life that she had to endure but at the same time she had such incredible untapped power that if I was her I think I would have been a little more adventurous with it…lol…as I have a little bit of a wicked side, Amelia however felt such responsibility she was much more wise with her power at times then I would have been. I loved the twist and turns that Stormy threw into the books as I didn’t see a lot of them coming and it made the book even better! I can’t wait to read more of the story!

The evil Queen that is after Amelia in the story is pretty much just talked about throughout the book with a little cameo at the beginning then you get to meet her again in the end. For most of the book you only get the rumour mill type of creepiness about her and stormy did an amazing job of punching that up to incredible levels at the end when you get to meet the real thing…lol…she was the epitome of creepy!

My favourite character had to be Aidan. I knew right from the start he was special and was meant for a more permanent part in in Amelia’s life. I loved how it is all starting to come together and I can’t wait for the next book!
