BLURB: Elora Laiken has narrowly escaped assassination by being forced into an alternate dimension. With everything familiar gone, she must adapt. This is the story of how modern day knights, elves, vampires, werewolves, witches, demons and fae became her allies, friends and family. She discovered a place where romance, fantasy and adventure intersect fairy tales and she learned that love can find you in the strangest places, when you’re least expecting it, even when you’re far, far from home.
Review: This book takes you to a fascinating new world filled with a bunch of great characters that I loved. Elora is pushed through to a new dimension parallel to her own world that is similar yet has many differences. Her journey is what makes this more than just a love story. It is full of adventure, danger, acceptance, change and learning about yourself. The love triangle that evolves will pull at your heartstrings. While there was love for both males, in the end only one could truly fill Elora’s heart. And that brings us to another reason I liked this book so much. He wasn’t by any means the perfect mate. He made mistake after mistake. many times screwing things up by saying or doing the wrong thing. He grows and learns a lot about himself and changes his ways. Yet even after getting together, they find out that no relationship is foolproof, especially when you stick your foot in your mouth. Such is life.
