Publisher's Summary

"Don't do it, Annika," he taunted. His eyes were no longer bright and charming, but dark and intense, yet they still twinkled. He was tempting, but was he harmful?
Aspiring rock star Annika Brisby thinks she knows where her life is going until she steps through a broken portal that leaves her stranded in a fae-filled realm of fairies, shapeshifter druids, psychic vampires, and other mythical beings. Unable to return until it's repaired, she's rescued by wood nymphs who believe her sudden arrival is no accident. After being taken in by a prominent family of elves, Annika finds herself struggling to resist the seductive spell of their youngest son, Talvi. Equal parts arrogant and alluring, the notorious heartbreaker seems like the perfect distraction for her homesickness. Her new friends warn her that she'll probably regret ever laying eyes on him, and what begins as a casual fling with a telepathic elf for a lover quickly burns too hot to handle. By the time Annika learns the consequences of their forbidden trysts, Talvi's already under her skin and dangerously close to her heart. But on the journey home she discovers that there's a mountain of secrets that he's not telling her, and Annika can't help wondering who's really in danger.
You'll enjoy this edgy, dark blend of New Adult Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance if you're a fan of Laurell K. Hamilton, Kresley Cole, Donna Grant, Charlaine Harris, Karen Marie Moning, Jeanine Frost, J.R. Ward, and Lynsay Sands.

Epic style enjoyable!

Emigh Cannaday has created a fantastic alternate reality with magic and portals, faeries and elves, trolls and vampires, and much more. It has a lot of similarities to a simpler version of human life as we know it. But it is also strikingly unique.

This story has a little feeling of Alice falling through a hole, mixed with the Lord of Rings namely collecting friends and allies to go on an epic adventure, as well as a lot of the angst associated with the development of new romances. The characters are numerous, all vibrant and interesting. While the story centres on Annika and Talvi, the supporting characters create a wonderful tapestry surrounding the two main characters.

I like how the book ends. Without making this a spoiler, there is a HEA but also a hint of more to come. Cannot wait!!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Feisty romance

Any additional comments?

Annika is thrown into a world where fairies, elves, and unicorns roam the land. She doesn’t have the option of leaving and is soon thrust into the fight to regain control over the portals to the human world. Having Talvi, the handsome but annoying elf at her side throws an added complication but on this epic journey she will find out the truth about him and the others in her group.
After a slow start, the book became so addictive I couldn’t put it down. Annika is fierce, strong-willed, and doesn’t let people take advantage of her. Talvi is the lovable, flirtatious elf who charms her. The love aspect of this book isn’t the only thing going on. The story is about the epic journey they take and the fight for freedom as much as it is about love.
I read this book on both Kindle and audiobook and I must say the audiobook really did it justice.
