When a supernatural freak of nature forces her family to separate, seventeen-year-old Charlie Page must turn to her frustrating (yet gorgeous) neighbor, Seth, to help reunite them. Seth whisks Charlie to Ellauria--a magical world filled with the creatures of myths and legends--and tells her of the Fellowship, the group charged with protecting mystical beings from human discovery. (All except Bigfoot: that attention whore is a total lost cause.) But when Charlie learns that she's under the Fellowship's protection herself, well, ""stressed"" is an understatement. Ellauria should be the safest place for Charlie while the Fellowship works to find her family, but things in the mystical realm aren't what they seem. Magic is failing, creatures are dying, and the Fellowship insists Charlie holds the key to saving everyone. With her family still missing and the danger in Ellauria growing, Charlie doesn't know who she can trust. She's dealing with a power she never asked for, falling for a guy she can't have, and being forced to choose between her destiny and her heart. And if she chooses wrong, she could destroy magic forever. Charlie may be in over her head.
This book will draw you in and hold you. Humor is well placed within an incredibly well written story. Deep character stories mixed with magic and a coming of age storyline made it a very easy read. I can't wait for the next one, this writer is destined for the big time.
I feel really honored that Megan Whitmer chose to let me beta this book. I absolutely loved it! Ms. Whitmer has a way of painting such a vivid picture with her words that I felt as if Charlie Page was there inside my head sketching the scene out for me with her charcoals. The love interest is completely swoonworthy, and I absolutely insist that this book be made into a film just so I can experience this amazing world of Ellauria and the Between on a whole other level. Though, I'm not sure any kind of CGI could do this creation justice! This is definitely an adventure everyone needs to read!!!
Exciting and defining YA novel!
