Overview

My name is Althea, and I am an Immortal living among Mortals. Momma taught me to blend in; appear human. The more human we tried to be, the less stress we had from the Hunters. We avoided unwanted attention by following a strict set of personal rules. Unfortunately, Momma had been gone for several years now. She just never came home one night; I was thirteen years old when it happened. Soon, I would be breaking the most fundamental rule she had ever taught me; don’t ever do anything that will get you noticed.

I know being half Demon is not exactly a ringing endorsement on my behalf, but it does have its benefits, as well as its drawbacks. Being that I was also half Fairy might sound better, but it is not. Fey can be just as evil as any Demon; sometimes much worse. The time for running and hiding from those hunting me has ended, and the time to stand up and fight back has begun.

Editorial Reviews

goodreads - Deborah Hughes
This was an engrossing and interesting read.The lead character, Althea,has unusual powers and is a heroine you can like right from the start. The world that the author, Weikel, has created leaves for all sorts of wonderful future stories! Using all manner of creatures and beings, good and bad, there is something going on all the time.Highly recommend for those who like dark fantasy with some romance, lots of action, plot twists and turns, a heroine to root for and an over-the-top supporting cast

One treat I absolutely loved was the description of Rolland’s Kingdom. I got such a fabulous visual of exactly how it should look and I could truly imagine myself there. While I know the residents was being deprived of certain things, the fact that he lived in a castle in a tree and there were birdcage cage elevators…what a gorgeous image for me. What followed in his kingdom was fabulous, as Althea used her talent of the shadows. I didn’t expect it, and loved what happened!

    Great potential series

    The first chapter hooked me and kept me reading until the very end. I highly recommend this book to fans of Fantasy and strong female Heroes.
