Tab Bennett is normalunusually, excessively normal. Her job as a bank teller is safe and secure, her grandfather finally let her move out of the house (at least to the cottage at the end of the driveway), and her fiance fiercely guards her chastity, whether she wants him to or not. It’s something of a shock, then, when Tab learns that she is the elvish queen of the fabled kingdom of the Inbetween. Also shocking is the appearance of the staggeringly confident and gorgeous elvish warrior who claims to be Tab’s true betrothed. Even amidst a steipconfigamy love triangle, Tab must tell friend from foe in an unknown world of danger, deceit, magic, and sex. The first book in the Underneath & Inbetween trilogy, The Uncovering sparkles with wit and unadulterated fun.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The Uncovering is the first book in a trilogy by Jes Young. We get introduced to our main character, Tab Bennett right away. Tab is as normal as a person can get, except that for the last few months, her sistersh ave been killed, one by one. After they vanish, Tab has visions about their deaths, but never fast enough to actually save one of them. It’s on the day of her sister’s funeral, Tab finds out she’s not normal as she might have hoped. Tab is the long lost princess of the light elves. After the murder on her mother, the queen of the elves, by the dark elves, she was sent to earth along with several guardians to protect her. Now she’s coming of age, and the dark elves have started to chase her again, trying to kill her. Tab must deal with losing hezr sisters, and discovering about a world of magic, elves and intrigue, all at once. In the midst of all that is a love triangle. I’m not always a fan of love triangles, but this one works well. Both love interests – on the one hand, Tab’s fiance, and Alex, the man who she feels inexplicably drawn to. Tab was an intriguing character. Her struggles were interesting, and her ability to go on, no matter what happened, made her stand out from other characters. She’s surrounded by a nice cast of secondary characters, and the love interests were enjoyable as well. All in all, a decent novel for paranormal romance fans. I thought the beginning was the best part, but the novel holds up strong until the end.
Title: The Uncovering Author: Jes Young I recieved a copy of the book from PR&aTR and received no compensation for this review. I give the book 4 fangs/stars. The main character Tab Bennett’s life is quiet, uncomplicated. She has a fiancée and a job she likes in the local bank. But her sisters’ disappearance brings hidden secrets into the light, now her life consists of long hidden secrets of her lineage and birth, of a destiny she can't avoid. Now “normal” means juggling her fiancé’s broken heart and a handsome prince’s irresistible advances ( yes it gets very complicated in her love life) while trying to work out who is plotting to kill her. As she struggles with finding out she's not human but actually an Elvish princess. That the family she thought she had were actually sent to keep her safe, that the enemy are willing to kill to get to her. Have you ever read a book, that niggles at you, that you are not completely sure what it is, but something just feels off? Now as I sit here thinking of what to write. I wonder why such things were kept from her... They should have at least told her and trained her up when her "sisters" started going missing. I don't want to say more as it would spoil it for new readers. When trying to pick a category for this book, it was a bit stuck In between Young Adult, and New Adult... Cut out the sex scenes and it would sit neatly in Young Adult but because the author has spiced it up it can't But Tab's demeanour is too childish to me, at 20 why would she not question why her fiancée wouldn't get hot and heavy with her? Why would she not demand more information when her "family" want to lie and cover up the deaths. But I did enjoy this story, there is a lot happening, it's written well, but this is a trilogy ( again! - anyone else fed up with serial books?) It's got intrigue and a few twists in it and I am interested to see where the author will take Tab next. Please note... From research this book has been previously released under a different title and I think that there should be a disclaimer plainly stated so readers are aware. There is nothing more frustrating than buying a book previously purchased and read.from my research the book was origionally known as Tab Bennett and the Inbetween (Princess of Twilight and Dawn, #1) by Jes Young (Goodreads Author) 3.85 of 5 stars 3.85 avg rating — 307 ratings — published 2012 — 4 editions Book 2 is being re launched under the Title 'The Delving' in June 2014 it was previously known as: Underneath (Princess of Twi...
