'Old bloodlines are awakening and their only hope to defeat the amassing shadows is two young rivals.Can you escape the secrets within your blood?
'Even with her soul’s companion and protector, the wolf Ardour is not enough to stop Ellawyn fleeing from the curse that threatens to consume her and that has torn the life from her best friend Daemon. Ardour is not what he seems and watches in anguish as terror turns to anger and drives his spirited and creative Ellawyn further from him and herself.
'While Faeren, a witch who fears nothing but ignorance and bad taste in fashion, silently vows vengeance upon Ellawyn and the Beast that stole Daemon from her. Flinching involuntarily to avoid his blood, as she was taught, Faeren refuses to accept his death. This should not have happened, he should not have died, her visions could not be wrong. After all on her sixteenth birthday, in two weeks Faeren would be the most powerful witch her family had seen in centuries and Daemon was to be her escort.
'Faeren delves in magic that had been hidden from her as she prepares to move to their ancestral estate to study openly with her Grandfather and Aunt. While Ellawyn dreams herself into a realm that she had believed only existed in faerie-tales.
Darkness and despair in the form of nightmares has descended upon the land once again while the Ageless ones argue over the two that would be their saviors, while the pair are unprepared and unaware of their destinies. The inhabitants of the In-between are forbidden to interfere or assist the Corporeal girls. Even the dead whisper of the coming war of darkness and the Chosen One, although they would do anything to prevent any useful information to pass to the living.
'EVERTWEEN is aimed at the older readers of YA, however there is a dynamic twelve-year-old, Aarina who is accepted as a peer by the others and is an unassuming heroine throughout the story. I believe she will appeal to the stronger younger readers, looking for a tale that takes them from being ‘forever-in-between’ child and teen.
'Ellawyn and Faeren must journey through the Shadows to find what was lost…the secrets hidden within their blood.'
