No lie, this is the third time I’ve read this book.

Sometimes when we reread things, some of the magic is lost.

Not so in this case. Even though I knew all the twists and turns and I’ve been familiar with the characters for a while, I still kind of love this book.

Lucy is a 17 year old who lives with her amazing foster parents. She soon learns that there is a curse on the women in her family going back for generations and she has only a limited time to complete three impossible tasks.

I tried to recommend this book the other day to someone but I didn’t explain it well. I started talking about evil elves and curses and teenagers and her face was kind of priceless. Sometimes it’s hard for people (especially if you’re a little older) to take a chance on something that delves into fantasy. This is a perfect way to dip your feet in without feeling like you’re going to drown in fantastical worlds.

If you like a good love story with a touch of magic, this is the book for you. Check it out.

  1. Great book. Started this morning, couldn’t put it down til I finished it. Literally. I was washing dishes one-handed so I could keep reading. Overall, I give it an 8/10. Two changes would have put it at the 10/10 level (SPOILER ALERT) 1) That she didn’t get married in the middle of the book. I thought less of her for it and felt that their relationship developed to quickly to be believable. 2) That she was 25 not 17. She never acted like a high school senior, not once. Otherwise, I loved it. Great find, Mel. Thanks!
