Blurb:

Terra is a testy 17-year-old thrown into a secret world and told she is to act and look like an elf. She has no plans to do anything but be a teen, fall in love, suffer heartbreak, pick herself up, and get the most out of her senior year. When her father dies, none of that is an option. She has to leave her home and best friend to live with an aunt she’s never heard of. Clyde, her ferret, is all she has left of a life she once lived as she learns to manipulate whoever she can and plunge into her new reality – feet first.

 

Crazy gets insane when Terra unknowingly walks into Drakonia, the realm of vampires, and saves a young human woman – Tania – from the grasp of Blood River. Bringing her across the curtain between realms, she puts both their lives in jeopardy.

 

On her mission to find a way home for Tania, she learns she is more than was presented to her as she has the ability to travel to other realms. The only explanation is that she is a hybrid, giving her magical abilities different than others. She keeps this secret as it may cause her more distress, and keeping Tania hidden is already a challenge. She must find a way to get Tania home safely without getting killed or banished. Which means challenging the Tribunal and giving away the secret that she is not elfin.

“There are so many emotions in this story. It makes you laugh, cry, hope, sigh. It will take you back to your teenage years. You will relive the emotional rollercoaster of that time in your life. This is a must read that you can’t put down.” – Julie, Goodreads
 
“I could not stop reading this book. This is an exploration of all that motivates the young as they navigate the waters to reach adulthood along with a smattering of education. It shines a light on the invisible burdens that are not so easily recognized by the world at large. Not all handicaps are visible, and the ones we place on our own hearts may do the most damage. I think this book could start a hundred important conversations.” – Rebekah, Goodreads
