This book is about a young girl (Eileen) who grew up without her father and she never knew why. Her best friend (Amanda) is from the Fairie family and they have certain magical abilities. The two friends are all set to go to the university that they want to go to when both are informed that they have to attend the "magical" university where Christine Fairie (Amanda's brother) attends and where Amanda's Father is a professor. Not happy, but having no choice--off the two go. Amanda is already 18 and has to start "classes" immediately. Eileen has a couple of months to go and is assigned a tutor to help her get acclimated. It becomes obvious early on in the story that Eileen has several if not all of the 5 magical abilities which is highly unusual.
It is also obvious from the start that Christine and Eileen have some kind of an instant attraction. But just how bonded are they? Quite a bit as it turns out including the exact same tattoo which reacts whenever they touch. I actually found myself grinning at some of the antics, they reminded me of my teenage years (without the magical abilities!) and the ins and outs of teenage boyfriend/girlfriend problems. They are also trying to figure out a couple of mysteries here.
Well, Eileen finally turns 18 and yes, she does ultimately find out who her Dad is and why she was never told--but then--and I found myself screaming---NO--the author leaves you hanging--Christine gets kidnapped by the ultimate bad guy--I sure hope the 2nd in this series comes out quickly!!!!!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
The traces of supernatural powers have always been crossing the world of human beings. Many people know about the existence of healers, mind readers, oneiromancers, and wizards. But for centuries their lives have been kept secret and no one has ever heard about Dever, a kingdom of mysteries and magic.
Neither has Eileen Clark, whose life has never been different from the one other teenagers have.
Everything changes the day Eileen receives an invitation to join the ranks of Dever’s students.
Nothing will ever be the same again…
New life, new friends, new enemies…
And love so powerful that no magic will be able to destroy...
