Editorial Reviews


"The mythology is beautiful and the story line is believable. I really felt for Keegan. "Coexist" is a quick, fun read that mirrors mythical creatures acting like normal teenagers. The plot line is interesting and noteworthy. I will definitely follow this series." - Reviewed by Sylvia H. for Readers Favorite

About the Author

Julia Crane is the author of the YA paranormal fiction novels: Keegan's Chronicles, Mesmerized and Eternal Youth. Julia was greatly encouraged by her mother to read and use her imagination, and she's believed in magical creatures since the day her grandmother first told her an Irish tale. Julia has traveled far and wide to many of the places her grandmother told her about, gaining inspiration from her journeys to places like Nepal, Cyprus, Sri Lanka, Italy, France and many more. And who knows? Maybe the magical creatures she writes about are people she met along the way. Julia Crane has a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. Although she's spent most of her life on the US east coast, she currently lives in Dubai with her husband and three children.

Coexist, the first novel in a planned series, and an outright first novel ever by Julia Crane, is a paranormal romance with an Irish flair. It's a tale of elves and love and destiny, the struggle between light and dark, and the consequences of war. And yes, part of the novel - a very important part, by the way - does take place in Ireland, though the main setting is the US.

The main characters Coexist is concerned with are Keegan, a sixteen-year-old elf, and her intended mate, Rourk, who's a bit older than her. Emphasizing romance, Julia Crane's elves are more human-like than one might expect, appearing normal enough to blend in with human society. Sure, they are shorter than other humans, but they don't have a green skin-tone or twelve-inch-tall pointed ears or anything like that.

Crane's conceit is that elves are unusually attractive, which makes great fodder for a romance novel, of course. And also, Crane's elves share a trait in common with some old-world cultures: their mates are pre-selected for them, almost from birth, and are guaranteed to invoke in each other the proper amount of love and romantic chemistry.

But they aren't allowed to meet until they are eighteen.

Different elves handle this sense of destiny in slightly different ways. Keegan has decided to use her youth to date a few human boys, though never seriously, just for fun and as a way to kill time waiting to meet her intended mate.

Rourk, on the other hand, has done no such dating, preferring to focus himself entirely on waiting for his intended mate. Given that he is a warrior, he uses a fair amount of his "spare energy" in combat training.

What I loved about this book was the representation of the characters. Especially how the main character, Keegan, matures through out the story. There's romance, war, and supernatural all thrown in to make this incredible story. I was hooked from the first chapter,i'm hoping and waiting for a sequel.
I would highly recommend it to everyone of all ages looking for a good read!

This book had great promise from reading the description, however, the book itself was just sad. First of all, I read the 1 one star review there was when I bought this, but then disregarded it because there were so many good reviews. What a mistake. Seriously, are those people crazy? This was not good literature! The main character was spoiled, bratty, obnoxious, shallow, kind of a hoe-bag (for lack of a better term) and just generally immature. When her father told her that there was a war that could decide the fate of her race and that he was chosen to lead them into battle and her 12 year old brother would save them all, she was just like "alright, can I go to my room now?" I was shocked by her casual reaction and kind of disappointed that she had no purpose in the "final battle." The main character should always be a major player!

Okay, so I completely loved the idea of elves in modern day times, and especially the idea of light elves fighting a war against dark elves, however this novel does it laughably. The war was like a weekend at a camp ground and the actual fighting was just sad. Everyone just flies to Ireland, sets up tents and waits for the fighting to beginning. And when it does begin, it's just everyone slashing at everyone else. Nothing too exciting. Then at night they just hang out and eat cake like hundreds of their race didn't just die. Oh, and of course it makes perfect sense that everyone at Keegan's school is also a creature of the light and because a shape-shifter who can read minds, they're all going to show up, right?

*Sigh* The only redeeming quality of this book was the love interest. Rourk was SO great.

Format: Paperback
On the surface, Keegan is your typical 16-year-old girl. She spends her time hanging out with her friends, shopping, texting and dating. But Keegan is an elf. She is really living a secret life, trying to fit in with the humans, all the while just passing the time until she turns 18 so she can meet her chosen mate.

I liked this book. I thought this was a fun story. I liked that we got to meet both Keegan and Rourk and see the story from both of their point of views even though they did not get to meet right away. I thought the plot made a great story. The characters were fun and overall likeable. This is the first story I have read focusing on elves, and I liked the elfin world that the author created.

One thing I really did not like about this book was the overall length. The book was short, and it just felt too rushed. I would have loved to see the main characters been given more depth. Some of the supporting characters, such as Anna and Donald, seemed almost a passing thought. You get their point of view very quickly one or two times in the story, and that is really all you get to see of them. It would have been nice to have a little more background on them as well. There were too many scenes that also felt too rushed, and I would have liked to have them elaborated on as well.

The other thing that bothered me was the very quick changes in point of view. There was no transition between the thoughts of one person to the next. Sometimes I would have to actually back up a couple of sentences as I was reading because all of the sudden I realized that the point of view had changed, and then changed again, without warning.

Overall, I liked this story; I just wanted more of it.
