More About the Author
Although Suzy is a Yorkshire lass at heart, she left her home town of Rotherham, UK, to move to Portugal with her family when she was ten.
The Algarve continues to be her home, where she lives with her childhood sweetheart husband Michael and their menagerie of cats and dogs.
Suzy's career began soon after completing her A levels when she was offered the position of trainee journalist for a local English newspaper. Her love of writing developed and a few years later she moved on to become assistant editor for the region's largest English language publisher. Since then she has also worked as the editor of one of the Algarve's most loved monthly lifestyle magazines. Early in 2010 however, Suzy began working as a full time author. She has since completed ten novels - The Raven Saga trilogy, The Morgan Sisters series, Forever Fredless, And Then There Was You and Stormy Summer. She has also released her two YA series as ebook boxed sets.

firstly, the main character is 13, she has just come out of childhood and she gets involved with a 17 year old boy, nearly a grown man. this decision by the author just put me off of those two characters and the way they interact. not to mention the relationship progressed to 'love' very quickly. maybe I'm too old to buy into that idea.
the other issue that I had the most trouble getting over was the inaccurate mythological terms. In the book shape shifters are called changelings, changelings are something completely different. halflings, traditionally are things such as hobbits, dwarves and gnomes, here are actually not small creatures, it is used to describe half animal half human beings such as satyrs, centaurs etc. every time inaccurate terms were used I would be ripped out of my immersion in the story, a shame really as it could have been much more enjoyable for me.
lastly, I often noticed question marks placed at the end of a statement, completely throwing my inner reading voice as then I would phrase it like a question instead of a statement.
the story is quite interesting and engaging, be it a bit predictable and convenient in parts, and my complaints aside I did read both books and follow the story not to mention it was a bargain. great for a new author but I hope she can improve in some ways and get even better.
When you do find out, you are presented with the fantastic world that Suzy Turner has cleverly crafted, filled with evil witches, vampires, changelings - the whole range of wild supernatural beasts and beings. The plot thickens, you worry for Lilly's well-being, and can't stop reading till the last page. It's a good thing this is the first installment of a series and that more is coming!
First, this is a tale about self-discovery. If one were to remove entirely the supernatural elements, what you'd be left with is the story of a young girl on the verge of growing up, who, after escaping terrible circumstances, discovers her roots, real family, and ultimately herself. And it all happens very quickly from where the story starts. This kind of topic can ride on the back of just about any foundation and be successful, if done well. It intrigues us all, the idea of going from a dysfunctional family, social awkwardness and rejection, to everything positive-love, family, and acceptance. But now let's add the mystical underpinnings. In addition to everything else, our main character discovers unimaginable things about herself and family, things most people would not accept or believe. It's a ride from one extreme to the next that most adolescents could not handle.
Secondly, this is a story about family issues. Our main character, Lilly, is raised by an unloving mother and estranged father. The father, we later find out, had been manipulated and almost killed by an evil I will leave unnamed here.Read more ›
Lilly is stuck in England with an unloving mother and a barely there father, so when both of her parents disappear, Lilly gets uprooted and moved to her grandfather who she's never met halfway across the world in British Columbia, Canada. Lilly is in for a lot of suprises though, when everything and I mean everything she thought she knew about her life gets turned upside down!
This story honestly gripped me from the first page and held on tight until the last page. My only complaint about this book was that it wasn't long enough, I got to the last sentance and was devastated that the story was over, but thrilled to learn that this is the first in a series. Book 2 is due out this September, and you better believe i'll be counting down the days until I can get my hands on this book. I honestly could sing my praises for this book for days, but instead i'm going to give you a word of advice and tell you to go pick up this book and read it, I promise you will not want to miss out on this series!
