Fans of Twilight will enjoy this novel.


Two Forests, One in the land of elves, Emralusia and one in the human world.  Two forests where elves, dark wolves and of course, humans.  Wow! What a combination.
I read the books The Mers, She Speaks to Angels and The Day the Flowers Died.   Ms. Blackwelder writes in the fantasy world and sometimes we need to get away from the real world and enter the fantasy world.  They are quick reads and if you like the supernatural and such, along with romance then you will like Ms. Blackwelder's books. She has a good way of writing.   In this book, you get two different worlds with a world of Elfin Romance, a forbidden love. I liked the setting of the quietness of Colorado, deep in the forest.   No one ever would have thought there would be a  hidden world for over fifty thousand years.  Michael Cole, who lives in Colorado has an attraction with Evelyn.  This leads him on an adventure, even though this is a forbidden love, it will change their lives, perhaps forever more.    They never knew they would have to fight for their lives and love  through a strong dark, evil that surrounds them.  Ms. Blackwelder puts a very intriguing story on how elves and humans join, fall in love and fights for what they want.  The book was just a little slow at the beginning but after that the book speeds up and the interest starts. Ms. Blackwelder seems to put her all including her heart, soul and her imagination into her books.

Enter the world of elves and humans, love and romance and let your imagination go.  It will bring back those days of young love.

I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
