With the support of her new friends and a mysterious dark haired, blue-eyed guardian watching her every move, Thea will discover that when it comes to Faey, nothing is what it seems. Will her courage and desire to save this new world from darkness be enough? Or will Thea be the next victim to fall to the dark whispers of fate...

Meet the Author

I live in Surrey, England, a short walk from the beautiful Windsor Park, with my husband Richard and our two gorgeous children Noah and Olivia. For me, writing is nothing short of an addiction and I often find myself sneaking out to my writing shed for just a few minutes, which can often turn into hours of pure, unadulterated bliss catching up with my characters and continuing their story. In-between writing, I teach in a primary school where there’s never a dull moment! I will also often be found Kindle in hand, reading a wide variety of genres but with YA fantasy and paranormal romance at the forefront of my reading list. Although I’m currently writing the second book in the Driel trilogy, other characters involving all things fantasy, paranormal and YA romance are jockeying for position, wanting me to write their story next, so watch this space! It is such a privilege to share my stories with you the reader. Thank you enough for taking the time to find out more about me.

My Review
*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A Good Start to a Series Full of Potential
"Enlightenment" is the first book in the Driel trilogy which has the potential to be an epic story.  The characters are interesting, but lack some depth that will hopefully be revealed in the following books.  A classic story of good versus evil crossed with some snarky duologue and a love triangle "Enlightenment" brings elves into the modern world  The story is at times a bit predictable and there are a few minor editing problems, but it is a tale worth sticking with to the end.  A modern fantasy with some slight sci-fi elements I have to say the teenage nerd in me was rooting for this book and in the end I am not disappointed.  I look forward to the next installment in this series which I feel can only get stronger.
Happy Reading!
