Description:

Alyssa Coldwell decides to put her destiny as an immortal witch to the side, so she can take the chance to live like a normal girl amongst regular humans before she too is part of the fey world. She wants a break from magic and all the dangerous drama that comes with it, but life doesn't always let you do as you please.

Magic is supposed to be simple - you're either light or dark. But Alyssa is brutally awakened when she learns that life isn't always so simple. There are gray areas, and there is more to being light than simply saying you are.

But magic isn't her only problem, humans have problems as well. When she meets Kane Ice, she finds herself in a situation she's never been before. She's been sheltered by her overly protective mother, so being with a guy hasn't ever been an easy task. Kane makes it impossible not to try... while she can. Though she knows she'll have to leave him once her body turns immortal, she can't help but fall for him.

What's the problem with a witch loving a human? So, so many things. Her world is too dangerous, and her attempt to take a break from it fails miserably when her mother is taken captive. With danger always around her, she knows Kane will never be safe. But it's too hard to let him go.

Kane's not so fragile though, and he refuses to lose the only girl he's ever really cared for. Secrets are a part of Alyssa's life, but she's not the only one with a locked vault full of unspoken truths. When the secrets come out, Alyssa loses all her faith, her will, and her hope.
The deadliest things in life are often the most beautiful... until they strike.

Review:

I've had this book for several years now - and to be honest I think the cover put me off. I know I shouldn't judge books based on their covers, but unfortunately I do sometimes.

So this starts with Alyssa moving to a small town away from her Coven and her well known, respected/feared mum to live amongst humans for a while before she becomes immortal. On her first day she meets Kane Ice, a mystery guy who walks her home to make sure she doesn't become a victim of whatever has been killing young women in the area. They bump into each other often and things become romantic between the pair but Alyssa is wary of falling for a human, especially when her mum goes missing and dark creatures keep popping up in her small town and trying to hurt Alyssa.

I wasn't entirely sure where this book was going to go. I was encouraging the romance between Kane and Alyssa but there was definitely something a little different about Kane. Some of the things that happened or were said just made me think he wasn't entirely human. Things didn't add up and I was really waiting for the moment when we'd find out just what he was. It did take me by surprise in a way.

It does feel like this ended on a bit of a cliffhanger. We have several things that are unanswered and mysteries that got even more intriguing. I was really hoping for the romance to prevail but things took an unexpected turn with that and I just HAVE TO READ BOOK 2! ASAP!
