Beckoning Light by Alyssa Rose Ivy

As Charlotte steps through the gate, she has a strong feeling that nothing will ever be the same again.

Moving back to South Carolina after three years away, Charlotte knows she's going to have to face people from her past and adjust to a new high school, but she's completely unprepared for what else waits for her in Charleston.

Drawn through an old garden gate, Charlotte discovers a hidden world where she meets Calvin, a boy to whom she is inexplicably attracted. As Charlotte is pulled deeper into this hidden world, it's up to her older brother Kevin to rescue her. No matter how hard Kevin tries, the rescue depends upon Charlotte fighting her intense feelings for Calvin while mastering a set of abilities that she has only just discovered she possesses

Got it as a Review Request!

I was a little iffy when I started to read this, It was about two siblings who find another world, and it was written in such a raw way that for most people it wouldn't work. Luckily it didn't effect the story at all, in fact, the story was so good it seemed to add to it, as if it was written by one of the main characters' in a rush to get everything written down as it happened. There are no polished edges like most novels have and it was not long before worry turned into anticipation as I found my self addicted to turning the pages and finding out what happened next.
This novel had just about everything in it a great story needs to survive. Love , secrets death and intrigue all in one action packed package. I definitely cannot wait to get my hands on the next in the trilogy.

Rating: 4
Favorite Charrie: Samantha, gotta love a girl who can kick but and take names, especially when a guy thinks girls can't fight.
