Return to Arethane by Kelly Riad Tour

16-year old Emily has accepted her fate with each weakening beat of her heart, but after her best friend's brother and sister arrive in town and turn out to be more than what they appear, Emily's life is turned upside-down. When their friendship includes confronting wizards who harbor dark secrets and dancing with an elf prince, Emily discovers there are some things still worth living for

This book was a really quick read.
Starting off with our main character having to be a teenager and dealing with an alcoholic mother in a restaurant, my heart went out to the poor girl as she had to usher her mother out the door and duck out of the advances of a cute guy.

I enjoyed the character's each of them seemed to have a life of their own and while I would have loved for there to have been a little more depth to it, I still enjoyed it. Especially the twist about what they were. I really thought they were going to be something else. So it was a pleasant surprise to be thrown for a loop for once.

I do love how the author was able to blend in the mythology so seamlessly to create a beautiful world that left me breathless and wishing that fantasy could become reality.
