ShimmerSpell By Kimberly Spencer

Shimmerspell (The Shimmer Trilogy, #1)Name: Shimmerspell
Author: Kimberly Spencer
Rating: 2 out of 5
When sixteen-year-old Jensen Meadows finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient faerie war, she soon learns that faeries aren't made of sparkly goodness. They're vicious. And worse, they're after her. With the help of Liam Casey, she delves into their world to find her missing sister and begins to suspect that her whole life has been nothing more than a faerie tale.
But maybe some truths should never be revealed...

My Review:
This book confused me so much I no longer enjoyed reading it, also the ending was so guessable as it pretty much gave the end way half way through the book, But I shall read then second book but only because I have it, lets just sat if I didn't have it it wouldn't really bother me, this book was free on kindle which I'm really happy about because if I would have brought this book I'd be slightly annoyed!

Coexist By Julia Crane

Name: Coexist
Coexist (Keegan's Chronicles, #1)Author: Julia Crane
Rating: 3 out of 5
Sixteen-year-old Keegan is struggling to keep her huge secret from her friends--she's an elf, descended from a long line of elves that live in secrecy alongside humans. In elfin society, mates are predetermined but not allowed to meet until they are eighteen. Against tradition, Keegan's brother Thaddeus told her Rourk's name because his visions warned him she'd need Rourk's protection, especially since Keegan will play a key role in the coming war between the dark and light elves. 
Rourk finds himself drawn to Keegan's side every time she thinks his name. He wants to talk to her but remains in the shadows, silently guarding her every time she mentally beckons him. A twist of fate thrusts the two of them together when Rourk is forced to step up his protection and make his presence known. An ancient prophecy deeply entwines Keegan's family and the future of their society. Somehow they must find a way to thwart fate and win the battle...without losing Keegan. With war brewing, and dark forces aligning, will Keegan and Rourk ever have the life together that they both desire?

My Review:
Really like the idea of this book and the fact it was about elves mades me want to read it even more but I didn't get on as well as I had hoped I would with this book, maybe it was because it was to modern for me as throughout the book it kept going 'Then Keegan logged out of her tumblr' and it just got so annoying as it even said what type of computer and phone she had! Will I read the other books in the Keegan Chronicles, maybe but I don't know as I'm not a huge fan of Cranes writting.

Betrayal By Mayandree Michel

Name: Betrayal
Betrayal (The Descendants #1)Author: Mayandree Michel
Rating: 5 out of 5
Where there is love and power, there is always... betrayal.

At seventeen, Cordelia is an ordinary teen with an extraordinary and frightening secret. A secret that induces vivid dreams which she not only experiences true love, but crippling fear while barely escaping with her life each night.
After a life altering event, Cordelia has an unexpected encounter with Evan, the mysterious boy from her dreams, who reveals who and what she is, a descendant of the Greek gods. At that moment everything she knows of her world is a lie, and she must leave the present and go into the past to assume the role she was put on this earth for, safeguarding her ancient empire amidst evil forces that toil hastily to destroy it.
In a race against time, Cordelia must decide if she is truly a part of this dangerous world, or risk defying the gods, and ultimately lose the boy who has put a claim on her heart.

My Review:
This book had everything in it, Greek Gods, Vampires, Were Shifters, Love, Forbidden Love and Betrayal! I loved the idea of this book even though it was quite confusing at the start, also it's the first in the Descendants Triology (I think it's going to be a triology anyway) which means one amazing thing, theres going to be more books! I fell in love with Evan, Nikolas and maybe evenb Victor. I believe this is Michels first book and so far she is looking like she is going to be an amazing new author!
