Book Blast: Keegan's Chronicles

Keegan's Chronicles Trilogy Set
Books 1-3
Coexist: 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.  

Conflicted:  Keegan, is only alive now due to Black Magic, and her bond with her Chosen is broken. She cannot remember Rourk at all.  For the first time, she feels like a normal teenager. She is dating Donald, her long-time crush, and everything seems perfect. But Rourk still feels their bond, and despairs for the woman he was always meant to love.  Keegan's best friend Anna is determined to find a way to use her powers to return Keegan's bond, no matter what it takes. The question is does Keegan even want it?

Consumed:  Keegan has dealt with a lot over the last two years: Death, black magic and the loss of her bond to her chosen mate. But on her eighteenth birthday, the bond with Rourk returns.  Now, Keegan faces her hardest decision. Tradition requires elves marry at eighteen. If she accepts the path laid out for her, she will be spared a lifetime of physical and emotional pain. But will that life ever really be her own?

Quicky Reviews #1

I have a few books and audiobooks I want to review before the end of the year.  They aren't going to count toward any challenges.  They are really short.  I thought a sentence or two might do and so Quicky Reviews was born.  
There are just some books you can sum up in a sentence or two!

OOPPSSSS!!! What's going on?

Hey everyone.  I just wanted to take a minute from my crazy busy life to let you all know that I am still here and thinking about you and the blog.  I just have been burning the candle at both ends.  It was not intentional at all.  I just woke up one day and realized 3 weeks (almost a month) had passed and I was neglecting a few million things.
