The start of the story I was enthralled with Lucy a girl with photogenic memory, who was of course a genius and very interesting to watch as she moves through campus life. But then she meets Nat a guy with no memory. Lucy instantly falls for him, but there’s one catch no-one can see him but Lucy. So we watch them bond and soon learn that he’s an angel. This brought me up to 40% of the book and that’s when I stopped being intrigued and excited, as the rest was mostly a love story.

We do have a few surprises when we visit Lucy’s mum and we also get to see where Nat goes when he’s not with Lucy.

The love story itself was  very well written and a beautiful  story at that, but it just wasn’t’ for me as I prefer more action, a man to be a little rough, confusing and dark, but where Nat was a kind, caring loving person who smiled and laughed throughout the book.

 

 Now saying all that I really liked Roman and would definitely read a story from his perspective, loved his aggression. (I know it’s so wrong).

 

 Anyway overall an easy read. So if you like paranormal with the love story taking the lead then feather is for you.

Featured Author Elle Jacklee ~ Tree of Mindala

Synopsis:

Miranda Moon’s vivid imagination has gotten her into trouble more times than she can count. This time, she’s been suspended from school. So her straight-laced younger brother, Marcus, blames her when they’re relegated to their late grandparents’ old cabin over Halloween weekend. But when Miranda finds a curious trinket, they’re mysteriously whisked away to Wunderwood, where magic flows through the trees and everyone already knows their family name. A place even Miranda never imagined.

Just as they arrive, a sinister warlock, Thornton Crow, is freed from a long banishment. He resumes his deadly agenda to find The Tree of Mindala, the source of all the realm’s magic. As Miranda and Marcus discover branches of their own family tree that they hadn’t even known existed, they learn that Thornton has a score to settle with anyone in their bloodline. Especially them… Though justice has always had a way of being naturally restored in Wunderwood, Thornton’s latest evil deed just may be the tipping point.

When Miranda discovers her own role in Thornton’s release, she knows it’s up to her to stop him from stealing not just magic, but also hope. With travel companions that could as easily be foes as friends, and only the cryptic words of a prophecy to guide her, Miranda must decide if she can carry out the task that will either save Wunderwood… or doom it forever.

About the Author:

Bio:

My mantra is “Life is short.” I believe in making every moment count. Purple is my favorite color. I think black cats are good luck. My professional titles have included software programmer, inside sales rep, and bilingual customer service rep. But my favorite titles are mother, wife, and author.

I’m the author of the Tree of Mindala, a middle grade fantasy. It’s the first in my Wunderwood series.

My love of reading began with classics such as L. Frank Baum’s Oz books and C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. The endless hours of enjoyment that they, and countless others, gave me sparked my passion for writing. I hope that my stories will help instill in children a lifelong love of reading as well as the knowledge that imagination has no limits.

I am currently working on the second installment of the Wunderwood series. I live in Wisconsin with my husband and two young sons, none of whom are in a hurry to grow up. And that’s just fine with me!
