Summary: (From Goodreads)
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 Opinion: 
I love me a good lovestory :D Which this was. Including some action, because of the big fight :)
You can feel with the main character coz she is a normal girl, just with special powers. And therefor it`s a good book. The reason it didn`t get full pot with me. Was because 2 times I was like.. Everything was way to much fairytale like descriped, so I was like.. yeah right.. But other wise it was really well written and I can`t wait to continue reading this series :D 
Coz the ending was such a cliffhanger. Me need more :D

I gave the book 5 out of 6 stars

Coz it`s a short book, but they managed so well to get in such a good story, background etc. They remembered having a beginning, middle and end :) Which can be dificult in short stories.
