A WEEK OF QUINN DAY SEVEN!!

Its the LAST day!!!
Are you still alive after all that awesomeness??? ;)
 
Today is a review for Quinn's first book in her new series, Elfin!
 

Before tonight Cassie Tate’s biggest concerns were whether she could pass Algebra and how she was going to keep Elora, her best friend, from dressing her in a skimpy fairy costume for Halloween. Her feet were firmly planted in suburban reality and she had no reason to believe her life would be anything but that of a typical teenager. That is until tonight, when Cassie saw something that no human was ever supposed to see; in the blink of an eye she was thrown into the world of the Light and Dark Elves.
He comes from a realm where light and dark have fought for millennia. He is of a race known to humans only in myths and legends. The darkness that lives inside him is a part of both who and what he is and it makes him the most gifted spy and assassin in the history of his time. His life is not his own; he lives in the service of the Dark Elf King. He slays who he must, has mercy on no one, is relentless in his hunt, and never tires of seeing his prey fall. He is Triktapic, assassin, spy, most feared of the Dark Elves.
Now, in the midst of his King’s complicated plans to expand the Dark Elves’ holdings into the mortal realm, for the first time, Trik finds his loyalties divided. For no Elf, Dark or Light, can turn away from their Chosen.
Unbeknownst to the mortal realm, the battle between Light and Dark is being brought to their doorstep. The only one who can keep it at bay holds darkness in his heart like a lover, and the one who can sway that heart must decide if she can look beyond his black past, beyond his evil nature and see the man he is destined to be.
The questions must be asked, does love really cover a multitude of sins? Can true love actually conquer all or will his darkness consume those around him until all that stands is an assassin with the blood of the mortal realm on his hands?


Do you know what I have to say about this series?
If you're thinking along the lines of 'oh my flipping monkeys' then you would be correct!
*ding* we have a winner!

Okay, so in Elfin, we're entered into a world that is like ours, but different.
How is it different? Think about realm of the fae on a different plane that can come and go into the human realm at will.
Yup, THAT different.

Now, unlike a lot of Elf/Fairy/Fairy Tale books that are supremely annoying and all bubbly joy joy goodness, Elfin, to me, takes a dark look onto the Fae. Making them either the envisionment of the good in people, or the wicked.
They're not perfect, even if they are perfectly beautiful, and it lends a whole 'human' aspect to their personalities that is really refreshing.
Don't get me wrong, they're not just humans with pointy ears. Quinn makes her Elfin in a way that still holds all the tales of the fae true (and not the Disney version. If you don't know any dark stories about the fae, then you don't know the fae), but at the same time still hold a flame of hope and the ability to change within them that makes them appear human.
Confused? Well, sorry about that! lol

Elfin is an action-packed, emotionally turmoils, slap yo momma from all the what-the-ef-ery type of book!
You'll be thrown into a beautifully described world, hurt along with the characters, love, bleed, and feel betrayed.
You will want to jump into the fray to save the characters you've fallen for. You'll want to slap them, hug them, laugh with them, cuss them out and cry with them.
Why? Because they're perfectly imperfect.

Now, don't forget that this is the LAST DAY to enter into the Giveaway! If there's some entries that you haven't done yet, then I suggest you do!
