Colour Wielders

Colour Wielders (Heirs of the Magykal Realm, #1) 
 Behind the Faerying Mysts, hidden from Mortal eyes, is a land where gods and creatures of myth and legend dwell. And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess is hidden away.
Quinn Sinclair lives an ordinary life with her less-than-loving mother in Conifer, Colorado, clueless of her true nature. On the night of her birthday, a staggering betrayal sends her life spinning out-of-control. As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she is transported into a Magykal battle-forever changing her life.
Arik Morgaine-Demigod bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm-tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans. Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers. Can the two of them come together and save the Magykal Realm from being destroyed by the Darkest of Magyks? 


****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
This book starts out with Quinn sleeping with a guy who she thought was supposed to be the one because she saw it in a vision, right away things go bad her "dead" father shows up and drama ensues. Quinn finds out that she is part of a hidden fae world and lots of people want her power, we meet Arik who want to turn her over to her enemies but finds himself drawn to her and wanting her. There's fighting, lust, betrayal, gods, demigods, fairies and lots of magyks. First I am sorry if my synopsis is a little bit short and vague but there is so much going in this book and I don't want to give away any spoilers. I will start with the bad in this book, there was a whole lot going on, I felt like I was on information overload at times. The way we were given information was weird at times as well, the story would be moving along at a great pace, then it would stop and we would be given background information. This stop and go made it a little hard to get into the story at times. Now the good, there were a couple different mythologies mixed into this story so it was nice to see a variety. The plot line was good and I thought the author had some original ideas. Overall this is a good book and a nice start to a new series it will be interesting to see where the author will take it.
