"The cold rain drummed the memory of the horrible crash into my mind - mom dead, my hand ruined. Then a year later, coming out of a coma to realize my full-ride scholarship was gone and I'd never play the piano again. But the worst of it was nobody believed me - the voices, someone holding me in the mangled car, mom being ripped away from me. So here I am in Anderson, Wyoming, living with Uncle Connor while Dad's on assignment in Europe. School started and I met Jonathan, amazingly handsome Jonathan. He made me feel like life was beginning again - until I discovered that mom's death wasn't an accident, that a supernatural realm was trying to draw me into a coterie hundreds of years old, and that my friend Eric wanted to destroy me. Not the easiest way to begin my senior year.."
This is the overview of the book entitled Etude written by Melinda Morgan. It's a book that I just finished and could not put it down! I wasn't sure I would like it at first. I will admit, I have not read the Twilight books because I typically don't enjoy that type of reading. But as I started reading, I got completely sucked in! The characters develop and unfold in such a way that you want to know more about them and how their stories intertwine. The "supernatural realm" mentioned in the overview is actually a really interesting topic that I haven't seen discussed very often in young adult books. I was very curious to learn more and see what Melinda's ideas were.
This romance fantasy has received great reviews on Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Amazon. You can find it on book websites as well as an e-version. Etude is the first book in the Birthright Legacy Series. Melinda is currently writing the next book Intermezzo which I cannot wait until it's published to know what happens next!
