Enlightenment (The Driel Trilogy #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
After losing everything, all seventeen-year-old Thea wanted was to be a normal teenager. Instead, she was attacked by a mysterious creature she thought only existed in fairy tales. Now thrown into the unknown realm of Faey, Thea is forced to determine the difference between reality and fantasy, in a world ruled by a dark elite and a society wracked by intolerance and prejudice.
With the support of her new friends and a mysterious dark haired, blue-eyed guardian watching her every move, Thea will discover that when it comes to Faey, nothing is what it seems. Will her courage and desire to save this new world from darkness be enough? Or will Thea be the next victim to fall to the dark whispers of fate...

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Enlightenment (The Driel Trilogy #1) “Oh my goddess,” I whispered, releasing a breath. I had such a sense of foreboding.”

This was a YA fantasy story featuring elves.

Thea was an okay character, and I didn’t blame her for having reservations when she was told that she was really an elf. She did take the time to listen to people though, and she seemed quite happy to try and help the elves in their plight.

The storyline in this was about Thea learning about the elves and what was going on in their kingdom. We got quite a fast romance and a bit of a love triangle, and a bit of sci-fi mixed in with the fantasy with the introduction of a mad-scientist sort of character. I did find the dialogue a bit stiff at times though, and it seemed to take a while for the book to find its flow.

The ending to this was pretty good, whilst leaving us knowing that the story will continue in another book.
