Review - "Daughter of the Red Dawn" - Alicia Michaels

These are dark times in the land of Fallada, and I fear that they will only continue to grow darker. Only the return of those we’ve lost will even the score.
It will begin with first line of the prophecy, which foretells of a red sun over the desert sky…
--Adrah, Queen of the Fae

On the outside, seventeen year-old Selena McKinley is like any other teenage girl. Yet Selena has always felt as if she doesn’t belong and is counting the days to graduation and her freedom from the small town that makes her feel so out of place, when the arrival of a stranger turns her world upside down. Selena will learn just how different she is and the truth of where she comes from.
A lost princess, they call her, the catalyst for a war involving a world that Selena was taken from as a child. An evil queen obsessed with her own beauty with a plan to enslave the human race.…the notion seems so silly, yet Selena knows in her heart that it is true. Then there is Titus, the shape shifter whose blue eyes and claims of destiny hold her heart captive. Can Selena find the strength to do what she must while following her heart?

My Review:

Selena always felt like she didn't belong and is just counting down the days until she graduates and she can move on.  Things start going strange for her when a mysterious guy shows up and before she knows it, she is thrown into a war amongst the the supernatural and she is one of seven lost princess' that will change the fate of things.  Can Selena believe that this all true and change the way things are or will she turn back and return to her "normal" life?

I am a huge fan of Alicia Micheals and this book did no disappoint!  I was instantly connected to Selena and was pulled into her life where things aren't always easy but yet she is strong willed and pulls throw things.  I was pulled into the fairy world where all creatures are threatened but yet there are the one's that want things to change.

I thought the book was well written and the flow was perfect.  I didn't feel like there were any gaps in the story and wasn't left wanting more (well of course I want to see what happens next but you know what I mean LOL).

Definitely a must add to your collection!
