Blog Tour and Review: Elfin- Quinn Loftis

Summary: 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 question 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?

Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. Is is the second novel by Quinn Loftis that I have been lucky enough to read and I will confess she writes both paranormal and fantasy very well. I enjoyed reading about the elves because they are not as "over played" as some and are fairly new creatures for me. I also liked how at the beginning of each chapter there are diary entries by different characters, that lets you in to their heads and see how they are feeling at that time. I would probably saw this book is YA bordering on NA, there were no sex scenes  or swearing it hopefully book two gets more steamy. I also really enjoyed the sub plot about addiction, it made things interesting. I like Cassie because she was "pure" and then does a 180 degree turn because of the rapture and becomes a rapture whore. (If you have read the book you will know what I mean). I also feel like she showed immense  amounts of emotions where her chosen didn't. He only showed emotion when absolutely necessary. Trik made me mad with his crazy antics but I feel like he did redeem himself. I'm excited to see what happens next. 
I know that this will be another hit series by Quinn Loftis. I would recommend it to fantasy lovers or lovers of this author. I will definitely be carrying in with the series.
