Twyla Shift: Blood and Magic by S.M.
(I was given this book for free by the author on a read-to-review basis)
Anne is 19 and at university. All her life she's had these dreams that show her the future, the main problem being that she often doesn't realise when they will happen until it's too late.
Now Anne is having a repeating dream, which usually means that something really bad is going to happen, and she's on edge because of it.
Recognising some events from one of her dreams, she narrowly escapes a fire in her chemistry lab, but unfortunately that's not the end of Anne's troubles.
Coming across a man on campus after the fire, she feels a strange pull towards him, and they end up
leaving together. They don't get very far though when something happens to make him panic, and he pulls Anne through some kind of vortex.
Waking up somewhere strange and feeling really sick, Anne finds out that she is now in a different reality. A shadow world that magic-users can 'shift' into at will.
Now Anne must find out how the hell to get home, and why this man kidnapped her in the first place. Although she's still got loads more trouble coming her way in the form of witches, werewolves, and vampires, and new information about herself that she never thought possible.
I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. There is so much going on, and so many new things being thrown at Anne that there's never a dull moment, and the romance/erotica when it comes into it is hot! Anne is a likable, slightly feisty character, and she comes out with some great lines at times, and I really loved the whole concept of the shifting into the shadow-world.
Overall this is a great paranormal/fantasy/romance read, and I am hoping that this will turn into a series! 8.5 out of 10.
