Coexist (Keegan's Chronicles #1) by Julia Crane

Book Description: Sixteen-year-old Keegan is struggling to keep her huge secret from her friends--she's an elf, descended from a long line of elves that live in secrecy alongside humans. In elfin society, mates are predetermined but not allowed to meet until they are eighteen. Against tradition, Keegan's brother Thaddeus told her Rourk's name because his visions warned him she'd need Rourk's protection, especially since Keegan will play a key role in the coming war between the dark and light elves. Rourk finds himself drawn to Keegan's side every time she thinks his name. He wants to talk to her but remains in the shadows, silently guarding her every time she mentally beckons him. A twist of fate thrusts the two of them together when Rourk is forced to step up his protection and make his presence known. An ancient prophecy deeply entwines Keegan's family and the future of their society. Somehow they must find a way to thwart fate and win the battle...without losing Keegan. With war brewing, and dark forces aligning, will Keegan and Rourk ever have the life together that they both desire? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Review: In a world were elves, shape shifter, fairies, witches and warlocks are real, a young woman named Keegan who just so happens to be an elf tries to live a normal life until the day she meets her soul mate. For elves (light and dark) when you turn 18 you get to meet your one true love. You aren't supposed to meet or even know each others names until you both are 18, but Keegan's younger brother Thaddeus told her Rourk's name to keep her safe. She is only supposed to think his name if the situation demands it. But will she even be thinking about him when the time comes? Keegan and Thaddeus turn out to play a big part in a war between the light and dark.Secrets are told, loved ones die, and Keegan's memory gets taken. How far will Rourk go to keep her? The book ended in a way that made me screaming. Poor Rourk, i cannot believe it ended that way. Overall i give this book a 5 out of 5 stars because I liked reading about Keegan and Rourk, they make such a cute couple. I recommend this awesome blossom book to other book addicts like me.
