Thank You to the author for providing me with an advanced readers copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Candy has just lost her father, leaving her with her step-mother and step-brother who is entirely too co-dependent upon his mother. Candy just wants to go to art school, do her sketches and maybe meet a nice guy who doesn't expect sex on the first date just because her name is Candy Cane, a name she is forever hearing stripper and sex jokes about. 

Liam is looking for a place to live that is within walking distance to campus when he comes across an ad for a flat to rent, within walking distance to both the college campus and his night job as a ghost tour guide. 

The flat turns out to be Candy's ground floor apartment. Liam and Candy hit it off immediately and become great friends. Whilst accompanying Liam one evening on one of his ghost tours, a large rock falls from the top off a building missing candy by mere inches. Candy is convinced it was an accident and there is nothing to worry about Liam however, as an architect student realises that the rock that fell is not part of the building it fell from and is convinced it was done on purpose and someone was out to hurt or even kill Candy.  

One day when sketching in the cemetery as she often did Candy gets the feeling she is no longer alone, suddenly she hears dogs. Having a great fear of dogs ever since childhood Candy takes off running. She prays the wind will make her run faster and it does. All of a sudden, Candy finds she is no longer in the cemetery, it would seem she is no longer even in Savannah. 

In a strange new place she is discovered by a beautiful and well-built man, he agrees to keep Candy safe and take her with him to his village. 
Where has Candy ended up and what does this realm have in store for her?

So lets first discuss the plot of this book. The overall story was very interesting and I enjoyed it. However, It did confuse me a little, the first part of the book talk about the gods and goddesses and a game they plan to play using humans. Then throughout the rest of the book, this is not mentioned again. Although I understand this is a five book series so maybe it will go into more details later on. 

This book was a slow burner but once it got going I was unable to put it down, it was a real page-turner. I found the plot to be really intense and complex. Overall I really enjoyed the story and cannot wait for the next instalment. 

The characters are well written, you have your good guys and your bad guys. The good guys are really likeable and you find yourself rooting for them and the bad guys you dislike and hope they are caught out. You can see why each character is there, they each have their own role to play within the story. 

I really hope we find out what Mark is looking for and if he is the one behind the attempts on Candy's life. Also, I look forward to seeing how Candy and Thornes's relationship develops over the next few books, personally I'm hoping for a happily ever after. 

I did find a few mistakes within the book for example sentences that didn't make sense and if reworded would sound better. ("Liam was beside himself with the job she had done that gave her a big hug") I believe this should have read ("Liam was beside himself with the job she had done that he gave her a big hug")
However, this did not take away from the reading pleasure.

I found the book easy to read and really enjoyed it, I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
