Ava Green has made a name for herself in the real estate world by reconditioning old, historical homes with her partner and friend Jeff. But her newest project, a three-story Victorian in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, promises to be her biggest moneymaker yet. And one she’s undertaking on her own. During her first walk-through of the house, however, she discovers a locked door, and a skeleton key that seems to appear out of nowhere. Unlocking the door, she is transported to a mystical world of fae and mythickal creatures and meets the King of the Morna. The sovereign of the Dark Elves.
King Finn Sylcan has searched for the one who can bring the magick back to his world, Edra, for eons. An old prophecy told of a female of both Dark and Light elven descent, a hybrid both Calim and Morna. It is said she is the only one who can repair the damage the war between the Dark and Light kingdoms caused. But after searching for so long, Finn never dreamed that she’d just show up outside his palace walls. Or that she’d be his mate.
The blurb to this book really caught my eye and I was excited to get the opportunity to read the book. Author Lia Davis does a fine job at making the reader feeling like they are part of this Fae world.
I loved the whole concept of the book with the primary and secondary characters being interesting and well thought out. For me, Kellam, Finn's head of security is the character that really caught my attention and I would love to know more about him in future books.
The elements to this book are perfect but what was lacking for me was time to fully develop the storyline to keep the reader spellbound. It felt too rushed. For this reason I give it 3 STARS.

While writing was initially a way escape from real world drama, Lia now makes her living creating worlds filled with magic, mystery, romance, and adventure so that others can leave real life behind for a few hours at a time.
