The Rings of Faolan-Emeralds by Kristal Dawn Harris

Destiny calls under the moon's pale light
Two hearts collide, the timing not right

They fight, they love as danger boils deep
Join Elijah and Elise as they fight for their lives
And forge a love so strong it cannot be denied Read more of this blog post »

Published in 2016. A YA novel. This is book three of the Reckoners Series. I couldn’t get my hands on the first two books but I read book three without a problem. I’m sure a lot happened in "Steelheart" and "Firefight" but nothing in this book begged me to read the earlier books.

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
