Tab Bennett is normal — unusually, excessively normal. Her job as a bank teller is safe and secure, her grandfather finally let her move out of the house (at least to the cottage at the end of the driveway), and her fiance fiercely guards her chastity, whether she wants him to or not.

It's something of a shock, then, when Tab learns that she is the elvish queen of the fabl

Tab Bennett & the Inbetween starts out with an incredibly fascinating scenario. Tab's sisters have been getting killed, one a month for the last three months. They disappear into the dark forest surrounding their familial home and Tab starts getting visions of their deaths. Only they don't come in time to save them, just to know when to go look for their bodies buried somewhere out there.

On the day of her last sister's funeral the world as Tab knows it comes crashing

Tab Bennett has lived her entire life without knowing who she really is. Then she starts having visions of a world that has been hidden from her. A world in which dark elves are trying to kill her, and the people she thought were her family are actually guardians, sent to protect her.

After her mother, the queen of the Elves was killed, Tab was sent to the human world, away from those who meant to do her harm. Now in her twenties and coming into her powers, her enemies are stepping up their effor

An interesting story that, to my mind, showed promise in a lot of areas. The beginning was really well written, and left me feeling like I was there. It drew me into the story quickly, and had I been reading this in a bookstore I would have left with it.

I was a more than a little hesitant when the love triangle started to develop. I'm deeply sick of the same old love triangle, and don't even get me started on the topic of instant love. When Tab when flying across the lawn into Alexander's arms,

This book has a gripping open. I dare you to read the first paragraph and NOT be pulled in by it:

While my sister Rivers was dying, I was planting crocus bulbs in my front yard.

While she was fighting for her life, I was thinking about how pretty the purple and yellow flowers would look poking up through the snow when the spring came. While she was gasping for air I was singing along with the radio to some stupid top 40 song I’d be embarrassed to admit I know. I was tired and achy. I saw the dirt

1 star. DNF @ page 99 (chapter 11)

I gave this book a 100 pages worth of chances. It had its small moments, but in the end, I was wondering if this book was over yet.

Ignoring the annoying punctuation problems (e.g. missing commas, and semi-colon abuse), none of the characters endeared themselves to me. I couldn't find any of them interesting. The fiance was annoying and boring and so was the main character. It didn't help that our first introduction to the fiance was 'how hot he was.' Yep. Not ve

This book seems like it was originally meant to be YA, even the title is a bit childish. But somewhere along the way the author changed her mind, realized YA books about a normal modern girl who discover’s she actually a Fairie Princess are a dime a dozen, and decided to make our heroine a full grown woman. This would have been great. Although I love YA, it always seems a little crazy to me that some suburban teenager is expected to rule over an entire race of a magical people that she had no id ...more

Tab Bennett and the Inbetween pulled me in from the very start. I enjoyed the realism portrayed for the situation. What would you do if you were in your 20′s and found out that you were actually an Elvin princess??? Many fantasy books have a radical reaction of pure acceptance from the beginning and sometimes that reaction perfectly fits the character or the story and it flows with the book – and that is great. Tab is not that kind of person.

This book had a very promising premise, enough for you to want to pick it up and dive into reading. But sadly after a few chapters, my interest in the story just slowly withered away. It didn't hold enough interest for me to have the energy to finish it. Maybe I gave up too easily? I don't know. But I do hope it falls into another reader's hands that would find it more appealing than I did.

I heard about this book from my friend Lee at She-Wolf Reads. After I read it I asked myself, “What took me so long?” I absolutely loved it. I loved everything about it. From Tab to her family to her world.

Tab is outgoing, smart, stubborn, and she’s strong. She’s been devastated by the murders of her three sisters all in the space of three months. She learns she’s really an Elvish princess. Her male cousins are either her guard or her soon to be advisors. Her grandf

This is a hard one to review. There was so much I loved about the story of Tab Bennett as she learned the truth of her world, but there were also a lot of distractions. The first 4 chapters were a bit slow, but that's not really uncommon. Stick with it. Once the story starts rolling, it's hard to put down.

First the good things: The characters. They are likable and richly drawn. I never completely understood Robbin or his motives, and I questioned Alex's innocence the whole way to the end, but I
