Vala believes she is just an ordinary teenager trying to find her place in the world with her closest friends, Jelly and Max. But her splendid normality is quickly turned upside down when she happens upon Elvar, a handsome fae boy that Vala finds impossible to resist. The connection between Vala and Elvar is electric but their euphoric bliss quickly comes crashing down as Vala discovers the truth about her family, revealing who she really is.
Little does Vala know, this truth would be the catalyst for her parent’s disappearance and the reason for the darkness hovering over the fae realm. With friendship and love as her only allies, Vala must face her fears in order to triumph against the evil that has beckoned her.
You'd better be prepared to put everything on hold as Denise Dowdell-Stent's enthralling Young Adult Fantasy will keep you gripped right to the very end. This first book in the Eternal Trilogy fantasy series, is the start of an epic adventure.
Denise Dowdell-Stent is a YA Fantasy Fiction author but also writes scripts, poetry (published in various anthologies such as 'A Passage in Time' and 'Speaking of Love' by Forward Poetry), song lyrics, and maintains a blog at eternaluk.com.
Denise has been writing stories from the time she could form coherent sentences at six years old – she has always had a wild, untamed imagination and writing provided a means to structure it and share it with the world. She grew up and continues to live, in the picturesque riverside village of Godmanchester in Cambridgeshire. However, she spent three years in Farnham, Surrey while studying for her BA HONS Animation degree. Before Denise realised her true calling was in writing, she wanted to be an animator and produced a number of animated films, mostly 3D Model Animation. Throughout her degree, she continued writing and later realised that as long as she drew breath, this is what she wanted to do.
Denise has always been a big fan of the Fantasy and Paranormal genre; though her books clearly reflect this, they have a strong emphasis on the importance of family and friends, sizzling romance, and adventure.
