Random Spotlight: Colour Wielders by Dawna Raver

Colour Wielders is Dawna Raver's debut novel.  
It is book one in the Heirs of the Magykal Realm.

Behind the Faerying Mysts, hidden from Mortal eyes, is a land where gods and creatures of myth and legend dwell. And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess is hidden away.

Quinn Sinclair lives an ordinary life with her less-than-loving mother in Conifer, Colorado, clueless of her true nature. On the night of her birthday, a staggering betrayal sends her life spinning out-of-control. As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she is transported into a Magykal battle—forever changing her life.

Arik Morgaine—Demigod bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm—tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans.

Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers.

Can the two of them come together and save the Magykal Realm from being destroyed by the Darkest of Magyks?

This was a fascinating story.  The writer created magical characters that I couldn't help but be amazed at.  This books takes you on a thrill ride of ups and downs and twists and turns.  I thought I had it figured out, but then it would change.  I believe there will be a book two and I hope it will be as great as this one.  

Quinn is my favorite character, next to Arik - amazing both of them.  Quinn gets screwed over in the beginning and things in her life aren't what they seem, but then as her life unfolds she learns about her background and about the people around her.  Arik’s future is with the princess but will he ever believe he is meant to be good?  He doesn't fully understand his background or what he is meant to be.

I don't want to ruin the story by telling you too much but this book is full of the Magykal realm with many amazing creatures and much mystery.
