The review of this Book prepared by Charlene Austin

Family crisis brings Kara (main character) to pawn her cherished violin. This sacrifice 1) brings her to the attention of a power-hungry force that would use her abilities to its own end and devour her, and 2) introduces her to the Sidhe (elf) who will review Kara's own magical nature and become her protector and mentor. Kara must deal with the significance of this new knowledge of her own nature and what it means to her future, while at the same time staying clear of the back guys and protecting her family.
