Review: Elfin Blood by Gracen Miller!

Scorned by her own kind for her half-breed elf status, Julija lives a lonely existence among her Ivory Elf kin. She is the only one the elves can trust when a magical book in elf lore is stolen. Relegated to steal the Book from the vampire thief, Landau Jamieson, she's surprised to discover he has the ability to walk in daylight. Refusing to be deterred by developing setbacks, she’s committed to executing the heist for an Ivory King who grows more desperate to possess the Book. Nothing about the vampire is as it appears and Julija begins to doubt her mission. Worse, she begins to worry she won't have the strength to guard her heart from her sworn enemy.
Landau is fascinated by the elf stalking him and baffled by the potent hunger she elicits after ten thousand years of celibacy. Soon he discovers the lovely sprite is a pawn in a dangerous game--orchestrated by none other than a reviled enemy from his past. While blind-sided by her beauty and her magical powers, the least of which is the spell she casts on his heart, the sinister plot unfolds. What started out as folly to catch a thief, blossoms into a love that casts aside bloodlines and forges all boundaries.

So freaking good! Before I started Elfin Blood I was in a bit of a reading slump, but was immediately drawn into the story and wound up reading it in one sitting! I love the way the author writes and is able to portray so many different types of paranormal creatures.

This was such a fascinating take on Elves. It is definitely a steamy read, but my favorite thing about it was getting the passages of Elfin history and the hierarchy/political aspect of the story. It was intriguing and a great way to engage the reader between the love scenes. I enjoyed both of the characters and learning about how their paranormalness helps to develop their character.

I also loved that there was a bit of back and forth with the main characters before the steamy scenes came into play. It builds things up until that very satisfying moment when ereaders will catch fire. To say they have chemistry would be an understatement. 

There is some romance and a bit of betrayal thrown into the mix of the story. Even though this was a novella, I was completely satisfied at the end. (Though I could totally read more! *wink*wink*) 

Every paranormal romance fan should check this one out! It has an awesome story to go with the gorgeous cover!
