She dreams of a dark-haired man whose face she can’t see.
Layla longs for an escape. Growing up with an alcoholic father gave her a goal; get out of Orlando, and run away to start a new life somewhere else. Desperate to find herself, Layla seeks for the truth of who she is… but it’s not what she’s expecting. Layla has magic, and the man she’s been dreaming of is a demon.
An outsider to his kind with a troubled past, Hunter is hired to bodyguard a coven of witches in the human world. There, he meets Layla. Hunter knows Layla is his true mate from the moment they meet, but fate is determined to cruelly keep the two apart.
Witches despise demons; a romance between the two is unheard of. Yet forbidden love blooms between Layla and Hunter as her coven is hunted by a malicious evil with incredible powers.
Their target is the woman Hunter would give his life for.
Magic always has consequences; so does love.
Halfling by Adrian Wolfe (Dark Immortals, #1)
Her life was like a Cinderella story, and not the good part, so when Layla turned eighteen, after unwittingly sabotaging even her job, it was time to just run as far and fast as she could. Little did she know, her attempt to re-make herself would be as dramatic as the truths she was about to learn, as incredible as the four women who saved her life, or the love she was about to find.
Adrian Wolfe’s HALFLING exists in a world where supernaturals are real, but their existence is not flaunted. Layla was clueless to the fact that she had magic, she was immortal and she was a witch coming into her powers. She also never dreamed that demons existed or that she would find her true love with Hunter, a demonic bodyguard, useful for his power, but despised by witches. Fate has a funny way of turning things upside down, though and while the rest of her world is a deadly question mark, sometimes that oasis of love is all that can keep a young witch sane.
Ms. Wolfe has created a world that makes the supernatural seem, well, “natural.” I found it fascinating that the witches were not all-powerful without a downside to using their powers. It made them more “human.” The style of writing made Layla seem her age, filled with a lack of self-assuredness that resonates with her age group.
Light on depth in the romance department, this one certainly makes up for it in the paranormal aspects, for sure! A nice way to spend a few hours in another world!
