Book Review: Halfway (Wizards and Faeries) by Stephanie Void

Title: Halfway (Wizards and Faeries Book 1)
Author: Stephanie Void
Release Date: Published July 2011 (first published June 23rd 2011)
Source: Received from the author for an honest review

Cemagna and her brother Temet grew up in hiding. She never thought about the reason for this until Temet is kidnapped and taken to a place known only as the Wizardly Order.

Temet grows up inside the Wizardly Order, which he learns is an extremely dangerous organization. Ostensibly to help the general population, the Order actually exists to corrall and control all wizards. The Ten Ring, the leaders of the Wizardly Order, enjoy the power this gives them... until they begin to view Temet as a threat.

Ten years later, no longer a child, Cemagna begins her search for Temet. She attracts the attention of Duke Von Chi, who takes her in and agrees to help her in her search. What Cemagna doesn’t know is that Von Chi has his own plans for her, and so does Ormas, his son.

My Thoughts

The magic and world building in Halfway is different from other books I have read and makes for a very refreshing read, and the characters are like-able and entertaining.
The story moves quite quickly, but I really enjoyed its pace and the ever changing surroundings with interesting and quirky characters along the way.
There are lots of unanswered questions, and family secrets yet to be revealed in this riveting tale of magic and wonder, mystery and intrigue.
Halfway has definitely kept me on my toes and guessing until the very end.

A very different tale of magic, love, betrayal and family. 
A worthy 4 Star read :]

I've just bought book 2 in this new and exciting series and cant wait to continue with Cemagna and Temet's story.
