Erin and Bain are twins who have chosen to leave their normal lives to become immortal elves. It isn’t easy to reconcile both of their worlds. One world is normal and filled with the familiar, the other with magic, etiquette and mystery.

As they try to recover from the terrifying first few months of being elves, an old enemy turns out to be a friend and gives the twins information that might lead them to finding their mother. While this is happening Erin suddenly develops new magical abilities that she needs to figure out how to control, before they get her and Pulsar the Dragon killed.

When Erin disappears, she ends up in the Amazon at the new version of Black Rain. Here she finds Ella, her Fairy Godmother, trapped and unable to escape. Erin gets Ella out and along the way learns the story of her mother from the least likely source. As the story unfolds she knows it is true and now she is determined to find her mother.

While his sister is missing, Bain goes looking for her and meets their mothers’ older sister. Aunt Lyndera lives in the Dublin, Ireland area and is thrilled to finally meet Bain. As they talk, Bain learns more about their mom. He now needs to find a way to keep Erin from getting hurt, again.

As the twins visit their Aunt Lyndera, an old enemy shows up and helps to rally the rescue party. The plan is basic and straight forward -- go into Black Rain, find Mom, and get out. Bain and Erin go and meet other magical creatures along the way.

This is a fun book and the continuation of the story that started in Alvor. It is entertaining and draws the reader into a world that combines magical reality with everyday problems. My older daughters are enjoying the books and are looking forward to the next one.

This was the first book that we have read by Laura Bingham and it was absolutely delightful to find another author who appeals to a wide range of readers. Bingham has found a spot in our library and I hope she'll find a spot in yours as well.
