Till and Eliza have something that is beautiful and real that it makes you want to hate them. They both grow up from a low class life and thinking that they are not good enough. But with each other, they find that they are more than enough for each other. Though, it does take some time for that to happen. There are times that Till is going to annoy you, because he REALLY got on my nerves at the beginning of the book. But you know that there is a reason behind it. He’s a good man who wants what’s best for his family and Eliza.

Eliza knows that Till is the one that she wants for her life. She sees what he has inside of him and only wants what’s best for him. I loved reading her and her determination to get him to see the world for what it is. The way that they argue over reality and fantasy. We all know that struggle of what we want to do and what can actually happen. Sometimes when we get something that we really want, it’s easy to think that we don’t deserve it.

So I did this series a little backwards. I was able to get an ARC copy for the second book of the series, so I read that and already knew bits and pieces about this couple. But actually reading how they got together and to their happy ever after is a whole new thing. What made it bad was that I was expecting something to happen with Eliza and Flint since he was so obsessed with her in the second book, but there was nothing. It was always Till for her and I didn’t understand why Flint was so obsessed with her.

If we put that aside and focus just on the main story at hand, you will find that it’s a book that you won’t be able to put down. Aly Martinez’s characters in this world have a lot of heart ache and problems that it’s a pleasure to get to see them fight through the fantasy world and embrace the idea that fantasy can be reality if you believe in it and work hard for it.
