Bound by the Mist (Mists of Eria 1) by Lisa Kumar

A magic that's fading

Relian has lived a life that hasn’t changed in millennia, and he likes it that way. As Prince of the Erian people, he has his conscripted duties. And a human, even one as desirable as Cal, does not fit into them. But as the enemy darkindred knock on the borders and the magic of his people fades, he might just have to find room.

A love that's binding

College Student Cal Weston spends a good portion of her time trying to keep people from thinking she's crazy, including herself. And with good reason. But her carefully constructed reality is turned upside down when she discovers that Relian, the seductive elvin prince who has been starring in her sensuous fantasies, isn’t merely a myth and his magical kingdom really exists. Now she’s bound to an elf and stuck in a land where no one, least of all Relian, is willing to spill any answers about the truth of her arrival.

Two people, two worlds meet in the mist

Even as love grows between them, can they lay aside their differences to embrace a life together?

Calantha, Cal, just wants to be an ordinary girl, but she's not. She keeps dreaming of an elf and seeing a strange fog. Through the fog, she can see Eria, one of the elven kingdoms.

It seems that the magic from Eria is fading away while the elves are fighting against the darkindred and to restore it they need a human. But the elves hate all the things related to the humans. However, the mist has other plans, plans that link Cal to the Eria’s prince, Relian.

I couldn’t stop laughing when I read what Kenhel asked Relian, his best friend, when he was preparing to tell his father, the king, that his bond mate is a human:
“Aw, Relian, do you want me to hold your hand while you face your father?”
Cal and Maggie, her best friend, are taken by the mist to Eriannon, the capital of the Erian elves, the same night the king celebrates Relian’s bonding. Cal doesn’t know if she wants to stay or to go back home.

However, not all the elves are willing to accept the two young women… some will do anything to keep the throne line pure, although it means killing Cal.

The story was interesting, and the storyline was credible. I liked the characters and I can't wait to read Maggie’s story. I bet it will be interesting.

The only thing I disliked was that Ms. Lisa Kumar added too much information, which made it a bit boring. For that reason I give it 4 stars.
