"a magical, fun-filled journey"
Claire is having a rotten birthday. Here she sits, 25
years old, in the middle of a divorce, and getting drunk,
alone in the middle of her living room floor. She eyes the
gaudily wrapped birthday gift from her sister with
distaste, but decides to open it as she knows her sister
will bombard her with questions about it later. But after
unwrapping the gift, she is amused to find a pressed fairy
book, much like the one they looked at when they were
kids. Only this book is different: one of the fairies
appears to be moving and asking for her to help in
releasing him. At first she thinks she's hallucinating,
until she sees his hands pressing through the page, encased
in what looks like plastic. After deciding to humor
her "hallucination", she is able to break the "plastic" and
free the fairy, a very good-looking fairy at that, who
introduces himself as Dell of the Dale. But before Claire
has a chance to wrap her head around the fact that there's
a real fairy in her living room, goblins attack the house.
She and Dale have no choice but to escape through a rift
between their worlds into his, and appeal for help from the
Elven Queen. Claire has no idea why she has suddenly
become involved in a world she never even knew existed, but
she's about to get more involved than she could ever
Go Between: Book 1 of The Curtain Torn series is a magical,
fun-filled journey that will take you right along with the
heroine into the land of Fae. Dayna Hart created a plot
that not only was entertaining and original, but that was
also intelligent. She did a phenomenal job explaining the
torn curtain to her readers, and I loved the scenes that
illustrated how important communication is between
different cultures- and in this case, species. But just
because the book was smart, doesn't mean that it wasn't
quirky and fun too! The plot was very exciting and fast-
moving, all of the characters were great, and the author's
writing was very smooth and flowed right along. Claire was
a thoughtful, caring heroine and Dell was one hot fairy! I
look forward to seeing their relationship develop further
in the series. Since the book does not contain any
sensuality and only mild violence, it can be enjoyed by
even more sensitive readers. Go Between is a great
beginning of a delightful series you definitely won't want

Between two races that hate each other, at the doorway between two worlds, can Claire find the strength to be the emissary they all need?
Book One of The Curtain Torn series.
Halfway through her twenties, her divorce, and a bottle of rye, Claire opens her birthday present-a "pressed fairy" book.
One of the fairies is neither pressed, nor a picture. He's the sinfully sexy Dell, who's been trapped inside the book for twenty years. The moment Claire frees him, goblins attack her house. Dell and Claire's only option is to use a "Between"-a rift between their worlds-to escape into the land of Fae.
There, Claire discovers the elven queen, Eliane, has a mission for her-one that has her keeping secrets from Dell. And ousting the goblins from her home is only the start.
