“Reviewed By Rosie Malezer for Readers’ Favorite

The Halfling is the first book in The Halfling series, written by Melissa H. North. Pursued by her brothers from the Faerie realm of Grandelione, Eliana Ariarose flees through the streets of New York City. Her brothers are sworn enemies, with the youngest, Caelian, having battled to earn his title of Crown Prince from Aemon – a royal who vows bloodshed in order to have his claim to the throne restored. As Eliana flees, she makes startling discoveries about herself and her real identity, as well as the truth about her upbringing. During her journey, Eliana meets many beings from the Faerie world. Some would die to keep her safe, while others would happily steal her immense and unusual powers, right before destroying her heart and soul. Her biggest challenge in staying alive is in determining friend from foe.

As a fan of the paranormal, I can quite honestly say that this is not only one of the most unusual stories I have ever read, but is also one of the most exciting. With surprises jumping out from all corners, The Halfling leaves you on the edge of your seat, wondering what will come next. Melissa H. North’s imagination takes you to another world and more, with beings from different worlds coming together to achieve one common goal, fighting for good. The adventures which take place in our world are harsh and quite deadly, but a light is shone upon what we see, clearing away the fog and showing beings for what they truly are. Both good and evil come from the strangest of places and from people whom you least expect, yet the battle of good versus evil is continuous. The ending of The Halfling comes with the biggest shock, but leaves the reader yearning to know what comes next. I quite enjoyed the first book in The Halfling series and look forward to the sequel. I recommend Melissa H. North’s action-packed, adventurous tale to all fans of paranormal tales filled with fear, fun, suspense and intrigue.”

I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories and articles I feel are worth writing about.
