The Gifted walk among us. They are unseen, but in plain sight. The Earth’s energies are as visible to them as the tangible world is to us and they can harness and bend these forces to their will. Atop the Pentagon resides the government of the Gifted Realm.
Rainer Lawson is set to join the ranks of Elite Officers in the Gifted Police force. With his fellow officers, they will work together, using their abilities, to try and end the most sinister criminal organization in existence. His parents fought and died to re-establish the Realm, and he won’t allow them to have sacrificed in vain.
The will to protect those he loves has always driven Rainer, but his desperation to protect Emily, the love of his life, consumes him. While passions ignite and vengeance is sought, Rainer may discover that all of his money, fame, and power, could cost him the only thing that has ever truly mattered. –

Review – This cover is so gorgeous, that alone made me want to read this book. Within the Realm is the first in a series so there is a lot of world building but wow, what a world. The gifted in this book remind me a bit of X-Men with their special powers which is a huge compliment.
We meet Emily and Rainer (love the name) who have been in love since they were kids. They are both gifted and Emily is all about distracting Rainer with sex (I know the cover may LOOK YA but this is NA). This is an intense love story with fantasy wrapped in. The author pulls you in and makes you care about these characters. This is a great story and you will want to read the next book as well.
I received a copy of this book for my honest review, no other compensation was received.
