100 Books in 2012: Novella 65 “Her Sweetest Downfall”

As a fan of Rebecca Hamilton’s Forever Girl series, I eagerly downloaded this free novella.  What a treat!
Ophelia is a servant in England at the turn of the nineteenth century.  Her father wanted better things for her, but her father is dead and her mother is missing, so Ophelia is left to make her own choices.  She goes into service not just to earn a living, however: her employers also employed her mother shortly before she vanished.

When Ophelia meets a stranger in the woods, her life changes forever.  Ethan Forrester tells her that she has been chosen for a higher purpose: to bring peace to the world of dual breeds and elementals that Ophelia always thought were merely the bedtime stories of her mother.  But to play her part, Ophelia must sacrifice her humanity…and her growing affection for Ethan.

Hamilton gives readers a glimpse of the background of two major players in The Forever Girl, and it’s as satisfying as getting the last piece of a puzzle to click into place.   Fans of all things paranormal will love this short addition to the world of The Forever Girl.
