About the book (taken from Amazon): 
"I do not think it is a question of where, but when." were the words that Charis left my mother with thirty years ago when I disappeared from Meric…before I was born.

Shortly after being sent back I've been attacked by man-eating Vaipes. I've learned that my father was a power wielding Guardian. I've discovered that the silvery-blue eyes intriguing me my entire life belong to my Watcher, Shaw who is without a doubt the most handsome man I have ever seen. And somehow I need to stop a war mongering tyrant who can manipulate people's thoughts.

So my question isn't where or when. It is how? How can I help the people of Meric when I can't stop myself from falling in love?

My Thoughts: 
Christina, a teacher from Pittsburgh, enjoying her dinner at the local greasy spoon suddenly finds herself in the magical land of Meric where dwarfs, elves, and kindly giants are battling an evil queen and her army of Vaipes (basically zombies, EEK!) for control. Little does Christina know that she holds the key to saving the entire world and that the land of Meric could hold the key to her heart. With characters like Shaw, Christina's Watcher guardian and a spectacular fantasy kingdom that showcases Ms. Hartz's vivid imagination, Conception is a book for anyone who likes fairy tales, sci-fi, fantasy and so on.

So here goes. I haven't been reading a lot of fantasy lately. The last fantasy book I read left me completely underwhelmed so I was a bit skittish about accepting another book in the genre when my schedule was already so jam-packed but, boy, am I glad I did! Not only was Conception partially set in Pittsburgh (best place in the USA) Franco Harris was also mentioned and the hero in the book was a total stud muffin! Did I mention the story actually kept my attention and I didn't have to keep flipping back and forth to keep the characters straight in my head?

The conclusion of this book left me hanging so I am definitely happy that books two and three are readily available. It will be interesting to see what Christina has to do to save her kingdom and what will develop between her and Mr. Hottie (yeah, that's what I call Shaw). There is violence and some mild language (don't worry, no four letter words) that might not be suitable for the younger reader but this has sort of a young adult fiction feel that older teens, not just adults, can enjoy too. With a little more concise editing this book could be a five star read.

NOTE: This book is only available in digital format so you will need an e-reader, smart phone, PC or Mac to read this.

~ My Rating: 4 stars ~
