In the small town of Silverstone, Texas, 21-year-old Rosalie Watson is an average medical student just trying to get by. At least she would be average, if not for her magical ability to heal any living thing. As citizens of Silverstone begin to go missing, Rosalie wonders who or what could be behind the disappearances. When she meets heartthrob Jackson Bulgari, she’ll discover a world of magic and mystery unlike anything she ever thought possible. No doubt Rosalie will face challenges and hardship every step of the way, but the real question is: Can she handle it?

Livskraft (Or as I like to call it, Rosalie Watson's Precious Little Life), is a story about that time in our lives we all experience. When we realize that our perfect world won't stay that way forever, our innocence is shattered, and the real world comes crashing in.

For it being her first novel, Teressa J Martin does a fantastic job of painting the world her protagonist Rosalie lives in. She has everything she could want, as well as magic powers, and is as carefree and oblivious as a pigeon sitting on the freeway... as a semi truck bares down on it. The magic system is well thought out and beautifully described, and the characters feel like real people (if you check out her YouTube channel and see the lengths she goes to when creating them, you'll understand why https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOXFLKLtdQMhJytQDxtUBjA ). The plot starts a bit slow, but there's a reason for that, and if you stick with it, the payoff is well worth it in the end.

Michella Moss does an incredible job of bringing even more life to the world. Her narration immerses me in the story more than I thought I ever could be.

All in all, this is a fantastic start to a series that's proving to be one of my favorites!
