Synopsis:

Sometimes you find home, sometimes it comes looking for you.

Callie knows a lot more about pain than she does about family. She’s never belonged, at least, not until she falls through a portal into her true home. The beautiful faerie city of Eirensae doesn’t come free. Callie must find her amulet and bind herself to the city, and most importantly, avoid the Fallen fae who seek her life. Seems like a small price to pay for the family she’s always wanted.

Then she meets cynical and gorgeous Rowan, who reads the darkness of her past in her eyes. He becomes Callie’s part-time protector and full-time pain in the ass. He has secrets of his own for Callie to unravel. What they don’t know is that the future of Eirensae lies with them, and the once peaceful city is about to become a battleground for power.

Review:
Reflection Pond was such a fun book to devour.  It twinkled with excitement, mystery and a possibility for a beautiful relationship between two broken people.  Err Faeries.  What started out as journey to find ones true home, slowly morphed into a landscape built to incite a war.  And Callie and Rowan are smack dab in the middle of it.
Faeries, murder, magic.  How  the hell did she end up in the middle of it?
Callie is running away from the horrors of having her boyfriend touch her.  She doesn’t want him touching her body, she doesn’t care how crazy looks, she just needs to escape.  Lost in her rash decision and being caught up in the moment, she dodges an oncoming vehicle and falls into a pond.  The pond is a portal for her kind, and it leads her to Eirensae and two boys, Ash and Rowan.  Callie is now on a path to discover who she is and what the future already has in store for her.
And maybe she was crazy, but was it so wrong of her to be curious?  To ask, what if? She glanced again at her reflection.  They’d pinned flowers in her hair and covered her eyelids with glitter.  
Maybe she wanted this.
Maybe this was the most excited she’d been.
Ever.

Callie has the most beautiful heart, but sometimes she struggled seeing what was in front of her.  Her innocence made me laugh, but some of the decisions she choose made me so proud.  I was so happy that she wanted to learn to physically defend herself.  There are Faeries and other beings that will want to hurt her for the powers and the possibilities she holds, so a big round of applause to Callie for learning to protect herself!  But at times, I wanted to shake her.  I desperately needed her to make up her mind for who to trust and be with, because I had already decided that in the first chapter of the book (a little obsessed with Rowan over here).  So it didn’t sit well with me when she View Spoiler », but keep in mind that two of my favorite Heroines did similar actions, and I still completely love them.  Thankfully, by the end of the book she was closer to the Callie I knew she deserved and wanted to be!  Sometimes it takes a little while to get your footing and grow up, so I can’t wait to see how her actions in the next books will play out.

I always choose debauchery over death.  It’s my basic nature.  Remember that. – Ash

Rowan is a Faerie that Callie meets when she lands in Eirensae, and let it be known that I love Rowan!  He is dark, sarcastic, and dangerously addicting.  He is everything I love all wrapped up in a sexy body!  Ohhh and add the fact that when he is angry and frustrated he trains his body while using weapons, you have a recipe for a truly amazing man.  Every time he graced a page, I had a smile on my face.  He liked to mess with Callie, and it constantly made me laugh.  I know it’s obvious, but I loved everything about him.

 
This book was such a wonderful surprise!  It was light enough, yet the mystery of amulets, immortals and a prophecy made for an interesting book.  And I love that we got to alternate between being in Callie and Rowan’s mind.  It was refreshing knowing where both of them stood and what they each thought of not only each other but also of the events that took place.  After that ending, I look forward to following Callie and Rowan on their journey and finding out what the future has in store for them.
