Sara had always been careful.

She never spoke of magic, never associated with those suspected of handling magic, never thought of magic, and never, ever,let anyone see her mark. 

After all, 

the last thing she wanted was to end up missing, like her father and brother.

Then, a silver elf pushed his way into Sara's dream, and her life became anything but ordinary.

The Review: Copper Girl is the start of what could be a great series.

Following a war between those with magic and those without, Humans won. Now magic is governed, if you have it, you either work for the government or die! Sara has magic, in fact her whole family have it and her ancestry is powerful but she can’t let people know what she’s capable of, she can’t let them know that her mark is a symbol of that magic because if anyone found out… she’d end up missing just like her father & brother. So she hides it & goes about her life the same as everyone else, working a boring job & towing the line until one scorching hot day whilst taking a nap in her car… a silver haired elf makes an appearance and makes her day even hotter but also turns her life upside down.
This was a great read, a mix of dystopian and fantasy which blended together really well. I like a character with secrets and nearly all of the characters in this book are hiding something, none more so than our leading lady Sara. She is full of magic and hides her ancestry well which is necessary for the times in which they live. Sara seemed quite boring in the beginning, going through the motions of daily life and whilst not really happy to do so, is definitely not going to bring attention to herself lest she be found out. Her family were powerful in more ways than one and were very prominent in society before the war but now live in a sort of disgrace due to their ‘fathers’ abilities and his stature before his disappearance and the later disappearance of her brother, leading her to live an extremely cautious life which is understandable. She knows little of her magic so is quite shocked at the appearance of an elf who seems to know more about her than herself. As she discovers herself, what she is and capable of, she blossoms under the guidance of Micah again in more ways than one. Their first encounter is quite steamy and I liked that they injected some romance into the story… it did have a connected feel to the relationship so I’m hoping for some fate/destiny type of relationship.

The storyline again was great, the first half of the book seemed to be about building the relationship & finding out about how the new mundane world came about, how it worked etc. so very much a getting to know you & your world scenario. Then once we start to get real answers, the plot becomes a whole lot more interesting as we explore the Otherworld where Micah is from. I love fantasy worlds, the potential is only limited by the imagination of the author and I liked what we got in this. We are introduced to new places, learn about some new species and start an adventure which splits between the 2 worlds. I like how this was done and I absolutely loved the secrets that came out during the story because as I said, there are a few. I liked the idea of the powers certain people possess and their differences, the histories that could surround them, I liked to see Sara trying to own those powers and what the whole course of action means to Sara’s family. This book was definitely a grower where it builds and builds to crescendo and you just know things will never be the same for those involved. I really look forward to book two and now some skeletons are out of the closet, I’m hoping for a lot more action & magic in the ‘Otherworld’ – this is a great start though.
