Sydney's 4 Star Review
Brothers given immortality and made Guardians in the fight to keep the Dark Realm away from humanity while protecting their Divine Tree.  Present day enter a sculptor who has unique abilities one of which is that she can see her past lives and one in particular and that ties her to Venn, a Guardian of a Divine Tree.  

When Emma comes home to place a statue dedicated to her grandmother little does she know that she's to become a pawn in the the Dark Realms fight to kill the Divine Tree and in turn Venn.  This book held my attention and I didn't want to put it down until I was done, the author makes you want to know what will happen next but don't think you know what will happen because just when you think you know a curve ball is thrown.  I can't wait to read more of this series.  I was given this book in exchange for an honest review, and wouldn't mind a tree of my own either.
