About Half

Living between worlds has never been comfortable, but it’s where I’ve always fit: between human and fey, illness and health, magic and reality.

I’ve spent the last six years looking for a cure for the nameless sickness eating me up. If I believed there was one out there, I would keep searching. But there isn’t, so I’ve come back home, where my past and present tangle. Come home to live . . . and to die.

But my father insists I meet Kin. He’s a healer, and determined to help, even though I’m not so hopeful anymore. But Kin isn’t what I expected, in any way. He sees me, not my illness. He reminds me of what it’s like to be alive. And I can’t help falling for him, even though I know it isn’t fair to either of us.

Kin thinks he has the cure I’ve been looking for, but it’s a cure that will change everything: me, my life, my heart. If I refuse, I could lose Kin. But if I take it, I might lose myself.

About Eli Lang

Eli Lang is a writer and drummer. She has played in rock bands, worked on horse farms, and has had jobs in libraries, where she spent most of her time reading every book she could get her hands on. She can fold a nearly perfect paper crane and knows how to tune a snare drum. She still buys stuffed animals because she feels bad if they’re left alone in the store, believes cinnamon buns should always be eaten warm, can tell you more than you ever wanted to know about the tardigrade, and has a book collection that’s reaching frightening proportions. She lives in Arizona with far too many pets.

    I love fantasy-themed books that’s why the first time I’ve read this, “Living between worlds has never been comfortable, but it’s where I’ve always fit: between human and fey, illness and health, magic and reality.” , I was a goner. ^_^ And to think that the blurb ends with this line, “If I refuse, I could lose Kin. But if I take it, I might lose myself.” , I was like, *Oh.My.God! I have to have this book!!!*

    I’m seriously having second thoughts right now if I should finish the book I’m currently reading or if I should dive into this instead. Making that decision is a tough task, eh? *furrowed brows*

    Congratulations on the release of Half, Eli. It is set in a mystical world, but the theme of finding a cure for an illness is one very much in this world.
