Mundahlia by RJ Gonzales

Rini thought going to live with her cousins in the city of Austin, Texas while her parents rekindled their marriage on a four month long cruise, was a step in the right direction. When she makes a new quirky friend, and stumbles upon a handsome young man named Jett in the enveloping forest surrounding her cabin, she thought she was only moving forward. Well, she was wrong.

Jett and his clan appear human, just like anyone else. But take a closer look, and you will see that they are indeed Mundahlians. Legendary hybrid beings with both human and animal qualities that have been kept a heavily guarded secret throughout time—until now. They are taking refuge in our world, fleeing from their hidden homeland of Mundahlia and its aging power-hungry King, who has set up a game between his many children. Whoever can bring them back to their world so they can be tried and executed shall receive the crown once he passes.

Upon finding their hide out, Bane, one of the King's sons, and on a hunt to win the crown, sees an opportunity to shatter the blossoming relationship, lure the family back to Mundahlia, and frame Rini for the murder of a Mundahlian—thus, breaking the pact signed long ago with the humans, and reigniting an ancient war for the majority of land and control. A triple deed that will surely earn him the power he craves.

In this first book in The Mundahlian Era series, read of how our human-dominant era will end, and how a new one shall begin.
A Mundahlian Era.

There were just a few parts that were dragging out a bit for me but there weren’t that bad because it seemed as soon as it got to those parts, they quickly passed and were replaced with a more upbeat pace. I look forward to the next book, the cliffhanger at the end leaves you wide eyed, and my personal reaction was “WHAT THAT’S IT?!” and then I see that the next book is not coming out until 2013! I can tell you that I will be looking out for this book, I want to see how much further RJ pushes in building up the characters and the world of Mundahlia.
