About the Book: 
Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. But she never felt ready to face them until now. Defying the Auran Council and everything she's been taught, Llona must learn to use her power over light as a weapon if she wants to survive.


My Photo
I was born and raised in Idaho, a place secretly known for its supernatural creatures. When I'm not in my writing lair, I'm partying with my husband and four small children. My love for storytelling began as a child when the moon first possessed the night. For when the lights went out, my imagination painted a whole new world. And what a scary world it was… Oh, and my debut YA novel Fractured Light will be out February 2012.



My Review: 


This book was a gripping combination of terror,wonder,paranormal,magick,and more! It grabs you from the very beginning. This story is about what you would do to survive? What would you do to save those you love? Including the boy you have fallen in love with but can never have?  Would you fight? Would you lay down and die and let the darkness over take you? 


This book sort of reminded me about another series that I just love! From Richelle Mead in those books the Moroi (a mortal vampire with an unbreakable bond to the earth's magic.) are not allowed to fight just as in this book. But things change when they begin to realize that their protectors or Guardians can not always be there.  In the end it is your own self that you must depend on to save your life.




The only thing I wish they would have done is made the bad guy badder. At times I wondered if the book was going to end before the bad guy got around to doing anything. I really can't wait for the next installment coming in 2013.  I hope we get more of what an Aura can do. As we have seen that I wouldn't want to be in a fight with one! 


So go pre-order this book! You won't be disappointed.
