Jennifer Delucy's The Light Series Tour - Reviews & Giveaway
Synopsis for Seers of Light Lillian Hunt has never truly lived. Always sensing more to the world than is easily perceived, she fears that her instincts are stubborn flights of fancy, or worse, mental instability. But some things-disappearing strangers, tangible dreams, and visits from malevolent creatures-cannot be ignored. Before it's too late, Lillian is ripped from the only existence she's ever known and thrust into a reality that she always suspected, but could scarcely believe. She must learn the truth about who she is, the powerful beings that wish to destroy her, and the two men who would die to protect her. Jennifer DeLucy has created a unique, enchanting tale of destiny and the ageless power of love in her debut novel, Seers of Light. DeLucy's novel charms readers with quirky characters, while sketching a haunting portrait of one woman's journey on the path of the supernaturally gifted. But be prepared. Once you've entered the world of Seers, you will never be the same.
Review for Seers of Light Lily, our main character, has always felt that she was different from everyone else, and doesn't quite belong. She regularly has strange, unexplained things happen around her, which she keeps to herself, for fear of being thought crazy. Then she has a dream, in which she meets Christian, who confirms that she is different. Christian throughout the book only tells Lily enough to keep her safe- which is a trait I can't stand in characters. Who are they to decide what is or isn't enough information. Anyway - she also meets William, a vampire. Lily becomes attracted to William, which goes against the beliefs of the people who have taken her in to protect her.
I enjoyed the setting for the book. All of the characters are likable in their own way. I am glad that Lily chose who she chose at the end of the book. I don't want to ruin it for you - so you'll have to read and see if she chose Christian or William.
The pace of the book was perfect. The book was simple, without a ton of twists and turns - but it was refreshing in it's simplicity. I couldn't wait to read book two after finishing this one.
**Caution! If you haven't read the first book - don't read the second review below as it will give things away that happened in Seers of Light.
Synopsis for Whispers of Light The saying goes that all men are created equal... but Nicole Abbot knows better. Lacking the supernatural gifts of the Sentients she has known all her life, Nicole has lived with her nose pressed to the glass, withering beneath the guilt of her own inadequacies and the disapproving glare of her father. It's easy to believe that the universe has forgotten all about her, but things are not always as they seem. With the arrival of Christian Wright, a handsome but complex Combatant with a troubled history, Nicole is forced to question everything she has ever believed about herself, proving that sometimes, our most flawed perceptions are those reflected in a mirror. Jennifer DeLucy again plunges us into the world of lingering spirits, dark apparitions, and malicious vampires. But this time she takes us to the California coast where we get to know a new ensemble of gifted souls that are just as vibrant and endearing as the Sentients we came to love in Seers of Light. In Whisper of Light, DeLucy delivers exciting supernatural encounters as well as very human interactions that will both break your heart and make it soar.
Review for Whispers of Light Whispers of Light is about Christian, from the previous book. He had to get away from Lily and William. He joins up with another group of Sentients and meets Nicole. Whispers of Light is a much slower paced story and focuses on the budding relationship between Christian and Nicole. I really like Nicole and can relate to the pressure that she is under from her father. We also get to see another side of Christian that we didn't see in Seers of Light. This book is a journey of self discovery for both Christian and Nicole. I thoroughly enjoyed it - thought it's much different than the first book. As long as you go in knowing this book isn't about Lily and is a slower pace, you will love it.
