Chronicles of the Light, book one…
Bodies keep piling up, but Kaitlin O'Malley refuses to back down, even when threatened by someone once worshipped as a god. Training for a battle between good and evil, she teams up with the Dragon King and a powerful lion, and finds herself protected by a Master Vampire who wants her in his bed.
With a vile enemy ready to destroy her, the men in her life lock her up to keep her safe, but Kaitlin will never let other people fight her battles. She’ll have to break free and venture out on her own, wielding a powerful weapon to protect herself — a weapon her enemies would kill for. To face the enemy alone, Kaitlin must view the world in an Unhuman Light.
In a supernatural battle of magic and strength, can an unlikely human prevail?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I’ve always been an Urban Fantasy fan although for the past few years I’ve stuck with the romance genres. But, Unhuman Light had all my favorite paranormal/fantasy elements, so I couldn’t pass it up.
Unhuman Light is definitely pure Urban Fantasy but there was a touch of romance involved. I just wish it hadn’t faded to black with such an intriguing little conversation afterward. It’s good there was plenty of action of the other kind to keep me happy.
Kaitlin is a therapist by day, but the unique powers she wields mean she is exceedingly good at fighting supernatural bad guys, especially demons. Unfortunately, her particular skill is causing an unbalance to the system that has gained her attention she does not need.
Kaitlin was super cautious and took into account all the pros and cons of not only who she befriended but also every step she made. I loved this in some ways, but in others it made her feel almost cold about certain things.
I know this wasn’t a romance and Kaitlin and her super sexy vampire weren’t a serious couple, but I think the fade to black thing was a missed opportunity to inject more emotion and feeling into the story. That being said, this didn’t ruin the book for me at all, I still really liked it.
With vampires and shifters of all kinds, the action I adore, and the fascinating supernatural politics so I was in my fantasy happy place. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
