Queene of Light was a fast, overall enjoyable foray into paranormal romance that relied heavily on Fantasy. This series will appeal to someone looking for something a little bit different, as the hero and heroine are not human, but half faery and a literal "fallen Angel".

The book was a good start-but there were areas that could have been improved. First-the romance needed to be expanded. Second-as others have mentioned-the author tend to quickly jump from one important event to another, all the while leaving some events that needed more discussion out. Finally-there are aspects of the "underground" world I find implausible-like the fact that denizens of certain areas spend great quantities of time wading through raw sewage but seem to always be able to clean up easily as well as not get deathly ill from this? Also nothing is mentioned about how all these creatures find food, clean water, etc.

All in all, Queene of Light was enjoyable enough that I'll try the next book in the series.

This was amazing! What a spectacular beginning and a totally new and exciting take on angels and faeries. The first two chapters really grab your interest and keep you turning pages. Half-breed Ayla (Faerie/human) is an assassin for the Queene. Her mentor, Garrett is the Queene's brother. Garrett disdains Ayla's human blood so why is he so insistent on having her to mate?

Ayla works for the Assassin's Guild and fights against the Darkworld forces infiltrating the Lightworld. In an interesting twist, it's the Lightworld dwellers that want to harm the humans not the Darkworlders.

Ayla meets (and should kill but doesn't) Dark Angel Malachi. From then out they are connected and their futures are intertwined. This is an exciting beginning to a very interesting story. I can't wait to read Child of Darkness, the next installment.

Had a hard time really getting into this book. The story for the most part is good, just not one of those books that instantly pulls me into the story making me not want to put it down. Not sure if I will read the other two books in this particular trilogy. In some ways this story has the old Anne Rice kind of feel with all the details written into the story, which I think is why it doesn't have that instant pull that some other authors and books have had for me. This is one I might suggest but depends on who was asking I guess.

This book was very difficult for me to get into. I felt no interest in the storyline or the characters. Glad I got it here instead of wasting my money.

Very predictable plot, flat characters, stilted dialogue. I won't continue the series. I'm surprised by the quality since I enjoyed the author's first installment in the Blood Ties series.
