With the truth of Ellie’s place among the Balance Keepers finally coming to light, training now begins. She must learn to harness the powers that are growing within her, some spiraling out of control. Confusion and frustration become her constant companions, as her search for answers does nothing but push her further from the man she’s come to love.

David is The Light, the speaker of truth, the whisperer of good in the world. His desire for more than he can have with his new apprentice tears at the fabric of his own stability, bit by bit. He knows what the future holds — and just how damning it will be for Ellie if she’s not prepared to handle it — but he’s forbidden to help.

As tragedy becomes reality, will she reach for The Light, or run into the soothing arms of The Darkness?

Read on for my thoughts on The Light.  No true spoilers, promise.

When the first story in this series, The Core, concluded I knew that this series had the potential to be simply amazing.  The Light only reinforces that feeling.  I’ve already preordered The Future (the third book in the series that releases in August 2015) and if that doesn’t tell you what I think of this series, I don’t know what would.  Note:  I rarely preorder, I wait usually.  But this time I didn’t want to depend on my memory of when to head to the store, I just went for it.

Usually in a review I’ll give a very light recap of the beginning of the novel.  Not enough to give much away, but a kind of tease. (I never give away endings in my reviews)

I feel strongly about where the depth of this series is heading to not want to give even that much away.  You have the basics in the synopsis to tease you into wondering if this novel is for you or not. (and I’m sure numerous reviews that will give you more on Goodreads, Amazon or Barnes & Noble)  I truly believe this is one of those series that you just have to sit down and get lost in another world and experience it firsthand.

There are more twists and turns in The Light than a serpent let loose in a garden could create… and they all matter to the story.  So, you really need to get into this series.  If you enjoy paranormal, if the hint of romance is enough to keep you reading, if you relish the battles between good and evil, if you love an involved, engaging and entertaining long series – then I highly recommend The Light and Equilibrium, the series to you.  Go check it out.  Start with The Core (which was at an amazing low price of free at Amazon recently – don’t know for how long though) and then move on to The Light.  Get ready for a ride you never imagined and to care about what happens to the characters you will find within this alternative world.

*I received an e-ARC of The Light from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not change what I think of this novel.*
