About the Author

Stacey Marie Brown by day is an Interior/Set Designer, by night a writer of Paranormal Fantasy, Adventure, and Literary Fiction. She grew up in Northern California, where she ran around on her family’s farm, raising animals, riding horses, playing flashlight tag, and turning hay bales into cool forts. Even before she could write, she was creating stories and making up intricate fantasies. Writing came as easy as breathing. She later turned that passion into acting, living and traveling abroad, and designing. Though she had never stopped writing, moving back to San Francisco seemed to have brought it back to the forefront and this time it would not be ignored. When she’s not writing she’s out hiking, spending time with friends, traveling, listening to music, or designing.

I received this book for an honest review. I had 90% read in six hours, but at 2am in the morning and work at 8 I had to peel myself away from the screen. But I finished it the next morning. And what a story it was. This book reminds me of Iron King only on a much cooler and grown-up scale.

Ember has such a dry and sarcastic sense of humour that I laughed through so much of this book. She was no damsel in distress, and could hold her own. There were so many times I smiled when she stood up to certain people, her comebacks brilliant. She has a habit of just saying what she's thinking, really she has no filter and it's so, so funny. Just loved her as a main character.

The love story is not your usual. Eli is harsh, bitter, and sarcastic but the two of them, together, in one place is brilliant. Between the sexual tension and dry remarks it worked like a dream.
Stories of fae can be sweet, kinda like a bed time story, but Darkness to Light in no bed-time story quite the opposite.

This is story telling with a new kind of twist on it.

Just Brilliant. Loved it.

When I first checked into the reviews of the book I saw seven 5 star reviews but as I looked at the people who posted the review this was the only book they had reviewed so I thought perhaps it as friends and family boosting the book to look good - I took the plunge and read it anyway - and boy am I glad I did!! Even if those other reviews were puffer reviews there was no need for them, this book is truly gripping, I could not put it down and read it straight through.
The characters, the plot and the way you are kept in suspense is wonderful. The basic plot of a lot of paranormal book is Good vs Evil, this one is Light vs Dark but its not so cut and dry as good versus evil, but we have just entered the world of Light and Dark and you can feel the million possibilities of what lies ahead! You are not sure which characters to trust and which to hate, I still am not sure whose side I am on! I cannot see where the next book takes us and how this story unfolds!!!

Would I buy it again: YES
Would I recommend it: YES

Oh. My. Goodness.

So, I signed up to review the third book in this series, "Dwellers of Darkness"--NEVER having heard of the author or series before. I was hoping it'd be something that I'd enjoy.

I'm having a difficult time coming up with words other than, "Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness!" right now. I feel like I'm sixteen again and just discovered the paranormal genre for the first time. Ugh.

So, yeah, there are some definite strong feelings about this book.

First off, I LOVE badass female characters! LOVE them!! Just add Ember to that list!
While she can be impetuous and immature at times (she is, after all, just a girl) she is one of those characters that just makes me so happy.
She can fight, she's smart, she's loving, devoted, crazy, emotional, a little rough around and the edges and altogether wonderful.

Then add on top of that Eli Dragen. Oh, boy. That Eli. Let's just say that if you like the "bad boy" thing, he's your guy. I, personally, believe that these kind of guys are not for everyone (myself included). BUT, paired off with a girl like Ember and you have chemistry that just jumps at you from the pages.

If you haven't started this series yet, what the heck are you waiting for?! It's amazing!

I loved this book for so many reasons. First, and probably most important, it was very well written. The character development and world building were excellent. The story is unique and draws you in from the very beginning. And the characters...well, the characters were fantastic!

I think I loved Ember because she was so real. She reacted to all the mysterious things going on around her just as I might have. At first, with the "if I don't think about it, admit it or talk about it, it might go away" method of dealing with strangeness and then with the "I'm going to get to the bottom of this and kick some butt" method. She was strong, sassy and smart...a great combination! Torin was a true hero. The sweet, protective hero we all love. When he came into her in her dreams I was captivated and so was she...at least for a time! Because, in came Eli. All brash and sexy and mysterious and moody and hot. And Torin may have been pushed to the back burner. I have no doubt we'll see more of him and he'll try his hardest to change our minds. It'll be a tough road for him though because Eli already has me, ummm, I mean Ember, wrapped around his sexy little finger.

This story built up slowly to the final reveal of the mystery surrounding both Ember and Eli. I can't wait to see what the author has in store for us next. I'm sure it will be a non-stop adventure and I'm hoping for some sizzling romance too! :)

I do not like writing bad reviews. To criticize someone's work that they poured their heart, sweat, and dreams into doesn't make me feel good. It takes a lot for someone to put their work out for the world to see and ultimately devour.

That being said, a book has to really compel me to write a negative review and, unfortunately, this book did. I'll run down the problems:

1) character: there is virtually no character development AT ALL. From ANY character. This includes the heroine. The heroine finally makes a decision to act at the very end of the book (we're talking the very last page). But, by then, it's too late. And she did nothing the entire book to earn her sudden call to action.

The heroine, Ember, is not a character I would ever want to read about again. I hate reading books where the heroine makes painfully stupid decisions for no reason. Just to add "conflict" to a story that has none (we'll get to that later). She was constantly bombarded with evidence of her powers and things happening around her, but all the reader got for 99% of the book was, "what am I?" "I'm hallucinating." This is fine if you eventually move on from this and discover what's really happening or at least have the character take some action or hunt down some answers. But, this was one of the most passive characters I have ever read.

I'm no feminist, but I can't imagine that Ember is a good example to young girls. And trust me when I say this is a young adult read. Possibly 12-15. Definitely not adult level.
