Book Description

As Charmeine and Tabbruis unite to proclaim their love for one another it becomes apparent a dark task has presented itself for the ill-fated lovers to overcome. Even with the beautiful union between Tabbruis and Charmeine, destiny will surely reveal itself.

Being the Queen of Light, Charmeine is fated to bring light and love into the world, but yet her personal life can in no way interfere with her task. Devoted to Tabbruis and her son, Shane, it is all she can do to focus.

As the rule of engagement commences, she must first step up to the plate and bring forth a change to an endless feud which has already been acclaimed centuries into existence.

As King of Darkness, Tabbruis has been placed in his position for a purpose. His love for Charmeine has only brought peace and clarity into existence for him. With his family now back together, he must stand against his own kind, not only to protect what is right but also to defend the world from the impending darkness.

Family bonds only strengthen the ties. Shane introduces his proclaimed love into the picture and in a jaw dropping course of events, love is tested and the family is torn apart. They say that love can span the planes of existence, but can this family hold tight until the end and keep it together just long enough to face forces of darkness that is so hell bent on destroying the world?

Carly Ann Wallace
Acclaimed Author of “Southern Summer” and “Concrete Angel”

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Second Book in the Series September 29, 2012
By Polly
Format:Kindle Edition
Excitement, excitement from the beginning of book two in this wonderful series! I absolutely loved Shane's surprise!! The excitement keeps building and building!
I loved Dmitri, loved the "family" What a lovely castle for their home. Charmeine is such a strong woman, she continues her training and the love between her and Tabburis continues to grow. The couple is learning more and more who they can trust and who they can't. Are friends really enemies? I loved the development of the extended family, each new member is such a great addition to the book and to the series. Book two in this series just left me wanting book three NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome continuation of the series! September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! I was loving these two at the end of the first book but now, I am loving them even more. In this book, Charmeine and Tabbruis are given the surprise of their lives as memories of their past love come to the surface. Some memories are good, while others reveal their ordeal may be far from over. Can they complete the dark task that has been set before them and once again be what they once where to each other? I definitely recommend this book as well as the first to anyone who loves a good deep story of love that can overcome any distance and any force imposed upon it.

5.0 out of 5 stars great mix of action & romance July 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This second book in the series carried on where book one Charmeine left off. The characters in the first book were developed and each had a chance to tell their own story, bringing everyone together in their fight to overthrow the corrupt Elder Council. Action packed with never a dull moment add to this an ending leaving the reader wanting to find out what happens next. Thank you Emily Guido for sending me a complimentary copy of this excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can love conquer? July 4, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This series is really heating up!

In Mactus you get the same magnetic romance between Charmeine and Tabbruis, along with some huge surprises.

I was either sighing over Char and Tab, or chuckling about Shane.

I also did a lot of `take this' and `take that' when the evil-doers showed up. Every time one fell, I'd do a fist pump!

Emily's love for her characters is shown in their love for each other. Never have I read a book with such love and devotion in a family. I get a goofy grin on my face when they share their emotions so freely with each other.

He leaned to her and whispered, "Semper tuus ero, Charmeine."

She whispered back, "Semper tua ero, Tabbruis."

There is more than one love story being told in Mactus. And Charmeine has some heavy decisions to think about. But I believe this family is tough enough, strong enough, to triumph over any obstacle.

As I closed the book, I studied the cover and my mind wandered. And I dreamed.

I can't remember what I dreamt, but the feeling of joy stayed with me all through the day. I'm sure Emily's characters had something to do with that.

Each book gets better and better as you become more committed to this family.

Light and dark. Angels and vampires. The Light-Bearer series casts a spell of charm and holds you tight.

Emily gifted me a copy of this book. My review was honestly given.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drawn again July 1, 2013
By Mgaleos
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose the five star rating for the same reasons. I'm enjoying the journey and find myself invested in each character with equal joy, concern, trepidation, and suspense. The plot is developing at a nice pace. I don't always enjoy a frenetic race to the finish! This is one delicious ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the characters June 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The surprises, twists and turns never fair. The characters are so very real and I feel like part of the family. Charmeine, Tabbrius, Shane, Dmitri, Sandra, and Neal are all such wonderful characters. They are all developed so well and Emily uses her skills to draw readers into this series even more, with the second book.

Keep up the wonderful work Emily!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm hooked! March 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Taking off from the ending of Charmeine, as a reader, you are whisked away into the bliss of Tabbruis and Charmeine and their deep love for one another. Such compassion and reverence for each other, you just have to wonder how they will ever function in the world. They seem to be so passionately occupied with each other. While reading, I visualize the melting and glowing that encases the room whenever they enter. They soon find out that Shane is more than just a great friend of Charmeine and that her motherly tendencies ran deeper than she had originally thought when it came to their friendship. With the power and the money flowing freely, Shane is able to get his girlfriend back into the picture and the foursome have some remarkable tales to tell around the kitchen table which now seems to be getting quite full. With Neal, Dmitri, Thomas and the two couples there are some great stories to be told and you get your share of them in this novel but let's not forget that we are dealing with the Blood-Hunters and the Light-Bearers for which trouble still brews. For once in her life, Charmeine feels happy and content and wants to relax and enjoy life, yet with her being a Light-Bearer and her mission there is other things she must accomplish. There is tension in the air as we close out the novel as their unknown future hangs in the air and yet the compassion still runs deep as their lives are just beginning. Can love handle the test of time and war?

More About the Author

Emily wanted to tell the story of two star-crossed lovers who had to battle Heaven and Hell to be together. "CHARMEINE" was inspired and she never dreamed a week later she would have over a 100,000 words written. When she writes, it is similar to you or I watching a movie.She pictures the characters in her head going through vivid descriptions of each scene. There are so many nuances going through her mind that she cannot type fast enough. "CHARMEINE" is the first novel in "The Light-Bearer Series." The Second Novel is "MACTUS." Followed by the Third Novel, "ACCENDO." The Fourth Novel, "SEDITIOUS," will be released in 2014. The Fifth Novel in "The Light-Bearer Series," is a block-buster... "RANSOM," which will be released in 2015. She is currently writing the Sixth Novel, "CONUNDRUM," to be released in the winter of 2016.

Emily is an Author at PDMI Publishing. She also works at a Fortune 500 company, has her Master of Business Administration and owns her own Publishing, LLC. Between Work, Writing, and taking care of family, she runs on coffee and determination!
