5/5 Stars: E. Pena:
"I honestly didn't think I would end up loving this book. Something about vampires being overly done. This writer has real talent and some imagination!"

I found this book to be quite refreshing. It was everything that I looked for in my reading, but with twists that were unexpected and exhilarating. I loved the fact that the vampires didn't sparkle, and did exactly what vampire should do, which is be a vampire. Shayne didn't try to make the vampires attractive to teenage girls, but they still seemed to be. I have always been attracted to the concept of immortal beings that are dark and misunderstood, but maybe don't really want to be understood. Shayne presented this concept in a brand new light. I have read numerous books on vampires and supernatural beings but I found this one to be the most unique out of all of them.

The imagery presented in this book is brilliant, I felt like I was in the Occult City with the characters in the book. The main character Charlotte was dynamic and became a little heroine in the end even if at times she was a bit of a damsel in distress. She knew how to hold her own, but she still liked the help of her love Valek. The only thing that really bugged me in the story was the premise of Valek being Charlotte's fatherly figure and then becoming a love interest. I soon moved past this little quirk because I felt that the rest of the plot made up for it. I also figured that this was just another one of those unique aspects of this book that I hadn't seen in others.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I am eagerly waiting for the next one. Will you join the Occult City?

I honestly didn't think I would end up loving this book. Something about vampires being overly done. This writer has real talent and some imagination! I emailed her and wow she answered me back in a day. I am hoping it was her, but even if it wasn't what other writer does that? sweet girl, great talent, freaking awesome story, Thank you Shayne for making my days a lot less dull!!

I just recently read Of Light and Darkness and I was blown away. I haven't ever read a Young Adult novel quite like this one. The heroine is a human, found by a vampire near death as a baby, and raised by him as her daughter. However, he doesn't age and she does. Over time her feelings for him begin to change. There is a lot of angst and pain for the two of them. All of this is going on while a powerful organization is trying to kill them.

I think this author has a strong, different voice and I look forward to reading more from her in the future. Check this one out. You won't regret it.

I had this downloaded to my Kindle and took it on a business trip. I could not wait each night to get back to my hotel to contibue reading. This held my rspt attention from the very first page. The objective of a good book is to transport the reader into another time and place and to identify with the story. Of light and darkness definitely fits this. Hopefully we can look forward to many more years of Ms. Leighton's talented scribes and music,

My Summary:

Found by a vampire as a baby, Charlotte has lived in the mythical world all her life. Now as a young adult, she hunts for her vampire and questions the relationship they have. He has stopped being a father figure to her and started being something more. But the powers that be want him gone and another wants Charlotte as his own. Struggling to deal with the turmoil of the only world she's ever knows and her developing feelings for the one who raised her, Charlotte must figure out how to save all the ones she loves.

My Thoughts:

2 stars - not my taste but maybe yours

This book is a traditional vampire world with most of the common lore. I think I may prefer the more urban fantasy world of vampires compared to the traditional world. I don't care for the casual killing to survive that vampires do in the traditional worlds. I guess that makes me a western civilization girl, which is true.

The POV of the book moves between different characters. At first, the book spent a lot of time in Charlotte's head but then the POV started moving around a lot. At times, this confused me. I had developed an idea of a character and then I was in his head and it was really different than what I had thought before. Maybe I have 2 or 3 limit on points of view per book.

The idea of Charlotte being raised by Valek and then having him as a love interest was hard for me to deal with. I just couldn't get past it.

As for the plot, it wasn't predictable for me. That may have been because I was unclear about a few things. I didn't understand why in one situation, things were dangerous for Charlotte but then later in the same situation, it wasn't dangerous anymore.

What did I like about the book?

Format: Paperback
This is a book I went into with low expectations, mostly because vampires have been wildly overdone, and their stories can range anywhere from completely horrible to meh to brilliant. So, I wasn't sure where this book was going to fit in on that spectrum.

First of all, the synopsis of the story is great. It's unique, interesting, and quite amazing if done correctly. And I think Leighton did an amazing job. This is not your typical vampire book. The book is so well written, I was very impressed. I couldn't stop flipping through the pages, anxious to see what was going to happen next.

And, of course, I'm a sucker for romances. And this book did not disappoint in that department. Charlotte's not your typical heroine--she can take care of business herself sometimes.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, especially lovers of the supernatural genre. Out of five stars I would give this book five stars.
