Review

This series rocks in every way! ----Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author of the Lords of the Underworld series

Armintrout skillfully characterizes each character, and her use of description varies between chilling, beautiful, and disturbing. ----The Romance Readers Connection on Bloodties Book One: The Turning

The relationships between the characters are complicated and layered in ways that many authors don t bother with. ----Vampire Genre on Bloodties Book Two: Possession

Format: Mass Market Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Great Rift has relegated both faeries and demons to the Underworld - literally. Their new home is the human-built sewers and subway spaces. But even in this space, the two maintain carefully separate worlds, the Lightworld and Darkworld, with a thin border between that is home to the homeless of all races, including humans.

Ayla is a half-human, half faerie asssassin for the faerie court, bound by oath and training, and Malachi is a Death Angel, tasked with harvesting the souls of the dead. Their chance meeting and interaction from that point on have great consequences for all the denizens of the underground ways, ranging from plots to overthrow the Queene of faeries to involving the Dragons in the war between faeries and demons.

As a plot basis, the above is reasonable. But I found myself quite unimpressed with the final result, due to multiple factors. First, the romance between Ayla and Malachi has no solid grounding and very little exposition of growing attraction through interaction. To be believable, this needed much greater detailing, a more comprehensive look inside their heads and a consistent building towards their mutual attraction. Second was the Dark/Lightworld itself, as I could never get a good mental picture of it; the descriptions were too vague and concentrated on only a couple of aspects of the place, and what description there was seemed to imply that this world was very small - small enough to walk across in a day, which doesn't seem a reasonable size to host the stated multiple races. Third was the motivations of some the secondary characters, who as supposed immortals displayed a depressing venality and ambitions at odds with long life spans.

Jennifer Armintrout's "Queene of Light" is the first novel in her new "Lightworld/Darkworld" trilogy, and is set in a future where an apocalypse of literally Biblical proportions has occurred. Angels are trapped underground, as are mythical and semi-mythical creatures from the astral and ethereal planes (yes, Ms. Armintrout makes a distinction between the two, though it isn't particularly clear why from the novel as it isn't necessary to the plot in book one) such as fairies, Elves, trolls, demons and dragons. The underground -- our old subways and sewers -- has been divided into two realms, the Lightworld and the Darkworld. This doesn't exactly refer to the worth of the creatures in these two divided realms, but merely whether or not they still wish to fight the humans who live aboveground and cast them out -- the Lightworlders still want to fight, while the Darkworlders (including many magically-talented and artificially augmented humans) do not.

The book starts out promisingly with a young Assassin who's half-Fae (fairy), half-human, Ayla. Ayla has been assigned to track were-wolves and keep them out of the Lightworld and away from the Fae Court, ruled by Queen Mabb. Ayla is also the protegé of a very nasty Fae named Garret, who is the Queen's brother, and who can be quite charming when he feels like it. So when Ayla is asked to become Garret's mate, even though she feels something isn't right about Garret's request, she acquiesces -- mainly because Garret hasn't yet shown the worst aspects of his nature (which are plenty bad, as you'll see if you read this book).

But during the assignment to track and kill a were-wolf, Ayla inadvertently touches a Death Angel -- one of the Heavenly Host who was cast down when the Ethereal plane fell.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ayla is an assassin for the Faery Court of Lightworld. It is her duty to protect the innocent Fae of Lightworld, and to destroy those that may cause harm. Her most recent assignment brings her into Darkworld, the home of evil creatures and humans that were banned from the Up World. She is tracking a Werewolf, a vile creature that kills in it's wake. Ayla doesn't fear this creature, but she does fear the one that is tracking her.

Legend has it that there are Death Angels in Darkworld, powerful creatures that kill without mercy. Ayla can understand this, as it is her job to kill without missing a beat. When she realises that she is being followed by one of these Death Angels, she is ready for a fight. No one has lived to see another day after an encounter with one of these creatures, and she is determined to share her story.

Malachi is a Death Angel, and has no feelings for other creatures. It is his duty to remove creatures from the Darkworld that will cause harm to humans. When he encounters Ayla, he brings it upon himself to rid the world of the Fae creature. What he doesn't know is that Ayla is not only Fae, but half-human as well. Touching her is the end of his immortality, and now he is out for revenge.

This is the first installment in Jennifer Armintrout's new trilogy, Lightworld/Darkworld. I must say, that I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was written as though it were a historical novel, which was surprising to me, although it had a few modern things about it. Armintrout's characters fight with weapons such as swords, daggers, and axes, because this is what they were able to bring with them when they were banished beneath the streets of the Up World.

Armintrout's characters are very well rounded.
