HOLY INTENSE-NESS BATMAN!! Brighter Than The Sun is written from Reyes POV...from like the very beginning pretty much, starting from when he was in the horrible Earl's, "care". As I was reading, I found myself crying for Reyes, intrigued by all that he was and all that he went through and completely awed by Charlie, the one being that saved him, gave him peace, and brought real goodness to him. I mean this book will break your heart but at the same time, will have you completely understanding and appreciating Reyes in a WHOLE NEW LIGHT!
With every evil thing done to him, and because of who his REAL dad was, I found myself totally amazed by the person who he is today and his power and his almost complete selfishness. He did things to not only protect Charley (finally we get to see all that he has done for her) but to protect others...all because of the person Charley is. This book totally took my breath away as well as shredded my heart, and made me even love Reyes even MORE than I already did.
Darynda Jones is one of the most talented writers I know. Only she can put together a story that is heartbreaking and mesmerizing at the same time. Even though Reyes world was torturous for most of his existence, I still freaking LOVED it! I mean its hard not to love a being who is out of this world sexy, and captivating and just plain wonderful. I loved finally seeing how Reyes came to meet Charley and seeing how things were from the other side of the tracks. A truly phenomenal story! I gave Brighter Than The Sun a STUNNING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its breathtaking, heartbreaking, and freaking fabulous! I am SO glad to finally get Reyes TRUE POV.
You do not have to have read up through Eighth Grave to read this. It would be appropriate to read this any time after First Grave, though I would personally recommend reading several of the Graves before reading this only because you'd have a greater appreciation for the character of Reyes before sailing on this dark and revealing voyage.
This is a dark book and remember that both Charley and Reyes were victims of sexual abuse as children. Reyes contented with Earl his entire childhood. Charley was taken by Ethan as a young kid. So reader's keep these facts in mind before you start reading, as this is not an easy read.
You will understand why Reyes stays under Earl's abusive control. Yes, readers of the series know Reyes has a younger sister, but in this novella you feel the depth of his love for her. Why he would let a monster touch him, despite him being someone who could have snapped his neck easily. Fear makes Reyes sacrifice himself for the love of his shy sisters
Should you read it? It isn't essential to the series, as it doesn't impede the continuity of the series if you skip it. But it is a well written and heart breaking tale of survival. Reyes is the best characters in paranormal fantasy, as every girl should be in love with a dude who will severe spines for her.
Definitely not a happy story but it wasn’t as difficult as I feared even though you’ll wish you could jump into the story and help him. You do learn more about him and will appreciate him even more than you did before.
If you’re reading this series you’ll want to read this one. And now I want to go back and re-read that first book.
I have to start the review by telling you that this is not your typically Charley Davidson book. This is not the light hearted fun full of Charley antics story. When I received this book to review I was given a warning that this book was dark. Very dark!!! If you read the excerpt below you will get a glimpse of how dark, sad and heartbreaking this story is. Fans of Charley’s series already know some of what happened to Reyes as a kid but in Brighter Than the Sun we unfortunately get an upclose and personal view of his world as a kid.
After reading Brighter Than the Sun, I can safely say that I love Reyes even more than I did before. Reyes lived through hell in his childhood. It was beyond heartbreaking to read/listen to his back story. It was heartbreaking to read/listen to him when he first meets Charley. It is heartbreaking to read/listen to the things that happen to Charley.
It was great to see just how much Reyes loves Charley. How much from the first moment of Charley’s life that Reyes was there. This story was beyond heartbreaking to suffer with Reyes, but seeing Charley though his eyes and to learn just how important she is to him was wonderful.
Ms. King does an amazing job of reading this story to us as always. I am looking forward to the next installment of this series.
Charley & Reyes fans will enjoy this story even if they need to make sure to have a good supply of tissues close by.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from MacMillan Audio in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
