Regarding characters, dewey-eyed submissives are not allowed in the female leads in Bringer of Light, thank you very much! But, and this is a great aspect of this story, the author doesn’t have an in-your-face feminist attitude in any character. Most of the women are are strong, capable, and in the world built by Boles assume no less. However, the lead is beautifully vulnerable, when appropriate for the story. Just great character development.
Stephen King is a believer that writing consists of three major elements: narration, description and dialogue. (On Writing published around 2007?) Bringer of Light has all that, to a degree unexpected from a new author.
Evil, death, fierce loyalty, love, a torture scene that will make you cringe, a conquering goodness, much, much more … and most fun of all … magic! Bringer of Light is a page-turner you will find difficult to put down. If you start reading in the evening, be prepared to stay up too late … I did. Enjoyed!!
Bringer of the light weaves a tale of a world full of magic. Magic that has been forbidden for fear of it's mis-use. But of course there is one who uses this to his advantage.
We follow Lynden, a Queens Champion, a loyal subject and a feirce warrior.
Discovering her unwanted gift of magic during an epic battle to save the king, Lynden instantly becomes an outcast. Feared and regected by those she saved Lynden is forced to flee, hoping to not only save her own life but to continue to fight for her queen behind the scenes for the battle is far from over.
This is a story of strength. A tale of finding ones self and accepting what you discover. Lynden encounters love, loyalty and mysteries as she journeys to learn how to control and use her new found magic.
I loved the characters in Bringers of the light. From Lynden's fellow champion sisters, to the Queen, to the two men she must eventually choose between. Jonathon is a strong character in himself.
I wish there had been more inner dialogue so I could understand how Lynden was feeling and processing all her new situations. Especially when it came to how she felt during the developing romances and the discovery of her magic.
I also wish there had been more history woven in, we get hints but it is written as if we should simply know the information, I had to put aside many questions as I read because they never seemed to get answered.
Aside from those points though, the author does a fantastic job in painting a world worth saving. She populates it with vibrant people, and constructs a plausable and interesting society.
When creating an entire world it is difficult to give every detail and the why's of them, but the writing in Bringer of the Light does not distract from the story as it draws you in to experience it to it's fullest.
Well done! Looking forward to following these characters into the next two books in the trilogy!
The two male characters who help her both want more from her, and eventually she'll have to choose between them. The romance is delivered with a light hand and doesn't impede the forward momentum of the plot. I'm glad I wasn't the author and didn't have to make the choice between them. They're both interesting guys. I couldn't decide which to root for.
Older mentors and younger friends round out the cast. They all add color to the story. Don't get too attached to any of them, though. The author is not afraid to strip her lead of the people who support her. Wondering who survives and who doesn't will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I liked that while this book is the first in a series, it had a complete storyline. Yes, there are open issues to launch the next book, but there's also a feeling of roundness and closure and change. We aren't dumped off on a cliffhanger wondering what the characters learned from their experiences. Kudos to the author for displaying the talent to pull this off. I'll be looking forward to the next in the series.
The Kingdom of Arten is in trouble. An ancient enemy is poised to attack, strong in magic. But the Kingdom has forbidden the use magic, which makes the Dark Mage Mercer all the more formidable an enemy. He is as a sly and deceptive as he is powerful.
The story focusses on the Queen’s champion, Lynden. She is a strong woman, but in many ways she does not know herself. This becomes clear when, in defending the Queen from a savage attack, she uses a magic she did not know she had. While this saves the Queen’s life, the law does not bend. She escapes with her life, but loses pretty much everything in the process.
I enjoyed this story. The women are strong, but not heartless, and the world is rich. In many ways, Lynden is forced to uncover the mystery of who she is, as much the other mysteries of the world. The romantic entanglements were elegantly woven, and another layer of complexity (in a good way).
Most of the threads are tied up nicely by the time the book ends, but there are enough dangling hooks to get me excited about the next instalment.
