Editorial Reviews


I am super excited for the next book to come out, and I really hope more people discover how great this is because I have my fingers crossed for a movie! (yes, it's MOVIE Good)
Loved it! This book made me cry and cheer. I didn't want it to end. It has moments of twisted horror and opposing moments of tenderness. So very well written.
Tragedy, heartbreak, humor, romance and murder... All I can say is wow, the imagery in this book is so graphic that you can see it. Kim Cormack has got a real way with words. I don't want to wait to find out what happens next. 
One chapter and you will be hooked! By the end, you will feel like you have known each character your entire life. I could not have anticipated the twists and turns in this story and had a hard time putting it down.
This is an outstanding novel! I didn't want to put it down. Correction: I couldn't put it down. This is a longer novel, roughly 500 pages, but every one of those pages are needed. Kim builds the story up in a way I haven't seen in a long time. She builds the back story of Kayn and Kevin thus building the bond the have together as well as with Chloe. I would have like a little more story on Chloe. She was a big part of Kayn, but we don't know much about her personality and what else made her the darker one. Readers get a small glimpse into not only Ankh but the other clans, I am sure the other novels will continue with the story of Ankh.
Kevin's gone and what was left of Kayn's family is deceased, so what now? As she attempts to create a relationship and life with a new family, Kim Cormack's main character, Kayn, is haunted by the truth that things won't ever be the same. Will she accept the fate she has been dealt, which requires her to forget about Kevin? Will she find a rhythm with Frost and evolve into a true member of Ankh? Or will she remain loyal to a lost love and jeopardize everything? These are just some of the questions readers will find themselves asking as they become engulfed in "Enlightenment." But more importantly, was Cormack able to deliver another good read?

In the first few chapters readers are re-accumulated with the characters mentioned in book I. As the story unfolds we get a better understanding of the different members of Ankh. In fact, the story reads like the great preparation before the epic storm, and then all hell breaks loose.

Filled with humor and scenes that make you blush, Cormack shows readers that she isn't a one dimensional author. Within this novel, there is a depth of symbolic meanings that will leave impressions on readers. There is also a story that will capture the imagination of ever booklover. However, at times the story has its slow sections or areas in which one may wonder, "Why was this event needed in the story?" Yet, readers will learn that Cormack has a reason for everything, and she so brilliantly tells this story. So don't fret, because in fact this story is told in breadcrumbs.

Leaving no stone unturned Cormack allows readers to journey through Kayn's attempt to become enlightened, and trust me when I say the treats at the end will have you soaring the sky.
I was fortunate to receive a copy of this book before it was released. I immediately loved it. I got into it right away and the story is really original and different from other paranormal fantasy books. I couldn't wait to finish but I didn't want to be done!

I'm an adult and loved it but I think any young adult would enjoy this story. I know a lot of people will compare it to Twilight and Harry Potter and while it definitely deserves to be up there with both series (people who loved those will love this too) - this feels totally different, fresh and original.
"Enlightenment" is the second in the "Children of Ankh" series and quickly picks up as Kayne attempts to find closure from her lost love Kevin, while dealing with confusing feelings toward Frost, building lifesaving bonds with her team, and preparing for Enlightenment. As much as I enjoyed the first book, I liked this one more. It was a longer story, but far quicker read and keeps you on the edge of your seat through all the twists and turns. There were times that I wanted to tell Kayne "just move on", all while my heart was breaking for her. The "test" was an accumulation of all the horrible ways to die and I did at times think "enough already, let the poor people move on", but there are some fantastic life lessons. This book also ends in a cliff hanger making you salivate for the next story. I obviously rate this book 5 hearts.

"What would you do if you discovered that everything you've ever known to be your reality was a lie?"
Kim Cormack's paranormal fantasy Enlightenment, book 2 in the Children of Ankh series, makes readers question this very thing. This masterpiece is the very essence of action, adventure, suspense, power, romance, and raw emotion. Right from the first page, while providing background information on relatable characters and drawing the reader into a story that they will never want to end and will never, ever forget, Cormack slams the reader with a plethora of emotions. You will feel. You will hurt. Be prepared for it. I teared up quite a few times. At the same time, the story is amazing and its pacing is perfect. While you may want to read the first book just to have read the series in order, I don't believe it's not necessary. I myself was able to follow each part of the story easily. I won't give it all away, but I will say that Kim is a master of her craft. I stayed up late into the night reading this one and could not put it down. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the Children of Ankh series. Enlightenment was amazing!
