Pat Bertram's new novel--Light Bringer--defies classification, but that doesn't mean it isn't a fantastic read. I would characterize Light Bringer as a complex and involving story with elements of mystery, science fiction and adventure novels. The characters are well drawn and the settings, especially those in the desert, are often hauntingly beautiful. Definitely recommended!

Pat Bertram's latest novel grabs you from the first page and holds on! There was no doubt that when that baby girl found her way to the home of Helen Jenks, she would be there to stay. And if that meant that Helen and her little girl would be forced to pick up and relocate on a moment's notice, then that would be what Helen would do to keep her safe.

She knew the child's intelligence was very high, even from the beginning. She didn't speak right away, but she was able to communicate. But nothing prepared Helen for the morning she heard singing--the song spoke of loneliness, of loss, and perhaps of love found, though the child spoke no words. It was the next morning, however, when the child answered "Rena," when asked what she should be called.

Helen was no longer alive when Rena came back home to the town where she had first appeared... At this time she was going by the name of Becka Johnson. She had moved into a little cabin that was known to be haunted. It was only later she would be shown the secret garden in which flowers grew with bright, almost brilliant colors that made all others seem colorless...

At the same time, not too far away, a young man, close in age to Rena, was trying to talk to the two men who had appeared at his door. He was, admittedly, nervous--after all, he did have something to hide. Or, rather, there was something hidden in his apartment. The men claimed they worked for the National Security Agency, but Philip still didn't know what to say. They apparently had not sent it. So finally, in the only way he had thought of, he showed what was there with them...

Only later was Philip pushed out of his apartment and into his car--into the passenger seat.

I'm already a fan of Pat Bertram's books. I've read them all and loved them deeply. But LIGHT BRINGER was something completely new and surprising... surprising in its freshness, originality, its genre bending brilliance. Part thriller, part fantasy, part sci fi, part mystery...its plots were large and complex, encompassing themes that plague us every day; offering social and world commentary blended with weather trend observations (where ARE all those tornadoes and tsunamis coming from??) I do believe Bertram has defined a new genre, and it is a pure delight. Fresh. Original. Riveting. The characters are real and engaging. I particularly enjoyed the bit of romance between Luke and Jane - yes, another subplot. I couldn't put it down and extend my highest compliments to Ms. Bertram for her supremely smooth writing - there are no hiccups in this book.

Very highly recommended.

NIGHT BRINGER by Author PAT BERTRAM has left my mind swirling . . . still!

As a boy, I thought Flash Gordon, Spaceships and Aliens were just the comical imaginations of some werid people. Than came the Gemini, the Apollo programs and the Landing of Man on the Moon - - - followed by the amazing SPACE SHUTTLE fleet. Star Trek, Star Wars, ET . . . WOW . . .

PAT BERTRAM has written such a mind-boggling novel of Science (I hesitate to call it fiction), Adventure, Mystery, Government Conspiracies (we all know they're good at that) . . . NIGHT BRINGER is such a well crafted novel, I am now convinced . . . I am a BELIEVER . . . YES, there are ALIENS . . . and they are probably walking among us . . . but I want to believe they are friendly, so I will . . . until . . .

I could not put this book down! It had me taxing my brain, could this be possible? Could this be REAL?

I'll let you decide, reach your own conclusions . . . but I think YOU will truly enjoy this very exciting novel. I am now a Bona Fide fan of Author PAT BERTRAM and intent on reading her other crafty novels.

I was confused right from the beginning and stayed that way to the very end. Some things did come to light, but for the most part this was out of my comfort zone. I gave it a chance as I kept reading and did finish, but I was left with many questions and maybe that was the whole reasoning behind Ms. Bertram's story.

This story had me puzzled from the beginning when a baby shows up on the doorstep of a nurse. No footprints leading away from the house and only a few small ones that leads up to the house. This is not a normal baby as it sings and walks and talks rather fast. The nurse questions things at first but after a few days she just accepts this.

After this young baby reaches adulthood and loses the mother that raised her in hiding, she goes on a quest that brings her to a small town that seems to also be gathering others that are brought here for some reason or other.

Becka Johnson and Philip Hansen are both drawn to Chalcedony, Colorado. Not sure what their connection is to each other either. You also have a UFO hunter and her sister. While the hunter goes missing her sister is questioned by some agency to find out what she knows.

Weird things have been going on around this town since the 70's and UFO sightings. Are they connected? I can't divulge that information.

Outside of town there is a field of brightly colored flowers that sing and house some wonderful displays of light. They make you feel good. Colors play a big part in the story. The universe, hidden secrets, extra planets, invisible beings, theories, physics, astronomy, mythology; a town lost in time where people still sit around playing games such as Chinese checkers.
