Wow. Don't expect a run f the mill paranormal romance. Yes there is romance and sex, but there is also a strong and believable story line. Differences create fear, particularly when they might threaten the wealthy and the powerful. In this book like the first, there is segregation between those with magic and those without. Politics is decided by money rather than social justice. Lizzie is a politician hiding her magic and trying to better the lives of the magic born. Vadim runs an Underground Railroad to smuggle people to freedom. Unlike most urban fantasies there is no physical fighting. There is no violent rebellion. This does not stop the story from being exciting. More please!

Witchlight, Sonya Clark
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I loved Sonya’s first novel in this series, so was pleased to get this one for review. I’d felt from what we read of Vadim in book one that he was a really interesting character, and very different underneath from the surface image he projected. It was great to find him as a major character in this book.
The way the Magic Born are treated by the rest of the population is awful, herded into reservations, not given the same basic human rights as others and denied the chance to really live and love a free life. If “normal”  parents had a child that tested positive for magic it would be taken to Freaktown, the reservation, regardless of their wishes. Clearly for those  who could afford it, as always through bribes and false test results, children could be tested negative. That’s what happened to Elizabeth, and she’s been pressured and told to keep her magic hidden at all times. That comes at a cost though, and she’s mentally on the edge through the stress of controlling something that she’s never been properly taught. Vadim contacts her as he needs her position as Councillor, in order to access blank ID cards for those Magic Born he helps to escape to more sympathetic countries. Not all take the strong and rigid stance the US does.
Its a fear factor always, and I could see exactly this happening if there were people with magical abilities now. People are frightened of what they don’t understand, and anyone a bit different from the norm is subject to some form of discrimination. Any member of a minority group will tell you that. I became disabled in my mid thirties, an amputee, and yes, people do treat me differently.

This was a great book two. I got to see a lot of my favorite people from the first book, and the overall story arc really progressed in a great new way. As the government begins to try and limit the rights of the Magic Born even further, Elizabeth Marsden does everything she can to stand up for them and prevent the change from happening. But, her reasons aren't what everyone thinks they are. As a Magic Born living as a Normal, her lifestyle is in constant jeopardy of being uprooted and seeing her sent to Freak Town.

Vadim is a big secondary character in book one, and I really liked a chance to get to know him better. I just wish I had liked him a bit more. He has a really good side to him, but we saw most of it in the first book, and in the second we see other sides, but I didn't always like where it went. He's a bit of a tortured soul - and those are really hit and miss for me. I did enjoy a glimpse of his trickster younger self when he magics the Christmas ornaments though.

Elizabeth seemed a bit like a sacrificial lamb at times. She was an amazing character with some really fantastic motivation behind everything she does. Watching her cope with her untrained magic was so sad, but it all made sense. I really loved her, and I didn't quite see what she fell in love with in Vadim. She is really the center of the story though, so I got to see a lot of her. I can't wait to see what happens next in the world as the Magic Born become more restless and the Normals become more willing to forgive their past transgressions. It looks to be very exciting.

Vadim played a pretty big roll in TRANCEHACK and we got to know him a bit more than other secondary characters so I was glad to see he was being featured in WITCHLIGHT. He comes off as a pretty big bad boy and even though he is one, we get to witness his softer sides throughout WITCHLIGHT. Elizabeth (Lizzy) is new to us but we quickly get a feel of her personality and struggles as a Councilwoman and Magic Born in hiding. She has a lot of struggles in book 2 of the Magic Born series. She has to put her trust in someone that knows her secrets, learn to control her out of control magic and make some tough choices along the way.

The relationship between the two starts off pretty hot, takes a turn to luke warm when Vadim blackmails Lizzy and gets right back in the hot zone as they work together and get to know each other. By the end of the book they are of course in love and both of their lives are changed forever (Lizzy has the biggest change though).

They make a few appearances but I wish we would have seen more of Nathan and Calla together in WITCHLIGHT. I always like to have previous characters more involved in each book where different couples are featured. I really didn't get a feel for who might be featured next but I have a few characters I would like to see featured. Either way I hope that Clark gives us a nice glimpse into how Nathan, Calla, Vadim and Elizabeth are doing as their story is told.

I also would love to see more world building. We have a feel for the world the characters live in but it feels like we should know so much more by now. Even with my small complaints the Magic Born series has lots of promise on its side and I will continue it into book 3.
