Seers of Light Review

Seers of Light (Light, #1)Seers of Light by Jennifer DeLucy


My rating: 4 of 5 stars


When I read the first chapter of Seers of Light on http://omnificpublishing.com/ right away I knew I wanted to read the whole book! I instantly loved the heroine of the story, Lily Hunt, for her warmth and spunk. (And she even has big feet like I do). Because she's a character I cared about deeply, her frightening first encounter with a paranormal creature in her bedroom really FREAKED me out.

But not all of the supernatural beings in this fic are creepy. Some *coughs* William/Christian *coughs* are quite the opposite--yummy and huggable! I'm a newcomer to the paranormal romance genre, and I thoroughly enjoyed the foray into the battle between sentients and vampires. The "soul merge" was so damn cool. And the sex scenes were quite "touching" hee hee.

My favorite part of the novel was the well-written dialogue, which often had me chuckling and really brought the characters to life. Here's one example on page 75:

Lily: "And do you care to explain how this is done?"
William: "Just trust yourself. It's in you to know this stuff."
Lily: "Ugh, please, Mr. Miyagi. Spare me the wax on, wax off."
William: "Must you ALWAYS be so unpleasant?
Lily: "No, not always . . . just with you."

Another favorite quote, page 183:

"And I praised Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Allah, Santa Claus, and Oprah all at once as he kissed me, pressing my body into the wood, leaving me absolutely incapable of standing on my own two feet."

Ha ha ha and oo la la!

I also really enjoyed Jen DeLucy's reworking of the Narcissus legend. And the ending between William and Christian was quite satisfying.

Fortunately for me, the sequel, Whispers of Light, will be released by Omnific Publishing TOMORROW! (10/26/10). Yeah! Great job, Jen. Thank you for sharing Lily's world with us.

Seers! Great review - you really captured the "spirit" of the story, hehehe. That first scene with the paranormal creature IS chilling and stands out so vividly in my mind.

Hmm, guess who I have an interview will that I'll go post right now - Ms. DeLucy and it's all about Whisper of Light!

Hey, great minds think alike! I'm going to interview her tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by, Nicki. :)

I haven't commented here although I've lurked for a while as I procrastinate on things I should be doing. You had me at 'sexy vegetables', I mean, how could I not return?

Love the review by the way. My 'to read' list just got a bit longer. Page 183's quote reeled me in. I love paranormal anything.

Okay, back to work.

Hey Renee! Thanks for the laughs this morning. I was procrastinating a little on your blog too, drooling over Clive. I might also have to post a photo of my favorite actor, who inspired me to write. *sighs happily*

Seers of Light is a great read! I'm just about to post my interview with the author. Jen xx

Ooh, young adult paranormal is all the rage! I haven't read many of them *so my next statement may be just plain wrong* but Seers sounds rather unique! Sentients battling vampires... intriguing!

I don't know much about the genre (actually Seers isn't young adult) but I really enjoyed this paranormal story.
