Ashlyn – a free-spirited teenager whose peaceful life is shattered when the village elders honor her with a perilous quest to recover a stolen relic.
Zane – a jaded mercenary, torn by his undeniable desire for Ashlyn and the dark secret that could make her hate him forever.
Delistaire – a malevolent sorcerer driven by an insatiable lust for power.
All three are bound together by an ancient relic supposedly infused with the power of a Goddess.
Shadow Fire – adventure, passion, secrets, and betrayal
As Ashlyn and Zane race to stay one step ahead of the evil lurking in the shadows, their passions are ignited and their bond strengthens. But will they find the relic before Delistaire? Or has their entire quest been orchestrated from the very beginning by a madman in pursuit of ultimate power?
*Each installment of the Light Chronicles is a standalone story.
This was a good book. What I liked about it was that Ashlyn was not a whimpy female character. You know, the type right? Cry, cry, cry and wait to be save. There is a lot to absorb in this book. I don't think that is too much though but enough to let you know that there's going to be a second book. The characters and the plot are good. It starts out a little Hunger Games-y but it becomes its on book. Well done
Should you read it? Yes. Who should read it? Fans of fantasy and dystopian novels.PRAISE:
