*****************************************************************



And now, FRACTURED LIGHT
by Rachel McClellan


Expected publication: February 8th, 2012

Goodreads Blurb:
I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice.

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.

In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end.

This story held me from beginning to end. I loved the main character, Llona--her light abilities are unusual and fascinating. The storyline and pacing flowed well for me, and the ending was totally satisfying. I'm ready for the next in the series without feeling like she left me hanging. Plus, the mystery, tension, and romance blend perfectly to make it a winner. I recommend it!! :-)
