QUEENE OF LIGHT
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy
As readers of Armintrout's Blood Ties series already know, she excels at building realistic new worlds. That skill is much in evidence here as well, and both conflict and characterization are also fine. The only problem: The first half of the book drags, despite the amount of action.
NOTE: This is the first title in Armintrout's Lightworld/Darkworld Series.
While tracking a werewolf through the sewers of the Darkworld, half-human/half-faery Lightworld
Back in the Lightworld, Ayla becomes betrothed to Garret, the brother of Mabb, the faery queene. Unbeknownst to Ayla, Garret has a hidden agenda -- he means to take the throne from his sister and rule through Ayla. The appearance of Malachai -- who's seeking to resolve the feelings he now has for Ayla -- puts Garret's master plan in jeopardy, and endangers Ayla's very existence.
