Book Review: Queene of Light by: Jennifer Armintrout

Summary: An unimagined destiny an undeniable passion. In a time not long from now, the veil between fantasy and reality is ripped asunder creatures of myth and fairytale spill into the mortal world. Enchanted yet horrified, humans force the magical beings Underground, to colonize the sewers and abandoned subway tunnels beneath their glittering cities. But even magic folk cannot dwell in harmony and soon two Worlds emerge: the Lightworld, home to faeries, dragons and dwarves; and the Darkworld, where vampires, werewolves, angels and demons lurk. Now, in the dank and shadowy place between Lightworld and Darkworld, a transformation is about to begin....

Ayla, a half-faery, half-human assassin is stalked by Malachi, a Death Angel tasked with harvesting mortal souls. They clash. Immortality evaporates, forging a bond neither may survive. And in the face of unbridled ambitions and untested loyalties, an ominous prophecy is revealed that will shake the Worlds.


Wow, was exactly what I was thinking after I closed the cover of this book. I wasn't expecting much; I honestly admit, because I heard some so-so reviews, they were completely wrong. I dived into this book head first and it gave me the literary oxygen my body needed...there are twists and turns, a few bumps-but easily handled-and it was smooth gliding until the end. I did get a bit of Gothic feel from this book, just like Jennifer Armintrout's Turning series...there is some Gothic feel to that series as well, but I didn't mind at all. Ms. Armintrout took this series to a whole level about her Turning series...completely, there was some stumbling at the beginning, I had to take time to let my brain process the new world, there was a bit too much fact pushed on the brain to start, but once I got the world's "condition", everything just clicked. I love her characters as well, it's truly like they are completely disgusted by one another yet they are driven by a force they don't comprehend, and they fight a bit for it and then everything works out. Ayla's character is a strong one as well...she is a warrior and knows what she wants for herself and isn't afraid to go after it. This book was a truly enjoyable read, I already have Child of Darkness in my TBR pile. Can't wait.
