Queene Of Light

Romance Paranormal | Fantasy

When the veil between the human world and Faerie tears open, the worlds collide with disastrous results for both sides. Eventually the humans manage to banish the Otherworlders underground where they split into two factions; light and dark.

It is in the Darkworld that Ayla, a half-faery assassin, meets and soon bests Malachi, a fallen angel. His immortality stripped from him, Malachi stalks Ayla with revenge first-and-foremost on his mind. He blames her for his fall, his new mortality and his expulsion from the angelic ranks. In his fevered mind, every bad thing that's happened to him can and will be laid directly on her doorstep.

When the two finally face off, they bond in a way neither one expects. Ayla's first duty is to her Queene and a relationship of any kind with a Darkling is strictly forbidden. Consumed by thoughts of Ayla, Malachi follows her into the Lightworld, which he will, almost certainly, not survive. With salvation again within reach, Malachi first must face the political intrigue and many deceptions of the Faery Court, where he finds himself in the middle of a war that should have nothing to do with him. But he finds it impossible to turn away and leave Ayla to face her fate alone.

Armintrout has her own distinct voice. Her characters are multi-layered and far from perfect. For supernaturals they are surprisingly human with all our failings and foibles. She takes the fae and makes them her own, much like she did with vampires in her previous series. With so many paranormal romances on the market, it's hard to stand out. Armintrout does a beautiful job; her story is fresh, her world detailed, her characters memorable. Two more books will soon follow QUEENE OF LIGHT -- I can't wait to see how it all turns out.
