Here’s the cover reveal of Jennifer DeLucy‘s book, Circle of Light, which is due out in October. It’s the third book in the Light series. I loved bothSeers of Light, and Whisper of Light, and I look forward to reading to Jennifer’s newest book.
Empath and Pathcrosser to the dead, Lillian Hunt has finally come into her own as a Sentient being. All seems well in her brave new world…that is, until a tragic turn sends her tight-knit Sentient group on a rescue mission through lore-infested Europe. Their goal is to save the love of Lily’s life—vampire Sentient, William Maddox—from both the prejudice of their own society and the dark intentions of ancient vampires. But how will they keep hope alive, even as time runs out?
Circle of Light is a brilliant finale to The Light Series. DeLucy once again delivers gripping paranormal encounters, irresistible character interactions, and beautiful testaments to the power of pure, unselfish love—but it all burns at a higher intensity in this concluding adventure. Readers will come away from Circle of Light with a satisfying sense of closure…although certain Sentients may be less than happy with their ever after.
Book Three of the Light Series: Seers of Light, Whisper of Light, and now Circle of Light.
After putting myself through the trauma of choosing an order for my Top 10 Books for 2011 I decided I deserved a reprieve for my favorite Top 10 Book covers. They are presented in no particular order, but I loved them all. Several of them were what drew my interest to the book in the 1st place.
I’m afraid in this day and age of ebook popularity that book covers aren’t given as much thought and attention as they should receive. I believe that’s a huge mistake. Whether I’m in a book store browsing, looking online, or perusing a publishers site, I’m still drawn in by a great book cover. Sometimes it’s the colors that catch my eye, sometimes it’s the design/ picture/text, and sometimes it’s all. I work in retail as a merchandiser when I’m not doing this, and my boss has a saying he’s fond of…It’s a 5 second decision for customers.
I don’t know how much input an author has on his/her book cover, but authors if you do have anything to say in the matter make sure your book cover speaks for you.
Jennifer DeLucy has created a unique, enchanting tale of destiny and the ageless power of love in her debut novel, Seers of Light. DeLucy’s novel charms readers with quirky characters, while sketching a haunting portrait of one woman’s journey on the path of the supernaturally gifted. But be prepared. Once you’ve entered the world of Seers, you will never be the same.
Here’s what I thought:
This story grabbed my full attention right from the start, and held on till the finish. I like that in a book. The characters are well written and the pacing is quick. I love it when a story really hits me emotionally, and Seers of Light does that. I love the paranormal genre, so I’m always pleased when I find an author that gives me something new in that arena.
There are quite a few characters in this book, so I will limit myself to the 3 main characters, Lily, William, and Christian. I like Lily. I like her a lot. I think if I met her in real life that we would be friends. She handles being thrust into a whole new life without whining. I find her courageous. The new life includes Christian and William. I admit that I liked Christian more in the beginning, but as the story moved on and I got to know William better…I am 100% Team William now. Christian is arrogant which is a characteristic that I’m usually attracted to in my fictional men. From Christian tho it just comes across as bossy and selfish, not confident and sexy. Go figure?!? William is sensitive to Lily’s moods and needs, and that makes for one very SEXY dood.
One thing that caught my eye at the authors website was this interesting tidbit:
***Amazing news! We are pleased to announce that a major movie production company has expressed interest in Jennifer DeLucy’s Seers of Light As of now, there is nothing set in stone, but Omnific would like to extend congratulations to Jen for writing such a compelling series. We are so proud to have you with Omnific, and are eagerly anticipating the third book in the Light Series, coming this winter!***
There is also a book trailer that I thought was really well done, so I wanted to share.
