I don't really read this genre as a rule, however, I received a copy of this book and I have to say that I was immediately intrigued.

This book has far more to offer than just a novel take on the "paranormal" world.

Author Jennifer Armintrout has created a world, without a world in this new novel and I thought it was imaginative. It actually made me sit back and think about how our own world was created and if there is, in fact, always a need for a dark side in any world that exists.

The basis of this book is clever - fairies in all their forms are starting to live side to side with humans - however, the humans don't want this so they banish the ferries to the underground - however, as the fairies create their own world - they discover there is a dark side and now, both worlds will be forcced to battle it out.

As I mentioned, I thought this was both clever and highly thought provoking. The writing was also wonderful and overall, I did enjoy this book even if it is not my usual cup of tea.

Jennifer Armintrout has written a very fine introductory novel to a fantasy trilogy dealing primarily with an Earth where the worlds of supernatural creatures such as faeries, trolls, and dragons has directly collided with than of humankind. There has been a rift and a war and in consequence, the Faeries now reside in a "world" of their own called Lightworld which coexists with a Darkworld underneath the human dominated world of the surface. Angels, including Death Angels, are also grafted onto …

Regarding the book Queene of Light, I'm not going to bore you with intricate details on this book. Too many times I find myself rambling with long explanations - that boils down to one thing. Yeah I liked the book. Well, for Queene of Light, yes I did like it. But, I also had some major problems with it. First off, let me tell you why I liked it. For one, the concept was interesting and original. Secondly, it was well written and the plotlines were tight. Thirdly, the tone of the book was consistent.  &nb …

This series rocks in every way! ----Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author of the Lords of the Underworld series

Armintrout skillfully characterizes each character, and her use of description varies between chilling, beautiful, and disturbing. ----The Romance Readers Connection on Bloodties Book One: The Turning
