Review: The Light of the World - Tara Brown

The Light of the World (Light, #1)The Light of the World by Tara Brown
Danielle's rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can’t say I’ve read anything like this before, but I was definitely surprised – in a good way!

I could feel the passion between Wyatt and Rayne, but also their angst and confusion. The book had me sucked in from the beginning, wanting to know more and more. I almost skipped to the end at one point just so I could find out what happens – but I didn’t!

Rayne thinks she finally has some freedom by going off to college on her own, but she quickly realises that there was a reason she was told to follow so many rules. Meeting Wyatt turns her world upside down – and his. She soon finds herself learning answers to questions that she hadn’t even asked and her world as she knows it will never be the same.

Throw in a love triangle, witches, angels, devils and a cliff hanger – You’ve got yourself one hell of a book.
As if going off to college isn't hard enough, Rayne discovers she has other challenges beyond roommates or first-year workload.
She discovers the fate of the world resting on her small shoulders, not to mention the creepy whispers that taunt her in her sleep each night.
In the haze of her dreams she hears it, 'You're dead. You're dead and I just forgot to tell you.' 
The sentence is alarming in itself.
Add to that, the voice whispering to her is her mother's and you have a real nightmare.

But what happens when the whispers in your sleep are warnings and the ghosts in the water are your friends?
What happens when the guy you fall for freshmen year is your family's oldest enemy?
What happens when the only sleep you get is when you lie with the dead, and the only way to save yourself is to murder your parents?

With the help of her new friends and old lovers, Rayne discovers her destiny has very little to do with midterms and more to do with the fate of humanity.
