Review: Of Light And Darkness By Shayne Leighton


"When one human stands before an army of impossible obstacles, the likelihood of overcoming them in this coming-of-age modern fairytale may result in war between light and darkness.
Abandoned as an infant in Prague, naive and strong-willed Charlotte Ruzikova was raised by one of the last Vampires left alive. As a human, she knows no other home than the one nestled deep in the woods of Eastern Europe, where Witches drew spells of enchantment, Phasers threw tea parties, and Elves are the closest in kin. Charlotte has lived her life in the dark with her Guardian, content to having him to herself and reveling in his attention, until she's realizes she wants more...
Resident medical doctor and Vampire, Valek Ruzik fears the day his ward would come of age and blossom into a fine woman, and he is forced to confront his own motives as time is of the essence once his past catches up to him, and their lives become endangered...
As genocide and war threatens their secret society, the dictator in power is ready to wipe out Valek's race, but Charlotte will not allow that to happen. Fighting for the only one she's ever loved and truly believed in, she will do whatever it takes to save their love...before the sun comes up and light takes over."

My Review:
Of Light and Darkness was absolutely flawless. The characters were sharp and defined, the adventure was almost non-stop, and the plot was pure gold. Honestly, I read to the second paragraph and I was instantly hooked. This book is the ultimate combination of magic, vampires, and romance, in this epic debut for the up and coming author Shayne Leighton. However I must say, what really caught me off guard was the books elegancy, they were no slow points or boring moments in of light and darkness, the whole book flowed through very easily,something you would expect from a well-seasoned author.
