Book Review--Armor of Light

The Armor of Light by Karen Hoover is the second book in The Wolfchild Saga. I have to say that I enjoyed this one much more than the first book. Making a statement like that, I feel like I need to have a sure reason but I can't pinpoint one thing in particular. I loved the new characters introduced and found myself cheering for Ember and Kayla more than ever. The character development made me more attached to everyone. I could feel the heartache and the joy of each character. There were lots of twists and turns, some I expected, others I didn't but I'm sure excited to see where it goes from here. This is a book I can recommend to any and everyone who loves a new world full of intrigue, love, betrayal, and much more. It receives a :):):):):)

Here is a blurb taken from Amazon, a link to Karen's website and a sample chapter (if this isn't enough to get you hooked, I don't know what will!) from the book, as well as where you can get it (Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble). Let me know what you think!

Ember has been accepted into the mage academy, but not without cost. She has gained a new enemy, ancient and dark, whose entire purpose is to destroy all white magic and her along with it. After nearly losing her life in a brutal attack, DeMunth is assigned her guardian, and the keystone he wears, The Armor of Light, begins the transition that will make it a true power.

Kayla has lost most everything of importance to her—the people, the prestige, and all she fought for the past ten years. With nothing left to lose, she continues her search for the birthplace of The Sapphire Flute and the Wolfchild she believes to be its player. Her journey will take her to strange, foreign, and often dangerous places, and everything she had thought to be true will be proven wrong.

In a showdown full of betrayal and heroic loss, Ember and Kayla finally meet on the battlefield, fighting a war on two fronts—against C'Tan and her people, and the mysterious enemy bent on destroying all magic—the shadow weavers.

The story is full of power, betrayal, hope, and love. The elements of the universe are coming together, and none can know who will stand in the end.
