Publication Date:  28 Aug, 2012

Summary:


 In the beginning...there were Vampire

Man’s fall from grace sparked the birth of the Dark creatures from the underworld. To counter the explicit threat to mankind, divinely-created immortals were brought forth. The Witch encompassed seven Castes of power; their magic was most effective against the nefarious agenda pursued by the evil ones.

She is Chosen... 
Kaitriana’s gift of magic is unrivaled. A descendant of the most powerful Ancient in existence, her birth was foretold ages before her time. Destined to lead the Witch faction, she is betrayed by her own kind, destroying her birthright and all hope of delivering the Realm from the sinister shadow of the Ancient Dark. 

He is the Key...
Lorcan is a mighty warlord in the Vampire species. His animosity towards the magical immortals is personal - his mother was their Queen. Having long since severed all ties with his former kin, his existence remains plagued by the repercussions of her treachery and a secret that threatens to be his downfall. 

They are the Prophecy...
An arcane prophecy from the time of the Ancients proclaims that only two in all of creation can bring peace to the Realm. When Kaitriana miraculously appears seeking his protection, Lorcan must forsake his duty and disregard the dictates of his breed to shelter the female. Together they must combat the Ancient Dark and surmount the forces within their own factions that would oppose the Prophecy. Their fates have always been entwined and only when joined can they triumph over a blood feud that has shadowed the Light for millennia.

About the Ancients of Light series

Chosen is the first in the thirteen books of the Ancients of Light series and is only the beginning of a young Witch’s journey toward developing both the strength of character and magic that will be required to fulfill her prophesied role as leader of the Light faction. 

Revelations of nuances in the Prophecy - facets that were never fully comprehended by the Ancients - will continue in successive stories. The culmination of its true meaning in the destiny of the supernatural world of the Realm will only be revealed when Kaitriana is adequately prepared to lead the Warriors now being called together to champion the Light’s purpose. 

Familiar characters return for each storyline as the focus turns to a new key couple in every book - a pair that significantly factors into the purpose of Light – however, the story of the Chosen does not end with Book #1. Kaitriana and Lorcan, their growth together as partners in leadership and in love as a couple, will thread through the series as Kaitriana assumes the role that was destined as hers since the beginning.


My Thoughts:


Ever thought that Witch and Vampires can get along? Well, they kind of always want to kill each other, you can definitely see that in Melissa Darnell’s Clann Series. And well you can see it here too. So if you are a fan of Vampires, Witches and that kind of staff grab your copy now and get lost in a new world set by Heather Fleener.

Join Kaitriana and Lorcan in their journey of self-discovery, battles with Dark and betrayal from the most unexpected people. Kaitriana is a Witch and she is Chosen. We see her first as a child and afterwards as a grown woman. I really liked her, but only her stubbornness. She is really very stubborn and feisty. And if she doesn’t like something she says it. The thing is I really didn’t know what feelings I have her. Sometimes I wanted to throttle her and sometimes to hug and all because of the same thing. But after betrayal from her own she is transformed into a hybrid. She is both full Vampire and Witch. And now it is her time and place to make Lorcan see his true self and help him lead the Light to the victory. Will she be able to do it? To fulfill her destiny and to be with the one she loves? Grab all three books now to find out.

I will truly be honest and say that the book lost one leave just because of the beginning. I was really confused thought the book in the beginning. I couldn’t tell who was who. And what the hell was going on. Maybe it was just me. And I even wanted to put it down. But knowing that I was participating in tour kept me reading further. Somewhere in the middle I got really interested and that was the changing moment. The other thing is that, while I do have an amazing imagination and can always picture what the author is telling me, I couldn’t imagine the Realm. The description was a little bit poor. But when I finished the book I knew I wanted to read other two.
