I always knew I was different.
From a young age, my mind has been plagued with things only I could see. Some hauntingly beautiful, others completely terrifying. Never knowing if these visions were real or just hallucinations, I learned how to lock them down and ignore them. I learned to take solace in the relative anonymity of city life and find peace in the rainy days my city of Seattle is known for.
But just when I think my life is getting on track and my dreams are achievable, a moment of weakness causes me to learn a hard and fast lesson.
My entire existence has been a lie.
Now I’m faced with a new reality that’s as implausible as it is fantastical. Filled with realms and veils, light and dark, fae and daemons, gods and angels—things I don’t understand but am forced to acknowledge. It doesn’t help that the man teaching me about my unique gifts is the gorgeously handsome Carrick Byrne, one of Seattle’s richest and most powerful men. He intimidates, annoys, and intrigues me all at the same time. I don’t trust him and yet there’s no one else to help me.
No longer certain who to put my faith in, what to believe, or how I fit into it all, one revelation is clear…
The world as I know it will never be the same again.
The Revelation of Light and Dark is book one of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.
The Revelation of Light and Dark Review
Hook, line and sinker! Count me in 100% for this adult urban fantasy series by the one and only, Sawyer Bennett. Not going to lie, I always get a little bit nervous when I read from an author that writes out of a genre I’m not used to seeing them write. But once I found out that Sawyer Bennett wrote from this genre before, I was pretty confident that I’d love this one.
And it didn’t disappoint. Knowing from the beginning that this would be a long series, I knew there probably wouldn’t be a whole lot of romance, which is something I crave. But she sure drops little things here and there that’ll keep you from putting your book down! I was just eager to learn more, not only about this moody, alpha hero that leaves soooo much unsaid. But the feisty heroine that can handle her own and isn’t afraid to take things head on.
I’ve made it a huge goal to read more fantasy and I’m glad that I’ll have this series to look forward to over the new few months. We get a little bit of world building, trying to figure out what Finley’s powers truly are and see her character develop from beginning to end. Carrick, there’s still a bit of mystery behind him, but he’s holding so much back. I loved that we got a few chapters from his POV because it was just the right amount of intrigue I needed. I have to know more!
The Revelation of Light and Dark is such a great start, there’s a little bit of a cliffhanger, but you won’t have to wait too long until the next book releases. I’m beyond ready, gimme more!
