    A Very Interesting Book....

    The story of Lightbringer was incredibly creative. Wendy is a lightbringer; she sends lingering spirits to rest. When her mother's spirit goes missing, Wendy makes it her mission to find it and return her to safety. At the same time, Piotr is having problems of his own. Piotr is a rider; a teenage ghost that oversees the safety of several ghost children. One by one, the ghost children are being kidnapped and Piotr and his friend have no idea why. Wendy and Piotr meet and they decide to help each other out with their mysteries. I am over simplifying this, but you get the gist of it.

    Wendy is an interesting character, but she wasn't terribly memorable. I just did not feel that connection that you want to feel with characters. I felt the same about the overall book. Like I said, I found it undeniably creative, but I would not classify it as a page-turner. When I put the book down, my fingers didn't itch to pick it up again. I didn't have to force myself to read slower, so that I didn't miss anything. I was interested in the book, I just wasn't captivated by it.

    I also wasn't too fond of Eddie (Wendy's best friend). But for the life of me, I cannot exactly tell you why. To me, he was presented as Wendy's alternative to Piotr, more than her partner in crime. He is meant to be her best friend, who wants more out of the relationship. But I struggled to really figure him out. At times he flirts with Wendy, but then follows it up with a joke. So, like Wendy, I was confused about where he stood.

    I would love to see more of Wendy's family in next book. I am interested in seeing how Wendy's siblings play into the upcoming story arcs. I doubt Jon has any paranormal abilities (it seems to be a girl thing), but I wonder if Chel's powers will ever awaken. That would present an interesting story arc.

    I enjoyed Lightbringer by K.D. McEntire, I just didn't love it. It was a rather creative story, but I found it to be a bit slow at times. I was impressed with how unpredictable the story was. I left like there were twists and turns around every corner. That coupled with the creative storyline, McEntire was able to create a rather impressive book.The characters and storyline were interesting; I just wasn't pulled into the book. Still, it was entertaining and I will be keeping an eye out for the upcoming books.
