I received Promising Light through the Librarything Member Giveaway Program, in exchange for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The characters were well formed, interesting, and likable. The storyline kept me intrigued. The writing style was decent, although my copy had many errors. (such as, "Dar grabbed his face in her hands and then kissed her." Just took me out of the story for a second while my mind had to reverse the pronouns) The love story between Dar and Grace is sweet. I found myself rooting for them all the way through. There was plenty of adventure and magic. For me magic is always a plus. I thought that all the characters had personality, and had me hoping that things worked out for all of them. I can not wait to read book two in this series. I need to know where Grace, Dar, Sierra, Evan and even William go from here.
