I am a paranormal junkie. So I was pretty excited to read this title. While I liked it, i did not fall in love. It was a cool read, with an interesting twist on the battle between angels/Shomeri and demons. I think I needed more world building. I did not fully understand the world, and the thrill of reading paranormals for me is that I get this edgy, beautiful and scary world to immerse myself into. I want to be intrigued and fear for the characters in equal parts. I did not get that with this book. It was still sweet to watch our leading lady and man overcome the odds for a happy ever after. Halena was a strong kick ass heroine and I liked her. She had a softer side that we saw came out to play, and it was pretty believable. Slade was a bit harder for me to love. He felt young..but then I suppose he should be because he was after all twenty one. He was sweet when needed, strong and honorable. Overall a likable read. I will read the others in the series.

Another great read. It a paranormal fiction packed with action and thrill. I loved everything about this book, plot is great and well executed. all the characters are also well developed and overall the book is a five star read. Slade is a college student about to graduate but then his sister once again finds herself in trouble. He must protect her and to do that he is willing to cross all limits, even if he had to sell his soul to a demon. After making sure that his sister is safe he went away to complete his task, which is to capture a beautiful woman. Halena has been protecting earth from demons for eight hundred years. She is one of the best Gatekeepers. But she is tricked by Slade and captured by a demon. Now all she wants to do is kill them all. But things enfolds in a different way. Slade and Halena are destined for each other and they must overcome their adversaries to be together forever. And here forever means forever, literally .... ;) It is a must read for paranormal lovers. I think it has been quite a while since I read a paranormal this good. Absolutely loved it and recommend to all.

A wonderful addition to the series, Claimed by Light was a lovely New Adult paranormal read. With romance, danger, and a few twists, this book was great and I really liked it. Halena was a tough heroine. She could take down several demons and not even break a sweat. Though, to be honest, she came off as cold at first. She was determined to keep people at a distance and that tended to make her seem mean. But, as the book went on, she opened up and I started to like her more and more. She was very loyal to the people she cared about and kinder than she let on. I thought she was a lovely character. Slade was simply adorable. He was very loyal and protective of the people he cared about, particularly his sister and, later, Halena. He was very sweet, determined to do the right thing, even when the right thing wasn't so clear, and just all around wonderful. I absolutely adored him. The romance was sweet. Halena and Slade were so sweet together, just totally devoted to each other (after Halena got over her stubbornness, of course). And, they had some chemistry, though the heat level stayed mild. I thought they were a perfect couple.. The plot was fast paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. There was plenty of danger to keep thing going, as well as a few secrets, particularly about Slade. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely. Claimed by Light was a lovely New Adult paranormal romance that I really enjoyed. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out. And, fans of the series, this book doesn't disappoint.  *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

**I was given a complimentary e-copy by the author/publisher via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review** you can also find this review on my Blog. This is book 3 in the Forged By Fate Trilogy, and after meeting Helena in the first two books, I was eager to see what Ms Monroe had in store for her, She is the snarky French Gate Keeper who is hell bent on staying unattached, she keeps her heart guarded after loosing her Companion (her sister for want of another description) 4 centuries ago. Helena is out on patrol in France when a College senior Slade Bennet walks up to her and chats her up... Helena is just looking for a night of fun, but there is something about Slade that keeps niggling at her heart, so she lets her walls down a little, only to have the frat boy betray her! Slade feels really bad about betraying Helena, and nearly changes his mind, but when the Demon boss comes to collect, Slade must hand Helena over to save his sisters soul. Captured and tortured, the last thing she wants to do is forgive Slade for betraying her, but the Great One has other plans... Slade is her 'Mate' and even though Halena would rather kill Slade than give him her heart. She has to work with Slade to find his sister and also the remaining Artifacts that the Gatekeepers need to bind Lucifer to Hades.  As they face the darkest of evil, Slade’s ability to crush Halena’s carefully erected walls might prove to be the most lethal battle of all. They are joined by the other Gate Keepers Theo and his Mate Sadie, and his Companion, Justin and his Mate Yvonne, along with some new characters who rally to the call. Ms Monroe takes us off to the Jungle, to battle Monsters and Demons, to swim in the tropical sea and watch Helena learn to love again, this book is a great addition to the series, I liked Helena before in the other books, she tries to come off as a person who is 'hard as nails', and she is when it comes down to fighting, but underneath it she has a huge heart, and when she cares for someone, nothing in Hell can keep her from trying to save them. Slade is used to protecting his sister, he is honorable and was willing to give up his soul to save his little sis, I loved that about him, and I also loved the way he teased Helena about the age gap! I really liked the humor in the way that Helena and Slade interacted together. with this book we finally come to the end of the Mission that Theo and Justin and Helena have been trying to complete since book 1, and there is plenty of action, romance and also a few loose ends tidied up from the previous books.  I spent most of Sunday sat engrossed in the book, if you enjoy Paranormal Romance then you will enjoy this series, and fans of the books will not be disappointed  Well done Ms Monroe for delivering a great story but leaving a few loose threads for maybe another book in the future, I for one would love another Gate Keeper Story.
