The year is 1512. Shapeshifter Xander Wulf believes that to kill a Lightbearer is to inherit her magic. If only he can find one.
And then he does, but he doesn’t kill Sabine Flemming, because for the first time he suspects killing her isn’t how he can gain her magic. He just needs to eliminate James Bennett, King of the Lightbearers—who wants to mate with Sabine—so he can prove his new theory.
Shifters and Lightbearers don’t have to be enemies… Do they?
Everything changes for the Lightbearers and their mortal enemy, the shapeshifters, in 1512, five hundred years before book one, Into the Light, takes place. Find out what happens to propel into action a sequence of events that have set the stage for the rest of the series.

This delightful tale is sure to please the PNR fan! Set in a magical realm with conflicting paranormals, this tales explores one lightbearers free will choice rather than the path set for generations. Very entertaining tale with just the right amount of action and romance. There is even the proper splash of things yet to come. This short story is worth your quick read!
This short (and I believe, perma-free) novella introduces us to the world of Lightbearers, a supernatural race of beings who are being hunted by shifters. I picked this up because I'm acquainted with the author via social media. And I couldn't put it down. It was fast-paced, intriguing, the world-building was excellent, the scenes between both Sabine and James, and Sabine and Xander, super hot. So, even though I have a TBR list a mile long, I could not wait to pick up and begin reading the rest of the series. Which I am loving.
"First Light: Prequel to Lightbearer Series" is a fantastic beginning to a new Paranormal Series. Tami Lund did a magnificent job on this prequel. This is my first book by Tami Lund and I am impressed with her writing style. She has written an astounding story-line and an awesome plot. Tami created a great cast of characters. I love the personalities especially the ones that run contrary to the time period. I will definitely be following this new series. Sabine and Maria were out gathering berries. They stopped when they came across the warrior lightbearers practicing half naked and glistening in the sunlight. All lightbearers contained magic; warriors could call forth swords, while others magic manifested in other ways. Sabine was a gatherer and not a good one. Maria could clean and straighten clothes while still being worn. Their magic abilities had become unequal as many of them have died. The King suddenly came to the practice area and removed his shirt to join in. When his shirt came off Sabine sucked in a mouthful of dirt and began coughing and was unable to breath. Suddenly a pair of large hands grabbed her shoulders and lifted her off the ground. The King cupped her cheeks and shared his magic and cleared Sabine's lungs from dirt and she could breath just fine. She squeaked out thank you. You're a healer Sabine said. The King said yes. Sabine picked up her basket of avocados and took a step back, she tripped. The King hurried to help her pick up the fruit but Sabine said no need and when she tried to get up she swatted his nose then started apologizing and was so embarrassed as everyone was laughing that she turned and ran away. Maria looked back and told Sabine that the King look amused. Both Ladies were headed off to a new spot to pick berries. They hadn't realized how far away from home they had gone. Maria ask on the walk. why do you think they want our magic anyway. They can shift to animals. Sabine told her that they could only shift into an animal and then back to human. Where as we can do many different things with our magic. And then we can also create light. Suddenly there were two shifters standing behind them, one said, Lambs to our wolves. Shifter killed lightbearers to get their magic but they can't get it that way. Xander see how they glow? Xander did not respond. As Sabine wished she could call for a sword her fingers began to tingle. One man gave them a wolfish smile and Maria screamed and took off running. Sabine did not run, she kept her eyes on Xander. Suddenly the other shifter took off running after Maria. It wasn't long before she heard Maria scream and then there was nothing. Xander looked at Sabine and said, you didn't run. She answered, if I ran I would die and I don't want to die. I am not a lamb. Again light flared from her fingers and hand and she dropped her berries. Carlos found your friend. She would not let this murderer see her cry or as weak. Do you think he will come back with Lightbearer magic, Xander asked. No said Sabine. When you kill us, you only kill us. Sabine continued to call for a sword and magic lit up bright and a sword appeared. Xander looked startled at the sword and took a couple of steps back. I've never seen a female call a sword. Sabine said that she hadn't either. Then you have never used one. Perhaps not said Sabine but I'm adjusting quickly. Xander could see that. Sabine caught sight of Xander's eye shift and instantly spun on
I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR AN HONEST REVIEW AND THIS IS MY HONEST OPINION ONE GREAT NEW SERIES AND A SAMPLE OF THE NEXT BOOK. Lightbearers all have magic but it shows different in each one and not always equally either. The warriors for one, each generation the ones who can summon a sword gets fewer and fewer, and women can't be warriors...till one young lower class girl does, in her own defense when she and her friend are attack by two wolf shifters. Shapeshifters have become an enemy because they think that they can capture their magic if they kill them which it can't be done that way. The young King calls for her, he wants to see her do it again if she can. . She has seen the King twice and felt like she had made a fool of herself each time. On the night the king claimed Sabine his queen, the one she had shared her magic with to save the king came to her and took her outside to meet the Queen Tatiana, Queen of the Fae. She has returned after 500 years to offer the Lightbearers a new home where they will be safe forever, if they except. King James joined his new queen as they made their choice, trust the Fae Queen one more time or face a certain death from the great band of shifters almost on them. And the story gives you an update of 16 months later. Then it gives you INTO THE LIGHT the next book of the series sample. another good book.
