The Light of Asteria (Kailmeyra Series, #1) by Elizabeth Isaacs

If Nora Johnson hadn't been on campus that day she would have never known her true destiny. Helping her friends move into the dorm that she wanted to call home, Nora accidentally collides with mysterious stranger, Gavin Frey. His very first touch sends flames through her heart. The world seems different-something within her has changed.

She tries to resume her mundane life, but she is now consumed with the one whose very presence ignited her soul, the one with eyes of emerald. Nora soon learns that an energy buried deep within has been unleashed. She now wields unimaginable power and has become Gavin's source, his strength.

Her newfound joy is shaken when she discovers that Gavin is not who he appears to be and she has been thrust in the middle of a war of mythical proportions. Negativity allows all things evil to flourish, the earth is under siege. The fate of creation hinges on the power within her heart. Will she be strong enough to survive?

A gripping tale of unbounded love and ancient power, The Light of Asteria will take you on an epic adventure filled with war, treachery, and demons, as well as unimaginable delights.

I literally finished this in a day because I was so engrossed with how beautiful the storyline was and the spontaneous plot twists. I can't believe the book is free as well because this could be a NY Times Best Seller. Can't wait to continue the series!! The author has such natural talent, Im definitely obsessed. Must read for sure!

My Summary: Nora Johnson's life changes the day she literally runs into a gorgeous guy with emerald green eyes on campus. She's been helping her friends move onto campus but she has to go back home to the community college. Not that she couldn't get into a big school, it's just...well... complicated. Disappointed to leave her friends, she hurries off campus only to run into Gavin. The wave of emotions and change that heats through her is tangible. She hurries off expecting to never see him again. But she has been changed in more ways than being attracted to a guy she doesn't think she can have. Those changes refuse to be ignored. So she finds excuses to go on campus again and there he is. What's more, he seems like he at least want to be friends. Nora falls fast and hard for Gavin but he has secrets he isn't telling her. One of the biggest secrets is that she is different than anyone he has ever met. He wants nothing more than to be around her. Should she be trusting him? Who is he really? Nora must decide as she struggles to figure out who she is and how she fits into Gavin's mystical world. My Thoughts: 4 stars - a great read I think I'm an urban fantasy girl. I don't really like epic fantasy where the other worlds are so strange and different that I spend too much time trying to keep up with the world building that I don't enjoy the story. I think The Light of Asteria is a great comprise to these two worlds. Starting in a nice comfortable world that I know well, this story introduces the central players and some of the "magic" while I'm still very happy surrounded by things I easily understand. Then just when I'm wondering more about what's on the other side of the portal, the story goes there. But because I already know so much about my characters and their lure, I'm still happy learning about their new world. Nice world building. The plot for this story started fast, with Nora meeting Gavin with in just a few pages. The mystery was in place quickly and I was hooked. I wanted to know what Gavin was and what happened to Nora when he touched her. The scenes sped by giving me important information but not dragging through nonessential. Bottom line, enjoyed the plot. The best part of this book was the characters. Nora has had more than her fair share of struggles in her life. She can't go to a big college with her friends because she needs to help her foster mom take care of the farm. While it makes her sad, she is a strong determined girl making good choices. I liked her right away. I will say that before the end of the book, I was beginning to think Nora was a little too perfect - don't growl at me Gavin. ;) But she is a nice strong female lead. By far, my favorite character is Gavin. Holding back his secrets, Gavin is a warrior that fights demons and wants to protect Nora. But guess what, Nora saves him more times than he saves her. Nice change there. What I really liked about Gavin is that he grew over the course of the book. Nora seemed to already be...well... perfect but Gavin has some growing to do. And he did. I loved that he listened to Nora and while he didn't always like what she told him, he almost always responded positively. Before the end, he was a better person. Love that in a character. LOVE the relationship between Gavin and Nora, so steamy while still very appropriate for teens. As for the ending, can I just say that I really HOPE that book two

Although at first the prose may remind the reader a bit of the twilight monstrosities at first, this book is so creative and absorbing that all similarities end there. An incredibly engaging read, from which all ages can appreciate the overreaching mesages and enjoy falling into the world of the story!

I just finished The Light of Asteria. I could not put it down! The best word I can find to describe the experience is: Wow... The beauty of Elizabeth's story is unlike anything I have ever read. She has an incredible knack for putting the reader *in* Nora's shoes. You see what she sees--but more powerful, you feel what Nora is feeling. Her love, devotion, and heartache become a part of who you are. I can truly say I have never experienced a story like The Light of Asteria before. The plot is original and the characters realistic. This is one of my all time favorite stories! Eagerly awaiting Book 2 of the series!

Everything about this book in the beginning seems as normal as can be, but that soon changes as the hands of fate wraps its fingers around Nora and Gavin, and their life takes off. They are both faced with so many trials and test between themselves and among each other. Together they manage to stay pure of heart and shine with the greatest intent. The emotional range of this book was pure craziness. I have never felt so many emotions in one book. I have officially become Elizabeth Isaacs BIGGEST fan and I can not wait for book 2, or just another book by her period. Ten out of five stars! ;)
