Overview

Lillian Hunt has never truly lived. Always sensing more to the world than is easily perceived, she fears that her instincts are stubborn flights of fancy, or worse, mental instability. But some things—disappearing strangers, tangible dreams, and visits from malevolent creatures—cannot be ignored. Before it's too late, Lillian is ripped from the only existence she’s ever known and thrust into a reality that she always suspected, but could scarcely believe. She must learn the truth about who she is, the powerful beings that wish to destroy her, and the two men who would die to protect her.

I really enjoyed Seers of Light. I appreciated the fact that the story took off right away. I wasn't left trying to figure out what Lily was. Her role is clearly explained. The characters were likable. The story held my interest and I was ready to read more. Lily is living in Pennsylvania living an ordinary life, but she feels like she's missing something. When Christian arrives and saves her life, she leaves with him to find some answers. I liked that Lily wasn't a damsel in distress. She was a tough girl who was ready to take on her responsibilities. She trained hard and really worked on doing her best for the group. I also loved that there is a love story. I have to have some type of romance in my books. I thought Christian was going to be that guy for Lily, but when she meets William, she can't deny that there is something between them. William is a tortured soul. He was turned into a vampire, but his soul was able to be saved. He is a healer and a key part of the group. The only problem is that not everyone trusts him. I understood why, but he was such a sweet, likable guy. I was so glad that Lily trusted her feelings for him. It bothered me a little that she wanted to keep their feelings for each other a secret though. Again, I understood why, but it made me feel sad for William. I loved the paranormal abilities. The idea of basically turning bad energy into something positive was a concept that is pretty realistic. It was just turned into something a bit more. My husband reads a lot of books about this subject. He always tells me that he reads the true stories and I read the fiction, but believes there isn't much of a difference between the two. If you are looking for a fast paced story that's filled with action, intrigue, and romance, this is a great book for you. I was excited to read the second book and got started on it immediately after I finished. Be sure to check this one out!

'Seers of Light' is a wonderfully charming novel about a young woman who is taken from her normal life and is suddenly brought into a world that she always thought may have existed, but never had proof. Now she's trying to avoid being killed while figuring out who she really is and what she's capable of - not to mention the two guys who are willing to die in order to protect her. I thought that this story was very well written and had a great flow. I found myself intrigued from the very beginning of the story and couldn't stop reading until the last sentence. The setting that the book is set in was a perfect choice for the story - it added the right amount of fantasy and supernatural aspects to make the story feel more ominous and magical. The characters were interesting and had many facets to them, which I found made me more involved in the novel and eager to see their outcomes. This was a great first novel in the series and will have readers eagerly coming back for the next book in the series. Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Jennifer DeLucy's Seers of Light is a journey of love, hope, and courage. The story follows Lily, a pathcrosser and empath, who is saved by Christian from a vampire attack. After a brief explanation from Christian, he takes her to Georgia to Abram and the other endowed people. There she discovers who she really is and her destiny, to battle evil spirits and beings. She trains with William, the vampire with a soul. Before their first training session Lily decides to hate him for what he is not who. He expects and puts up with her attitude stating that she can hate him all she wants just as long as she learns what she needs to survive. As the training sessions continue, she starts to see the humanity in William. Christian, seeing that Lily is being less hostile with William, becomes very clingy, even though they are not dating. He starts to follow her around like a "golden retriever." When a coven of vampires located near her hometown starts to threaten Lily's new happy life, she along with her new family, must defeat them, or die trying. All the characters in Seers of Light were real. I found I had a lot in common with Lily. Although, I don't think I'm quite as stubborn as she is. After spending most of her life seeing spirits and being empathetic, Lily is more than happy to go where she is accepted and even admired for her abilities. She is very kind, but also judgmental and a bit gullible. Her love interest in the story is William Maddox. I could talk about William for the rest of my life. In fact, I've reread Seers of Light so many times that I've actually lost count, all because of William. Even after reading it X amount of times I still feel my heart beat erratically whenever he walks in the room, or speaks, or is brought up in the conversation. Jennifer DeLucy did a marvelous job writing his character. William is a vampire who got his soul back. Everything about him is human except his body. The sentients, other endowed people, around the world aren't too fond of him, nor is Christian. Christian spends most of his time voicing his hatred of William to his face. Poor William. He is so tortured but still strives to do what is right. Unlike Christian, William allows Lily to make her own mistakes and decisions. All I can say is that every time William did something or said something especially cute or witty I pretty much swooned- which was quite often. Christian bugged me. There were so many times when he interrupted William and Lily moments that got me out of my seat screaming "Shut up, Christian!" or "Go away, Christian!" But to be fair, Christian has problems of his own. By the end, I thought Christian was okay. Abram was kind of like the head of the house. If I had to pick an actor to play him it would be Morgan Freeman. He's wise and very grandfatherly. The rest of the characters are beautifully brought to life and fill the novel with an amazing story. Jennifer DeLucy explores love and courage in her novel. Love is a huge, and I mean gigantic huge, theme in Seers of Light. She forces the characters to examine their hearts and what it means to love. Love takes courage-it is a leap of faith. As a reader, I felt the love wrapped around the characters. To love someone, sometimes sacrifices must be made to keep or save that love. Seers of Light contained every form of love as well as the ups and downs of it. Seers of Light is one of those books that I can't recommend enough.

I have to admit... it started out a little slow for my taste but OMG when you got into the meat and potatoes it was AWESOME!!! I liked the unexpected twists. I fell in love with William over and over again.

Though my tastes in literature runs a little more on the horror/sci-fi/western/political thriller front, Seers of Light is written with a feverent passion for the supernatural romance drama. Lillian Hunt is a strong, intelligent woman who, after some natural doubt, embraces her destiny. Along the way, she falls for a guy who is trying to lay to rest his own set of demons while mentoring Lillian along the way. Seers of Light is a powerful story sprinkled with humor,peppered with romance that will keep the girls reading, and and splashed with enough action to keep the guys interested. Check it out

I adored this book, and plan to recommend it to everyone I know. Part romance, epic of course, part treatise to life your life fully, she creates an amazing blend of the supernatural and reality. The characters are so real, I honestly miss them now that I am finished! I love that they are engaged in a spiritual world doing very out of the ordinary things and yet they are incredibly down to earth. Reading Lily's story, I felt like, Hey I could do that! (but maybe that's just me). Ha. I am not doing this book justice, so I will conclude by saying, please read this book, it is swoony and gorgeous and smirky in all the right places.

have to give the cover to this book some love! I really like it. It looks ominous and mysterious. I couldn't wait to dive into this book. I first discovered this book on Good reads and after reading the summary I put this book on my TBR list. When I received it in the mail I was thrilled! The first few chapters gave me chills. Jennifer has created a fantastic story. I didn't want to put the book down until I finished it. The story line focuses on Lillian Hunt. She has supernatural abilities that lie untapped until she is saved by Christian, who was sent by others who share the same powers as Lillian. They want to help her understand and use her powers against their enemies, vampires. I loved Lillian's character. She is vulnerable yet spunky! There is also a love triangle between William, Christian and Lillian. One word : Hot. This story was good from beginning to end. It's full of action, adventure, and things that go bump in the night. If this book is on your TBR list you need to move it to the top. If you haven't added it yet: DO IT. This week the next book in the Light Series comes out: Whisper of Light. I for one can't wait to read it.

My head is still reeling from re-reading this book (yes I said re-reading) and so I'll write in as logical a fashion as I can! I promise not to ramble too badly.Seers of Light is truly beautiful. Honestly if I could only describe it in one word, that would be it: beautiful. Jennifer has crafted a world where everything is completely different, and yet so enticing. Seers of Light is a story that will stay with you long after you turn the last page, and you will find yourself sighing at the fact that there is no more left to read.Remember that I have said many times before that characters are my thing? If the characters are great, I am invested in the story. On that note, I find the need to applaud Jennifer for her character development of epic proportions! I loved EVERY character, down to the smallest supporting ones. The fact that I still remember Mrs. Bridget Cavanaugh who makes but a brief, albeit very memorable, visit into the story amazes me! Truly, the characters of Seers pop off the page with their unique personalities! Interjection here to say that I adore Lily. She is the perfect example of a strong female protagonist and I am in awe of her. Pair that with interactions with sweet, stubborn Christian and deliciously snarky William and you have one amazing storyline! Able to make you laugh out loud at one point, and make your toes curl in delight at another? Jennifer, you are a masterful writer.Emotion is also a very important piece of loving a book for me. Reading this story was emotionally exhausting in the best way possible. Bristling with anger and annoyance, tearing up at touching moments, feeling empathy in the highest degree, I never felt that there was a dull moment. In fact, I found myself wanting to read well past the bookmarks I had set for myself so that I wouldn't stay up too late! Reading past midnight although you know you have to be up early the next morning? That is a good story.There are so many other things I could say about how amazing this book is! However then I would be rambling and you would probably all just shake your head and walk away. I do not exaggerate my friends when I say that this is one of my absolute new favorite books. After purchasing and reading this in e-book format, I now know that I must own a bound copy. Stat. Give this a read! If you enjoy emotional roller coasters, love triangles, some of the deepest and most beautiful love imaginable...and the list goes on, you'll fall in love with this book too.

I¿ve read this book more than three times (lost count after that). After every reread, I dreamt about William. I¿m not exaggerating. I did. This is the only book that I¿ve dreamt about more than once. It will stick in your mind. It will make you reflect about your own life and how love has affected you. The smooth and easy flow of reality and the paranormal is proof of Jennifer DeLucy¿s skill at story-telling. The paranormal aspect takes up a huge part of the book, but it is so completely believable that you barely notice it. There are so many books where
