“The Never is a place of greys, a world a breath beyond our own, layered just past the memories of yesterday and the fleeting present moment. It is here, in this dismal limbo, that ghosts such as Piotr, Lily, and Elle must sort out an existence, both protecting the children called Lost and themselves from the walking darkness that is the army of rotting Walkers.
Caught between her duty to her calling as the Lightbringer and her concern for her new ghostly friends, Wendy must walk the line between the two worlds, aiding Piotr in his fight against the Walkers as well as searching out the wandering soul of the one who means the most to her. Time, however, is running out and in the end… who will she choose? “
Ms. McEntire brings a world of the beyond front and center to her readers. I adored that right from the beginning we see the start of a new light bringer. One that can help souls cross over. I enjoyed this main character Wendy come into her place. I like how she fought her destiny and I really like how her destiny entangled her.
One gripe about the main character I had, is that I felt she is a little to whinny for my liking. I felt like in some parts she just needed to suck it up! Though, I did snickered at her attitude. Her sarcastic comments made me laugh. There wasn’t quite a love interest but I did adore the flirting. It gave a peaceful calming to the book with all the stress of being a lightbringer brings.
Overall, Lightbringer is a good book of mythology and other unworldly things. The way Ms. McEntire co-exist both worlds makes this reading experience brand new. The world of Never is just at the readers touch away.
I give it 3 BITES!
