Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Light of the World [Light 01] by Tara Brown!

Publication date: 1st November 2012
Paperback edition: 300 pages
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: In dreams whispers taunt her, chant wicked things to frighten her.

Every morning she wakes, with the same sentence ringing in her ears.

'You're dead. You're dead and I just forgot to tell you.'

The problem isn't entirely the sentence.

It's the person she sees in her dreams chanting it.

It's her mother.
I have to be honest and say that I found this book slightly confusing to start off with! It wasn't that it was confusing but when the paranormal element started to come into it I found myself having to pay close attention to every little detail to actually be able to follow the plot and understand the paranormal element but apart from that this book had a lot of potential! Sometimes it also felt that the book switched scenes so suddenly that I actually had to go back and re-read the page before! I have to say though that I didn't lose my place in the book when I put it down! The plot was original with new paranormal aspects such as Van Helsing's being introduced and I really enjoyed it! I loved the characters as well! Rayne was such a strong character and she was really pushed to her limits in this book to basically survive! Mona and Michelle were so supportive of Rayne and they helped her so much throughout this book even though Michelle did betray Rayne at one point! There was a love triangle in this book between Rayne, Constantine and Wyatt! Constantine and Wyatt were so different to each other but they both wanted Rayne to be safe and protected! I thought that Wyatt was going to betray Rayne because of who his family are but I was genuinely surprised with what side he did pick! I wasn't really sure what to think about Constantine to be honest but I liked him but I have to say that I am Team Wyatt! The ending was such a cliff-hanger! I am really looking forward to reading the next book in this series because of it! I also love the cover and I think that it represents the book well! Big thank you to Katy and Tara for having me on the Blog Tour!
The Light of the World (Light, #1)

Author bio:

I am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird.

I am a Canadian author of Paranormal Romance, Post Apocalyptic and Fantasy novels. I write a lot of books and jump Genres a lot. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing.

I write New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy! I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order. I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis. I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time. If you're wondering about the hat, it's my 'Hey I'm Canadian Toque' Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride. 
I am a huge fan of the Zombie Apocalypse and Eric Northman. Sweet Baby Jesus, that man is fine. I have recently branched out and have just published my first Fantasy novel. It is filled with Dragons, Magic, Princesses, The Volkodlak, oh and maybe a little bodice ripping and some cage fighting. But let's be honest who doesn't like a princess who can take care of herself. The novel is called Vengeance and the double sword wielding Princess Amillia guarantees plenty of it. Don't miss any of my amazing series!! Including the one being revealed in the spring, The Blackwater Witches. Bayou witches, creatures of the night and a creepy old haunted mansion.
