Review: Falling Light Author Thea Harrison
Centuries ago, two lovers were torn apart by forces beyond their control. Now they have been reunited by destiny and are willing to sacrifice everything again-and again-to save a world on the brink of extinction.
The game of Shadows continues....
Troubled by dreams of strange creatures and unfamiliar voices echoing in her head, Mary had always felt disconnected from this world-until she met the enigmatic stranger Michael. He knew about marys' past. he was in it. Searching for her, His should mate. And It's taken centuries to find her, to re-engage her in an ancient, celestial cause: find the Deceiver before he destroys the world.
Haunted by scores of heaths--their own--Mary and Michael have drawn on the wisdom of the ages, and the power it has given them, to fight the most malevolent force known to man. Joining a select band of warriors, Mary and Michael are nearer to understanding the Deceiver and all he stands for. It's a terrifying reality that also brings them closer to realizing their own destiny and purpose. And realizing that love--like evil--is eternal.
Falling Light is the second in the series Game of Shadows and can be read alone but would be better after reading the first book, Rising Darkness so that you get more information on the characters and what is going on. This is a fantasy story with a little romance to it. The plot is very involved and keeps you busy with all that is going on.
I liked that this was a different kind of story than I have read before. After all aliens from a different planet that are reincarnated several times is not the usual. Mary and Michael are out to battle the Deceiver so that he can’t harm anymore. They have many struggles but work hard and sacrifice much to do what they think is best. I liked the different characters especially Astra and how she really fit into the scheme of things.
