Seers of Light
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. Jennifer DeLucy has created a unique, enchanting tale of destiny and the ageless power of love in her debut novel, Seers of Light. DeLucy's novel charms readers with quirky characters, while sketching a haunting portrait of one woman's journey on the path of the supernaturally gifted. But be prepared. Once you've entered the world of Seers, you will never be the same.
I saw many reviews for this series on GoodReads and those books seemed interesting so I was happy when I saw that AToMR was hosting this blog tour. I couldn't wait for the date to get closer just to read them.
I was surprised with this, first book in series. I just couldn't enjoy it. I mean the story was interesting and the whole point in those spirits and everything was really interesting, plus I like Ghost Whisper TV show so I could imagine this story. The thing I had problem with was mainly Lily. Sometimes I liked her but other times I wanted to scream in frustration. No she wasn't annoying but some things pissed me off. Other thing that bothered me - some parts of this story were so predictable.
Basically same old story in this book. Lily the regular girl, only she is a bit older - not a teen, one days she discovers something she though that shouldn't exist and then her would turn upside down. Soon she discovers some secrets of universe and her place in it. In the meantime she met new people who helped her to adjust the new environment.
Like I said I still liked the story but only I wasn't so thrilled like I thought I'd be. So for this book rating is somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. But more 3 than 4.

Whisper of Light
The saying goes that all men are created equal... but Nicole Abbot knows better. Lacking the supernatural gifts of the Sentients she has known all her life, Nicole has lived with her nose pressed to the glass, withering beneath the guilt of her own inadequacies and the disapproving glare of her father. It's easy to believe that the universe has forgotten all about her, but things are not always as they seem. With the arrival of Christian Wright, a handsome but complex Combatant with a troubled history, Nicole is forced to question everything she has ever believed about herself, proving that sometimes, our most flawed perceptions are those reflected in a mirror. Jennifer DeLucy again plunges us into the world of lingering spirits, dark apparitions, and malicious vampires. But this time she takes us to the California coast where we get to know a new ensemble of gifted souls that are just as vibrant and endearing as the Sentients we came to love in Seers of Light. In Whisper of Light, DeLucy delivers exciting supernatural encounters as well as very human interactions that will both break your heart and make it soar.
After that little disappointment in the first book I thought the same thing would happen with this one. But then something unexpected happened.
Being confused at the beginning (yet again I haven't read the blurb) I started to realize what this book was about. This story happened (mainly, only the end didn't) at the same time as first book only here the main plot was about another group. First thing that got me was narrator, Nick was so great storyteller. I really enjoyed reading this story form her point of view. Second thing was Christian. In the Seers of Light he wasn't my favourite character, I neither liked or hated him, but here he was such a great character.
About the story (I'm sorry for not telling you more but I don't want to post spoilers so I can't say much), after certain things happened in first book Christian decided to say away from his society for sometime and he moved to another group where he was doing same job but with different people. Being broken he wanted to stay away from some people, but he couldn't imagine that there his views and life would be changed.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Now I'm happy that I haven't gave up and continued reading this story. 5 stars for this book.
BTW - I found out that there would be third book in the series. I can't help but wonder what it will be about.
