Review: Seers of Light by Jennifer DeLucy

Seers of Light by Jennifer DeLucy

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 wanted this book for ages. I couldn't get it in the UK and ended up getting an American friend to get it for me via a member of her family who still lives there.

Firstly I didn't realise it was an adult book. I don't really read adult or review adult books ever. I did find that the language used in it was a bit much at times (especially those words beginning with S and F). It's not that I'm a prude but I do question why such language had to be used all of the time (maybe it is the teacher in me). It is also quite adult in places - so don't go and buy this for your teenage daughter - I even blushed in places.

The ideas used in this book are original (maybe except the angel with a soul - I already have a favourite one of those). There were a lot of characters to get your head around in the book and the plot was quite involved. The story read to me like the first in what is hoped to be a whacking great series. There was a lot of detail and not a huge amount happened. There were some really creepy bits and a few characters I really liked but I couldn't get my head around all the detail.
