Mourning Sun

Rated 4.38/5 based on 8 reviews
I should have known when he walked into my life that things would never be the same. Hadn't I dreamed of him and the things he'd done before I was born? If only he weren't so fascinating, so beautiful, so much more than any other guy. Maybe then I could walk away. More

Review by: Victoria Thomas on Nov. 25, 2012 :
This book was soooo good!! At first I was like "Oh no, this sounds like another version of Twilight" (which I hate) but I was actually interested in it. I'm usually not into vampire stories but I literally could not put the book down once I started reading it. I finished it in a day and a half and now I'm ready to read the second book of the series. Shari Richardson did I really great job! I also think it's cool that Mairin has the powers that she has and how strong her love and loyalty was to Mathias. The story was very good and I would definitely recommend it!

It was like watching the rerun of Twilight when I started to read the first book of the Highland Home Series and I wanted to stop. But then my conscious kicked in and I said let me see what the author has done differently to the already well known story.
Trapped in a life of dreams, premonitions and reading Auras the young Mairin met a young man with a golden aura, beautiful and caring with a gentleman charm, Mathias. A character any woman could easily fall in love with. But he had a secret.
Through her dreams she learned to know his sufferings, his anguish and pain and had to make a choice. I love the way the author described his feelings of love to the young seventeen year old. She became his sun. His reason to live.
Many people around her wanted to protect her from harm, from what they did not understand. All the characters had good intentions. Mixed with the psychic, a witch, werepanthers, a demigod and an angel.
Making this story an interesting read.

Review by: Susan Peck on Sep. 19, 2012 :
"Mourning Sun" is a fast read with well developed characters. A well written plot with lots of emotion, passion and heartache. A metaphysical story that will capture you from the first page. I can't wait to read the rest of the story. I must read for all metaphysical/paranormal(ish)/thriller readers.

This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

This is a great paranormal book. It is an easy read because it keeps your interest. I really enjoyed the characters in the book and liked the story of Marrin and Mathias. I also enjoyed learing about the other characters in the book and their story as well. I think this book is great for YA or adults and they would equally enjoy this book. I am glad this book is a series because I am looking forward to seeing how this story and the characters play out. I also like that this book had other paranormal people in it other than just vampires. I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.

Review by: Cassie on May 31, 2011 :
I received an electronic copy of Mourning Sun for review. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! Although quite short, the story was fantastic. It didn’t take long for me to be completely absorbed in Mairin’s life. It isn’t an entirely original concept, but the way Richardson writes it, with the little twists and turns, makes it fresh and exciting. I love the way she so cleverly worked certain real-life issues into the story, such as homosexuality and bullying. Even the decision Mairin must make regarding Mathias could be applied metaphorically to so many other situations in real life.
There were a few instances where I caught a little error here and there, or where I felt a little bit of editing could have cleaned something up a tiny bit. Overall, however, it was a very well written work. The plot was solid and everything flowed perfectly. The characters all had good chemistry even if the situations were rather awkward.
I appreciate the conciseness of the book, but I can see where the author could have really expanded and probably made it at least twice as long. I cannot really complain, however. It truly was a nice fluffy little read for me to devour on this dark, rainy day. I almost cried when it ended; I wanted to know so much more! I am enthusiastically looking forward to the next installment.
I definitely recommend Mourning Sun, and I want to thank Shari for being so generous and giving me the opportunity to review her book!

Mourning Sun is a quick easy read that draws you in with an interesting mix of characters. Though it started off a little slow the book really comes to life when Mairin, a girl who is a magnet for all things metaphysical, starts to learn the secrets of those around her. At the center of it all is Mathias, a vampire with a soul, and the love of her life. Unforuntely no one else can see how good he really is-including the angel that her mother is dating-and Mairin lets their judgements and the terrifying dreams that she has about him tear them apart.
Then a werepanther and a demigod burst onto the scene and things get intersting! Xavier, the werepanther, feels a deep sense of responsiblity to keeping the town safe and he thinks Mathias is a threat. Along with a not so nice demigod they go after Mathias.
The end of the book comes quickly-too quickly!-and the reader is left wondering what is going to happen next. When there is a town filled with so much paranormal you know that things are going to get interesting!
I will definitely be checking out Captured Sun, the second book of the Highland Home series, to see what's next for Mairin and Mathias!
