Review by: Ted on June 16, 2011 :
This is a wonderful book, I give it my strongest recommendation. It draws you in from the first moment - the fascinating plot moves rapidly, and the characters have engaging personalities. Essie (the female protagonist) positively drips with charm- she is bright, funny, but oh so realistic with her little personality foibles. Carl reminds me of some of my friends from high school- intelligent, driven, but with a wee bit too much testosterone coursing through his veins. I do not want to give away any of the wonderful surprises from the story, but it moves quickly, sucking you in from start to finish.
I was lucky enough to stumble across the first release of Balancing Light- it was originally published on Authonomy. I read the first couple pages and was immediately hooked... I completed two readings before the disappointing day it was pulled from the site. It's great to see it up here on Amazon. I am REALLY looking forward to the release of the second book- I am sure it will be incredible.
You will not regret buying this book.
