Ashlyn – a free-spirited teenager whose peaceful life is shattered when the village elders honor her with a perilous quest to recover a stolen relic.
Zane – a jaded mercenary, torn by his undeniable desire for Ashlyn and the dark secret that could make her hate him forever.
Delistaire – a malevolent sorcerer driven by an insatiable lust for power.
All three are bound together by an ancient relic supposedly infused with the power of a Goddess.
Shadow Fire - adventure, passion, secrets, and betrayal
As Ashlyn and Zane race to stay one step ahead of the evil lurking in the shadows, their passions are ignited and their bond strengthens. But will they find the relic before Delistaire? Or has their entire quest been orchestrated from the very beginning by a madman in pursuit of ultimate power?
Just on originality alone, this book had me. I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't this.
I LOVE that there was a love story in this tale but that it didn't CONSUME the book and hold it captive. It was a perfectly planned balance of love story, action, and suspense.
Ashlyn made me love her for her bravery and her willingness to overcome. She was loyal and incredibly mature for her age.
This book was perfect in that I felt complete at the end and felt that there were no holes left in the story, but at the same time, I could read more about all of these characters and never be bored!
Bring on some more Light Chronicles!!!

Her house is filled with dragons, though she does lament that they are the porcelain, non-flying variety.
