Goodreads Summary: 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.
Seers Of Light is a book I have mixed feelings about. I mean, I liked it and there is something really interesting about it, but there’s also something about it that made it a little hard to get into.
I liked Lily and how sarcastic she is. She’s certainly a character, as are the rest of the characters we meet in Seers Of Light. Lily’s age…I have thoughts that are all over the place. Lily is 27 or 28, as mentioned pretty early in the book…but there’s something abou this book that makes me feel like that’s too old for her to be! Part of me feels like Lily should be younger, and there is a certain feel to the book that makes me feel like 27/28 is slightly too old for her to be age-wise.
But as interesting and slightly quirky as they are. there’s just something about them that I didn’t find engaging or memorable. Because I honestly couldn’t tell you anything other than the basics for the characters.
I did like the premise of the book, with Sentients fighting vampires. DeLucy created this really interesting world, and there’s a really interesting structure for the supernaturally gifted. I wish we saw more of that, because that felt pretty minimal. You just get the basics of this world. I get that Lily is very new to this world, and that the book is more about her journey, but still…you’d think she’d do more than get some basic training on how to use her gift.
As for the romance…I wasn’t surprised she ended up with William, but their romance also didn’t do anything for me. I honestly don’t their attraction to each other…
Actually, the story is a pretty simple one, and I like that it’s so simple. There are no crazy plot twists, and the story is just fine in its simplicity. At the same time, though, I wish there was something a little more complex. There were times when the book leaned towards being philosophical, which was an unexpected surprise that I’m still not sure about. I suppose it was interesting, but…I’m not quite sure what to think about it.
To Sum Up…
There are things I like about Seers Of Light, like the world that Lily lived in, and how simple the story is. But I also felt like I didn’t really get a chance to know this world very well. Ultimately, I have mixed feelings, and I’m not sure if I want to continue the series. Seers of Light gets 3 stars.
