Blog Tour: Renegade Red (The Light #2) by Lauren Bird Horowitz

Book Blurb:

There are three variant covers of Renegade Red. Covers will be distributed randomly upon purchase.


Reckless, desperate, and distraught, Noa Sullivan leaps into a collapsing Portal in the explosive finale of Shattered Blue— the jaw-dropping, award-winning first installment in The Light Trilogy— in wild hope of rescuing her little sister Sasha. Now Noa and the Fae brothers who love her—Callum and Judah Forsythe—must find a way to survive not only across worlds but between them, in places so treacherous and deceptive their own minds are twisted against them. As the three fight to survive their passage, they battle not only enemies but themselves, and their darkest, most difficult secrets.

Surviving, however, is only the beginning: Noa needs to find Sasha. That means becoming a warrior herself, one just as fierce as the magical brothers battling for her love. Across broken cities, underground labyrinths, rushing floods and endless skies; in the face of legions of armies, horrifying tyrants, and the most deceitful of friends, can Mortal Noa rescue her sister—and understand her own heart—in time to escape the most deadly of magic realms?

My Review:

4.5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Another World, Faeries, Mystery, Romance, Royal-Court, Supernatural--

Noa will do anything to save her little sister Sasha, even if it means jumping into the dangerous unknown. With Judah and Callum by her side, Noa has many hard choices to make as well as nearly impossible odds to face. Who will be left standing when it is all over?

Oh my Gawd, this book! I had high expectations going into the story because book one is one of my absolute favorites, I will admit that I was kinda sorta worried that I was going to be let down. But, I can report, that I was not. This book was so different than the first book, which was a nice switch. Everything here was twisty, complicated, emotional, poetic, heart-wrenching, dangerous and engaging. I was completely thrown off by how the book started and I had to piece together the story, one little bit at a time, which was challenging and exciting. This review will be a little shorter than normal because I am afraid I might be spoilery and that would ruin the anticipation.

The boys! I want to say that one is evil (bless the Otec!) and the other is good (sigh, the moody Judah), but really they both have good and bad traits and everything is so mixed up. Let's not even mention the alter ego that is Miles, because even I can't keep track of that. I have made my love for Judah know, and I really feel for him, but now I wonder if having such volatile emotions can be more dangerous than anything else...

The freaking end of the book. The ending to the first book was shocking, but the ending to this book felt a little like my heart was ripped out. There were so many terrible and bittersweet bombshells dropped on me that I honestly have no idea what will happen next. I desperately need the third book to see if the pieces of my broken heart can be mended in a way that I can be happy with.

I received this title in return for my honest review.


Shattered Blue (The Light #1)

For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, sixteen-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different. Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.

But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch—or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?
