I actually have the cover with the cloaked woman on it for this(which is way more eye-catching) but since the covers aren't combined for some reason and this one has more reviews . . . I'm putting it here. All that to say, the cover of the book really caught my attention. It's a gorgeous cover. Technically the MC has silvery, straight, moonlight hair when she has that cloak, but *shrugs* that's just a side note.You ever have a book that you really wanted to love? That had so much potential yet h [...]

This book drew me in from the first chapter. I absolutely loved it and had to just go get the second in the series! Can't wait to read more about Merri and Justan :)

Because I know someone who knows the author, I decided to read A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS. It is certainly not in the category of books I typically read, but I did enjoy it. It could be classified as Christian Fiction, but only in an allegorical sense. It would also classify as fantasy fiction, with ghostly figures, princes and kings, and mystical powers. The story chronicles the development of Merrilyn from an orphaned girl into a powerful healer who has powers she did not know she had. One of the [...]

An action packed medieval tale of what a light can do in the darkness.Merrilyn's life changes forever when she mysteriously heals the royal escort after an unexpected ambush.Merrilyn struggles to follow the voice called Loian that guides her, her devotion to Loian puts a strain on her relationship her best friend Justan, the crown prince.Can Merrilyn help lead her country into a new age?Ms. Sutherlin wonderfully balances her allegory so that it is not too much, yet not in the least lacking, a tr [...]

This is a well written fantasy with memorable characters. Merrilyn's faith in a forgotten god, Loian, and her strict adherance to her professional principles place a strain on her friendship with Prince Justan. Had she not been the Alaith, Merrilyn's romantic relationship with Justan could have developed more quickly. Instead, following her professional call and her faith, Merrilyn finds a new friend--and a love triangle.This is a fantasy set in a capably-created world where magic is a real thre [...]

I only got through a couple chapters of this book before I put it in the dnf pile. Lots of head hopping. Places where I could see the research hadn't been done. It just hit all the wrong buttons immediately.

This review, my first review, is chock-full of spoilers, so if you're interested in actually reading this book without spoilers, step a good distance away.Ugh. I really wanted to like this book. The pacing was wrong, the characters were flat, the relationships were shallow, but the premise was interesting. I mean, has anyone heard of a silver-haired heroine who heals others by praying? Probably not. Still, this book almost falls into the bottom of the barrel. The book starts off with Merrilyn, t [...]

A Light in the Darkness takes us through a unique journey as Merrilyn, close friend to Prince Justan, presues her destiny as the Alaith, chosen magical healer of Nomar. While the adventure is fun and interesting, I found myself wishing there were more happening between Marilyn and Prince Justan, since I am a romantic at heart. Still, the writing was great, the story engaging, and the overall read worthwhile. Glad to have found it!

Not entirely a bad book, and not for me. There seem to be Christian undertones in the wimpy healer who believes in/prays to a ghostly God no one else supports anymore, along with the whole good vs. evil thing. The story is very pure with little grey. Despite being the heroine of the story, Marilyn makes few decisions on her own and is always protected by an adult, the love interest, or said god; she's boring and so are the cardboard other characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed A Light in the Darkness. From the first chapter, I was drawn into this fantasy world and trying to figure out the mystery. The entire story was a fun adventure, with some mysteries revealed. I can't wait to continue the adventure in book #2 and discover more about Merrilyn's world.

Intensely intriguing storyFrom the first few paragraphs, I was totally hooked on this wonderful adventure! The characters are wonderfully realistic and the story just keeps pulling you along, from one chapter to the next. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in an adventure!

Great storyThis was a great story. I thoroughly enjoyed detail, though I did feel like the characters were a little shallow. I did get sucked into the story and couldn't put it down.

I can't finish this

Loved this book!!! I became completely engrossed with the characters and found myself smiling with and rooting for them! I look forward to the next book!

Read Lamplighter with same title. could not find
