On Tour with Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan

From Goodreads:  I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice.

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.

In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end.

Wow, this was a fun, fast paced read for sure.  I pretty much had it devoured in one 24 hour period.  By the end I was so caught up in the story I was all tense and worked up.  I suddenly realized it and laughed at myself.  I really shouldn't read late at night like that.  :)

I can't say that I was surprised at anything, I had everyone pegged from the get go but it was still a great read.  I enjoyed Llona's journey from "blend in and go unnoticed" to "I'm going to take you down".  It's amazing how loving and caring for others can empower you and make you stronger.

I wanted a bit more romance, a bit earlier, but I'll take what I can get.  There was one scene that was a bit disturbing that involved a death.  I didn't like how that was laid out for me so graphically.  

I'll be looking forward to the next book because I was sure left hanging, wanting more at the end!
