The Armor of Light


Blurb
Ember has been accepted into the mage academy, but not without cost. She has gained a new enemy, ancient and dark, whose entire purpose is to destroy all white magic and her along with it. After nearly losing her life in a brutal attack, DeMunth is assigned her guardian, and the keystone he wears, The Armor of Light, begins the transition that will make it a true power. Kayla has lost most everything of importance to her—the people, the prestige, and all she fought for the past ten years. With nothing left to lose, she continues her search for the birthplace of The Sapphire Flute and the Wolfchild she believes to be its player. Her journey will take her to strange, foreign, and often dangerous places, and everything she had thought to be true will be proven wrong. In a showdown full of betrayal and heroic loss, Ember and Kayla finally meet on the battlefield, fighting a war on two fronts—against C'Tan and her people, and the mysterious enemy bent on destroying all magic—the shadow weavers.

Title: The Armor of Light
Author: Karen E. Hoover
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Pub Date: September 2011
Ebook, Smashwords
The Armor of Light is book 2 in the Wolfchild Saga fantasy series, and is filled with a perfect mix of magic, adventure, romance, betrayal, and battles between good and evil. Karen Hoover is a master world builder whose descriptiveness opens colorful panoramas in the mind and whose authentic characters capture the heart. We even get a deeper glimpse into the mind and heart of the antagonists in this second volume of the series.

Where second books in a series so often don’t live up to the first installment, The Armor of Light is a wonderful continuation, perhaps even surpassing The Sapphire Flute, in its energy and excitement!  And the ending!
 
I highly recommend The Armor of Light as well as The Sapphire Flute.

You can check out samples chapters and find ordering information of both books on Karen E. Hoover's website.
