First Light , Lightbearer Series,The Prequel. By Tami Lund. Release + ARC Review.

The year is 1512. The Lightbearers have escaped to Mesoamerica in an attempt to hide from the shapeshifters who want to kill them for their magic. 

In 1512, female Lightbearers didn't conjure swords, or protect themselves from dangerous shifters. At least, not until Sabine Flemming did just that, because damn it, she didn't want to die.

In 1512, the newest Lightbearer king, James Bennett, was tired of running away every time the shifters attacked. He wanted to fight, but he didn't have enough warriors to protect his people.

In 1512, a shifter named Xander Wulf found a Lightbearer, but he didn't kill her, baffling even himself. But for the first time, he suspected killing wasn't the way to inherit their magic. 

Everything changed for the Lightbearers and their mortal enemy, the shapeshifters, in 1512, five hundred years before book one, Into the Light, takes place. Find out what happened to propel into action a sequence of events that have set the stage for the rest of the series. 

Other books in the series, in reading order:

Change in the Light

We have a very different type of supernatural being in this series. The lightbearers are magical beings who were banished from the Fae realm , and now live in the human realm.  They are constantly having to move because their enemies, the shifters, hunt them to try and steal their magic.
Sabine is a food gatherer like her mother, but is no good at it.  She and her best friend are supposed to be collecting berries, but have found something much more interesting to do.
James is the King of the lightbearers.  He has only held the title for a year and is very worried about protecting his people.
Xander is a shifter and determined to get some lightbearer magic.. He has been told that if you kill one you can inherit their powers.
This is a great start to what I know will be a marvellous series. It has everything, danger, suspense and sex. The characters are strong, brave and sexy. Sabine is a real kick ass heroine.
I can't wait to see how things shape up for all the characters.

Tami Lund likes to live, love, and laugh, and does her best to ensure the characters in her books do the same. After they've overcome a few seemingly insurmountable obstacles first, of course.

She loves to interact via social media, and is on most major platforms as "Tami Lund Author." Find her, like her, follow her!

Tami is multi-published, both self and with a few publishers, including Crimson Romance, Liquid Silver Books, and Soul Mates Publishing. Chances are, there is a new book coming out soon. Be sure to stalk her on social media, so you know when.

And most important, if you enjoyed one of Tami's books, please let other readers know by leaving a review on the site from which you bought it, or on Goodreads. Otherwise, how will they know which book to read next?
