A Broken Light

Beyond the Night, #1

Raised in a monster hunting family Jace Bennett can't believe that in a matter of months his whole family was gone due to their monster hunting. Pulling himself out of despair and excepting a new assignment in Minnesota Jace meets fellow monster hunter Elias James. Elias has his own reason for hunting monsters.

Elilas' story though is a lot different and his reasons as well. Elias is an incubus and hides it from Jace as best as he can until their attraction for one another forces him to reveal his nature. What Jace doesn't know is that Elias is the reason that the deadly ghostly activity is happening there.

Can Jace put aside his distrust of Elias and save the residence of the small town or will it all be for naught in the end?

A Broken Light has a really good storyline and I enjoyed it a lot. The only thing that set my teeth on edge was Jace's pity party. It would have been a lot better if he could have gotten over his self-pity early on in the book. The love scenes when there was a scene helped make for the storyline enjoyable. I will recommend this one for those who like good versus evil love stories.

Book Blurb for A Broken Light

For Jace Bennett and Elias James monsters are no myth. In their world, no one sweet talks vampires or cuddles werewolves. The night is dark, and the unnatural creatures lurking in it dangerous.

Holding back the shadow, hunters protect an oblivious population. Once filled with ideals, Jace now hunts to avenge his family. Elias, true to his incubus nature, kills to live. When fate brings the natural born enemies together, they form an unlikely alliance to save a town from blood thirsty ghosts.

Sparks fly and attraction flares, but when Jace learns Elias isn't human, prejudice threatens their fragile bond. A threat from a common enemy forces them back together and Elias' unexpectedly humane actions cast Jace's black and white convictions into shadow. Shaken and facing an impossible choice, can Jace learn to redefine monster in time to save them?
