I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Scintillate is the first book in the paranormal romance trilogy, The Light Key Trilogy, by Tracy Clark. The story is about a young girl finding out who and what she is. I was intrigued by this story, though it was a bit predictable in parts, the author did a great job in keeping my attention. The book was well written, and the characters were well fleshed out. I'm curious as to what happens in the next installment, which I have just started. I would recommend this story to anyone looking for a well written paranormal romance. ( )

I had the honor of BETA reading an early version of this story. I loved it then, but I LOVE it NOW! The story is so much deeper and broader than when I first read it.

Cora is loveable and real. I thought the attraction between Cora and Finn was totally believable, especially given that their rush-to-affection is plausibly explained late in the book. And then their relationship really takes on way more depth. But none of that detracts from the scorching nature of their romance. It’s hawt.

The prose is beautiful and lush. Ms. Clark certainly has a way with words and turns of phrases, bending them to her whim and fancy. And the themes tackled in the book, metaphysics and interpersonal energy, are a personal hot button for me... and she did a wonderful job of crafting a mythology around these topics.

The artifacts and mystery of the story and what Cora uncovers engaged my mind in a way that few books do. And I love when that happens, love books that not only tell a good story, but also make me think. And even though I knew pretty much what was going to happen… I was still pleasantly surprised by many elements.

I also love books that introduce new places and cultures in a real way. I got a good sense of Santa Cruz and the Redwood forest. And the scenes in Ireland were totally immersive.

The ending is sad but satisfying in the way that fantasy/ quest stories can be. Many threads are tied off nicely. Some questions are answered, and some linger. The ending really does set the course for a huge quest... for information and understanding of self and others, if not more artifacts… to ultimately solve the much larger mystery in which Cora finds herself entangled. (pun intended)

Wow this book is awesome. I can't wait for the next one.

This book is so good that at one point I gasped out loud. Unfortunately, I was at a hair salon and a few people turned around to look at me. Awkward!! But I really didn't care that much, because I just had to continue reading to find out what happens next.

I highly recommend this book to anyone ( )
