Mactus - Latin - means well done, good job, honored, good luck.

Mactus (The Light-Bearer, #2)

Charmeine and Tabbrius awoke to Shane barging in, demanding answers. Shane was very protective of Charmeine and he didn't like the idea that Tabbrius could be taking advantage of her.

Tabbrius told him that he had been an orphan, like Charmeine and that he was also a vampire. Charmeine went on to tell Shane how they had found out that Tabbrius was a Blood-Hunter and she was a Light-Bearer. Tabbrius explain

Taking off from the ending of Charmeine, as a reader, you are whisked away into the bliss of Tabbruis and Charmeine and their deep love for one another. Such compassion and reverence for each other, you just have to wonder how they will ever function in the world. They seem to be so passionately occupied with each other. While reading, I visualize the melting and glowing that encases the room whenever they enter. They soon find out that Shane is more than just a great friend of Charmeine and tha ...more

My Review:

Mactus picks up where Charmeine left off, without missing a beat. If you enjoyed the first book, then you will LOVE this one!

The Good: I really loved the way that Emily shares Char and Tab's past with us...through dreams. It was written in such a way that I could visualize the events as they were described. All of the characters really grow in this portion of the series. They become a family - close knit and loving. Shane even has an awesome surprise and it is a great addition to the s

WHOO WEE... UNBELIEVABLE!!! I mean "Mactus" is a wild ride!

I don't want to give out any clues to what the book is about but after reading "Charmeine," I can tell you it left the door opened wide for anything, and it did!

Our heros, Charmeine and Tabbruis start out with a huge surprise which was sitting right in front of them, and it is mind-blowing. Charmeine is attacked and it takes the help of their friends to battle the bad Blood-Hunter who is out for her blood, literally! The book twists and

Wow! I was loving these two at the end of the first book but now, I am loving them even more. In this book, Charmeine and Tabbruis are given the surprise of their lives as memories of their past love come to the surface. Some memories are good, while others reveal their ordeal may be far from over. Can they complete the dark task that has been set before them and once again be what they once where to each other? I definitely recommend this book as well as the first to anyone who loves a good dee ...more

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank Emily Guido, author of Mactus, for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.

WOW! What a great read. Charmeine was intriguing and now Mactus really changed the meaning of intriguing to me it was freakishly intriguing and exciting with more dark secrets, power-packed fighting scenes, passionate true love, heart touching family bonding, dangerous en

As the family grows, dark and deadly threats become real and destinies will be fulfilled. Will Charmeine accept her new future, or will she sacrifice herself in order to save her family?

In this second chapter of The Light-Bearer Series, Guido continues the emotional story of Tabbruis and Charmeine. Two angels destined to be tog

Excitement, excitement from the beginning of book two in this wonderful series! I absolutely loved Shane’s surprise!! The excitement keeps building and building!
I loved Dmitri, loved the “family” What a lovely castle for their home. Charmeine is such a strong woman, she continues her training and the love between her and Tabburis continues to grow. The couple is learning more and more who they can trust and who they can’t. Are friends really enemies? I loved the development of the extended famil

"Mactus" means a job well done!

"Mactus" is the continuation of Charmeine and Tabbruis' love story.

The wonderful event which happens when they arrive in Romania is both beautiful and spiritual. God has a mission for them but they accept the peril that they have to combat.

Also the secondary characters are revealed in more depth.

Emily Guido does not disappoint. She is weaving the world of Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers and I laughed and cheered while the action ensued.

Excellent second novel in

Notes to Reviewers and Readers:
First, the Blood-Hunter race or Elders have been on Earth for thousands of years. Because of this, they do not use contractions like I'm, don't or can't. They communicate in a more refined way because of their age.

Second, there are several OLD editions out in circulation of my books. Please leave a review on the current edition. Please feel free to contact me, Emily, at to check the edition you have is the recent edition.

The surprises, twists and turns never fair. The characters are so very real and I feel like part of the family. Charmeine, Tabbrius, Shane, Dmitri, Sandra, and Neal are all such wonderful characters. They are all developed so well and Emily uses her skills to draw readers into this series even more, with the second book.

Keep up the wonderful work Emily!

The author of Mactus gave me the book free so I could give an honest review. As Emily gave me a signed first edition, I did not want to ruin the book, so I also downloaded the latest version to my kindle. I did enjoy the book, and I feel that Emily is a very good author. I am looking forward to reading the remainder of the series.

Mactus starts immediately where Charmeine, the first book in the Light-Bearer series, left off so there is no loss of weeks or days. Charmeine has discovered who she is

This Series is really heating up!

In Mactus you get the same magnetic romance between Charmeine and Tabbruis, along with some huge surprises.

I was either sighing over Char and Tab, or chuckling about Shane.

I also did a lot of ‘take this’ and ‘take that’ when the evil-doers showed up. Every time one fell, I’d do a fist pump!

Emily’s love for her characters is shown in their love for each other. Never have I read a book with such love and devotion in a family. I get a goofy grin on my face when they

So I read "Charmeine" the first book in this series, I fell in love with the story and the characters. Charmeine full of light, love and energy, literally, also a great sense of humor. Tabbruis, a 8,000 year old BloodHunter, turned good and fights for his kind who are like him, they only feed on animals not humans. He's dark, handsome, a vampire and loyal. Dimitri, one of Tabbruis's BloodHunter brothers, loyal, knowledgable because he's the oldest of them, also very handsome. Shane, Charmeine's ...more

This second book in the series carried on where book one Charmeine left off. The characters in the first book were developed and each had a chance to tell their own story, bringing everyone together in their fight to overthrow the corrupt Elder Council. Action packed with never a dull moment add to this an ending leaving the reader wanting to find out what happens next. Thank you Emily Guido for sending me a complimentary copy of this excellent book.
