Jennifer Armintrout offers us something completely different from her Blood Ties vampires

Queene of Light kicks off Armintrout's Lightworld/Darkworld series with an interesting UF world inhabited by light and dark fae, and angels, whole civilizations which were forced under ground when humans and Fae collided in the past. Although the world is interesting and the story does have its moments, Queene of Light feels very thin and the romance - between the leading lady half human/fae assassin, Ayla, and the death angel, Malachi, who falls when he is tainted by her mortal blood - uses a plot device for a quick connection between the pair so it is less than satisfying as well.

However, it may well be that the series will gain more substance as it moves past its birthing pains and explores political struggles and a battle to unite the Fae and return them to the light when the saga continues with the already released of Child of Darkness and the follow-on Veil of Shadows coming in November.
