They were supposed to be enemies, not lovers. Tanner Lyons is a shifter without a pack, which is just the way he likes it—until he rescues Olivia Bennett, princess of the Lightbearers. Suddenly, he finds himself fighting an attraction that makes no sense, because Lightbearers and shifters have been mortal enemies since the beginning of time. Intrigue, adventure, magic, and ...more

well you know what? that was great!
except for his weird jump to conclusion once that was completely out of character.

I think I bought this book for free so I didn't mind that id was gathering dust on the shelf.
It is good pnr. it is not the new Mercy blabla or anything but I had fun reading this book and I am eager to read the rest of the serie

when I think that I am reading these books that are on my shelf for like 2 years to clear the shelf and now I have more books to read that was not the idea

I received this book for my honest review for Books Are My Escape.
This book started off with action and kept the pace up through out the book. Tanner is a shifter that has left his pack since he doesn't agree with his father, The Alpha. He is living life the way he wants to live it even though it is hard being a shifter with out a pack. His father sends some shifters to find him and lure him back saying they have a Lightbearer captured.

I was provided a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

This was my first time reading this author and I can honestly say it will not be the last. I loved Tanner. He didn't agree with his father and took steps to distance himself from him. But when push came to shove, he returned home and did the right thing. I loved that he was willing to risk it all for someone he didn't know because it was the right thing to do. I also liked how he fought his attraction to Olivia. He was determ

I received an ARC of Into the Light in return for my honest review.

Action, magic, love, death, shifters, and sex! Put all of those elements together and you get a great story!

The author drops you right into the thick of things. And, she keeps you coming back for more. She did an excellent job of weaving the tale of two different species, their myths/beliefs of each other, prejudices toward each other, and their attempt to overcome these preconceived notions.

I received this as an ARC for a Honest Review. I will attempt not to post any spoilers but there is always the chance.

This is a well put together book with a great plot that twists and turns where you least expect it.You have romance, danger and a old tale which says that if you kill a lightbear you get their power. You will be surprised when the truth comes out on how you get the power! It has super hot scenes which are tasteful without being over the top!

I love this book!! It is addictive and it kept me up all night! This should come with a warning on the cover. That aside. It is well written and the author is showing us her world of magic. Getting to know Tanner and Olivia is such a joy. The tensions between the two is mesmerizing, the need to know how it ends take over. If you have a family that needs feeding, give them the take out list and a phone. They will use it and you can read in peace. I am glad that the next book in the series is out ...more

I loved this story. The chemistry between Tanner and Olivia was amazing. Tanner is a natural born leader with a conscious and saves Olivia from certain death making an enemy of his own father. The paranormal aspects are unique with the introduction of lightbearers. Reading, you find out what each character is morally made of when they are asked to do what is expected and be loyal to their own people or do what is right. Great action, spicy love scenes, I hope there is a sequel in the works. I hi ...more

Buy this book! This was not my normal genre and I think it is safe to call this NA which I am new to but I LOVED IT!!

I love the magic and the sex and I even loved the brutality of it all.

I picked it up yesterday and only finished it today because I had to charge my ereader. The story is fast paced and never lets you up for air. I found the relationships easy to believe and I feel like there was a set up at the end f2f or a seque

i received an ARC of into the light from the author for my honest review. i did not put this book down. I loved Tanner who was a classic alpha hero in a modern setting. The author brought interesting characters into play that were easy to connect to. The world these characters inhabited was real and vivid in my mind. The plot pace was perfect and the romance was both sweet and sexy. I can't wait for the sequel. Once you read this book the author will be one of your favourites.

Loved this book!
This is a really different view of shifters! One major difference (that I heartily approve of) is though this starts with a pack of wolf shifters they can shift into many other forms such as lion and birds.
I really liked it a lot. It starts out with some shifters looking for the alpha's son and they find him playing pool in another state. Turns out he left the pack 10 years previously because his views differed greatly from his father's views. His father is a cruel pack master w

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. When I first received this book I really had know knowledge about it but agreed to be a reviewer for it. After the first few words I was hooked and was unable to put the book down.

In this book we meet Tanner. Tanner is a shifter who has left his pack and does not see any logical reason to return. His main reason for leaving his pack is he is the sole aire to his father's pack but does not believe in the practices that his father has instilled

One of the best books I've read in a long time!! I have never read Tami Lund before so I wasn't sure if I would like the book or not, I am SO happy I decided to check it out because I loved it. Tami has a wonderful style of writing, you can see what she is writing about, her concept for shifters is not the standard they are a wolf or bear and that's cool as they can be the animal they choose to be . I also really like her lightbearers, who are related in some way to the Fae, they live on earth i ...more

Loved it!

I started this with the intention of reading the first few chapters and going to bed, but at 60% I gave up the pretense of just one more chapter. I couldn't put it down. I found myself laughing not just at funny stuff but also because I was so happy at certain points in the story.

Olivia is the only heir for the coterie and as such has certain responsibilities. Responsibilities she does not want and tries to escape. Olivia is beautiful, strong, and stubborn. She has a loveable personali

Great story! Five Stars!, Review by Pamela Talley January 4, 2015
This review is from: Into the Light (Moonfate Series Book 1)
What an unique concept. Lightbearers are magical beings that replenish their magic from sunlight. They have been hidden away for over five hundred years, never seen, but the myths still survive. Aside from the Fae who created them millennia ago, Shifters are their enemies. Quentin Lyons, pack master and all around bad guy is obsessed with capturing and killing a Lightbeare

I'm not quite sure I can put into words how great this book was!! I'm not sure where this author was hiding but she is definitely got a new stalker in me!!

This story was really well written. The author did an amazing job with the characters, dialogue, and scenery. I'm absolutely in love with this world!

I love Olivia. She is so confident and brave. Even in the face of shifters who wanted to kill her, she didn't show fear. She truly is princess material. This wasn't an insta-love but the love bet

I received a copy of this wonderful book in exchange for a review and found it totally engrossing.

Imagine if Romeo and Juliet were not children of opposing houses but opposing races—opposing *magical* races.

That is the situation in Tami Lund’s Into The Light, the first book in her Lightbearer series.

Instead of the warring houses of Montague and Capulet, we are presented the tale of warring magical races: Lightbearers and Shifters. So I suppose you could say Tanner and Olivia are magic-crossed l

This is the first book of a new series by Ms. Lund and she is a new author for me. I picked up this book after reading the blurb and feeling like I was already into the story. Once I started reading this book I did not want to put it down and finished it in just two hours of non-stop reading....and once I was finished with this I was looking for the next in the series.

This author was a new to me before this book and now she's a must read! All his life Tanner was told if you kill a Lightbearer you'll get their magic and then when he meets one he saves her instead. So what happens when a shifter and a lightbearer start having feelings while trying to get her home while hiding from those who want her magic?

I really enjoyed Into the Light by Tami Lund. The book was very intriguing as the characters and the plot were unique. I thought the Lightbearers were really cool, and I loved the conflict between the shifters and the Lightbearers. Again, an interaction I haven't read before, and I couldn't wait to read what was next. Definitely a page turner. I stayed up until 2:30 am to finish it!

The romance was spot-on. Tanner and Olivia were the perfect couple. I also enjoyed the pack they acquired. Some hea

This first book in the Lightbearer series introduces the reader to a pack of shifters with a domineering pack master, his rebel son, and the race of lightbearers who stay hidden in their magically protected coterie. This mix of magical factions brings about a fast paced and enjoyable read. The book almost ends too quickly but fortunately the second book in the series is out.

This is a story about love that transcends families who have been mortal enemies for centuries. However, this does not end

This is the first book of a series. In this installment, Lightbearer Olivia falls victim of kidnapping of the local shifter pack. Pack leader, Quentin, is convinced he can absorb magic from killing her, but his son, Tanner, has other plans. Instead of killing her, Tanner helps her escape. While on the run, the two realize that their species do not need to be enemies.
This book reads as a modern Romeo and Juliet story with a happy ending. I look forward to reading the next installment. I give thi

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I had no idea what to expect going in, paranormal is not my usual genre. Regardless of genre - I really enjoyed reading this book!

The story was well written with plenty of background information in order for this new world to make sense. The characters were believable and normal despite their supernatural powers. Both Tanner and Olivia felt young, hip and fresh when they could have easily skewed old fashioned due to their secret societies.

I received this book for an honest review. Wow.. there is so much going on in this book. It is filled with ancient legends, obsession, rebellion, betrayal, friendship and of course love. It is a crazy journey that kept me up well into the night because I just could not stop reading. Danger awaits Tanner and Olivia at every turn and passions run Hot. More than just their lives are at stake, the fate of the world as we know it lies in their hands.

What a delightful read. This story is different then other shifter stories. I found it to be very refreshing. The suspense and tension kept me on the edge of my seat and I could not put the book down until I was finished. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series. The only problem I had was the formatting for my kindle HD was off but I was able to read and enjoy the story regardless.

I was giving an ARC for an honest review. WOW, I freaking loved this book! I loved the freshness of it. This story is well written, flowed well and before I knew it, over. This story will amaze you how people can believe so strongly in something that they obsess over it, it rules their life and they get others to believe as well. What is the cost for such belief? You have to read the book to find out. Fantastic read and I cannot wait for more about this world.

“But no one has seen a trace of lightbearers in over five hundred years. Somebody wiped them out. Probably our kind, trying to inherit their magic.”

“Probably our kind eating them for dinner,” Finn contributed to the conversation for the first time. “Back then we were slightly more primal.”

“Slightly,” Tanner remarked tongue in cheek.”
