He cups me close to his face, near his mouth, so that his lips are grazing the reaches of my light. “You’re warm, B.” He grins. “Like a small fluttering bird.”
Then, his grin grows into something edging on salacious, and I have one hasty, breathless thought:


...He’s going to kiss me?

Nope.
At the last moment, he opens his mouth and shoves me inside.

I had my eye on Brindi Quinn for a long time but always something came up and I was just unable to read the book. But now that I've finally read it, I can't keep myself from reading other books by Brindi.

* This is me after reading almost every book!*

Another great book from the lovely brindi quinn!!!! I received this copy from the author for an honest review!
This girl is freaking amazing. I can't believe she can wrote two completely different genres and still be amazing! The story is about a HILARIOUSLY spunky girl who can jump between three freaking realms. This may sound like your typical light verses dark book, but the twists caught me completely off guard!
This book would be great for anyone who loves mystery or steampunk! It almost rem

Thank you brindi for the review copy!

First off let's take a moment to appreciate the beauty of this cover!!

Bexley is a lightborne , chosen to protect the mortal realm from the darklings... But not all is at it seems and lines between enemies and friends seem to blur.

The world building in this book is phenomenal and the storyline was unique. Is story was impossible to put down! The magick system is amazingly done.

I love the character building for Bexley she's spunky sarcastic and pretty badass

I was sent this copy by Brindi to review. Thank you so much cause I really enjoyed it.
Bexley is a Lightborne who came across a guy, a new Lighborne, and bring him to her world. Thinking she will be the one to change his life, but meeting him will turn her life upside down.
YAAAS TO BADASS FEMALE CHARACTERS. We need more characters like Bexley. I loved her wit, her sense of humour and her badassness.
I always have a weak spot for fantasy, and the book was everything I look for in books; a good pl

What immediately caught my attention for Lightborne was the stunning cover. I’m not normally a fan of covers that are mostly yellow and gold, but in this case it creates a striking image. And, bonus points: I love the font used! So I pretty much loved everything about the cover. As for the description? That helped to peak my interest as well; Lightborne looked different from other series I have read, and being that I’m always on the hunt for something good and new, obviously I couldn’t pass up ...more

Synopsis:

Bexley is Lightborne, a unique one at that. She has the ability to drive into different realms and has a mission of protecting the Mortal Realm from the Darklings. The only downfall is Bexley has a touch of amnesia and the things and events she thinks are real may all be false. We follow her on a journey to discover who her real friends are, what her real purpose is and what version of the story she needs to believe.

Mortal Instrument readers, this may be the perfect book for you

Lightborne is the first book in The Bexley Chronicles by author Brindi Quinn.

I really enjoyed it better than some of the other books because of these points: Snarky conversation
Magic system is interesting
Easy explanation of the magic world
Unique names
Loved the steam punk references
The memory loss gets a tad annoying but I can see why it made things exciting. Especially when you're not sure what's going to happen
The main character Bexley has now become one of my favorite female characters now because In the the sense she is one of the few fantasy characters to me tha

Bex is a fiery, sassy, light-wielding badass with a tendency to get herself into all sorts of trouble. Her adventure explores a world of hazy, muddled memories to find out who the Wilted is and what her place is in this crazy, lore driven world. I couldn’t stop reading and can’t wait for the next installment :)

When I started this book I was a little apprehensive about it because at first I thought it was for a younger audience, BUT I WAS SO WRONG! This book had me hooked from the 5th page and I finished it within a day 😂
The romance is amazing and the friendships are so well built and I really relate to the main character Bexley. I adore the relationship between the three main characters (I’m not going to give away any spoilers though!) and the vi
