DESTINY’S DARK LIGHT by Sara Dobie Bauer can be classified as a paranormal romance, an urban fantasy, or a supernatural suspense novel. It is set in Charleston, South Carolina and is suspenseful, enjoyable and entertaining.

Cyan Burroughs is a light witch prophesied to battle the dark sorcerer Dorcha. Unfortunately, Cyan’s powers are still dormant until a witch flips a trolley in downtown Charleston killing and injuring many. Cyan drags Liam Cody from the wreckage and helps him extract his girlfr

A fated battle between light and dark magic with the future of the world hanging in the balance? Add in a little romance and pedigreed Southern witches and you have the definition of my jam. Unfortunately, the pacing, character develop, and aspects of the romance didn't work for me.

Cyan Burroughs, who comes from two lines of famous witches, is prophesied to be the Loach — a light witch who will take down the Dorcha (a dark witch) in a battle for the fate of the world. Her loving witchy family r

On paper this should be a perfect read for me because I love books about magic and add in some romance and I'm in book heaven. Sadly for whatever reason this particular book just wasn't a fit . The main characters Cyan and Liam are prophesied to come together which will trigger Cyans latent power to defeat a dark sorcerer but when they meet Liam is already in love with someone else. The author does have a way that makes sense in order for the couple to become involved but I just didn't truly con ...more

Nope. This is great. So exciting. So many layers! I love Cyan. And Liam. And Cyan’s entire’s family. I didn’t see who the “Dorcha” was until right before it was revealed, and I can’t even believe it. It’s not like me not to sleuth around when there’s a mystery to solve. Not only that, I was so wrapped up in the story, I didn’t even try to figure out what was going on. I just wanted to keep reading. Freaking love this.

When I started reading this story, I could not put it down. I read the book in one day. This author is an awesome writer. I can not wait to read more of their books. Keep up the great work. You should definitely read this book.

I liked this book but didn’t really love it. I generally like stories about magic but this one had a silly premise. Cyan, who comes from a long line of light witches, according to an ancient prophecy, is supposed to save the world from destruction by the dark side. Her aunt, a seer, has been painting pictures of Cyan’s one and only true love since Cyan was a baby. Because of this, Cyan is basically waiting for her magic to manifest so she can fight a war and has not dated because she’s waiting f ...more

A lovely and interesting tale minus the foul language, I’m not a big fan of that. The characters are great and the storyline is an intriguing one. Cyan and Liam had an interesting interlude which led to the great prophecy coming to be. Their pathway to their destiny was filled with pitfalls of magic, deceit, prejudice, and love. This book makes an entertaining and somewhat captivating read.

It was my Destiny to read Destiny's Dark Light!

I could see and hear the characters like they were in the same room. DDL is up there as one of my favorite reads! I didn't want it to end. Sara, we need a sequel?
Please!

Cyan is a light witch, raised by her witch family with the knowledge, from several prophecies, that she will become the savior of the white witches in a great war and fall in love with a beautiful stranger. Her life seems completely planned out, but as they do, things get a little more complicated once the prophecied times begin.

Destiny's Dark Light is an exciting and romantic thriller full of far more twists and turns than one would expect for a story wrapped around a pretty straightforward pr

3.5* rounded up! HEA

This book is truly different from any other book. It is a standalone book about magic and destiny. Usually books that involve magic and destiny and prophecy will be long and have a lot of drama and span a few books, but this one is short and sweet and suspenseful with all the twists and turns you want in a book.

This book started off with Cyan and Liam having not yet met and Liam was in love with another woman. The way the author tackled this makes sense, and I actually liked

I really liked this story. The plot was fun and entertaining. And all the characters were quirky in a fun way. I thought it mixed magic, mystery and romance into a story that kept me reading until the end to solve who the bad guy was. I liked the twists and who ended up being the good and bad witches, many that I did not see coming. I liked that the story did not delve heavily into the magic part but kept the basic plot simple so that it made the story a great read and on point. Well worth readi ...more

I usually am several steps ahead of an author by the 5th chapter. But I didn't see how this book would end until close to the very end of the book. What a great read
