Brand of Light
by Ronie Kendig
Book 1 of the Droseran Saga series
Rating: 4/5

Wow. I have never read anything like this before and I definitely need to keep reading more. Took one star away because it began a bit slowly for me and was a little bit confusing. The author has created this entirely new world (or worlds) and it took me a bit to figure out what was happening to who. I grew to love the characters and was fascinated by their adventures and motivations.

Kersei Dragoumis' technology-free world has fallen apart and she doesn't know what to do. She has been framed for something she did not do and has lost everything. She used to live a simple and peaceful life but now all hell has broken loose and she is in a battle for survival in space. Kersei has hidden her brand from everyone just as her mother told her to, but now the brand has started hurting her and she doesn't know what to do. How will she survive this crazy journey?

In another part of space, Marco Dusan is a skilled and gifted hunter - a Kynigos - who has must track down Kersei for her crimes. However, there's something about Kersei that doesn't make sense. Marco must uncover the mystery surrounding Kersei and bring about justice.

If you love sci-fi with mystery and adventure, I would highly recommend this book for you. I'm eager to read on in the series. There is also some romance in this story but I wouldn't necessarily call this a romance by itself. There's much more action and mystery in this brilliant story.

Like some other books I've read, I thought there would be a glossary or something in the beginning to help the reader sort through some of the language differences and mythology but as far as I could tell, there was not. Definitely has some impressive world-building and I appreciate Kendig's imagination.

My thanks to the publisher and CelebrateLit for an ARC of the book. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. No positive review was expected and no compensation received.
