Luminous Kindle Edition
From the author of Crown of Coral and Pearl comes an immersive new fantasy about a witch who must learn to harness her power—or risk losing her loved ones forever.
Liora has spent her life in hiding, knowing discovery could mean falling prey to the king’s warlock, Darius, who uses mages’ magic to grow his own power. But when her worst nightmare comes to pass, Darius doesn’t take her. Instead, he demands that her younger sister return to the capital with him. To make matters worse, Evran, Liora’s childhood friend and the only one who knows her secret, goes missing following Darius’s visit, leaving her without anyone to turn to.
To find Evran and to save her sister, Liora must embrace the power she has always feared. But the greatest danger she’ll face is yet to come, for Darius has plans in motion that will cause the world to fall into chaos—and Liora and Evran may be the only ones who can stop him.

“Shining prose, radiant characters, and a love story that burns bright.” —Elly Blake, New York Times bestselling author of the Frostblood Saga

!! Spoilers ahead :
My negative critique that didn’t sit well with me at the end was the treatment of their father and the glorification of their mother. Granted their father made some judgement mistakes out of fear and trying to prevent them from embracing who they were , BUT he was not the one who willingly abandoned his children, one of which the mother knew also had magic and would not get to be her full self? Idk it didn’t sit well with me there at the end, that the girls largely blamed the father for their issues. yes the father acted out of fear trying to protect those he cared about in a horrible way but the mom up and abandoned her entire family to be free for herself. Other than that, I really did enjoy the story.
