As a half-faerie, Melia is an outcast in the enchanted world where she lives with her two sisters and full-blood faerie mother. The girls' father has been exiled to the mortal world for breaking his faerie troth. When a tragic accident destroys what's left of Melia's fractured family, her mother is unforgiving. The punishment she metes out will leave her daughter torn between guilt and ecstasy, challenge the bonds between three sisters, and complicate Melia's relationship with a young priest who’s come to the Realm of Faerie on a mission of his own.
Whimsical and edgy, Daughter of Light is an epic fantasy with an intriguing cosmology and well-developed characters for readers of all ages.
Praise for the Daughter of Light fantasy trilogy:
Isolt’s Enchantment, the beginnings (Prequel Novella)
I loved the beauty of the world when Vulcan first meets Una, and I especially enjoyed the explanation of Umbra. Isolt’s vengeance was absolutely delicious, and I could recommend this book based solely on that scene.—Erica at Fantasy Book Lane
Half Faerie, Book 1
I found myself sharing emotions with several characters and my husband would walk by just shaking his head, he doesn’t understand books and what they can do. I highly recommend this book. I want to thank Heidi Garrett for making my otherwise boring life so exciting with her books, I am loving it, every single minute! Five stars for Half Faerie. —KJ at Kj Reads A Lot
Half Mortal, Book 2
The pace picks up quite a bit as the stakes are raised in Half Mortal, the second book in this epic coming of age fantasy trilogy. I can totally understand why the comparison to LoTR has been drawn, as Melia and her cohorts battle numerous foes as they attempt to make things right- in both realms.—Mama Reads, Hazel Reads
War & Grace, Book 3
There are multiple skirmishes and face-offs and each one was delicious in its own right. Anton, Umbra, Lilliane…even Melia has some internal conflict to deal with before anything can be concluded. Each one is given their own turn, and. It. Is. Magnificent. I have been very dramatically disappointed with series ends before ... and I was so happy that the Daughters of Light series was not one. By far my favorite book in the series... —Brenda Ayala
