“Melia remains an engrossing protagonist … Garrett’s prose is, once again, lyrical and serene … A stirring, satisfying ending to an epic, otherworldly series.” —Kirkus Reviews


In a time when the Realm of Faerie and Planet Earth exist in symbiotic union, the epic journey of a young half-faerie woman will transform the future of both worlds.


My name is Melia Albiana and I stand on the edge of the abyss.

Before I leap, I exhale a breath out of time.

The beauty of the Whole unfurls before me—its intricacy, its complexity, its endurance, its mystery, its majesty.

I am filled with awe.

The universal awareness passes and I am left with the poverty of my personal legacy.

I will die young.

I will die broken.I will die grief-stricken.

I will die lonely.And I will die a monster.

I will also die consumed by love.


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

Kerrin Mayham's eye for beauty has shaped her life. Now a mother, she wants to teach her daughter that beauty can be both nourishing and treacherous. However, Mirabella is far too young to hear the truth of her mother's hard-won knowledge, so Kerrin wraps a fantastical bedtime story of magic shoes, enchanted oak trees, witches, and sad kings around actual events. 

As mother tells the story and daughter interjects, Kerrin returns to her past when she was at the pinnacle of her career as an independent film director. Seduced by a beautiful young predator, she takes a risk that puts her life in danger and shakes the core of her identity. Finally forced to ask the hard questions about the demons that drive her, Kerrin doesn't flinch. Her honest answers deepen her experience of life--and her eye for beauty. 

The novella is a retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen tale "Beautiful."
