Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan

I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice. 

Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake. 

As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger. 

In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end.

My Review  
I really enjoyed this book! It was a very different story & had me hooked as soon as I started it! I loved the whole light vs. darkness idea from the beginning and was impressed with all the things that light could do!  Llona is a spectacular heroine, too! She's seems like such a weak & fragile little girl who hides from the world, but as she learns more about herself & the world around her she grows & changes in some unexpected ways! There are lots of surprises - some good, some bad, and action & mystery around every corner. I will definitely be looking for more of this story!
