The saying goes that all men are created equal... but Nicole Abbot knows better. Lacking the supernatural gifts of the Sentients she has known all her life, Nicole has lived with her nose pressed to the glass, withering beneath the guilt of her own inadequacies and the disapproving glare of her father. It's easy to believe that the universe has forgotten all about her, but things are not always as they seem. With the arrival of Christian Wright, a handsome but complex Combatant with a troubled history, Nicole is forced to question everything she has ever believed about herself, proving that sometimes, our most flawed perceptions are those reflected in a mirror.
Jennifer DeLucy again plunges us into the world of lingering spirits, dark apparitions, and malicious vampires. But this time she takes us to the California coast where we get to know a new ensemble of gifted souls that are just as vibrant and endearing as the Sentients we came to love in Seers of Light. In Whisper of Light, DeLucy delivers exciting supernatural encounters as well as very human interactions that will both break your heart and make it soar.

My Thoughts:
I absolutely loved Seers of Light and when Micha from Omnific Publishing asked me if I wanted to review the second book in the series I jumped at the chance.

This story follows the Sentients from the West Coast and the story is told from Nicole Abbot's POV.  I was surprised to find that the timeline of the first book and this one is around the same time and after you read this you will see what I mean.

Nicole is the sweetest woman you could ever meet.  She has the patience of a Saint and is very sensitive.  She lives with a bunch of misfit Sentients and while both her parents are sentients, Nicole doesn't seem to have inherited that ability.  She has a full on responsibilty providing therapy for children through music and looks after her mother who seems to be suffering from Alzeimers/Memory loss.  Her father is a bitter man and blames his daughter for the rapid decline of his wife, and takes time out of his day to taunt Nicole.  It's heartbreaking to see a father treat his own daughter like that and I just wanted to jump in the book and give her a hug!

When Christian disappears for a while in the first book Seers of Light, he comes to stay with Nicole's family and we get to see a very different side to him.  I won't say much more than that. 

Whisper of Light is beautifully written and I can guarantee if you enjoyed Seers of Light you will absolutely fall in love with Nicole and her family.  Fantastic Read!
