Review: BROKEN (Ancients of Light, #3) by Heather Fleener

The Light’s Duty to Protect 
A war over the fate of mankind sparked the creation of the Ancients - Light and Dark - one divinely-created guardians, the other hell-spawned killers. The conflict raged within the Realm for millennia, neither faction triumphant in its purpose. In recent history the Darks have adopted a more surreptitious path - the boom of technology allowing the Dark One to insinuate himself into the midst of those he would most like to destroy. Tragic consequences result when the Ancients of Light pursue the Darkness into the Outer Realm. The Prophecy continues…

Darkness Claimed Her Soul
The adversity of Kylie’s youth forged an indomitable spirit. A vibrant and strong woman determined to plot the course of her life with room for nothing beyond the next measure of success, Kylie believed in only herself, and most certainly neither destiny nor love. All those tenants were derailed with a single encounter, but the same man that tempted her to live again drew her into the middle of an aged war, the consequence being her own destruction, plummeting her into a hellish existence. 

A Warrior Haunted by His Failure 
Sayer’s mission was only to foil the latest plan of the Darks in the Outer Realm and return a few Vampire to Hell. Finding a perfect mortal that tempted him beyond all reason was unforeseen complication. Just when Sayer realizes that his eternity is meant for one alone, Kylie is destroyed by the Darks, and the loss drives him to the pits of despair, revealing events of the past that would best be long forgotten. 

Tragedy will Reveal Those of Divine Purpose
Sayer’s appearance in her life was the catalyst to fulfilling a destiny that has existed since Kylie’s creation. Their fate thwarted by Darkness, both shattered by tragedy, Kylie and Sayer must return to the love that once was while finding absolution and seeking forgiveness, or perish apart. Only once all that was broken is returned to unblemished will God’s own Warriors rise. The beginning of the beginning…

Wow,I loved Kylie and Sayer's story! Actually I have loved the first two couples' stories too but I think this one is my favorite so far.Though we may not have been through the extent of the pain and torment that Kylie has endured,I believe we call all relate to her on some level. Kylie and Sayer have to work through so much pain and torment from the past while trying to live in the present in hopes of having a future together. Their story is about loss, heartache,torment,betrayal,vengeance, friendship,trust,and forgiveness.
Kylie is trapped in darkness of no fault of her own but her actions while she was plagued with this darkness still grapples at her soul to once more pull her under.She must find a way to overcome her pain and forgive herself or risk the chance of loosing a new beginning,a mate who desperately loves her,and friends who care for her.I totally love the Realm and wished I could live in it as Heather does in her mind but I did end up having dreams of the Realm.Heather has created a unique world where Witch and Vampire fight together.There are those who prefer to live in the Dark believing one day their endeavors will prevail over the Light.While the Light does its best to thwart the attacks of the Dark and fulfill a prophecy in hopes of putting an end to the Dark.The Rise of the Queens has begun and now is the "The Beginning of the Beginning".

About Author:
Heather Fleener lives in Indiana with her husband, D.A. and their twins, Thomas and Alexandra. Professionally she has spent her career working in the area of Intellectual Property law. 

Reading has been a passion of hers since she was young and she has been a closet-romance junkie her entire life. The romantic styles of Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood are her inspiration, though she has read and loved the stories of countless other authors. Her fascination with the paranormal began to form at the young age of six, watching late-night ghost and vampire movies with her Grandpa. Unfortunately, as a result, she also remains afraid of the dark to this day.

Combining her love of epic romances and the supernatural was a natural progression for her overactive imagination. When the idea for the Ancients of Light series began, it was an abstract story line rambling around in her head to help kill a few miles on the treadmill. As the stories and plotlines continued to grow, it finally became necessary to put the words to paper and build the characters that had been living in the Realm and having conversations in her head for months. 

Ancients of Light is a series of thirteen novels - a testament to many miles on the treadmill and lots of characters that insist on having their stories told.
