The Light Tamer by Devyn Dawson

The Light Tamer Blog Tour

Jessie moved from New York to North Carolina one week after school let out for summer break. Her newly single mother and Jessie move in with grandma Gayle. Being a teen in a retirement area, is one more thing to add to her 'this sucks' list. It's bad enough to have to move, but even worse her alcoholic father left them as he went on a quest to be an artist in Greece.

Things begin to look up when she is reintroduced to Caleb, the dorky boy that saved her life one summer at the beach. Caleb is no longer scrawny and nerdy, he is now tall, dark and handsome. Caleb is a Light Tamer.

Jessie and Amber become fast friends. Amber is a no frills girl, her snarky comments and sassy attitude will raise a few eyebrows and have you laughing out loud. Amber is rough around the edges, a light tamer with only two years left to find the one she is bound to. Her father's surfing accident left her dad paralyzed and her brother dead.

Kathryn's Review
ARC from Author Devyn Dawson

I am so happy that I have had the opportunity to read The Light Tamer.  Devyn Dawson has brought us a new tale to the world of YA paranormal and as soon as I met Jessie, I was hooked.  She is such a vibrant, spunky girl that even though she has home issues and finds herself and her mom moving to live with her grandmother; her whole life becomes explosive.  
What do I mean by explosive?  Lets just say that Jessie meets an old summer friend, Caleb, and fireworks are minor compared to the sparks these two give off.  What a relationship!  And to top it off, the are both Light Tamers.  So, you are asking me, what is a Light Tamer?  That is what makes this book even more interesting, the concept that Devyn designed for this world is unique and refreshing.  What these young people have to endure to make sure they are safe and find strength in ways that show their true character is phenomenal.  
The Light Tamer is a fun, quick, exhilarating, romantic, and such a delight to read. I definitely recommend this book and hope that you go and get yourself a copy today!!
