For those who don’t know, I write a series called “Lightbearer.” It’s about these people who get their magic from the sun. They must soak up a certain amount of sunlight each day in order to regenerate their magic. And if they are cut off from the sun for too long, they’ll die.
Not that I did it on purpose when I came up with the idea, but they are sort of the polar opposite of vampires. When I realized that, I made a comment in the first book of the series, Into the Light, along the lines of Lightbearers being poisonous to vampires, since sunlight sorta kinda runs in their veins.
Wait, Into the Light isn’t really the first, not anymore. After I’d written eleven books in the series, I went back and wrote a prequel. First Light takes place five hundred years ago, back when the Lightbearers first went into hiding to escape from the shapeshifters who wanted to kill them and steal their magic. It helps explain how the urban legends started (that killing a Lightbearer means you inherit their magic), and how the Lightbearers ended up living in a secret, magically protected coterie on the shore of Lake Michigan. It also sets up the possibility of Lightbearers and shifters potentially choosing to be lovers instead of enemies (which is what happens in Into the Light).
First Light is also free, and it’s part of this double boxed set chock-full of series-starting freebies. Year of the Wolf Pack, Part One and Part Two. My book is in Part Two, which will be available January 9-14. In the meantime, there are a bunch of books for you to read in Part One, which is available now (but only until January 7, so download asap). Here’s the link: https://instafreebie.com/free/sE9T7.
If you can’t wait until January 9 to read First Light, head over to my website (http://tamilund.com/free-read/) for the link. Otherwise, on January 9, you’ll be able to download the entire second boxed set.
Happy New Year and enjoy your reading!
