What is that mark? As the Shadonae rise in the west and war threatens the north, a young woman discovers she is not human . . . Rowen Mar finds a strange mark on her hand, and she is banished from her village as a witch. She covers the mark with a leather glove and seeks sanctuary in the White City. She lives in fear that if she touches another person, the power inside her will trigger again, a terrifying power that allows her to see the darkness inside the human heart . . . But the mark is a summons, and those called cannot hide forever.For the salvation of her people lies within her hand. Morgan L. Busse writes stories about the hope that in darkness there is light.

    Oh my goodness! I can see why this book got nominated for a Christy Award last year! It is so very powerful and left me breathless with the allegorical messages that many times I had to reread (they were just that powerful)!

    I knew when I started reading Daughter of Light that I was in for adventure, but I didnt realize how much of an adventure I was going to be getting! My heart went out Rowen and the pain she struggled with throughout her journey. At times it was very grievous and even when she does understand the meaning of the mark it was still far from glamorous.

    Never was there a dull moment and halfway through I felt the full spiritual impact of many things mentioned in the book previously! There were many times I had to wipe tears from my eyes because of what Rowen was starting to understand!

    The world-building was great and described excellently! It wasnt overdone nor had too little details! I really enjoyed the majority of the side characters and am looking forward to hearing more of their story in book two!

    Daughter of Light is definitely a novel I am more than grateful to have read because liked I said in the beginning, its powerful! Morgan has such a unique and God-given voice throughout this story that will not only engage and entertain, but leave you really reflecting on Gods light as well as His power! She truly shows that even in darkness there is always Gods light!

    *(I received this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review! All thoughts expressed are my own and I was not required to write a positive review!)*

    Warning: rambling commentary ahead. I've loved Fantasy ever since reading Lord of the rings in 6th grade. Eventually I ran out of fantasy by Christian authors and moved on to more secular works. While some of them are fantastic, pun intended, they've never resonated with me the way more allegorical stories do. A fantastic example of this is The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks which I liked. (It's been called a Tolkien knock-off, but I've never seen a problem with that.) The Sword is a mirror that shows its bearer a reflection of their true selves. How the sword-bearer handles this knowledge illuminates the nature of characters and drives the plot forward, but it never goes any further than that. In Daughter of Light, Busse takes a similar device to the next level adding the depth and redemptive meaning that is often missing in more secular works. Stories like Daughter of Light are the reason I love the fantasy genre so much.

    Rowen Mar has lost everything. Her family, her friends, her home. A mark appears on her hand and with it the power to see the darkness in the peoples she touches. They see it too, thus she is sent into exile with only one hope: a job as a varor to a young lady, thanks to the military service of her adoptive father.

    I love the characters and could just feel what they were feeling, experiencing. I love that Rowen is strong character who know how to handle a sword, but it doesn't diminish her feminine side either. And having the story told from the perspective of a varor was interesting and refreshing. I also love Lore's loyalty and honor, and his respectfulness. I'm curious how Caleb and Nierne's stories will continue in the next book.

    The story begins slow, and not in a bad way, but weaves in hints and questions that keeps you wanting to know more. There are multiple story threads that at first you don't know how they are going to tie together, but then you start piecing the puzzle together. It's a bigger story than just Rowen discovering who she is and the love interest, which, I am hoping for a good payoff in the next book. The introduction to the other point of views were a little jarring at first, because I couldn't tell how they were related to each other, but once they were introduced, it flowed well and kept me turning the pages. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.
