Last week my daughter began talking about a book called, Lightbringer by K.D. McEntire. When my daughter goes on and on about a book I know I need to read it too. As of last night I’m 65% done reading the Kindle edition and I have not been disappointed. Lightbringer is a re-imagining of Peter Pan. The story is amazing and the way McEntire has transformed the classic tale is fascinating. I mentioned to Pyr how much my daughter enjoyed the book and that it was on my nightstand, so they sent me an ARC of its sequel, Reaper (August 2012). Stay tune for more!

Wendy has the ability to see souls that have not moved on—but she does not seek them out. They seek her. They yearn for her . . . or what she can do for them. Without Wendy’s powers, the Lost, the souls that have died unnaturally young, are doomed to wander in the never forever, and Wendy knows she is the only one who can set them free by sending them into the light.

Each soul costs Wendy, delivering too many souls would be deadly, and yet she is driven to patrol, dropping everyone in her life but her best friend, Eddie—who wants to be more than friends—until she meets Piotr.

Lightbringer is a YA urban fantasy/romance set in a world a breath away from our own. Similar in tone to Tithe and Unleashed, Lightbringer tiptoes down the line between love and horror as Wendy discovers herself and the darkest parts of the afterlife.
