Daughter of Light


What if with one touch you could see inside the soul?

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.




Positive Elements:

Someone forgives their enemy; it is remarked that life is precious; one character sacrifices their life for another; Rowen takes her ability to heal seriously, often putting herself at risk for others.




It is never explained why Rowen was viewed as an outcast.




Characters pray; it is noted that the Word (God) does not need to be believed in to exist; characters ask where the Word is; the Word heals a character.




A character is killed by wolves; a man tries to attack Rowen; a character is an assassin, and subsequently  murders a victim; people are cut down by the enemy; war is described; a character is attacked by wolves; men are assassinated and another is stabbed; a man dies in a wagon fire; people are injured and killed by a rock; war and it’s consequences are described.




A ruffian forces Rowen to kiss him; Rowen is accused of witchcraft; one unfinished usage of “What the -“.




5 Stars




Daughter of Light is a quick paced, action packed, page turner. From the end of the first paragraph to the last word in the book, I was hooked. If you’re looking for a wholesome, Christian, entertaining read, Daughter of Light is a must read.
