Sweet Light by Jen Wylie

Synopsis:
When fate conspires against you and gives you three loves to choose from, what do you do? What if you make the wrong choice?
Shara is a healer, raised and trained from childhood until her unique gift manifests itself. When she gains the rank Journeyman she is hired to serve as the court healer for the barbaric kingdom of Glendor.
Untrained for war, she is thrust unmercifully into its bloody arms when the kingdom is invaded. Ordered by her king to the front lines to tend the wounded, she is forced to flee when their camp is attacked. Happening upon a wounded soldier in the forest, every mile back to the capital is a struggle, and breaking the healer’s code, she falls in love with her charge.
If Shara thought that to be the least of her troubles, the appearance of a fierce warrior captain who appoints himself her protector, teaches her differently. Trouble comes in threes at the appearance of a former love and fellow healer. Faced with decisions of the heart and the sudden manifestation of her gift, there is little room for anything else to go wrong. Or at least that’s what Shara thought.

Review: Sweet Light by Jennifer Wylie is a wonderful and interesting read. I enjoyed the story because it went past the superficial ideals of love, into a deeper level of love. In Sweet Light we see different levels of love played through out the story. We meet Tirel, Shara's past lover. It is obvious that the feelings between the two have not yet died. Shara's relationship with David is pure and unblemished in the beginning and than we have her relationship with Dric. Although more like a friendship there's a lot of tension between the two, more than Shara likes to admit. I thought it was great that the relationships through out the book were deep and complex and I think Wylie did an excellent job playing with them. Overall, I found it refreshing that David's character is not your average knight in shining armor. Although a skilled swordsman, his battle wounds run deep. I loved that David's character was realistic. Wylie did a wonderful job displaying David's vulberabilities. When we first meet David, he is wounded and mute. There is nothing strong about him but rather Shara is the strong one. I found this an extremely interesting set up. My only complaint is that the end seems unfinished or unresolved, but maybe we'll see a second book. I highly recommend this novel if you're a lover of romance/fantasy.
