Tuesday, November 13, 2012
SYNOPSIS: Fans will be thrilled with the final novel in the Meridian trilogy as the romance between Meridian and Tens heats up. And Juliet returns, but her obsessions leave her open to evil exploitation.

As centuries of secrets are revealed, the battles will pit Light versus Dark. Not all with survive as Meridian, Tens, and Juliet join forces to try to thwart a potential tragedy.
REVIEW: Speed of Light was an interesting read and different from what I had been reading lately.  I enjoyed the story to its full extent and loved the characters. The story bounces back and forth between Meridian and Juliet in the first person narrative with mainly Meridian being the leading lady. I enjoyed the two different points of views and only wished to have been inside of Juliet’s mind more often if not more than Meridian. While throughout the book, it seems as Meridian is the main character but to me Juliet stood out as the main character. This book is a classic twist on Good vs. Evil, Light vs. Dark. I could feel the heartache, sorrow and love of each of the characters throughout the entire story. With that being said, I have to admit, I was often quite confused while reading and had to reread a few parts a couple times over to make sure I understood what was happening. I hadn’t realized that the book was the third and final installment of the series (trilogy). However it was still extremely well written and enjoyable. Amber Kizer does a brilliant job with the characters. Almost each and every one of them have an unknown past which brings them all together and for the ones that knew their past or their families they fit in with the group with one simple desire. To see Light defeat the Dark. The book is equally balanced with love, humor, heartache and sorrow. Everything that is said or done has a purpose which may not be understandable at first but it all fits within the story. As I may have liked this book so well, I’m afraid I couldn’t enjoy it to its fullest potential due to the fact that I hadn’t read the previous two books. The fact that it’s different than most books I’ve been reading and that it was extremely well written I was able to adore this book. I must admit though I cannot wait to reread it after I have the chance to read the first two books only then can I truly appreciate the good work that lays in front of me.
