I received this book for review from the author.

Summary: To Kyoko, mythical creatures are something you rent and watch on a Saturday night with your friends. When a mysterious stalker turns the shadows around her into dark corners with sharp deadly edges, will she be able to hide from the past? Darkness has fallen upon the world again and the guardians have been awaiting the resurrection. Though they are thought to be creatures of myth, in this reality they are far more real than people think. Only when the moon is high will these creatures, these guardians, battle the evil that seeks to overtake the world and the girl who holds ultimate power. the light in the heart of darkness.

Thoughts: I discovered A Light in the Heart of Darkness through the website Shelfari, by meeting the author. She recommended the book to me. This is the fourth book in The Guardian Heart Series, and the I first one I read. For those who are wondering, I have been told by the author that these books don't need to be read in order all of them are stand alone novels. I would describe this book as Dark Fantasy Anime, with a dash of Romance. This was my first dip into the Anime/Manga genre and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a fast paced, exciting and suspenseful. I'd definitely recommend it. I believe any Anime/Manga fan out there would enjoy this book. It's an entertaining story with amazing graphics.

Score: 5 STars
Where to buy:


  1. Is this like a manga book? I am just now starting to get into them. I recently read Millienum Snow (vampire and shape shifter) and I am loving Vampire Knight. You might want to check them out. I think I have them on my Good reads account.
    I'll have to look into this one!

  2. Yep, this is what I would call manga... But it isn't filled with all manga, like you would find in other books. I'll look into those books you mentioned. :)
