WOW! Oh my goodness! I loved it! I loved it so HARD. Its sweet, funny, captivating and all around amazing! And the sexy time was really good and totally worth the wait. I recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy romance. Even if you're not a fan of fantasy romance, I think you will enjoy this book. It isn't your typical romance. Its SO much more.

Brishen:
"Her eyes bothered him most. Unlike the Kai, hers were layers of opaque white, blue ringed in gray and black pinpoint centers that expanded or contracted with the light. The first time he’d witnessed that reaction in a human, all the hairs on his nape stood straight up. That, and the way the contrasting colors made it easy to see the eyes move in their sockets gave the impression they weren’t body parts but entities unto themselves living as parasites inside their hosts’ skulls."

Ildiko:
“Had you crawled out from under my bed when I was a child, I would have bludgeoned you to death with my father’s mace.”

Brishen:
"Her serious features relaxed into a wide smile. She possessed the teeth of a tiny horse--white and square except for two pairs of pathetic canines. He’d seen Kai toddlers with milk teeth sharper than those."

One of my all time favorite romances because the main characters actually have time to fall in love, and they aren't at each other's throats the whole time with all these fabricated misunderstandings for extra drama. It felt like how a real relationship would progress - plus Brishen is pretty dreamy!

Radiance is an enchanting story that shows how relationships change and endure over time. I loved the characters and world building in this novel.
