Book Description

Named as one of the 50 Self-Published Books Worth Reading in 2014 by Indie AuthorLand

Book #1 in the Ancients of Light series

In the beginning...there were Vampire.

Man’s fall from grace sparked the birth of the Dark creatures from the underworld. To counter the explicit threat to mankind, divinely-created immortals were brought forth. The Witch encompassed seven Castes of power; their magic was most effective against the nefarious agenda pursued by their enemies. Over the thousands of years of war, members of each breed have been swayed to the calling of the other, leaving neither able to claim ultimate victory in its mission.

This first book in the Ancients of Light series establishes the foundation for the events that have brought the Realm to its current circumstance and sets the stage for last days within the war of Ancients. A primeval Prophecy culminates in this era, bringing final resolution to the eternal battle that has waged between the Vampire and Witch, the Light and the Dark.

The Chosen...
Kaitriana’s gift of magic is unrivaled in the Realm. A feisty beauty and descendant of the most powerful Ancient in existence, her birth was foretold ages before her time. Destined to lead the Realm to peace, as she comes to power she is betrayed by her own kind, destroying her birthright and all hope of delivering the Realm from the sinister shadow of the Ancient Darks.

Lorcan is a heralded champion, a mighty warlord within the Vampire species. He is part of the faction that abandoned their Dark beginnings and found purpose in the Ancient Light, though his breed has long been estranged from the Witch that ally with them in battle. His animosity towards the magical immortals is personal - his traitorous mother was a Queen within their ranks. Having long since severed all ties with his former kin, his existence remains plagued by repercussions of her treachery and a secret that threatens to be his downfall.

An Ancient Prophecy tells that only two in all of creation can banish the Darks and bring peace to the Realm. When Kaitriana miraculously appears seeking his protection, Lorcan will be required to forsake his duty and disregard the dictates of the Ancients to shelter the female. To fulfill her role, Kaitriana must rebuild the alliance between her own species and the Vampire, while inducing her arrogant guardian to confront his true nature. Together they must combat the Ancient Dark and surmount the forces within their own factions that would oppose the Prophecy. Their fates have always been intertwined and only when joined with the strength of the other can they triumph over a blood feud that has shadowed the Light for millennia.

About the Ancients of Light series
Chosen is the first in the thirteen books of the Ancients of Light series and is only the beginning of a young Witch’s journey toward developing both the strength of character and magic that will be required to fulfill her prophesied role as leader of the Light faction.

Revelations of nuances in the Prophecy - facets that were never fully comprehended by the Ancients - will continue in successive stories. The culmination of its true meaning in the destiny of the supernatural world of the Realm will only be revealed when Kaitriana is adequately prepared to lead the Warriors now being called together to champion the Light’s purpose.

Familiar characters return for each storyline as the focus turns to a new key couple in every book - a pair that significantly factors into the purpose of Light – however, the story of the Chosen does not end with Book #1. Kaitriana and Lorcan, their growth together as partners in leadership and in love as a couple, will thread through the series as Kaitriana assumes the role that was destined as hers since the beginning.

    About the Author

    Heather Fleener lives in Indiana with her husband, D.A. and their twins, Thomas and Alexandra. Professionally she has spent her career working in the area of Intellectual Property law. Reading has been a passion of hers since she was young and she has adored romance novels her entire life. The romantic styles of Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood are her inspiration, though she has read and loved the stories of countless other authors. Her fascination with the paranormal began to form at the young age of six, watching late-night ghost and vampire movies with her Grandpa. Unfortunately, as a result, she also remains afraid of the dark to this day. Combining her love of epic romances and the supernatural was a natural progression for her overactive imagination. When the idea for the Ancients of Light series began, it was an abstract story line rambling around in her head to help kill a few miles on the treadmill. As the stories and plotlines continued to grow, it finally became necessary to put the words to paper and build the characters that had been living in the Realm and having conversations in her head for months. The series is a testament to many miles on the treadmill and lots of characters that insist on having their stories told.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Totally loved it! 9 April 2013
    Format:Paperback
    Oh wow, I totally loved this book!
    The world it is all set in, The Realm, is so well crafted and detailed. There are two sides, the light and the dark. The Light, originally just the witches, are created to help protect humans from the Dark- originally the Vampires. Eventually, some vampires became part of the light, and were united with the witches in fighting the dark, until a betrayal created a rift between the vampires and witches.
    A prophecy is foretold of a female witch who will have powers from the 7 castes, and will be the Chosen; she will unite the species and bring an end to the dark. Step forward, Kat! Kat is a super powerful witch and the Chosen. With Lorcan, the Warrior of Light vampire at her side they can fulfil the prophecy.
    I thought Kat was great, she was spirited and mischievous. She has a playful sense of humour that lends amusement to this richly woven saga. She was sassy, without being irritatingly so. Her assurance in the strength of her powers is great, my favourite quote comes from a point where she's seriously angry with two men who won't listen to her properly for different reasons: `I am amazing and you arrogant asses are too feeble minded to realize it!' That had me laughing, especially in the context of the book.
    Lorcan is awesome; he's sinfully handsome, a bit arrogant (he is the Warrior of Light after all), totally kick-ass and a powerful Vampire- with a witch mother. He can be a bit domineering at times, but I think it can only be expected when you consider that he was born in a time when men were the top dogs.
    Actually it's one of the things I loved about this book, it's set in modern times but has a historical feel to it because the characters are very old. This was a great blend for me.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant must read 21 Oct. 2012
    By Bec
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Book provided by author

    In the first century of creation the Vampire split into Dark and Light factions. The Light Vampire faction united with the Witch because of the mating between the Ancient Queen in the Warrior Caste of Witch, Brisen and an elder Vampire Alaric.

    The Ancient Queen Witch was believed to have betrayed her coven and was killed by her mate. They were united no longer, Vampire believed all the Witch untrustworthy while the Witch were adamant of the Ancient Queens innocence and were enraged by her murder. Now, the Witch and Vampire had a dubious truce only on the battlefield.

    A thousand years after the betrayal a prophecy was foretold by Ancient Myrrdyn of the Witch. He said a girl would be born who would wield the ultimate combination of powers from all 7 Caste of Witch and put an end to the Dark. In order to do this she had to take a Vampire as her mate. She was named, the Chosen. Will this girl find her mate and fulfil the prophecy? Or will mankinds only hope be destroyed?

    Heather Fleener sends readers on a magical journey in this tale of good vs evil. Her descriptions make the story come alive and makes the reader yern to know more.
    It was a brilliant read and i look forward to reading the next installment

    4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read 6 Mar. 2014

    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    So loran is hot, mighty alpha which is always a good start and the heroine katriana is a likeable character. She has understanding, a temper and stubbornness, however the shortfall for me was (and this may make more sense when you've read the book) although we start in the Middle Ages past, and the book brings us into the modern future, other than being told that you would never know. I know that the culture Lorcan lives in would not be a modern lifestyle but there are some very ancient socialites which I think become overbearing and made me feel that Kat wasn't being an understanding partner in her submissions, but actually it came across as a bit uncomfortable. Instead of the well written words explaining why lorcan acts in a certain way completing the scene, it actually makes the whole thing spoiled by the way kats actions/reactions are then explained/written. Other than this though I did really enjoy the book. It felt easy to be part of their world and culture and I never felt lost. It was a good pace throughout with enough description and characters to keep it going. I would certainly recommend giving this a go!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Magic and Fangs 26 Aug. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed this book. Initially I found the book a tad annoying. I liked that Kaitriana was a strong character but I thought that the author making her appear juvenile and spoilt didn't gel with the fact that she was the chosen one, I think her inexperience could have been portrayed differently. This is only a minor gripe though and I thoroughly enjoyed the book and I think the series is going to be great. Buy it if you like magic, vampires and good action scenes. I'm off to buy the next in the series now!

    5.0 out of 5 stars surprising find :-) 29 Oct. 2014
    By Kay
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I think it's great when you stumble along a book this well written :-) I found this book by mistake and it caught my eye, reading the blurb I thought it would be just ok but I change that to great now I have read it :-)
    I love that there was a lot of prejudice throughout between the witches and vampires let along side your more conventional light and dark.
     Loved how 'sassy' Kaitriana is and how she speaks her mind and tries not to be too stubborn when it comes to Lorcan.
