At First Light is the first book in a new series by Barbara Nickless. I picked this book because it was one of my options being a prime member for the Kindle First. The two main characters are Dr. Evan Wilding who’s a professor and Addie who is a detective.
I found the story to be excellent from page one to the last page, it kept me completely engrossed and interested. There was not a lull at all in the story everything moved seamlessly and fast without any extra unnecessary aspects.
I really liked both main characters. I found Dr. Evan Wilding and Addie both to be personable, funny, but serious we need it. They were intriguing characters who bounced off of each other well, with a hint of maybe a romance coming in future books.
One of the things I enjoyed most from this authors book was that it had a good mix of characters and they were an inclusive cast. For instance one character is a male with dwarfism, another character is a male with autism. I enjoyed the fact that the author brought in characters that you don’t often see in books and I found myself so connected to each one.
The mystery surrounding the case was spectacular. I wasn’t sure if I would be interested in it since it does deal with things like Viking history and runes but I found that that did not distract from the storyline at all and I found myself interested in the way the author presented it.
This book was hard to put down from page 1 and I was sad anytime I had to take a break for life lol. If you enjoy a story with a good mystery, a great whodunit, a true psychological thriller, and one that will keep you on your toes where you won’t find yourself knowing who the killer is then this is definitely a book you should pick up. It is not often that I go through an entire book and I’m shocked at who the killer is but this one easily fell in to that category. If I had one thing that I really was upset over, it would be that apparently book 2 doesn’t come out until a year from now ☹
