Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
Bright wishes he wasn’t the god of the suns.
Every day is the same: he makes the suns rise and then they set. He looks down at humanity’s corruption. He watches wars, people starving, and thieves stealing.
He can’t help. Every time he tries, the humans take something from him. They’ve destroyed his family and he has no doubt that they’d like to destroy him, too.
Adonya is a raven-haired witch with powers that make her as close to a goddess as a human can be. He’s wondered what it was like to be with a woman, but all the goddesses are dead.
He can feel it when he touches her–she’s as dangerous as all the rest of the humans. Can the power of love join their races together? Or will one of them wind up dead in the end?
In Bright’s Passion, Bright is the God of the suns. He makes the suns rise every morning, and makes them set every night. Meanwhile, he watches time pass by, he is a witness to wars, to people starving, thievery, rape, murder. He can’t help, because if he does, humans tend to take something from him. They destroyed his family, and he has no doubts they would like to destroy him too.
Adonya is a witch with powers that make her as close to a goddess as a human can be. Bright longs to be with her – he wonders what it’s like to be with a woman, considering all the goddesses are dead. But despite her powers, Adonya is still human, and she’s as dangerous as the rest of them. Can a human and an immortal fall in love?
I enjoyed how the book focused on Bright, the immortal, rather than on Adonya, the mortal, as most fantasy books seem to do. It was an interesting read, and I enjoyed getting to know Bright. Writing from the POV of a God isn’t easy, but the author did an admirable job pulling it off.
If you enjoy fantasy romance, I would recommend Bright’s Passion.
