Book Blurb:

I always knew I was different.

From a young age, my mind has been plagued with things only I could see. Some hauntingly beautiful, others completely terrifying. Never knowing if these visions were real or just hallucinations, I learned how to lock them down and ignore them. I learned to take solace in the relative anonymity of city life and find peace in the rainy days my city of Seattle is known for.

But just when I think my life is getting on track and my dreams are achievable, a moment of weakness causes me to learn a hard and fast lesson.

My entire existence has been a lie.

Now I’m faced with a new reality that’s as implausible as it is fantastical. Filled with realms and veils, light and dark, fae and daemons, gods and angels—things I don’t understand but am forced to acknowledge. It doesn’t help that the man teaching me about my unique gifts is the gorgeously handsome Carrick Byrne, one of Seattle’s richest and most powerful men. He intimidates, annoys, and intrigues me all at the same time. I don’t trust him and yet there’s no one else to help me.

No longer certain who to put my faith in, what to believe, or how I fit into it all, one revelation is clear…

The world as I know it will never be the same again.

  The Revelation of Light and Dark is book one of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

Review by Trinette Dungee


Finely Porter has spent most of her life thinking she was crazy. Literally. She would look at people and sometimes see, not a person but other creatures. Her family chalked it up to a vivid childhood imagination, or imaginary friends. As she got older and the behavior continued, her father, having suffered through mental illness of his own, had her committed to a psychiatric facility at the age of ten. As years passed, Finley learned to control what she saw in some people. To placate her family, (her father and twin sister Fallon), she took the drugs prescribed for her and never again mentioned what she saw. Until the day Carrick Bryne walked into her life. Carrick is one of Seattle’s most handsome and richest men and upon sight he dislikes her. It is Carrick who introduces Finley to a world of mystical immortal beings that proves that she was not crazy after all. To the average person, these beings look like normal people, but Finley can see beyond their cover. Despite his dislike for Finley, Carrick is also mystified by her since she’s the only human who can see  beyond the human fa├žade and see the creatures for who they truly are, so he must now work with her to understand how this is possible and why.


Finley is introduced to a world full of Dark Fae, Light Fae, and Daemons. Some are good, some are bad, and now word is getting out that she is the only human who can see them, and her life could possibly be in danger. While Carrick is curious about Finley, Finley is curious about him. Carrick says he human, yet he too is able to see beyond masks these creatures wear. If she’s the only human who can do this, how can he? What is he?


I’m not a fan of paranormal or supernatural storylines, and I’m also not a fan of cliffhangers, but that’s exactly what Sawyer Bennett has given us; a paranormal/supernatural storyline with several cliffhangers. And because I have yet to meet a Sawyer Bennett book that I didn’t like, I had to give it a try.  I have to say, I honest and truly thought I was going to come out of this book giving it three stars because it’s just not a genre I’m a fan of and I was going to struggle through it. I’m pretty much a punk when it comes to paranormal so I’d convinced myself that I would probably have to read during the day. I was wrong on every level!!


I will admit, the first few chapters did have me feeling like I was going to need to sleep with the light on for a few months, but that feeling quickly passed the more I got into the story. For her first time with this genre, Sawyer knocked it out of the park. The storyline was good, the characters were great, and the connection was immediate. The pace and the flow were perfect. I was thoroughly impressed with this read. The only thing stopping this from being a five star read is, some of the backstory or description of the types of Faes and Daemons was confusing and I had to reread those sections to get a better understanding and I’m not quite sure I truly get it; but I understand why it’s needed. There are five books in this series, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the other four. Luckily the releases aren’t that far apart (I think that’s the only reason I’m okay with it being a cliffhanger, LOL).


There’s actually a prequel book (making the series six books), that I read after book one. You can read it prior, but the storyline actually made more sense to me reading it after book 1.
