Review of Symphony of Light and Winter by Renea Mason


Symphony of Light Book One

One woman. Seven men. All bound by one man’s undying devotion.

Fundraiser Linden Hill has a knack for reading people. She always knows which conversations will put a prospect at ease, which drink will loosen a patron’s lips—or his wallet, and how cleavage will make a donor sweeten the deal. She’s even foreseen her dateless weekends four hundred and sixty-four times in a row.

But ten years after watching life drain from her former mentor’s and first love’s eyes, her skills for divining the predictable are lost. When Cyril returns, he’s still gorgeous, but this time he’s beyond human, far less dead, and pissed. His lack of memory drives him to desperate acts, and his turbulent re-acquaintance with Linden pulls her into his war with a creature hell-bent on his destruction. His group of six supernatural men share a tantalizing secret, but despite the hunger, it’s love that leads her to sacrifice everything to save him…

Rating and Audience:

I would have to give this book a solid 10 out of 10. It is well written, it has a great story and an unexpected twist at the end that is sure to lure the reader into the series. It does have explicit sex scenes so it isn’t for everyone.


I actually won a copy of this book in an online contest and it was one of the best prizes I’ve ever won.

Symphony of Light and Winter is an amazing work of art. Beautifully written, the story flows like music and makes me think of a perfectly composed musical score but there is serious power in this piece, the kind that keeps you on your toes. From the very beginning, Mason makes takes you on an erotic and emotional journey exploring the powerful attraction between Linden and Cyril, the fantastic events that spanned their shared history, and the dangerous foe that hunts them. From the very beginning, there is this amazing chemistry between Cyril and Linden and it only grows as the reason behind their connection is revealed.

Everything in the book is fast paced; there is a rush of adrenaline that hits when Cyril confronts Linden in the very beginning, and that rush follows you throughout the book. I love that there was no lull in the story. Even when filling in the missing pieces of Cyril’s memory, Mason keeps you enthralled. It was one of those books that keeps you reading late into the night, simply because you can’t bear the thought of waiting to find out what happens next.

For anyone who thinks that the paranormal field has been overdone, you should really give this book a try. I admit, The world is filled with thousands of romances involving vampires, shapeshifters, and various other creatures but this one is different, completely unexpected and refreshing. I have to say that this was one of the most unique books I’ve ever read. I won’t post any spoilers, so you will have to read it and find out for yourself why I won’t be satisfied until I find out what happens next!
