    2. I finished this book with tears stinging my eyes. I've been a fan of Claire wallis , ever since I read Push in 2014. She's taken three years to write another book and it has been well worth the wait.The main theme of this story is compassion. It runs like the Gold mother vein in this world's dark and traitorous caverns . Compassion , those who have it , are blessed to spread love and sympathy. Such is K'acy McGee. She's an aide in Pine Manor Assisted Living . You cant miss her when you enter its [...]

    3. The Sound of LightBy: Claire Wallis5 Unputdownable STARS!!!This is my first Claire Wallis book to read and what a story it was. This story needs 100% complete attention while reading it. The web that is woven in this story is woven so perfectly, that up until the VERY LAST Page, the story is unfolding. I am sitting here right now questioning my ability to give this book total justice with my review because it is JUST THAT GOOD!!! The writing is perfect, the story is one I’ve never read before [...]

    4. DNF -I was unable to connect this story at all. As always, Wallis' strong voice, solid characters, and imagination seems to flow effortlessly. The prose is beautiful and robust but almost too perfect. It felt as if that was the base of the story. Once I realized the gist of the subject matter, my interest waned considerably. This is a definite matter of it's me, not the author.

    5. This book wasn't at all what I was expecting While it was well written to keep the readers interest, the move K'acy's secrets were revealed the more I didn't like the book. The fact that K'acy being could see how someone was going to die right before it happened was an interesting concept (view spoiler)[ but the fact she was actually killing everyone out of compassion, is what I didn't like(hide spoiler)]. While I feel for those that are suffering, I whole heartedly don't agree with her actions. [...]

    6. First posted at Words Fueled by Love.So this was much different than the previous two books I had read by Wallis. Push and Pull. Check those out too! Where those books started out pretty intense and kept me on my toes, this book is more laid back and chill and had a much slower build. The POV felt a bit all over the place if I'm being honest. It was definitely unique in that it bounces back and forth between the main character K'acy, her dead father George, and various former residents at the nu [...]

    7. The Sound of Light was about the character K'acy who was talented with her StingRay bass guitar who performed with Jerrold in the Crackerjack Townhouse band. She also worked at Pine Manor nursing home a few days a week taking care of patients serving their last days or months on earth. When K'acy was five years old her daddy taught her how to properly break the necks of doves they killed at the quarry to end their suffering. Later K'acy would use this peculiar talent to help her patients at the [...]

    8. This book was nothing like what I expected. It was deep, it will throw you for some curve balls, it held this beautiful love story that I felt was destiny. There was drama, there was sadness, and there were times that I held my breath. This is my first book from Claire Wallis, and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. You have K'acy who is very different from most heroines I have read. She is gifted, she is kind and her overall character was so much more complex that even I can describe in this re [...]

    9. This is my first read by this author and I was hooked.This standalone story is an exceptional story!The writing was superb, the story gripping and emotional. The story of K'acy is complex, inspirational and thought provoking. K'acy has a special gift and how she uses it affirms the power of love and compassion. The choices we make what motivates us to do what we do. How the story unfolds had me totally absorbed by the words and feeling the emotions the characters were going through.

    10. Interesting storylineI really liked the mystical aspect of K'acy's empathy but wasn't too thrilled with the reality. As for Adam's actions, not to happy there either not matter the circumstances. While the story was captivating, I didn't like the message.

    11. I’m seriously wondering if I could write a review worthy of this book. It’s not my typical read but I’m so glad I took the time to give it a chance. It’s beautifully written. One of the best books I’ve read this year! I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this one!

    12. I'm a Claire Wallis fan. I loved Push, it was absolutely epic. So I had very high hopes for The Sound of Light. However, it's been a while and my reading preferences have shifted and I'm reading only 100% contemporaries right now. And maybe this was paranormal, but I'm also not sure if K'acy had some psychiatric issues. I honestly couldn't tell. While the writing was smooth and effortless, the story itself felt like it was in limbo. There was nothing I was itching to get to. I don't mind a simpl [...]

    13. Spoiler Free ReviewI was so excited when I heard the news that  Claire Wallis was releasing a new book.  Her debut novel Push was released in the spring of 2014 with the follow up of Pull in winter of 2014.  Both of those novels made my top favorite books of the year.  They were both six star reviews.  The writing was beyond excellent and delivered in quite a different manner than most novels.  The story was delivered from multiple perspectives and POV's that slowly gave the readers an in [...]
