The Light Within Me (Six Saviors 1) by Carly Fall

When Abby and Noah meet, there is an explosive attraction between them that neither can deny...

As a shy, awkward, social misfit, Abby has gone her whole life feeling as though she's different from everyone else and she simply doesn't fit in well with society as a whole. She longs to feel a real connection with someone, and she finally does when she meets Noah.

Unbeknownst to Abby, Noah is from another world and his sole purpose is to hunt down the evil of his people that was unleashed on Earth hundreds of years ago. He's certain he isn't going to be able to return to his home, and anger and the need for revenge are his constant companions. His focus has been eradicating the evil and making them pay for taking his life on his world away from him.

Noah tries desperately to fight his attraction to Abby so he can keep his focus on his mission. But when Abby gets dragged into the evil and mayhem from Noah's world, he realizes that maybe with Abby he can find a home here on Earth...if he can save her in time.

What if there were aliens leaving among us, who had to come to earth to stop their fellow aliens. Meet the six saviours: Noah, Talin, Jovan, Hudson, Cohen, and Rayner; who all came from the planet SR44 to Earth to find and destroy the Colonists. The Colonists are what they call the prisoners who under their justice system are banished from SR44 to surrounding moons for crimes they've committed. The six Saviours thought it was going to be an easy job, since they were part of the Battle Squad, the highest rank of military on their planet and they don’t have forms like humans but misty forms.

But they were wrong. The Colonists have taken human forms and the Saviours have spent the last 200 years searching and taking them down. But they have multiplied and the group is starting to wonder if they ever will make it back home, since they've agreed not to return until all were destroyed and any evil descendants. It's slow work. But they've got all the time in the world, as long they don’t fall in love with a human, which in their terms means too much pleasure. And then they will live to humans standards, instead of 2000 years.

The first book is about Noah the leader of the group while he's hunting for the seventh Colonist. He meets his downfall in Abby, who discovers him by chance while doing her research as a crimes journalist. Noah is the only link between the group and humans and doesn’t like that he's been found out and doesn’t want to meet with her. Her voice does something to him and soon he can’t say no to her.

It's an unique combination that I can’t just classify as fantasy since the author has the aliens have paranormal abilities. I won’t give it away but each of them are unique and it will be interesting to see how they take on a human lifestyle in the coming books. Noah's book was enlightening and interesting to read. I have to give this book 4.5 stars.
