Brighter Than the Sun by Darynda Jones
(Charley Davidson #8.5) - Reyes Farrow
All his life, Reyes Alexander Farrow has suffered the torments of the damned. Only one thing has given him hope: the woman who radiates a light that no mortals can see; a light that only the departed can see...
Told from his point of view, BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN chronicles the first time Reyes ever encountered Charley, and how their relationship has been the one thing that can either save him or doom him.
Yes! I glimpse into Reyes mind! This novella is told from Reyes point of view covering from Charley’s birth up until Charley goes to visit him when he is in the hospital in a coma in the first book. It takes us through his tragic childhood, the things he had to do to survive. His relationship with his sister and Armador. His time in prison and how he watched over Charley growing up. He thought Charley a dream, a figment of his imagination up until he finally saw her in person the first time. Reyes childhood was heartbreaking but his inner strength is beyond amazing. The telling of this book is a lot darker and has a more serious tone then any of the books from Charleys POV. Im so glad we got this brief glance from Reyes POV and hope we get another one!
