Sara Adams awakes blind, unable to remember the most basic details of her life, but her darkness seems a blessing when she discovers the terrors of The Light.
Stella Montgomery investigates the news on the mean streets of Detroit, where she’s noticed a disturbing trend: young women are vanishing. When her best friend disappears, Stella investigates—despite warnings from her police detective boyfriend—following a twisted trail that leads her through the city’s most dangerous and forsaken precincts. There she uncovers something more sinister than she could have imagined: a shadowy organization known as The Light, led by the enigmatic Father Gabriel.
As Sara struggles to understand her place in the strange world she’s awakened to—an oppressive cult demanding unquestioning obedience—and her feelings for Jacob, the husband she can’t recall and whose harsh and tender attentions confuse and beguile her, Stella risks all to discover the truth. But enlightenment always comes with a price…
Incredibly clever, disturbingly realistic, and positively creepy!
This is a thriller that transports you into the darkest corners of the human psyche and takes you on a roller coaster ride of psychological manipulation, control, indoctrination, murder, corruption, and deviant ideologies.
The prose is precise, original, and descriptive . The characters are dynamic and complex. And the story is perfectly plotted, powerful, creative, and magnificently twisty.
I guarantee that this story will ensnare you right from the prologue and the ending will blow you away.
This is the first book in the, The Light, series and is set to be published on June 14, 2016. And after reading this story you will definitely be counting down the days until the second book “Away From the Dark” is released later in the fall.
This novel is due to be published on June 14, 2016.
