Review by Sara:
I was provide a copy of Little Light Episode One in exchange for an honest review and I would like to thank Roger Schick for the opportunity.
I found myself in such a state of anxiety the entire time I was reading Episode one. I was so hooked.
We have two stories going on simultaneously. Bryan is telling the tale of him and his childhood friends capturing a child molester and killer back in the 80's. The man that was just released from prison. Who Bryan believes just kidnapped his daughter in the middle of the night.
This is where the dual stories start. Bryan is struggling with today's modern justice system and the killers equal rights. He knows in his mind who has his daughter. The man who he helped put away when he was just 12 years old! The police are doing nothing! You can feel Bryan's frustration pain and utter uselessness as he struggles with a justice system that is working at a snail's pace and protecting the bad guy!
We flash back and forth from the current situation with Bryan's missing daughter to his recollecting what happened all those years ago. We have a name of the killer/kidnapper but we still don't have the entire story of what happened back in the 80's.
I love the flashbacks! I am a child of the 80's and it is so nostalgic WOW! I am right there!
This story is left at such a cliffhanger you have to immediately read Episode 2. The author provided both copies and I will be starting that next!
When a novel can make me laugh, cry, have my heart pound with anxiety and I'm ready to crawl out of my skin because I don't know what is coming next, that is a brilliantly fantastic novel!
