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 from the mean streets of Detroit, where she’s noticed a disturbing trend: young women are vanishing. When her best friend disappears, Stella digs for answers—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.… FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I read other reviews so I knew there was some type of twist coming at the end. But OMG, I had no idea and was blown away! I immediately purchased book 2 Away from The Dark. I am just happy I discovered this after both books were published. I am really hoping it isn’t a trilogy because I am not sure if my anxiety can handle waiting for a third story. Into the Light is one of those stories that will make you want to throw your book, e-reader, phone or whatever you happen to be devouring the material on. I think if I could have reached in and slapped a character I would have, many, many times, and multiple characters. This story turned me into an anxiety laden, outraged woman. I mean, how dare they do that to those women! It made me sad, sick and pissed all at once. Not a normal feeling I get from a book, yeah, some characters needed to be slapped! Or strangled. Is it healthy to have rage towards fictional characters? Into the Light is such a complex, and intense mystery and Romig is brilliant in the weaving because you never see the twist coming. Not to mention the narrators were amazing. I don’t want to ruin anything. But you must get it now! I am giving it 5 Boundless Stars, I loved it.
