Into the Light #1
Aleatha Romig
Thomas & Mercer

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…

It’s not very often that I read a book in one sitting. I usually don’t have time and I usually don’t get so caught up in a story that I let all my other responsibilities slide. This was not the case with this story.  I dove in head first and never bothered coming up for air.


Sara and Stella’s story run parallel to each other and while you are certain they are somehow connected, you would never be able to figure out why. I have long since given up on trying to figure out the twists that she will throw into her stories because I am always wrong. Every. Single. Time. The craziness that comes out of this author leaves me in shock. And though I found myself saying, “Wow, this is messed up” repeatedly, I also found myself unable to put this book down.


I am always completely drawn into Romig’s stories. The worlds that she creates are completely captivating. This story is relevant and completely believable. Things like this do actually happen every day in some capacity whether we are aware of it or not. Her characters are also multidimensional. She has a way of slowly revealing their layers and changing what you thought you knew about them.


And that ending! Holy cliffhanger! My jaw was left hanging on the floor.  I can only take comfort in knowing that there is more to come with this story.


5 stars and huge glass of red wine! Enjoy!
