Into the Light: A Review (The Light #1)


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.…

  My Review:

Cult's are terrifying.

Into the Light just shows how terrifying they are. The amount of brain washing, the creepy way they treat their people, and the abuse that goes on.

Sara is in a world where men are in control, where if you don't obey your husband or any other man, you are beat. She has no memory of her previous life, but she comes to trust her husband, Jacob.

I hate Jacob. He disgusts me. He talks about how much he loves Sara, but if he really did, he wouldn't beat her or yell at her, or force her to kneel when he comes home from work. Gah.

Outside of the The Light (the cult), Stella is doing her best to discover what exactly is going on...only when she gets to close...

This story was really good. However, there is a LOT of language, especially the "f" word, gag. And the sex scenes are a bit too descriptive for me, although they do demonstrate the culture of this cult... *shiver*

Despite my qualms, this was a captivating story.

3.5 out of 5!
