Into the Light by Aleatha Romig

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…

My Thoughts:
Aleatha Romig is one of my favorite authors of all time. I've also found cults strangely fascinating most of my life. When I saw that her book, Into the Light, which is about a cult, was able to request on NetGalley, I had to request it. I'm so happy that I got approved. I loved the book. I read it a week ago, and still can't get it out of my head. Its definitely in my top five favorite books this year.

Aleatha had this magical way of story telling. I don't know how to describe it. All of her books are captivating. From the first few sentences, the books hook me in, and I don't move until I'm finished. Into the Light was no exception to that rule. In the book, there were some crazy plot twists and turns that had me flipping pages until about four a.m., trying to figure out what was going on. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, she would throw something else in, and make me rethink everything I thought I knew.

The characters were so wonderfully written. They were complex and deep. There were several times I wanted to get into Jacob's head because I had no idea what he was thinking, then holy crap! When I finally did get a glimpse inside his head, I was blown away. 

The ending of the book left me astounded and speechless. I had no idea that was going to happen. After I finished the book, I sat there completely dumbstruck. I wanted there to be more so badly. I can't wait for the sequel, Away from the Dark, to be released. I will definitely be picking it up day of release.

I give Into the Light: 5/5.

I received a review copy from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated on this review.
