INTO THE LIGHT and AWAY FROM THE DARK by Aleatha Romig

☕ ☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
Suspense, deceit, and chilling discoveries. The Light series is always one twist and turn away from making you gasp with shock. Aleatha Romig captures a raw emotion that propels the story to shed the light on the darkest parts of human nature.
The story begins in INTO THE LIGHT where we are introduced to Sara, her husband, and The Light, a cult lead by Father Gabriel. Page after page, the reader will be brought into this world which becomes so engrossing that you can't stop reading. By the time you are reading AWAY FROM THE DARK, you will not know which way is up.
These books will leave you wanting more. Though the book will give you some closure at the end, there is definitely room for more books in the series which I hope and pray will come.
I loved both of the books in this series, so trust me...this is a must read for any thriller fan out there.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE SERIES:
Into the Light
The Light Series, Book 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 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…
Away from the Dark
The Light Series, Book 2
Nine months ago, Sara Adams awoke with no memory. The man holding her hand told her she’s a member of The Light, a tight-knit religious group led by the terrifying and charismatic Father Gabriel. As a woman in the community of The Light, her duty is to be unquestionably obedient and to submit to the will of her husband.
But as Sara’s memory starts to return and she remembers her past, she sees that everything she’s been told is a lie. The Light is an insidious and dangerous organization, and its corrupting influence reaches well beyond the confines of the remote campus where Sara is being held.
With everything at stake, Sara struggles to sort out her true memories from her indoctrination. The desire to escape consumes her, but who can she trust? And which other followers of The Light were forced into this life, brainwashed to believe they belonged? The more she remembers, the more it becomes clear that Jacob, the man who calls himself her husband, is keeping shattering secrets of his own.
But Sara cannot flee alone, leaving innocents behind. She must fight to extinguish The Light.
