A gripping tail full of danger, suspense and mystery. It deals with supernatural, evil and darkness, but at this point it's not focusing on the dark, but the light. I hope it stays that way as the series continues.

I didn't plan on reading this book as I'm not keen on this genre. But I was curious about Rebecca's writing style. So I read the free Sample. By the time the sample ended, this well-written story had slithered its way in and sunk its fangs. I just had to find out what happened next.

As much as I tried, and I tried because it was a book written by a friend. I just could not get into it. Nothing against the book, it just wasn't my cup of tea.
