As the electronic pulses that caused the power outage finally come to an end, thirteen-year-old Beth Branning witnesses two brutal murders. She narrowly escapes the killer and runs away in terror. But he knows who she is, and it’s just a matter of time before he comes after her.
Torn between fear and compassion, Beth tries to help the grieving wife of one of the victims. But will her bravery cost Beth her life?
As the power begins to be restored, the Brannings face their toughest crisis yet. Will God require more of them this time than they’re prepared to give?
New York Times bestselling suspense author Terri Blackstock weaves a masterful what-if novel in which global catastrophe reveals the darkness in human hearts—and lights the way to restoration for a self-centered world.
“Blackstock is absolutely masterful at bringing spiritual dilemmas to the surface and allowing readers to wrestle with them alongside her characters.” —RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars (of Dawn’s Light)
I appreciated the involvement of the Christian faith
This is a good book; a fast and smooth read. It’s the last of a series; however, it’s the first I’ve read. It reads fine as a standalone; there were a few mentions of prior incidents, but not to the extent to interrupt the story. I still plan to read the rest of this series; but out of want, not necessity.
The story line was not unique; but it was done extremely well, with unique and well developed characters. The suspense was page turning; I literally couldn’t stop reading. There were some parts where the repetitiveness made it a bit wordy, or over-explained, but other than that. I loved it!
I appreciated the involvement of the Christian faith; we need more books like this. I love to see books where families worship and pray together; but there were some aspects, I did not agree with. Having been in the same place as Kay, some of it hit close to home; but faith in my LOVING God is what helped me through. I don’t feel God needs to cause some great wrath to get world’s attention; I share my faith simply by the life I live....Beth
