Summary of the Book:

Don’t fear the dark. Fear the light.

The end came when light changed. It decimated humanity, leaving scattered bands of survivors stumbling in the dark.

Faced with saving himself or his family during the apocalypse, John Piscus made the wrong choice, and has been living with the guilt ever since.

When a glowing girl shows up at John’s shelter begging for help, his instincts tell him to kill her. After all, light kills.

But when masked troopers tasked with capturing survivors come after them, it’s up to John to protect himself and the girl. Not only may she hold the key to reversing the lethal effects of light, she could also be the one who can save his soul.

If you love dark settings and characters faced with tough choices that result in horrific and sinister outcomes, don’t miss this post-apocalyptic horror read.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have always loved horror stories. There is just something about the unknown and scare factor that gets my heart going and pulse racing. The main character John is faced with a lot of hard choiced that he believes has damned him. He knows that he has to do anything in this new world to survive. That is when he meets another survivor that asks him for help and he knows that light kills. He does make the decision to help her and they to keep hidden from those that are looking for survivors. This is a thrilling story and kept me wanting more. I might have to look in to earing more Post Apocalyptic stories.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
