Cloak of the Light, by Chuck Black, is a spectacular book. It is filled with both tragedy and triumph at every turn and opens the reader’s eyes to the possibilities of the spiritual realm.
When Drew Carter loses his father at age twelve, his life changes forever. While his mother struggles to support them, even with the help of his father’s friend, Jake, Drew attempts to rebuild his life. Then a move across country makes it more difficult. When Drew begins anew in college, he is relieved. But an accident in the physics lab with his friend, Ben, leaves him blind and his friend missing. He believes life is essentially over for him, but his sight returns, bringing the ability to see spiritual beings that no one else can see. Drew and his friend, Sydney—a Christian trying to encourage Drew, search for Ben in an attempt to solve the mystery of the spiritual invaders.
I enjoyed this book very much. In fact, it was hard to put it down! It is action-packed and full of suspense. I loved Sydney and found myself applauding her for her choices, difficult though they might be, and Reverend Ray and his family were also much of an inspiration.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense novels.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
